  • The role of neurobiology in development

  • Embryology

The Whole Person Somatic Movement Program trains psychologists and therapists, yoga & movement professionals, and body workers to incorporate developmental movement principles into their work.

Personal embodiment—both body awareness and the capacity for kindness, appreciation, and wonder at one’s own body wisdom—is a primary tool to support transformation on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levelsThe program is based on the knowledge that human development occurs first through the language of movement and touch and relationship, and provides educators, therapists, and creators with a psychophysical model both for supporting motor development and repatterning behavior. It includes instruction in movement facilitation, touch skills, creative expression, and psychodynamic facilitation.

WOMB SURROUND PROCESS WORKSHOP with Sarah Theismann

Location: Boulder, CO

Womb Surround Workshops

Is there a pattern in your life that you want to change?

Have you been working on this pattern for a long time without making lasting changes, despite getting support from qualified practitioners?

Do you feel there is some support you need with embodying your consciousness more fully?

These are the questions I ask my clients to determine whether they are working with an early, preverbal imprint, originating from anywhere between conception and the first few years of life. Repatterning these imprints requires specific ways of working with the body and the relational / attachment systems, so a new, embodied way of being in relationship to your self, others and all of creation can be found. The most effective way I have found to heal early imprints are Womb Surround Workshops.

Developed by Dr. Ray Castellino, Womb Surrounds are held in a small group format of 4-6 participants. In this setting you will be able to experience the social nervous system of the group field in a safe, collaborative way - something many of us never got to feel in our families of origin.

You will have the opportunity to reconnect with deeper layers of your consciousness and get support for embodying them more fully in your present day self. Our early imprints, whether they are preverbal, ancestral, or collective are what can get in the way of bringing our transcendent self into this human experience. The integration of these two - embodied human self and consciousness - is what to me this work is ultimately about. I would be honored to support you in this.

Born to a German father and Hungarian mother, Sarah grew up in the Alps in Germany and Austria. She studied art, movement and dance in Munich. After moving to California in 2001, she began to pursue studies of healing through the body: she became a Pilates and Yogilates instructor, pursued a B.F.A. in Painting and Performance Art and attended the Tamalpa Institute (movement based expressive arts therapy) as well as holistic massage school. During this period she also obtained her Certificate as a Sexological Bodyworker from the Institute for Advanced Studies of Human Sexuality in San Francisco and studied varied approaches to intimacy coaching.

She found the focus of her work in her studies of Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing™ and Ray Castellino's Prenatal and Birth Therapy. Deepening her commitment to healing through the body, she obtained an M.A. in Clinical Psychology with a Specialization in Somatic and Pre/Perinatal Psychology.

Sarah has been studying in-depth with Ray Castellino since 2010 and sees his teachings as the true foundation of her work. She feels honored to be offering his findings and principles to her clients. To deepen her understanding of the roots of Ray's work in Dr. Randolph Stone's teachings, Sarah is currently studying Polarity Therapy with Dr. Jim Feil. Sarah lectures and teaches on the intersection of PPN Psychology and adult intimate relationships. Read more…

Two Day Workshop with Renee Hella

grounding-workshop-renee-hella.jpg

November 10 - 11th, 2018

Two day experiential workshop in Lillooet, British Columbia followed by (4) 60 min Skype sessions once a week of grounding meditations and experiential exercises over the next month.


CAD $400 (non-refundable deposit $40)


Finding our roots and working through our layers to our Deeper Selves is a great way to come into better embodiment and presence.
Being more present in all of ourselves makes us more resilient and grounded in our relationships to others, whether they are our children, clients, lovers or friends.

This workshop will cover various ways to more completely come into our bodies through working with feeling our pelvic bowl, gut and the various ways that we can feel rooted. We will work with our ancestral history in order to feel more supported by what has come before us.

After our two day workshop we will come together once a week as a group for 60 min skype grounding meditations and group feedback to better integrate and deepen our presence.

Sept 28 - Oct 1st, 2018: 9am to evening each day

Location: Lillooet, British Columbia.

