Josie is a Certified Meditation and Yoga Teacher who was introduced to spirituality and alternative way of living 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 both life experience, informal study and professional training are what makes her such a potent guide.
Here is her story.
"I knew I wanted to help people but by the time I finished my degree I realised I was in dire need of some 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 a lot of the time and my relationships were stunted by the fact that I didn't trust anybody and I couldn't communicate my feelings.
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 all of my personal challenges, they could work for anyone no matter what they were dealing with.
With the short time I have here on this Earth I intend to build community, create beautiful experiences of connection and help people to find ways to enjoy their lives. To sow the seeds of compassion in as many hearts 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."
