GREETINGS & WELCOME
Madelanne Rust-D’Eye, MA, RSME/T
For over a decade, my life and work have centred around the question: how can somatic paradigms and practices support decolonisation, and enable a restored connection to place, community and culture in the West?
Body-Informed Leadership is my response to this ongoing inquiry. It is both a methodology and a community of practice which cultivates a way of relating to the body’s signals that enables us to unwind collective trauma, increase our capacity to feel, express and value diversity, and restore the somatic integrity of our cultures for a more just, joyful, and interconnected world.
Please see my identity and accountability statement here.
Body-Informed Leadership 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.

The Oldest Story July 2020 (NOTE: If you have not yet read the previous parts of this series, they can also be found on this page. Part 3 can be read here). Dominance is a nightmare. It is founded in a dysregulation and distortion of our neurobiological, psychological, and spiritual design as human beings. […]
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 provide individual somatic mentoring (online and in-person) for people who are coming alive to the potency of their embodied, sensory selves and who want to fine-tune their relationship to their own Nervous System and internal sensory landscape in a way that transforms the world within and around them.
This process involves touching into areas of resilience, meaning, sorrow, and dysregulation from present and ancestral lifetimes in order to release patterns of distortion at the deepest level, fully receive the gifts of learning from the past, and to compassionately re-weave a more integrated and conscious Somatic foundation.
