A little about Me

Hi, I’m Georgina Laiya

I’m an independent spirit, a passionate and relentless dreamer, a playful soul, an incessant creator and unconditional lover.

I feel a strong and compassionate warrior in me (may be my Celtic roots) who stands for brotherhood and sisterhood, integrity and community. A wild woman, a temple priestess, a mother (though with no children), a medicine woman, and a committed custodian of sacred living with natures cycles.

I love to be a champion for you, supporting you in revealing and restoring into everyday life, the natural intelligence, aliveness and sacredness of your body, your innate wisdom and your unique gifts.

I wish for you (and everyone) to feel and know deeply that you belong, you matter and by your presence, you contribute something valuable. This is an embodied and intimate way of living. 

Deep within, you have all the resources you need

I believe that your wild nature holds both a pure luminous essence and an intense blazing fire. Maybe these parts have been dampened down or ignored for a while, if they were not always safe or welcome.

The potential of your free, wild and wise nature, however, is always there, ready to be reclaimed.

Your power lies in diving deep into both your dreams AND your wounds, your light AND your dark.

It’s by combining your unique gifts AND your unique life experiences that your creative life force can be most potent and make most impact.

Channel all that power through your heart, and we can co-create a more conscious, responsible, and compassionate world.

If you're ready to go there, I'm by your side.

I’m passionate about birthing a new, more balanced and caring way of living. One that empowers each one of us to show up and relax deeply in love for ourselves and each other.

I wish for every being to feel completely safe, welcome, loved and honored.

This calls for deep listening, respect, gentle and loving-kindness, collaboration, vulnerable and radical honesty, and responsibility.

Personal healing and empowerment is one essential step on this path. And we need to go beyond this, to interdependence, where we each take responsibility to do the work for the collective.

I’m here to bring us together, so that we can remember and learn, through embodied experiences, what it is to love and be loved, to listen and be heard, to respect and be respected.

Georgina's Bio

Today, a holistic healing massage therapist and sacred bodyworker, soul whisperer, embodiment and intimacy coach, Georgina's path has led her to various wisdom teachers all over the world, studying many forms of yoga and bodywork, Heart iQ Circle Coaching, Core and Celtic Shamanism, Shamanic Tantra, Tantric Buddhism, and Somatic healing. Every path has involved personal and collective healing and awakening through the body's innate wisdom. 

With 2 university degrees, studying the relationship between humans and nature, she had a 15 year career in international biodiversity conservation and human wellness, that put her in touch with some of the most rural communities and magnificent places on the planet. Wild nature has always been her connection to the Sacred, to Source, Soul and Spirit. She spent years guiding white water rafting trips, mountain biking and trekking.  

Her personal spiritual practice seeks to honour the sacred feminine and divine masculine inside and out, in the ordinary and extraordinary of every day. She incorporates conscious relating, intimacy and sacred sexuality, meditation, yoga, and bodywork, immersion in nature and her cycles, conscious food and natural health, being in service, mobilising community, and running a business that stands for loving-kindness.

Georgina was born and raised in Ireland, at the sacred Hill of Tara, and after many years living and working around the world, she now lives in Switzerland for over 20 years. Based in Rolle by Lake Geneva, she accompanies women and men through sacred bodywork, supported by psycho-somatic, emotional and spiritual guidance. She has been running her own workshops, retreats and circles since 2011, and contributing to international teams since 2017. She is creatress of the "HeArt of Connection" and "Living Sacred Womanhood" programmes and community, "Rest to Rise", "Wild and Wise Woman Awakening", and "Conscious Connecting" programmes amongst others.
