Today we’d like to introduce you to Christabel Armsden.
Hi Christabel, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I was fortunate to be raised in an open-minded family, with parents who explored Buddhist principles of being, practiced meditation and intelligently discussed possibilities for life beyond life. I was fascinated throughout my childhood and twenties with spiritual and esoteric teachings, yet despite regular forays into various workshops, meditation groups and plenty of avid background reading, I avoided a deeper calling for many years – pursuing instead a career in art dealing and curation. At a certain point, the sum of living life in a somewhat unconscious fashion for many years caught up with me. Despite outward success, an existential inward sense of hitting the very ‘bottom’ forced me to reconsider. I made a commitment to release everything I knew and had worked so hard to establish and to follow my authentic calling, whatever that may be. I haven’t once looked back. Five years of deep and often difficult inner seeking followed. Much of this time was spent in quasi-retreat abroad – ashram stays in India, traveling Nepal and the mountains of Bali – exploring practices such as Vedanta, vipassana, zazen, craniosacral therapy and energy healing. I established Field Dynamics – specializing in contemporary energy healing – in late 2018 and we have been building our offerings in training, private sessions and one-off events ever since. I’m now a certified coach in addition to being an energy healer and a committed student of both Vedic counseling and Ayurveda.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I recognize I can only go as deep with my clients as I have been myself. It was clear to me at the start of my awakening path that not a single belief or preference I held could go without contemplation. There were some very difficult periods as I reviewed my past choices and who I had become, spending extensive time in meditation and inner processing. I now maintain a committed daily sadhana (self-practice) combining pranayama, meditation, asana and energy healing. Teaching and learning are one and the same to me – as time passed I realized it was important for me to start sharing some of what I had learned to help others. In addition to being a facilitator for our 100 and 200-hour energy healing training, I offer a unique blend of therapeutic coaching and energy healing in one-to-one work with my clients.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Field Dynamics?
Field Dynamics is setting the standard in energy healing. We offer professional and comprehensive training in energy work, private sessions and additional courses in associated areas such as breathwork and extrasensory development. Our flagship training is a 100 Hr Energy Healing course which has been fantastically received – many of our students are choosing to continue on to our certified practitioner training. I also work one-to-one with clients offering either pure energy healing or a unique blend of therapeutic coaching combined with energy work. My three-month program is particularly popular. Whilst it helps clients achieve specific goals in areas in which they are currently blocked, the focus is on principles of right living and how to take powerful steps to discover and align to your values by making congruent and conscious choices. In short, how to bring more harmony and inner peace to your life. Who doesn’t want that?
Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
Happiness for me has become more and more about the present moment – finding joy in simple activities, bringing beauty and ritual to everyday living. Non-attachment and moving lightly in this world are essential… that, and surfing! The ocean is where I’m most content.
