Hi, my name is

Dr. Melissa Sophia Joy;

I am the Founder of Sophia Healing Academy and co-creator of the spiritual healing modality and mystical path Somatic Awakening®. I have helped thousands of people in my twenty-year practice as a Naturopathic Doctor, Specialist in Mind-Body-Spirit Medicine, Spiritual Teacher, Oracle, and Intuitive.

However, it hasn’t always been easy. There was a time in my life when I lost almost everything: my career, marriage, and finances completely fell apart. But, then, it got worse when traumatic memories (from this life and others) catapulted into my awareness. I fell apart, lost in a sea of pain, anxiety, and fear.

Unfortunately, it didn’t matter how many degrees I had nor how many healers or therapists I saw, I was still wracked with anxiety and overwhelm.

I then began to receive support from the most unconventional yet trustworthy of places…I had a vision of Yeshua and Mary Magdalene, who told me it was time to remember what I came to do and teach others what I remembered. I went into a potent initiation process and had many more visions, especially from Mary Magdalene, who taught me the basis of a profound spiritual healing and mystical path. When I engaged this path, it transformed my pain into peace, and I had numerous awakening experiences. I began using what I had learned with clients, and their lives powerfully shifted too.

Hi, my name is

Dr. Melissa Sophia Joy;

I am the Founder of Sophia Healing Academy and the co-creator of the spiritual healing modality and mystical path Somatic Awakening®. I have helped thousands of patients and students in my twenty-year practice as a Naturopathic Doctor, Specialist in Mind-Body-Spirit Medicine, and Spiritual Teacher. I am also an Ordained Oracle, Priestess in the Magdalene-Sophia tradition, Mystic, Energy Medicine Practitioner, and Intuitive.

However, my life hasn’t always been like this. In 2008, I lost almost everything: my career, my marriage, and the bottom completely dropped out from underneath my finances. By the end of that year, I didn’t even have enough money to buy Christmas gifts for my daughter. Fortunately, my family was there to help. Unfortunately, the situation deteriorated significantly as I was also confronted with an overwhelming influx of traumatic memories surfacing within me. I was internally falling apart and had no idea what to do. I knew the small “me” didn’t know how to be with all this. So, with everything I had, I turned it over to the Divine.

As I did, I began having visions of Mary Magdalene, Yeshua, Divine Mother Sophia, and others within the Christ Family, even though I didn’t consider myself a card-carrying Christian. They started teaching me, especially Mary Magdalene, the basis of a profound healing spiritual and mystical process, which caused me to have the most profound healing and awakening experiences of my life. Through this process, the intense overwhelm and anxiety I’d carried around for years vanished, and I began to feel deeply peaceful, truly free, sovereign, and filled with bliss from the depth of connection I was beginning to feel with the divine.

Fast forward almost fifteen years and Somatic Awakening® has now brought healing and awakening to countless others. This path has the ability to alchemically transform the most intense difficulties within and open you to peace, joy, and freedom. It also powerfully supports you to awaken your true essence, embody your authentic divine power, and RISE!

The Somatic Awakening® Practitioner Program I

The Level I Somatic Awakening® Practitioner Program is a 7-month program which runs from Feb. 2024 – Sept. 2024 and offers a depth training that helps YOU heal, awaken, and remember the luminous divine being that you truly are.

This program guides you step-by-step to alchemically transform the density within your being; whether that be negative voices, past trauma, or negative conditioning. It does so through activating your Higher Self and the Divine in a way that has the ability to transmute the core of trauma and difficulty; in an incredibly powerful and completely trustworthy way that also helps you stay within your capacity.

As you go deeper in this depth training you gain the ability to internalize this transformative work. In doing so, it is common to step into multiple awakening experiences, embody your higher self, activate your soul essence, and align with the potent power of miraculous manifestation in your life.

The Level I program also serves as a stepping stone for those who want to pursue becoming a Somatic Awakening® Practitioner. After successfully finishing Level I, those who want to become a certified Somatic Awakening® Practitioner can advance to Level II, which is a comprehensive 7-month program that teaches how to share this transformative work with others through a healing practice.

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

“I have personally found the deepest healing from Somatic Awakening®”

“The practitioner program is unlike any other. It speaks to the essence of being a spiritual healer. I have personally found the deepest healing from Somatic Awakening® and I honestly feel grateful to be able to ground the work deep enough into my being that I can use it to support others.”

~Hannah Wasielewski, Biodynamic Craniosacral Practitioner 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

“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

“Somatic Awakening® has had a profound impact on my life over the past few years.”

