The Somatic Awakening® Practitioner Program teaches an empowered awareness and engaged embodiment of this powerful healing modality and mystical, spiritual path based on the principles of the Divine Feminine.

This program is for those who want to go much deeper into the depths of your being:

  • Maybe you’ve done work to shift your sense of unworthiness and all of the other negative voices that have caused chaos in your life. But you are ready to go deeper and fully step into and claim your full worthiness, peace, grace, empowerment, and all that your higher self can shower in your life.
  • You are ready to step out of dysfunctional relationships and the feeling of lack in your life; and step into healthy, harmonious connections and the powerful flow of abundance that is aligned to your true essence.

  • You are ready to step into divine empowerment, an awakening of your soul’s purpose, and claiming the miracles that are meant for you.
The Somatic Awakening® Practitioner Program offers a framework, scaffolding, and depth training that helps YOU remember the luminous divine being that you truly are.
Somatic Awakening® arose out of some of the darkest years of my life. I know what’s it like to feel frozen in lack, unworthiness, and fear. For years I navigated the depths of my own and the collective shadows of pain, suffering, and suppression.

Somatic Awakening® was shown to me by higher beings of Christed Consciousness, especially Mary Magdalene. It is a path of pure grace that transformed my pain into peace and opened the door to numerous awakening experiences which totally transformed my life.

I then brought this path into my clinical practice as a Naturopathic Doctor and Mind-Body-Spirit Specialist with amazing results. Here it became clarified and nuanced with many years of practice.

Now Somatic Awakening® is the potent healing modality and spiritual practice that it has become today and has powerfully healed and awakened many others.

The Somatic Awakening® Practitioner Program

The Level I Somatic Awakening® Practitioner Program is a six-month program that runs from Nov. 2022 – April 2023

The Level I program deepens your experience and understanding of the healing, awakening, and evolution possible with the mystical path that is Somatic Awakening®.

In this program, you are taken through the foundations of deeply understanding your own psyche, somatic being, spirit, and soul. You are also taught how to fully engage Phase I Gestalt Somatic Awakening® and Somatic Awakening®: The Practice in your life.

This program also teaches aspects of Quantum Somatic Awakening® that will greatly help to stabilize and evolve your healing and awakening, as well as throw the doors open on embodying your higher self in your life.

This program takes the basics of what is taught in Embody Healing and Freedom and goes much deeper in the breadth of understanding, engaging, and embodying this work. Level I has been recently revised so that it is an inclusive program for everyone, both those who want to go deeper in their healing and spiritual path, as well as those who want to become Somatic Awakening® practitioners.

Upon completion of Level I, those who are interested in becoming certified Somatic Awakening® practitioners will go onto Level II, which is a 6-month program that focuses exclusively on the specifics of how to be a Somatic Awakening® Practitioner and how to share this profound work with others in a healing practice. For more information, go here.

This program is for those who are ready to:

  • Courageously step into deeply shifting the negative voices, beliefs, and programs that keep you hidden, frozen, and suppressed. You are ready to heal and shift all levels of victim consciousness, and any old worn-out way of being that suppresses who you are.
  • Fully activate your higher self in your life which powerfully heals that which suppresses your true power, your authentic voice, and your sovereignty. You are ready to go much deeper into who you truly are and step into powerful freedom.
  • Go deeper with what you have already experienced in the realms of Somatic Awakening® and the Divine Feminine Healing Principles to fully heal and embody the essence of your being.
  • Activate your awakening, step into your own Source Connection, and do what you came here to do. You have a FULL YES with stepping into your true and authentic life.
  • You feel and sense that Somatic Awakening®, and all it offers, will help you immensely in manifesting all of the above.

By the end of the Level I program, you will:

