Rita is creator of and lead facilitator for Kind and Wise Nights, Brilliant Healing medicine retreats and transformative week-long healing intensives. She is the weaver of somatic relational trauma-informed facilitation, attachment education, embodied practices with the therapeutic and ceremonial use of healing medicines. She blends humour and rigour in a conscious way and practices kindness and is humbled by what it takes to decolonize the mind and body. She is profoundly grateful to be surrounded by a dedicated team of humans. If she weren’t doing what she is doing, she would be working for Amnesty International. Her favourite festival is the Fairy Tales Queer Film Festival.
