Diva Rising Women's Circle
with Michelle Hogan


The experience of witnessing and embodying our authentic self in the context of a safe and compassionate circle of women is profoundly healing and transformative. Being held by sisters, deeply heard, and seen without judgment, and without projection is one of the most precious and nourishing gifts I have ever received.

Allow me to share this gift with you. Now is the time. Together let's explore all aspects of being a woman in 2019. 

Please join Integrative Somatic Psychotherapist Michelle Hogan MFT for Diva Rising Women's Circle... while using the power of embodied expression through Deep Listening, Conscious Communication, and Authentic Movement we dissolve shame, and uncover what has been cast into shadow. 

All women, all colors and feminine identified humans are welcome, and invited to join.

When: Tuesdays 12:45-2:15

On-going circle
Exchange $35 per session, or $180 for six sessions.

Please call or email Michelle Hogan to register

Yoga Nidra


October 23; November 20; December 18

Yoga Nidra is the art of conscious relaxation. You will learn techniques which will allow you to reach new states of conscious awareness with acute perception of both your physical and subtle body. As you practice these techniques you will feel the flow of prana move through physical, emotional, and energetic blockages. The end result is the healing of the body and mind and the expansion of consciousness.


The sessions are done laying down or sitting and are appropriate for EVERYONE, regardless of physical limitations. 


Yoga Nidra allows us to heal deeply held patterns of energy in our bodies, manifest health and wellness, and consciously create whatever it is that we want to create for ourselves in this lifetime! 

Experience the peace and joy that you are. Nourish yourself in the many additional benefits of Classical Yoga Nidra:

• Improves functioning of the immune system
