Meet Sylvia

Sylvia Poareo grew up in Southern California in various foster and relative homes. Despite her chaotic beginning, her personal connection to the divine and nature sustained and guided her.

Having experienced transformation with the Inner Bonding process, she was drawn to helping others heal. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Azusa Pacific University, a Master’s Degree in Social Welfare at UCLA, and became a certified spiritual counselor with the Association for the Integration of the Whole Person, founding the Naturally Conscious community (for more information on this unique approach, visit:

For over 19 years, she has shared the power of healing by teaching Inner Bonding, and serving as a “midwife to the healing process.” She deeply enjoys supporting Naturally Conscious and transformational healing  as she integrates the powerful self-healing Inner Bonding process, energy medicine, nature awareness and indigenous healing practices into her individual sessions, Inner Bonding support group, workshops and life changing retreats. She is known for her gentle, compassionate and clear way of bringing these many elements together to support your highest healing.

When she became a mother, she expanded her Naturally Conscious approach to create Conscious Mothering Circles and support, as a perfect complement to leading edge parenting education. Conscious Mothering helps mothers heal the emotional challenges and intuitive disconnect that interfere with conscious parenting, by reconnecting women to their own inner wisdom and spiritual connection.

She is passionate about offering empowering support to parents and families through individual personal sessions, Whole Child Consultations, Conscious Mothering Circles, Mothering Retreats as well as training others to lead Conscious Mothering Circles.  Through her Naturally Conscious community, she also enjoys empowering children as she blends her experience with therapeutic play, social skills support, earth connection, permaculture and waldorf concepts to create fun and nurturing family events, classes and seasonal gatherings that inspire and transform family life and create eco leaders.

She feels passionately that parenthood is an incomparable time of growth, learning and healing, to be engaged in consciously so we can be truly loving to ourselves, to our precious ones, and the world creating dynamic personal, family and planetary health!

When not doing this work she loves, she deeply enjoys growing and playing with her family, writing, dancing, reading, suburban farming, traveling, taking action on important issues, and being present in each moment!
