Jess is mother to India-Rose who teaches her every day to be present, surrender deeper and open more fully into love. Meditation for motherhood is something Jess is deeply passionate about and a skill she feels is invaluable to any new parent. At any stage of motherhood, Jess understands how important it is that we nourish ourselves in order to live a vibrant, loving and sustainable family life. Jess truly believes that learning to meditate and integrating the practice into daily life is a profound gift for yourself, your child(ren) and family.
Jess is often asked about her experience as both a meditator and a mother. With her daughter as her constant teacher, Jess flows through the dance of motherhood daily. She names Vedic Meditation as her greatest support in being able to fully experience the raw, tender and wild ride that comes with being a mother. Creating a community where women can come together and feel supported, especially on this journey, is one of the reasons for Jess opening her studio space, Satyam; to hold space for women throughout their journey to motherhood.
"A truly magical experience to support any stage of motherhood. Jess’s layer of
ancient wisdom woven together with an engaged community was exactly
what I needed to feel supported in my daily practice."
- Cassie, Mum and Graphic Designer
