Jen on the Pyramid of the Moon, Teotihuacan, Mexico
Hi! My name is Jen.
I help people ignite their dreams and transform their lives.
I was born very sensitive. I could feel things others around me couldn’t. It took me many years to realize that my kind of perception had a name—I was what is often called a “shaman’. My dear friend and teacher Francis Rico shares how shaman isn’t a noun—it’s a verb. In the ancient Siberian verb based language, shaman means vibrating with high level energy. And when we “shaman”—we vibrate at higher levels of frequency, seeing different possibilities from our low vibration perspective. That’s what I help my clients do—vibrate higher and bring their deepest heart’s dreams into form.
I am fascinated about what creates consciousness, perception, what we think of as “us”. My search led me many places, including Ayurveda, Qi Gong, Buddhist philosophy, meditation, cosmologies, and wisdom traditions from around the world. When a friend gave me a copy of “I Am That” by Nisargadatta Maharaj, my heart was deeply touched. In his words I heard the indivisible underlying unity that connects us all singing out to all who would hear.
Along the way, I also dove into Modern Capitalism and entrepreneurship, building web sites, writing business plans, getting a California Real Estate Broker’s License and raising $5 million in capital for land development.
I’ve traveled too far and wide, and lived all over the US, including Hawai’i. It helps me see a bigger picture than just one culture’s bias.
I spent 3 weeks on the Caribbean coast of Columbia in Parque Tayrona in 1996 when I was 23. With no electricity, located remotely in the jungle, and with almost no people, Tayrona profoundly transformed me. I attuned to eternal rhythms of tide and moon, learning to listen deeply to the elements and the nature spirits. I learned later that above me in the mountains was the Kogi tribe, one of the only tribes to escape the conquest. They later came out and made a documentary warning us—little brother—of our actions and how they were destroying the delicate balance of nature. I felt incredibly blessed to be there and to take into my bones that medicine.
I listen for my clients connections to the life signal, the higher vibration—the present moment and what is wishing to come alive in them. I help them recognize it, fan it’s flames, and remove it’s obstacles. We dive deep and bring back treasures for us to structure and bring into their worlds.
I feel profoundly grateful for the beautiful relationships I have with my clients. The wild beauty of their hearts inspires me and reminds me of the preciousness of every one of us. The still quiet voices rising in us—and the roaring not-to-be-denied ones—ARE life responding to itself. The more we honor our own wild hearts and authentic movement, the more we bring the healing medicine our planet and our world needs.
I live in Billings, Montana, a few hours away from Yellowstone National Park. Big sky, sweeping vistas, gorgeous nature—all fill me up and bring me great joy. I work with people nationally and internationally, and treasure the paradox of intimate digital connection across the wide divide of land and culture.
Thank you for being here and reading this. The divine in me recognizes and honors the divine in you. I’m so happy you are here!
The following are some of the core tenets for our work together:
You are not static. Many wise men and women in the past have observed the attributes and qualities of foods, herbs, medicines, landscapes, environments, elements, and their effects on the human body, spirit, emotions, and mind. We can build on their wisdom applying it to our everyday lives. When we harmonize with that wisdom in our choices, we build a solid foundation from which to transform our lives into the vibrant reality we want it to be.
Living a life you love is a practice. Recognizing what supports your growth and what needs to be eliminated is part artform, part science experiment. Identifying and aligning with the actions and qualities that nurture your inner genius takes courage, curiosity, and commitment to bringing forth the full flowering of your best self. “Tracking” is the tool I use to help you recognize both what is yearning to come forth and what needs to be pruned away to allow the new growth. You could call it editing for your Soul. As we align with and let go into the mystery of creation, we co-create in a process far more intelligent and beautiful then we could have ever imagined. With humor, wonder, and conviction, we follow and listen to the truth, the Light of our Awareness, above all else–especially our limited beliefs, conditioning, and habits.
Presencing the future. When we presence the future, we consciously dance with creation, choosing to embrace our higher potential with clarity, focus and awareness. We open our minds, hearts, and spirits to what is yearning to be born through us as us. We consciously observe in both our inner and outer worlds the clues of our greater destiny calling. Too often, our limiting beliefs keep us from observing these delicate tendrils of new life emerging. Or we dismiss them as too small or weak, or irrelevant to our current circumstances. But when we consciously partner with our highest destiny, we recognize those small sprouts as the tangible signs of our growth. We tend them, giving them the light of our awareness to grow strong and viable. We also weed out our old beliefs and identities that would impede their full flowering.
Embracing our unique blueprint. I work with many systems to help people recognize their unique blueprint. When we recognize our unique strengths and weaknesses, we can accept ourselves on a deeper level. We no longer look outside to validate our personal experiences. We realize that we truly are individuals, and that what makes us flourish may not be the same as the people we try to emulate. So much of what we criticize ourselves for is simply not accepting our unique expression for what it is–our own. We are a paradox. Like the wave and the ocean, we are all made of water. But to truly settle into our lives with grace, ease, and awareness, we need to recognize the unique role we are here to play–the “wave” we are–and embrace it with love and joy.
Life is a dynamic interplay between dualities–sound and silence, movement and stillness, the manifest and the unmanifest. Far too often we focus on the sound without recognizing silence as the source from which it springs. Similarly, the movement and noise which we call our lives happens against the backdrop of an eternally present silent awareness which simply is, that contains all phenomena within it. The more we pay attention to this timeless essence, the more we discover what saints and sages of all ages point to: that the richness and love we seek from outside has actually been there all along, as the foundation of our pure awareness.
To assist your transformative movement, I call upon many systems from around the world to support the intuitive wisdom arising from our work together. These include Ayurveda, Qi Gong, meditation, Buddhist philosophy, and numerous personality blueprint systems.
