MY APPROACH AND SERVICES DRAW UPON MY DIVERSE EXPERIENCE OF SUPPORTING OTHERS FROM A PLACE OF LOVE, COMPASSION, AND FREE FROM JUDGEMENT. I HAVE HAD THE GOOD FORTUNE OF STUDYING WITH SOME AMAZING TEACHERS.

"Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. The flags do not carry prayers to gods, which is a common misconception; rather, the Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space."

UNIQUE EXPERIENCES

“Jen’s hospitality is unparalleled. It’s a warm and inviting place to experience new learning, renewal and healing. Thank you for hosting me and for inviting me to present Living after Birth Trauma. I hope to return in the near future. Simply an incredible experience.<3

“Jennifer’s mom & babe retreats truly reset you. She has a gift in holding the space for mothers to connect and feel renewed. The warmth of the yoga, soft chatter, and the home cooked nutritious and scrumptious meal, all come together to send you home with a fresh smile on your face. Her loving touch is also present, and her experience in knowing how full ones hands can feel, by bringing you a warm tea to your yoga mat so you don’t have to fetch it, and a refill of your meal so you may sit and nurse and chat. Truly a beautiful experience!
