“Each day we are challenged to be a healthy soma in a body-phobic culture - to breathe, move, wiggle and hum with delight is our birthright and our destiny.” - Jamie

“Jamie's workshops have felt spacious, light, tender and kind. I feel wholeheartedly nourished and closer to myself through his work. There is always something new I understand. I return home inspired and curious.” – Clarissa, Artist and Teacher

"Jamie's teachings and technologies of amplification, slowing down, bringing in breath or sound, repeating micro movements that come from a felt inner sensing, or working with opposite impulses (to name just a few!) help to bring a more intimate relationship with what is alive in the moment and what maybe wants to be born." - Jeremy, psychotherapist
