Ya'ah'teh. My name is Nazbah Tom. I am Dine. In my cultural practice of acknowledging and honoring all elders and ancestors, it is important for me to introduce my clans before explaining more about the work I do. I am Ashi'hii (Salt Clan) and born for Bitah'nii (Folded Arms People).
My maternal clan is Lookaa'dine'e (Reed People) and my paternal clan is Too'di'chii'nii (Bitter Water People). I came to offering somatic work as a form of healing and community building. My practice of moving toward healing began with my own work of questioning difficult and confusing circumstances in my childhood that moved me from my home in Arizona to college in Colorado, finally landing in the Bay Area for graduate school.
It is here that I came into my current identity as a Queer, lower middle class, Urban Native, poet with an instilled cultural ethic to support community in growing towards healing.The "work" I offer then is based on allying with individuals to begin a practice of noticing, listening and trusting the body to hold healing and resiliency as competently as it does trauma and survival.
This process invites both practitioner and client to build together a process that engenders safety, trust and connection which in turn inspires the body, mind, spirit and cosmos to come in to more alignment with each person's values and longing.I welcome you to greet your breath, introduce yourself to your elders and ancestors, and to become the generous and sacred Spirit you already are.
