My name is Jennifer Rivers, and I’m a mother, writer, teacher, and believer that by cultivating love and compassion within ourselves, we change the world.
With a passion for self-awareness, writing, and well-being, I took a non-traditional route through college, studying Cultural Anthropology, spirituality, philosophy, and religion, while working in a cooperative student-run vegetarian cafe. After graduation, I moved to Crested Butte, Colorado, where I wrote poetry and short stories while working in restaurants and cafes, cooking, and baking. Next, I moved to Taos, New Mexico, to attend the Scherer Institute of Natural Healing, now the Santa Fe School of Massage.
As I learned massage, energy work, intuitive development, and mind-body connection, I was fortunate to create deep relationships with my friends at Taos Pueblo. It was here where I learned the importance of ceremony, ritual, and tradition. We shared meals, hiked and biked through the mountains, and swam in the rivers and hot springs. At night, by the fire, they’d share tales of the things we see in the night sky, things seen over centuries. Since then, I have been learning the language of astrology as a tool for self-awareness and self-discovery.
In 1996, I opened my massage therapy and healing arts practice, collaborating with western and integrative medical doctors and chiropractors. I practiced martial arts, Korean Tae Kwon Do, yoga, mindfulness, and meditation. In 1999, I returned to school to become a teacher and taught Elementary and Middle School English & Humanities in the Philadelphia and Boston areas for a decade. In 2009, I attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and opened my coaching practice in 2010.
Since opening my practice in 2010, the year I had my son, I’ve been working with people one-on-one, in small groups, over the phone, online, in-person, and, in nature. I teach people to connect with their inner-being through intuition, and methods based on nature's organic wisdom, focusing on the whole person, connections between the mind-body-spirit, and the environment.
I provide a sacred and safe container for you to tap into your true nature and inner-knowing, through the wisdom of the body, mind, and heart. It’s all about consciousness, intention, and self-acceptance.
