Become A Leading Edge Radical Witness

There is a new path being born, a new way.
The critical call in the world and the crucial call in our communities is to create dynamics of relating that allow each one of us to be seen, witnessed and heard.

Learning to hold space and witness one another is a humanitarian art and a form of community activism.
It is not only a rich and fulfilling profession, but a Way Of Life.

I believe that our space holders are either burnt out or, they are not getting enough support and information to hold safe spaces that are actually healing and connected. In order to create safe, radical and connected space-it takes integrity, courage and a deep knowledge of Self.

When we have radical, safe space held for us, when we are truly witnessed by others--we come to know ourselves and the roles we hold in community in invaluable ways. Holding radical space is an art that has been lost amidst patriarchy, capitalism and in places where we value what people can produce for us over who they truly are.

 

Learning to Radically Witness Changes the World

The impact of space holding (good or harmful) can stay with us for decades. That is why it is so important to have accountability, colleagues, mentors and teachers that can walk us through the hard places when we get stuck.

I’m Jen

I’m gonna be your guide the whole way.

I have been moving through the healing arts world since I was 22 years old and I have been through a lot of trainings. From Massage Therapy School, to Holistic Midwifery training, to Shamanic Arts Practitioner training, to over a decade of Astrology training and finally, I went on to receive a masters degrees in Depth Psychotherapy. I have seen the good sides and the very dark sides of the healing arts and space holding world.

I have sat with hundreds and hundreds of clients from all over the world, acting as a compassionate and attuned witness. I understand what it takes to allow people to feel seen, heard and to ultimately find spaces of healing. I want to teach you how to do the same.

I have been to psychics, therapists, Shamans, pastors, preachers, tarot readers and more. Some of my experiences were wonderful and incredibly healing--some were psychically traumatic. I want us, as Sacred Space Holders, to do more good than we do harm. The work you will learn how to do in these 3-day workshops is tender, vulnerable and intimate and I will teach you how to do it with incredible integrity.

Words From Jen's Clients

Lauren Snyder Personal Photograph
"Jen is one of the most profound space holders I’ve ever met. She is so present, so willing, so patient, so deep and so real, that anything and everything can come to light and alchemize in her presence. Jen continues to change my life every time she holds space for me. I feel radically witnessed and held by Jen, and this time of space holding is rare to come by - Jen’s a gift."
- Samantha Gilbert, Sedona, AZ

 

"As a practitioner within the wellness industry for 10+ years, I have worked with numerous healers and therapists all over the world. I have found it rare to step into a space with another human being, where there was such a saturation of unconditional love and non-judgement.

Jen can navigate very murky, cold, and dark waters, and hold a light for all parts of your psyche, body, nervous system, and energy field to be seen, felt, witnessed, and understood. Jen does this without any old paradigm or outdated self-help tools. She isn’t selling anything here. She just is. She walks the talk. She embodies a sacred space of healing. She uses her ability of radical empathy, raw relatedness, and grounded loving reverence for the human condition, to create a container where you can feel that every part of you belongs on this earth, and every part of you matters.

I believe some people are just innately born with gifts to hold space, through a lineage of universal truths that she has been a part of for lifetimes. I highly recommend working with her in any capacity if you feel called."

Our Workshop Curriculum

  • Day One: Awakening the Wounded Healer & Cultivating Radical Boundaries

    We will begin our workshop with an exploration of what it means to be a "Wounded Healer" and carry this archetype through our world. So many of us drawn to this work, bring our own stories of suffering and pain along with us. You will learn how to recognize your unique gifts that come from your challenges and struggles and how to apply them to this work.

    Along with the exploration of The Wounded Healer, we will discuss and explore how boundaries can serve your practice and your every day life. We will practice putting these boundaries in place and collectively process what it means when we serve from a place of integral boundaries.

