Event description


Are you living in alignment with what your Soul is asking of you?

In the chaotic, distraction-filled age we live in, living wisely requires calling in forces greater than ourselves, forces that have the power to awaken our imagination beyond the day-to-day. And one of those forces is Soul. In awakening to our Soul’s unique desires, we can develop the clarity to understand what is ours to do and experience in this world. It is not easy to live from Soul because of the depth it demands, but it certainly opens up greater aliveness.

In this spirit, we are excited to announce that we'll be leading a new 1 day experiential workshop designed to support you in learning to live from Soul First.

What will participants come away with?

  • The start of a relationship with Soul / your Inner Leader

  • A deeper connection to your priorities at the level of Soul

  • Practices to live from Soul

  • Tools to fully experience emotion so we can begin to embrace the wisdom of our feelings

What will the experience be like?

  • Morning and afternoon embodiment sessions

  • Learning a new way to connect to your soul and purpose that’s unique to you

  • Intimate dialogue with participants who are similarly asking these questions

  • Opportunity to digest the group experience in nature

What's the flow for the day?

  • 8:45 -- Breakfast -- Say "Good Morning" to your fellow participants over coffee / tea and a light breakfast

  • 9-10 -- Intro to Soul work + Opening Circle

  • 10-11 -- Embodiment: Learning to Connect with authentic Self somatically + emotionally

  • 11-12 -- Meditation: Inner Leader Visualization -- Learning to consciously connect with our highest wisdom

  • 12-1 -- Catered lunch

  • 1-2 -- Guided Inquiry & Nature Walk: Learning to stay connected to self in the midst of every day distractions

  • 2-3 -- Inner Leader dialogue -- Learning to ask our highest Self for authentic guidance

  • 3-4 -- Embodiment: Accessing the wisdom of our emotions

What have past participants said about this workshop?

"The Learning to Live from the Soul workshop was tremendously powerful for me to attend. The greatness of this work doesn't just come from the facilitators or their program, but from deep within your own being. It is the truest form of 'education' in the sense that it educes, or draws out, the information from your own emotions, body and soul to better understand yourself in perhaps one of the most honest and deepest ways possible. This isn't a cut and dry program, it is entirely organic and the entire environment is created by the facilitators, the participants and your own experiences and intentions. I left here not just discovering myself, but feeling deeply connected to a community of other people looking for real answers in their life. I left with feelings of honesty, earnestness, compassion, fulfillment, appreciation and eternal gratitude. I recommend this course for anyone who's looking to do the real work to find honest happiness." - Nick Bryant, 2019 participant

"I had a powerful experience connecting with my soul in this workshop. Being able to connect with this part of me was possible because of the nurturing and safe space that Melissa and Steve created." - M., 2018 participant

"This potent workshop is not about manifesting material things (money, work, love), but really connecting to your soul through awareness of your emotions and body. This is the work, the foundation, and where healing and clarity are found." - J., 2018 participant

"I was initially resistant to going, but I'm glad that I showed up: I left with a new visceral connection to my Soul, why I am where I am, and tools to keep me connected to my authentic Self." - K., 2019 participant

"Melissa and Steve together will masterfully help you access the wisdom, power, beauty and purpose within you. They walk their talk." - L., 2018 participant

"What do I really want to be? ...do? ...give? ...experience? ...offer? ...receive in this life? If you grapple with these questions and want to do so sincrerely in a community with others, this workshop will push you in pursuit of your soul's deepest truth." - M., 2019 participant

"This workshop is a ground breaking embodiment experience that will shift and deepen your relationship to your inner voice and soul." - N., 2019 participant

Who are the facilitators?

Steve Seto is an intuitive coach committed to his spiritual path since 2001. The crisis from his divorce at that time was the catalyst to a deep commitment to understand the root causes of his suffering. He draws wisdom from chi gung, martial arts, meditation and emotional work.

Over the years, he has created a map of human experience rooted in a Soul First approach. He excels at helping others embody new ways of being, articulating the essence of their soul’s desires and intentions, and thus empowering others to live from their highest potential.

Melissa Lau is a leadership coach whose spiritual journey started in earnest after her father’s unexpected death catalyzed a deep period of exploration about her soul’s true desires while at the pinnacle of her Harvard MBA’s dream of a successful career in Silicon Valley.

She draws wisdom from yoga, the healing power of sacred spaces, and group systems philosophy. Her superpowers are asking beautiful questions, bringing clarity where there was formerly confusion, and weaving together insights across unexpected disciplines.
