Jeanne Denney is a transpersonal and somatic therapist, a hospice worker, healer, teacher and founder of Pilgrim SoULL (School of Unusual Life Learning). Jeanne has spent years at bedsides, contributed pioneering ideas to somatic psychology, death and grief work, and has been deeply involved with creating the Art of Dying projects in New York City. She is also the author of a research project and book entitled The Effects of Compassionate Presence on the Dying.
Jeanne’s radical teaching about energy and the body helps students and clients understand themselves as natural, and become aware of how life and death processes work together through human development, including aging, illness, grief and dying. This work provides a bridge between somatic (body-centered) psychotherapies and the practices of death workers. Her ideas are derived from a wide lens of human experience and deep understanding of our mortal journey.
