Awaken BodyTalk

Are you tired of chasing your symptoms and ready to locate, identify, untangle and address the underlying causative factors?

I am Angela Johnson, Advanced-Certified BodyTalk Practitioner and BodyTalk Access Trainer, at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage near Rutledge, MO. (Formerly in Sioux Falls, SD.) The BodyTalk System is a health care modality that recognizes symptoms as messages, and taps into the body/mind's own innate wisdom and self-repair mechanisms.

 ...And much more...

It was barely one year between the time I first experienced the healing power of the BodyTalk System and the time I began training to become certified as a BodyTalk practitioner myself.  That year was filled with experiences of "waking up" and seeing others "wake up" to healing after receiving BodyTalk sessions. (Back pain, migraines, mystery rashes, tummy aches all reversing in a very short period of time.) Fast-forwarding... now after having a professional practice myself for over five and a half years...and having taken and tested over all of the core advanced modules to become certified as an Advanced-BodyTalk Practitioner and further training in adjunct BodyTalk trainings from the founder, Dr John Veltheim, as well as Dr Laura Stuve's BodyEcology and Epigenetics courses, and Kerry D'Ambrogio's Fascial Energetics and Orthopedic Evaluation experience CONTINUES to be one of further Awakening.  BodyTalk has awakend within me a true paradigm shift regarding what is possible, what true healing is like (from the inside), and why we are here. For more on my personal journey with BodyTalk, see my "Bio Page" on the International BodyTalk Association's listing of practicing members and instructors.  It is my honor as an Advanced-Certified BodyTalk Practitioner and BodyTalk Access Trainer to hold the space for deep and lasting healing to occur in individuals' lives, and to witness the shifts unfold and ripple in so many positive ways in all aspects of people's lives.  It has been an incredible, rewarding adventure to bring many individuals together in uncovering their own powerful skills by coordinating BodyTalk courses through the International BodyTalk Association.  Words do not even describe the amazing, heart-centered individuals that I have come to attract in all aspects of my life path since becoming involved in this modality. I am also super thrilled by the birthing and continuation of the Pay-It-Forward SWIRL program since October, 2015, that has been helping me to keep the energy swirling to participate in the providing of Advanced BodyTalk for more people who present in dire health and financial need.  It was a delight to host at my previous office in Sioux Falls, SD, open bi-monthly BodyTalk Access group-tap (pay-it-forward) events as well as many, many study/practice-groups for the many heart-centered individuals who became inspired to train in BodyTalk themselves in the area.  It is an even bigger delight to know that Tracy Saboe, CBP, is continuing this tradition in Sioux Falls at my original office space, even after my family relocated to Missouri toward the end of 2017.  :) 
 Prior to moving, it had been an honor for me to volunteer for several years as the Vice President  and East River Representative for the non-profit, 
BodyTalk South DakotaAnd I am super excited to currently be living and practicing BodyTalk in a very special location in Northeastern Missouri, called Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage.  My daughters and I are literally immersed in a 20+ year living demonstration project for the cultivation of sustainability practices, taking place on 280 acres of the Dancing Rabbit Land Trust in conjunction with an education-based non-profit, The Center for Sustainable and Cooperative Culture.  Getting to experience this project beyond the weekly newsletters was a dream of mine over a decade ago when I first learned of it, but over 11 years of debilitating, painful low back issues that started when I was 19 prevented me from even trying to visit it back then.  But no longer.   :)  My low back has been not only pain-free for 7 years now (since first getting BodyTalk sessions), but my entire spine is also stronger, more stable and more flexible than even when I was a teenager (since incorporating the 10-minute BodyTalk Access routine into my morning practice).  I literally play on the Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage ultimate frisbee team, sprinting all over the place, 2-3 days per week!   Since the very first BodyTalk class I took in 2012, I have had a vision of the whole of humanity stepping into its power to healing itself from the inside out - on all levels.  Having been raised in mainstream, Western culture, this vision includes a much healthier and empowered Western society where there is literally (a) an integration of BodyTalk into first-responder training, (b) all emergency room workers trained in at least BodyTalk Access, (c) at least one BodyTalk Access Technician in every household- handling and preventing some 60%-80% of health care challenges  week to week in their own homes, and (d) at least one BodyTalk Practitioner-in-Training on every city block - able to at least muscle-check which of many Certified and Advanced-Certified BodyTalk Practitioners practicing WholeHealthcare full-time and other health care providers in the neighborhood that are best-matched for the job at hand.  Part of my current mission, though, is to focus on getting this powerful system into the hands and hearts of the entire sustainable, intentional community sector, so that worries around health care concerns are no longer a deterrent for so many people who would otherwise choose to live at a place like Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage or any one of the many intentional communities formed and forming all over the world.  We are living at a special time in consciousness, and if you are reading these words, thank you for your participation to whatever degree your soul calls. 
May many more in our communities make BodyTalk part of their lives. And may I be of genuine support for all who choose to - whether exclusively for personal development or for embarking on the incredibly rewarding path as a BodyTalk practitioner yourself.  Namaste
