Training & experience

Hello I am Rose …

The photo gallery acknowledges a more personal sense of connection might guide your choosing too. My pronouns are they / them and I live with my partners and chosen family in East London, UK.

About Rose C Jiggens

For a simple list of trainings and CPD hours, see the concertina below. For a more personal narrative journey read Rose C Jiggens: A Professional Odyssey which contains the following sections:

  1. The Art years: 1996 – 2007
  2. The Neo Tantra years: 2008 – 2019
  3. True Self Systems: 2017 to present

“This truly was a path of transformation and in other eras it would be recognised for the substantial apprenticeship it was: an embodied, integrative, somatic and transpersonal education.”

Training and Experience CV

Family Constellations

I completed a two year family constellations practitioner training in 2017 – 18. It was led by Robert Rowland Smith and Nicola Dunn. I also had one to one family constellations sessions for several years with Edward Stopler – his work very much inspired me to train in this field.

Soul Energy Optimisation

I graduated as a mature student (I was born in 1971) with a first class BA Hons from Wolverhampton University in 2000, then an MFA from Newcastle University with two distinctions in 2002.

I taught as a visiting lecturer at Wolverhampton and Newcastle Universities, along with Northumbria and Gateshead College too. I produced publications, exhibitions, residencies commissions: and gained a prestigous Arts Council funded 6 month residency in Berlin.

In parallel to my artist life lay a two decade plus exploration of healing and spirituality, through everything from intensive Zen meditations through to Bioenergetics and Breathwork. My art career fell away in time and I have worked as a therapist and educator since 2007.

I use my art teaching skills to support practitioners wishing to birth their soul calling. Being an artist taught me how to be with the 6 foot bronze horse with wings of my imagination, when all I have is a bag of clay, some skip dived timber and 50p in the bank.

You may feel ashamed that your vision is so big and your resources so small. Bridging that gap is at once a deeply pragmatic journey – and a leap of faith – one that will bring to the surface for healing every fear that you have. Bring me visions, your bag of clay and your skip dived timber – and let’s leap!

Stuff that fits nowhere else

My supervisor is DK Green whom I chose for his broad spectrum practice from Psychotherapy all the way through to Shamanism and Tarot reading. I also value his psycho-educational approach to working with clients which accords well with my own.

For many years I sat in an intensive form of Zen meditation, channelling and psychic work: at the emminently unique healing School Helios led by visionary and mystic Greg Branson and Robin Baldock

For many years my main teacher and mentor was John Hawken of The Paths of Transformation. I remain indebted in my work to the immense amount I learned from him and the thorough education I gained with him.
