ABOUT SOFIA SAMAUMA
“After many years of observing and listening to the environment around and the others, my extreme sensibility and empathy have made me aware of my personal gifts to help, soothe, enlighten, reflect, empower and transform my own and other people's lives.
During my life journey, the latest years of profound reconnection with nature have deeply guided me into the studies of the self, the collective consciousness, and the diverse healing experiences that all of us can accomplish through inner listening and nature reconnection. Samauma is the queen of the Amazonian forest, the sacred tree, with more than 2000 years old, worshiped as the mother of Humanity. The Natives consider it "The Mother" of all trees. Its roots, called Sapobemba, are used in communication through the forest. Samauma Roots brings back the wisdom of the ancient forest to connect us with the higher self.

I help to catalyse powerful changes for individuals, situations, schools, businesses, courts, etc. I provide coaching and support to any system or individual stuck on a personal, energetic or soul level.
My life experiences, my own healing path, and my commitment to my personal professional growth have allowed me to develop an exceptional eye for reading environments, relationships, individuals, physical bodies and energetic fields.
I support people in finding their inner strength, attracting happiness, success, love, health, and harmony into their lives.

What are Family or Systemic Constellations?
Family Constellations is a therapeutic approach that aims to bring to light what is hidden in family and interpersonal relationships. It is also called Systemic Constellations as not only families can be analysed, but other relationships systems, such as friends, co-workers, companies, or relationships to objects and subjects such as food, money, love, rejection, etc.
This method highlights the deep connection we have with our family in one or more generations. The Constellation brings to light the bonds of love and loyalty that may be entangled in our destinies.
Constellations make visible and emotionally noticeable, the roots of our issues and help us to positively transform them and our realities.
What to expect in a session
The constellations session could be done in a group, individually or online. You will first present what issue needs to be looked at. You will then choose the representatives or objects to stand for the members or subjects involved, and place them intuitively in the space.
The strong force that bonds members of a family or any other systems, will guide the representatives to find harmony and resolution. This happens through movement, deep breathing and the use of conciliatory sentences. When you are ready to look into the problems in-depth, a solution then arises which usually brings a big sense of relief and deep understanding. Even if it is not your own constellation, when taking part in a group session, every participant usually experiences a deep benefit for their own personal healing.
Individual treatments and online formats are worked in a similar way. Instead of the physical representatives, the client and the therapist will use any type of objects, such as small dolls or anchor papers, or the client themselves will represent the characters who are taking part in the work. Individual constellations are as effective as group ones.
The duration of a session might vary, but it will usually take about 2 hours.
Conditions worked with
Systemic work is a powerful therapy which can help anyone feeling stuck in a life ruled by repetitive patterns and not living life to its fullest potential. It will help you to move forward and to break through stagnation and blockages.
It is for those who experience uneasy relationships in their families, in social, interpersonal, or professional circles, or for anyone feeling anxious, stressed or experiencing an illness or addiction.
Constellations can transform and bring clarity to one's career, finances, health, relationships and empower you to step into your dreams.
Who are Constellations for?
Families, couples, individuals, children, businesses, schools, courts, hospitals, universities,..Please read below about Juridical Constellations applied to Family Law cases.
Systemic work is for those who seek happiness, success, love, health, and harmony in their lives.
How often will I need treatment?
The frequency of the treatment depends on the issue brought, its scope, your readiness to look into your stuff and transform, within other factors. Usually in one session, if the client is ready to see, we will work through a whole subject of the presented issue and it will bring a big sense of relief and transformation.
For a harmonious life, Bert Hellinger - the father of Constellation Work - talks about bringing balance in all the relationships with our ancestors and family members. So it is always interesting to work with the father, mother and siblings lines, which can be done in a few sessions. Also, we can work through any specific matter that is holding you back, from relationship problems, unsuccessful business, to stopping smoking. All can be look at through systemic work.
Please do get in touch to discuss any personal enquires or book a session.
Next group dates for 2021, August 21st-22nd, September 25th, October 16th and November 20th in Frome area. Get in touch for more information.
Systemic Law and Juridical Constellations
The legal constellation takes the knowledge of the family constellation to the courts to resolve family conflicts. The purpose is to look for the root of the problems presented and find the causes of the conflict between the parties without the need for the judicial process.
Systemic law is an effective methodology as a way to resolve disputes. In matters of Family Law, the use of family constellation techniques has proven to be extremely effective. Issues involving custody, child support, divorces, parental alienation and even inventories are being resolved more easily, saving those involved the strain that a lawsuit can cause.
The family constellation theory aims to identify conflicts based on the system of family relationships. This methodology has proven to be very effective in resolving family law disputes, as conflict is often just the “tip of the iceberg”. By identifying the root of the problem, it is easier to work out an agreement and resolve the issue once and for all.
I offer consultations for individuals, couples, families, schools, corporations, lawyers and law firms. Please contact me if you want to know more about the legal constellation.
SYSTEMIC LIFE COACHING
I positively support people in their desire for transformation. In the Systemic Life Coaching sessions I encourage my clients to become more confident and secure in who they are. I assist efficiently to help you to feel more grounded and to learn how to solve your own life challenges. I contribute with another pair of eyes to look into your life and to reflect from a different perspective, encouraging you to take responsibility for your own actions and life.
Responsibility brings empowerment and only facing our own fears and taking positive tangible accounted actions towards our dreams, we will make vital positive changes in our lives.
Who is Systemic Life Coaching for?
These sessions are for anyone who is ready to look into what is challenging their lives and for who has an actual committed desire to transform and move beyond.
What to expect in a session?
In our sessions, we will use Systemic Coaching tools being aware of the system that the client belongs to. The duration of a session might vary, but it will usually take about 90 minutes. We will create actual steps and actions to move forward with any issue or challenge that is brought into the session. Clarity, forward thinking, self-empowerment and actual transformation are some of the qualities provided by the visionary coaching.
Please do get in touch to discuss any personal enquires or book an appointment.
Everything is exactly what it has to be. The mountains are there to remind us to Trust. Look at the rivers of wise waters. In this era of quick running shoes aiming for greener spaces, the most ancient spiritual practice in the existence of humanity is here to remind us of the self-healing and the self-knowledge. Everything reduces down to The Source of Everything That It Is, Mamãe Natureza, Mother Earth, Tunkanshila.
Contemporary Shamanic practices are a healing therapy that involves the practitioner reaching altered states of consciousness. This allows us to perceive and interact with the spirit world and channel these transcendental energies into this world.
Shamanic practices help to restore our innate personal power. They can help you to find peace and bring balance back into your life, rebuilding your natural protective personal power.
These healing techniques are rooted in some of the oldest spiritual practices all around the world. Shamanic practitioners use, amongst other techniques, a repetitive drumbeat to reach an altered state of consciousness.
What to expect in a session?
Shamanic healing is usually a relaxing meditative experience. It can be done in person or through distance healing. The duration of a session may vary, but it will usually take about 90 min.
We will start by asking you what has brought you to a session and then invite you to lie down comfortably. During the session I might use some drumming, rattling, chanting, blowing, smudging and use of crystals and stones.
With the help of the Bigger Forces, we will work to bring back parts of your soul that need to be retrieved. We might help you to let go of unwanted and foreign energies, and support you to connect with your power animals. We will work wherever is needed to restore the healthy balance of your full self.
What is Soul Retrieval?
Soul Retrieval is one of the spiritual Shamanic Practices used in order to bring an individual who is suffering from soul loss back to wholeness, healing the energetic fragmentation of the Self.
Soul loss might originate from: abuse, prolonged pain or grief, addictions, out-of-body or near-death experiences, rejection, abandonment, accidents, seeing someone die unexpectedly, being in an unhealthy relationship, forced to act against your will, etc.
Soul retrieval will energise you and bring about feelings of grounding, clarity, reawakening, aliveness, belonging, wholeness, as well as better sleep, and health.
