Mark Anthony Haviland: Soulmatic therapy


First and foremost...this is not a massage.  This is Soulmatic Therapy...Soul+Somatic+Therapy.  An in-depth collaborative excavation of your body-mind-spirit which includes your emotional and psychological traumas that are stored in your body.  Through rigorously honest dialogue, breath work and attuned deep tissue bodywork we create an experience that can change your life.

We can unearth your purpose and fine tune your energy to be able to take your life into your own hands.  To manifest your dharmic path and truly be of service for the greater good.

Most people spend a lot of energy and time avoiding their pain (which causes more pain), not to mention all the ways we are in denial and delusional about how truly out of control we really are.  We have inherited a plethora of unconscious behaviors and traumas from our families and society.  It isn't our fault and it is our responsibility to do the work our parents couldn't do.  To wake up and evolve.  

I specialize with people in crisis and/or transitions.  This work is not for the light hearted.  As Joseph Campbell said, "the dark cave you do not want to enter holds the treasure you seek."  This work is just that...we will go into that dark cave you have been avoiding for years and bring to light what has been sabotaging you this whole time.  Are you ready?  If you are...COME!  Watch the video below and see if it is time.

Anatomy of emotion workshops


Anatomy of emotion workshops


This workshop is a powerful, hands-on, interactive exploration of the vast universe of emotions within each and every person. Feelings buried alive never die. When feelings aren't felt and honored they get stuck in the body. This stuck-ness can turn into aches and pains and then can manifest into serious illness. In this workshop, we will learn how to address and process these feelings to avoid the progression towards disease.  I have been teaching these workshops for several years all over the world.  Most recently I went on a 7 month cross country healing tour teaching and doing private bodywork sessions.  I was hosted by yoga studios and individuals across America to educate, inspire and activate people in the self care arts.  Below are a few things that are included in the workshop:

*Dynamic lecture and group exploration of The Chinese Five Element Theory, and how it bridges the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual dimensions of being human.

*Interactive exercises to deepen and broaden one’s bodily knowledge and wisdom.

*Meridian---Muscle---Emotion connections and spiritual qualities embedded within these connections.

*Self-Care Techniques to include Stretching, Qi Gong and Massage.

*Meeting the Shadow - an introspective investigation and inquiry into the parts of us that got left behind and techniques that can turn this unintegrated piece into a very powerful ally.

*Transformational Bodywork Demonstrations – Mark will choose volunteers on which to perform his work, allowing workshop participants to witness firsthand what actually is trapped in our tissues.  There will be about 3 or 4 demos of this powerful work to assist the participants in seeing what actually is trapped in the tissues as well as what is lurking underneath the floorboards of one's daily consciousness. This will be the most dynamic part of the workshop and not to be missed.

All information will be presented in an easy and digestible fashion with humor and spontaneous relevance. Anyone is welcome to attend. No prior experience is needed in any field, all you need is to have a body.

ONE*ZERO*EIGHT*MALA

Treavor was taught the art of making prayer mala by a very dear friend while on a 7-month road-trip around the U.S. in 2016. From the moment I entered the bead shop, he was hooked. Once he started tying knots, the practice grabbed his soul and has not let go. He loves to make one-of-a-kind, customized malas with semi-precious stone and crystal beads. Each crystal has its own vibration, energies and healing properties. If you are looking for a unique tool for your wellness practice and want to collaborate on creating one together send me a direct message or email one.zero.eight.malas@gmail.com
The tradition of prayer beads began in Ancient India around the 8th century B.C.E. The seers needed a tool to help them focus and calm their mind for the meditative state. They created japa mala (japa meaning “repetition” and mala meaning “garland”) consisting of 108 beads to help them keep track when repeating mantras. The use of these beads spread throughout the continent, peoples and religions alike. When the Roman Empire began trading with India, the word japa was misunderstood by the Romans as the Latin word jap, meaning “rose”. When the beads came to be used in Rome, they were known as rosarium and eventually in English, rosary. In ancient Vedic culture 108 is believed to be the number of existence. There are 108 sacred texts, 108 sacred sites around India, 108 marma points of the body and 108 lines of energy that converge to form the Heart Chakra. There are 9 planets and 12 astrological houses, 9x12=108. The list goes on… Wearing your mala during meditation, or simply having it near you, on your altar can be a focus point for your practice. It can help clear the distractions before meditation.

The Soul Whisperer Project's Cross country tour's 2015-16


Watch Documentary teaser video here:

In the spring of 2015 Mark launched The Soul Whisperer Project a 6 week, 7 city cross country healing tour filming a documentary about the somatic based trauma therapy called Transformational Bodywork.  Go to the Blog to see the vignettes and snippets from the journey thus far. January 2016 we hit the road again. This time we were out on the road for 7 months, 17 cities in North America, over 17,000 miles, 8 Anatomy of Emotion Workshops (173 participants), over 160 private bodywork sessions and 30 states.  It was a doozy of a journey and such an amazing adventure.  

We did some incredible filming up on my teacher/mentor Dr. Fred Mitouer's property and school in Mendocino, CA.  We have only just begun the manifestation and realization of this film.  Post production is the longest and most expensive part of the whole process.  We are very excited to go out and educate, uplift and work with all these different cities and studios.  Here is the list of the cities and studios that hosted us this year (2016).  So much gratitude goes out to all the hosts and participants of the 2015/2016 Soul Whisperer Tours.  We will be posting the videos as we edit and polish them.  Here is a list of the cites and hosting yoga studios for this years epic journey.  The SWP continues with workshops and retreats around the world.  Stay tuned:
