Upcoming Online Training with Jaya:




This training will help us to understand the nature of trauma and how it is embedded in the body’s memory and nervous system reactions, how it affects our behaviours, emotions, overall health, relationships and lives, and begin to transform them. It will help us to identify trauma related symptoms, ways to heal them somatically, as well as through neuroplasticity, while finding ways to reconnect with our resilience and vitality and bring it into the foreground. It will also help practitioners of various modalities to trauma~inform their practice, which is essential for any practitioner, as Trauma Expert Dr. Bessel Van der Kolk says, “One third of all disease has it’s origins in trauma.”

The training draws on the work of Dr. Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing founder & Trauma Expert), Dr. Gabor Mate (MD & Trauma Expert), Dr. Joe Dispenza (Neuroscience & neuroplasticity), Dr. Norman Doidge (Neuroscience & neuroplasticity), and Betsy Polatin (MFA, Somatic, Breath & Movement Specialist). It will also include an in-depth workbook that you can download to be used throughout the course.

Both health practitioners and lay people are invited to join in exploring and transforming their lives via the following topics:


  • What is the Central Nervous System (CNS), the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), including the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) and Somatic Nervous System, the Vagus Nerve, how trauma affects them and how to heal them
  • How to work with memory and track thwarted fight, flight and freeze (FFF) responses through related body sensations to help to discharge them and heal the stress physiology somatically
  • How to identify and integrate intergenerational trauma and ancestral healing to enhance our aliveness, as well as our childrens
  • How to access emotions through the body, (our guts via interoception), to reconnect with our intuition and get comfortable with healthy aggression and related boundary-setting
  • How neuroplasticity helps us to change the hormones of stress, related habit patterns and behaviors, and can reorient us to living vital lives, including practice through guided meditations
  • How somatic exercises can ground and calm the Nervous System, enhance capacity for self-regulation and help create new body memories for the life we want
  • How trauma healing can be a portal to spirituality by waking up through the body, and living with embodied awareness, while avoiding spiritual bypassing
  • Jaya will offer healing session demos to individuals within the group that will illuminate the work, and support the wellness of all

“Jaya, what a powerful energy you hold. I am so grateful for what you did for me, I felt such a release. My back pain that has been with me for decades is gone. Thank you for showing me the link between mind and body. The Somatic training on the retreat taught me so much about mind body awareness. The examples and practical training was perfect. The way you treated and released the trauma I experienced at birth has shifted me to another level. Your ability to hold space and intuit what needs to be addressed is very strong. You are confident, well informed, yet also calm and humble. Thank you so much!”

~ Jan, Engineer, South Africa


“I am so blessed to have experienced the Somatic Healing Retreat led by Jaya in Bacalar, Mexico. Jaya leads in a vulnerable, open yet boundaried way where she actively models for us how to embody our experience fully. This safe and transparent container allowed for a depth of experience and healing which was truly life changing for me. This retreat felt like an answered prayer and I’m so grateful for it all!”

~ Lucinda Rose, Psychotherapist, Peterborough, ON


“Jaya, thank you so much for this beautiful experience. As I look back on the experience I am struck with so much healing and knowledge, I sit on the plane now with my back feeling strong and this existential pain I carried dissipating. Thank you for believing that I can heal. That belief alone really brings me to tears.

The connection I felt last week re-installed a sense of magic in the world that was lost on me – this child like wonder of not knowing what one can expect behind every corner.

I felt deeply moved by the Somatic works. I felt them rattle the insides of my “knowing” and already see them play into real life. I spent so much of my life with a deep knowing that so much of the physical pain I was suffering was tied to trauma and to some “unlucky” coincidence, and this past week gave me faith to envision a life where I can move beyond it. I feel so lucky to have met you – to have received so many amazing downloads. I have so much respect and gratitude for all the energy, authenticity and love you poured into this container. This beautiful space between the contraction and expansion, the sacred door into the beyond.

Yesterday, I got to fly pain free for the first time in years – it was pretty astonishing! I couldn’t believe it. Can you imagine? I guess what we all learned together that the answer is, ‘Yes we can!'”

“Thank you very much for the special Healing Gathering yesterday. I wished to share my experience at the end and did not have the capacity to do so.

Near the end of the meditation, a presence ever so gently touched my leg and whispered, ‘I’m always here for you, your connection to Source’. 

It was an extremely powerful moment and I have carried that with me all day today, and hope to continue to remember that our connection to Source is always available.

It has brought me joy and reignited my innate curiosity and wonder for life and it’s beauty. And I can feel the strength of that amplified by the groups’ energy.

Thank you for this beautiful offering Jaya!”

I was a fan of Jaya’s work prior to registering for her online Energy Therapy course. I wasn’t sure what to expect but was open and excited for the opportunity. The course ended up being amazing and helped me understand the potential I had within myself, gave me understanding of the science, and easy tools to integrate into my everyday life. After just the first week, I began to feel a sense of deep calm and ease.

I am so grateful to discover this knowledge shared during the course, and would recommend it to anyone interested in freeing themself from suffering and thriving in their life by doing self-work in a compassionate way. This journey with you Jaya has helped me so much. So much gratitude.”

~ Guylaine, Teacher, Rockland, Ontario

“Not only did Jaya offer a wide and very interesting modalities of healing, she also began to teach us how she does what she does so miraculously. And encouraged each of us to find our own way into our own knowing and healing. I was delighted to find out  for myself what I already knew but hadn’t yet accessed. I would highly recommend this to those who are interested in learning about energy therapy and using it to assist in their own healing.”

~ Lorraine, Yoga Teacher, Ottawa

“Jaya – thank you so much for the workshop today! Learning some of the theory and research behind the practice(s) was both interesting and really helpful to reconcile this new approach with my rational brain. I found that it also enriched my experience while doing the exercises too! It is clear to me that I still have learning and practice to do, but I definitely feel like I am on the right path.”
