SIMONE ALEXANDRINO SOUZA is the co-founder of Moving Into Peace and has been a contributor since 2005.
Simone’s involvement began with her great admiration for Antoinette’s work and as a result she soon experienced the benefits through her practice as a Qigong student. Simone quickly became a passionate supporter in the development of Moving Into Peace. Simone practiced for several years, and with the training and knowledge began teaching Qigong classes of her own in retirement homes. Her classes focused on stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, increasing vitality and physical flexibility, releasing stress, restoring mental calmness and maintaining inner balance.
Born and raised in Brazil, Simone is an artist, her diverse background began with earning a degree in Communication at the University of Uberaba, Brazil, followed by a master degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica in 2009 year. Underlying all of Simone's experience is her work as an artist, who creates compositions rooted in the expression of subconscious emotion. Her work integrates many aspects of her consciousness into drawn lines and patters with multiple possibilities. Her wok is meditative, unplanned and organic, a physically realized version of the stream of consciousness.
