This intimately-curated course guides you from a chronic place of self-doubt and not enough-ness to one that is full of wonder, wisdom and wild personal freedom.
The Shifting Shame Embodied Journey is a unique program that skillfully incorporates every part of you, to let go of your old shame story and freely open into the life you’ve been longing to live, for as long as you can remember.
This journey could be just what you need, if…
- You’ve done everything right. Followed the rules, worked hard, stayed diligent, but you don’t feel free. In fact, no matter how hard you try, the doubt and insecurity creep in whenever they can. But you’ve never stopped craving a life of meaning and connection. One that opens before you into a fulfilling adventure.
- Until now, everyone else got your best. You’ve taken care of others, over-stretched your empathy, and done lots of personal work, but…it never feels like you’ve done enough. That nagging self-critic works overtime. Yet, you know there’s something more. You feel it in your depths, and you’re ready to do what it takes to let go of the old story, and reach a deep intimacy with yourself. A place that’s full of wisdom, trust and ease.
- Somehow you know that if you don’t stop this heartbreaking story of shame, the one that makes you shrink and stay small, your gifts and talents will never reach the world. And wow, is that painful. You have a burning desire to not waste any more time, and you’re ready to dare, risk and express all of yourself.
If the cells in your body just woke up and said yes, or you felt the knowing ache of longing in your heart, then join me on this journey.
You’ll be welcomed into a supportive space that’s full of intelligence, embodied wisdom and practical tools. Step by step, I’ll guide you to move beyond old stories of shame and emerge into a place full of compassion, connectedness and trust; you’ll embody a readiness to live your life exactly as you wish.
This embodied journey is both personal and collective. You’ll:
- Be welcomed into a community of inspiring women, who’ve all chosen to take this transformational journey with you.
- Learn to listen to and trust your body’s intelligence, discovering how it always guides you to a place of healing, expansion and integrity.
- Ground yourself in reality and choose how or whether to respond, when shame and self-doubt are triggered. These reactive moments will lose their power in your life.
- Discover how naturally and easefully you can move, express and be yourself in relationship with others.
- Heal the deep wound of shame, the place in your body and life where rejection, humiliation and abandonment shaped your story.
- Nourish your deep capacity and desire for life.
- Embody your deepest longings, those you left behind or buried under shame and self-doubt, until they flow out of you with freedom and ease. It won’t be possible to deny them any longer.
- Feel the strength and courage to consistently and freely move toward what you want in life.
Somatic Sexologist and Embodiment Teacher
“Marcela’s work is POWERFUL! It’s one thing to recognise the shame we hold, cognitively. It’s another thing completely to address it directly in the body.
Marcela supports you to feel where shame lives in your body, and how to create space around it and free yourself of the stuckness, numbing and guilt there – which of course opens us up to pleasure, heart openness and deeper intimacy with ourselves, our loved ones and the world.
Through her work, I’ve been able to cultivate a relationship with my body in ways I didn’t know were possible, and opened to whole new worlds of body awareness that enrich my life every day.
She lives what she teaches – Marcela’s work comes from her own deep lived experience, rather than some regurgitated, new age blah-blah. Plus, she’s just an absolute delight to be around!”
My journey with shame:
I didn’t know shame and fear were at the core of my insecurities, until menopause, a break up and professional disillusionment conspired to lay me bare. I felt I’d lost control of my life, and my deepest insecurities came rushing out. I’m too old. I’m not worthy. I’m not successful. Life’s passed me by.
What I’d been practicing until then wasn’t working, and I was trying so damn hard. I knew I had to find another way. And it was then, from a place of deep despair, that I chose to turn around, look at my shame, and say, “Ok, let’s do this.”
When I finally dove in, I found the key to releasing layers upon layers of doubt, humiliation and loneliness. I touched the core of my shame story, and my body showed me the way out. It was only then, after 20 years of working with the body, that I learned to trust its guidance. To trust that my body always wanted to feel free. This was the magic key.
Today, whenever I’m stuck, hurting or ready to put myself down, I go to my body. I feel what’s stuck and what’s underneath the stuckness. I move with what I feel, and I always land in a place with more options, freedom and trust.
