Dawn has coordinated the trainings/conferences in Israel for the past 5 years here bringing this work to the land and people which now is having a resounding impact.
She feels that the work of ISTA and the trainings, has brought to her life some of the most fully integrated humans working tirelessly in their vision to elevate the human spirit and rid the body, and psyche of the shame, guilt, and fear. She is elated and humbled to work with a group of dedicated visionaries, and honored to be on teaching staff. She sees her community growing, shifting and opening around her, as well as herself. There is healing happening on so many levels- learning to heal the split within our own being, and embracing our masculine loving our feminine, or vice-versa. She is so loving sharing this work with people.
She is most often in the states ,and frequently in Israel but is available for personal sessions and teaching wherever the need and spirit invites her.
Currently, she has been immersed in creating a collaborative mythological, interactive, ritual theatre piece, including electronic dance music.
