Create a nourishing relationship with food, love your body, and rediscover Soul. 


FOOD

Food is nourishment - vitality. Every woman is born with an innate sense of knowing and intuition of how to best utilize food to fuel her unique and bio-individual body. 

Over time, we have shifted into a culture that promotes: micro-management, suffering, dis-ease, and personal mistrust around one's relationship with food. 

Bridging the Soul was created for women to reconnect to the innate wisdom within, to let go of suffering, and to rebuild a relationship with food that is of ease, peace, and joy.

BODY

Bodies are the holders of knowledge and wisdom. They are greatest tools to live out passion, connect with loved ones, work, play, and gather insight.

Along the way, women's bodies have become a thing to control and manage. The aesthetic of the body has become the focal-point, creating a loss in experiencing the body as a tool to live life through.

The time has come to reclaim love for the body - stepping away from feeling imprisoned within it, and instead creating a relationship that provides both health and freedom.

SOUL

The Soul is home. It is the wise place within. A place that exists beyond the thinking mind; a place that has always been and will always be.  

Soul is the integral yet forgotten piece of the puzzle that dramatically shifts the food-body paradigm. When repeated patterns of discomfort and suffering occur, there is likely something within the Soul that yearns to be seen, heard, or healed.

Bridging the Soul supports women to remember the wise Soul within, while simultaneously using Soul as a guide to peace with food and love for the body.

Your highest health.

 

Moving past the struggle around the food-body paradigm requires letting go of predictability and control, and instead stepping into ease and trust. Together, we will explore and implement how to guide you to your greatest and most sustainable health, while not killing you or your body in the process.  

These relationships are never black or white, good or bad, right or wrong - and they differ from woman to woman. This re-patterning is complex and requires an abundance of discovery, compassion, understanding, and attention that takes time, love, and commitment.

The Immersion was created to fully meet and support every woman's unique needs, reminding you that there is not one diet, body, or way of being. Instead, your highest health is that which best nourishes you and allows for you to truly live in a state of ease, joy, and freedom.

Home is within.

 

Home is your essence. Home is the place that, even in the midst of the storm, reminds you who you are - beyond behavior and choices, beyond body. Home is the strong, but subtle voice within that is your greatest guide.  Home is Wisdom. Home is Soul

After years of working specifically in the realm food and the body, it is clear that Soul is the forgotten bridge that can support women in accessing and experiencing profound healing. As Bill Plotkin describes, "We encounter soul through the wildness of our lives." 

Bridging the Soul was designed two-fold. The first: to use the "wildness" of your experience to guide you back to Soul. And second: to then utilize the Soul as a powerful teacher to support you in dreaming to life a new reality.

Unravel and reweave your relationship with food, your body, and Soul.

 

The Bridging the Soul Immersion blends tools in modern therapeutic treatment with alternative modalities to create powerful opportunities for meaningful change and true healing.  The development of the Immersion stems from years of working closely with women and in so, discovering how necessary a multi-approach program is in order to truly experience healing and real change. 

Together, we will utilize the mind as a powerful tool to release suffering and discomfort by dismantling years of deeply engrained thinking patterns and behaviors, while simultaneously rebuilding ones that actually serve you. The Immersion is designed to offer tools (that you will learn how to use) to guide you back to the innate wisdom that has always been within you - mind, body, and Soul.

The world as a teacher.

 

After years of working directly with women around food relationships and body image, it has become extremely clear that the connections to food, body, and Soul are irrevocably mirrored in our connection with the natural world.  How we connect within can be better understood and healed as we more deeply explore the elements, directions, and archetypes found throughout the world and within us. We are born from the natural world and with that comes a powerful opportunity to more deeply explore and utilize the lessons it offers.

If you are interested in learning, personal growth, and are open to new perspectives, then Natalie is the person for you. I am so inspired and drawn to her innate wisdom, ability, manner, and in short, by who she is. She has helped me connect to the deeper and true meaning of my life, and has reaffirmed through our work that it is an ongoing process. We are unfolding in our nature and it is wonderful to be supported on this journey.

I have gained a softer, more understanding side of myself that shows up in subtle ways, and also in a richer more glorious side. This work has been incorporated into who I have become and shows itself on a daily basis. I have gained invaluable tools to draw upon in times when I dearly need them. Personal growth is important to me and this evolution of my soul helps me and the world. There is much more to say, but I will let you discover for yourself.

Working with Natalie was the step that finally let me make the shift I had spent years trying to. After many years of compulsive, emotional, and binge eating, and hating my body thereafter, I had no idea there was a way out. I thought that was my life. Now, I no longer feel shameful when it comes to food and that alone has completely revolutionized my relationship with it. I suggest working with Natalie for anyone dealing with body or food stuff - on any scale.

I found Natalie at just the right point in my personal journey of growth and healing. Her soulful support and compassion is a perfect compliment to her skillfulness in sharing knowledge and wisdom. This combination makes her a safe, effective ally in any journey towards health. I have such trust in her and her service to others and such gratitude for her impact in my life.

Thank you friend!

It is hard to put into words just how much I appreciate having worked with Natalie. I had no idea just how much my relationship with my body was keeping from living life the life I wanted. I no longer dislike myself, and I truly know I am worth having what I want. Because of this, too, my relationship with food has completely changed. I no longer get nervous about eating or freak out about what it will or won’t do to my body. Natalie seriously changes lives.

My issues with food and body image go way back. For a long time I didn’t even know there was any other way - I was totally engulfed. I was stuck in darkness without a light. Nothing worked. Everything felt like a battle that the dark part of me won, easily, every time.

I came across an article written by Natalie and for the first time it sounded like someone understood the experience I was dealing with: the fear, the thoughts, the pain. From the first conversation I knew Natalie was someone I could relate to. This made a huge difference to other experiences, where I had felt very much a ‘patient.’ This time I felt I had found a connection - someone with authenticity and experience and a view of life that I had, too.
Over the past year I have come a very long way and I am really grateful to Natalie for being there for the journey. She is an extremely kind and generous person with a wealth of knowledge. It is amazing to feel supported and understood and free to talk honestly to someone you trust and are inspired by.
