SomaSoul Therapy with Malka Sima

Malka Sima integrates the power of Body-Centered Gestalt Psychotherapy and Polyvagal Theory with Torah, the freedom of the expressive arts, safe touch, laughter, mindfulness, compassionate presence, thoughtful conversation, and emotional release.  She will help you to come into profound connection with yourself, others, and the Holy One; access your Ruach haKodesh (divinely inspired intuition); and become free from what is preventing you from fully engaging in your life.  

Typically within a session, you are invited to share a challenging or stressful life experience and/or feeling experience you wish to explore.  Malka Sima helps you navigate these issues from a more intimate connection to your body's wisdom, within the safety of loving presence.

As I guide you, you will learn to relate to your emotional distress in a mindful, compassionate, and body-centered way. 

Moonlit Circle:  Heartfelt Torah in Authentic Community

In our Moonlit Circle workshops, we invite you to experience a palpable sense of relationship with your Creator, an embodied spiritual delight that happens when integrating ancient Torah wisdom into your heart, cells, bones, and spaces.  Combining Torah texts (with an emphasis on Kabbalah and the teachings of Sarah Yehudit Schneider of A Still Small Voice) with neuroscience and therapeutic practices allows for the learning to go beyond the intellect and to reach core. 

 

The sacred space of caring community that is created in our online and in-person workshops leads to deep healing and transformation. 

Our series of classes on accessing the spiritual potential of the Jewish Calendar guide you toward more G!d consciousness in your everyday moments, and brings meaning and intention to your avodat Hashem.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle touch therapy that promotes the body's natural healing capacities.  CST releases restrictions in the muscles and fascial tissues, promoting health and alleviating stress.  The gradual release of chronic tensions inside the body can significantly improve both physical and mental well-being.  

It is a safe, ethical, and embodied type of touch. Ongoing verbal and nonverbal consent is essential and of the utmost importance.  Touch is done while the client is fully clothed and a massage table is used.
