"Known for her grounding presence, profound insight and sense of humour Josie is particularly talented at helping people to feel calm, safe and accepted."
Josie was first introduced to meditation and spirituality at the age of eight, when her mother enrolled her in Ba'hai religious studies at primary school (a class where she and her younger brother were the only students).
Upon revisiting these practices as an adult, she came to realise that in one way or another - despite her tumultous life - she had been practicing creative spirituality for most of her life.
Her complex personal history, combined with her extensive study and profound interest in the unknowable aspects of life have turned her into a kind, understanding and wise spiritual teacher.
Available online and in person, if you need a wise guide with a compassionate, non-judgemental ear to support your personal growth make a booking or give her a call today.
Many people are drawn to Josie because of her personal story (read below) and the breadth of her life experience.
To complement her lived experiences and deepen her understanding of the world Josie has spent the past 11 years studying Social Practice, Yogic Living and Spirituality.
Knowledgeable and passionate, Josie is experienced in talking to and facilitating workshops for both large and intimate groups of people. Able to provide WWC and personal references as required, I'm comfortable in person, over the phone or online, I use Zoom.

More About Josie...
Josie is a Certified Meditation and Yoga Teacher who was introduced to spirituality and alternative life-styles as a young child. While undergoing her formal education, obtaining her Bachelor's Degree Majoring in Community Development, her interest in spirituality was reignited.
Josie's accumulation of wisdom through her personal journey, informal study and professional certifications as well as several years of experience working in the community are what makes her such a potent guide.
"I knew I wanted to help people but by the time I finished my degree I realised I was in dire need of help myself. I had been in pain for a long time, emotionally and physically, it was affecting every single area of my life. I could barely function in society. My extensive trauma history, ongoing mystery illnesses and unhealthy coping mechanisms coloured every interaction and activity in my life.
In my early to mid-20s, upon moving to Queensland, I was diagnosed with a number of painful and invisible, chronic illnesses including endometriosis. I had chronic acute anxiety along with periods of suicidal depression, all of my interperonsal relationships were stunted by a lack of ability to trust and difficulty with communication.
I was stuck in survival mode and it wasn't until I truly felt safe and supported that I was able to address the many levels of pain I was experiencing.
This is where my healing journey truly began.
Using a combination of the wonders of modern medicine, meditation, yoga, creative spiritual practice and lots of love I was able to take my finger off the emergency button and truly start to recover from my experiences. I realised that if these techniques worked and helped me, despite my personal challenges, they could work for anyone no matter what they were dealing with.
I intent to spent the short time I have here on this Earth to help others recognise their innate wisdom, connect with community and help people to find creative ways to enjoy their lives. To live with an open heart (and clear boundaries) so that I may sow the seeds of compassion as much as possible.
If you would like to work with me please get in touch in whatever way is most comfortable for you to do so. I am open to communicating via phone, text, voice messages, video calls and emails as needed/desired."
