Shares about Presence with Jacia
"Jacia embodies the invitation to a deep dive and to soar high! She has a presence that is breathtakingly bold and holds a space that is so exquisitely compassionate. My life profoundly opened up the minute I began my work through her Rhythms of Acceptance classes and then with Jacia as a spiritual counselor and mentor. It was as if I then had access to a deep inner world that I always known existed but never quite knew how to fully access. Jacia, gate keeper, seer, wisdom walker, Divine Dakini Dancer, and fellow sister companion along the spiritual path. I have such a deep gratitude for the gift of her work in this world." Sarah Nutting MaMuse
"In a time of deep disorganization on my life path, Jacia was the guide who helped me navigate my way, offering me a space to unravel into myself, supporting me to take the next uncertain step I needed to take. Jacia lives that which she holds space for and helps people to become human again."
"Jacia's work is profoundly transformational as well as supportive, creative and fun. I have been guided by Jacia for the past 15 years at various key points; the death of my father, after living through hurricane Katrina, dramatically changing my life from a non profit to an aritst. I have always found the work to be profound and the results to be long lasting. I have taken her dance workshops, breathworkshops, and one on one guidance. Her ability to access and utilize different modalities makes her one of the most poweful healers i have ever come across. "
"I was first introduced to Jacia's work through the 5 Rhythms 12 week course. With nuturing presence, she held a safe space for me to stay in my body for a feeling that completely overwhelmed me as i moved. This moment of care and trust led me to seek counseling and support on an individual basis with her. With the sense of safety she carries, and her wisdom and insight - together she assisted me to journey through my past experiences and stories to transform my present. With gentle guidance I learned to trust my vulnerability. With some healing in place I was then able to continuously step towards living a more authentic life. With her support I began to actively apply tools learned in the safety of our healing space we co-created; into my personal life to build sustainable self care and authentic living." Jennifer S
"I worked with Jacia for over seven years participating in many ways to investigate myself, individual spiritual counseling sessions, work with my partner, groups and classes and breathwork intensives. She also officiated at my wedding and helped us to create our vows. It was life changing work for me and I attribute this to the depth of presence, compassion and loving kindness she brings to every interaction. Jacia is fearlessly authentic. She is also warm, joyful and fun. I thoroughly recommend doing any kind of healing and guidance work with her. Jamey Jacobus Moore

"Jacia has been a constant teacher in my life for 10 years. She has taught me many things in the course of our work both on and off the dance floor, the most important being how to listen to my inner voice. Not just how to listen to that sweet, needy , wounded voice; but how to empower it, respond to it faithfully, encourage it and protect it. Jacia is a beautiful warrior of love and support. The greatest teachers allow you to see them grow as well, which Jacia has done. I learn from her in so many ways. Thank you Jacia, for your wisdom, strong hugs, and gentle reminders to take care of the wounded in me, and honor with love the wounded in others. " Alana K.

Jacia has a style that allowed me to open my heart and open my life. to new experiences that no other counselor or teacher had been able to do before.. She has a deep heart, deep understanding and unlimited compassion..

"Jacia's guidance launched me on a path of highly rewarding self discovery. Her counseling, committed rhythms of acceptance series, and group work and drop in dance sanctuary opened me in ways i could never have dreamed. In a climate of safety and authenticity, she has supported my growth through major life transitions. There is no doubt that i live more authentically and fully today because of Jacia's passionate commitment to transformative work." Lora Diane F.
