Shiome Healing Circle with Judith Hancox
by Elizabeth Boisson
Transforming disturbing memories to positive images/thoughts/feelings in the ‘magic circle’ is a protocol developed over decades of study and practice with significant mentors and healers - from Dr. Art Frankel, founder of the Gestalt Institute of NJ, to Grandma Mechi Garza, Indigenous American Cherokee Medicine Woman. Shiome means ‘rip current,’ and the Shiome Shift is designed to transfer one’s disturbance to peace of mind within this 2-hour session.
From Judy Heun:
The Shiome Healing that Judith Hancox offers is an amazing opportunity for those on this healing journey. Judith is so generous with her time and brings years of experience in the trauma healing field to help me get beyond the pain and feel joy again. I’m so grateful for her and the team of shining light parents that support this monthly event. We bring to each session a traumatic memory and a joyful memory. Through the process we work to release the trauma and feel the warmth and energy of happiness/joy. It’s not always an easy process, but as I continue to participate each month I find the weight of the trauma lifting. Besides, Judith won’t let you leave a session until you’re in a good place. And, the support parents are there to make sure of it. I am confident that these sessions are surely something that Judith could get loads of money for, but is so incredibly gracious with her time and talents. I feel I’m moving forward thanks to Judith and the team. Immensely grateful.
From Angela Mastrovito:
I enrolled in the Shiome group because I needed to find a way to work with and effectively manage my grief regarding the earthly loss of my daughter, Rebekah Grace.
I had been searching for something, really anything that would help me through the days and nights. The Shiome method helps along with tapping to "rewire" my emotions and thoughts. I don't try to ignore how I feel, but there are times where I cannot simply break down where I am at. It allows me to redirect my thoughts and feelings without requiring a great deal of time.
When I am "tired" or more like emotionally exhausted, I can sit with the Shiome meditation and relax just enough to be able to complete my task.
I feel like Shiome has also helped me in connecting with Rebekah and sensing her spirit with me when I take the time to be still and listen.
I have reached out to my Support Parent and am thankful that this support is needed as I have been able to share some of my experiences and have found a compassionate heart.
I am forever grateful for Judith, my Parent, Joyce and the group. Each time we meet, I learn something new about myself and the process of healing.
~Shalom, Angela Mastrovito
From Cathy Terhune:
Two things brought us to Helping Parents Heal:
1) We needed to find our son, know he is ok, and connect with him
2) Pain. I couldn’t go on in this kind of physical and emotional agony . The pain of what I call our “dirty grief”.
As a result, I began going to meetings, reading posts, and hours of researching on the HPH website, sharing with my husband to help him on this journey. We were so fortunate to receive a highly evidential reading from beautiful Lisa Wilcoxson. I have received messages from Ian at the medium demonstration meetings and have found beauty and peace in the healing sound sessions with Andrea Courey. All have given us hope and knowing. But when it comes down to the thought loops, reliving that horrific day, and the dark hole I felt in my heart I give much credit to Judith Hancox and her Shiome Healing Sessions.
Judith is an expert in traumatic stress with an alphabet of degrees behind her name. She has developed this combination of science and shamanic healing melded with group healing energy.
Shiome helps transform negative energy into positive in an hour and a half session. I went into my first session rating my pain at a ten on a one to ten scale and came out of it with a one. And that feeling didn’t go away— in fact after two more sessions it seems to be cumulative and lasting.
The session isn’t as long as it sounds as it feels so good and the time flies. It is easy to follow, doesn’t require yogi level meditation skills, and as most things offered by HPH are offered for free. All you have to do is contact Judith in advance to get some simple instructions—her next session will be in September so sign up a few days in advance.
We thank all here at HPH for the love and support we have found here.
