eddy levin mcgrath
I am Eddy and am offering somatic body work sessions. Following the Pantarei Approach, I combine verbal communication with intuitive touch to facilitate flow and integration of the body(mind). I believe in each individual’s inner capacity to heal, transform and access embodied resources, strength and spaciousness.
My role as a practitioner is to offer a container in which the client can tune into their own embodied experience and feel empowered to express, release, hold, or be with whatever their whole self needs to process during the session.
What to Expect
At the beginning of each session, you are invited to share whatever feels present for the given the day, your mood and the dynamic between us. To continue supporting our conversation, I then offer intuitive touch, usually on a massage table. Standing, sitting or moving around the room is also an option. Wear clothes that you feel comfortable receiving touch in.
I also offer online sessions in order to make my work available to people who don´t live in Berlin and to those that online sessions work better for. While in person, I practice with physical touch, online we will find ways of connecting to the body while staying in dialogue. I may guide you through somatic exercises, self-touch or offer prompts for connecting to yourself and your physical space. Primarily, we will follow whatever you need to go through together, and stay in a verbal conversation, practicing staying close to our intuition and physical senses.
* I am currently offering the first online session for free ! *
Sessions are 60 minutes long and I ask for a sliding scale fee of 40-80 Euros. If this pricing is not available to you, please write and we can try to find an exchange that works well for us both. I also offer a few free solidarity slots a month. If you are able to afford the higher end of the scale, this is supporting me and my practice to offer more affordable sessions to those who cannot afford to pay more. I ask you to consider what access to resources you have and how you usually distribute these when making a decision on how much to pay. I am also happy to have an honest conversation about it and find a price together that feels good for us both.
I am a certified practitioner of the Pantarei Approach where I trained in Berlin and have been giving sessions since September 2021. I am also an educator in Emotional CPR (eCPR) .
I offer sessions in English.
I am a white, trans*non binary, neurodivergent, able-bodied queer person with Jewish & Irish-Scottish settler ancestry. I was born in Tkaronto/Toronto and have been based in Berlin for 6 years, where I have been involved professionally with various creative practices, including dance, film, drumming, improvisational music and group play with crafted objects.
As a practitioner, I am committed to being present and practising non-judgement with my clients and myself. I am aware of how we carry intergenerational trauma and paradoxes in our bodies, and I’m continuing to learn how intersections & systemic oppressions affect each person differently.
I’m always open to feedback on how I can offer sessions in ways that more empower my clients.
