Personalized guidance and practices for your own personal journey

1:1 on going support for the whole duration of mentorship

I. The thinking self

What we explore each month

Meditation and body based mindfulness

The first step into changing our relationship to our body, is to notice the deeply ingrained beliefs and stories we tell ourselves. In this first month we deepen into meditation practices to begin a shedding of the layers of conditioning that keep us separated from the beauty within.

II. The feeling self

Embodiment Practices

We begin to explore the meaning of Embodiment and work with a powerful somatic practice that reconnects us to our capacity to feel again. In this month we learn how to improve our life by listening to the deeply intuitive wisdom of the feeling self.

III. The soft animal of the Body

Nervous System Resilience

In order for us to feel at home again in the body, an organic sense of safety and trust is required. In this month we learn about our nervous system as the most ancient, animal part of our self and we explore techniques both to soothe and to challenge our capacity to feel resilient and at ease in the body.

IV. Embodied self-compassion

Creative, contemplative and somatic practices inspired by Tantric Buddhism & Non dual Kashmir Shaivism 

For our last month we explore the topics of sensuality, nourishment, creativity and deep rest through the eyes of  two different philosophical and spiritual paths that  will inspire us to challenge patriarchal, orthodox and capitalist oriented narratives of somatic oppresion.


The mentorship with Marisel has been more than I could have imagined and hoped for. The tools and wisdom she has provided me with are invaluable and I will take them with me through my journey of life and self discovery. I cannot thank her enough for providing a space that allowed me to be. To be without pressure or rules and it let me unfold and find more contentment.

May we learn to return
And rest in the beauty
Of animal being,
Learn to lean low,
Leave our locked minds,
And with freed senses
Feel the earth
Breathing with us.

─ John O'Donohue
