Hello and Welcome! I am so thrilled that you found me! My name is Ajaya Sommers and I function most essentially as an alchemist of the heart – devoted to practicing love as the highest universal law of existence. What I know to be true is that we are each here to express our unique essence purpose. We discover this most often, by making medicine of our traumas and painful life lessons. To let the pain of all that we cannot control in our own lives and the world at large, break our hearts open wider and wider, still. To allow our human losses, our devastations and disillusionments to fortify a deeper realization of our eternal heart that can never actually be broken or betrayed. Through this awakening process, our natural response is to expand our reach, out beyond what we previously knew could be possible- out beyond ourselves and our personal needs, hopes and fears. Into greater compassion, care, kindness and service to others. What I know to be true is that we each have a unique role to play in evolving the consciousness of our planet through this simple kindness and care and that is our hearts true nature.
It is truly my inspiration and honor to share with you through this platform that is the synthesis of all of my life’s experience, studies and credentials a new paradigm of awakening and embodiment. I offer committed containers of support for people just like you. Underneath and alongside whatever professional title you hold- you are a mom or a dad, an uncle, or auntie- a brother or sister, daughter or son. You are human and we are all equal in this way that we all live in the same unknown of our inevitable death to our form, while simultaneously we abide in the truth of our eternity. We share the common ground of both our fragility and our strength. It is this quality of intimacy with our inevitable death and the inevitable death of all that we care about that I believe invites a deeper aspiration to live our love and care more fully out loud with each day. Living our love out loud is the leadership required to transform our world. You may not think of yourself as a “leader” but in my view, we are all leaders!
My means of supporting this process is through creating safe containers where the transformational power of intimacy can unfold a deeper congruence and harmony between all of the precious facets of your inner and outer lives.
The immense challenges that we are facing in our global environment these days require each of us to show up fully and embrace the work that is ours to do. In order to be effective in our unique paths of service, we must be aligned with our soulful destiny threads, which being grounded in our connection with our own bodies, our families and our larger eco-system reveals.
I provide safe, nurturing and catalyzing spaces to support those who are ready to dive in deep and learn how to feel, honor, inquire and embrace anything that may be held in the body, the psyche or the soul that you experience as obstructing the way for you to show up as your most authentic, fulfilled, empowered and creative self in the world. I can help you bridge the gaps where you may not feel congruent in your personal, professional or somatic experience.
I would say that my most unique gift is that I have the capacity to see and feel into the central channel – the very core or midline of another. You can think of this space and place as your bio- antenna – that which is designed to guide you through every step of your precious life. I can see how well this line of energy is connected or where it may be bent or twisted, broken or diminished and therefor distorting your capacity to receive your deepest guidance.
When traumas from the past are not resolved and integrated – we end up seeing and feeling through the projections of those unresolved experiences that are quite literally frozen in time. Distorting our capacity to sense into the present moment. The antidote? We engage the warmth of our loving presence together. We give permission to the untold stories to thaw and unwind by the presence of our warmth together and we write a new narrative based on your true values, needs and deepest heart desires. Through conscious breath, sound, movement and touch, I can support you in such a way that ALL of you can come into alignment. We can re-align that inner bio-antenna; no matter how disconnected or damaged you may feel. Together we can walk you home to your wholeness again.
I work with entrepreneurs, business executives, visionary change agents, teachers, and millennials who are seeking greater connection to this wholeness of which I speak. So that you can reconnect with the larger view of your Life’s purpose and your authentic contribution within it.
