  • You may wish to send in a written piece to be read out on your behalf, or you may wish to represent yourself, or being present is what your comfortable with. You are all welcome to attend.

Please email janine@janinemccarthy.com.au if you wish to be involved in the order of service.

A tribute by Advanced Instructor Bruce Stark, the snippets were taken from the current OBA newsletter article about Allison.

‘In December 2023, our Ortho-Bionomy community lost a dear friend and colleague who was profoundly significant in the establishment and growth of Ortho-Bionomy in Australia. Allison Baensch was the first Australian to become an instructor and, through her commitment and skills in connecting people with the community, she was instrumental in planting the seeds that would facilitate the awareness and founding of what is now our Ortho-Bionomy community.

Allison contributed greatly to the grounding of Ortho-Bionomy work in Australia through her practice, her teaching, her community building with students, practitioners, and instructors, and through her constant conviction that we all have within us an understanding of our innate health, wisdom, and capacity for balance. We will miss her gentle presence and her optimism, and we send her our appreciation for holding this community in steadfast high regard and love.’ Bruce Stark

  Trauma Resolution with Bruce Stark - Adelaide

Accessing the Resources for Integration There are many ways in which the physiological and emotional components of unresolved trauma can remain held within the body's tissues and nervous system. For some people there is an unsettling in their body which isn't able to access the usual easing and calming responses that we would experience in a session. Sometimes the resources of the body to address trauma aren't available resulting in an exaggeration of the symptoms or distress.
