Billie (Jugat Joti Kaur) has been on a spiritual path for over 20 years.
After experiencing many struggles in her early life including trauma, chronic anxiety and addiction she turned to yoga, meditation and spirituality to find relief from suffering and support her in her recovery.
Billie has many years of experience teaching Kundalini Yoga, Hatha, Yin and Beyond Addictions Yoga as well as practicing Usui & Shamanic Reiki, Sound Healing, BioTuning and many other healing modalities.
She is a Certified Compassionate Inquiry Therapist, Certified Trauma Informed Somatic Therapist, Certified Shamanic Life Coach, Certified Psychedelic Guide & Integration Coach as well as a Certified Insight Meditation Teacher.
Billie has a deep respect for the teachings of Shamanism, Buddhism, Hinduism and all other Spiritual Traditions and is honoured to have studied with wise and compassionate teachers including Jack Kornfield, Tara Brach, Dr. Gabor Mate, Sat Dharam Kaur and many others.
Billie offers her experience and knowledge in hopes of inspiring others on their journey towards personal freedom. Billie is known for her authentic, non-judgmental and compassion-centered teaching. Availing herself to continuous philosophical education from various spiritual disciplines, she integrates meditation with self-inquiry therapies, applying ancient wisdom to our contemporary western world in a useful and understandable way.
She encourages growth of the physical and spiritual self, citing the interconnectedness to each other,to the world and to the universe at large.
"My experience with Billie has been extraordinarily transformative.
To be honest, I do not think that words will do it justice, but I will do my best. My educational background is rooted in an extensive ‘modern' western medical approach, so I was particularly skeptical coming into this method of healing.
My experience with Billie has not only been significant personally, but also professionally. I have been looking for ways to incorporate this true, authentic, and incredibly necessary form of healing into my own clinical practice and I have been recommending that my patients and colleagues do the same.
Our medical system is severely lacking in spirituality.
In particular, I have been recommending Billie.
Her extensive knowledge, passion and experience are also backed by a natural gift and a calling to be a healer. She has guided me through the turbulent process of repressed and unresolved trauma with compassion and genuine attentiveness.
Whether you are looking to resolve trauma or in search of personal growth, I highly recommend Billie as your healer and your guide through that process."
