The Subtle Center
somatic wisdom | soulful mentorship | supportive guidance | intelligent care
I help other gifted and visionary souls create lives and professions of greater centeredness, connectedness, presence, and ease.My work moves beyond both mainstream coaching and traditional therapy in providing a compassionate, grounded, and nourishing model of support that does away with the myth that success requires struggle. Imagine supplying a seedling with the environment and nutrients it needs to thrive and you'll have a good feeling for what a restorative container is like.As a wholistic, soulful, and somatically-informed practice, the restorative model nurtures all aspects of ourselves, deepening our interoception— our felt sense of what is happening within and between us—by tending to the rhythms, symbols, and wisdom of the soma. This gentle and ongoing attunement to a more deeply sensed world improves grace and discernment in all areas of our lives, such that we might better shape the spaces and circumstances suitable for the uniqueness of our needs.Clients typically see rapid and occasionally surprising results, as the process necessarily involves being deeply heard and seen. Businesses are launched; creative projects completed; relocations occur— and yet all of it unfolds with ease.Creating a fulfilling life of clarity and restoration does not happen overnight; at the same time, the work is designed for you to deepen and master the fullness of your own process. Three to six months is generally sufficient to refine your needs and visions, anchor new ways of being, and ground a supportive inner and outer environment conducive to both your personal well-being and the expression of your gifts in the world..

BA Psychology & BA Philosophy, Amherst CollegeIt is such a pleasure to know you're reading this.My name is Siona. I'm a restorative coach and guide who holds space for a clearer and more compassionate way of being in the world: for warmth and emergence; for creativity and strength; for rest, and restoration, and ease. I founded The Subtle Center after integrating a profound personal awakening that transformed my life in 2014. Today it is my pleasure to support other gifted and visionary souls in creating fulfilling lives of greater spaciousness, satisfaction, and ease.I aspire to live gently on our planet, practicing both intentional minimalism and slow living, and divide my time between coastal California and the foothills of Colorado. Along with my work as a film producer, I love deep conversations, joyous laughter, long distance running, and the varied luxuries of silence. Meditation and art feed my soul.As both a practitioner of somatic mysticism and a dedicated advocate of intersectionality, pleasure activism, and collective liberation, it is my firm belief that we are all capable of achieving rich lives of deep satisfaction and genuine fulfillment— provided that we take the time to listen to and to trust the guidance of our breathing bodies, and that we are provided with a necessary sufficiency of support, understanding, and care.It is an honor and privilege to work with those who find me, and I look forward to learning more about the journey that has guided you this far..
