THERAPY, MOVEMENT & MEDITATION
WITH AIMEE RAI
Aimee is a natural teacher & therapist - warm, wise, dynamic, and deeply intuitive. She is a truly holistic practitioner expertly weaving modern science and psychology with ancient wisdom and somatic practice. For those accustomed to more clinical environments, Aimee's approach to wellbeing is refreshing and potent.
Aimee is an ACCPH fellow and supervisor. She specialises therapeutically in trauma (in all its forms and guises) having studied with some of the most respected and pioneering trauma specialists in the world including Bessel Van Der Kolk, Steven Porges, Gabor Mate, Arielle Schwarz, Pat Ogden, Peter Levine, Dan Siegal, Richard Schwarz, Eric Gentry of The Arizona Trauma Institute and more.
Aimee is also the creator of Medicinal Movement™ - an artful fusion of trauma informed psychological somatics, with Kum Nye Tibetan Yoga and relaxation, Tandeva (original Kashmiri Shaiva free movement/dance) and meditations inspired by the teachings and practices of the classical Indo-Tibetan Tantric Traditions.
She is currently under the mentorship of Dr Miles Neale ("Gradual Awakening - The Tibetan Buddhist Path to Becoming Fully Human" & "Advances in Contemplative Psychotherapy"), Rob Preece ("The Psychology of Buddhist Tantra") and Geshe Tenzin Zopa (Unmistaken Child).
"A modern day wise woman"
a note from aimee
"My work is truly holistic in its nature. I believe that the deep peace and radical freedom we all deserve to experience can only be revealed through working in an integrative manner, with the whole person.
Science and psychology play a vital part in my work, but I am not a clinician, nor am I classically trained by choice.
I am a therapist, but I am also a tantrika, an artist, a dancer and a healer. I know the power of ritual, movement, meditation and breath. I know that the body contains more wisdom than most of us can imagine and that healing is a somatic experience - not an intellectual idea.
Everything I teach and share with others is more than just rhetoric from a textbook - it is born of my own experience, more than 15 years, walking the path, doing the work, and awakening from within."
