Carly Mountain is a psychotherapist, a psychosexual somatic therapist, breathworker and writer. For the last twenty years she has worked with sacred embodied practices. Her writing and work seeks to uncover what has been exiled or hidden within, that is longing to be remembered and reconnected with. Her new book Descent & Rising: Women’s Stories & the Embodiment of the Inanna Myth explores women’s real lived experiences of descent and rising, and familiarises us with a process of female psycho-spiritual growth often overlooked in patriarchal culture. Carly stumbled across the Inanna story during her own descent to the underworld and was astonished by the symmetry it held with her own experience. Since then she has devoted to working with the myth and specialises in beholding others as they traverse the depths of initiation; both in therapy, breathwork and within courses that support women’s awakening and unfolding. She lives in Sheffield, England with her husband and two daughters.
