Every culture is only as vital as its dominant myths.
It’s time to write new ones.
Your Soul Has Been Longing to Write a Memoir
The Somatic Memoir Lab is here to help you finally write it.
SOMATIC WRITING MEMOIR LAB METHODOLOGY
Go from struggling, blocked writer, to successful, published author.
Liberate Your Voice, Write Your Book, & Publish to Untether Your Power.
I see you.
You’re a global change agent.
A leader for these complex times.
In your soul (even if it’s a secret identity) you’re also a poet, a mystic, a storyteller.
Everything that made you an outsider in the dying culture has prepared you to be a leader in this portal into a new world.
At Somatic Writing, we work with people who know that writing and publishing their memoir is part of their soul path and life purpose.
Our unique methodology accesses and activates aspects of ourselves that have been familially and culturally exiled. Our process supports the liberation of your voice and the untethering of your power.
Somatic Writing programs bring you into a liminal space where you retrieve unspoken stories and marginalized parts of self. This is a consciousness first process that empowers and inspires you to write a book that integrates your past and infuses you with the confidence to not only write, but live, from an expanded identity.
Whatever your journey has been so far, you’re ready to write from a place of deeper embodied aliveness and your own conscious beingness. if you’re going to embark upon the enormous life task of writing and publishing a book, you only want to do it if the process and outcome can meet your standards.
There are loads of “author programs” that will help you in the quest of simply “finishing your book.”
This is not one of them.
This is a space of radical openness, creativity, improvisation and intimacy.
This is a space to connect with other depth based creatives.
If you’re excited about the prospect of liberating your voice and untethering your power to write and publish a story to shift personal and collective narratives on a global scale, I offer you my hand.
“I have been coached and trained by over 50 writers across the world, some with huge international recognition, and not one has ever opened me to myself the way Tanya does. Tanya is a powerful guide through the chaotic and often painful journey of writing and discovery.
If you've decided to write directly toward the truth no matter where it goes and you've found it challenging, lonely or scary... this is the answer. If you are a writer or aspiring to be, and you want a safe and powerful container to find your voice in writing, I can't recommend Tanya enough.”
Founder of Vox Verba & Writer
Tanya has a gift and that gift is to help you find the deepest truth, and then she holds your feet to the fire until you tell it to the best of your ability.
Being in the group is so supportive -- taking the isolation out of being a writer, and also out of the past I’m writing about in which I felt so alone. It's helping me find the voice I lost as a child, or probably more accurately never had or developed, and giving it the space to develop now.”
Psychotherapist & Writer
“Tanya has been the ancient midwife of my story. She cradled me, wept with me, sang me through my grief, coaxed my words, and gently guided me to the courage to birth my voice.
She once said to me, ‘I can’t promise you safety here.’ In its place, she supported me in the ultimate radical soul liberation - the telling of my story.”

"So many unexpected gains from my work with Somatic Writing – so much to thank you for. The steady support all year, encouragement, view-from-without, and inspiration, all made writing my book finally possible. I have learned so much about myself, have become a better writer, and have embraced parts of myself I did not even see until I started working with you, and practicing somatic writing with others online. I am eternally grateful!"
Dr. Stacey Kerr
"The Somatic Writing Lab with Tanya has been an amazing experience on many levels. I don’t think I fully comprehended what I was getting into when I signed up – other than the distant possibility of a first draft of my memoir. But for me this class has been so much more. No matter what the focus of your story, it is woven from all aspects of your life. Likewise, the illumination and liberation that Tanya provides has carried over well beyond the writing of my memoir. If you yearn to really tap into your creativity and explore the deepest depths of your possibilities, consider this class. If you are ready to take a “leap of faith” – then I suggest you consider jumping into this! I recommend it without hesitation!"

“Tanya Taylor Rubinstein is the Story Shaman. Let us not use this word lightly. What she does, better than anyone I’ve met, is weave your calling, God’s purpose, and the mundane trivialities of life into a vibrant tapestry, called Story. These stories heal, inspire and ignite in ways you never imagined. When you receive the call to be with her, listen.”
Author & Editor
“Tanya gave us the space to open up and believe that we all have an important story to tell. She gave us permission to be our truest, messiest, and most magnificent selve and then helped us get it all written down. Tanya also has a knack for attracting high-frequency, extraordinarily successful people from all walks of life - from doctors to therapists to well known actors on TV- and it has been a gift of a lifetime to become part of a community of writers with all of them.”
