  • Are you in a time of transition in your career, life, or inner world?
  • Would you like to live and lead with a sense of deep inner knowing and support?
  • Do you want to be seen and held in community as you discover and manifest the life that is right for you?

You are not alone!

I invite you to join Somatic Wellbeing for the Visioning Being, and learn sustainable ways of being with all that you are, do, and dream of.  

I created this program with the intent to strong and supportive community among seekers and leaders who want to live from their body’s wisdom.  There is only so much learning we can do “on our own,” and to truly integrate this learning and revolutionize our lives we need a skilled and capable team by our side.  This year long program creates a ground for this community to form as you dive into your own deep learning process.  Within a safe and nurturing space, you’ll learn powerful approaches to gently align with your body’s wisdom so that you can live, lead and create from a place of deep wellbeing and inner connection. Over the course of 9 monthly workshops we’ll use somatic (body-centered) methods of awareness to attend essential aspects of creating the life you need and want.  Topics include:

  • visioning
  • building supportive community
  • expanding your relationship to money and time
  • learning how feelings and sensations can guide you
  • supporting a healthy flow of rest and activation

By deepening your relationship with your body and sensory experience, you will discover new ways of living and working that honor the fullness of who you are and what you’re meant to do in this world.

What Students are Saying

It was with grace that I found Lee at a time when I was yearning to reconnect with a sense of purpose in my life and my work. This program provided me with a safe and intentional space to connect deeply with myself and others. The attentiveness to breath and body, that Lee led us through,  created an opportunity for a deep wellspring of body-based knowledge to rise up. My experience grew beyond the workshops and translated effortlessly into my life and my practice.  She is a gifted listener and facilitator. She is truly present and passionate about her work.

–Kim, Dance/Movement Therapist

I am grateful to feel a lot more recovered and “in” myself.

–David Siller, Sustainable Community Builder and Educator

For the very first time, I go inside myself and await with curiosity to see what is happening and it is like a universe exists within me that has sound and color and movement…traffic jams at times.  But all in all it is always me and every part of me.  Truly it is time for a celebration.  One of the intentions I wrote down is that I want to be a better healer.  First and foremost I have become a better healer to myself.  The rest I can wait patiently to see how it will happen.

I am also so proud that I have learned to look and listen to others from a place within myself.  In my work as well as my personal relationships, I now see how important it is to honor and take care of myself and trust that if I have the intention to offer loving interaction with people that is the best that I can do as well as deep and open listening.

I will never be the same after taking this workshop.

–Ana Goldenberg, Sound and Color Healer, Psychotherapist

Feeling welcomed, supported, and continuously affirmed by the group helped me realize that what I feel, what I dream, what I sense, and what I say IS in fact very important and crucial.  I’ll always take with me Lee’s words: “Everything that is happening in you is happening in the world.” So knowing myself more deeply and making my wellbeing a priority is not just self-fulfilling but a gift and service to the world.

–Julie Verdone,  Artist

Over the course of this program I have successfully become a non-profit, which was a goal of mine, and I feel empowered and supported (from within my body, surprisingly) to make more changes that I set out to make.

–Dawn Smelser,  Director of MotherHeart Sangha

Lee’s program provided tools and language to think about the realm of intuition.  I came to respect that it can be known, not just left in ephemera.   Beyond this, during the program, my body came to speak for itself.  Lee’s guidance and the environment she created helped me find a rapport with that which only seems too subtle.”
