My name is Anthony Donohue, and I facilitate Body Dialogue on Social Concerns: a somatic inquiry and centring group process to examine and resource the body’s responses to societal challenges.
Made In loving memory to Anthony
Social issues can contribute to disturbance and stress in our lives. To resolve and gain clarity on a social concern that's presently engaging us, we need to notice our personal affiliation with it and sense how we can be empowered to take action in the form of a specific intention.
Body Dialogue is teaching us to work with a felt sense approach-internally and externally, grounding a seemingly overwhelming or convoluted issue. We use a clearing process to articulate the best use of one’s focus at this particular time and craft a resourceful response.

Anthony was a gentle and generous soul when I was able to experience his presence in my practice session.
" It was always a treat to share space with him. He was so kind, gentle, and deeply attuned"
He was a warm-hearted, like-minded soul. May his light continue to shine bright through his website and memories of those whose lives he touched.

I hope Anthony can make his journey in peace and with courage. The short time I spent with him I could learn from his generosity and authenticity.
May his Spirit relate and continue in all of us and our Spirits, in the ONENESS we really are.
