The Body Temple is a brave and loving coaching community for feminine bodies to deeply transform your connection to your body from the inside out -- so that you can develop the inner confidence, magnetism, and energy to show up as your best and most authentic self.
What would it feel like to finally go from...
Feeling disconnected from your body and stuck in negative self talk… to developing emotional regulation skills and deep self-awareness that will inspire you to feel compassion, appreciation, and love for your body no matter what it looks like.
Resenting your partner for not sharing the load in cooking, maintaining your home, or child rearing… to knowing your deeper needs and clearly communicating your desires in a way that also strengthens your connection and partnership.
Feeling the weight of being unseen and unappreciated by everyone around you… to owning an embodied confidence in yourself and ownership of your value and worth.
Feeling anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed by the chaos of life, like you’re constantly grasping for a sense of control… to discovering what simple daily rituals will nourish you, and creating space for this routine in your life.
Having a tumultuous relationship with your body’s appearance – feeling shame when you look at yourself in photos, having a hyper sense of control around food/exercise, experiencing chronic pain, or avoiding intimacy out of fear of body rejection… to feeling confident at any size and celebrating all that your body is capable of.
Feeling like the faucet to your libido and desire for intimacy has been turned off…to cultivating an embodied sense of your sensual energy that fuels your energy and sparks your radiance, so that you can create more pleasure and intimacy with yourself AND your partner.
Heart-centered mothers, caregivers, and empaths ready to let go of feeling like your needs and desires come last.
Let go of the lifetime (and often generational) cycle of people pleasing and putting your needs last. Create new structures and rituals for connecting to your body, yourself, and your intimate relationships in a more deep and intentional way.
It's time to design your life to honor YOUR needs, too. To embrace simple self-care strategies, emotional regulation skills, and embodiment practices that bring your essence and radiance alive.
Making space for more joy, peace, and flow in the rhythms of your day.
Letting your body be a source of wisdom, modeling conscious self care practices for the next generation
And shifting your relationship with your body, and yourself from the inside out embracing self love and confidence.
I know the guilt that comes from not enjoying your role in parenting or caregiving, especially when part of you wanted the life you have. But you never imagined you would lose so much of yourself in the process.
Over the course of 12 months you will re-design your life from
the inside out:
You will discover how to feel more at peace with your body and allow your inner clarity to guide you towards the freedom that comes from unapologetically owning and accepting yourself.
You’ll be guided in gently shedding the layers of social, familial, or religious conditioning that are keeping you from the desires and intimacy you crave.
And you’ll finally create the self care rituals that bring you into harmony with your natural feminine cycles, forge an embodied connection to your inner truth, establish boundaries that activate safety and ease in your relationships, and develop the confidence to stay grounded in your desires every day regardless of what other people think.
Just for a moment I want you to let your imagination soar
sit back, take a breath, feel your body supported in the chair beneath you and lets explore what's possible
Imagine waking up knowing exactly where you are at in your feminine energy cycle and knowing exactly what daily rituals and self care tools support you. Not needing to push, strain, or restrict, but honoring where your feminine body is at, even when you wake up a little moody or with low energy.
Imagine when life is stressful and triggering, your child is having a meltdown, your partner forgot to take out the trash…again, or you are yet running late to work, having the emotional regulation skills to shift your energy in the moment and show up calmly and with presence, responding to life instead of reacting to it.
Imagine feeling appreciation and love toward yourself AND your body when you look in the mirror, knowing your body is your best ally and source of deep wisdom. (even with all the changes that come with bearing children and aging)
Imagine feeling connected to your desires, wants, and needs (no more wondering why you’re resenting your spouse or telling yourself you’re “just overreacting”) AND having the skills and self-trust to clearly and confidently communicate your needs in a heart-centered way that builds intimacy.
Imagine getting your groove back, sparking your inner radiance, your sensual energy that drives you to WANT to make the time and space for intimacy and play with your partner, because you know it’s essential in filling your cup.
Are you ready to allow life to feel good, and not just on the surface, but deep within?
To feel like you finally have your groove back- sparking your inner radiance that has been dimmed by layers of social, religious, and familial conditioning?
And to finally understand how to live in alignment with the magic of your feminine bodies cyclical nature without the
layers of shame, guilt, and labels?
