Phoenix Waters is an intimacy facilitator and embodiment coach with the foundation of her work focused on unraveling and reprogramming the Mother Wound. Through the practices of Ritual, Somatic Inquiry and Inner Alchemy, she guides people on an exploration of how exquisite life can be when we give ourselves permission to be as human as possible. An embracer of all that makes us whole; the good, bad, ugly, freaky, ecstatic, shameful and weird, she celebrates the practice of cultivating vulnerability as a means of building connection with others. An avid explorer of the shadow realms, she believes that it is vital for us as humans to make peace with the aspects of ourselves we often deny, if we are ever to become fully healthy, integrated beings. Additionally, having an embodied understanding of our needs, wants and desires, while being able to communicate them clearly and with kindness, is one of the most powerful paths of healing available to us. One of Phoenix’s deepest passions is in building intimate, safe community. She is the founder and curator of The Temple of Artemis in Grass Valley,a sacred community space with events focused on connection, intimacy, communication and ancestral healing.
