‘Soma’ -the whole of our present, direct experience. In Sanskrit-the moon’s lunar nectar
that clears illusion, revealing true nature. ‘Arts’ -the creative expression of our Universe, inner and outer. Offerings include: Yoga, Meditation, Dance, Reiki Intuitive Touch, and Hypnotherapy in Private and Group Sessions. All Private Sessions begin with a brief interview.

Wisdom Within Private Sessions: Access Your Inner Resources
Every session begins with a personalized interview to clarify and ground preferences, resources and intentions. In this time we also ground what is needed for a safe container and clear boundaries. I will answer any questions you have about the wisdom and training behind each modality. Depending on You- I will then draw from a wondrous menu of: Relaxation , Reiki, Hypnotherapy, Sensory Awareness, Intuitive Touch, Shamanic Journey, Oracle cards, and Divine Love. In stillness and/or movement. Optional enhancements include earth elements of water, sound, stones, simple aromatherapy, and/or audio recording. Each session uniquely emerges for the person and moment. Afterwards you will have as much time as you choose to be in silent absorption and integration. When appropriate, we will discuss any practices and/or affirmations to take with with you, as well as followup support or sessions or support. Phone sessions and personalized, recorded guided meditations also available. When possible I like to give you the interview questions in advance, so you have time to reflect and prepare in your own way. I also like to check in with you within 48 hours after your session, if possible.
