It just feels so good to feel good, yes?
That is really what Mind/body classes and our healing-shares are all about. Many of us start in a not-too-good-feeling place but we just keep getting a little better and a little better. Sometimes we “fall off the wagon,” but the great thing is we serve to support each other to get back on and stay on. Those of us who attend are inspired by the tremendous variety of the Universe. We are all so unique, and what works for me will not necessarily work for anyone else. We keep the doors open for expansion and growth and are inspired to try new ways to feel good and get healthy. Each week we meditate together and breathe together, and that is never a bad thing! We love meeting new and interesting people.
These classes are especially good for people who have a chronic condition or pain that has reached a certain plateau of improvement. You may want to feel better than you do right now, but do not have the motivation or inspiration to move beyond your current level of wellness.
As we explore various topics which engage the mind and body, we begin a movement and a shift in perspective. We can’t help but feel relief. With the benefit of group we stay focused on the commitments we make to ourselves. The synergy of the group is like grace. It helps to inspire and motivate us. It feels like fun, rather than work. Regular participants attain a deep sense of well-being. We respect where you are, and welcome you in whatever shape you are.
I look forward to meeting you.

Aromatherapy and Essential Oils – Open House October 11
Join me this Saturday! I will have displays of the products that doTERRA is releasing, as well as share post- convention news. This was my first year attending the doTERRA convention and it was unbelievable. I came back inspired. Snacks will be served. Lots of door prizes and give-aways. Feel free to bring friends and family.
Come with us to explore the health benefits of essential oils. Before the advent of modern medicine, our means of healing came from the natural world. Many plants provide powerful medicinal properties. Essential oils embody the regenerating, oxygenating, and immune-strengthening properties of plants. They are lipid soluble and can quickly penetrate the skin and cell membranes. Essential oils may be used to strengthen your immune function, promote healing, ease pain and discomfort, cleanse surfaces.
Please bring your curiosity and any questions or issues you would like to discuss.
Bring your dinner at 6:00 and come to visit before our discussion begins.

Here’s what folks are saying about Jeanette’s groups and classes:
Jeanette has a unique set of skills and knowledge based on actual experience as a counselor and a life-long dedication of research on a wide variety of methods proven to work and heal the body, mind and spirit. This meet-up was very enlightening and found it refreshing she combined many different ways of understanding the body and mind through spirit to arrive at a way to empower each individual on their path to healing. Joanne, Portland, OR
This class is like the energizer bunny, it just keeps on GIVING! Jeanette’s warm and kind heart embrace all & her meetings provide a welcoming healing place for everyone in all stages of one’s healing journey. Always allowing everyone attending to gain more depth to their own spirituality through her teachings & leave feeling a whole lot better! Rose, Portland, OR
Jeanette’s guided imagery-meditations are very powerful, and I experienced first hand the benefits of this through her beautiful voice as I begin to easily go inward into my own journey.
It is obvious that she generously desires to share with others the peace and well-being that comes from all the years of experience working with others, her own healing journey, and vast knowledge learned throughout all her years of being a student and a teacher/guide. Her humor always adds such lightheartedness to her classes, making them fun too! There always was a comfort in her group/classes that allowed me to be myself, and to let my spirit release whatever I was working on at the moment in a very supportive & non-judgemental way. These are just a few of the wonderful gifts Jeanette is endowed with! Rose, Vancouver, WA
