Rosemary Quinn fell in love with Body Tales in the 1980s, and it has held a central place in her life ever since. She is deeply grateful to Olivia Corson for this reliable process for connecting with self and other, and creating public intimacy through personal ritual theater. Rosemary has offered Body Tales groups, workshops and performances in Chico, California, since the late 1990s. She holds an Honors degree in History from UC Davis and received an Arts Grant from the City of Chico for her original play, A HEART GREATER THAN FEAR, relating the story of woman suffrage. She is also a skilled practitioner of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques).
