Quote by Hafiz
Ajaya is the founder of a unique somatic discovery process called, Core Embodiment® — an integrated system of embodiment practices, principles and perceptual orientations to awaken and align with the power of your human potential. She is a certified Biodynamic Craniosacral Integration Teacher, a NARM practitioner (Neuro-affective-relational model) as well as an Authorized Continuum Teacher.
I was also one of the main founding members and visionaries of a 218 acre ecologically sustainable retreat, hot springs and experiential learning center called, Avalon Springs in Middletown Ca from 2005-2012. My main role was in developing whole systems design as well as the internal infrastructure of the culture. I held the role of mediator and counselor to the various departments in the project, to ensure that all parties were taken into account and decisions were based in whole systems thinking. I also guided the spa/health/wellness facet of the project.
Thank you so much for finding me and taking the time to explore my site. The offerings here are a synthesis of my life’s deepest inquires and the journey they have taken me on.
What does it mean to wake up to my totality as a human being? To bring all that I am fully down into this body, to participate in the evolution of consciousness as co-creator with Life? I was blessed to have my early life steeped in a Sufi Community as my Mother was a Sufi Minister. My father was/is an amazing artiest and master of gardening, so I had a very spiritually supported upbringing. My relationship to God as nature, itself has always been my most primary home.
My challenge in life was ‘figuring out’ this mysterious business of being human, having needs and relating with other humans who also have needs! As I grew up, I found that the study of the human body/psyche/spirit was my most passionate interest. I sought to be become a doctor and had some of my first awakenings, quite literally through the study of the heart, itself. After completing my studies in pre-med, I was blessed to find Craniosacral Therapy, and eventually to become a teacher and co-evolutionist of this body of work. Later I became an Authorized Continuum Teacher and immersed myself in perinatal psychology, trauma resolution therapies (NARM) and shamanic energy medicine along the way. I did plenty of long Buddhist silent meditation and Continuum retreats as well as sitting with awakened masters and fervently being a student of Life.
I have to say that no matter how many ‘awakenings’ I experienced, there was still a gap in terms of how this awakening was to be lived in my everyday life. When I followed my passion to study embryology and anatomy from an embodied perspective — meaning, discovering how to have a direct experience—making actual intimate contact with the sentience of my anatomy, that I finally began to bridge this gap.
Having my hands on thousands of people’s core energy anatomy for over 26 years now, has informed me and this body of work, greatly. I have learned how to deeply listen and not interfere by coming with an agenda—even for healing. The body opens to genuine presence, just as all of wild nature does. Experiencing the sentience of my own anatomy and embryology and discovering how to listen into this organizing intelligence of my own system, as well as tapping into this same intelligence in thousands of others, has revealed the deepest satisfaction and insight. I call it, “Cracking God’s Code.”
Meeting this place of inner union over and over again in new ways and learning from what has been my inner teacher all along has revealed the synthesis of Core Embodiment. I have come to see that when we embody our core intelligence, we reclaim a quality of X-Ray vision, a trustworthy guidance system that by design will reveal our greatest destiny, deepest calling and most fulfilling, intimate relationship with existence.
When we can make medicine of our early developmental trauma’s, the inevitable shock traumas along the way, as well as the paradoxes of apparent and real losses of a deeply lived life — by way of integration, not spiritual bypass — we reclaim our wholeness.
I am delighted and honored to bring to you my life’s dedication, great joy and most intimate purpose in being here. The answers I sought in my quest for over 26 years, continue to be revealed in the most satisfying way. In fact, it is through the very process of sharing the practices and principles that are indeed so relevant for our times, that they continue to evolve, as do I. Embodied inquiry and reverent listening are front and center to my commitment to presence and the ongoing revelation of what it is to be truly alive. I invite you to join me and to discover this intimate repartee inside your own skin, from your Heart, to your Hara and beyond.
Now more than ever, we need embodied, alive and honest human beings who are present and available. Grounded in love’s wisdom and the true balance of feminine and masculine power this affords. It is love’s work, through us and as us, if only we can discover how to embody this power with kindness and in a sacred manner. It is time.
I am honored to walk with you deeper and wider still — embodying this great mystery together as we actualize the prophecy of the new earth— the more beautiful world that our hearts know is possible.

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.”
“Don’t ask what the worlds needs, ask what brings you alive and go do that, because the world needs human beings who have come alive.” Robert Thurman
