Transform your nervous system for Happiness
Samadhi Bodywork is a somatic healing process that harmonizes your body, heart and mind, bringing you (your nervous system) into the experience of deep inner peace.
Through bodywork, dialogue, breath work, and awareness the process activates your body’s natural healing intelligence. The work allows you to naturally release the physical tension, stuck emotions, and blocked energy in your muscles, bones and nervous system—stuff that feels impossible to release.
Samadhi Bodywork is my unique synthesis of a decade of experience in professional bodywork, clinical training in Somatic Experiencing (SE) and Visionary Cranial-Sacral Therapy, and several thousand hours of meditation practice. Through this journey I discovered that happiness is not "a state of mind", it's the natural state of being, in the body.
My great joy in this process is to help you go “beyond healing”—guiding you in activating the power, presence, and wisdom in the core of your body. As you awaken the capacity to transform yourself, you will feel happy and free as a result.
If you are ready to transform your nervous system, activate your life-force, and embody your deep inner potential, I would be honored to work with you.
Professional Body-Mind Training
I have practiced bodywork professionally for nearly a decade, having accumulated more than 1,000 hours of bodywork training from schools including Esalen Institute and Mckinnon. In 2011, I received a degree in Somatic Psychology from Naropa University. Since then, I completed a three-year training in Somatic-Experiencing Trauma Therapy as well as a year-long counseling certificate training with InterChange Counseling Institute. In 2015, I was a counseling skills teacher on the InterChange Leadership Team,
I have devoted several thousands hours to the practice of meditation. My father, James Baraz, is a Buddhist teacher, author of Awakening Joy, is a founding teacher of Spirit Rock Meditation center. I am a dedicated practitioner of Dzogchen and Mahamudra Non-dual Awareness traditions of Tibet. My primary Tibetan-Buddhist teachers are Dr. Reggie Ray (www.dharmaocean.org) author of "Touching Enlightenment" and Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche. In the past decade, I have spent almost a year of my life in retreat.

"He uses the perfect amount of knowledge and intuition..."
"I am a full time bodyworker. I use my body constantly. Often it is challenging for me to find someone that does the multifaceted work I need. I find his work extremely helpful. He uses the perfect amount of knowledge and intuition. I find sessions with him to be deeply healing on multiple levels. I enjoy the depth of the soft tissue work as well as the breath and energy work. Adam is the real deal and everyone could benefit from working with him. I highly recommend him." - Erika Campbell
