I know something about your life isn't working like you know it could.
You're not alone. I've been there too. And there are others you'll meet soon, going through tribulations of their own.
Throughout this course, I'm going to be personally leading you through the most effective ways to break out of painful patterns, whether they be love patterns or patterns of 'disease'.
You will not walk out of the circle the same person that walked in. Every facet of life connects with every other, and as we broaden our inquiry, healing will happen. Guaranteed.
It doesn't matter whether your struggle is in love, health, work, or play. Now that you're here, I can support you. The pathway opens...
Here's the story...
The Bloom System™ arose out of many years of diligent research and intensive somatic (touch-based) sessions with clients. As I worked with individuals, I began to notice the the archetypal patterns. There were things I was repeating again and again. Though the content of the lives were shifting, many strategies worked in almost every instance.
As I worked with individuals, I gradually began to wonder how to reach a broader audience.
As I wandered, I looked across the field and noticed the dandelions, glowing like beacons of hope, spreading wildly.
How can we honor and harness that, I wondered? The answer was delivered.
BLOOM. A radical system modeled after the elegant design of the dandelion.
The Bloom Manifesto
I recently wrote the Bloom Manifesto as a brief overview of this original system.
I gifted this to my community. (These are the seeds of change... open your hand... they're yours).
If you haven't downloaded your free copy yet, please do so here:
The fundamental facets of life have been gathered up into 12 original seeds:
Play • Vitality • Expression • Courage • Compassion • Integrity • Knowledge • Wisdom • Leadership • Love • Legacy
Root whatever seeds you can root in your life, and your life will be improve dramatically. Sometimes just becoming aware of the distinctions and rerouting focus to one of the seeds begins the process of change. For the other times, we'll be excavating your core patterns in a variety of fresh and original ways.
The manifesto is an overview. For those that crave more depth (in love, life, work... anywhere) I created the Bloom Radical Healing Circle.
A few examples of Beautiful Breakthroughs:
- When a client and I discovered that her decade-long chronic shoulder pain was symptomatic of missing her father, shedding tears and completing the grieving process healed the shoulder.
- A client who was always ill discovered that, as a child, she was only shown affection while ill. As we honed in on that pattern, illness was no longer necessary, so she healed... and she and her husband were able connect on much deeper levels. In fact, they decided to have their first baby soon after, after years of marriage!
- I worked with a client around reclaiming her voice ('lost' since childhood). We worked at the root of the pattern, and traced it back to its origins, in school, around the time of a shift in the home life. I demonstrated ways to break he pattern's spell on her. Soon after, she wrote me and let me know that she'd met her soul mate, after years of painful relationships.
- When a client and I discovered that her lack of economic stability was connected to her grandfather, who worked as a doctor during WW2, she changed her life strategy, and her strategy for connecting with her ancestors. Her business improved substantially.

The Bloom Schedule
July 18th - October 20th, 2017
The 12 SEEDS OF CHANGE will be scattered 'across a field' of 12 weeks, at a steady pace, via various media (video, audio, writing, calls).
You can either focus on the seeds that thrill you, or diligently go through them all / you can go through with us or at your own pace.
Week 7. Integrity
Living in alignment with your own values is essential to a rich, fulfilling life. Without a baseline of integrity, vitality is impossible, and wellbeing is unsustainable. So if our life equation involves a disproportionate amount of suffering, we can broaden our inquiry. It may be debt, or withheld anger, or repressed sadness, or a poor diet, or a negative mental state.
A lack of alignment in life can manifest as a misaligned physiology. Carrying ‘twisted’ thoughts can manifest in a twisted spine, for instance, and living under the weight of debt or other burdens can create a slumped, heavy posture.
Week 8. Knowledge
Knowledge is sacred. We can use knowledge to recreate our life from the ground up. Many of us abnegate our responsibility by putting our most important decisions into the hands of ‘experts’, at great cost. A doctor, a surgeon, a financial planner, a therapist will never know more than you about the whole constellation of stories that you are. It is our responsibility to accumulate knowledge about our reality, so that we can apply it to our lives, and make decisions that move us forward on our path of evolution. This continual learning sharpens discernment, so that when the systems of control attempt to hypnotize us with misinformation, we are better equipped to resist.
