EMBODY THE
WAY OF NATURE

RETURN HOME TO YOUR BODY
RETURN HOME TO EARTH

ECO-SOMATIC RESILIENCE & COMMUNITY PRACTICE

Our connection with earth is inherent, and the experience of belonging is not conceptual, but of the relational body. Through cyclical living, eco-somatic resourcing, and bioregional placemaking, we support you to awaken your innate ecological intelligence and profound sense of belonging with the natural world through rituals of embodied reconnection. You will learn to attune to relationship patterns, natural processes, rhythms of change, and cycles of transformation that support you to honor what is while surrendering to the Great Mystery of what lies ahead. 

Together, let us foster a resilient earth culture for generations to come.

SACRED GROVE

The Sacred Grove is a powerful online community of individuals seeking to align with nature and the cosmos. Together we honor the cycles of sun, moon and stars, and explore seasonal and astrological teachings that help you reconnect to the language of your inner and outer world.

1:1 SESSIONS

Through a range of healing modalities, we support you to remember your sense of purpose and connection to the web of life. We believe that the awakening of the individual is essential to the healing of the whole. Find home within and awaken your sense of belonging to the living earth.

"To heal ourselves, we must remember that we are a small part of a much greater whole."

- adrienne maree brown

Eco-Somatics is a field of embodied research and practice that nurtures Embodied Belonging. It combines the knowledge systems of Somatics and Deep Ecology to develop our felt sense of self to include the relational field of our living ecology and cosmos. 

Somatics recognizes the body as a source of wisdom and innate intelligence from which we can orient our lives, while Deep Ecology recognizes the interconnectedness of all phenomena, and that there is intrinsic value and consciousness that exists in the wider ecology.

Therefore, eco-somatics helps us to understand in an experiential way that our interconnectedness to the living world happens through our bodies, because our bodies are an extention of earth. Belonging is embodied to the extent that one is attuned and responsive to the wisdom of the earth / body continuum.

We are being called to mend our estrangement from the web of life,

to remember our belongingness to the living world,

and to allow space in our lives to be re-enchanted by the song of Earth.

WELCOME!

We are Jess & Michelle. It's an honor to have you here. 

 

We specialize in transformative, body-centered and earth-based resourcing practices that support you to restore your primal connection to the living earth, nurture embodied wisdom, and reconnect to your inherent wholeness. 

We believe that earth is calling to humanity through the collective discomfort and cultural crises of these times and is asking each of us to rise and reclaim our purpose in service to planetary healing and resilience. For us that means embodying transformation, nurturing  ecological intelligence and awakening to the dream of earth stirring in our souls.

 

We are heading the call to embody the dream of earth by weaving ourselves back into kinship with the living world. We are remembering our way home by apprenticing ourselves to the way of nature. To embody the way of nature is to live in harmony with the natural rhythms of life, perceive with multisensory capacities, develop a reciprocal relationship to place, and listen to the way earth moves you.

When you learn to embody the way of nature, every cell of your being opens to the gift of life, awareness of interdependence (and trust in that) grows, and this compels you to live ever more boldly in service to that which generates and nurtures life. You experience the soul pleasure of being awake, present to the wholeness of your life unfolding in a web of kinship.
