I worked with Jenna 1:1, specifically through her emotional resiliency training, and I have to say it was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. She is insightful, kind, and gifted in the art of healing. I could write a book on what she has done for me, but I felt compelled to take this time to highlight the biggest reason why she made the experience so unique and wonderful.
Jenna has mastered the seemingly lost art of active listening. Passive listening is when people listen to you in order to respond with comments of their own. They are waiting for you to stop talking so they can chime in with what they have to say. It becomes more about them than the content of the speaker. This seems almost universal at this point when speaking to people. We all have grown to accept the feeling associated with talking to people who are using passive listening as normal. Active listening is truly digesting the information someone is presenting to you, not thinking of your response during their time talking, and formulating a genuine response only after it has truly sunk in. I can not do justice in words alone to express the pleasure and healing that comes from talking to Jenna. It is like breathing clean air for the first time and wondering why breathing isn't always this way! Why can't conversation always be this wonderful? My conversations with her leave me feeling refreshed and rejuvenated because I can feel she is a human being that is actually listening to me in the way we are supposed to listen to someone! It seems like such a simple thing but you really have to experience it to understand how extraordinary it is. Talking to someone who is engaged in active listening releases a tremendous amount of stress and you feel loved by just expressing yourself.
In this digital age, we are increasingly living in a disconnected society. We have "friends" but we don't have friends. People "listen" to us but they don't really listen. Yes, Jenna has the schooling, experience, and tools to make a difference in your life. More than anything though, she'll make you feel human again. Her ability to connect and understand you is the most remarkable thing I have seen a very long time. I would recommend her to anyone remotely feeling out of line with themselves. In fact, I would recommend her to anyone period. It would be a benefit to anyone at any stage of their life to have her guiding presence.
