We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

~ Mother Teresa

Fellow Travelers on the Path,
In this time of collective, environmental, and global trauma, which inevitably also unearths our own individual traumas and wounds, I want to offer this Free audio and PDF download of The Yoga & Psyche Method Toolbox, which includes the very best practices I have found for processing trauma safely in the body, and regulating and and soothing our nervous systems. Drawing from depth psychology, Somatic Experiencing™, trauma healing methods, yoga and meditative practices, and neuroscience, these practices can be done solo, in pairs, or as a support to psychotherapy, yoga, and healing sessions. Read more about the practices in the PDF and/or explore them right here.

I am with you in Alliance, Fortitude, and Embodied Love,

Mariana Caplan

I am convinced that spiritual work alone does not address many of our deepest psychological knots and traumas, nor does it provide tools to address our wounds in relationship that block us from fulfilling our deepest longings, dreams, and spiritual possibilities.

Consultation Services

The focus of my current services as a Consultant is on project-based efforts that are aimed at solutions to global issues. In this acute time of coronavirus, I am adding additional consultation time to groups, institutions, and leaders who need support in terms of building inner and outer resources, learning to process trauma in their own bodies. I am particularly interested in philanthropic pursuits where my unique skillsets can be useful. All my services are available through video platforms.

I bring over 20 years of research, teaching, and the publication of nine books, that are translated into over a dozen languages on topics related to intersection of psychology, spirituality, yoga, world religions, and contemporary spiritual traditions. My clinical work as a psychotherapist included consulting, mediating, and providing psychological services to spiritual and religious teachers/leaders, communities, and emergencies, as well as creating preventative psychological health programs for spiritual and religious groups. I have mediated, advised, and supported healing in many large spiritual scandals. Specializing in trauma and somatics (body-centered) psychology, I supported individuals, couples, and families, and initiated school yoga programs for high-risk youth.

People are regularly amazed to discover that psychological self-exploration is not a task to dread, but a joy to uncover.
