The Somatic Writer's community is a unique corner of the contemporary writing universe.
We are a radical, highly gifted community filled with magical people: mystics and healers, witches and artists, actors and visionaries, queer and nonbinary storytellers, autistics and neurodivergents.
We are devoted to centering stories of those who have been pushed to the margins by dominant, patriarchal and white supremacist culture. We are also committed to creating an ecology of deep, liberatory kindness.
As we rewrite and rewild our bodies back into our true nature, we also rewrite and rewild culture.
Who are you without toxic shame?
Who will you be as a published author?
How will you bring the magic back to this dying culture?
These are the kinds of questions we explore in Somatic Writing. We look forward to having you join our next free class, Ignite the Spirit of Your Book: Nine Steps to Write and Publish a Memoir or Nonfiction Book with Somatic Writing.
“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.”
- Melissa Kaplan
Author & Somatic Therapist
"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
“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.”
- Andrya Allen, 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."
- Diana Lightmoon, Psychotherapist & Writer
“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.”
- Eva DeVirgilis Actor, playwright, TED speaker
