Workshop Presenter Bios

Andre Ignacio Dimapilis Andre Ignacio Dimapilis is a Filipinx-American culture-bearing performance artist, sound facilitator, and peaceful warrior.  Andre’s journey with sound started in 2007 with the didgeridoo, performing on stage with blues, funk, hip-hop and dance artists. Then, he shifted his focus to communicating with the divine by blowing spirit through the didgeridoo during meditations. While listening to divine Spirit and intuition, Andre was guided to use other indigenous and traditional instruments for setting intentions during ritual, ceremony, and spiritual work. He is the founder of Kalayaan Sound LLC. Kalayaan is the Filipinx word for freedom, using sound for participants to re-connect and re-member the freedom of their spirit. Andre infuses ancestral wisdom and indigenous knowledge for participants to listen with their body, connect with spirit, and have clear intentions during sound therapy sessions for a personalized and meaningful experience. 

Jenifer Trivelli, author, speaker, and founder of WiseMind Educational Services, is on a tenacious mission to get life-changing tools in the hands of young people (and the adults who care for them) using her unique  blend of simple neuroscience and somatic (mind-body) practices for resilience. Since she was young, Jenifer has been interested in how people get wired to do the things they do, and what guides them towards well-being. That curiosity (and many chance happenings) led her to a graduate degree in counseling and training in youth and adult yoga certification programs. She has offered consultation and training to both parents and schools in the Salem area since 2007.

Jenifer authored Peanut and the BIG Feelings (2014) and co-authored Jamie's Gift: A Young Teen's Guide to Fears, Worries, and Other Life Challenges (Like Being Irritated By Other People) (2016). In 2019, she developed TIME:IN, a resiliency curriculum currently being offered in local classrooms through grant funding. Local folks may have read Jenifer’s articles in Willamette Valley Kids & Family Magazine and in Huckleberry Magazine the years they were in print.

Jenifer has been interviewed on podcasts, for newspaper articles, and on KGW’s Portland Today. In 2020, she was invited to speak at what would be the largest conference in history, The Embodiment Conference, to present her blend of information and tools for youth resilience. Most recently, Jenifer put together and trained a team of heart-centered educators who offer individual emotion coaching support to students through a collaboration with Salem-Keizer Public Schools.

Brianna Taylor Brianna Taylor (she/her) is a multidisciplinary movement artist, choreographer, facilitator, yoga instructor and bodyworker born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Her work as an artist and educator is rooted in collaboration and community care, improvisation and experimentation, and practices of listening to and honoring the wisdom of the body. Brianna movement history has been deeply enriched by the study of many forms including Modern/Contemporary, West African and Afro-Cuban dance, Improvisation, Yoga, Tai Chi, Salsa, Flamenco, Butoh, and various somatic practices. Her performance and teaching work have been shared around and outside the U.S., and her facilitation reflects an eclectic blend of her moving, creative and performance history. Brianna believes that movement, breath and creative practice holds a rich possibility for us to connect deeper to ourselves and each other, and she aims to facilitate spaces that uplift and celebrate our wholeness. Her intention as a facilitator/practitioner is to hold space for individuals to find openness and ease in their bodies,  and she encourages an environment of listening and nurturing, playfulness and love.

Brianna is the co-director and caretaker of Confluence Arts Center. She holds an MFA in Choreography from the UNC Greensboro, as well yoga teaching certifications from the Laughing Lotus in San Francisco, and the Eldorado Mountain Yoga Ashram in Colorado, totaling over 500 hours. Brianna is also currently an adjunct professor of dance at the University of Florida. She studied traditional Thai Massage at the Naga Center in Portland, OR and she trained and practiced the Outer Reach method in NYC, an assisted stretching technique created by Toni Mealas. Additionally, Brianna is a level three attuned Reiki practitioner under the guidance of master teacher Sky Bradshaw. She honors all of the teachers she’s had the privilege to learn from along the way. 

Patrick Allen, Licensed Acupuncturist, Doctor of Acupuncture

“By a series of coincidences and fateful happenings in my life, I stumbled upon Chinese Medicine and instantly heard my calling. After completing my studies at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, I now can say that I love what I do—healing people through acupuncture, herbal medicine, and lifestyle guidance. It is an honor to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives. After completing traditional schooling at OCOM, I traveled to Nanjing, China, to study herbal medicine at different hospitals throughout the city. The most advanced research in Oriental Medicine still takes place in China, so it was an invaluable experience to learn straight from the source. I learned strategies and modalities for treatment during the program, which significantly impacted how I practice and treat patients today.  

I treat everything from elbow pain to endometriosis, and I do have some focus areas. At OCOM, I was a part of a research project comparing the efficacy of Chinese herbs and acupuncture with live birth rates in women undergoing in vitro fertilization. The research clearly demonstrated that Chinese medicine is effective in the treatment of infertility. In addition to infertility treatment, I’m also experienced in treating mental health issues, issues specific to women’s health, autoimmune disorders, and pain. My goal in my practice, and my life as a whole, is to help people live their best life possible.”
