 [sˈə͡ʊmə]

GREEK

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.  

Soma Temple integrates modern practices in the fields of somatics, anatomy, neuroscience, and psychology with ancient, ritual practices, ceremonies and shamanism.  Full body presence tools, integration techniques, and transformative processes are also utilized. These unique combinations reveal clarity towards one’s self, relationships and interactions with the world.

" This [Intimate Somatics] experience was unlike anything I have ever done. I really had no idea what to expect when I started, but as I went along, I found out that's the best part of it! Every session was new and exciting and showed me so many possibilities and things that I was not aware of about myself, my body and my relationships. I learned so much from this process and I will keep all of it with me for the rest of my life. I recommend this for anyone and I feel so lucky and blessed to have been a part of it. There is real magic here. "

Join the Sacred Circle of 

the divine feminine

Group circling strengthens social bonds, validates, creates accountability, provides a space to share truth, own it and make healthy positive changes.  Healing in this way changes the ways in which we interact with other people outside of the circle, with more compassion and understanding.  And with each new interaction we are changing the paradigm and healing the wounding that’s been afflicting the Divine Feminine for far too long.

“Through the experience of ecstatic embodiment, we learn to be and become love” 

~CAFFYN JESSE

I honor and acknowledge your decision to dive deeper into unknown parts of yourself.  It may feel scary, vulnerable or even shameful.  I promise to do my best to support you through your process with acceptance and love.  It is a blessing to be the witness to a woman blossoming, cultivating her intimacy, and reconnecting with her somatic experience.   It is one of the strongest forces on Mother Earth and greatest gifts, we, as souls get to have in this human experience. 

Discovering the work that I'm now sharing at SOMA Temple was my journey of healing and integrating the Divine Feminine within myself.  Parts of me which had never been seen, felt, heard or touched before out of fear, shame, and conditioning,  I now feel at home with.  This path has made me so passionate to empower other women to reclaim their authentic expression, to feel their wholeness, and to be at home within their bodily life experience.  Please reach out to me below to schedule a complimentary 15min. Zoom video call, where we can discuss your intentions & goals.  I look forward to meeting you on your path and the ripples of ecstatic embodiment we will co-create.
 

With love & gratitude,

Melissa
