The Root of our Wounded Relationship with the Body

 

Our relationship with our body is at the very core of our lives -I would go so far as to say that it’s the single most important relationship of all. It is the foundation, the ground upon which everything else gets built; the space through which we experience life; and an accurate reflection of our relationship with ourselves. If we don’t feel safe, present, comfortable and connected inside our very own bodies, it’s hard to be so in any other area and relationship. 

And yet, for so many of us, for most of us really, this relationship has been deeply wounded.

We have all been raised and live in, what I call, the “Inanimate Body Culture”, teaching us that the body is but a machine that has no life or intelligence of its own, and that who we are as people -our Self and Soul- is completely separate from and external to the body.

Our awareness around body-image issues has deepened significantly over the last few years -and thankfully so. Several important movements have grown on the antipode of this paradigm, which challenge beauty and body standards, increase representation of different shapes and sizes, and remind us that our looks are not everything. That is great, absolutely great. And, there is more to that.

Body-image is just one aspect of our relationship with our bodies. Changing the way we view our body and learning to appreciate ourselves beyond our appearance are extremely important acts, but by taking our focus away from the body itself, we miss the opportunity to (re-) discover the magnificence that our physical being holds, and is. 

I have been working in the field of Eating and Body-Image psychology for almost a decade now, and there is one thing that has become more than clear to me in those years:

At the root of all the difficulties we face with our bodies and body-image, as well as with food, weight and ourselves as a whole, lies our deep forgetting of the true nature and essence of the Body. That of Soul.

 

 

Your Body Speaks Your Soul

 

This is the Truth we have forgotten:

Our physical body is SO much more than flesh and bones, muscles and fat, inches and pounds. It is, really, synonymous, with our soul and psyche, and at the same time, the vessel for their expression. Like Marion Woodman acknowledged, we cannot separate one from the other, we cannot (wholly and deeply) work with and transform one without the other.

The difficulties we face with our bodies are a surface-level manifestation, a symptom, of deeper, inner challenges on the level of soul and psyche. Which is why nutrition and exercise alone will never be the answer. These struggles are messages from our soul, inviting us (sometimes dragging us) toward greater balance and wholeness.

From this perspective, the body is not a problem to be solved, but a solution to, pretty much, everything. And re-membering that changes our relationship with our bodies at the deepest level, for good.

 

This course has been created with the intention to provide the space and tools for activating this remembrance.

 

 

 

 

 

The SoulBody: Bridging the Material and the Psychospiritual

 

Every part of the body is a whole world unto itself.

From Somatic Psychology, we know that the body remembers and stores all our life experiences, good and bad, in our very cells and tissues, as well as physical patterns and habits in response to those experiences -what is known as body armoring. 

From Energy (Chakra) Psychology and Anatomy, we know that each body area is home to one of the energy centres (chakras), which is in turn associated with a specific phase of our development, certain skills and qualities of our personality, parts of ourselves and our psyche, as well as with an element of nature and one or more archetypes (universal/mythological patterns of behaviour and ways of being).

Anodea Judith describes the energy system as “the architecture of the Soul”.

Due to the fact that the energy centres are located in the body, they act as bridges between the physical and the psychospiritual. And this is where the key to shifting our relationship with our bodies lies. 

Depending on our experiences growing up and on whether our basic needs at each developmental stage were sufficiently met or not (and for the vast majority of us, they weren’t), certain imbalances get created which affect our relationship with our body, and soul. I often imagine it like little ‘gaps’ or ‘breaks’ in our make-up that are waiting to be repaired and ‘filled’. 

This is exactly what we are going to be doing in the course –discovering where the gaps, blocks and imbalances lie in our relationship with our bodies, by exploring our history, background and experiences in each body/soul part, and then bringing healing where it is needed, through tools and practices from the Embodiment and Somatic traditions, Depth Psychology & Goddess/Earth-based Spirituality, so as to release blocked energy, develop our skills and capacities, and activate the dormant potential of each centre and body area.

In essence, we will be bringing our whole body, part by part, to life, awakening and unleashing its gifts and innate wisdom, while nurturing and healing our relationship with it -from the inside. 

 

 

How it works

 

The programme consists of 7 teaching modules, with an extra orientation week and opening ceremony at the beginning, and an integration month and closing ceremony at the end. Modules are organised by energy centre, starting from the root and moving upward through the body and the elements. Each module is broken down into 2-3 parts (gateways) and each gateway is 2 weeks long.

 

New material will be released at the beginning of each gateway in a private membership area and it will be a combination of video, audio and written guidance and practices relevant to the topic and area we are focusing on.

 

Each gateway begins with a live 90-min teaching & witnessing call, which will take place on a Monday -time to be confirmed.

 

You will then be encouraged to work with the material and share your experience in our private Facebook group, as well as ask questions and receive support. 

 

In the last week of each module, we will have a group coaching call to which you can bring all the questions, needs and difficulties that may have come up for you through working with the material and receive guidance and support by me.

