Her logo is symbolic of this time and is the 11th hexagram of the Chinese system of Yi Jing representing “Peace”. When the spirit (the trigram of heaven) can descend into matter (the trigram of earth) it indicates that transformation is occurring and peace can ensue. The eternal flame of the “spirit” can shine through when the self is revealed.
Dianne has extensive experience as a workshop leader. She has trained secondary school teachers in health and welfare related issues, facilitated groups in self-development and led community-based meditation classes.
Her Masters’ research project “Measuring and Assessing Dissociative Phenomena in Meditators” was co-presented as a plenary paper at the 8 th International Conference of Analytic Psychology in X’ian China (2018) and at the PACFA Working with Trauma Conference in Sydney (2019).
She currently educates and supervises trainee counsellors at the Australian College of Applied Psychology.
