Santa Barbara Certified Hakomi Practitioner & Life Coach – Maya Shaw Gale, M.A.
I am a BCC Board Certified Life Coach and Certified Hakomi Practitioner with a Master’s degree in Holistic Psychology and over 35 years in the body/mind/spirit wellness field, including many years as a somatic psychotherapist and Trainer of Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy. I specialize in working with people who are going through a significant life transition or are feeling a need to ‘reinvent” their lives to be more deeply satisfying and grounded in creativity, spirituality and meaningful purpose.
Drawing from my extensive experience in somatic and neuropsychology, energy medicine, embodied mindfulness and indigenous wisdom practices, I guide my clients through an “inner vision quest” of intuitive inquiry and mindful self-reflection. Then, step-by-step, I help them to navigate through heart-centered processes of empowerment and graceful transformation to a life of joyful fulfillment.
Guided by Taoist and Buddhist principles of compassionate presence, non-force and a belief in the interconnectedness of all life, my approach is both gentle and supportive as well as powerfully focused and effective. I see each individual’s (or couple’s) path of growth and evolution in the context of the greater collective/culture, and particularly with regard to the current evolution of consciousness and paradigm shift that is underway on the planet.
Contact me for a free half-hour consultation (by phone, Skype or in person) to learn more about the programs I offer and to see if we are a match to work together.

From Old Story to New Story:
A Women’s Deep Dive – Writing Retreat Renewal
Saturday 12/2, 10am – 5pm
@ a Private home on Mountain Dr., SB
Tired of spinning your same old stories? Are you ready to…
– Reinvent yourself with fresh metaphors and unexpected language?
– Re-invigorate your past as the launch pad for an exciting new future?
– Take the “narrative lead” & “re-story” yourself with a new script?
Join me and together we will create a warm, receptive, non-critical atmosphere where the emergence of each woman’s unique form of expression will be encouraged and welcomed. Brief experiential warm-ups with movement and meditation will help us to write from a more embodied, mindful and awake place
