About The Teacher

Jenny has been a shamanic wellness coach since 2001 and specializes in Sacred Feminine Shamanism, Mythology, and Soul Regression Hypnosis. She helps individuals transform dysfunctional eating habits, low self esteem, and negative body image into personalized Self Love Systems. She was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia and began her healing education through the Usui system of Reiki. At 17 years old, she suffered a broken back in a gymnastics competition. This 'universal time out' or 'healing crisis' was the first step into the world of shamanic transformation. Once unable to exercise, her body changed significantly. For years, Jenny struggled with the human condition: depression, anxiety, fear, loneliness, feelings of lack, and low self-esteem. She secretly battled anorexia, exercise addiction, bulimia, compulsive eating, and food addiction. Although she tried many traditional western therapies to heal her dysfunctional relationship with her body, food and life's challenges, it was not until she returned to Australia and studied indigenous healing techniques that her healing really began. During a two year apprenticeship, she learned many forms of Shamanic medicine including integrative meditation, clearing subtle body anatomy, transpersonal touch therapy, energetic cleansing/extraction, archetypal story telling, and soul retrieval techniques. In 2001, she completed her Reiki Mastership Certification with Sharron Redford while immersing herself in the philosophies of Barbara Brennan - a well known medical intuitive. Central to her healing was learning to use plant medicine and incorporating Sacred Femininity into daily practice. Jenny is a Certified Nutrition Counselor, a Soul Regression Therapist (PLRT), a Certified Massage Therapist, a Holistic Nutrition Certification from The Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York, and holds degrees in Psychology, Religious Studies & Neuroscience from the University of Colorado. Jenny is the founder of The Spirit Root, LLC and is dedicated to healing the Feminine Frequency by creating unique retreats, workshops, and personalized programs of Self Discovery. In her free time, Jenny is a MAD gardener, Urban farmer, and writer. She loves to ski, surf, and explore culinary adventures around the globe.
