Befriend your nervous system.
Find peace with food.
When you participate in the online “Peace with Food Transformation Group,” you will join a small group on a weekly 6-month exploration of the neurobiological patterns that have been at the root of your eating habits and suffering.
With carefully curated knowledge and embodied somatic practices, you will change those patterns and build emotional capacity, resiliency, and stability.
With gentle encouragement and steady practice, you, too, can find peace with food.
“I stand here more in my body than ever before and loving it. Galina is a true master, mystic, and a wizard that embodies neuro-regulation. She holds space with so much love, grace, and gnosis that you will not find elsewhere. Give yourself the gift of working with Galina.“

Your body is the answer.
An invitation to come home
If you’ve tried every diet and eating plan out there and still feel like you can’t eat “normally” – this is for you. The Transformation Group works directly with your body – bottom up – so that you can take care of yourself with confidence and competency, without needing to manage your uncomfortable states and emotions with food.
Your nervous system is intelligent, faithfully dedicated to your survival, and surprisingly robust. It has done its best to help you cope with distress your whole life. When you greet the ways you have survived with empathy and clarity, you can find new ways to support yourself in the present moment, free from the automatic habits of the past.
You’re NOT “addicted” to food.
Your body is doing the best it can to protect you.
You may find yourself eating when you are not hungry, not being able to stop, or restricting and not trusting your body, but that doesn’t make you an addict. Your nervous system has worked tirelessly to protect you from the impact of overwhelming life events, and the way you have been eating is very much a part of your survival story.
Now, beginning from this moment, you can start to gently guide yourself towards safety and ease. Together, we will discover how your body is protecting you and offer new ways of being through tested, structured, evidence-based somatic practices. I’ll help you turn these practices into self-paced routines that you can use to support yourself in times of distress, and to guide your body into a place of regulation and safety.
Hear from students who have completed a Peace with Food Transformation Group.
I learned to listen!
I can now deeply listen and trust the cues and messages of my body. I bring curiosity to my body signals and playfully communicate with it.
I learned to recognize my needs and taking in nourishment. For example, I don’t have to over-eat so I get glued to the couch and finally watch my favorite movie…. I can give it to myself graciously and directly.
I became more present to my personal and professional relationships…I realized I value attuned presence over doing, solving, fixing, and making impressions.
I created a space inside that enables me to set boundaries and speak up for my needs.
I am forever thankful for this opportunity!

This year was different!
I went through years of bingeing. This year I had Christmas and it was just Christmas. No more obsessing and struggling with food!
I am also not working and efforting so much, I am more present with my clients in my work and I am confident in what I know.

Effortless and organic!
The group is a brilliant, beautiful blend of learning, healing, and experiencing in a crucial yet untouched part of me.
Even though nervous system language and concepts were completely foreign to me, I have found that it is an integral part of our being that can be deeply affected by trauma and needs to be addressed and healed!
Approaching things from a nervous system perspective in this group has been a game-changer and the healing comes organically, as a by-product of participating in the group and engaging in the nervous system practices. It is not something forced or efforted into existence.

Galina is a true master!
I entered Galina’s Peace with Food program in the summer of 2022 after some years of significant healing work and practices to resolve childhood trauma and to learn how to regulate my nervous system.
Galina’s program is truly one of a kind, in its intention, content, context, potency, integrity and relatability. It is fully practical; it will change all areas of your life in the direction of truth and peace. I stand here more in my body than ever before and loving it.
Galina is a true master, mystic and a wizard of embodies neuro regulation. She holds space with so much love, grace and gnosis that you will not find elsewhere. Give yourself the gift of working with Galina and her team. It is an experience that reshapes your inner world so your outer world becomes a reflection of the true you.

I am dancing, I am free!
For 30 years it was so scary to feel anything in my body.
Today I have a connection with my body, I can just land in myself in a deeply integrated way.
Every day and every week I am becoming more and more present.
There is nothing to be afraid of anymore.
The group was so helpful!
I found the structure, meeting at the same time every week, having group meetings, having the 1-1 sessions, the journal prompts, the home practices, our discussion group – having this small community of support – all of it was stabilizing and made everything different for me!
I am listening to music more freely, and enjoying it a ton!
And I move to the music, too!
That is tremendous for me – I went from “we don’t do that” to “let’s move, let’s dance!”
I dance all the time now, I am free!

Possibilities for growth!
My biggest take away from the group is that I have been struggling to feel love, compassion and acceptance for myself my whole life.
The missing piece is that without being embodied, I could not love myself the way I do now, because you can’t love something that isn’t there, and for so long I have not felt that I have been fully here.
To feel connected to myself and this physical world opens up incredible possibilities for mental, emotional and spiritual growth.
That is something that no amount of psychology or book learning could have given me. I’m forever grateful!

I don’t turn to food anymore!
I was at a very low point in my life and had a very unhealthy relationship with food.
I truly understood how I was harming myself with food and using it as a coping mechanism. I signed up for the course and boy, what I got was way more than I bargained for.
Understanding the effect that trauma has had on my nervous system and the cascading impact that has led me to have unhealthy coping skills with food was mind-blowing!
With the help of Galina’s knowledge and teaching, I can quickly draw on the tools learned in class, re-regulate myself to a grounded state, and not turn to food to soothe myself. The joy of this class has been rediscovering who I am without the experiences and traumas that have defined me for so long!
It was an honor to share my story and experiences with my group and vice versa. We have much more in common with people than we know!
I awaken my nervous system by dancing daily and enjoying connecting to my five senses in nature…YES, even hugging a tree!
I can truly say this experience has changed my life!

A small group designed just for you
A safe, brave space.
Dear one, you’re not alone. After years of coping with difficult emotions, being at war with your body, and struggling through each day, please know that it’s not a one-person job to heal. Healing is a long-term process that incorporates many parts. In the Transformation Group, we’ve created a space for you and those like you. It’s a safe space and a brave space. It was made for you and your journey.
Not just knowledge, but knowing.
Information about trauma imprints and the nervous system is abundant. Reading a book or taking a course can give you valuable insight, but somatic change needs you to slow down and learn to hear your body in real time. Our space is created with you in mind – so that each time you show up, you turn insight into real-life transformation.
A stable home for support.
When you’re in the middle of a food struggle, it can feel like your whole life is unstable, and there’s nothing you can count on. Let the Transformation Group be your pillar of support as you gain tools to reduce overwhelm, settle emotions, and stabilize other areas of your life.
“What Galina teaches has changed my life completely. My relationship with food, my body, myself and others is everything I want it to be now. The guilt of being me and setting boundaries has shifted and I am now living life on my terms.“
-Derek, Peace with Food Transformation Group Member
For many who need help with food, the advice on moving forward can feel overwhelming and ineffective. When you try to go it alone, it can be easy to misdiagnose why you eat as you do — leading to shame, guilt, and frustration.
That’s why I created the Peace with Self, Peace with Food Transformation Group – to offer a simple, step-by-step change process where you can learn the science-based somatic practices to gently re-write your body’s coping mechanisms. Hundreds of students have found greater freedom through learning with a Transformation Group. Wouldn’t you like to have that kind of life-changing support, too?
