Electric Heart
A Workshop about returning home

With Fiona Soma & Jeremy de Tolly

ABOUT THE RETREAT

Join Jeremy de Tolly and Fiona Soma for a three-day adventure that combines mantra and voice with leading-edge body-based practices – an invitation towards a life of presence, groundedness, communication, compassion, trust, peace and joy.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE EXPERIENCE

You will be safely guided through various crafted creative practices that move us out of flight flight or freeze towards a more relaxed nervous system and a healthier communication system. We play with tone, song, language, colour, frequency and movement to achieve this and provide “take-home” tools with which to explore further on your own.

HOW WAS ELECTRIC HEART FOUNDED?

Jeremy and Fiona met 16 years ago and subsequently became trainers of TRE® (Tension/Trauma Release Exercises). They continued their fascination with the tremor mechanism process – not just for themselves, but also introducing it to an NGO that supports homeless people in Cape Town, South Africa, a profound 18-month project that offered them a large dose of humility and compassion. Subsequently, they have both cultivated international careers that are grounded, productive and bring them immense joy and satisfaction. In bringing Electric Heart to the world, they have curated an experience that they hope will bring you “Home” – the place that feels yummy, delicious, safe and nurturing. From here, we can move towards true and healthy expression, towards a life aligned, centred and in integrity. When we unblock our voice, we can communicate in “truth”; when we align to our body’s unique frequency, we can simply be, in “truth”.

WHO SHOULD BOOK ON ELECTRIC HEART

Anyone wanting to increase their enjoyment of life, who is stressed, uncomfortable with their voice or feels “not good enough” when they sing; anyone who feels unable to communicate effectively in work, family, relationships, authority and/or the bedroom; anyone wanting to explore greater freedom in self expression; anyone in sales, consulting, facilitating or the arts; anyone who wants to be more boundaried and less bullied; anyone who wants to have healthier communication on all levels – with themselves, their loved ones and life itself… in short, most of us!

FEEDBACK FROM PLAYING AND PROCESSING WITH JEREMY AND FIONA

“I found freedom & acceptance in my voice…finally”
“I felt safe to be playful and open with my body”

“It was weird but wonderful to be so out of my mind, but so deeply in my body

“it felt playful to reconnect to places I haven’t” been to for 40 years”

“I gained trust in this home in which I live”

“I want to hear my voice, and I like it more and more”

“My dear Fiona and Jeremy! To have an Electric Heart is to have an open heart. And in order to have an open heart you sometimes need to meet people like the two of you, who creates a safe space and guides you towards opening up in order to embrace all the beautiful, and sometimes painful things the heart, body and mind contains. Little did I know that walking into the workshop in Koh Phangan would make such a huge difference in my life and open up my heart to its full extent. The Heart Sutra and TRE shall forever be with me, and so will you. I listen to the heart sutra every day and as I just signed up for a TRE module 1 training in Sweden by the end of the summer. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have given me. I can not wait to meet the both of you again. All my love, always. T”

ABOUT FIONA

Fiona Soma has played and worked with many forms of somatics with a focus on sexuality and relationships. She encourages us to explore safe methods of movement and play as a way of better understanding ourselves in relation to the world. Through curiosity, we are led through simple yet healing processes that bring balance and alignment to all our bodily systems.  More recently Fiona’s fascination with the vagus nerve has led her on exploration and investigation of sound, frequency and vibration, and their profound restorative effects on communication, expression, listening, facial expression and the ability to socially engage in a healthy manner.

Fiona is a TRE® (Tension/Trauma Release Exercises) Global Certification Trainer and offers trainings in Thailand, Romania, Israel, Portugal and South Africa. She practices and teaches Taoist energy techniques and meditations and created ”Nectar – Sexual Wisdom & Alchemy”,a practical, safe and accessible program that practices the transformation of Jing Chi (sexual energy) for health and lifestyle benefits.

ABOUT JEREMY

Jeremy de Tolly has played and worked with many genres and forms of sound – rock band “The Dirty Skirts”, Afrobeat electronica project “Original Swimming Party”, the ambient “Piano Nocturnes”, corporate music production, to a deepening of consciousness with Mantra. Most recently he has re-ignited his fascination with “how music moves us” – not just on the dance floor, but also on an internal visceral level in its ability to shift our state of being. A passion for Jeremy is the joy people find when they finally come home to their voice.

He has won a number of South African music awards, and his seminal ambient piano album Piano Noctures Vol 1  is used on healing workshops worldwide.

He’s spent time being both a rock star and a healer, and well knows the perils and joys of both. These days he strives to walk the middle path.

Jeremy has trained with a number of luminaries of the consciousness community, including Dr David Berceli, Loch Kelly, Jai Uttal, Eckhart Tolle, Dora Dias, Isaac Shapiro and Bill Petrie.