  • Understand more fully the workings of your psyche, subconscious patterns, somatic body (and its internal contractions), and energy body. You will also know how to make contact with and bring potent healing to these parts inside of you.
  • Experience and embody the multiple aspects of your higher self (your adult consciousness, higher self witness consciousness, the conduit of divinity, and more.) Take a quantum leap in your healing and evolution through this personal awareness and embodiment. Because here, you don’t just “know” this practice cognitively; you embody it.
  • Understand and embody the spiritual principles that Somatic Awakening® is based upon, such as organic presence and the three awareness of the present moment, which allows this practice and modality to powerfully shift in gear and blossom in your life. You will be guided to move beyond a static mental understanding of these principles and utilize and engage them in your practice and daily life.
  • Be able to engage this modality and practice in some of the most difficult aspects of your life and inner psyche. Here, you come into contact with some of the deepest healing and awakening possible with Somatic Awakening®. And, it is here that even in the most difficult of circumstances, you come to powerfully know and trust that you can find your way through to healing, ease, grace, and peace.
  • More fully embody your holy higher self and engage the most potent levels of support, stabilization, and manifestation to help you evolve in your healing, awakening, and your life in general.
  • Fully step into this Embodiment practice so that you are guided in your daily life to live in deep alignment with your higher self and the embody this aspect of yourself in your being. This opens you to the powerful feedback, support, and guidance of your higher self and the divine moving into every aspect of your life. Ultimately awakening your own source connection of the divine in the center of your soul within.
  • Create a community of connection with others of like minds and hearts. Step into a community of others who are deep divers just like you. Those who share a powerful desire for healing and awakening. Here you are united to the deeper Somatic Awakening® community with others who share with you a mutual language, experience, and connection.
  • Those of you who go on to complete the Level II Practitioner Program will be able to bring this potent work into a healing practice with others. As someone who has practiced this for years, I can honestly say that there is nothing like sitting in the potent presence and healing container of the powerful divine healing that Somatic Awakening® opens us and others too. Very often, it borders on the miraculous and is an incredible boon to offer to others and to ourselves.

Here are what past alumni have to say about the Somatic Awakening® Practitioner Program:

“This is a missing piece to the depths of wholeness.”

“This modality is true healing. Melissa is an outstanding teacher. This modality provides true and deep healing for all who are available for it and open to it. This is a missing piece to the depths of wholeness.”

~Cathy Wasielewski, Yoga Teacher and Energy Medicine Practitioner

“It’s the ultimate awakening…It teaches you that there is no outside magic wand…you are the magic wand.”

“Somatic Awakening has returned my authentic power to me. it’s helped me acknowledge that I am a sovereign being and a fractal of God. I have moved into my higher consciousness and I see the big picture. It’s the ultimate awakening. It’s not easy, but it’s so authentic and real. It teaches you that there is no outside magic wand…you are the magic wand.”

~Ruth Antonini, Psychotherapist and Master Teacher

“It’s a whole new way of relating to life.”

“… taking this class has helped me to hold a stronger space for myself on the healing journey… It’s brought a huge healing dimension to my life. The benefits of the practice continue long, long after the class is over. It’s a whole new way of relating to life and a skillful approach to spiritual growth. The tools I learned in this class have transformed the way I relate to myself and have enhanced my capacity to deal with painful situations. I feel stronger and more at peace with myself. If you feel called to the program, dive right in! You’ll find a lot of healing, grace, and resiliency.”

~Rachel R.C., Non-Practitioner Graduate

Questions you may want to have answered before fully stepping in…

I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the things I’m going to learn and step into inside this program. Are you sure I can do this?
This program has a lot to offer that will positively change your life for the better in terms of healing, awakening, and stepping into more freedom in your life. However, Somatic Awakening® is not just a healing modality; it is also a spiritual practice. And spiritual practices are a path, not just a destination. So, it can and will go much deeper for those who resonate with this work. This program has the ability to embody the teachings more deeply in your being and also help you embody your higher self in your daily life over time.

This program is offered in a live format so that you can more fully align these teachings into your life. This format also gets your questions immediately answered and promotes powerful conversation together. Both help you go deeper into your understanding and embodying of this work.

The classes have been scheduled every other week, so you have time between the classes to integrate the information. Also, if you miss anything, all classes and retreats will be recorded so you can make them up in the time that works best for you.

You will also have a 5-year membership to the recordings of this course, so if needed, you can take your time viewing and listening to the classes, meditations, and transmission, as well as you can go over them again and again if desired.

It feels like a big time commitment, and I’m already busy. Is this workable for someone who is busy?
The class have been scheduled in a way so that there is spaciousness between the classes so you can more fully integrate the material. Also, if you miss anything, all classes and retreats will be recorded so you can make them up in the time that works best for you.

You will also have a 5-year membership to the recordings of this course, so if needed, you can take your time viewing and listening to the classes, meditations, and transmission, as well as you can go over them again and again if desired.

You will also have a 5-year membership to the recordings of this course, so if needed, you can take your time viewing and listening to the classes, meditations, and transmission, as well as you can go over them again and again if desired.

I’m tight on money, and I’m not sure I can make a financial commitment like this right now. Can I afford this? Are there scholarships available?
If you are interested in the program and need more financial flexibility that what is listed above, other options are available:

  • including partial scholarships for those in financial need, especially if you are from a BIPOC community.
  • also there is another tier for those who couldn’t attend otherwise financially that does not include one-on-one Somatic Awakening® sessions that is offered in 6-month, 8-month, and 12-month payment plan.

