Hello, my name is Stephanie Marie. For over a year, I searched for community. Overtime the search expanded into a calling to create a space and community for others. I didn’t know where or how to start? It was simply a strong desire that would not rest.
One day, I stepped into my first Council practice and I was home.
I practiced various forms of council in high school and college, but this specific form stood out. The intentions of the practice made the difference. I loved the depth of connection, authentic relating and the true community that was fostered. Council helped me gain clarity and notice things in my life that I overlooked. Shortly after my first council, I became a trained facilitator of the practice.
On top of my council certification, I am a certified Trauma-Informed 200hr Hatha Yoga Teacher, a certified 100hr Integrative Amrit Method (I AM) Yoga Nidra Facilitator and certified 20hr Yin Yoga Teacher. I am also certified in Level 1 of the Trauma Resilience Model (TRM) and Youth Mental Health First Aid USA and am trained in Non-Violent De-Escalation – Level 1 Training. Plus I am a mindfulness blogger.
I have planned and facilitated youth writing workshops, including leadership programs for youth and college students throughout Los Angles, CA, Metro Phoenix and Austin, TX.
I look forward to meeting you in one of our public/ private circles or events.