Embracing embodied self care rituals that actually nourish you and aren't another thing "to do".
And have your friends saying "Wow- something BIG must have changed in your life! " Because they see just how much you are glowing from the inside out.
"I've always had a hard time locating sensation in my body or identifying emotions but I just trusted the process and didn't question myself and this program has been very healing. I can now interrupt lifelong patterns of reactions and be more mindful about how I show up. My body is a source of wisdom and healing, not my enemy. I've been able to be more compassionate with my daughter and husband as I recognize that what is triggering me is not them being bad or wrong somehow, but rather a conditioned response that doesn't serve me.
Tara creates such a warm and safe space, is knowledgeable and research based. Also the community has been amazing. Even though the relationships are virtual, I've felt genuine connection to everyone. People have been incredibly honest and vulnerable and I've learned so much from the shared experiences that we have as humans.
I'm so thankful for this work."

"My favorite part (so far) of The Body Temple has been learning about the ways that all the systems in our bodies interact. And I was surprised how impactful and relevant the group coaching calls are, week after week. Everything that is shared relates to my life and experience in some way so the coaching and takeaways always hit home.
Being in community has made me feel less alone. Thanks to The Body Temple, I have gained the awareness and motivation to try and make positive change in my life, especially when it comes to my relationship with my body.
Tara is such a gentle but powerful guide. She comes from a place of love and support, seeing you as a whole person. Her keen awareness for the ways that the mind and body are connected was essential for me in healing from my traumatic birth"
This is for you if...
You are a mother, caregiver, healer, or empath and recognize you are coming face to face with old stress and trauma patterns that are keeping you from fully showing up in your life.
You’ve struggled with your relationship and connection to your body, your body image, and your self expression.
You are empowered through knowing how and why your body works the way it does. But also want the accountability and support to put your knowledge into action.
You struggle to make yourself and your needs a priority. You know your stress management, diet, exercise, and general lifestyle could use a serious refresh.
You struggle with feeling exhausted, you are carrying so much of the load, you resent people around you (including your parter and kids) and know there has to be another way to approach life feeling more supported and joyful.
You are spending loads of energy every day staying stuck in your mind, thoughts and stories of guilt, anxiety, and shame.
You feel disconnected from your body, perhaps due to past sexual or birth trauma. This can show up in just not caring about your body, or feeling a sense of hyper control around food and exercise.
You've tried a ton of traditional healing approaching including talk therapy to address anxiety and depression but you just aren't getting where you want.
You are craving intentional community and connection with other like minded women/feminine bodies.
This is not for you if...
You were not born with female anatomy. This course is a safe space for women and non-binary folks who are still experiencing (or have experienced) female hormone cycles. I don't have up to date education on working with testosterone supplementation outside of that used for menopause.
You will be offended by languaging around feminine/masculine energy. While I am working to update my teachings to be more inclusive, I do also honor the sacred energetic teachings and how these energies show up in the body,
You have had significant trauma that is unprocessed, if this is you and you are interested in working with Dr. Tara please reach out to her about 1:1 services, or adding 1:1 to this group container.
You are not able to show up with with a non-judgemental attitude toward others, especially other feminine bodies.
You are not willing to step into responsibility and self agency. Part of this work is self directed, while there is accountability built in, no one will be hand holding you or making sure you show up to participate.
You are not willing to explore the darker more hidden aspects of self. Everything we do in this container is done so with love and gentleness, however, if you have resistance to looking within, or are looking for someone to do the work for you, this is not the container for you.
About Your Guide
I’m Dr. Tara Morrison, Pelvic Embodiment Coach and Somatic Pelvic Care provider. For the past 12 years, as a traditionally trained Doctor of Physical Therapy, I’ve walked alongside wombyn in healing from pelvic pain, pain with intimacy, birth trauma, pregnancy related pain, and postpartum body changes from a mind-body perspective. Early in my career, I realized there was wayyy more to healing the physical body then just exercises and hands on work.
The Body Temple is a culmination of what I have studied, experienced, and embodied on my journey and spiritual path through womanhood and motherhood.
My approach weaves evidence based practices and modern neuroscience tools with body based spirituality practices, and a large dose of intuition.
