GREETINGS & WELCOME
Madelanne Rust-D’Eye, MA, R-DMT, RSME
I passionately believe in the transformational power of our body’s intelligence.
We each have the potential to develop a way of relating to our body’s signals that generates interconnection in our personal and group cultures. It is my commitment to teach and nurture this potential in Body-Informed Leadership programs, Movement in Relationship groups, and One-to-One mentorship sessions.
My approach is body-focused, practical and experiential. It is also scientifically-based, informed by the latest insights from neuroscience and embodied psychology, and my training as a Body- and Movement-Based Psychotherapist (MA Somatic Counselling Psychology, Naropa University).
Body-Informed Leadership provides a map to the embodied landscape of historic trauma, holds a strong and informed container for groups to explore, feel, and integrate their shared and diverse histories and experience, and offers transformational, embodied tools to restore our individual and collective bodies to the compassionate, creative, and profoundly interconnective states we are designed for.

At its heart, I see Body-Informed Leadership as a somatic Allyship practice; that is, as a practice that enables those of us who are conditioned by Domination Dynamics to release them at the somatic level, and to cultivate instead the somatic skills and practices that enable collaborative interconnection – with ourselves, and with each other. […]
Body-Informed Leadership teaches that, in order to write a “New Story” based in interconnection, we must learn new ways of relating to our bodies. Our bodies are the place where the most ancient, forgotten stories of our cultures play out; stories which often involve inherited trauma, unprocessed grief, and unconscious dysregulation.
As a result, although we may yearn for connective ways of living and interacting with others, many of us unconsciously embody disconnective patterns in our moment-by-moment ways of being.
Body-Informed Leadership supports us to change these patterns by teaching new ways to understand and relate to our body’s signals.
I support my individual clients, through personalised counselling and mentorship programs, to become ever more receptive to the intelligence and creativity of their embodied selves, to compassionately hold space for areas of fear, sensitivity, or suffering, and to develop the confidence and self-expression to skillfully bring their full, embodied selves into their lives, work, and group cultures.
