“We are here to enJOY life, grow and to experience freedom. Exploring our uniqueness, creativity and wilde potential is our birthright. EVERYBODY is an artist of life!”

Joya Petra Gallasch is an internationally known coach, mentor, medium and published author; she has worked as an inspiration, soul purpose and transformation coach and teacher for more than 25 years.

She is dedicated to empowering woMen to let go of resistance, identify blocks, shift patterns, live fully-expressed lives, enjoy the journey, and unleash their wild potential. She has often been called a ‘spiritual midwife’.

She has been a yogini, and meditation practitioner for 25 years and involved in the ‘Healing Arts’ for more than 20 years. In 1989 she experienced her first spiritual awakening in the ‘City of Angels’, Los Angeles and has been on numerous pilgrimages allover the world.

Joya Petra is deeply inspired by the ways of the Great Goddess energy, which she also calls the ‘Feminine Principle’ which nurtures and nourishes all of us. Thus, she invites women to embrace their sacred and divine feminine essence, by coming into balance with their male energies. She invites men to connect with their vulnerability, creativity and compassion.

On the linear level, she is the CEO and founder of  ‘Being a Woman’, and was the co-founder of The Studio-International Film Actors’ Training, Inc., Hollywood Acting Workshop (HAW) and Capture Film Inc.

In her work with the studio for the past 20 years, she always lifted her clients to higher grounds. Her ability to connect people to their heart’s desire, soul purpose and unique gifts is very powerful. Joya nurtures one’s creativity, new visions and voices, and is a vortex where the heART can flourish. She loves to be a catalyst for clients to realize and manifest their dreams.

Her entertainment background as an actress, producer and radio host, which she calls experiences of the 1.act of her life, has offered humble and powerful growth.

As a writer, she completed and published the book: “Close-up: Filmschauspiel” and “Lueza” in Querschnitt, and is working on new books to be shared soon.

In Spain of 2006, she walked the 777 km long “Camino de Santiago de Compostela” in 34 days. She will be completing a book about her experiences.

The last 20 years have also been dedicated to deep healing work around the German and Jewish history.

As an international workshop, event and retreat producer and leader for 25 years, her passion is to nurture and empower human potential and to allow everybody to shine.


Her Goddess Ways

Joya has supported women and men in the past. Her personal journey recently, after having a Ph.D. in running male energy (as she calls it), took her into connecting deeply with her own the divine feminine qualities.

She guides women to remember their truest essence through self-love, softness and gentleness. Her work ignites a deep knowing and feeling of one’s soul-purpose.

She allows everyone to shine, and empowers one’s own leadership skills to blossom, such as taking responsibility, expressing needs with clarity and living by example.

Her approach is holistic, which includes body, mind and soul. Her gift has been to “see or feel” the underlying issue, restriction or self-imposed limitation. Each person connects with their own deep wisdom and remembers their birthright of well-being and healing. With great love, joy and ease, Joya holds space for powerful, practical healing processes to allow flow to happen again. Clients are gaining a deep understanding quickly and experience positive shifts on many levels.

Joya is an amazing faciliator. From her sweet, sweet spirit to her goddess voice, to the perfect layout of these three days. I experienced a re-emergence of myself. For the first time after leaving a workshop I feel that I have tools to take with me. I leave behind so many old destructive patterns, old energies, and are filled with a lightness and eagerness for life. I am so grateful to Joya for her exuberance and persistance, that is not at all invasive, but welcoming!! (Patrice C., Electrician/Massage Therapist)
