A lumen is the basic unit for measuring brightness. It is a measure of the total quantity of visible light emitted by a source. In biology, a lumen (plural lumina) is the inside space of a tubular structure, such as an artery or intestine. It comes from Latin lumen, meaning ‘an opening.’

Kendra is dedicated to each individual’s personal process of living a life in service to their greatest Lumen. Her work is an experiential inquiry into limitation and freedom in our bodies and our lives. She believes that we can access and discover truth, insight, clarity, and inner guidance through the body. She blends shiatsu, bodywork, and movement practices with philosophy. She uses these practices as tools to investigate challenges, emotions, limiting beliefs and thought patterns, our relationship to pain, and suffering so that we can transform that into the strength and freedom of opening and aligning with what is most in service to our hearts.

    PRACTICES FOR SELF REGULATION OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM

    PRACTICES FOR SELF REGULATION OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM

    This is a recording of a class I taught as an opening class to the winter Foundation Training series of 2024. I talk about why I have decided to start the 2024 winter courses with a class purely on self-regulation tools before getting into any of the physical practices. I share personal stories of self-regulation in some heated moments, all about each practice, and how these practices can really increase our window of tolerance, help shift us from being primarily in sympathetic nervous system into the parasympathetic where healing can happen, and how they can put us at the center of our own health, healing, and journey. In the end there is a guided experience through three practices. 
    I share three practices:

    PRACTICES FOR SELF REGULATION

    This is a recording of a class I taught as an opening class to the winter Foundation Training series of 2024. This episode starts with the class settling in and getting all the comfy blankets and supplies out to really sink in together. Then I talk about why I have decided to start the 2024 winter courses with a class purely on self-regulation tools before getting into any of the physical practices. I share personal stories of self-regulation in some heated moments, all about each practice, and how these practices can really increase our window of tolerance, help shift us from being primarily in sympathetic nervous system into the parasympathetic where healing can happen, and how they can put us at the center of our own health, healing, and journey. In the end there is a guided experience through three practices. 
    I share three practices: 
    Orienting  The Felt Sense Resourcing The one thing I didn't say about resourcing in this recording, is generally not to use another person or an animal as a resource because sometimes when you think about them, you can also remember something really challenging about them. For the resource, pick somthing that is just solidly & purely easeful, pleasurable, or comfortable.
    I hope you enjoy this! Please reach out to let me know if these practices impact you positively or if you have any cool experiences with them!

    LETTING GO: UNCERTAINTY & SELF WORTH

    TRANSFORMING RESISTANCE TO STABILITY

    TRANSFORMING RESISTANCE TO STABILITY

    TRANSFORMING RESISTANCE TO STABILITY:
    In this podcast I talk about the opportunity inside of feeling resistance. How resistance can be a door opening instead of a door closing.
    The role of the nervous system The breath Creating a bullet-proof nervous system The process of training ourselves to allow and to relax into discomfort Working with fear. The parts of ourselves... the part that is sort of hysterical and the other part that is present, open, curious about what will unfold and creative / working with what each moment brings.  Developing willingness... not forcing or oppressing ourselves but being curious and open, willing to feel Letting go of preferences Getting out of the way of our life moving forward The process

    OUR DIFFICULTIES | OUR GREATEST TEACHERS

    OUR DIFFICULTIES | OUR GREATEST TEACHERS

    IN THIS PODCAST I TALK ABOUT:
    – Our difficulties are our best teachers, but only if we know how to learn from them. 
    – Wounding in Childhood, being disliked
    – Conscious engagement with our pain
    – The heart and the mind
    – How to use experience as fodder for the work
    – Taking the lessons from our practice out into life
    – Resistance, preferences, acceptance, allowance, process & the pillars of practice
    – Enduring the long journey
    – Opening up to our true nature
     
    NOTE: Near the end of the podcast I talk about two students who are confronting resistance to difficulty.  When I listen to myself, I heard irritation in my voice and I took the podcast down, worried they would hear that instead of the passion I have for the pivot point they are in. I took the podcast down to edit it and make it right but through great urging, from those who had a chance to listen, to put it back up, un-edited and raw, I am re-posting it without any edits. I want everyone who listens to know that the moment these two students are in is the moment I live for. It's the pivot point. The tone in my voice is about that passion, it's what gives meaning to my teaching. If you hear irritation or rushing in my voice, it's my own irritation and rushing with myself within this exact moment that I am connecting to, it's the work I have yet to do for myself. Their lesson is my own. I cherish these two as students, friends and fellow travelers who share a commitment and fire for self study that matches my own!
    I am re-posting it, unedited and raw, largely because my acupuncturist urged me to put it out there saying that it's my job, as a teacher, to be slightly irritating, that it can bring value, movement, and growth in places of stagnation, if students choose to take it that way.
