WHAT PEOPLE SAY
NANCY, ARTIST IN NYC
Jax has a deep and nuanced understanding of the subtle energies that lead us into patterns as well as a patient and kind demeanor to help you understand what proactive choices going forward may include. Highly recommend. I am proud to call Jax a core member of my self-care team.
DAVID, EVENT ORGANIZER
...wonderful and strong readings that people are still talking about months later. This person does wonders!!!
JESS, TEACHER & WRITER
I was thrilled by the care and time Jax took to inform me not only about the reading itself but Jax's techniques and deeper purpose. I felt I walked away with active steps and tools to understand the questions I posed to the cards. It was part storytelling, part coaching.
What do you mean by "healing"?
I define healing as "making whole"- connecting all the different layers and parts of myself into a sense of wholeness.
Healing is for anyone. Old wounds, new hurts, hidden pain- be they emotional, physical, or spiritual - these deserve attention. Healing moves us towards a life that is rich in compassion for others, mindfulness in all activities, and self-awareness that brings peace and guidance through future challenges. Healing can take place in the mind, in the body, and in the spirit. In an Embodied Healing session, we approach all three at once to put you on your own path of total wellness.
What can I expect in a session?
I offer each of my modalities as separate "a la carte" sessions, and also offer customized combinations called Embodied Healing sessions. In an Embodied Healing session, you and I dedicate ourselves for two hours to fully integrating lessons from each of the four modalities I am qualified in.
First, we'll explore what you love about yourself, what you'd like to change, and what path you see yourself on by discussing what your astrological birth chart says about you. Astrology offers options to view ourselves in may different lights, from a variety of angles. It forces ourselves to confont parts of ourselves we haven't been aware of, and to turn away from that which does not serve us.
From there, we'll look at what your immediate needs are, and what tools you have to address them using tarot, angel, Lenormand, or oracle cards. The cards help interrupt habitual patterns of thought, and unveil that which has yet to be considered by the querent.
In order to embody the lessons of the cards and chart, we will move between discussion and activation. Each time we unveil a new lesson from the cards or the chart, we will pair the lesson with a yoga pose, breathing exercise, or meditation tool that helps to reinforce and embody the lesson. This series of yoga practices can be done outside of the session if you'd like to use it as a foundation for your own practice.
At the end of the session, as in all yoga sessions, you will finish in savasana (corpse pose, lying on the mat). In our session, savasana is combined with a full reiki-balancing session, with or without touch, depending on your preference.
Since each session is two hours long, tea, water, and light vegan & allergy-free snacks will be provided.
What do you do to give back?
I share my community with many people who are low income, and in my firm belief that everyone deserves access to healing arts practices, I donate a certain amount of sessions to low-income clients regularly. The more paying clients I have, the more free sessions I can provide, so when you commit to healing yourself, you also commit to helping someone else. This does not only benefit the recipient of the free session-- by dedicating your practice to something larger than your life, you grow exponentially.
If you are low-income and want to be put on the list for available sessions, please email me your name and contact information.
Do you do events, parties, couples sessions or workshops?
I am available for events as a tarot reader or yoga instructor. I have been the resident tarot reader and yoga instructor at Morning Gloryville, Shine On, and other Patreon events in NYC since 2015, as well as a tarot reader at You Are So Lucky events. I have often provided short readings at fundraisers, events, and parties. I am also available for couples or small group sessions by special arrangement.
I'm available to teach and practice for groups in studios, gyms, and other organizations.
To book me for an event, organization, or couple/group session, please email me your contact information and a little about your needs.
What are your credentials?
I am a certified yoga instructor (RYT-200 from the Yandara Institute), a Level 2 Reiki practitioner in the Usui lineage (Alison Eaton, Reiki master), I have read cards professionally and as a service to the LGBT communities in Chicago and NYC since 2009, and I carry insurance from Hays.
What are the benefits?
The benefits of holistic healing practices are many- too many to count! The most common experiences are clarity of mind, specificity of goals, higher focus, strength in body and spirit, enhanced creativity, and a sense of self love and peacefulness. Compassion and empathy start to deepen with this work, enhancing relationships with lovers, friends, and coworkers. Eventually, you may even find yourself helping others heal. A commitment to your own wellness is a commitment to care for and inspire those around you!