“The practitioner program has allowed me to have a much richer understanding of this practice, and I am learning how to support others in their healing and evolution. There is nothing more fulfilling than bearing witness to others in their evolution.

“… 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.

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. Over time, this program will enable you to internalize the teachings on a deeper level and assist you in embodying your higher self in your day-to-day life.

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 Sunday 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 a way 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 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.

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?

The program pricing is what it is due to the many hours of live teaching, which offers real-time interaction and personalized feedback, as opposed to pre-recorded teaching. Also, the groups in SAPP I are on the smaller side. Therefore, you get a lot of individual attention and support. However, if the price point is still a stretch for you, I recommend that you ask yourself the following question: Can I afford not to take this class? Is your deeper self, heart, and spirit guiding you toward it? Does it feel like you need this class to move forward with your life? If so, I have found that when there is the will, there is a way.

Also, keep in mind that for those who want to become a Somatic Awakening® Practitioner, this course, along with SAPP II, can be a tax write-off as a business expense. 

If this price is still too high for you, you have an authentic financial need and a deep desire to take this class; please see the options below. 

Financial Options Include:

  • If the financial payment options listed in the financial section do not work for you, talk to Dr. Melissa. We can shift and make the payment tiers longer, i.e. pay within an 8-month or 12-month payment plan. 
  • There are also partial scholarships for those who have a disability, are from a BIPOC community, and/or have serious financial need.

For more information on all of the above schedule a Discovery Call with me to find out more.

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 the Level I Somatic Awakening Practitioner Program. However, you will NOT be a certified practitioner of Somatic Awakening®. In order to receive certification to be a practitioner 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 this course is offered as a bonus to SAPP I after you apply, have an interview, and give a deposit. This is 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 essential for you to understand the basics of Somatic Awakening® before diving into this deeper program. It will help prospective students more fully understand the depths of what Somatic Awakening® is. For those starting on their spiritual path, this modality and practice may be more advanced than what they are ready for. We also honor that some students, for whatever reason, may 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’s beginning date, you must have completed the first two modules of the Embody Healing and Freedom course before the first weekend of SAPP I.

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 am a good teacher and 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 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 who is connected to an awareness of your body, you deeply feel emotions, have a general ability to meditate and sense energy, and are spiritually inclined, then chances are you will deeply resonate with this modality and healing practice and it will make a big impact on your life. Also, the more you experience Somatic Awakening® at work in your life, the higher the amount of healing energy that moves into your being. And the more this practice will open you to healing, awakening, and embodiment. But don’t take my word for it. If you are unsure, listen to some of the free meditations and transmissions, watch interviews, listen to the podcast, attend some of the Somatic Awakening® Sangha Gatherings, read the testimonials found throughout my websites, read my free e-book, or read the many blogs. After doing so, see if you feel a resonance with what is shared and are excited about the possibilities you will be led to your answer.

In all honesty, I have seen countless people heal and awaken 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 that which limits us so we can awaken to our true divine nature. My own conviction in the transformative potential of Somatic Awakening® is unwavering because it has had such a profound healing effect on me, ushered significant shifts in my life, and bestowed upon me multiple awakening experiences. Then, I observed the same experiences manifest in countless other patients and students.

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.

Speaking honestly heart to heart…

This deep dive 6-month program has the ability to totally transform the lives of those who say yes to the call.

To be fully transparent, I teach this path because I have been called by spirit to do so and I am reminded, almost daily, through others and my own experiences, how incredibly powerful it is. Its potency and effectiveness in healing and awakening others continually blows me away.

This program of transformation places your feet firmly on the higher path of evolution by aligning you to the light and divinity of your higher self, your luminous true essence, and the Divine.

We are all being called now to remember that we are so much more than the painful voices and somatic contractions that have ruled our lives.

We are being called to align with the Higher Power of Who We Really Are and the Divine Inheritance that is Our Natural Birthright to Dissolve All Painful Density Within Our Being and Reconfigure Our Lives to More Ease, Grace, and Peace.

When this happens, we awaken and embody the Divinity that lies in the essence of our being. And this changes everything.

Here we live in alignment with our soul’s passion, authentic power, and true freedom!

If your body is vibrating yes as you read these words, then I invite you to join this powerful program.

 

With All My Love and Oceans of Blessings,
Melissa Sophia

P.S. Whatever you chose I want you to know that you are love in the essence of your being, you are divine, and you are absolutely completely worthy of remembering and living this!
