Hoji is notably trained in counselling, expressive arts and movement group facilitation, bio-emotive clearing, acting for film and television, and T3Circling.
Her focus as an expressive arts and bio-emotive facilitator is to weave together healing and mindful movement through creative expression and emotional release.
Hoji worked many years in the inner city, running a massive community art-space and and worked as a front-line worker in foster care for 5+ years. She continues her work as an artist. She is a coach, facilitator, and woman-behind-the-scenes at The Bio-Emotive Framework. She is a practitioner of Buddha Dharma in both Zen and Tibetan Dharma under various teachers.
I recently participated in a healing circle that was facilitated by Ali, and I left that experience feeling a deep sense of relief. I walked away hopeful and filled with gratitude. I highly recommend Ali to anyone who is seeking help resolving interpersonal conflicts. Her ability to perceive and acknowledge different dynamics, as they emerge, was so instrumental in getting at the root of the issues at hand. Ali has a unique capacity to hold space for all stakeholders involved, honouring the experiences and feelings of all parties. I have no doubt that her gift for creating safe spaces gave rise to the vulnerability and ultimately, truth-honouring, that emerged within our circle. It was also very meaningful to me that she guided a process of personal accountability in a very critical moment within the circle. I felt a massive release as the truth came forward. I believe that we were all able to delve as deeply as we did because of Ali’s impeccable balance between being forthright and being compassionate. I would definitely recommend Ali to friends and family. – Accalia Robertson
I’ve never met anyone like Ali. She’s a master of the Bio-Emotive Framework, an amazing teacher and a devoted listener. If you want an honest, respectful guide to open the door on improving your relationships with yourself and others, Ali will teach you.” -Lois K.
“…the way the material was delivered and facilitated by Ali. She was dropped in, tuned in, caring for the group while also caring for the individuals. She led by example, showing up authentically. She stayed on track, while also veering off still within the topics, but to explore where the group wanted to go.” -Melissa A.
