Somatic Pathways to Soul
January 2023 - June 2023
with Amanda Fiorino & Sara McFarland
This 6 month virtual program will weave together:
ancestral remembrance, honoring, and healing
psycho-spiritual resourcing rooted in sovereignty & community
re-framing healing & wholing work
relocating the intelligence of our survival strategies to an Earthen and feral knowing
soul-rooted participation with the world
sensuality and the erotic animal body
mythic emergence that dwells within the bodies of our belonging and experience.
This 6 month program breaks down into 6, 3 hour Depth processes (one Sunday a month) and 2, 3-day Intensives. You will also receive a workbook & other resources for you to call upon at your own pace & rhythm.
We will call upon varying practices, such as:
Deep imagery work & journeying
Council, ceremony, & ritual
Shadow work & more!
If you can feel in the marrow of your bones, the beat of your heart, the flow of your blood, the cavern of your womb, the pliable soles of your feet, or the belly of your knowing a tempestuous, shaking, wailing, undulating, growling, or shivering YES I WANT TO FERALIZE, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We so hope you follow the scent and tracks of your longing - of Mystery pulling at your body to grow closer to the Earth.
"I want to live in the twilight country of my wildish self, a deer leaping into moons of light as if summoned, seeking some reason to fall down closer to the earth." - Reni Fulton

Coming home to your body and re-membering yourself as the body of Earth
6 Months : 12 People : 2 Guides
DATES & TIMES: Info will be posted in June of 2022
RESOURCES & WORKBOOK
You will also receive a workbook for developing psycho-spiritual and somatic resources through daily practices and invitations to go into wild nature. We will also be suggesting & providing resources for de-colonial/anti-racist/anti-oppression work.
All of this work can be engaged at your own pace and rhythm and will likely (and hopefully) extend beyond this six month container!
You will have our email support throughout, as well as a buddy with whom you will have one-to-one check in's for ongoing accountability and community building.
We will be decolonizing our bodies and relational ways of being with the world, healing civilization trauma, becoming feral bodied, and cultivating emotional resiliency, tenacity, and intelligence. You will be invited to re-mythologize your story, honor your ancestors - yours and those of the land where you live, and re-member that your relationship with Earth is a sacred gift. Diving deeply into the Soul depths of your Mythos in your body, you may hear what is being asked of you sovereignly and communally at this time.
We're limiting participants to 12 in order to dive deeply in an intimate and powerfully held container that is both
trauma-informed and based on the alchemical process of mythic-somatic transmutation - a re-shaping and -weaving of yourself into the Golden Web of Life. We are here to support the cultivation of psycho-spiritually resilient agency amidst uncertainty and collapse, as well as to encourage accountability for the sacred life we have been entrusted with.

"This is my heart. It is a good heart.
Bones and a membrane of mist and fire
are the woven cover.
When we make love in the flower world
my heart is close enough to sing
to yours in a language that has no use
for clumsy human words."
- Joy Harjo
The world has been rolling out waves of great change. More is being asked of us in these uncertain and tempestuous times. Great transitions are afoot, and they will not wait for our readiness.
We are living in uncertain times, where urgency compels our bodies to dance with the unknown. The quality and nature of our relationships with self and the world are being tested. Cascading collapse is shaking the hollowed out foundations of belonging fed to us by industrial culture. Fear, mistrust, frozen grief, and shock grip at the heart while the Earth sings to us of inter-dependence and -connectivity through the crumbling of ecosystems, and the disappearance of earthen kin. The collapse of the world as we know it has begun. Great changes are afoot, and such changes will not wait for our readiness.
But, it is not the end of Earth, life, or beauty. Still the spring is rising, and the more-than-human world is calling out for our participation as feral human creatures. You get to choose how you are going to participate! The question is are you willing to take Mystery’s upturned hand into your own, to embrace the wilderness of not knowing, to live your way into questions and set down your seeking of answers? Are you willing to dream impossibly amidst the collapse?
Particularly in these times, we need to come together as a community and invoke a larger field of consciousness - to be transformed, inspired, de-formed, and informed by one another. To be held within the collective that is infused by the Mother’s embrace, and nourished by the Heartfires of Earth. To invoke the Feral Feminine and see with fierce compassion and tender clarity what needs to die and be offered as compost from our individual and collective ways of being in and with the world.
Are you ready to do the hard work that is necessary for these times? Because every one of us is being asked to show up, and help usher in a new paradigm.
It is so, and because it it so you have a choice.
If you know you are called to this work at this time, please email us at email@example.com
How do you understand, through your body, what the world is asking of you?
How will you respond?
