At JourneyWorks we recognize that stories are central to life. We understand that the stories we are told, and those we tell ourselves and others, shape our understanding of the lives we lead.
We know that many stories are sacred and must be honored and approached with reverence. Such stories guide us as we live our lives. They nurture us, aid us as we seek to make sense of our life path, offer hope and solace, and support us in developing relationship with that which is larger than ourselves.
We will work with you as you explore the stories that shape and enrich your life, and we will support you as you seek to find those stories that can guide you n healing.
At JourneyWorks we understand that deep healing happens with the support of community. We encourage community by offering classes, workshops, and groups in the Expressive Arts Therapies, the Arts, Reiki, and Shamanic Healing. We acknowledge the turning of the year, and our relationship to the Earth, by offering seasonal gatherings and ceremony. On occasion we work with community partners to create opportunities to work with visiting artists and healers, or to address community concerns.

More than a great trainer, Jennie facilitates tremendous amount of emotional breakthroughs in the participants. This, I have personally observed. Her dedication, clarity of thought, innovativeness and deep sensitivity to fellow participants; make her a very rare kind of teacher and guide. I have seen my group and me personally grow tremendously under Jennie’s coaching. I am delighted that Jennie is our chief mentor and know that under guidance my group will only grow further.
