Program overview

Get out of your head.

Get into your body.

You’ve garnered insights about yourself through talk therapy. Now what? Mental understanding is not enough to create change. You need practice. Somawise Online is the experiential journey of reconnecting you with your body. You’ll move beyond ideas and concepts and learn how to listen to the body, care for it, and understand its subtle language.

A body free of tension and constriction allows for the mind to experience more peace, calm, and clarity. When we heal the body, the mind follows. The body is truly worthy of worship. This 12-week program will teach you how to become a student of your body. You’ll embody a new way of being and become an expert in your own life.

THe challenges and the path

The mind tells stories…

Rumination & Overthinking

When we react to our thoughts – and the harsh judgments toward ourselves – we make them real. Our mind creates our reality. We make our fears come true when we react to them as if they’re real. We don’t realize that we keep getting stuck because we are reacting to the same old fear-based thoughts. 

Believing Our Thoughts

Our minds are great at coming up with stories that easily hook us and take our attention away from where it needs to be, or pull us into self-destructive habits. The most common stories of the mind include judgments, worries and fears, and rules about how we should or shouldn’t be in the world.

Disconnection

Living in the mind means that we’re engaging with our endlessly-repeating stories about ourselves and the world. We’re living in the past or future, rather than being present to what is actually happening in front of us. Disconnected, the body is a foreign country, whose language we don’t understand. 

…the body speaks the Truth.

The greatest call to adventure is exploring the potential, possibilities, capabilities, nuances, subtleties, complexities, and paradoxical simplicity of the body. Your body. The answers to the big questions, challenges, and intentions that we seek are found within the framework of the body.

The body lets you know when lifestyle choices impact  wellbeing, reveals the source of the self-sabotaging reactions and behaviors preventing change, and shows us how to infuse peace into relationships. As you reconnect with the body, you’ll see the world with new eyes. 

Holistic Wellbeing

The body lets us know through internal signals and cues which aspects of our lifestyle are supporting or hindering the natural processes of health and healing. If we listen, we can learn how to give the body the food, movement, and rest that it needs to thrive.

Authentic Change

It’s through connecting with the body’s language of emotions and sensations – and learning how to be still, present, and non-reactive with them – that we begin to loosen our conditioned behaviors. Stillness is the catalyst for real, permanent change. 

Peaceful Relationships

When we stay connected to our body we learn how to differentiate between what is our ‘stuff’ and someone else’s. We learn how to show up and listen to others without the intrusion of our own emotional states and baggage being projected onto the other.

Somawise Online Testimonials

What People are Saying

Roxana M., Bucharest, Romania
“I am more connected to my body, I feel at home in it. Somawise helped me, through the practice of stillness, to feel good in my body. But the most important achievement I made was being able to see the triggers and to respond differently to them. I am very grateful I made this journey with Luke and his team. It changed my life. THANK YOU.”
Theresa M., NSW, Australia

“I found the program structure and content to be really helpful for me to create a space to reflect on the important aspects of life and build a better relationship with my body. Learning to cultivate the daily stillness practice was extremely helpful and helped me to return to me.  I definitely walk away with more joy and clarity for my future. Thank you.”

Anca S., Bucharest, Romania

“Somawise Online was a natural continuation on my journey towards myself. The programme structure made me to be rigorous in my practice and that helped me feel the language of my body. for the first time I could hear clearly my fears and needs when they spoke through body reactions. Sometimes the noise of my mind was blocking these subtle messages I was receiving or it was often translated into something else. The Stillness practice is what I gained from this course. Practicing Stillness disabled my noisy mind and from this silence I could choose how to respond.

I was able to do snorkeling for the first time in my life. I had major discomfort only at the idea of putting my face in contact with water. I was thrilled that my kids were so happy and they were spending lots of time with me showing me the underwater life. They were able to guide me and we swam together for hours. I also improved the relationships with my daughter and husband. I saw triggers as they happened and I paused…. and then… magic happened. I know this is not going to happen every time when I will be triggered, but if it has already happened a few times, there are chances that it will happen again. Thank you.”

Diane J., Queenstown, New Zealand

“I just wanted to say thank you for the last 12 weeks Somawise Online has given us. It was a very rewarding journey. I’m taking away life lessons that I can move forward with. It was a daunting prospect when I joined up knowing I would have to share at first, but such a gift to learn how important and therapeutic it is to share. Thank you for the guidance.”

