Joanne teaches 5Rhythms with a deep respect for the transformational nature of this practice, for the insight that these maps can bring to our daily lives, and for the unique discovery process of each participant. Her teaching is rooted in a lifelong engagement with her own study and personal work. Since 2001, she has held a steady space for the growth and evolution of a robust dance community in Victoria BC, has supported students and colleagues with their own teaching path, and has shared her love of this practice with communities across North America.
"Shadow, Dark, and Light with Joanne was a journey unlike any other 5Rhythms Shadow/Light exploration I have been a part of. She held the workshop with such sensitivity, depth, humour, and spaciousness of invitation. Joanne led us through what is alive with mystery and possibility in the fertile dark, what shadows we turn away from in ourselves, and what inner gold is illuminated in the light. Her feet-on-ground strength of presence, rich soundscapes, and clear deep love of this work, provided us with such a solid and welcoming container for vulnerability and discovery. Joanne is a wise witness, a weaver of magic between the worlds, and a true artist of the deep." ~ Layah Singer-Wilson, 5Rhythms Teacher