Limit 5 Participants

CAD $700* (non-refundable deposit $70)
*Price includes one follow-up session which can be either a craniosacral therapy session or a Pre and Perinatal session over Skype


Each participant has about a 2.5 hour session. Sessions can go longer depending on the material surfacing. The whole group stays in support of whoever is doing their work.

Because this group work supports deep shifts in the physical body as well as in our emotional, intellectual, ancestral and energetic fields it has the potential to heal the foundational roots of many difficult and long-held/hidden patterns.

Each session is followed by a sharing of all the group members own experience during the session and time for integration.

Four Day Workshop with Renee Hella

cord-dynamics-renee-hella.jpg

September 7 - 10th, 2018

A four-day somatic exploration, following the model of the Pre and Perinatal Psychology trainings, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and Qi Gong in Lillooet, British Columbia.

In this workshop we will dive into an exploration of cord dynamics. Cord dynamics originate from when we were growing our bodies in the womb via our umbilical cord.

CAD $700* (non-refundable deposit $70)
*Price includes one follow-up session which can be either a craniosacral therapy session or a Pre and Perinatal session over Skype

As we grew our body our nourishment came to us through our umbilical cord. Many of our dynamics around digestion, receiving, and boundaries come from this original place.

The spiraling nature of these dynamics also show up in how we birth ourselves and our projects, and how we deepen into the layers of ourselves. We will do some work with labyrinths to assist the felt sense of this deepening.

We will also explore our bellies with a Qi Gong form that unwinds our guts and deepens our experience of our naval and the felt sense of the phantom umbilical cord that still connects us to our mother earth and our roots through our gut connection and our microbiome.

This workshop is open to individuals who are interested in working with their ‘umbilical affect’. We will be somatically exploring our very early experiences, from an evolutionary perspective as well as from a personal perspective i.e. our time growing in the womb. This can bring up challenging experiences so participants need to have a certain level of grounding and ability to hold their witness-self. Participants need to fill out an application and do a Skype interview to apply.

Four Day Somatic Exploration with Renee Hella

twin-dynamics-renee-hella.jpg

July 20 - 23rd, 2018

A four-day somatic exploration in Lillooet, British Columbia.

Exploring and working with twin dynamics is a powerful way to learn how to work with our potent ability to resonate with each other. This dynamic shows up in so many ways including our shadow-side as well as in our gut-brain-microbiome interactions. We will be exploring how and if our concepts of boundaries are changing with our new understanding of ourselves as symbiotic beings.

CAD $700* (non-refundable deposit $70)
*Price includes one follow-up session which can be either a craniosacral therapy session or a Pre and Perinatal session over Skype

This is a largely experiential workshop and we will take time to integrate and process the material that arises from our experiences.

This is a very sensitive dynamic so care will be taken with accepting participants. Participants need to have a certain level of grounding and ability to be with difficult feelings.They need to be able to maintain a certain level of witness-self.

Participants will need to fill in an application form and do an interview either in person or via Skype to be approved to join the workshop.

Spaces are limited

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Workshop with Renee Hella

microbiome-and-me-renee-hella.jpeg

May 4 - 7, 2018

Advanced Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy seminar in Lillooet, British Columbia.

In this workshop we will explore cutting edge research on the gut-brain-microbiome axis in a way that gives us direct experience of the felt sense of the various interactions and ways that our body somatically communicates within itself as well as with its environment.


Some of the topics that we will work with are:

  • The interactions between gut health, microbes and dreams/altered states
  • Birth and the seeding of our microbiome including attachment and addiction potential
  • Brain plasticity, glial cells and the nutritional resources
  • The neuro-enteric system and how the parasympathetic and sympathetic systems operate on the gut level
  • Importance of daily rituals around diet, fermented foods, relaxation and movement (qi gong)
  • Somatic communication between individuals via their microbiome
  • Understanding how various traumas impact our microbiome, for example concussions, parasites, developmental trauma, nutritional trauma, medical/pharmaceutical trauma
  • How to recognize and work with someone’s dysbiotic trauma ego
