Through any aspect of transition,
we aim to prepare leaders and individuals
in being steady and stable in their presence
so that they find access to their internal resources
for adaptation and creativity.
At the core of any organization are the human beings.
To witness the evolution of a visionary movement take shape in the form of new ideas, new systems, new ways of organizing, and long-lasting, dynamic growth, is to witness the human beings behind those projects acting in (fueled with) vitality.
Our work is to facilitate powerful experiences that seed long-term practices that make prominent (dynamic/progressive) leaders and emergent organizations thrive.
Habitual patterns in the leadership culture and thinking paradigms lead to organization-wide stagnation and conflict. Deconstructing habits into their components is the key to finding dynamic new directions in everything from our identity to our ways of interacting and influencing others.
Visionary leaders often pay the toll of managing these states of crisis with their own health and sense of purpose. The stamina to maintain these waves of uncertainty put not only the organization’s well-being, but also puts human physiology to the test. These are the turning points when leaders seek a radical new direction or they fold. [a radical new approach that goes beyond even the best/the typical conflict-resolution strategies]
What is radical is an approach that activates our body’s physiology in going to the core of human ability to dynamically adapt, to stabilize, to transform, to self-actualize, to connect from a place of intimacy with oneself. That is the place where leadership radiates.
We employ (our years of experience) well-researched methods and techniques to catalyze the parts of every human being that enables us to (recover from crisis states) improve our vitality and to open up new perceptual fields that recalibrate our personal compass, our competences for growth, our access to creative catalysts, our sense of greater purpose, motivation, and joy in our pursuits.

Leaders & Individual Trainings
We have seen the performance of world renowned musicians become more radiant. We’ve worked in high intensity environments to bring calm in order for people to make sensitive life or death decisions. With people under the pressures of anxiety attacks, acute depression, common and chronic pains related to stress or habitual tensions, low self esteem, relationship crisis, career crisis, grief and loss, … mediation of personal and professional conflict…
We’ve effectively accompanied people in time-sensitive processes or over longer term processes.
Our methods and approaches have opened pathways for people to self-actualize.
Working at this level of the body-mind processes, a fundamental shift in creativity and connection with self and surroundings takes place.
We come with over a decade experience…
… working intimately with people in processes of self-discovery, approaching core fears and accesssing not only high performance but a sense of solidity in their core feeling of well-being.
“Camalo Gaskin is unique.”
DR. MICHEL ODENT, PIONEERING OBSTETRICIAN, SURGEON AND CHILDBIRTH SPECIALIST
“Marcello’s guidance was a life changing experience. I had experienced different bodywork techniques but his teaching at the Doula Immersion was like an ‘AHA moment’. Everything made sense for the first time. I will take this with me not only in my doula practice but in my life.”
YAKO VERDIER, DOULA (CENTER FOR DOULA PATHWAYS)
“I think this information that Camalo is presenting
is NEED TO KNOW info.”
JAN TRITTEN, FOUNDER, MIDWIFERY TODAY
“In my practice as an out-of-hospital midwife, it has been my pleasure to collaborate with Camalo on a number of occasions. Each time I am struck by the ways in which she is able to hold space for and accompany her clients through the childbearing cycle, with so much empathy, professional skill and intuition.
I have felt confident working together with her to make sure that a family receives the best possible care, knowing that she will support them well through this transitional period regardless of where they choose to have their birth. I have experienced her as a grounded and steady advocate for families in situations where they may feel overwhelmed or unable to advocate for themselves. I recommend her highly as a Doula for families seeking sensitive, knowledgeable, continuous care, as well as to other midwives as a dynamic and supportive colleague.
On a personal level I enjoy working with Camalo so much, sharing skills and experiences as we approach our practice from two complementary perspectives.”
IMOGEN MINTON, MIDWIFE
““Marcello is a guide and mentor for the long term. I found it difficult to grasp the extensiveness of his work because I feel it is something that takes a lifetime to begin to understand. During the Doula Immersion, he did a great job at giving us advice on how to incorporate this knowledge into how we approach touch and connection with birthing people (everyone, really).”
MICHELLE WIGHT, DOULA (CENTER FOR DOULA PATHWAYS)
“Marcello and Camalo are a powerful team and I can merely recommend them. The Fascia session was deeply liberating. We were amazed by Marcello… his care, his guidance, and his touch. The treatment did not only help my body to let go of all the tension I had accumulated during the past pregnancy months, but it calmed my mind too. In addition, they taught my partner and I vitalizing practices to prepare for labour.”
SILVIA AND MARCUS CONDE
“The perspective and the world view linked to the Doula Immersion was vital. The teaching was profound and essential and fundamental, it was perfect.”
JOHARA BELLALI, ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENTIST, DOULA (CENTER FOR DOULA PATHWAYS)
“Camalo Gaskin has mastered the craft of delivering captivating lectures on obstetric culture and bias. After her guest lecture, students referenced her material and talked passionately about the awakening experienced from this new body of knowledge. Camalo encourages all to be analytical, interdisciplinary, and empathic in their thinking.””
DR. EVANGELISTA, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR, CUNY
“My partner was moved by Marcello’s care and how he guided him to touch for my pregnancy. After his fascia treatment, we both felt so much more vitality and connection to everyone around us. Even our one year old started to point to my belly and say “baby” for the first time in my whole pregnancy.”
TSUKASA & MALTE YAMAMOTO
“Camalo engages with birth at a global level in ways absolutely unique in the Berlin birth world. She allows the nuance in each birth story to be self-so. She approaches birth without fear or judgement. And she is dedicated to this work at a soul level.”
ANNIE KOCHER, DOULA
Before the Doula Immersion I didn’t know anything about fascia, and it opened up a whole new dimension of the body to me, not only theoretically but also feeling it in my own body. Marcello gave me some amazing tools to work with pregnant persons in a different way.”
TATIANE SANTANA PEREIRA, PSYCHOTHERAPIST, DOULA (CENTER FOR DOULA PATHWAYS)
“We went touching, breathing … We feel so much more confident and calm about birth because of this new experience with Marcello and Camalo. Yes, we feel empowered and connected as we so deeply desired it.”
