Alchemy of Embodiment

Maui Live Small Group
Transformational Intimacy Facilitation

with Ajaya Sommers

Get Down. Get Real. Rise Up.
Somatic Heart-based Practices for Tending Radical Authenticity,
Aliveness and Primal Intimacy

As human beings it is our birthright to experience genuine intimacy and connection with 'others', ourselves and the Source of Life itself.
It is our birthright to simply inhabit our deepest place of belonging.
To feel seen and celebrated for who we truly are.
To rest in the peace and stillness of our own
intimate embrace.
To make wise choices grounded in the integral awareness
that who I am, as I am, is already whole & complete.

And yet— we can also unconsciously fear and avoid this intimacy and connection with ourselves, others and Life itself, the most. Due to early developmental trauma, ancestral trauma and our cultural context at large, many of us hold complex layers of armor that block us from the intimacy that deep down we crave. Unconscious defenses against the fulfillment of our core human needs, as well as our hearts innocent desires often seem to win.

In these LIVE small group facilitation sessions we create our own culture, by individuating from our conditioned habits of mind, body and emotion. Taking refuge instead, within the gold of our true hearts and bodily wisdom. The more that we discover how to relax into this natural space in our core, at home in the truth of who we are; the more we can allow the paradox of all that it is to be human.

Our unresolved traumas, unbearable losses, haunting insecurities, core deficiencies, insidious fears, raging fires, secret escapes, inner wars and dark pleasures can all be re-framed as the alchemical cauldron that is necessary to open the heart, embody the soul and embrace our humanity.

Kindness arises as 'not-knowing' as we discover more and more safety in letting go of our previous forms of disassociation and head dominated control.
All the while recognizing this undertaking is a choice. We can give ourselves permission to explore the contours of our most direct and intimate experience within the mystery of being divinely human. Rather than trying to figure out, fix, judge or otherwise control our experience. This takes practice to unlearn, to un-fixate and undo these old habits that were once so seemingly safe and yet enmeshed with an addictive quality of suffering simultaneously.

We do not and cannot grow in isolation. For genuine transformation to take place, we need the warmth of aspiring companions also devoted to the path of opening the heart, landing fully in the body and en-fleshing our lives with our authentic presence. In the safety and honesty of our shared field together we can allow the ripe and raw materials of our human experience (the base metals, aka the habitual emotional/mental reactivity & patterns of suffering) to be metabolized and integrated. As we open to an embodied intimate relatedness with ourselves, one another, nature and  Life Itself.
“We must reclaim and embody our original wholeness, our indigenous human nature granted to us by nature itself. And the key to reclaiming our original wholeness is not merely to suppress psychological symptoms, recover from addictions and trauma, manage stress, or refurbish dysfunctional relationships, but rather to fully flesh out our multifaceted, wild psyches, committing ourselves to the largest story we’re capable of living, serving something bigger than ourselves.”

~ Bill Plotkin, founder, Animas Valley Institute

Is Alchemy of Embodiment small group
facilitation for you?
 This body of work is for those who desire to cultivate a stable and yet fluid core of being as a continuum of self and service to the world.

It is for those who already live inside of the core paradox of what it is to be both human & transcendent; to dance with ones shadow and light, masculine and feminine - longings and fulfillment. To be of both earth and stars...

You are no longer interested in hiding, avoiding & distracting from your most intimate experience of reality- instead you are ready to welcome kindred company to amplify your passion, power
and purpose in being here.

Each month a small group of 10-16 amazing and courageous beloveds, will gather in person from 10am-6pm to co-create a rich field of intimacy, openness, safety & humor in devotion to living the fullest expression of who we are. Exploring with curiosity and kindness the tender and alive counters of our direct human experience via our very real life challenges and blessings. As we allow the sacred mirror of one another to catalyze a deepening into ourselves.

Session Format:

The Horizontal: We will spend half of the day on the floor diving into our somatic inner worlds via a synthesis of Continuum somatic based practices, utilizing breath, sound, touch and intimate inquiry. Listening and attuning to our natural rhythms through pleasure, curiosity and orienting to contact with the somatic ground of our being, is our art & practice.

The Vertical: The other half of the day we explore seated transformational intimacy practices with an emphasis on staying seated in our sovereign center. Honesty and accountability are our central axis as we relax into the shared presence of the group field. Allowing ourselves to be catalyzed by one-another's human experience, a
n alchemical metamorphosis occurs, as we practice staying, loving, not knowing - with all that arises. We will re-emerge renewed, resourced and ready to re-engage our senses such that they become thresholds where the divine, the natural world, our culture and the mystery of being human coalesce as the dynamic dance of Life. Whoo Huu!

Free Discovery  Session
Hello! My name is Ajaya Sommers

Founder of a unique somatic discovery process called, Core Embodiment® — an integrated system of embodiment practices, principles and perceptual orientations to awaken and align with the power of your human potential.  I am also a certified Biodynamic Craniosacral Integration Teacher, a NARM practitioner (Neuro-affective-relational model) as well as an Authorized Continuum Teacher.

For the past 27 years I have been instrumental in facilitating conscious evolution in thousands of people’s lives as a  teacher, author, public speaker and creative catalyst in the field of psycho-spiritual somatic integration.
I design and facilitate training programs for professionals, lead retreats, and offer both live and on-line group platforms for organizations that are ecologically regenerative, socially just and spiritually connected. All of my programs are grounded in science, expanded through devotional practice and made real through direct experience.

I invite you to join me for this new small group offering so that we can dive in together, fostering your own unique expression and fulfillment with some supportive, kindred company by your side! When we can make medicine of our early developmental trauma’s, the inevitable shock traumas along the way, as well as the paradoxes of apparent and real losses of a deeply lived life — by way of integration, not spiritual bypass — we reclaim our wholeness.
“I recently attended a 5 day retreat in Hawaii with Ajaya.  Honestly, I did not really know what to expect as I had never done the practice that she teaches. I was absolutely blown away by Ajaya’s ability to hold the intimate and entirely safe space for healing and organic unwinding.  I am in awe and gratitude for the healing that happened for me during the retreat, as I trusted the process and my body’s own innate intelligence. As a psychotherapist, I have attended many workshops and retreats, and this was an experience like no other in its ability to reach the depths. The presence that Ajaya IS was there to support and facilitate our work, and revealed a beautiful presence in myself, an irresistible beauty that cannot be denied once seen.”
Margie Stornetta, MFT, Santa Rosa,CA

“Ajaya is one of those rare healers who can see directly into your core, understand your needs (deeper than you know yourself), and offer sacred healing to your most hidden, needy places in the deep psyche. She is filled with kindness and light, so healing comes as naturally as if you were bathed in love by the Goddess herself. Don’t miss the opportunity to be touched and guided by this divine healer — no matter what ails you.”

-Lion Goodman, PCC, creator of the Clear Beliefs Coach Training,

After one session with Ajaya, I knew that I had found someone who could guide me into my deepest longing to come home to myself. With incredible tenderness and wisdom, Ajaya creates a space to rediscover and remember the simple and potent beauty of living from the heart, and experiencing the embodied fullness of being. I come away from every session with such immense gratitude for her depth of knowledge and ability to foster such intimacy and truth. As a therapist, I treasure how presence has the capacity to transform, and being in Ajaya’s presence is transformative. She is not only changing my life, but she is also empowering me to a greater vessel of healing for others. I feel so honored to have such an incredible healer, teacher, and companion in my life.
