Christa Cocciole (USA/Germany) fell in love with the 5 Rhythms about 30 years ago. Around the same time she began to weave her skills as a Dancer and Choreographer into her work as a Systemic Integrative Body Psychotherapist with a specialty in Trauma. She has worked in settings such as reconciliation projects during and after the Bosnian War, community cultural organisations, Universities as well as Conferences and International dance theatre companies. Currently she is working in an adult psychiatric clinic in Berlin as well as in her private Practice and teaching Embodiment internationally. She integrates her therapeutic and artistic experience and spiritual practice in an approach she coined “Radical Presence – moving with playful compassion”.
