ABOUT

Jaya (pronounced Jai-ya ~ nee Lori) Hollohan's bio in brief:

  • I am a facilitator of energy therapy, a mindfulness life coach, a yoga teacher, producer of conscious media and Author of the amazingly, helpful book entitled, "Who We Are When We Thrive: Remembering Happiness & Rediscovering Health" (see Shop for details!) My work helps people's energy, overall health, levels of happiness and awareness to THRIVE.
  • I enjoy working with people that are ready to shift: 1) mental/emotional patterns (from childhood, inherited, etc.) and their related influences on physical health; 2) any type of trauma and its affects on the 3 brains (head, heart and gut - in great detail), as well as mental/emotional health; and 3) patterns of conditioning that inhibit spiritual awakening.
  • I have obtained Advanced Certification as a BodyTalk Practitioner, Parama BodyTalk Practitioner, Certified yoga teacher, Mindfulness Life Coach, Cranial Sacral, Reiki practitioner, in addition to various other therapies studied. I have undertaken trauma studies with internationally known trauma expert Peter Levine PhD, and am currently studying his Professional Somatic Experiencing Training to create more space in our nervous systems and our lives.
  • I have completed a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Waterloo and an MA in Peace and Development Studies in Spain.
  • I have traveled to over 30 countries for work, play, study and long stays in monasteries, seminaries and ashrams to awaken consciousness. Intuitive gifts have been developed during this time, which serve my clients and myself extraordinarily well.
  • I have facilitated thousands of sessions that have helped people to heal on the mental, emotional, pysical and spiritual levels.

  • I have worked as a part-time consultant in International Development with the Federal Government (CIDA) for 7 years (and taught staff yoga during the lunch hour!)

Vision: to facilitate the shift of ill~adapted mental, emotional, physical and spiritual patterns so that health can thrive on all levels and the evolution of consciousness can be furthered.

BodyTalk

Overview

BodyTalk is a consciousness-based energy therapy that resets the nervous system to balances stress and resulting disease in the body, mind and spirit. It reconnects lines of communication between parts and systems so that they can resynchronize and allow the body to heal itself.
Here is an explanation of BodyTalk by its founder, Dr. John Veltheim:

Mindfulness Life Coaching

 

sad-happy-sunflowers-PV-e1403625055491

Overview

Mindfulness Coaching increases awareness about how to shift what no longer feels good! These changes are often in relation to our habits, belief systems and attitudes and their affect on our all aspects of our lives. 
Mindfulness Coaching is facilitated via mindfulness practice, bringing old, stuck beliefs into awareness, integrating related bodily sensations, guided meditations (including relaxing brain wave frequencies), etc.
Here is an example of one of the teachers' work (Bentinho Massaro) that I draw from while facilitating this work:

 

Benefits

Mindfulness Coaching integrates parts of ourselves that sabotage our overall well~being so that life is experienced with more joy and ease. It enhances clarity and our ability to flow with life, instead of against it, and unlocks our limitless potential for bringing greater happiness, health and freedom into our experience.

Training

I have been engaged in consciousness studies world~wide for over 15 years within various spiritual and academic institutions. Some of the Masters that I have spent time with are: Vietnamese Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hanh, Vedantans Ramesh Balsekar and Mooji, various Yogis (listed below), Bentinho Massaro (above), Abraham Hicks, and other great teachers that have left the body. I have also completed a Life Coach Certification Program with the Certified Coaches Federation.

 

 

Trauma Work

 

maxresdefault

Overview

Helps to discharge energy that gets locked in our nervous system when we become overwhelmed by a threat in our environment. The work of Peter Levine PhD (Author of Waking the Tiger and In an Unspoken Voice). is instrumental to facilitating this work; his theories of trauma release and practical, somatic exercises are incorporated into my practice.
Here is a video by Peter Levine that explains his Trauma Release Somatic Experiencing work:

 

 

Benefits

An experience of expansion and release of energy contained in the nervous system and throughout the entire body allowing for a more integrated, spacious, enjoyable and less reactive experience to life. A greater capacity to move out of ongoing states of immobility, overwhelm and hyperarousal that constrict the body and mind on all levels.

Training

l have read many of Peter Levine's books, completed his "Healing Trauma Online Course" and studied with him directly during a week long course entitled, "Body as Healer: New Advances in Trauma Treatment." I am currently undertaking the 3 year Professional Somatic Experiencing Training. I have also studied TraumaPractik with Tom Tomlinson and Abigail Szathmary that facilitates fascia release relating to traumatic injuries.

Yoga

 

Dancing Shiva - August 09

 

Overview

Yoga consists of various practices that help us to unite with the divine within. The body and mind comes into balance by focusing on the movement of breath and energy while practicing asana (postures), pranayama (breath control), dhyana (meditation) and eventually, transcendence (samadhi). 
I have taught hatha yoga for years at PranaShanti Yoga Centre in Ottawa, in a Federal Government Department in Gatineau and at an old school house in the woods.
Here is an example of how yoga can help us to regulate our nervous systems, emotions and physical tension with well~known Yoga Instructor Seane Corn:

 

 

Benefits

Some physical benefits of yoga include: increasing flexibility, lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons, massaging all organs, complete detoxification and excellent toning of muscles. 
The broader benefits are: harmonization of the body and mind, gentle opening of the chakras and a calmer, more adept and peaceful mind. It also reduces stagnation in the body that arises due to accumulated stress.

Training

I have studied and practiced yoga since an extended trip to India in 2006 and completed my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at the Sivananda Ashram in Quebec. I have studied with nationally renowned yoga teacher Hart Lazer and his internationally renowned teacher Ramanand Patel from India. I have also studied with internationally renowned Ashtanga Yoga teacher David Swenson, Ashaya Yoga founder, Todd Norian, Yoga of Sound artist Snatam Kaur and many more.

Dr. Don Pilipovich, Auccupuncturist, RMT and former BodyTalk Instructor, as well as two Doctors from the Centre of Biofield Sciences in Pune, India completed a study on BodyTalk distance sessions that measured real-time changes in the human energy field via photographs taken before and after sessions.
You can view those images here: what happens in a distance session!
In addition, Dr. Laura Stuve, molecular biologist, two colleagues from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and Dr. Janet Galipo, Dr. of Chinese Medicine, led a study on the efficacy of BodyTalk distance sessions in the treatment of chronic pain. The evaluation of the BodyTalk System suggests that this mind-body Complementary and Alternative Medicine significantly improved pain levels, as well as fatigue and other emotional symptoms associated with long-term chronic pain.
The following evaluation was published in the Journal of Pain Management 2015, vol. 7, #4, pp. 279 - 290: BT Chronic Pain Evaluation