Knowledge becomes leverage that can be used for shifting realities, perhaps at a rate never before known. Relentlessly asking one question will drive you to poverty and disease; relentlessly asking another can make you a billionaire.
Week 9. Wisdom
Wisdom is undefinable, and its essence is ineffable, but we know when we encounter it. The direct experience of ‘wisdom’ inevitably arises out of this process of clearing blockages and impediments from our life systems. We carry wisdom with us as we walk side by side with our ancestors. We can draw on the wisdom of our bodies, and the collective wisdom of humanity. If we are indeed ancient souls incarnated in human form, this is a source of wisdom as well. So the question, to paraphrase Socrates, is about forgetting what we think we know, so that we can access what truly resides within us.
Week 10. Leadership
We are the ones we have been waiting for. Those on the path of awakening can choose to pass on the spark and plant the seed of awakening in humanity. We cycle our awareness and our advances back into the earth.
As we create the future through our vision, leadership is the ability to raise a bridge to that vision. I’m referring here to ‘leadership’ as a way of being, rather than a list of strategies or values or qualities. As we stand centered in our truth, others are influenced. As our light radiates, others are called. Leadership is what occurs when we stop dimming our light, and begin letting our reality influence that of others.
Week 11. Love
How many great men and women have been rendered powerless by the simple, ethereal gaze of their beloved? How many fortunes have been thrown away and vast empires toppled? We rush into love and wonder what we’ve done. We finally get out and loneliness descends. It can be a frustrating escapade. And yet, coldly and calculatingly attempting to avoid love’s perils never works, either. Love is the quintessential human experience.
When we are instruments of love, the machinery runs smoothly and without requiring our attention. Our systems are fluid and flexible. When we are instruments of love, the deepest parts of ourselves surface, and aliveness flourishes.
Week 12. Legacy
Shifting the focus to legacy lifts us up out of the mundane, into the sacred. It a leap from the burden of ‘work’ to the poetry of creation. Time is an artificial construct, and over the ‘years’ we entrain our entire physiology to revolve around days, weeks, and years, and finally to wind down to die as if on cue (often on a Monday, the start of the ‘work’ week). Legacy is a way to overflow the bounds of time and dance with eternity.
By rerouting our energy into creations intended for posterity, we can transcend suffering, pain, and trauma. Poverty consciousness cannot exist alongside considerations of legacy, because legacy is a above ‘survival’ in the hierarchy of needs.
Week 1. Play
Play is a redemptive act. Humans are designed to interact with the natural world for the sheer joy of it. We tend to forget that, as over time (years and decades), we are conditioned to ‘work.’ Play opens up the energy systems, because it transcends resistance by including it. The obstacle becomes a part of the game. In one grand act of play, one can surface and resolve unconscious patterns, or seed the inspiration that blossoms into a creation that shifts a culture.
Week 2. Vitality
Vitality is our birthright. I define ‘vitality’ as the full flow of life intelligence coursing through the human system, which we can harness to architect our selves and build our legacies. It is a higher standard than ‘health’, because it is not only the absence of disease, but the absence of disease consciousness. Vitality is a dance with life, in a world dancing with death.
Week 3. Expression
Rediscover your voice (or find it for the first time), and use it. Losing the voice at some point in life is a profound childhood wound for most. I don’t only mean physically, but also the metaphorically lost voice.
This stagnant energy will find expression. As soon as it sees a pinhole, it will rage to break through. You may find yourself flying off the handle for a seemingly minor offense, or frozen in terror before a seemingly random visual clue. Obviously, this can erode relationships and other enterprises over time.
Only unbridled expression moves that festering energy out of the system.
Week 4. Courage
Without courage, there is no transformation, no enlightenment, no healing. Courage is the ability to move through the inevitable fear in order to translate our intention into reality. Without courage, nothing is ventured, nothing gained.
It takes courage to look into the deepest recesses of ourselves, and face down our demons. It takes courage to identify and ask for what we need. It takes courage to shift to more empowering paradigms. It takes courage to see and transcend the mass hypnosis of the world around. It takes courage to balance the machinery of war with the rapture of love. It takes courage to discover beauty everywhere, and to bow in reverence to it. Deep love is always courageous act. A full bellied laugh is courageous in a world so pregnant with violence.
