Kenneth Robinson is a poet and musician, and a psychotherapist in private practice. His practice brings together art, psychology, and spirituality as a means to facilitate emotional integration following trauma. Employing dance and movement, body and breath awareness, and healing theatre, Kenneth guides others beyond the shattering consequences of trauma to a sense of wholeness and connection. He considers his work a form of performance art, and his approach is best expressed in his quote: “Freedom is not a luxury; Ecstasy is not an indulgence.”
Kenneth received a Master’s degree in Counseling and Education from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville in 1977, and a Master’s in Theological Studies from the Divinity School at Vanderbilt University in 2007.
He is a founding member of a musical group that leads kirtan, a form of meditation and worship that allows participants to move to open-hearted awareness and self-expression through sound. He has performed his poetry (individually, and in collaboration with Ana Maria Hernando) in Denver, Kansas City, Vancouver, and in his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. His book of poetry, ‘The Year of Lovemaking and Crying’, was released in 1999.
Kenneth has led scores of workshops, retreats, and trainings in body-centered psychotherapy and transpersonal approaches to healing in the U.S., Europe, Mexico, and Canada. When he took a spiritual journey to Peru in 2005 to be with Don Américo Yábar and Gayle Yábar, he was impressed and inspired by their heartfulness, poetic vision, and earth-based energy work. It is one of his great pleasures to collaborate with Ana Maria Hernando and offer others the opportunity to receive the teachings of these high-flying, down-to-earth mystics.
