Seeds of Soma
We’re Nisha + MeLisa, and we're honored that you're here and excited to connect!
First things first...What is SOMA?
Nectar or juice of life, vitality, rejuvenation; Essence of the Moon goddess.
The Body; The embodied experience of the mind, emotions, and spirit.
These are all signs that an increase in SOMA may be needed in your life:
Do you move in and out of low vitality, energy, or immunity? Feel depleted or past your capacity?
Maybe you don’t quite feel like your visions for your internal and external landscapes match, or you feel that your visions for your spiritual self and actions in your daily life aren’t being embodied in the way you want.
Feeling stuck in or struck down and exhausted by navigating the complexities of our world, and are in need of more creative vitality, deeper understanding, and refining practices in order to work with, understand, and transform the negative impacts?
Do you feel like you could use support for figuring out how to activate and integrate a spiritual path or practice that aligns with your values, is holistic, AND respects your knowledge, experience, and needs?
There are many wisdom traditions around the world that have similar concepts and understandings of life-giving and life-rejuvenating energy. In the South Asian derived Ayurveda and Yogic sciences, SOMA is known as the nourishing, loving, and peace-elevating essence that supports and governs rejuvenation and immunity (a.k.a Ojas), of the body, mind, and spirit.
Our Integrative Wellness (and Trauma Informed Practice), bridges newly developed practices with time-tested wellness modalities from diverse wisdom traditions we have studied, practiced, and have been initiated into. These work with the body, mind, and spirit as the gateways of SOMA rejuvenation down to the cellular memory level. This creates transformative impacts in the body, the mental-emotional channels, and opens us to greater spiritual healing connection and awakening.
Stories of SOMA
Our inspiration and purpose was to create systems of support for other people’s journeys in ways that weren’t available to us. It was important for us to fill in these gaps and hold A LOT of space for healing trauma and the traumatic impacts of living in our complex world.
Our regional experiences (one of us born and raised in the Canada and one born and raised in US), working and living in a wide spectrum of diverse communities, having embodied experiences of being Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour/Color, having the privilege of visiting other lands around Mother Earth, immigrant experience, and being of the diaspora have been extremely important in informing our work.
We birthed SOMA out of LOTS of journeying.
Going really deep, bringing the fierce inner realness, and intentional engagement with ALOT of people, places, communities, and hearts for the purpose of growth, wellness, transformation, evolution, and sharing love. Like so many others, our stories are wayyyyy too long and complex to share here, but we can tell you that the journey has been really slow, really fast, really deep, really terrifying, long-term, intentional, and over-flowing with beauty. We are still in it and plan to be for as long as we are connected with breath.
We come ready and prepared to support others who have a calling to learn and develop “new-old” ways of moving through and authentically thriving in this complex world.
Because the two of us have had vastly different life journeys (and sometimes parallel), we each bring specific experiential understandings and knowledge. We joined forces because of our love and respect for the power of each of our individual journeys and the vision for the impact that combining our energies could bring to others. We also felt moved to disrupt the extreme individualism that has such negative impact on individual internal healing, relationships, and communities.

Soma is a Social Enterprise + Community
We don’t usually talk about this part of SOMA but people started to be interested so we felt like it was important to share about how SOMA is wayyyy more than just us. We have been cultivating and-recultivating a growing community. Soma’s model allows you to become a part of an on-going growing movement of people excited about collective and community health that’s sustainable for more people.
When you purchase a MoonGold Video Membership or a Deep Dive Online Program, a portion of the funds are directed to youth centered projects, subsidized or partially subsidized programs, and One-to-One Sessions. You’re not just giving yourself the gift of wellness and personal development, but also sharing that gift with someone else.
