Photo of J'aime ona PangaiaJ'aime ona Pangaia, director of Voice Dialogue Center NW, is a veteran consciousness teacher and facilitator of Voice Dialogue Work with 33 years practicing and teaching it. She originally began her training in NYC in 1986, and later in California with Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone, creators of Voice Dialogue in 1988. Starting in 1994, she had annually been invited to guest teach / facilitate as senior staff at their own week-long advanced training sessions for over 20 years, until they retired.
Her book, An Introduction to Voice Dialogue: Finding the Benefit of People Who Bug You, is used in Voice Dialogue teaching programs worldwide. She teaches advanced Voice Dialogue facilitator programs, including the form of Group Voice Dialogue that she innovated.
She teaches Voice Dialogue in Buddhist settings, (e.g., monastic and lay spiritual communities), universities and corporate development programs and international, privately organized programs. She created the 2 year Transformational Arts Program which she teaches both in Portland and in Thailand. This experiential program is the foundation for training to become a Voice Dialogue facilitator and eventual teacher.
Her teaching work and writings incorporates non dualism, in which the dis-identification practice of Voice Dialogue can be used to advantage.
"We consider J'aime to be one of our most senior Voice Dialogue facilitators and teachers. She is extremely creative and brings to the work an amazing breadth of experience in many areas of consciousness work." - Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone
