Stay lit!

Stoke your holy fire and grow legs under your heart with regular Jeannie in your very own home! Holy Essentials is a committed online course that provides a profound container for transformation with a comprehensive curriculum and a committed community. This course is designed to support a rich exploration of nine foundational elements of an integrated system that fosters healing and the unfolding of grounded Being. Combining pre-recorded classes, monthly live Q&As with Jeannie, powerful home practices, partner exercises, an online support forum and more, the Course concludes with a daylong intensive in June 2019.

"Really, I have no words to summarize how profoundly these last nine months have touched me; how deeply meaningful, life-transforming, and soul-nourishing they have been. Each month quenched my being in a unique and poignant way. Nine months of powerful teachings, held in a container of deep safety and tenderness, accompanied by the hearts of fellow courageous truth-seekers, with direct and immediate access to Jeannie - her love, deep care and wisdom - is not something you come by often in this world. The space Jeannie holds is rare, and her invitation, tenaciously real. Transformation. Faith. A ground on which to surrender. A place of deep repose for the melting heart. Home.”

-- Sasha Cooke

"I have to say, the last committed program I took part in completely changed my life. Jeannie is a master of holding the intention of the group with integrity and love."

-- Mary Walker

Holy Essentials Curriculum

The Holy Work comprises steps that seem deceptively simple, but within that simple structure lies a powerful crucible for transformation and surrender to the Holy. Building and deepening in this crucible is the focus of Holy Essentials, as we delve monthly into such rich themes as:

  • The Holy: Holy context & staying inspired, the central nature of the sacred, dangerous prayer, courting Grace, turning toward and invoking the Holy, remembrance
  • Yin: the felt field: felt sense of being, Sophia/Shakti as feminine expression of the Holy, senses, vibration, ground, sky, opening to spiritual energetic resource
  • Yang: form, practice, commitment, container
  • Self: sovereignty, relationship with self, creature, the baby, spiritual maturity
  • Attempts to master: leaving “now” - figuring it out, distraction, denial, blame, projection, demand
  • Being mastered: turning toward Holy, “letting go,” noticing, powerlessness, IS
  • Unwinding reactivity: delusion/meeting emotional states, using reactivity as fuel for Holy Work, unwinding specific reactive patterns
  • Unknown: mental knowing vs. embodied gnosis, opening to unknown, illusion of security
  • Gratitude: noticing and opening to blessings/resources of moment, using resources of moment for support, noticing simplicity of moment
