I’m an energetic, outgoing, friendly person; passionate about engaging with friends, family, nature and creative expression. I embrace the philosophy of life-long learning and believe in following our passions to achieve our greatest purpose. Currently, I’m thriving on being a learning consultant in the alternative education field. I often share my lifestyle and travel experiences through writing in my local paper and my travel blog, jilljourneys.wordpress.com. I explore expanded states of creativity and consciousness through holistic bodywork, dance, yoga, meditation, music improvisation, conversation, reading and writing poetry.
One of my foremost passions is the subject of my recently completed Masters thesis with the Graduate Institute for Transformative Learning – ‘Sustaining a Vibrant Intimate Romantic Relationship as a Pathway contributing to the Evolution of Human Consciousness’. I’ve maintained my own 40-year marriage by supporting meaningful communication, shared emotional and physical intimacy, equality and freedom to pursue individual goals. I continually choose my partnership as an opportunity for growth as well as wonderment, and I consider its success as my greatest achievement.
