Welcome to the playspace of Alimá Transformations. We want to share our space and hope you can help us put together some of the building blocks of transformation that the world keeps calling for daily.

Integration and wholeness – getting in touch with your core presence.

Many of us have been cut off from the wisdom traditions of our own culture and therefore from ancient sources of healing, guidance and meaning. With Alimá we have the opportunity to tap into these sources that have always been available across cultures.

Transformation and integration emerge from listening to your story; helping you access intuition; dream and energy work; exploring your gifts and helping you develop a practice of integration. Find the connections between your story and the ancient stories and wisdom that connect you to your own inner wisdom, growth and healing.

Alimá provides guidance and support for transformative work as well as witnessing and accompanying you on your healing journey. It is not a medical practice. There is much wisdom in finding the appropriate kind of resources to match what you need. If you are being treated with conventional medicine, traditional forms of healing, or non-allopathic medical systems Alimá can help support this other work. Some health issues might be dealt with through Alimá and not require other forms of treatment. Actual experience can indicate if this is advisable in any individual case. Alimá does not provide magic, cure-all pills, although people have made remarkable recoveries in the past with this work as with other forms of healing.

Being the cultural and social beings that we are it is truly astounding that we concentrate on individual responses to life in ways that tend to push or deny our social being. Playspaces combine the depth of both the individual journey and group intelligence. As we work in a group setting the individual gets a chance to access the wisdom of a group culture created specifically for the purpose of transformational work. At the same time, the playspaces give us an opportunity to deepen our knowledge of our own unique gifts and resources.

green stoneIndividual healing and transformative work
We start with listening to your story, reading your energies and being with you in witness of where you are at right now. We will then work with your “body radar” to hone in on what is most calling for attention. Our main work is in being a still witness and then responding to what you bring. Our work then moves between dream telling, telling your story, working with your energy, emotions and your very own gifts that you always carry in your own unique way. We will work with the resources that you have.

Groups are just as alive as individuals. They get born, grow, mature, die. The have their own intelligence, their history, their sensitivities, character, good days, bad days. Group intelligence guides all transformation work we do. From communal dreaming to visioning sessions, we can access the deep resources of the group and move through the cycles of transformation normal to each group.

  • Respects and values all cultures and draws on them as sources to reconnect us to the earth, our own spirits and the often untapped energy for healing found there.
  • Works with your unique gifts and those from your own culture and family
  • Draws widely and deeply on gifts from other cultures.

Alimá is word in Guene, a language spoken by enslaved Africans up to the 19th century in the Caribbean island of Curaçao, with some words and constructions surviving into the 20th century.

Alimá was used to indicate friendship and a tight bond between males. In rescuing this word we are also recognizing that this bond is wider, reaching across so many artificial boundaries of gender, age, ethnicity, nationality, species, life form.

We are all related: humans, other animals, plants, minerals, elements of nature: Alimá.
