Meet Your Guide

Jennifer Brinn - High Res 20.jpg

It is my deepest honor

Since 1999, I've accumulated wisdom from my trainings in yoga, meditation, massage therapy, Reiki, shamanism, energy medicine, somatic healing, psychic healing, animal communication and most importantly, my innate connection to Earth & Cosmos.

And since 2008, I've traveled to sacred sites around the world, from the vortices of the southwest, to the mystical Neolithic sites of the UK, trekking over towering Andean mountains that hold ancient Incan wisdom, bathing in purifying waters of Hawaiian Islands, to ancient temples of Turkey which hold divine feminine energies. Each site has provided me with powerful activations and wisdom which influence my teachings, healings and personal practice.

These retreats offer a tapestry of experiences, soul activations and a transference of ancient wisdom for you to embody and utilize as a powerful change agent in your life.

I am committed to ensuring a safe, supportive container by teaming up with trusted guides, lodging, transport, etc so that you feel secure in deepening into these experiences and  allow your soul to flourish.

It is my deepest honor to be a guide on your journey!

XOXO Jennifer