The Nature of this Work

 

Embodied

Everything we do happens in and though the body. That is because we simply can’t heal our relationship with the body outside of it -we can’t do it through the mind. The body is our ground, starting and end point, guide and container for ALL that we do. We trust it as the source of Truth and the holder of a Wisdom much deeper than that of the mind.

 

Alchemical

Alchemy is the process of combining different substances and elements, in the right environment, in order to produce a specific outcome. Alchemists took dark matter and turned it into gold. They did not ‘get rid’ of anything -they transformed the original material, they transmuted it.

This is the approach we adopt in this work too -we don’t want to get rid of your body difficulties, so that you become ‘better’. We lean into the “dark matter” that you bring in, deepen into it and approach it with the knowing that it already contains “your gold”.

We work with the Chakras and the Elements, and the inner processes of traditional Alchemy, in order to discover the optimal combination of the right “proportions” for your relationship with your Body to return to its natural, wild and free state. 

 

SoulWork

Soul vs Spirit. My use of Soul is similar to Carl Jung’s concept of the Self. Soul incorporates both psychology and spirituality, the mundane and the mystical, the personal and the transpersonal -and, doesn’t make a sharp distinction between the two. In Soul Work, we look for the spiritual inside our everyday life, not beyond it. We find the Soul in the Body, not outside of it. We are concerned with going *deeper*, not higher.

We do soul work, because healing our relationship with our body is a soul journey, a psychospiritual journey.

At the deepest level, it is an initiation, an invitation to greater wholeness, to stepping into more of who we are -ultimately, to embodying our Soul more fully. For true healing to happen, our whole life and self need to be touched and alchemically transformed -not just our body and body-image patterns. Those are but the symptom, not the root-cause. And this is exactly where we want to go; to the root. 

 

The Power of Community

 

When it comes to our relationship with our bodies and ourselves, as women, a lot of our wounding comes from the way we have been conditioned to see and treat other women -like a threat, like competition, like the source of a comparison that will determine our worth. As much work as we may do on our personal relationship with our body and self privately (which is incredible and so very important), there is an aspect of it that can only become visible, felt and healed within community.

Our struggles are personal as much as they are collective. And so is our healing.

That’s why at the very core of this programme lies community. Community that feels like home, like a safe refuge. Community that is spacious, soft and true.

Imagine us sitting around a metaphorical fire, and connecting, sharing, seeing each other, learning and growing together. 

As an empath and highly sensitive, I know that group work can feel intimidating to many, so, I am creating this space to feel welcoming to all, with lots of respect for our individual differences and unique ways of being.

I’m envisioning us coming together, just as we are, with no boxes to tick, taking the masks that we normally wear off, sharing about our light and our shadow, our joys and struggles alike, and being received into a warm embrace, with kindness and lots and lots of heart. I see a space in which we can be completely ‘other’ (different, unique, weird, ourselves) and still be together and connected. There is so much we can learn from each other. Within a safe and sacred space, the energy and the intention that brings us together gets amplified infinitely. Actual magic happens in there, which is hard to even put into words.

 

I’m holding this space, standing at the gate and inviting you with all my heart to step in and create it with me.

Body Remembrance, Healing & Reclamation! 

 

 

 

Hello, friend!

 

I’m Stella and it’s such a joy to connect with you! 

 

I’m Stella Stathi MA, and I’m a Jungian/Somatic Psychotherapist & Coach, Eating Psychology & Body-Image Specialist and Body Priestess. 

 

My work is dedicated to reimagining and reclaiming the Body through and as Soul. I deeply believe that re-membering the true nature of the Body has the potential to transform not only our relationship with it, but our lives as a whole. 

 

My passion about the Body and our relationship with it was ignited through my personal journey of healing from years of eating disorders and negative body-image in my early twenties. During and after my recovery, I immersed myself into intensive studies in the fields of Womxn’s Food & Body Psychology, Depth Psychology, Embodiment & Somatic Movement Therapy, Chakra Therapy & Goddess/Earth-based Spirituality. Everything I’ve learnt through both my personal experience and professional qualifications, I have brought into my approach, Priestessing the Body (formerly Body Prema). 

 

For almost a decade now, I have been helping heart-centred womxn, empaths and highly sensitives heal from Food and Body-Image difficulties, from the inside out, through embodied, alchemical Soul-Work.  

 

I am originally from Greece and a natural sun, sea and dance-lover (ok, wine too!). The last 2 years, I have been living in the magical land of Glastonbury/Avalon in the UK and it is here that my desire for creating this course was born. 

I am body positive, and welcome people of all walks of life, ages, shapes and sizes, racial, cultural and ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientations into the spaces I hold. 

 

I will be going through this journey with you.

I will be holding space for you, guiding you gently and supporting you with all my heart.

I will be sharing with you all that I know, while sitting right beside you in the circle, growing and learning with you.

In the circle, we are all equal. We are all together.  

 

 

Kind Words

 

Kind Words

“I cannot recommend Stella highly enough. The whole process has been a real blessing in my life.

