The world lost a bright light in September of 2022. We are still in shock that our wonderful colleague, teacher and friend Edie Jane Eaton passed away suddenly after a short illness. We are dedicating the 2022 “Cell-ebration” in her honor and memory. We wish she could have joined us in person.
Edie Jane came to TTouch in the 1980’s on the suggestion of her Feldenkrais teacher. After one demo she was hooked and would become one of our beloved instructors.
Edie Jane was a phenomenal teacher and had a knack for balancing rational, concrete thought and her intuition and spirit. She was driven by curiosity for knowledge and possessed a calm, kindness that put everyone she met at ease. Well-spoken and full of wry observations, Edie Jane loved the natural world, a geologist by training, and had a thirst for adventure, she could count rally car racing as a hobby!
As a friend, she was fun, full of life and always interested in learning more. She had an eye for detail like no other. Edie Jane took many groups to Botswana on safari, horseback and otherwise, and loved the magic of the African bush. Her latest trip had been in May of this year and by all accounts it was spectacular.
We will miss Edie Jane more than words can describe. She changed the lives of so many people and animals over the decades she shared the Tellington TTouch around the world and she was an integral part of the development of the work. Her pivotal analogy of “Shedding Some Candlelight on Resistance” will continue to be shared in her memory.
Her family shared her obituary here.
We have been comforted with the wonderful stories and thoughts shared in our community as we have remembered Edie Jane. We will never forget her and we hope that she knew how life changing she was for so many.
