“The greatest gift you will ever receive is the gift of loving and believing in yourself. Guard this gift with your life. It is the only thing that will ever truly be yours.” -Tiffany Loren Rowe
HELLO! I’M JESSICA.
I teach presence, acceptance and non-judgement.
I BELIEVE MEDITATION SHOULD BE ACCESSIBLE FOR EVERYONE, especially beginners or those who have trouble sitting in stillness with themselves.
WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE IS YOU ARE ENOUGH. JUST AS YOU ARE. You have nothing to prove. BEing You is enough. The world needs your good heart and I’m so glad you are here.
I WANT TO LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE EVERYONE KNOWS THEY ARE VALUABLE AND FEELS FREE TO BE THEMSELVES. I encourage you to… Embrace yourself with compassion + grace. Rewrite your personal narrative. Speak your truth without apology. Live with greater joy, authenticity + freedom.
MY HEART, LIFE & WORK
9 Things about me in no particular order…
EVERYTHING I CREATE & TEACH in my online courses, live classes, and guided meditations comes directly from my heart to yours – with love, kind intention and joyful passion. I respond to every question, comment, and email I receive because I want you to feel truly cared for, genuinely loved and deeply accepted. Exactly as you are.
IF YOU DON’T WANT TO DIE AN UNLIVED LIFE, and instead live from the highest version of yourself, I created a 90-day 1:1 Coaching Program just for you! It’s a practical + down-to-earth program based on my personal practices + lifetime of experience to help you live a life you love, and love the life you live. If you need extra support from somewhere who’s been there, this is the way to go!
IN 2014 I GAVE A TEDxSalem TALK. For months leading up to the talk, I was riddled with anxiety at the thought of public speaking. This led to the biggest panic attack of my life. Through breathing and present-moment awareness practices, I came through it, and the subject for my TEDxTalk was born: You Are Your Greatest Ally.
I AM IN AN ALL-GIRL PUNK BAND. It was never a dream of mine to play in a band. However, I did dream of finding my tribe and empowering others to be themselves. What’s more punk rock than that? You can find our music here and Facebook page here.
MY AWAKENING HAPPENED 2005, after the birth of my first child. Since then I’ve been on the path of healing and personal growth through innumerable wellness modalities. I’ve gone to therapy, hired coaches, joined recovery groups for codependent adults + adult children of addicts, worked with several groups for how to practice healthy boundaries, and participated in dozens of courses + workshops for learning to speak my personal truth + live from my authentic self. I’ve read all these books and refer to them often in many of my teachings + private sessions.
I’VE LED OVER 500,00 STUDENTS IN MEDITATION and mindfulness practices worldwide through guided visualization, online courses, 1-on-1 coaching, and community classes over the years. It’s one of my all-time favorite things to do in the world! Read what people are saying about my teachings and meditations here.
I LAUNCHED STAY WITH YOURSELF IN 2013 as a storytelling co-op. The aim was to create a safe place for people to share their stories and find out they aren’t alone in their experiences. During that time, I also organized live storytelling events called, Stories from the Dark Side. The response was overwhelmingly positive. You can listen to a selection of the stories here.
SOMETHING NOT MANY PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT ME is that I was raised by two ex-convicts. My mom was in prison when I was a little girl. When she was released, she met my step-father who had just been released from San Quinton prison. As a kid, I went with them to visit other prisoners, feed the homeless and sometimes shelter a vagabond who showed up on our doorstep. This has played a major role in my ability to relate to humans from all walks of life. You can read My Life in Moments: A Poetic Memoir to learn more.
THE GREATEST GIFT I HAVE TO GIVE IS MY EXPERIENCE. I understand your struggle. I’ve been there too. That’s why I do what you do. You are not meant to do this alone. Thank you for BEing here and for sharing your time, presence and humanity with me. Sending you alllll the love!
