Hello! I'm welcoming a bunch of new people into this space! Welcome! And, I figured now is as good a time as ever to do a short introductory post. Things to know about me: I'm Jo (she/her). I'm almost 36 years old. And I've been working in the coaching world for almost five years! I'm a Post Traumatic Growth Guide and Reiki Master/Teacher with a focus on resolving the unprocessed trauma that manifests in patterns that have us isolated and in deep shame. It always bears repeating that I believe that healing work is intrinsically anti-racist + anti-capitalist, full stop. period. It reconnects us to our most instinctual, fundamental aspect of self- the self that is geared towards inter-sovereignty, regeneration and collective joy. In moving towards this self, we actively move toward freedom from tyranny and oppression in all its forms. I desire for you to be deeply affected by this world. And I deeply desire for you to alchemize your deep affectation into bold action to build a just world designed to care for, honour and celebrate all, including yourself. If you've been in my courses or containers, I hope this has been clear (and if it hasn't been- let me know- I'm not doing my job well). I endeavour to show up to these values daily, in my life and business, and often I do so imperfectly. And I'm here, learning, un-learning, referring, breathing, listening, acting. I live in Ottawa with my partner, Jonathon, and my pooch, Mac. You have likely caught Mac traipsing through my stories. I desire deeply to be a force in this life, while simultaneously being scared shitless of what that desire might bring- you too? I think adults having favourite colours is kind of ridiculous but mine is purple. Burgers are the best. And, nothing beats a good back float when the world feels impossible. Get that float in and feel your aliveness and capacity come right back online. Thank you so much for being here- let's move into a momentum of deep love, together.

What fire stirs your hope and imagination? Where are you finding bits of joy to sustain yourselves?
