About Caitlin M. Gill

Caitlin’s passion is to provide a safe, sacred space for persons to access their authenticity through meditation, movement, creativity and play. She believes that spending these focused moments together cultivating self-awareness, authentic witnessing, compassion, and curiosity, like a drop of water on a still lake, will ripple out to positively touch and deepen not only our personal lives, but our intimate communities and the collective whole.

 

Starting her journey as a performance artist and clown, Caitlin M. Gill is now currently in pursuit of her Ph.D. in Transformative Inquiry at California Institute of Integral Studies. Her choice of study is expansive with ranging influences, including:

In 2010, she received her BFA in Performance from Naropa University where she trained in Contemplative Dance Practice, Dharma Art, Mary Overlie's Viewpoints practice, non-violent communication, and improvisational ensemble group movement. She was introduced to Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche's teachings of Sacred Warriorship and Crazy Wisdom and took her Buddhist Refuge Vows in the winter of 2012. Her journey has been deepened through the experience of grief & Dark Night of the Souls, clown work, and in her various performances.