Happiness is when
your thoughts, words

The Eight-Fold Path
Core Embodiment® is a perceptual, biological and experiential model based upon knowledge gleaned from quantum physics, new schools of psychology and the direct experience of pioneering practitioners in the field of Biodynamic Craniosacral, Continuum Movement Arts and Trauma Resolution Therapies. As we reconnect with the natural world, we discover the laws on which biology organizes itself. As we align with these laws of nature, we join in the choreography of the Universe, enjoying our inherent connection and felt sense of belonging as conscious creators with life. Core Embodiment is based upon embryology, energy anatomy and physiology of the human design. We are inherently whole, connected and complete beings, each with our own built-in guidance system of bio-intelligence. Health and wholeness are our natural state. Physical, psychological or spiritual symptoms arise as intelligent messengers. Our sensations, feelings and needs are nature’s way of revealing this exquisite biofeedback system. These indicators invite us to feel and sense what is needed for optimum health and wholeness. Living in this body-centered awareness, we have the capacity to respond as conscious creators rather than victims of circumstance. Every potential life choice is available to us when we are present. We need only rediscover our capacity to relax into our core, ground into the electromagnetic field of Earth and allow our nervous systems to naturally regulate. As we cultivate our Core Embodiment, we enter the fundamental space of pure potential–the Source energy of the Universe. In fact, we are this energy, and we are designed to thrive inside this flow and exchange between the biosphere and our own healthy vibrant miracle of a body.
What if your life’s expression could be completely aligned with your inner values and you could live, breath and express from the inside out? What if the outer world of your work, home and relationships was a clear reflection of the inner world of your authentic values, impulses and direct experience of truth?
Living from this place of connection to your innate biological intelligence is the basis of trust from which inner guidance arises. When we align with and follow this guidance, our life journey reveals itself through meaningful purpose, fulfillment and joy. We can live our lives in this way. How?
By not overriding or bypassing our direct experience with the loud survival circuitry that often takes precedence by having the strongest inner radio voice. This voice lives in the unconscious layers held in our tissues that have kept us frozen in time, clouded by the lens of our unresolved history, cultural conditioning and ancestry. As we cultivate our awareness in the core, the bright fire of our true self grows, gently melting and dissolving the layers that have clouded our vision and kept us small and stuck. Core Embodiment is the actual evolutionary awakening process by which we ignite that inner pilot light, giving us the agency to see, hear and feel our inner guidance accurately. As we awaken, we harness our super powers as modern day shamans, transforming the world through the touch of our clear, unobstructed perception. The new physics has shown that when we take complete responsibility for everything that appears in our experience, we become conscious participants in our evolutionary process. We are the creators of our reality, creating by virtue of what we perceive and how we act upon these perceptions.
The art of thriving and becoming masters of our creation requires us to fully land our consciousness in the core of our bodies where the quiet truth of our being resides. The art of embodying our core is a moment-to-moment invitation to listen and feel from inside the gut brain, the heart brain and the head brain. When these three main oscillating centers of perception come into harmony with one another, we come into the natural expression of coherence, AKA a felt sense of inner alignment. Discovering this felt sense of inner alignment often behooves a process of thawing the unresolved ancestral trauma, developmental and shock trauma that may still be frozen in time and vibrating in the nervous system and the implicit memory within our tissues. Thus obstructing our capacity to feel the present moment accurately. Unconsciously clouded by these ghosts of the past, the tendency can be to attempt to reject these unwanted, abandoned and unloved places by trying to fix, change, control or get rid of them. This is the trap of spiritual bypassing that we must discover how to be awake to. Nothing will transform in this climate of violence. This is not the master that we want to serve. How do we shift the inner climate?
By relaxing out of orientations of fixing, changing, dismissing and thus abandoning our direct experience. Instead, we practice re-associating to our body felt sense by orienting to our sense of safety as a resource in the present moment. Conscious movement of breath, pleasure and relaxation become the sensual indicators of grounding into our bodies. We practice by inquiring into our core needs, feelings and impulses. Honoring each as a Holy Messenger that have come to reveal all of the wise guidance needed in any given moment. We act on this guidance through conscious breath, conscious speech, conscious thought, conscious will, conscious touch and conscious action.
The Eight-Fold Path
We practice through provocative inquiry that pattern interrupts route habitual behavior and instead gives us the agency to make conscious choices.These are our God given gifts.
I believe that we do not have free will to exercise the power of choice with these gifts until we have come home to our midline, our core—the seat of clear awareness that is our True Self.
When we are Home, all of our gestures naturally arise through the center of the Love, Power and Wisdom that we are. Core Embodiment® is an evolutionary path- not a fixed set of rules, protocols and regulations. It is an inner map of your essence circuitry embodied that is ancient and ever freshly revealing itself. The path of the unique and wise territory of your souls exquisite embodiment adventure called “Discovering your Intimate Purpose.”
