Jo Standing is an accomplished author, both a virtual and professional speaker, a decade plus seasoned classroom facilitator, an everyday spiritual warrior, and a Certified Professional Coach through Rhodes Wellness College in Vancouver, Canada as well as a past student in Collaborative Conflict Resolution, Negotiation, and Mediation at The Justice Institute. She is dedicated to the path forward in the understanding and growth beyond Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. She has taught personal wellness for over 10,000 hours. In 2017, she traveled 50,000 miles around North America with the effort to bolster the well-being of our country's warriors in uniform with lively, humorous, and in-depth talks. As the daughter of an Army Veteran who mostly raised her strength is not just a word. It is a way of being. Jo believes the knowledge of how to recover the self after trauma is everyone’s birthright. She also thinks that the inner wounds of a warrior are not meant to be stuffed-away but rather used as signposts to live a full and rewarding life moving forward. Jo's work has been the subject of published articles for many years including in Natural Awakenings Magazine, USA TODAY magazine, the distinguished online venue of Elephant Journal, and she has been written about in Huff Post by Dr. Felicia Clark. She offers online and offline workshops, classes, and trainings. She is also a participant in speaking engagements that are geared toward being empowered through pain as we collectively shift as a society toward the doctor-recognized state of Post Traumatic Growth.
