Finding our voice is both literal and metaphor for finding our place in the world and expressing our gifts through powerful communication. By literally coming to our senses and listening to our bodies, we can learn to connect to a discerning wisdom. This keeps us balanced and centered and able to navigate diversity during times of conflict and uncertainty.
The underlying teaching of these trainings is that to live fully in relationship with others, we must live more fully in our own bodies. Accessing the wisdom of the body helps us to walk our talk in the world, to listen more empathically to others and to embody our principles in order to create Community wherever we are. This requires centering ourselves, learning to listen to our senses and letting the intelligence of our heart and intuition inform our actions and our words.
Woven into our programs are the time-honored lessons of self- mastery and ways to move conflict to connection and healing distilled from the peaceful art of Aikido.
Come explore this unique integration of linguistic, emotional and physical practices designed to help you align your words, movements and being with your deepest values. These trainings will help you develop life long practices for synchronizing language, emotion, actions and meaning.
“We are what we practice” Aristotle
Take a moment to consider a basic somatic principle: you are always practicing something. Right now, you are practicing how you are sitting or standing, how you pay attention to these words, how you judge, how you feel, how you are breathing and more. Within our bodies and minds we carry the sum total of our histories. We are shaped by our experiences and consciously and unconsciously, practicing who we are becoming every day. The habits and patterns we practice over the course of our lifetimes become hard-wired in us cognitively, emotionally and physically and reveal themselves outwardly by our shape, expression, gestures, movements, and behaviors. Our inner world, which expresses itself outwardly, is called the “soma.” Our soma is “me”, our unique and distinctive self. This understanding that we can practice whom it is we choose to become is at the core of Somatic Consensus.
With Nonviolent Communication and Somatic Consensus internal consensus and building consensus with others becomes one integrated practice. Its practice cultivates an environment that is generative for both the individual and the whole and it represents the best of what a new paradigm for the world might be.

The Work of Byron Katie
as facilitated by Helena Montelius
Radical Shift into Love - Meeting the Beloved Within
Welcome Sisters, to the third annual retreat for women where we dive deep into the cleansing waters of Sierra Hot Springs and into our own hearts and minds.
The Work is a simple yet profound process of self-inquiry that helps you identify and question the beliefs, thoughts and stories that cause our stress and pain. Once a painful belief is seen through, it lets go of us. The Work is a very practical, down-to-earth, tool that clears out what is not true for me anymore and leaves me open and free to be and express love without fear or holding back.
I feel very passionate about this work because it has shifted pretty much all relationships in my life. I have healed painful childhood memories and fallen in love with my 83 year- old mom… I have connected with my half brother that I had never met before because I was so angry at my father… I have made sweet peace with my ex-husband…I have called home all the projections I used to send out
We laugh and cry a lot together during this retreat, support and love each other as sisters, share deeply about our lives and bond deeply…welcome, welcome, welcome…
About Helena: I am 52 and a mother of two; my son Jon who left this earth in 2001 and my daughter Leah soon-to-be 13. I live with my family on 17 acres outside Nevada City. I am a Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie and have practiced The Work since 2000. I have been a meditation student/teacher for over 30 years.
Food: There is a communal kitchen at Sierra Hot Springs where you can store food and cook. We usually do a communal dinner on Saturday evening. There is also a café at Sierraville and 2 restaurants in the nearby village.
