Creativity

laya-shriaberg-biography3In the last 3 decades, I have participated in endless trainings, read endless books on the whole range and gamut of all sorts of healing. Through decades of embodied meditational practices, my focus bridges the ultra finity of the body and the expansive infinity of the universe. Through massage and energy healing, I work with the infinite in the smallest structures of the body as well as with universal energy that wants to inform the body.

Emotional and visceral awareness are of paramount importance in my work. Through conscious awareness, movement and action, we become aware that our feelings and sensations are already in conversation with our bodies. Through the embodied meditational bodywork that I offer, I encourage the cultivation of your visceral and emotional awareness. My experience is that when deep inner and outer relationship are paired, we are ushered through the gates of great change. 

Conscious change is what it’s really all about!

 

Maturity

I am a mature and young 64 year old. I celebrate that I’ve made it this far! I am trying on the elder garments and I am in touch with having something to say. I am an elder who has presence, wisdom and healing skills. I would love to share this in confidence with you.

I have been blessed with resilient health for over 6 decades, and have been engaging in sacro-magical and healing arts of all persuasions spanning 4 decades. I am most excited about Sidereal Astrology, Aroma Healing, (the royalty of herbalism), Bespoke Botanical Perfumery, Cranial Sacral Therapy,  Registered Massage Therapy, Energy Healing, The Yoni Tour Project,  and the facilitation of Wedding Ceremonies.

 

Long-range spiritual perspective

I have always worked with the processing of dreams and energy consciousness.

Today, I find, there is so much more potential for human evolution than there was 40, or 30, even 20 years ago. Now it is easier to dethrone dogma and outdated habits of all kinds, and to choose to embody our unique ways of consciously radiating the life force from within our bodies. These ways change moment-to-moment, person-to-person, lifetime-to-lifetime, generation-to-generation, millenium-to-millenium. The trick is to creatively incorporate our amusement, awareness, discernment, discipline, focus, grace, humility and orientation into our lives. Self-awareness, self-compassion and self-love DO reside at our cores and are our continuous resource.