Week 5. Compassion
Compassion heals the spirit, and thereby, the body. We live in a world where we’ve been relentlessly programmed to see ourselves as separate entities. In an infinite universe, most relent and choose to subsist in little boxes. We fiercely defend our little box. When so much energy goes toward clutching, without consideration for the welfare of others, compassion begins to seem like a luxury. In reality, it is one of the most essential components of aliveness.
Week 6. Presence
Now is all there is. If you are not present to this moment, you are missing life. I often use the analogy of watching the river flow by, versus diving in and experiencing the rush directly. It is a weak analogy, because the shore is just as alive as the current. But perhaps you get the point.
I also make the distinction of presence as an embodied process. Life happens where our body meets the present moment. Many advertised paths to presence are merely mental; ie, watching the mind. While that can be valuable, I’ve found embodied processes to be more effective.
Stand before a friend, a stranger, or the one you love, and notice how much of them is actually showing up to meet you. How much of you is showing up to meet them? When someone touches your skin, where have you fled to?

A Few of the Resources We'll be Using...
I'll be your guide on this journey of wild unfolding...
My name is Steven Budden. I'm the founder of Flow Healing Arts, and Budden Enterprises. I am the author of Flow: An Illuminated Training Manual, The Flow into Joy Journeybook, and the Bloom Manifesto. In case you don't know me, a series of awakening experiences, culminating in a broken neck in 2008, served as my epic stumbling onto this path: 'alchemist of broken hearts and bones.'
I've lead the online healing course, Rapture: Sacred Intimacy as a Healing Path. I've supported a wide array of clients over since 2011 orchestrating awakening experiences and healing trauma and relationship patterns.
We're going to be using the tools I've created and adopted over the years, including various worksheets, lessons from my original books, original somatic strategies, holistic postural analysis, sensation and emotion tracking systems, esoteric anatomies, dietary strategies... anything that helps break the past's hold on us.
I recently spent a few years living in a remote cabin in the Redwood Forest, seeing clients while I contemplated and refined this system.
Working with me privately requires a considerable investment of time and money. I created the Bloom Radical Healing Circle as a way to engage with a broader audience, for those that may not be able to engage with me personally, for whatever reason.
My experience and training is so unique (I'll talk more about that below), that I tend to approach every healing issue as a contrarian. This would be mere novelty, if what I've learned and discovered didn't produce such dramatic results (see testimonials below).
"I don’t want to stay folded anywhere,
because where I am folded, there I am a lie.
and I want my grasp of things to be
true before you."

Recent Testimonials for Private Sessions
“Every second with Steven has been pure healing.
I have had fifteen years of difficult and painful illnesses and emotional struggles; I’ve been to doctors and healers and yogis and medicine men and nothing has had the impact that just a few sessions with Steven has had.”
-Brian Bugh, Product Developer, San Francisco, California.
“It is both blazingly simple and obvious how working with Steven has made my life better, improved my well-being, and made me a happier person.
Benefits: Processing 40+ years of emotions to be able to move consciousness into a present-oriented awareness, accepting myself a great deal more and sharing myself with others in ways that lead to greater understanding and provide more happiness and joy; completing my long-held intention of writing and publishing a book.
And on and on, NOW, the key difference with Steven is: I did not exercise willpower to accomplish any of those states of being.”

My life has completely changed since I worked with him, and for that I'm forever grateful."
Jessica Gregory, Entrepreneur

I am working, living and so happy again.

-Tamara Albaitis, Entrepreneur / Artist, San Francisco, California
In the past 6 months, he's completely changed the way I relate to my physical body and in turn, my life. We've spent hours releasing the armoring I've created in my body, diving deep into the places that have been most locked down, painful or numbed out and using them as portals to the feelings I've pushed away. As we do so, memories of my youth rise up out of my unconscious, bringing insight, moving energy and releasing shame, sadness and anger.
I've been able to feel my emotions more profoundly than ever before.
Ben Hart, Director of Marketing, The Shift Network
"Grateful, hopeful, radiant, healed, and excited. A higher power lead me to him and I'm so thankful I took the leap of faith to work together. After 23 years of different therapies & treatments, he was able to access the core of my ailments to align my body, mind, and soul. If you're ready for a transformation, look no further! "
Lindsey Roberts, Sebastopol, California
"Since working with Steven, I've launched my first high-end program and am working with some amazing, inspiring women, I've met a wonderful man that I've started dating (after 2 1/2 years of being really, really, really single), and I feel like I'm forming a lot more close relationships in my life.