I want every woman I encounter to trust themselves, too. To move in the world knowing you have a place in it, you belong, and your gifts are wanted.
This course was born from this deep desire.

Here’s what women are saying…
“If you are looking for an approach that will redefine how you approach life and all the thoughts you have that hold you back, I truly can’t recommend this work enough. Marcela is an incredible facilitator and the practices and tools you will gain are so simple yet profoundly deep. After a couple of years ‘talking’ things through with friends and professionals alike, getting more in my body was the tipping point for me to really take all this theory and start embodying it in practice. When people say ‘do the work’ well…this is it; THE WORK.”
“I’ve spent over a decade exploring embodiment, movement and all things getting-more-in-touch-with-who-I-am, and honesty, I think Marcela is the most skilled and intuitive facilitator I’ve come across. She exquisitely provides paradigm-shifting practices that offer freedom from trauma, a profound understanding of our internal landscape, and a transformative opening to otherwise unseen choices, about how we can show up in the world.,
In the embodiment industry there’s a BIG difference between a facilitator/practitioner who gets you moving and guides you to a big cathartic release (that often feels good in the moment, but doesn’t ultimately change anything at a deeper level), and someone who has mastered the art of embodiment and understands the subtly of the body, nervous system, habit patterns, triggers, and can empower you to unravel yourself and stay open, regardless of what life brings.”
“I have all the theory, as a facilitator and coach who supports people to achieve their goals, but somehow couldn’t find a way to translate that into freedom and joy in my own life…until I participated in the Shifting Shame course.
Marcela guided the group intuitively to move and release what blocks us, so that the flow of possibility courses through us instead of the cul de sacs of pain, regret and shame.
She has a beautiful empathy with each participant, and holds the group with both a deep wisdom and a lightness, so we all felt our unique strength.
It’s not a course where you learn in a technical way – it’s deeper than that. It’s a guided visit to your beautiful imperfect self, supporting you as you start on the path to a place of joy and acceptance.
I couldn’t recommend this course more highly.”
“This work truly feels like magic.
Marcela’s taught me how to tap into what I truly want in life and look at what’s stopping me (often shame, crossed boundaries or just history). She creates a safe space for me to explore and move and learn to trust myself.
I’ve learned that my body always has the answer. It knows what it needs, I just need to tap in.
I do this embodiment work because it gives me freedom. I can actually change my experience by physically feeling places in my body that are stuck in history and old, rote emotions. I see how many choices are available to me and find new ways to approach old situations.”
“Converting a skilled and mature body-based therapy practice into an online offering requires more than a camera and microphone. Marcela’s not only able to bring her gifted face-to-face acuity as a practitioner to the online experience, she also has incredible capacity for observation through the medium, which she combines with a kinesthetic sensitivity that helps her students find the truth for themselves.
She does this with a compassionate heart, underpinned by her own evolution, paced with precise timing that unfolds in a digestible way. Marcela has a gentle way of sparking the wisdom of the body in everyone she works with.”
Irene Lo Bue
“Marcela’s the body whisperer! The number of times she’s known what was going on in my body and what I required at exactly the right time in her workshops, has astounded me. Working with Marcela has helped me reconnect with my body and has reminded me of how good it feels to be IN it. Her work has shown me that there are many stories held within the body and that when we take the time to listen, we can heal.
I am so grateful to have met her as what I have learnt through this amazing teacher, has been invaluable for me on a personal and professional level.”

All your questions and doubts answered (FAQ)
Part of my shame is with my body, and it feels like a block to joining.
Do I have to be able to dance to join this group?
I’m scared to join a group with my shame.
We address this early on in the course, and it’ll feel like a giant exhale, as it’s revealed.
It’s entirely up to you how much you wish to open up in the group. And you’ll get individual support from me in the way of a session when you wish to go deeper or feel stuck. I’ll also be available via email and the FB group. I know the places we hide, and how painful that ends up being. I make sure you won’t stay stuck or isolated.
What’s the weekly time commitment?
But here’s the thing…if you’re too busy, don’t join this course. And I say that with tons of love and respect for your choice. I want to be sure the journey doesn’t become another place for you to FEEL as though you’ve failed.
