Somatic Mindful Guided Imagery®



Live online group portion of the course meets weekly beginning March, 16 2024, ends September 14, 2024, 11:30am Pacific Time

How is Somatic Mindful Guided Imagery® different than other popular healing methods?

As awareness has become more prevalent that trauma is healable, more and more wonderful approaches have come available and incorporated into therapeutic work in a few short decades!

In 1800s Paris, France, Dr. Pierre Janet primarily used hypnosis with hospitalized trauma patients to help them heal, with astounding results. Though it went out of fashion for a while due to politics in conventional therapy at the time, its power and popularity have remained in the background, and resurged in popularity, as it has continued to resolve trauma in the hands of skilled practitioners - even before conventional psychotherapy came round to naming PTSD and later rediscovering that trauma is healable. SMGI® incorporates and demystifies some of the most beneficial elements of Hypnotherapy in easy, simple, clear ways, and shows how our most ancient ancestors used it to heal with the power within.

Really a category of a style of journeying within, Shamanism has been something all peoples have practiced to communicate with multiple levels of existence, experience, and life-forms to access information, personal power and healing. SMGI® goes beyond conventionally taught shamanism, with simple steps that connect you to your power and resources, so you can clear your inner clutter, and retrieve your soul fragments so you can be whole, integrated and free.

The best Life Coaching draws your own best ideas and solutions out of you and helps you realize your strengths. SMGI® incorporates powerful subconscious blocks clearing methods along with specific coaching components that help you access the power of your deepest desires, so that you will be easily propelled into and beyond the dreams in your soul.

If you value the way Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, developed by Francine Shapiro, reduces the charge activation of traumatic episodes, you’ll love how SMGI® empowers the completion of incomplete rites of passage, leading to an experience of achievement, triumph and initiated wisdom.


If you admire the “bottoms up” philosophy of Somatic Experiencing, developed by Peter Levine, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easily, gently and quickly SMGI® gets you resourced so you can release the unexpressed survival responses held, stored and carried in the mind-body system.


If you appreciate the Internal Family Systems model, developed by Richard Schwartz, you’ll love how SMGI® simplifies parts work, with some similar, yet different understandings and protocols that heal and integrate the various parts quickly and gently in simple ways.


If you know of the benefits of releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma with the Trauma Releasing Exercises developed by David Berceli, you’ll appreciate the subtle and gentle ways SMGI® supports one’s own Natural Expulsive Reflex to release what’s no longer beneficial from the mind-body systems.


If you’ve heard how psychotherapy has benefitted from incorporating Trauma-Informed Stabilization Treatment, developed by Janina Fisher, into a less pathologizing way to increase motivation to overcome self-destructive impulses, you’ll be relieved to know that with the simple formula in SMGI®, you can support healing of complex trauma by allowing the client’s own inner wisdom to show the way.

If you value focus on calming inner chaos while resolving the root cause of problems, and ending traumatic events without reliving them, as with the Instinctual Trauma Response model developed by Louis Tinnin and Linda Gantt, you may be surprised at how little mapping-out of the details of traumatic events is required with SMGI®, as your inner wisdom takes you to where you need to go to create the results you desire.


If you admire the way the psychotherapeutic method of Compassionate Inquiry, developed by Gabor Maté, explores the root cause of addictive behaviors and the distorting impacts of various traumas, while helping the therapist unveil what lies beneath to create recognition and liberation, you’ll love the ease of the SMGI® steps that educes all this from the client’s own inner wisdom in a way that is ideally suited to support their desired outcomes.


While high quality Guided Imagery has been shown to support sometimes miraculous change, the invitational and interactive way it’s used in the SMGI® formula incorporates an elegant trifecta of receptive, directive and interactive forms that educe your own most beneficial images, according to your own inner wisdom. With this model, there’s no need for the facilitator-guide to come up with images for the client-journeyer to comply with.


If you’ve explored the benefits of bringing your attention into the present moment in a nonjudgemental way, you’ll find the SMGI® version of Mindfulness to be super simple to use, easy to incorporate on your feet, eyes-open, in up-tempo life situations, and a quick trick for calming, settling and stabilizing your nervous-system. 


Healers and SMGI®

Gina Vance.

I'm Gina Vance, a Mind-Body Coach who helps people feel better, do better and be happy.

As a Mind-Body Mentor and Inner Journey Guide for over 20 years, as well as being an intrepid soul on my own healing journey, I've developed a simple, repeatable system for guiding yourself and others, that has surprised me, my clients, and my colleagues with the sometimes miraculous results this system facilitates.

You'll discover how to easily:

  • Connect to inner resources of strength that support meaning, purpose, motivation, and a sense of safety.
  • Clear away inner obstacles including subconscious limiting beliefs, false identities, disharmonious energies and trapped emotions, unresolved traumas, trauma response programs, energetic blockages, incomplete rites of passage, non-beneficial energies, and subconscious agreements, contracts, & vows.
  • Retrieve and reintegrate dissociated, split-off or fragmented inner aspects, that are needed to resolve inner conflicts and resistances while unifying strengths.

Though woven together in a seamlessly flowing experience, when elements of SMGI® are called out from other modalities, this training readies you for a very high level of service with confidence, ease and solid skills.

On completion of the course, you’ll have the knowledge and experience to use these descriptors of your work in your marketing as an SMGI® Guide.

Working with individual clients and groups of students in this work over the last two decades has taught me: to get the most out of a personally and professionally life-changing training like this, you need:

investmentimmersion and interaction.  

To support your commitment to your growth, learning and service, I offer a full refund guarantee for this training. If you're not satisfied with your enrollment for any reason, simply email me by the evening of Sunday, March 15th. This is the day after our first live class on March 14, 2024. 

You can attend your first class and then sleep on it, allowing your own inner guidance system to validate whats best for you.
