Victoria Maria Moyer

Facilitating Creative Journeys

I’m Victoria.

For now, this page is where I house various bits and pieces of things I do or have done.

Some of my playwriting projects may be found here.

I have frequently worked as a theatre educator, providing a space for young people as well as adults to explore their artistic perspectives.

I am also a certified Hypnotherapist through the International Association of Counselors and Therapists. When it comes to “healing” work, my focus is on awareness, unfolding, somatic process, and making space for the magic of change. I offer my practice to groups as well as individuals.

Butoh has been a foundational practice for me, and I am excited to build on the experimental community-based work I started in summer of 2018 for this season and beyond. See flier here and e-mail thephillybutohrhizome@gmail.com to get connected.

In the past year or two I’ve started learning to play harp; I sometimes post improvisational songs here.

Another branch of my work in the world focuses on building symbiotic relationships with nature—the Earth’s biosphere and beyond. So far this takes the shape of foraging, gardening, and integrating arts/nature classes. I am eager to learn more and go deeper.
