What is Soma & Soul? Soma & Soul is a therapeutic coaching company that offers individual somatic coaching, courses and retreats.

Her goal with The Somatic Pollinator Course is to spread the reach of trauma healing work to as many people as possible so we can all heal from the effects of our trauma and help others.
What are Experientials? We reference "experientials" in the course videos. Please check out the Geek Out NOT Freak Out sections on each module to sign up for a live somatic coaching call! Experiential calls are FREE & Included in your subscription. We have 2 types of experiential sessions: 1. Experiential Practice Sessions (where you can practice with other people taking the course) & 2. Case Consults (where you can bring your cases to the live call and we will consult with you on how to use somatic principles to work with your client).
Will I receive a certificate for attending this course? Yes! Our course is able to offer a certification at this time through Soma & Soul. This course is meant to be kept at the lowest fee possible so as to reach the most amount of people with our training in the Foundations of Trauma Healing Work. Each course participant will need to take learning outcome quiz at the end of the course to recieve their certificate and one year provider directory as a Somatic Practitioner. Email us with questions about our certification program at email@example.com
If I miss a live EXPERIENTIAL call, will I have access to this call? Due to the nature of trauma and our live experientials, these calls will not be recorded and made for distribution at this time. We may consider taping portions of the zoom call and showing clips of calls in the Community section of the app for discussion. A participant on the live call may determine it is safe to share something with the current participants on the call but that would be hard to assess afterwards. In live calls, participants are "donating their bodies to science" and learning of others and it is best contained on the live call so please join us and plan ahead!!
