I have sought ways to open, support, and heal unresolved trauma in myself (sometimes mistakenly identified as anxiety and depression) since 1995. I discovered inner clowning in 2000 and knew immediately that I had discovered a powerful art form. Inner clowning uses shadow work, movement, sound, gesture, emotional expression, and authentic impulse. This is to “bypass the thought process” and be in emotional honesty with oneself as performer and with the audience in a playful two-way conversation that transforms. Inner clowning is exceptionally potent in its ability to integrate unconscious aspects of self towards wholeness, while humour lightens the intensity of the process. I am currently interested in a physiological approach for emotional availability and a psychological-artistic framework for personal development as articulated by David McMurray Smith (Pochinko lineage) and through a mentorship with Nayana Fielkov.
