    STAA is excited to be hosting its 4th practitioner circle, a space where we can gather together to support, to connect and to enhance our professional development skills as a community. 

    Each circle, a new speaker will facilitate, so we can discover new offerings, explore diverse teachings and expand our community connections. Together we can nurture a community of practitioners with our mutual support and inspiration. 

    For our circle in May we welcome Jules and Sam. 

    Jules and Sam will be guiding us through an exploration of informed bodywork with the Wheel of Consent model.  This  experiential circle will invite participants to:

    •    reflect on their experiences of receiving bodywork,
    •    develop skills to track their experiences whilst treating,
    •    create more awareness of the different types of touch,
    •    feel into ways to co-create check in protocols with clients. 

    Jules is a somatic therapist and somatic sex educator based in Naarm. They work with individuals to move through periods of stuckness, process trauma and develop skills in emotional and nervous system regulation. 

    Sam is a somatic sex educator based in Naarm. They teach erotic embodiment classes online, see clients for interactive erotic education and develop courses and workshops in the field of somatic sex education. 

    We look forward to you joining us for the opportunity to connect creatively, to grow, and to take a deep breath in our shared care of others and ourselves.

    STAA is excited to be hosting its 4th Practitioner Circle – a space where we gather to connect as a community, to support one another and enhance our professional skills. 

    Each  circle is facilitated by a different speaker, sharing new offerings and diverse teachings and expanding our community connections. Together, we nurture a community of practitioners with mutual support and inspiration. 

    For our circle in May we welcome Ann Hocking. 

    Ann comes to our circle to support us in being conscious, present and aware as we go about our daily lives and work practices.

    Ann graduated from the ASC in 2015 and currently treats in both her home clinic and an integrative clinic. Ann works with compassion and depth, holding a space for each client's needs. She is passionate about self awareness and self care, as life can so easily take over from our being in the moment. 

    Ann holds qualifications in Science, (BSc Chemistry), Astrology (Grad Dip), Tarot, Reiki and  Energy Healing and more recently has studied and worked with the breath, distant healing, and PNI (Psycho Neurological Immunotherapy). She has served on the National Council as a STAA member for the past 7 years. 

    We look forward to you joining us for the opportunity to connect creatively, grow and take a deep breath in our shared care of others and ourselves.
