Today on the podcast, Shelby Leigh!

Shelby has 15 years professional experience supporting folks with trauma and a lifetime of healing the Complex PTSD that she carries, both ignited by a fascination for what truly grows embodied resilience, connection, and thriving.

In her years as a licensed somatic psychotherapist, a certified coach, meditation teacher, and gentle breathwork facilitator, Shelby has become deeply interested in identifying how to create spaces that are truly welcoming, inclusive, and aware so that people who have experienced trauma feel safe enough to be able to receive the support they seek.

This work has culminated in her online course “Creating Safer Space” which offers accessible, professionally transformative trauma awareness to any facilitators (meditation teachers, yoga teachers, coaches, therapists, leadership trainers, dance teachers, healers, shamans, wellness providers, and beyond) so that they feel unshakable and integrated in offering their gifts and services to the people who need them the most.

Shelby is in awe of the capability of her students when supported with kind awareness, who have ranged from teens on mindfulness retreats through Inward Bound Mindfulness Education to hundreds of adult students in their certification process as Sex, Love & Relationship coaches studying tantra and becoming mindful of their powerful impact within the therapeutic relationship through trauma awareness.

From her current home in Bend OR, Shelby enjoys the creative balance between growing her own resilience through a lot of time near a river in the sunshine, teaching trauma awareness workshops, offering retreats, facilitating consultation groups, and seeing individual clients in person and online worldwide.
