We are one inter-connected community and Web of Life.
When we understand the interconnectedness of reality, we can move from a space of deep-bodied safety, support, connection, and resourcing. We are never alone, never disconnected from the greater whole of life that always wants to connect with and provide for us. We always have access to safety and goodness resources, we just need to learn how to access them and program resources and new pathways in our neurological system—our body.
This is not abstract philosophy. It is operating from evidence based techniques found in neuroscience and somatic psychology. Trauma informed somatic education and embodied practice are the portals of access. Somatic arts and science ground; the body leads; spirituality, nature, and mind support, provide, and nourish with resources, awareness, and presence. We move from an ecological, bottom-up approach, supported by a top-down interface. When grounded in the body and natural ecological space, that interface between Spirit-Mind-Body becomes a powerful portal of self-knowing as we discover the Creator in and as the Creation in a safe, rooted, self-contained, and stable way.
My expertise is connecting you to resources, education, and embodied somatic practice that will ground you in the body safely so you can explore the art of spiritual and creative embodiment without self-destructing. I couple this with nourishing Feminine spiritual wisdom, nature connection and communion, creative arts exploration and expression, support, community, and safe social engagement.

Srimati Arya Moon
Somatic Arts and Ceremony (SAMSAC)
Srimati Arya Moon means to honor and be in union with the Glory of Creation and the cycles and rhythms that govern it. The founder of Srimati Arya Moon, Allison Carpenter (who goes by Srimati), dreamed of creating a community gathering space that celebrated and honored the Divine Feminine as the Creator in the Creation. She envisioned providing resources, connection, hope, and community to women struggling to find a place in late-stage societal patriarchy, creating a gathering space rooted in the practice of somatic arts, feminine spirituality, nourishing ceremony, ethics, self-expression, and creativity.
SAMSAC seeks to create a community and well-of-resources for spiritual women to access, cradled by beauty, ceremony, creativity, artistry, and the Spirit of Nature experienced in the body. Srimati believes every human can experience the Creator in the Creation, called the Web of Life in Shamanic traditions, within their own body through the felt sense experience. In her yoga tradition, this experience is called Wahe Guru; the ecstatic felt sense experience of Self-illumination unveiling in the body. The Somatic Arts practices taught at SAMSAC seek to provide a gateway to this experience through safe, ethical, trauma-informed embodiment and uplifting, dogma free spiritual community.

About Srimati's Art
All of Srimati's paintings are inspired by nature, the cosmos, natural cycles, and her experiences in self-realization and embodiment as a woman. Much of her art explores the female body and nude form. Her art style is whimsical and playful, imbuing rich color and expressive depth, focusing on connotative representation with sacred figures, archetypes, motifs, and symbols.
Srimati uses acrylics, watercolors, and gouache paint on canvas and fine art paper. She also utilizes pen and ink and digital illustration for the creation of her coloring book art.
Srimati is currently not selling any original art, but she does offer reproductions of her art through her print shop through Fine Art America and Pixels.
