Title and License: Nature & Adventure Guide, Yoga teacher, Ecowellness practitioner, Anthropology and Psychology student, Pilgrim.
Bio: I am a Nature & adventure guide, organising trips to the Wild in different parts of the World (Nepal, Mongolia, India, …). I spend over 100 days in Nature in a year. I study Veda and Ayurveda and I teach yoga. I lived with a few primal people (Gurungs, Khasi, Mishmis, Xalx, Hazabe,…) and I learnt about primitive techniques and medicinal plants. The Gurungs gave me the nickname “Ban Manche” which means “Forest-Man” (or “human friend of the Forest Spirit””). My anthropology thesis was about holy springs in a shamanic/Buddhist tradition.
I received Level One Ecotherapy Certificate from the EarthBody Institute in 2020.
Services Summary :

"I know what it is like to abandon oneself. And I also know what it looks like to listen to your authentic inner voice and deepest longings to create the life you desire. If you are wanting to feel a sense of deeper belonging to yourself, your calling, and to wild nature, let's talk. When I listen, I listen with all my ears—opening my pores up to absorb the information I am receiving, not just from words, but the body, symbols, and energies. My intention is to listen deeply with my mind, heart, soul, & body to honor the psyche's journey towards wholeness. Contact me for a FREE 30 minute discovery call to see if it is a good fit."

Title and License: LCSW
Bio: Sasha Wright, LCSW is a somatic psychotherapist and clinical supervisor serving the diverse communities of the East Bay. Sasha is also a guide in leading embodied earth-based ritual, and offers consultation to clinicians and group leaders to incorporate ritual into their healing work.

Sasha’s orientation to stewarding wellbeing and wholeness centers a person’s relationship with their own body, communities, and the earth. She weaves somatic, mindfulness, and nature-based modalities into her practice to build bridges of connection within and beyond the human world. She is trained in Hakomi and Ecotherapy. Her work is informed by a neurobiological understanding of trauma and a social justice framework.

Sasha’s aim as a therapist, supervisor, and facilitator is to affirm people in their innate reservoir of inner resources and reveal their own gifts and solutions. Facilitating authentic experiences of belonging in one’s body, mind, and larger ecosystem draws forth true personhood, and creates the conditions for positive change.
