"I recently attended the Writing from the Heart workshop with Jewel. It was a day of pure inspiration, nourishment and insight. Jewel provided a safe and supportive space for participants to explore and express whatever may be arising in their experience. There was total acceptance, no judgement and deep care for us all. Taking the day away from busy commitments to sit and write in this free flowing manner about my life, or just whatever came in the present moment, in a setting of peace and tranquility, was deeply nourishing, enriching and healing. I was delighted and surprised at what came, and Jewel gave us total permission to share if we felt to, or keep our reflections private if that was what we felt was needed. Thank you Jewel for offering this gift of openhearted reflection. It was a deeply profound day that has continued to stay with me." Gaye McPhie
"Engaging in workshops and training with Jewel has been life changing. Such heart, empathy and professionalism. Thank you."
"Jewel brings incredible sensitivity and compassion into her sessions. I felt safe and held in my work with her."
"Qualities of deep acceptance and empathy come through strongly in Jewel's work!"
"I have attended numerous workshops facilitated by Jewel, and have remained in contact with her since this time as I have progressed in both my personal and professional journey over the years. Jewel is one of the most warm and empathic people I have met, and this combined with her extensive knowledge, experience, professionalism, and capacity to connect offered me a most wonderful experience in being trained by her. I believe that Jewel's strengths in these areas allowed me opportunities to grow in my own capacity for being fully with others and to allow myself to connect with my own personal strengths in order to offer high quality professional services in my work from the heart. Since completing my training with Jewel, she has been a valued guide and role model with a continued supportive presence in my journey."