For more information on both schedule a Discovery Call with me to find out more about this.

Do I receive a certificate as a Somatic Awakening® Practitioner after completing Level I?
After completion of Level I, you will receive a certificate of completion for Level I Somatic Awakening Practitioner Program. However, you will NOT be a certified practitioner of Somatic Awakening®. In order to receive this certification, you will need to complete Level II. Information on Level II is at the bottom of this web page.
I’m unclear about the prerequisite process. Can you clarify what I need to do?
The prerequisite course for this program is the introductory course on Somatic Awakening® Embody Healing and Freedom and currently, this program is half-off to help make onboarding into the Somatic Awakening® Practitioner Program super easy. Also, previous graduates of the course The Quantum You qualify.

Prerequisites are important because it is important for you to understand the basics of Somatic Awakening® before diving into this deeper program. Also, for those starting on their spiritual path, this modality and practice may be more advanced than what they are ready for. Also, some once they more fully understand it may, for whatever reason, not resonate with it. Because of all of these reasons, thank you for understanding the need for a prerequisite course.

Also, it is HIGHLY recommended to watch the ENTIRE Embody Healing and Freedom course. However, for those who purchase this course close to the program begin date, you must have completed at least half of the Embody Healing and Freedom course (two modules) to be admitted into this program.

Can you explain the application process?
To enroll in the Somatic Awakening® Practitioner Program, you need to fill out the application here Once received, I will reach out to you to set up an interview. During this interview, we will discuss your background, answer any questions you have, and discuss your alignment with this program. Once accepted into the program, we then take the next steps to get you on board.

Those who aren’t ready yet to fill out the application form and want to find out more if this program is a fit for you can schedule a Discover Call where we can talk one-on-one.

I don’t really know you as a teacher. What are your credentials and background?
This is an important question because you want to make sure that I know what I’m talking about. I get it, and here is the short of it: I’ve been in practice as a naturopathic doctor and mind-body-spirit specialist for over twenty years. I have been a teacher of spirituality, consciousness, energy medicine, and holistic health for even longer. I have also had numerous personal awakening and healing experiences. Most significantly, I’ve had a ten-year dark night of the soul that popped me into multiple awakening experiences and a direct relationship with Sophia Divine Mother, Mary Magdalene, and multiple other ascended masters…which led me to Somatic Awakening® blossoming in my life and my healing practice. I’ve also discovered many secrets along the way to life-changing healing and connection with our true nature. And many of these secrets are found in this program.

Does this really work? Is it really going to make a difference in my life?
If you are a person that is connected to an awareness of your body, you deeply feel emotions, have a general ability to meditate, sense energy, and you are spiritually inclined, then chances are you will deeply resonate with this modality and healing practice and that it will make a big impact on your life. Also, remember the more you experience, the higher healing energy possible within this work, the more this practice continues to open you to healing, awakening, and embodiment. But, don’t take my word for it. If you are really unsure listen to some of the free meditations, transmissions, watch interviews, listen to the podcast, attend some of the Somatic Awakening® Sangha Gatherings, read the testimonials found throughout this website, read my free e-book, or read the many blogs. After doing so see if you feel a resonance with what is shared then I hope that this leads you to your answer.

In all honesty, I have seen countless people heal from this modality. This is why I am teaching it now…because it is time for humanity to remember who we are, and to do so, we need to heal the aspects of us that limit us and awaken to our true divine nature. I believe in Somatic Awakening® so deeply because it has also powerfully healed me, shifted my life, and opened me to numerous awakening experiences. I’ve seen the same happen to so many people.

If you show up, do the work, and are sincere about embodying this information, your life will change, heal, and shift for the better. And, if it doesn’t work for you, there is always a money-back guarantee for more information on that, click here. (hyperlink to the money back guarantee section)

She discovered this path by walking through her own profound healing and awakening over decades. She sees this light of the divine within us all.

Sophia Healing Academy is a mystery school that teaches healing and awakening based on the principles of the Divine Feminine, as well as the mind-body-spirit healing modality and spiritual practice that arose from these principles, Somatic Awakening®. The teachings, meditations, and transmissions offered at Sophia Healing Academy share valuable information for healing while also profoundly opening the doors to awakening, embodiment, sovereignty, and alignment with our authentic divine power. The school is a response and living structure dedicated to the Divine Feminine Energy that has awakened in our world, as well as a practice based on these principles.