I know this work is deeply vulnerable, and I’m here to guide you into finding safety in your body and in this work. While also bringing lightness, brevity, and laughter to it all. I believe slow medicine is often the best medicine. And that if we gently peel back all the layers passed down from society, religion, and family belief systems we can reconnect to a more authentic, true, and connected version of ourselves.
What happens after I apply and enroll?Applying for The Body Temple requires you to fill out an application form and book a call with Tara to determine which membership tier is best for you. You can join the the self paced Temple of Reverence and The Temple of The Moon workshop memebership at anytime. Doors to the higher level membership tiers open two times a year. After you have enrolled in The Body Temple you will be added to our private community on Mighty Networks where the courses and events are hosted. I If you are adding on 1:1 Somatic Pelvic Care sessions with Tara, you will schedule those on your application call or at enrollment.
Is this an adjunct for therapy or other medical treatment?No. I am not a licensed mental health therapist and although I hold a license as a physical therapist I am in no way diagnosing or treating you for any mental or physical health condition. Most participants find that this work deepens the work they are doing with their healthcare team including mental health therapy. And often is the piece they were missing in their mental health regimine. As coach I love to partner with your current therapist, doctor, acupuncturist and other members of your medical team. In fact, I believe a team based approach is essential.
How much time do I realistically need to commit to complete this program?The virtual course is self paced with each lesson around 45-60 minutes long. There will be on average one lesson per week. The modules are all unlocked at purchase but it's recommended you start at the beginning and move through the modules as paced per the group schedule. You can move as quickly or slowly as you wish, but I have intentionally paced the modules with integration periods in to keep you on a consistent forward path. Each week there will be a 90 minute group coaching call and 2x per month there will be another movement/breath/or embodiment workshop 60-90 min in length. The embodiment practices enhance the work but can also be completed when you have time. Most tof he transformative work happens in the group coaching calls. I recommend 30 minutes per day for tuning into your body (15 min) and reflections (15min), My goal is to teach you skills you can implement in your day to day without needing to block off a huge chunk of time. It is also recommended to begin integrating daily movement of at least 15 minutes, this can be as simple as a walk or short yoga flow.
I’m not sure I can always make the live group call, will it be recorded?The group coaching calls will be recorded and replays will be available. These group coaching calls are where the magic happens, the women that have completed this in the past have absolutely loved the community aspect and the accountability that comes with these sessions. That being said, members who are doing the course at their own pace and watching the replays report getting high value out of the coaching sessions, and also feel connected to the group due to the vulnerability and openness in the coaching containers despite not being present for the calls.
Why should I invest in this program, can’t my doctor help me with this?Most western based doctors tend toward fixing the symptoms. Giving you a pill, shot, or some other quick fix to remedy your problem. Unless you are working with another integrative or functional medicine based provider you may not be getting guidance around the role of nutrition, stress, trauma, and hormones. This program is aimed at getting to the ROOT of what is going on. Diet is one piece, but the layers of stress and trauma are what is really driving your dis-ease. We unpack all of this in this program.
Can't I just learn this in a book?This work is culmination of my 13 years of professional work studying physical and energetic healing, lifestyle and functional medicine, polyvagal theory, trauma, mind-body based healing strategies, neuroplasticity, yogic and pilates philosophy and exercises systems. And sprinkled with my lifetime journey spiritual journey, intuitive development, love for dance and movement, and my personal healing experiences. I have not come across one single book that addresses all of these elements in one. AND...the whole purpose of The Body Temple is to get you out of using just your head (or brain) and connect to the power, wisdom, and healing available IN your body. While also giving your brain just enough education to empower you forward.
Is it ok if my kids are present during the live sessions, I don’t have child care assistance?Yes! Of course. I get that being a parent comes with challenges when embarking on your healing journey. Kiddos and babies are always welcome to be on your hip, chest/breast, or playing next to you.
Can I work 1:1 with Tara?YES- you can sign up for the VIP package which includes one 1:1 session per month.
What are the payment options?You can either pay in full upfront or split payment into 6 or 12 monthly payments depending on the membership tier. There are no refunds for this course, please be clear in your commitment to yourself and your ability to participate in this work. If you would like to chat with Tara around other payment plans or financing options you can do so during your application call.