 

I struggled with eating issues for several years, until I reached the point where I was fed up with myself, with my behaviour and with my life patterns. I told myself so many times that I was going to “sort this out on my own”, that “from tomorrow I will stop doing what I’m doing”, and so on. The truth is that without the help of a wonderful professional like Stella, I would have never truly closed that chapter of my life. Stella gave me the right tools to actually change my life and to overcome personal difficulties that I thought I was never going to be able to face. I would recommend working with Stella to everyone. Stella’s approach will help you rediscover yourself, understand yourself better and therefore improve your life.

At my lowest point, all I wanted was “to blossom”. I had this whole idea of getting rid of all those fears and conjectures that made me feel “never enough” and “trapped”; I wanted to flourish, I wanted to be proud of myself, to cherish the person I am.


Well, that’s what Stella helped me do: blossom! And I’ll be forever grateful for that!”

C.O.

“Working with Stella has helped change my life beyond recognition.

 

I’ve worked through blocks I didn’t know I had and feel so much freer than I believed possible. Stella’s warmth, caring and insight made is easy for me to truly trust her early in our work together and has allowed me to make significant shifts in a short time frame. She’s never pushy or demanding and is wholly focused on what moves you forward. She’s comfortable in being fluid in where the conversation leads but can also gently guide it back on track. I love her blend of old and new world.


If I could describe Stella
’s method I would say this: compassion, acceptance and wise in a way that feels fresh. I wasn’t sure how sessions on Skype would work but they have been every bit as powerful as having them in-person, which has allowed us to continue with our work, regardless of life circumstances; this is a huge benefit.


I absolutely recommend working with Stella, you have so much to gain.”

A.B.

 

“Working with Stella has changed my life. I strongly believe I couldn’t be in the place I’m in right now without her help.

 

In the beginning, I was embarrassed and terrified. I was hesitant about actually making the commitment, which would mean taking an irreversible step away from my old life. I had been struggling with food and body-image issues for many years and, after several failed attempts to get better, I finally accepted I couldn’t do it alone. I realised I needed professional help.


Working with Stella helped me develop my ability to just be; to be comfortable in my skin, my surroundings and with the challenges that come my way.
From this came the end to my eating struggles, improvement in the relationships in my life and a general happiness I hadn’t felt in years. The assignments Stella gave me and her feedback were extremely helpful. Learning to listen to my body and get out of my head is something I will use for the rest of my life.


I will be eternally grateful to Stella for her help and I would strongly urge anyone in a similar position to give her a chance to help them too!”

Frequently Asked Questions 

 

 

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions 

 

This all sounds great! What's the next step?

Wonderful! Please submit your application by clicking here, and I will be in touch with you within 24 hours. 

I can’t wait to connect with you!

What is your refund policy?

Once you sign up, the programme is non-refundable. When you make the decision to step in, you are committing to going the distance in and with the group. If you choose to register with a monthly plan, you are committing to making all payments. Please take some time to check in with yourself, in order to make a conscious decision about joining. 

How much time will I need to spend every week?

I would recommend spending 2-3 hours a week working with the material, in addition to the live teaching and coaching calls. Due to the experiential nature of the practices, you will see the best results if you dedicate some time every day, no matter how little, to integrating the material into your life -specific suggestions for doing so will be provided throughout the course. 

I am aware of how busy we all are, which is why, following every module of the programme, there will always be a break of 1 or sometimes 2 weeks (over the holidays) for integration and to catch up with the material.

What if I can't make all the calls live?

Life happens and it is expected that you will have to miss some calls, especially in a year-long programme! All calls will be recorded and available for you to watch at a later time. 

However, since a core part of this programme is community, it is important that you set the intention and commit to attending most of the calls, so that you can connect with the group in real-time, witness and be witnessed, and also receive coaching and guidance from me. 

Do I need to have movement experience or be fit to participate?

No movement experience or certain level of fitness is required. All the embodiment and movement practices that I share in the course are suggestions/invitations, and they can be adjusted to suit your unique body. Alternatives will be offered where possible and you will always be encouraged to respect your body’s needs and limitations, and do as much or as little as feels good. There is absolutely nothing you are going to miss out on by doing so -on the contrary, at the core of this programme is learning to listen to and honouring your body, and that’s exactly what you’ll be doing! 

What will I need?

You will need access to WiFi and a device to connect to the Internet from. There will be equipment and materials that I suggest or mention at different times, such as a yoga mat, blankets, drawing materials, etc. but none of it is necessary and you can always work with whatever you have available. 

Is this a group therapy programme?

This is a teaching/coaching programme -it is not psychotherapeutic in nature or a group therapy space. Knowledge and practices from Psychology form a core part of the programme, but they are shared on a self-help basis, and even though I am a trained psychotherapist, my role in this programme will be that of the facilitator, space holder, guide and coach. 

It is also important to understand that this programme is not designed to treat or diagnose any psychological disorders. If you have any mental health issues, please consult with your medical practitioner before joining.

Due to the nature of the work we will be doing, which is deep and affects many levels, this programme is not suitable for those with psychiatric disorders, severe depression or suicidal ideation/episodes. 

Who is this programme open to?

This programme is open to everyone who identifies as a woman.