Rob P., United Kingdom

“Before the Somawise course I was really struggling. Chronic pain, restless leg, insomnia, aching joints and various other incredibly frustrating and irritating issues had all reached a point where I literally hated being in my body at times; it was just too uncomfortable to bear.

Through Luke’s expert guidance and evidence-based practices I learned that much of my pain and irritation stemmed from shunning, burying and hiding from these uncomfortable experiences. And the more I resisted them and tried to overcome them, the worse they became. I have learned to make friends with my body, to listen deeply to it and to understand the messages it has been giving me. I now see the physical discomfort as my body’s wisdom, doing its utmost to guide me to health and happiness.

The results have been truly transformational with improvements in every area of my life – from improved sleep, dramatically reduced pain and restlessness to more patience and understanding in my relationships. Being transparent this isn’t the only work I’ve been doing on my road to healing, but I will always be grateful for Luke’s profound teaching and his wonderful Somawise course. In fact, I have recently enrolled for the second time as I gained so much from it – it is an absolute joy to have the opportunity to further embed and deepen these life-changing practices.”

Antoinette A., Virginia, USA

Clearly Somawise Online was meaningful and moving for me while trying to grow in my practice of stillness. I have so much to say and yet hopefully my request to continue my journey with the next Somawise Online group says it all.

Thank you so much for this experience and your encouragement to join the group and your ability to walk through this process with others. It was inspiring to watch so many others go to the depths that they did. And I was honored to have been present alongside those processes. 

For me, if you recall, this was a process I really did not want to address… or so I thought. For that, I am forever grateful. Peace, Toni

Kate LP., Auckland, New Zealand

“I admit I was hesitant to join a group format, but from the first session of Somawise Online I recognised inherent benefits. Hearing about other people’s experience has changed the way I view myself for having difficulties. The relationship I have with myself is moving towards less self blame, more self compassion. I am also beginning to understand other people in my life better.

Somawise Online taught me to listen to my body as a more reliable source of information than my thoughts. And Luke supports this process within a variety of everyday contexts. Most importantly, Luke is an extremely skilled and compassionate guide for this journey. He offers insightful readings and discussions. But the most valuable thing I experienced in the course was the kind, warm and non-judgmental space Luke held for the group.”

Lisa C., Perth, Australia

“Somawise Online was a game changer, and whilst challenging, the penny has dropped, and the work has only begun. I can’t thank you enough for this transformative journey. I see the world, and more importantly, myself, through an entirely new lense. It was a pleasure learning from everyone, and sharing stories, challenges, and wins along the way.”

Ana C., Bucharest, Romania

“I swear that last evening I was thinking how incredibly life-changing this course was and how much I miss seeing the facilitation team every other week. For me, the most notable progress started from the idea of sitting with pain and just observing my body. There were a lot of things I felt stuck in doing because of this fear of pain that now feel so easy!

And another thing that stayed with me is the warm small group I’m a part of, they are my life buddies now. So thank you, and I hope you are getting back what you gave to us!”
Carly F., Kansas, USA

“Somawise Online was an incredible experience. It empowered further growth through stillness, self-acceptance, and curiosity. The skills I learned and practiced will continue to be a part of my daily life going forward. I appreciated the layers that the group setting added to my experience and enjoyed the time together every session. Highly recommended!”

Joe D., Auckland, New Zealand

“The Somawise Online program helped me build the foundation I needed to get in touch with my authentic self and gain confidence in expressing myself more freely. The course added healthy and meaningful practices into my life which set the stage for real, authentic change, something I hadn’t experienced before. It really is a fun shared experience with a supportive group.”

Zak B., United Kingdom

“The best way to sum up the benefits I’ve experienced from Somawise Online is to highlight two recent shifts I’ve experienced. Yesterday, my partner and I were in a deep and positive conversation about our sex life, needs, desires etc. At one point she got triggered, I got triggered and a downward spiral was very possible but we caught it in the moment, slowed down, came into our bodies and reset our path. We ended up having a really healthy conversation which sowed the seeds for deep and profound connection last night. Everything could have pivoted in a completely different direction in that moment of triggering.

On the same day, I was having difficulty with my son as he was knackered. He started being cocky/defiant and instead of reacting with anger or stamping down my authority I got him to check his tone but let him know I was really listening and acknowledging how he felt. Everything softened and we’re having a beautiful morning together.

Thank you for, well, the great work you do. Success!

Himanshu, M., Chicago, USA

“Real Change Happens in the Body” – a section title from Dr. Luke Sniewski’s book entitled Somawise – Get out of Your Head. Get into Your Body. This book serves as the companion to the Somawise Online course.

