Soulful: A Somatic Embodiment Retreat for Healing & Wellness Practitioners with Shelby & Teresa

Sunday May 12 - Saturday May 18, 2024

Born out of burnout, this retreat guides you into deep nourishment and re-alignment with your soul's compass. Find your True North through gently settling your nervous system and sinking into spaciousness so you can listen, receive and respond to the wisdom of your body, heart and mind.

This gathering of deep feelers, sensitive souls and adventurous spirits is a grounding, spacious, connecting way to return home to your deepest heart. Here you'll find daily teachings and workshops on how to welcome all parts of yourself as you learn to more playfully ride the waves moment-to-moment and meet yourself and all that you carry in a fresh way.

Come celebrate and luxuriate in the company of other coaches, therapists and health and well-being professionals surrounded by the sea and tropical forests. This unique trauma-informed retreat is designed to help you regulate your nervous system through somatic and embodied practices so that you can expand your capacity for even more well-being, health, wealth, connection, clarity, and steadiness. You give so much to others, here is a time to allow yourself to receive, be held and lean in.

What kind of abundance could you have in your life if you were able to slow down?
An invitation to
  • make space,
  • to find freedom.

Shelby Leigh, LPC Retreat Host

Shelby Leigh, LPC, is an educator, trauma specialist, somatic psychotherapist, coach, consultant and meditation teacher whose work celebrates the infinite possibilities of healing and growth.

Shelby is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Mindfulness and Meditation teacher, a Certified Yoga Teacher, a twice-certified coach, has devoured numerous trainings in the somatic treatment of complex and developmental trauma, and has taught, managed, and facilitated multiple dozens of retreats throughout the US and Mexico to both teens and adults. She has sat for months in silence as a practitioner and gone to the far ends of the world learning from a variety of teachers from many traditions (Eastern and Western). Shelby is a proud alumna of California Institute of Integral Studies in Somatic Psychology where her passion was sparked for integrating meditation, spirituality, embodiment and trauma healing.

She has worked extensively as a raft and kayak guide and travel photographer, and loves the role of adventure and outdoors in the practice of waking up. Shelby has also served in various roles to promote safer spaces for individuals from many backgrounds and who hold various intersections of identity, so that they can feel welcome to be their fullest selves.

As the founder of programs such as Creating Safe Space and Body of Work, Shelby teaches therapists, coaches, wellness practitioners and facilitators the importance of the role of non-pathologizing ourselves as well as others in the healing process, and also (slowly) coming home to our bodies in a way that feels gentle and supportive.

With over 20 years of experience facilitating and practicing Buddhist Insight Meditation and embodiment practices, Shelby has become a worldwide advocate for trauma-informed practices so that whoever needs them the most can truly receive and take up the nourishment from them. From nervous system regulation and co-regulation work (Transforming Presence®), to meditation and yoga, to chopping wood and carrying water - when we’re supported through trauma-informed guidance (whether we’ve been impacted and overwhelmed by trauma or we’re simply human), it helps us more easily learn, heal and grow, and ultimately take it with us for a lifetime.

You’ll find Shelby on the trail every day whether rain, ice, snow or shine along with her Border Collie/Lab Luna. She’s also lived in Mexico, Bali, Spain, and London, and has learned immensely while traveling solo throughout many parts of the world since age 15. Now at home in Bend, Oregon, when she’s not seeing clients or teaching, she’s on a snowboard, XC skis, riding horses, laying by a river, canoeing, rafting, camping, off-roading, picking up trash with Public Land Stewards Bend or pretty much anything she can do to be in the presence of nature where she feels most at home and with a sense of belonging.

Teresa Prado Nogueira Somatic Movement Facilitator

Teresa Prado has been a movement instructor for the past seven years after finishing the Rizze Yoga Immersion Training in Vancouver. Since then, they have done extensive training in somatic movement alongside training and volunteering with Yoga Outreach to offer free trauma-informed movement practices to a diverse population, from rehab centres to seniors' homes.

With a slow and steady rhythm in order to be inclusive of all bodies and abilities, Teresa encourages folks to tap into their needs to experience the class however they wish. The main objective is to offer a safer place for people to connect with their bodies and explore what movement, breath and mindfulness means to themselves.
