Dory has an MSEd, with a focus on writing and literacy. A writer, musician, and filmmaker, she has spent much of her life working in the arts and has a particular interest in the power of writing, sound, and visual storytelling as healing and integrative practices. Originally from the tropics, she now resides in Pittsburgh where she works in higher education and provides ongoing Holotropic Breathwork® workshops.
Dory Perry (teacher, module facilitator) began her journey with Holotropic Breathwork® in 2001, after attending a weekend workshop, led by Stan Grof and Tav Sparks. On the heels of a cancer diagnosis and driven by the need for meaning and a more expansive perspective, her experience was profound and life affirming/altering. She began attending weeklong Grof Transpersonal Training (GTT) modules, integrating the work into her life as an ongoing spiritual practice and developing a deep trust in the work and in the inner, ancient wisdom within each of us. In 2005, she was certified as a Holotropic Breathwork® facilitator. As a GTT staff member, she regularly serves on facilitating teams for residential training modules.
