Time & Location

SOMA Temple, Leocharous 6, Athina 105 62, Greece
About the Event
Experience & learn somatic tools of embodiment in our monthly SOMA Circle for women.
Soma is a Greek word meaning body and is the root word for Somatics; a field within bodywork and movement studies concerning internal physical perception and experience. At SOMA, we focus on the internal bodily experience with emphasis on learning from and through the body. Our belief is that we are spiritual beings having a somatic experience. We harmonize Body, Mind, & Spirit through embodied and authentic feeling states to instill love, acceptance and pleasure at the core.
SOMA Circles are a hybrid women's circle, meaning the circles have the elements of sisterhood, community and heart-centered sharing but with the focus on somatics.
SOMA Circle in-person gathering will be an opportunity for you to come into deeper connection with yourself, your emotional body and in relating with other women. Each circle there will be one or multiple somatic (body-based) exercises like conscious movement, breath practices and/or sound play that assist and guide you in regulating your nervous system, toning the vagus nerve, becoming connected, present and aware of your lived body and experience and more. There will be invitational opportunities to connect with the other women at the gathering to share intimately from the voice of the body.
Allowing the body to have a chance to sit in the drivers seat of your life, effects your choices and decision making by building trust, confidence and emotional fluency.
If you are curious about somatics & embodiment, your nervous system, feeling harmonized and awakened, meeting other like-minded women, or my work in general, attending a SOMA Circle is a spring board into living a more authentically expressed YOU!
These gatherings are free because I believe the potency of women's circles coupled with somatics deserves to be accessible to all women regardless of financial status. If you are financially capable, a sliding scale offering of €2--€10 to SOMA Temple are appreciated.
***Please account for enough time to arrive and settle into the space. SOMA Temple doors will open at 7:00. The circle begins at 7:30. The Temple doors will close at precisely 7:30, please no exceptions after the start time and plan to stay for the entire gathering which ends at 9:00, to respect the safe container that we are co-creating together.
SOMA Circles will be offered on the 22nd of each month so mark your calendars now! In numberology, 22 holds the energy of balance, emotions and harmony. It symbolizes manifesting your highest desires and ideals into reality. When women gather the magic co-created is potent. Synchronizing that potency with the manifesting power of our embodied experience as a woman takes us to the depths of remembering our Divine Feminine within, her purpose, passion and pleasure.
Event will be indoors
I expect that all particpants will exercise self-responsiblity and respect of others regarding the Covid protocols according to the government laws of Greece. I ask that all persons entering the temple wash their hands. Hand sanitizer is also available. Please be mindful of distance and ask before giving hugs. Please be respectful of peoples' preferences.
