Abstract or Description

This chapter presents the voices of three women co-authors who speak to their own and each other's bodies in their supervision encounters over time and their multi-faceted supervisory relationships over time.

The authors identify key aspects of their supervision experience that hold sacred their embodied presence as woman practitioners in service of their clients.

Somatic Body Mapping, developed by Annette Schwalbe, is the creative method used to contain their exploration of the sacred feminine.