Whom is Shamanic Healing for and conditions worked with
Shamanic healing can help you if you have the sensation of not being present or if you have been feeling lost, wanting to be elsewhere or missing a part of yourself.
It could help you if you have been suffering any illnesses, fear, drug-alcohol abuse, separation, anxiety, depression, loss of a dear one, experiencing traumatic situations, or have a challenging relationship with someone.
Please do get in touch to discuss any personal enquires or book an appointment.

I feel so much happier and lighter now; able to connect with the loved ones in my life without the same old triggering reaction patterns jeopardising my relationships. Thank you Sofi!” Sam, online Systemic Constellation.
"I loved how Sofia created such a beautiful, welcoming space, with great attention to making it a comfortable experience. Her deeply intuitive and caring approach to the process, along with her genuine skill as a facilitator, contributed to the release and healing of ancestral baggage, which has left me feeling freer and more empowered to shine my light in the world." Paola Grey. Shamanic Family Constellations Retreat.
“Sofia is a skillful professional, highly sensitive and owns a very strong presence. I had an online family constellation session with her and it was deeply transformative. I highly recommend her services!” Flavia Tibucheski, online Systemic Constellation.
"Sofia´s work is life-changing. She helped me to see and to understand issues in my family and guided me to bring love, forgiveness, and harmony back to all my relationships. I finally broke free from pain and suffering and abundance flows into my life. I can feel the power of my ancestors supporting me from behind and field of many opportunities in front. Thank you!
Sofia leads the constellations with immensely kind and loving energy and you can completely trust her. I can only recommend this work to everyone who wants to bring balance back to his life." Lenka, artist – Group Systemic Constellation.
'It has been a wonderful experience. Sofi's talent goes beyond comprehension. The connection, the energy and the emotions experienced have been intense, deep and liberating. The experience has been incredible. You end up with a smile on your face, a calm mind, and a full heart. Immensely grateful. ' Magui, Group Systemic Constellation.
'There is nothing stronger than belief in yourself and those who support you. I totally recommend Sofia's Shamanic Healing session, not only as an aid therapy to achieve physical healing, but also peace, calm and well-being of the spirit. ' C. Freire, Shamanic Healing and Group Family Constellations.
'A great work for the soul ... The only thing I can say in words is that it connects and offers a perspective that I have never experienced. When you look at a river, a mountain, the sea, the clouds ... they are connected ..., we are connected ...' Ruben Fernandez, Group Systemic Constellation.
Amazing experience that helped me to realise some hidden emotions and freed me from blockages. Highly recommended. Raquel Valero. Shamanic Family Constellations Retreat.
"Sofia helped me to transform the relationship with my son. The constellation showed me clearly the patterns carried from my past and the relationship with my mom and its influence with my own family. From now on, I give myself the freedom and do not condition the love I give or receive by given up my will or denying what I enjoy, as I did on the past due to the fear of losing the others love. Thanks to Sofia for a sensitive approach, great leadership, connectivity and insights during the constellation." Sona, Group Systemic Constellation.
"I had a family constellation with Sofia recently and it completely blew me away. The work was extremely deep and powerful and helped me to understand a lot to do with my family and held patterns within it. With one session I was able to understand a deep block, stopping love from flowing within my family and I was able to let go - I can only imagine the power of a few sessions. I honestly believe Sofia to be one of the most naturally gifted and intuitive healers I have ever met - she has the ability to see exactly what is going for you at any time and is extremely perceptive and encourages authenticity which makes for great healing- she is a lovely and warm person who is really doing good in the world”, John Montgomery, Individual in-person Systemic Constellation.
As an individual and healer on this spiritual path, I still need some help to unblock and release baggages from my ancestral lineage. With only one coaching session I have released so much fear of my present and future situation, leaving me very empowered and feeling free. I am feeling super lighter and with sense of direction for my new life. I highly recommend Sofia, she is truthfully gifted and very inspiring! Thank you so much for being here on this earth!! I see you! All my love to you, C.M. Systemic Life Coaching