  • Day Two: Tenants of Space Holding

    During our second day, we will practice and integrate the Tenants of Space Holding. The Tenants of Space Holding include:

    • Understanding our limitations and preferences as practitioners
    • How to work with inner material when it arises in session
    • How to let go of our own agenda during a session and truly listen to our clients
    • How to listen to subtle messages in the room (energetics, body language, your own body intuition, images, stories, metaphor, etc)
    • When and how to confront a client
    •  How to repair and apologize as a practitioner
    • How to see, hear and listen to what someone is actually saying
    • How to know when someone feels truly witnessed
    • How to be with a client's pain and suffering rather than trying to fix, mend, heal or change them
  • Day Three: Tenants of Space Holding + Radical Witnessing Ceremony

    During our final day together, we will continue to practice and integrate the Tenants of Space Holding and we will end our weekend together with a ceremony and ritual to honor everyone's unique gifts and skills as a space holder. During this ceremony, each of you will have the chance to be witnessed by Jen and by everyone at the workshop. As space holders, we do not often get the chance to be truly witnessed. This ceremony is an invaluable initiation into your role as the Radical Space Holder. 

You are going to learn to hold the role of the teacher, the guide, the healer, the witch, the wise one, the intuitive and the seer.
These are ancient and sacred roles to hold in our community - let's do it with deep integrity and accountability.

The Impact of Jen's Space Holding

Tiphini Axtell Personal Photograph

“I originally went to Jen to help me with my anxiety

and I have to say that I've tried several other types of therapy before but my sessions with Jen are really the only things that have changed the trajectory of my anxiety. I've really changed the way I think about my anxiety. When I feel an anxiety attack coming on - which is less and less these days - I kind of lean into it. I know that sounds simple and silly but it wasn't something I was capable of considering before Jen brought it up in our sessions.

I'm now able to let myself feel all the feelings of my anxiety attack - not fight it -so they're shorter and less intense. The biggest thing is the next day, I really honor myself with some deep, beautiful self-care. I don't expect myself to be able to hit the ground running in the morning.

I now honor that my body, my mind and my emotions have been through a lot and I  feed myself nourishing food, read a good book or watch a movie and just take that time to myself, without feeling guilty and without beating myself up. Those are the two biggest things  I've taken away from my sessions with Jen."

- Tiphini Axtell, Santa Fe,

“I am so grateful to Jen for her guidance through one of the most painful and transformative  periods of my life.

I've been struggling to see what's true and authentic in my life and Jen is  consistently an anchor for me when I feel so adrift. I have so much love for Jen.”

- Lisa Roach, Santa Fe, NM

“One of the most challenging aspects of life is feeling like you haven’t been seen or heard.

Jen  has a way of working with her clients so that we are seen, we are heard — and, importantly, the  conversation doesn’t feel clinical or prescriptive. Jen’s approach is soul-refreshing, and I truly  enjoy her spirit and candor.”

- Kim Bryden, Washington, DC 

“I came to Jen with a very specific intention for healing that I wanted to see if her work would be able to touch.

I was delighted that it did and immediately registered for her program. Her work has been invaluable in unravelling some old identity patterns and feeling my way into new relational dynamics with everyone in my life, particularly with my family of origin. Her skill and intuition gently guided me through some major wounds, which have finally been able to clear, giving me the energy and courage to move forward in many areas of my life.

I am very discerning in choosing practitioners to allow into my inner world and I have found Jen to be skilled, compassionate and wise. She is a Healer’s, Healer. Working with her has reignited my introspective curiosity to a whole new level and I love sharing energy and space with this powerful, conscious woman. I will keep coming back for sure!"

- Justice Bartlett, Bozeman, MT

“I feel like a reborn human since starting my sessions with Jen

Jen is truly a life raft in the storm for me. I wish I had other words besides thank you to express what Jen’s work means to me. I feel like I've claimed my wild self - that I understand Her and more of who I am. I am so grateful to operate from this place of being!

I know Jen is holding space for me even when I'm not emailing or talking to her on the phone. I can so feel it and I often sink into it when I need it. I am so appreciative that Jen is holding that big big supportive container for me! Thank you!"

- Stephanie Halligan, Boulder, CO

FAQ's

I have so many clients that come to me and say, "Jen, my last astrologer told me that I will never find love. Do you think this is true?" Or, "Jen, my last therapist told me that instead of working on things with my partner, I should just try polyamory."

Y'all. This is damaging. People take on this stuff and carry it with them for decades. I do not want you to be one of these practitioners. I want you to leave your clients feeling seen, empowered, confronted and valued.

I want to teach you how to hold radical space so that your clients do not feel shamed and doomed, but so they feel they can make autonomous choices for their lives that lead them in creative directions.

When we lift our clients up in validating and truthful ways, we change the course of people's lives and we heal relational trauma.

Let's do this.

All the love in the world,
Jen
