As a way to honor my teachers, their healing journey, and my own healing journey, I wanted to acknowledge the different lineages of healing that I have studied with. May this acknowledgement serve as a blessing to them on their continued journey through this life, and may their own healing continue to deepen, and as it does may love, peace, and abundance also deepen in their lives so they may continue to be of service to the earth and all her inhabitants. I hold so much gratitude for all of their paths and their willingness to share their journey with others. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Healing Arts Institute- Dr. James Mally and June Motzer 1993
This was the official beginning of my healing path. I attended massage school here and these two instructors taught way more than just massage. They taught about intention, love, and healing energy. I am so grateful to have been taught to heal the body with loving intention, and how to be a channel for this healing force while maintaining my own energetic boundaries. I'd also like to acknowledge that June is mom, and how truly lucky I was to have her as an instructor. She went on to open the St. Croix Center for the Healing Arts in Hudson, WI and I know was a blessing to the hundreds of students that journeyed there with her.
Federico's College of Hairstyling- Ms. Jewel and Ms. Tina 1995
I was blessed to have these beautiful beings share their knowledge and wisdom of the beauty business. They made certain that I'd be ready for the esthetics world and beyond. They nourished my natural abilities and encouraged me the whole way. I left beauty school knowing I'd be successful in the beauty biz.
Northwest Essence- Cheryl Young 1998
Cheryl is a nurse and an aromatherapy practitioner. She owned an essential oil company called Northwest Essence and sold the finest essential oils. She shared her love for true aromatherapy, healing and mother earth. She taught that essential oils are above all healers of the heart, mind and soul.
Anchor Point Institute- Nick Leforce, Tim Hallbom, and Suzi Smith 2000
Anchor Point Institute no longer exists as it did, but these teachers held an impeccable container of transformation through NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). This practitioner program was a major recapitulation of so many old toxic thought patterns and helped move me towards what I wanted in life. I always knew I'd end up sharing this with others when the time was right. NLP helped me become a better mom, a better esthetician, and just a better person by allowing me to build rapport with others and be a better observer. I learned to listen deeply and meet others where they are at.
Awakening Avalon- Holly H. 2016
I apprenticed with Holly at Awakening Avalon on the priestess path for three years. My time training with Awakening Avalon wasn't quite what I expected. Most of it was good, but there were some things that occurred that were out of integrity, to me, and caused me to question many things about my experience and the priestess path in general. After a deep dive into my own intentions around reclaiming the priestess archetype, and into the disruptive incidents I and others experienced while in training, I now fully accept that it was my path back to remembering the priestess energy I embody. I truly went back and forth around mentioning my time on the priestess path here, but it was a time I spent in deep devotion to healing my relationship to my inner feminine, and bringing my inner masculine and feminine into sacred union. It feels important for me to mention it as a way of honoring the transformation that occurred withinin me through that devotion. In this sense, it was the perfect path for me. For anyone interested in reclaiming the priestess archetype, come talk to me. Either I can help you, or I can point you in several directions.
Breathwork Facilitator Training- David Elliot 2018
David shares a two part pranayama breath that I experience as a breath of fire or transformation. This breathwork is truly transformational and I have had some of the deepest insights about myself and the world- seen and unseen- with this kind of breath. This pranayama is the best for clearing out stagnant energy and creating room for you to experience own true essence. Learn more about David here.
Clairvoyant Training- Richard Leviton 2019
I worked weekly with Richard for half of 2019 to deepen my skills as a clairvoyant. He was adamant about good energetic boundaries and hygiene. He pushed me to learn how to validate myself, and always encouraged me to look deeper into things and not take things at face value. He also taught me how to work with earth and cosmic energy, and focused much of our training on working with mother earth and learning to be of service to her and her light temples. He also made me laugh a lot, which made our sessions enjoyable and fun. Learn more about Richard here.
Clairvoyant Center Of Hawaii- 2019
This was a continuation of the training I did with Richard. I took basic clairvoyance and energy healing here. I love the spirit of aloha and amusement that they teach with. Learn more about The Clairvoyant Center of Hawaii here.
Check Your Privilege- Myisha T Hill 2020
Myisha offers a wonderful community experience for white bodied people to learn about, check, and stay curious about their privilege. This work is ongoing for me, but I wanted to point people in her direction as a great place to begin an anti-racist journey. I participated in her community for a year where she held a loving and compassionate container to explore my privilege and continue to decolonize the harmful ways of being and thinking that we've all been born into. She challenges people in the right way, and offers compassion as they lean into discomfort. I'm really grateful for Myisha's service in this world. She is a bright light leading the way forward!

Foundation of the Sacred Stream- Isa Gucciardi 2020
When I found Sacred Stream and began my depth hypnosis path, I experienced an inner alignment with my path. Depth Hypnosis took all the other tools I had been gathering and put them all into one. It gave me an outlet to share all the healing work, while strengthening my own understanding of myself and my soul's purpose. I know that my higher power had a hand in guiding me to all the teachers above, and that when I found Sacred Stream, I was truly ready to meet myself. The healing I experienced over my practitioner training, and continue to experience has brought me into the most loving and trusting relationship with myself and my higher self. Learn more about Sacred Stream here.
Last, but certainly not least, I want to acknowledge my husband, children, parents, in-laws and chosen sisters and brothers (you know who you are) for all being teachers for me along the way. Thank you all for the unconditional love, forgiveness, acceptance, joy, fun, magic and belonging as we walk together through this life. I love and honor each of you from the depth of my being. Love, Jenny
