Jen’s workshop on Legitimizing Your Gifted Needs was extraordinary. It was visionary. It was luminary. I personally got so much out of the material she presented. Being pressed into service so many times because of my giftedness, my needs were usually pushed to the wayside. Actually I wasn’t allowed to have them. So being able to talk about my feelings and needs really helped me with my healing and evolution. As well, meeting like minded people was enormously comforting as I didn’t feel alone but felt like I belonged and when they spoke about the same kinds of challenges it was wonderfully helpful. I would recommend this workshop to anybody who needs help saying, “You know what? I matter.” Jen has helped me with that so much. My rights matter.

Like many, I harbor that secret dream of writing a novel (or memoir in disguise). I’ve even had a title and a first page which, for years, I’ve moved from one computer to the next. And it would have stayed there, stashed away, if it weren’t for the Writers’ Workshop with Jen. See, I’m someone who needs a bit of structure, someone to tell me what to do (if only so I can rebel against it). And the Writers’ Workshop gave me that, as well as a safe space where I feel comfortable to expose my crappiest writing, and dig into the basement of old journals and fragments I’ve squirreled away through the years. What began as a hobby, a pastime, catching up with a dream deferred, is slowly but surely turning into a calling. Yes, as presumptuous as it may seem, I can see this becoming more of a life mission—if I only had the discipline. But hey, that’s what Jen is here for!

If you’re thinking of writing a memoir or story about your life, I highly recommend participating in the Writer’s Workshop. The structure and guidance that Jen offers has been so helpful in sorting out what felt, at the beginning, like a huge and sometimes overwhelming process.  I can’t imagine tackling my writing project without the support of Jen and my writing group. For me it’s been a safe place to explore the writing process as well as a place to dig deeper into my own personal story and how I can best share it with the world.

Jen’s Time Management course broadened my horizons and has been incredibly useful. No, Jen won’t share one-size-fit-all solutions and ready made tips to be more efficient. Her approach is much deeper: she guides you so that you learn about your needs and preferences, so that you define what is the best way for YOU to spend your time in order to maximize energy and satisfaction. It’s about shaping our life so that it fits us, vs adjusting ourselves to a given life. I wish I had learnt this as a kid… Thanks Jen!

Jen’s Time Management course really changed things for me. The awareness I gained about how I used my time, and how that did or didn’t match up with my values and goals caused a major shift in my mindset. It went beyond simply being more productive, or working on creative pursuits, to focusing on creating a conscious construction of yourself. Feeling aligned with yourself is where the opportunity to create productivity comes in. It’s not necessarily about the goal itself, it is about about your values. I also needed someone to tell me that it’s okay to spend time dreaming. I’ve always been so ambitious, setting my life up before it is headed anywhere. When Jen emphasized the fact that I need to give myself the space to dream about the possibilities, that encouraged me to “breathe” a little more and made me even more excited to be where I am. I also thought about the people I choose to spend my time with; the time I spend alone doing things that I maybe didn’t see as productive before, but now understand their importance much more. I have changed a lot already and am excited to see where this continues to take me.
