“ I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process — an integral function of the universe.” - Buckminster Fuller
"I help people and organizations establish new patterns of behavior for relating to themselves and others with a mindful engagement of the body and its senses. Nothing inspires me more than seeing the spark of hope in someone’s eyes when they discover that the creative power of change is already alive within them.
The ocean, the mountains, and the wilderness of my soul are my greatest teachers. The natural world has taught me how to go into uncertainty and return renewed with something more to offer the world than I started with. I am an explorer of unfamiliar landscapes and a student of the unknown. With a history of trauma, depression, and anxiety, as well as the evolutionary resilience of my living body, I've learned how to go the distance into the many different parts of myself and come back as a whole and healthy being, alive and connected to my family, my community and this beautiful planet.
My passion for finding a way through life’s challenges led me to getting a Masters in Somatic Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and to my work, serving the wholeness of others, as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, performance coach, and organizational consultant in Los Angeles California." -Justin Hartery LMFT
