About Monica Watson "Sparking River"

Hi!  I am so glad you are here! Welcome! 

I am passionate about empowering people who are experiencing pain, trauma, anxiety and depression. eating disorders and family separation. Currently I own and operate the GAMA Pilates & Yoga Center in Alliston, Ontario, and offer retreat space at Sparking RIver Healing Sanctuary.

 My purpose is to help connect people to their soul fragments and return to the wholeness of their soul.

By choosing my as your Spirit and Medicine Guide, you also choose to work with a very experienced and well trained practitioner. 


 Kambo was the right medicine to clear my symptoms of Reynaulds Syndrome, PTSD Eating Disorders, Hypoglycemia. I have also used it to manage altitude sickness successfully. 

Reynaulds Syndrome is an auto-immune disorder that causes a reduction of circulation to extremities. In my case it was severe. My toes have been perfectly fine, even with snow melting in my boots when I became too adventurous up north.


I am certified in Kambo through The International Association of Sapo Practitioners, trained by Ananya Maitri under Peter Gorman, IASP.  Other teachers I have trained with are Darren Austin Hall, Hillary Faye, Kindlii McCollum, Sat Devbir Singh and Tracey Montanile.

My personal journey to healing began with a decision;

I was NOT willing to live my life in pain!

Kambo is the medicine that finally landed my soul pieces back in my body and I am my soul is fully HOME.


For years I suffered with a fibromyalgia, depression, an eating disorder, Reynauld's Syndrome, and  Hypoglycemia and PTSD during a time in my life when my marriage ended and I became a single parent to an infant. I didn't know how to do the father archetype and was totally overwhelmed.


I had to learn how to disengage energetically from people who were feeding off my energy;  it seemed that all I had to do was think of someone else's illness and it would manifest in my body.


Then I faced  the long and arduous job of figuring out how to heal myself over and over again and ecoming a doula for mothers in labor was a leap into my soul's purpose. 

Now I help others rebirth their soul!

I wish for you the transformation that I have experienced!



For a long time I felt that I could ever be enough, do enough or work or suffer enough to be accepted. Teaching in the public school system crushed my spirit. I did not feel aligned with the teaching methods. Now I teach holistically and work intuitively, which is the way we learn and grow. 


**I want to share with you all I have learned about chronic pain disorders and rare diseases. I want to empower you to create a new relationship with pain and what pain is here to teach you.**
