Today I’m chatting with Sukie Baxter, a friend and colleague from Seattle.
Sukie is a behaviorist who believes that if you can’t feel your own body, you will be constantly searching for something “out there” to fill your emptiness and make you feel alive.
And, well, we connect on all sorts of levels – being tall women, having a background in Structural Integration, being self-employed, and more.
Sukie draws on her background in linguistics, manual therapy, athletics, and energy medicine to create a systems-level approach for examining the forces that shape us — our behavior, world-views, bodies and even our very neural make-up.
Through her digital consults, in-person sessions and signature program, The Space Lab, Sukie takes a practical approach to personal transformation, using tangible, body-based exercises to shift not only how her clients are moving their bodies, but also how they’re moving through the world.
She teaches her clients how to embody change by grounding it in their cells and nervous system, using a process she dubs somato-sensory attention training to affect brain tissue.
When not working with clients, Sukie can mostly be found sipping coffee and learning from her wisest teacher, a formerly-wild mustang named Shelby.
Enjoy our ramble through the fairytale The Princess and the Pea as well as Sukie’s relationship with her body and creativity.
