Spiral to Wholeness
I work primarily with women who wish to connect more deeply to their bodies wisdom so they can become more aligned to their own truth.
Like so many women, I grew up in a culture that focused on outward success; that to be more, we had to do more. Give more. Sacrifice your own needs to the greater good.
In childhood, I received these messages both directly and indirectly. My mother worked full-time as a social worker. She cared deeply about the people she served while often neglecting her own mental and physical health, and even quality time with her children.
As a child and a young adult, I struggled with body image, self-esteem, and forming authentic relationships. I was a compulsive eater and watched way too much TV. I put all of my energy into being a “good student,” and I thought I would end up in academia because I lacked the social skills to have a career in the public sphere.
But I knew deep down that it was not the life I wanted.
Studying biology gave me a greater appreciation for the earth. My desire to save the environment led me to connect deeply to the earth, and when I began to see that my own body and the earth body were one, I could begin to work toward healing both.
As I dug deep in the soil, learning how to grow my own food—literally eating the fruits of my labor—I saw my body as something sacred and beautiful.
Entering into the world of earth activism and then bodywork, I began to notice similar patterns of giving and martyrdom, in myself and those around me. Under the guise of “saving the world,” we put others’ needs before our own for the sake of the greater good. I gave of myself and my skills so readily. It worked…until it didn’t. It took me quite a while to connect all the dots.
I began to realize that if I truly wanted to make a difference in the world, it had to begin from within.
Thus began my deeper dive into my own spiraling healing journey:
connecting with my own divine feminine, coming face-to-face with my shadows in order to integrate them into the whole, tuning into nature’s rhythmic cycles that were echoed within my own body; participating in healing dance, breathwork, coming back to the earth for continual grounding and support, and remembering the healing power of my own beautiful voice.
I have reclaimed the meaning of my name, Sara Oakley, as princess of the oak grove. I see myself as a woman who has become deeply rooted and has grown into a mighty oak tree, and now it is my mission to become a sacred witness to others who are ready to take root and grow into their own fullness.
Healing of the planet, one woman at a time. through starting from within.
“Sara carries a nurturing essence. When she asks me what I’m there for, her voice becomes tender. She listens deeply...
Bring your authentic self, and let Sara nourish you in the space she creates. You can trust that she will hold your intentions for healing, rejuvenation, and deep nourishment as she works.”
Imagine how you feel after an amazing healing massage.
Now imagine knowing how to recreate that feeling in your life EVERY DAY, through tuning in to the wisdom of your own body and realizing your innate wholeness.
