Your trainer/facilitator bio
Madelanne is a Canadian somatic educator and facilitator who resides among the hills, meadows, and woodlands of Southern England, UK. Madelanne’s work meets at the intersection of social justice, Somatics, and regenerative culture.
Originally trained as a trauma-informed somatic psychotherapist (MA Naropa University), for the past 10+ years, she has been growing the community and practice of Body-Informed Leadership to address the wounds of connection carried in the bodies of Western people and cultures. BIL is a deep decolonising practice, and conveys a body-based toolkit to responsibly navigate trauma, privilege, and oppression as individuals and as groups, and to collectively wire up for a more just, joyful, and interconnected world.
Madelanne has created and led innumerable programs and trainings with youth and adults, each with their own unique flavour. Madelanne brings a gentle presence, deep curiosity, and a knack for enabling the inherent brilliance, diversity, and collective leadership of the groups she hosts.
