Janine is a woman-identifying Reiki Master, Intuitive, Transformational Coach and Facilitator with over 20 years of teaching experience. She is a leader in her field and specializes in supporting others to deeply understand the power of synergistic femininity and spirituality, so that they may actualize their capacity to move gracefully, create courageously, and be their whole and multi-dimensional selves.
In this present time, we have exercised and exhausted mostly masculine ways of being in the world. They have served us well. Though, Janine, has recognized since her younger days as a Construction Manager, Competitive Dancer, and Academic, that another, more feminine, way of processing was possible and not yet easily available or widely understood.
Life lead her to intuit this process through a growing connection to Mamma Earth, while practicing Qi Gong and homesteading in the Sierra Foothills of California. That time was deeply healing for her and hearkened back to her early experience of grief after witnessing the passing of her father at the age of 20.
She went on to learn some harsh life lessons which she shares openly to her students, on occasion – struggling as a gigging performance artist in San Francisco and trying to make sense of her path. She calls these the dark years that ultimately taught her to survive toxic relationships, overcome the underpinnings of addictive and destructive behavior, communicate boundaries, and be kind and compassionate to herself and others.
It wasn’t until Yoga and Reiki came into her professional life in 2016 that her personal heart and soul work became her life purpose. She then began transforming to be more balanced and aligned – no longer over-achieving, but now living in optimal being.
With countless self-produced projects under her belt, Janine has taught internationally and worked with clients across the globe in the areas of performance, healing, success, sex, love & relationships, sustainability, and overall health and wellness.
She holds a degree in Rhetoric from UC Berkeley and many significant certifications in Yoga, Reiki, Shamanism and Transformation. She is part of Claire Zammit’s Global Leader Community and receiving Certifications as a Feminine Power Coach, Facilitator and Leader.
It may seem hard to put her in a box, but surely that is the most authentic expression of her femininity – ever-changing, multi-dimensional, and actualized in all her heart-led pursuits.
Her life’s work is currently expressing through the Living Altar’d experiences and programs. The signature work is a group Reiki and movement experience, wherein participants are given a safe transformative space for invocation, self-realization, collective learning and ego-hacking.
She currently resides in La Jolla, CA with her two kittens, and makes daily offerings to the Ocean.
