The Short Version:
I am dedicated to the process of helping people restore health, sanity and vitality to their mind, body and soul through the process of trauma transformation.
The Full Version:
I live and work in Vancouver , BC with my lovely wife Irene Lyon, who’s work you should also check out. We have two cats, Sid and Sylvester.
I’m also the proud father of the best son ever, Jevah Lyon, now a teenager almost as tall as me!
I received my BA in music composition and percussion from Eastern Washington University in 1996; however, rather than pursuing a career in film scoring or some other profession,I opted to spend the next 15 years in remote areas of the United States living apart from the mainstream to better study the mind/body world the old-fashioned way, through self-immersion.
I explored various forms of meditation, shamanism, sound therapy and energy work – to name a few.
Through my own healing journey I developed an experiential understanding of the profound inter-relationship between thought, emotion and sensation; and how the unresolved stressors of the human experience can lead to blocked-up life force and illness in the mind, body and soul.
I have recently refined my ability to work with these dynamics through training in Somatic Experiencing, the ground-breaking work of Dr. Peter Levine, which focuses on restoring vitality, capacity and health to the human nervous system through the re-negotiation of traumatic experiences.
In my private and group practice in Vancouver, BC, I work with people to help them contact and re-engage with their innate wisdom as both members of the animal kingdom and as spiritual beings in a human body. I am committed to the process of helping people to recover from trauma and re-discover ALL of who they are through the process of Trauma Transformation.
