About Joseph Day

Many years ago, I experienced a deep awakening.  I was at a deeply painful place in life when a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner gave me an experience of witnessing myself more deeply than I had ever experienced.  Life opened up dramatically.  The psychoeducation of the way trauma interacts with the brain, body, and relationships made staying awake possible for me.  I no longer interacted with people through my own wounds, fears, and traumas.  People were deeply impacted by my presence.  I found out later that I was doing the work of skilled facilitation intuitively.  I then trained in SE and refined my skills and set out to give the world what I had been given.  I learned how to facilitate more complex cases of trauma.  Sometimes when a trauma is the root of disease and a trauma unravels rapidly, people call it energy healing. My spiritual philosophies are simple, connection is everything and trauma is its chief adversary.  And yes, through connection I have routine access to states that you might call mystical.  But I am not attached to these states nor to the meaning that arises from them.  They are supportive glimpses of a deep mystery that still remains a mystery.  I am however, in love with the human soul and enjoy watching people find their deepest parts.  Deep personal truth can often only be revealed in mystical images and encounters.  They are our deep vulnerable story and witness of the deeper mystery.  In my mind, they are meant to be shared to connect people to ourselves (which is often very supportive), not as an authority on ultimate truth.  If you consider yourself spiritual and would like a companion to a journey that is wholly yours, I can provide that.  If you do not consider yourself spiritual, that's okay too. I am also level Two certified in Stan Tatkin's Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT) which complements this work quite well. Working with me you will learn to tune in with compassion to both the silenced voices from inside, and the true heart of those you love.  I offer individual sessions in downtown Los Angeles (90017) and Santa Monica (90404).  I work through optional touch and through talking and guided awareness.  People are often surprised by how well the connection works in Skype sessions as well.  I also offer intensives and workshops in the beautiful and serene Malibu.  These intensives are a great way for a couple or a small group to drop into a deeper level of connection and trust that they can take home with them through refined agreements.
