Jo's story

"Exploring what truly facilitates lasting transformation is my passion and has led me to study many perspectives, philosophies and modalities of transformational work.

I held a private practice of Contemplative Psychotherapy and Body Psychotherapy for 20 years and was a senior trainer on an MA program in Core Process Psychotherapy _at the _The Karuna Institute for 12 years.

Since 2004, I have been a Conscious Dance facilitator. I am an accredited teacher of 5 Rhythms, Open Floor and Movement Medicine and love each of these practices. I am also deeply inspired and influenced by many years of studying Amerta Movement with Suprapto Suryodarmo.

My work is also deeply informed by study with Joanna Macy and Thomas Hubl, involvement with Transition Towns Movement, an understanding of embodied trauma, and well honed body of wisdom about the process of personal and collective transformation.

As I gather years on Planet Earth, what matters to me most is the joy and profound healing of movement and dance, and its potential to profoundly enhance presence, embodiment and relatedness."