If you think about it, these words are life-changing- how many times have we had an intention and yet failed to see it through? Think back to all those failed New Year resolutions. It turns out, we’re not weak as we’ve been telling ourselves, it’s just that for most of us the body isn’t there yet to support the big change we’re asking it to experience. And it won’t be there unless we learn to hear and speak its’ language. Somawise will help us do that!

This course has the potential to change your life- not by teaching you some new hacks, but by teaching you how to attune to your body’s wisdom daily. Somawise has profoundly benefited me in building an intentional life, and my deepest gratitude goes to its’ teacher and founder, Dr. Luke Sniewski.

This course is not more theory- it is a practice that Luke will ask you to develop through “homework”- and it’s the practice that will unleash the magic! So, if you decide to take the course – do the work asked of you. It is very clear guidance on building – step by step, an intentional life!”

Mick H., Sydney, Australia

“I came into Somawise Online with some reservations and fear because I had never really done any “Self” work before. Once I felt the safety and compassion within the group, I really looked forward to the sessions, and although it’s not an “I’ve done the course and I’m fixed” thing, Somawise Online has given me many amazing insights and tools that my partner and I are already reaping the rewards of, and I’m sure will start me on a journey that I am now very much looking forward to.”

Clara H., Vancouver, Canada
“I can unequivocally say Somawise has not only been a powerful element of healing and transformation, it has also provided so much meaning in my life. We are all different and vibe on different things, but I can say that after 23 years of my life dedicated 365 days a year to sport, even I found the discipline to do this work when I discovered Somawise.”
Su Y., Auckland, New Zealand

Somawise Online was stimulating, and the content related to so many aspects of life that many of us – myself included – subconsciously do not address but need to. It’s full of poignant and helpful life lessons, tools, and tips that everyone would benefit from learning and therefore I highly recommend this course. I wish I would have done it sooner!

Monica B., Bucharest, Romania

“I want to express immense gratitude for your guidance throughout this program. For me, this experience has shifted the way I engage with myself, tapping into intuition and rekindling forgotten wellsprings of self-healing and acceptance. There’s been a significant shift; the cycle of anxiety seems to have dissipated. I feel more at ease in my own skin, grounded, and notably more self-assured.

After the program ended, I continued with the daily meditations. Although the practice itself hasn’t become easier for me, it has undeniably deepened. I find myself overwhelmed with gratitude for my body – its astonishing resilience strikes me deeply. Its strength, fragility, beauty, and unspoken wisdom have truly humbled me.

I’m committed to continuing this practice and embracing the multifaceted layers and advantages of self-awareness.”

Melissa L., Bali, Indonesia

The Somawise Online journey has been a huge help in my life and it has been the perfect time in my life for it. The program – and book – was really helpful in challenging some of the beliefs about the mind and body, and gave me practical ways to access what the body communicating. The result was making better life choices – in physical, emotional and relational contexts.”

Brenda C., Wellington, New Zealand

The course has been gold and confirmed so much for me. My connection with myself has deepened. During the course, I re-ordered my home, updated my will, and started working with clients again after believing for too long that there were many others who do this better. I have come to accept my uniqueness and what I can share.

I feel as if I have found my place and a deeper sense of inner peace. I have more energy at 74 than I think I had when younger. I am eating in a more sensitive way, much more in touch with hunger and fullness in my body. Mostly I am very content. When discontent arises, I feel it in my body. I am willing to look and feel, but not always comfortable. I am also not sure if healing ever stops. I am also noticing I am not such a people pleaser anymore.

Thank you, thank you. I love the way you have woven a great life – and programme – that you are able to give to others in a beautiful, grounded, clear way.”

Jason S., Auckland, New Zealand

“I had accepted that my life was going to be overwhelming and difficult. Somawise Online helped me realize it doesn’t have to be that way. I’ve learned how to bring stillness into my life and even laugh a little when feelings of overwhelm appear. I’m in a better place because I know I can pass through life’s many storms with calm and ease.”

Todd C., NSW, Australia

“Coming into the Somawise Online Program I did not know what to expect at all. I felt very much like a climber sizing up their first ascent of a very personal mountain climbing experience. What the program offered me was support and guidance on my journey to the heights of self-connection, self-awareness, and self-compassion. Unexpectantly – and excitedly – the program highlighted to me the ability and need to stop and enjoy the view during my journey and to bask in the positivity of all the other brave and dynamic participants. I plan to continue to connect with Luke and the Somawise program as I continue to explore and learn about myself and my body”
