Based in Brisbane, Australia, BJ Long is a multi-disciplinary artist who has performed and facilitated with professional theatre companies and to Women’s Circles all over Australia. Firstly as an Actor and then as a Voice Specialist she was trained at NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Art). As a Speaker Mentor and through her business passion VoiceBloom: BJ has created a unique modality of work called VIBE and awakens her clients (both men and women) to the release of their inner communicator through the alignment of their Voice, Intellect, Body, Emotion & (Spirit). As a Visionary Artist she has completed her third exhibition called ‘Dreaming into Being’ in Brisbane.
BJ’s ongoing facilitation of Sacred Circles, her VIBE mentoring, passion for mythological storytelling in her modality called Sacred Physical-esque Theatre and her connection to the Visionary Art process are all inspiration for the ‘I am a Circle’ message.
Her new play, ‘I am a Circle… Part 1: The Yggdrasil’ premiered, in September 2016, at Vulcana Women’s Circus’ home at The Powerhouse in Brisbane. BJ was also honoured to perform for the Goddess Australia Conference Sydney and Earth Circles Studio Bundaberg. At the commencement of 2017 BJ went on to perform her play and present her powerful talk and workshop on ‘Women Finding Their Own Voice’ for Goddess Rising in Adelaide. Included in the South Australian adventure was an ‘I am a Circle…’ performance for magnificent women of the Riverland, outside Renmark, on a bend of The Great Murray River.
In 2017 BJ continues to perform the first of her ‘I am a Circle…’ trilogy around Australia and in September/October has been invited to perform her show at the opening of the 2017 Goddess Spirit Rising Conference in LA. She continues her travels; to perform, facilitate and speak at a yurt in Carmel, California, to Women’s Sacred Circles in Boston and in Ontario, Canada and will be a guest MC for the Women of Wisdom in Seattle.
Most recently BJ performed and facilitated her workshop for beautiful women at Welcome to The Big House in Pinbaren, a magnificent retreat in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Pallet Life in Maleny, Soul Space in Newmarket and at the Light Centre for Transformation in Newfarm. ‘I am a Circle’ performances and workshops continue in Monto (central QLD) Queensland in August.
In October BJ returns from overseas with ‘I am a Circle…’ to open the Goddess Australia Conference in Sydney.
BJ shares the ancient chant:
‘I am a Circle I am Healing You. You are a Circle You are Healing Me’ with women everywhere.
