The Mosaic Journey with SSP Group Experiential is a 6-session multi-sensory journey designed to support you in moving through stuck patterns, anxiety, worry, depression and more. The main anchor of this program is the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) which is an auditory and therapeutic intervention utilizing treated popular and classical music. In the Mosaic Journey, I’ve added special enhancements and guidance: a personalized mandala, revealing art prompts, symbolic movements, and other healing elements. The enhancements are a combination of my own experience/inspiration and the SEGAN Method developed by Ana DoValle.

In this multi-part exploration using color, sound, art, movement, personal narrative, co-regulation, and soul-exploration you’ll have the opportunity to create positive transformation and increased nervous system regulation. Utilizing the Safe and Sound Protocol with trauma informed co-regulation and support from myself and your group-mates, it is possible to experience a powerful and spiritual transformation. 

Each listening session follows a thematic ‘heroes journey’. The process reveals patterns and helps connect us deeply to our essential self so that we can bring gentle support to aspects of us that have been left behind, forgotten, or frozen in a troubling experience or time of life. Your hidden patterns, sense memories, and painful experiences will be revealed and processed during this gentle guided process.

As your guide, I offer Somatic Experiencing (SE), TIST-Trauma Informed Stabilization Treatment (somatic parts work), and Somatic Touch expertise plus years of client experience to support you in this transformative journey.

Within this small group, you will listen to the SSP Classical Flow playlist on your own headphones and smart device while we are all together in private Zoom meetings. Each listening session will include art and other processes that enhance the listening. The timing of all will be guided and supported by me and will ensure that you are not taken beyond your capacity at any point. The SSP music is designed to bring a sense of safety and comfort and can also reveal content from experiences that are ready to be healed. I’ll gently support you in processing these memories, emotions, and sensations using SE and TIST.

How the SSP Supports Clients

Clients have a wide range of experiences with the SSP / Mosaic Journey. Each experience is individual, but I’ve seen common results with clients.

  • A new or increased sense of feeling grounded, present, and/or embodied
  • Connection with the: observer self / wise mind / adult self / current age self / higher self…
  • which results in the ability to really notice, ‘unblend’, and be compassionate with wounded parts of the self
  • Painful experiences/memories/parts of self arise from recent or distant past to be understood and gently processed
  • and much more

This Program is For You if…

  • You are committed and active in creating change in your health and well-being
  • You have experience with personal somatic and/or body-based therapeutic work
  • You have an understanding of connecting to the body and experience with tracking sensations and/or with other patterns of activation/dysregulation
  • You have at least one safe-enough human or animal as emotional support in your life
  • You live in a safe-enough (non-dangerous) environment
  • You have participated in group classes or other group experiences in the past
  • You’re not actively struggling with an addiction(s), DID, Bipolar, BPD or other serious mental health issue

What is the SSP?

Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, the Safe & Sound Protocol (SSP), is an auditory intervention consisting of specially treated classical or popular music which is designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience.

The SSP uses the auditory system as a portal to the vagus complex, which controls our physiological state. Once physiological state is regulated, we can accelerate or enhance subsequent therapy. There are 3 Pathways as part of the SSP: Connect, Core, and Balance. These pathways are delivered in a thoughtful way to provide the best outcomes for the client.

The SSP is a research-based therapy showing significant improvements in the following areas:

  • Client’s ability to stay in the present moment
  • Anxiety, worry, depression
  • Trauma related challenges
  • Stressors and emotional difficulties

The SSP is a potent intervention. While listening, it is not uncommon to have past experiences, memories, sensations, patterns and thoughts that are sometimes uncomfortable arise. I will partner with you to assist in working with and processing this content. That being said, my commitment is toward gathering a group of individuals who are experienced and ready to receive the SSP with others. Not everyone is a good fit to receive SSP in a group setting. Please check all of the items below that apply to you.
