Conscious Dance Space : a body of work rooted in conscious dance / movement practice, and depth enquiry into personal and collective stories in the spheres of self, relationship and community. The work is informed by the principles of conscious evolution and an understanding of personal and collective trauma. 

 

We are facing global challenges at so many levels, my workshops, classes, community dances rituals and group processes attempt to nourish personal and collective creativity, deepen the ability to awaken beyond the stories we can get so bogged down in, and explore questions such as :-

 

How can we co-vision and co-create a culture that supports harmonious relations with all beings?

How can we ‘be the change’ we wish to see, opening to a deeper and richer participation?

What is required of us personally and collectively to embrace this challenge?

How can dance / movement practice and enquiry support us in this collective shift?

What is the role of community and coming together in circles of support?

“We have known Jo for many years and recognise in her a truly beautiful blend born of her many years of dedicated practice and enquiry. She is wise, funny and a truly unique dancer with a heart of gold and the uncompromising intelligence to match. She’s a force of nature who will stay with you wherever your journey leads.”

 

Ya’Acov & Susannah Darling Khan – Directors School of Movement Medicine
 

“Whether it’s 5 rhythms, ecstatic dance or just a bop!  Jo creates a space and invites you to dance and move from the core of their being.  Her wide selection of music is brilliant, from wild world beats to the sublime and angelic.”

Joyya Whelan – Seeds & Quest Festival Producer

She has 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist and group facilitator.    She is passionate about creating a space where the unique dance of each person can blossom and is known for her inspired and wide choice of music.”
