Events & Workshops with Zjamal Xanitha

In my work as a facilitator it is important to me to support you to perceive in a way which develops sensitivity and adds depth, radiance and engagement in your life. To help you

Meet yourself with tenderness, compassion and kindness
Reconnect to your life, your beloveds, your community
Be embodied joyfully, creatively, playfully, imaginatively,
To really LIVE your experiences

In all my events and workshops, we access a deep inner awareness in subtle physiological states toward an integration of mind, body and spirit. I invite you to experience your body as your primary intelligence, opening to its eloquent transformative power. By harvesting language, movement and image as resources for self awareness, you find deeply embodied poetic states. Any experience can open a gateway to the sacred within life. Inside the creative process you can come to honour, respect and celebrate yourself, and your connection to the Earth of which you are a part. You experience first-hand the continuum between your body and the body of the world. Together, we develop deep body wisdom and a playful sense of the profound applications of improvisation to life itself.

My Commitment To You

I am committed to teaching in co-creation, attuning to our reciprocity, and acting as a conduit for the experience you came to find. I offer my respect for the radical interconnectedness of human beings and how deeply we can be there for each other. I honour that all our processes are part of nature and are guided by the wisdom of the Earth.

Contact Zjamal To Enquire About An Event

Zjamal was profoundly instrumental in giving me the awareness and the subsequent ground to locate and explore my emotional heartland. She offered me her unique insight allowing my internal world to blossom and reach the emotional peaks and depths I could not have conceived of previously. To say I am grateful for the learning and opportunity would be such an understatement.

Ian, 57, Social Worker/Psychotherapist

“She is an inspirational instructor who demands personal responsibility in her students. Wonderful sense of knowledge. She knows how to get people moving in every sense of the word!”

Linda A, Philsophy & Religion MA student CIIS, San Fransico

I loved, loved, loved this class! She is funny yet disciplined, creative yet well researched, supportive yet a task master, open to students ideas. She embodies what she teaches, and brings to class her keen intuition and alive energy.

Laurie B, Philosophy & Religion MA student, CIIS, San Fransico

“Zjamal’s teaching made me realise that anyone and everyone have endless creativity.”

Anna M, Performing Arts School , Auckland , New Zealand

She blends the archetypal and sacred elements with grounded experiential work in a profound way. Zjamal teaches a balance of depth and wisdom and discipline with openness, humour and compassion. Her work is innovative, extremely creative and at the same time practical and useful.

Terese Gjernes , MA , San Francisco

Working with Zjamal is like a huge sensitisation process. She taught me ways of being with nature I’ve never experienced before. Her approach took me to an intensely deep level of embodiment, and taught me ways of devising somatic interventions.

Hannabella, Brisbane Australia

Zjamal has worked for me on a variety of occasions, and on every occasion I have been delighted with the resulting collaboration. Zjamal is a highly intelligent and articulate artist and she brings to her work professional expertise and creativity of the highest order. She is also an extremely caring person, caring for the environment and caring for her fellow human beings. These, I believe, are extraordinary qualities which are an indication of a mature and highly evolved artist.

Mark Bromilow, Director

Zjamal has a unique knack of meeting me where I am, with just the right delicate balance of support and challenge. Zjamal teases out with great skill the emergent next step in my learning and development as a therapist. Her care is deep and the generosity with which she shares her embodied wisdom is inspiring. I have enormous respect and gratitude for the way Zjamal has nurtured and empowered me to find my own therapeutic skills and style.”

Nathan, Gestalt Therapy Brisbane, Trainee

Zjamal modelled a framework for clinical interactions and treatment that really broadened my horizons. I observed the trust women with trauma histories were able to place in her, and learnt the relevance of warmth and laughter. Her support during ruptures helped me see that our wounds are of sacred service to us”.  

Daniel, Family Therapist, Maroochydore

“Without Zjamal’s supervision and leadership I would not be the therapist I am today. Zjamal offers creativity, wisdom, and humour to bring about deep emotional shifts which have greatly enriched both my practice and my life. Her supervision is precise yet gentle, enabling me to see where I might disconnect, and inspiring me to keep going”. 

Kelly, Gestalt Therapy Brisbane, Trainee
