Meet Raylen Williams
"Who am I now?"
When was the last time you asked yourself this question?… this is an invitation to p a u s e ... notice... and BE...
In each session (remote or in-person), you will have an opportunity to cultivate the sacred pause… turn in, tune in, and listen to the Wisdom e-merging within.
Whether you are experiencing physical/mental/emotional/spiritual dis-ease, stress/anxiety, trauma on all levels, energetic blockages/binds (ancestral/karmic), dis-harmony, seek clarity… my role is to meet you right where you are… here… now… and support the organic unfolding and blossoming of your own unique process yet stay out of the way. I offer a non-manipulative, collaborative approach grounded in Trust, gentle awareness, and intention to facilitate transformational change. Together, we (co)create a welcoming and nourishing environment to invite all aspects of your whole BEing to show up, get to know them, and dis-cover how each serves as a guide towards re-membering your True Essence. This quality of attention allows you to experience the body’s innate Intelligence to heal and return to HOMEostasis.
Exploring with me may resonate if you seek/aspire to...
- let go of patterns that no longer serve you or the Whole, nourish seeds of Potential, and bring Life to your True Purpose
- create change starting from within and rippling out
- live a life rooted in compassion, loving-kindness, sacredness, respect, and harmony towards yourSelf, others, and All that is
- cultivate Trust to support Flow in navigating shifts and cycles of Life with a sense of ease
- create the road map for your Soul Journey and follow your own inner compass
- discern and embody your Truth
My primary services that I offer currently are Phoenix Rising yoga therapy/life mentoring supported by training in a variety of wisdom practices including samatha meditation, yoga, reiki, martial arts, visionary craniosacral work, shamanic energy medicine (Four Winds), working with Nature and the elements. However, much of what I have learned comes from my own personal daily Sadhana (spiritual practice) and being in relationship with mySelf and others. I am also in the process of obtaining my massage therapy license and look forward to offering this to the community soon.
I am committed to serving as an embodiment of Love. My heartfelt work is holding space for Presence, connection to deeper knowing, and Union with Truth; and my heartfelt wish is for all to live from this place and share the gifts that we have to sustain the Vitality of our sacred world. It is my honor to explore infinite possibilities with you.
When I’m not at “work”, I enjoy seeing the Beauty and Magic in simple moment to moment experiences such as coddiwompling in Nature and snuggling with my partner and our precious fur babies Halo and Meatball.
What clients are saying…
“Raylen is a gifted practitioner. She has a great capacity for openness and for creating a space of acceptance with judgment. Our work together has been utterly transformational. I find myself grateful and humbled and finding a new life for myself. Increasingly, I can just be and can see myself with the same acceptance she shows me. I so look forward to my future interactions with this delightful and wonderful person.”
“Raylen has been a gentle guide in my journey inward. Her loving presence is deeply felt. My sessions with her are little miracles. I am left with awe and gratitude.”
“Where do I begin? I reached out to Raylen when I was dealing with a lot of stress in my life, and she introduced me to Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. I have seen a huge shift in myself from incorporating Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. During the session you begin by checking in with the body and mind and set an intention. Then she guides you through guided meditation and at the end you reflect on the practice. The guided meditation allows you to get deep in your body to get more information.
This work is not easy, but over time it prepares you to change and notice your feelings and your body’s response. The reflection is super helpful because it allows you to revisit what was meaningful, and it allows you to notice those items during the week. Incorporating the body for me was an amazing experience because it allowed me to feel rather than think. This Therapy helped me to get to know myself more, helped me with my daily practice, and helped me take the practice to real life situations.
There is something about Raylen that is super comforting. She always greets you with a smile and hug. She listens, holds space for you daily, and is always available if needed. Raylen has a calming voice, easy to listen to, and goes above and beyond to help others. She is passionate and always learning new things to help you get to the root causes. Raylen has a special gift and I am thankful for her love and support in our community.”
“Life can be full of chaos and confusion, so finding a place of peace and calm is invaluable. Raylen has provided me with that peace and continues to nurture my soul with exactly what it needs to heal. Her work has truly altered my core self and has led me on a new path of life and understanding. She is one of the most extraordinary people I know and her impact resonates with me daily. Thank you, Raylen, for filling my heart with love and gratitude. Please continue to share your gifts with all of humanity so that we may reflect the nature of our true selves, as beings filled with both light and love.”
“Healing is a sacred journey. If you want someone who respects that and can hold space for big change to occur then you will LOVE working with Raylen. I was able to experience first hand how powerful her medicine is. I am in gratitude for her love, connection to spirit, and to my highest calling. She is a very powerful healer for our times.”
“Raylen’s work is a rose opening in a parched desert. I look forward to nourishing myself again with her message of healing, which parts the heavy pain into silken strands that lead us to the truth, that bind us all – love.”
“Through Raylen’s practice, I’ve opened an unexpected door into intra-personal exploration that brings clarity, purpose, and intention into my daily life. Her perspective and methodology create a comfortable experience that nurtures self-growth, happiness, and compassion.”
“Before the pandemic began I had been working with Raylen in her very special space at Union of Body and Soul. Each session was different and beneficial to me on different levels.
During the guided meditation and deep breathing we began with each time, I was able to slow down, get centered, and return to myself. It was from that space I received the gifts Raylen offered through her bodywork, which were so helpful on my healing journey.
I was disappointed when a scheduled appointment with Raylen was cancelled because of the social distancing being implemented. When she offered to work through FaceTime or Zoom with me, I was happy to try it out.
I found I was able to relax and return to myself like I would when we were in the same room. As we began the session, Raylen’s presence and healing energy traveled over the miles and continued throughout the session, resulting in sensations in my body similar to when I had been lying on her table. I would recommend working with Raylen remotely, especially during this time of unique opportunity we have been given to take a pause and “reboot” ourselves and our world. I am looking forward to my next session - I feel like this is a time of rebirth for me and others, and I appreciate the support and guidance Raylen has to share."
"Raylen has a lovely, warm, open manner that is non-threatening. She's a true healer."
"Wonderful! I loved it. Am stunned by how much information was gathered by such (seemingly) simple work"
“I have been working with Raylen in my areas of need (e.g., balance and general postures). She started by asking in what areas I needed help. As we progressed, she adapted the program as she saw other areas that needed addressing (e.g., the proper way to stand from a sitting position). To be successful at what she does, one needs to be proficient at the following (not a complete list): listening, observation, adaptability and communication. She excels in all of these areas and more. My training has been progressive with Raylen adding exercises to assist my development. Raylen does an excellent job of ensuring that all parts of the body are in the correct position for the exercises. This is very important to get the most out of each one. I would highly recommend her in any of the areas of her expertise.”
