Let go of the story

 

 

It’s OK that you feel what you feel.

Feel Fully’s philosophy is that it is better to feel anger, sadness, disappointment, or any emotion in the moment than pushing it away. 

You don’t have to try to be positive all the time. Instead, by allowing yourself to experience a full range of emotions, you open yourself up to bringing in more joy and hope. 

 

By accepting everything the present moment offers, including negative emotions or physical pain, you let go of the suffering that comes with wishing things were different.

about me

Have we met? I’m Simone, and I help women with infertility and endometriosis get out of survival mode so that they can live their lives with more ease and joy. 


After a year and a half of trying to conceive, I was thrilled and surprised to find out that I was pregnant. I had been practicing a variety of different meditation techniques every day for two months since I started attending a Mind-Body Fertility course at a Toronto hospital. When I started miscarrying, I had a toolkit of strategies and resources to fall back on that I had already been practicing. It amazed me how resilient I felt, even through the grief of pregnancy loss. 


This horrible experience led me to quit my job as an elementary school teacher and start Feel Fully because I know how little emotional support most people get in the medicalized world of infertility and endometriosis. Now I co-facilitate that same course I took in 2019. We help women with infertility and going through IVF build a toolkit of calming techniques so that they can feel more resilient and self-compassionate on their fertility journey. 

 

Do we have anything in common?

  • I’ve trained as a yoga teacher, fertility and birth doula, French teacher and ESL teacher
  • I have a Master’s degree from the University of Toronto
  • I was diagnosed with endometriosis at age 30, after experiencing symptoms since age 13
  • I’ve done 4 IVF cycles… and counting
  • I’ve lived in Italy and Japan
  • You can find me belting Adele in my car, playing the piano, or cuddling with my cat

"Simone offers a space to observe and reflect upon our feelings. I've experienced so many breakthroughs during the course, and they keep continuing! This course gave me the opportunity to slow down, and take the time to tune in. Simone encourages us to acknowledge our feelings, and to honour them, as they are the guideposts to designing a life that enhances and supports our own self-worth. "
Heather

"Simone has a calming voice that makes it easy to follow her into meditation. Her guided instructions lead you gently into your self and allow the freedom to explore what is needing reflection and attention. Her ability to create a safe environment to feel emotions and be vulnerable with ourselves provides powerful learning."

"Thanks, Simone. I truly believe this course has been instrumental in helping me navigate my emotions, and during a time like this, proven to be so incredibly helpful for allowing me to feel all the emotions I am experiencing, without fear or shame. I am thankful for what I have learned from you to be able to guide me in the process of healing; mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, and on a mind-body-soul level. "
