Springtime greetings and wishes that we all may find ways to cultivate personal and collective grounding so that, from there, we may be able build pathways towards peace in our current lifelines.



In 2024, Fluid Resilience will be coming to Canada for some performances, intensive workshops, and video installations.


In August we will be installing a video of Fluid Resilience at the Pathways to Sustainability Conference in Montreal


Invited by Senior Research fellow Dr. Allyson Quinlan, Resilience Alliance member. She introduced this work to me in 2018 and  I found it an inspiring and innovattive approach to deepening stewardship of the environment. We then developed an approach to making a performance work during the pandemic, with the inspiration to connect water to ourselves, in movement and content. Looking forward to interact with this rich grouping of scientists who, as creative thinkers, are working actively towards solutions for sustainability. If ever there was a time.

Our partner, Ottawa Dance Directive has been supporting this project since 2018 and through all the throws of the pandemic and rescheduling we are so pleased to be bringing a outdoor version to Ottawa the Fall. Stay tuned for early September dates. We are working towards a workshop during our residency there, engaging with some of the artists and practitioners we gathered during Yvonne Coutts’ “Reclaiming Attention” online residency from 2021. Coutts is also engaging with her contacts in the rejuvenated Arts Court, and we will be installing a video version of Fluid Resileince for DARC (Digital Arts Resource Center).




After a year and a half teaching sabbatical, afforded by the Berlin Senat Tanxpraxis Stipend I am inspired and delighted to be offering these upcoming spring workshops.

Please find the information and hope you feel attracted to the possibility to join one of the upcoming workshops I am offering in my teaching practices of Dynamic Expansion and Moveable Cinema. I tailor the practice to support the unique constellation of people who attend each workshop.

Private sessions in Craniosacral Dynamic Expansion

New practice space Announcement

Spring a time of blossoming and change, I am delighted to announce my move to a new healing studio.

After 2 wonderful years in the Remise at Schlesischstr. 20, I moved my practice and office to the same address, but to the 4th floor in the Fabrikgebäude.
This quiet and bright space has wonderful Kreuzberg courtyards and sky views. The practice also is accessible via Elevator.


Craniosacral/Expanded Consciousness sessions have many benefits for wellness including: deeply easing stress, deep rest for the nervous system, increased vitality, unwinding of unwanted habits, and increased general well-being. Craniosacral also has many benefits for Health (active definition of health: as "not a state but a search for equilibrium") including; improving eyesight/vision, reduced acute pain, rehabilitation in the neural field, learning disabilities, gross and fine motor problems, developmental delays, headaches, tinnitus, TMJ syndrome, stress disorders, trauma and neurological conditions.

Craniosacral Dynamic Expansion is a hybrid practice which I developed incorporating 25+ years of Craniosacral practices together with expanded consciousness, movement awareness and co-creative work with Nature. I work co-creatively with each client given one's individuality and needs. Please note that some themes and issues could find resolution in one session, some in three to four sessions and others over time.


Long-Distance Practice

I also practice long-distance sessions, done over audio calls, or video calls. I have received very positive feedback over the last decade, and one of the beautiful benefits of these sessions is I am able to offer continuity for my international clients or for those in Germany who do not reside in Berlin or with those that prefer to be in their private space for this one-to-one work. Please be in touch if this mode of working interests you.

I continue to develop and exchange this work with my regular clients who inspire me constantly, and I am open to welcoming new clients as my schedule permits.
