Lydia Harutoonian

Lydia is a dedicated student of Joanna’s and the WTR. She began this work seven years ago after meeting Joanna at the California Institute of Integral Studies where she recently received her Masters degree in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness.  She has facilitated the WTR in many different locations such as the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, the Dine reservation in New Mexico, Bali, and all around the Bay Area. She is also a proficient musician, sharing both her violin and vocal skills to bring in medicinal music for our times. She currently tours with Ayla Nereo and Wildlight. Lydia is also studying depth psychotherapy at Pacifica Graduate Institute, deepening her work in ecopsychology and archetypal psychology
“I have great confidence in Lydia Harutoonian as a facilitator of the Work That Reconnects, and am delighted that she is bringing her many gifts to helping people find their strength in addressing the global crises of our time.  Having known her both as a student and a colleague in this work, I can testify to her acuity of mind, moral strength, and depth of intuitive wisdom.  It has been a joy to have her accompany me and support me in workshops and public events, where her violin has provided a spontaneous deepening of experience to all, as has her capacity for keen and genuine presence.  I know that the same rare qualities pervade the group work she conducts on her own.” - Joanna Macy, Ph.D
