Speaking & Workshops

“Who are we to know or decide what was the best course of action for our loved ones? It is only our job to see them. For who they are and hold space for them. In doing so, we honor our loved ones and their memories. They may seem like the walking dead. But they are not. They are still there. In a different light. Perhaps, in their silence, they choose their path, and perhaps we can find our own path too.”

Seeking Clarity With the Labyrinth: A Guide for Support, Connection, and Healing supports caregivers, and people with dementia on a guided process of working through their journey, starting right where they’re at. This workshop provides a safe and healing space to help understand and explore tools to process their emotions and experience. Includes an introduction to the Labyrinth, as well as the opportunity to do a Labyrinth Walk, via hand-held labyrinth and/or by walking, as space allows.

Jessica is also attending conferences, caretaker groups and more as a featured speaker. If you are interested in having her attend your event, please reach out through our Contact Page.

No Apologies Book Club Reading and Discussion

Thank you to No Apologies Book Club for inviting me to attend your Zoom meeting and discuss my book and hear the stories of so many powerful individuals!

I laughed and I cried, sometimes simultaneously. Although my journey with my Mom was incredibly different, it was somehow absolutely identical. This story is one of love and lessons that every daughter should read during or after their own mother's passing. Thank you for putting into words what I have felt in my heart so many times.
