Jaiaen’s life has been shaped by tenaciously exploring the experiential nature of non-ordinary reality, with an enormous joy and enthusiasm for cross-cultural healing. She has been led to develop her strengths
wrapped around unveiling and integrating our shadows with ultimate kindness.
Full of Large Love for life on this planet and beyond, she carries a fire for harmony in diversity, seeing it much like an orchestra. Music, as a passionate spiritual path and life container, led her to Zimbabwe.

Carefully and not casually curious about ancient cosmologies, and compassionately driven to do her part to alleviate the suffering of the world, she founded a non-profit, Ancient Ways, in 1994. Ancient Ways, now in its 25th year, has provided basics to thousands of villagers in Zimbabwe. The current focus is providing monthly care supplies and mentoring to maturing girls, operating a
preschool started in 2002, and annually building rural wells for extended family residents. Jaiaen is certified in NMT and has also trained shamanically within the
context of FSS core shamanism, Andean, Amazonian, Norse, and Celtic medicine. She also gratefully recognizes her life teacher, an endearing Cherokee grandmother. She finds the foothills of the Cascades her home where she offers healing and classes, raises organic food and English Shepherds, and delights in the play of both music and