I'm feeling the walls I've had up for my whole life begin to come down.
Without Steven, so much of what I'm experiencing now wouldn't be possible."
-Anastasia Netri, Transformational Coaching for World-Changing Women
"The world seems like a different place after a session with Steven.
I feel trusted and trusting in his space and can allow my deepest, truest voice to be heard in his presence.
He will nudge you over that small roadblock of your mind and help you to realize how easy (or difficult) it was to overcome. Then you will learn how glad you are to have gone through it.
- Ben Frese, Project Manager, Surfer, San Francisco, California
“I felt so safe & honored in that space. Steven is deeply respectful, sensitive and completely focused on getting your body, mind and soul in alignment. There is so much stored in our bodies from childhood and life experience that simply has to be released through this type of work.”
-Zoe Wild, Spiritual Life & Business Coach, Oakland, California.
“Steven’s regression and re-patterning sessions helped me address the most powerful blocks and emotional traumas I had incurred throughout my life. Never have I been able to go so deep into my shadow or entrust anyone with that dark part of me until Steven began working with me. Thanks to him, I’ve had access to more profound healing than any other practice I have tried.”
Mari McRoberts, Purchasing Manager at Excelsior SuperFoods
“Working with Steven was the catalyst to some wonderful personal healing and transformation in my life that has made me feel more accepting of myself, more present in my body and has allowed me to connect more deeply in my relationships. I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such an amazing person and I could not recommend him any higher!”
Krista Durbin, Entrepreneur, San Mateo, California
“I am so lucky to have found Steven! He is very attentive, hearing, seeing, sensing and even knowing what and where your body needs healing. It is amazing what he has addressed that no other healer have even come close. So much has changed in my life and I have only had 4 sessions!”
-Teresa Shen, Owner - Eastern Medical Center , San Ramon, California
“You are a marvel! You helped me clear things that I’d been struggling with for years. I really feel like a completely new person! I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have found you.”
Anu Singh, Psychologist and Ultrarunner, Saratoga, California
“I NEVER thought I would ever get to experience the kind of emotional release that I experienced through one session with Steven. With his supportive and calming coaching I was able to allow myself to release stored energy that had been weighing heavily on my heart and mind.”
Annika Olson, Account Executive at RxTE, Pleasanton, California
"After each session I felt like I had had a major breakthrough. I have now for the last year restored myself into the flow of life. I have been able to create my ideal life where I am pursuing my passions, traveling the world, enjoying greater physical and financial freedom, and am surrounded by the kind of love, I never imagined possible. Most of all in this journey, Steven was the kind, loving, witnessing presence, who helped me relax into my deepest being and allow myself to be, blossom, accept, and love myself."
Samanvitha Rao, Former Cisco Executive... now Adventurer / World Traveler, India
“My sessions with Steven were profound. I learned to look at my thoughts, my language and my posture to identify negative patterns and to shift and transform those patterns into healthy, positive and empowering ones. He also helped me to tune in and listen to my body, to feel the sensations and to recognize what those sensations mean. He did some deep bodywork to root out and release trauma that I had been storing. This brought up many things spontaneously, from childhood incidents to current challenges and anxieties. The work we did together was intense, inspiring and produced clear and concrete results.
I am more confident, energetic and clear on my life purpose. I have a deeper understanding of my true, authentic self, and how to maintain that authenticity. Steven has given me many tools to continue on this path of health, happiness, and well-being.”
During the transition out of a toxic job situation my executive coach suggested that I go see Steven; "the best thing you could do right now would be to get out of your head and into your body - Steven's the guy to see." I trust my coach, so I went, and it's been a profound experience.
When we met I'd come to accept a certain amount of anxiety, sleeplessness and intestinal distress as the price of middle age. Nine sessions later it's easy to forget all the years I lived with those symptoms without giving them much thought. Steven touched and released traumas I didn't even know were stored in my body, including those held by my family going back for generations.
I'm more present, connected and content than I was before meeting Steven. I even stand taller and breathe easier.”
“With his guidance, I have been able to unlock some deep truths hiding inside and to take the first step needed to be that change I wanted to see in my world. This was what enabled me to radiate again. I cannot be thankful enough for this gift as now I feel I am finding myself again.”