I’ve created this course in a way that will constantly empower you to go further. SO, if you’ve really had it with the deep ache of not feeling good enough, and are 100% ready to change this, this is the course for you.
Four months seems like a long time
Yes, it’s a commitment. But here’s the thing…we’ve honed our shame habits over decades, so for the shift to be real and not superficial, we need to take our time, open to it, absorb and digest.
I’ve created this course for you to come out strong, clear and trusting. And I don’t want you to feel like you’ve failed. This feeling is such a potent contributor to shame. Over the course of these 4 months, you’ll get to take your time, not only to un do the old shame story, but to remember who you are and what you want.
Emotional work often overwhelms me. How do you support this?
What If I don’t manage? I’m afraid of failing.
The weekly structure strengthens you and builds trust in yourself. So when old fears come creeping in, you’ll have the tools to release them.
What do I need for my home practice?
Refunds will be considered on a case-by- case basis.
You’ll have access to this course material for 3 years.
Refunds will be considered on a case-by- case basis. If after participating in the first month of weekly sessions and practices, you recognize it’s not for you, we can discuss a partial refund then.
Is this work trauma-informed?
This course is NOT a substitute for psychotherapy or medical treatment. We’ll work through the body, specifically with shame and not-enoughness and healing the way our past still has a hold on our lives today. I’m not trained in psychotherapy nor to give any sort of diagnosis.
If you have a medical condition and are unsure if this course is right for you, please consult with the relevant medical practitioners.
Is this course based on any psychological or spiritual theory?
Is this course relevant for all women?
The course is open to women of any sexual orientation.
And if you’ve experienced a partial or full hysterectomy this course is still very relevant, as we access the energy that this area of the body holds.

As women, we’ve been trying so hard to make our lives feel like they’re ours. To live in a way that matters. So why does it feel like we’re doing something wrong when we’re trying so hard?
That’s the wound of shame. The chronic sense that you’re not enough. And it’s way past time to heal this.
But not only that…I don’t just want you to feel better about yourself, I want you to thrive. I’ve taught hundreds of women all over the world, of every shape, age, size, social status, profession. As I’d watch the layers of shame come off, each woman would reveal herself in the most natural way. They didn’t have to try to get it right. They simply had to let go of the old story and be, and their essence poured out of them.
Is it really that easy? Is it just letting go and relaxing into who you are?
Well…yes, and no.
Yes, because you’re learning something your body already knows how to do. From before your first breath, your body was growing and learning. That learning and un-learning never has to stop. Your body always seeks freedom.
No, because it doesn’t just happen. You have to choose it. You have to want to be free. You have to be fed up with the lie of the old story, and go to the deeper feeling that’s been longing for freedom for as long you as can remember. And then you choose every day to let go of the old story more.
And as you open yourself to whatever arises, fear, grief, shame, desire, rage, fury, you’ll be learning that your body, you, can handle it. Your body is the most remarkable container for your soul.
And you’ll be guided and supported every step of the way with conversations, practices, and individual support. And the collective intention will hold and carry us all during this journey together.
A love letter to you
I was once asked in an interview what’s the opposite of shame. I stumbled around to come up with an answer, but I couldn’t. It’s not binary. There’s no opposite. There’s YOU. The you who’s been yearning to break free, grow and express herself, exactly as she wants. The you who’s been longing to dance intimately with life, and even if she trips and falls, she’s ready to dust herself off and start dancing again.
The you who wants, hungers, laughs, enjoys, delights. The you who is curious, devilish, compassionate, carefree. The you who says what she wants, asks for what she needs, and brings her heart to the world. The you who can rest in stillness and play like a child. The you who is wise.
And your body’s the key.
It’s where you experienced the hurts and humiliations of your past. It’s where you shaped yourself today, coping with life the best you could. And it’s exactly where you’ll find your way out, melting the grip of the old stories and getting back those parts of yourself you left behind.
Shame shrank our zest for life. It gave us restrictive rules to live by and made us believe stories that don’t merit one more day or one more breath.
Your life is longing for you. And It’s time for your unique touch to reach the world.
I hope you’ll join me on this magical, moving journey.
