Jessica Jean Muir, LMT, RYT, Founder and CEO
Hi, my name is Jessica Jean Muir and I’m the founder and CEO of Shakti Soul Collective. I am a self-love warrior, shadow work alchemist, bringer of light and outspoken womxns empowerment activist. I am an intuitive and professionally educated body worker, group facilitator, movement teacher and holistic coach based in Denver, Colorado. Here’s a taste of what I’m all about:
Originally from New York, I discovered my love of body-based therapy in 2014 during a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Three Sisters Yoga in Manhattan. After that certification I went on to teach yoga to people of varying demographics and skill levels in New York, Colorado and Costa Rica. I am relentlessly passionate about the study of holistic healing through somatics.
After completing my Bachelor's degree in New York, I went on to graduate from the Colorado School of Healing arts in June of 2017 as a Licensed Massage Therapist. During the 700 hour program at CSHA, I studied modalities such as Swedish, Deep-tissue, Neuromuscular and Sports massage. I also completed a specialty certification in pre-natal massage to honor my love and admiration of the divine feminine.
In March of 2017 I completed The Prison Yoga Project Training with James Fox where I studied trauma-informed yoga therapy and learned to work with incarcerated, institutionalized and heavily stressed populations. I also completed training in Trauma Touch Therapy at Colorado School of Healing Arts. In June 2017 I received my level I and II Reiki certification to facilitate healing of the energetic body. I received an additional 200-hour Yoga Teaching certification in the specialty of Hot and Hot Power Fusion Yoga through Core Power Yoga in Boulder, Colorado in December of 2017. I had been sitting in womxns circles for 3 years and after completing deep self-study on the art of circle facilitation I finally stepped into my current role as lead facilitator at Shakti Soul Collective. I am continually learning and honing my facilitation skills through experience, study and checking in with my elders.
I have been in somatic counseling for 4 years which has deeply impacted not only my own personal growth but also influences how I work with clients. I have studied ecstatic dance with the power house Malaika Darville (https://www.inmyelements.com/aboutmalaika) and tantra with the deeply divine duo Homa and Mukto (http://homaandmukto.com) and both of these practices define my work. I have also studied at the school of life and also pull from my own experience and deep knowledge I have acquired over the years. I am constantly learning, expanding and deepening my knowledge to be the most effective and transformative catalyst for my community.

-As a natural extrovert, I have always had the gift of being a connector. And, through my own intuitive flow and intentional study, I have become gifted at the art of connection.
-I am deeply gifted at creating and holding sacred space where people feel seen, safe and held.
-I have the gift of being truly comfortable in the shadow. This means, I am able to hold your hand as you work through and with your shadow self. I can be your anchor while you are excavating and healing some of your deepest traumas.
-I am a communicator. I express myself best with words. Both spoken and written, I have the gift of inspiring others with my insight.
My mission is to:
I really, really care about humans. And for that reason I really, really care about my mission. In fact, it is my entire life and my reason for being on this planet. My mission is to be the light in a sometimes overhwlemingly dark world. To lead as many femme identifying humans as possible back into their power. To create a new paradigm where we can be deeper connection with ourselves and eachother free of societal brainwashing and structures that keep us armored and isolated. I believe that humans were put on this earth to reach their highest potential. In my mind, that potential looks like: radical compassion for ourselves and each other, full embodiment, heart centered connection, living your dharma (soul purpose) and feeling free on a holistic levell. My mission is to be a guide in your journey towards your highest potential in this lifetime. I also love teaching people the practice of alchemy and helping them to turn their shadow selves into their greatest strengths. All of the work I do centers around creating more safe space, embodiment and unity in this world. Compassion, empathy and authenticity are some of the ways I strive to connect with others.

Brittany Haywood, Workshop Facilitator
Hello sweet sisters! I am Brittany, and I am a queer femme witch, astrologer and depth coach. I am a devotee of the Divine Feminine, and I am in deep relationship with Mother Moon and Mother Earth. I have walked in the shadows and bathed in the light, and have been a present witness to the shedding of my wounded past. My relationship with the lunar cycles, the zodiac seasons and the elements of the Earth has led to the creation of my signature offering, Magic by the Moon. My calling in this lifetime is to support other femme identifying individuals on their path of awakening and returning home to their Highest Selves. The training I have received in Mindfulness-based Transpersonal Counseling and Buddhist Psychology allows me to guide womxn in healing and transforming their deepest wounds. Within this work of alchemy, we are able to witness the rebirth of one’s true identity and desired reality. It is you that I welcome and invite to step through your initiation portal, and I hope to sit with you soon.
Maria Nichols, Executive Assistant,
Right Hand Woman
My name is Maria Rae Nichols. I am your resident pagan witch and the right hand womxn of Shakti Soul Collective. My magical awakening began in 2017. Since then, I am constantly called to spaces where the divine feminine is most abundant. Magic has helped me discover what autonomy and true freedom look like for me. Community has inspired me to pursue work that moves me. I am here to walk with other womxn through our personal and collective journeys- of healing, self-love, and aligning with our highest and brightest purpose.
I’m passionate about teaching! It’s always felt natural for me to assume the role of teacher in some form or another. I’m an insatiably curious admirer of knowledge and information. My appreciation for learning is boundless. As a teacher, I believe I am serving at my highest whenever I am also learning. One of my most sacred values is leading by example.
I am a cultivator of human connection. As an intuitive person, I’m able to meet people in their energy almost immediately. It’s effortless for me to hold space for others. Because of this, deep soul connections happen frequently for me. I cherish the fact that people have a tendency to really open themselves up to me.
