The Immersion is a nature-based exploration for women, diving into the heart of becoming more human. in fully meeting and emboldening our purpose of being human, we make space to live more of what we are as a gift to self and world.

 
 

Working with maps as guides through the terrain of the psyche, this journey ushers forth and strengthens facets of self, many of which have become convoluted, overplayed or exiled through history and in modernity. These aspects are essential to our wholeness. They are simultaneously generative and wild, transformative and peaceful, rooted and exalted. They call us to commune with supreme grief and great joy, and they animate both within and beyond.

We will also open the door to facets of the psyche that may have settled into protective, wounded, hidden, quiet or even forgotten places – all of which are to be welcomed home. For they, too, are a part of being fully human.

Our humanness cannot be so without the greater systems we are within and around, and the deep intimacy our individual life has with others, earth, spirit and all-life. In so, further exploration may move into into spaces such as: ancestry and lineage, identity, justice, sociological explorations, conversation with more-than-human life, prayer and eco-spirituality.

As human beings, our purpose is to be human. And so, this work explores how we can simply be more of just that. In letting ourselves be(come) more of what we are, we then make space to live more of what we are as a gift to self and this world. And so, the bridge in Bridging the Soul is our humanness. 

 
 

 
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. I have such trust in her and her service to others and such gratitude for her impact in my life. Thank you friend!

The Immersion is for those receiving a knock at the door. for those who sense a desire for a more whole and healed relationship to self. for those who are willing to rest in complexity and become intimate with well-worn grooves. for those ready to build a wi(l)der, deeper, fuller relationship to life.

Every human has a unique story and experience. While there may be core practices and explorations within the Immersion, no one person ever receives the same support as another - for all require a unique compass. The Immersion generally calls upon the below offerings to illuminate the path home:
