Hi, I’m Jessie.
Like you, I too am a concussion survivor. Or in medical terms, I too have a traumatic brain injury (TBI). I am not talking about the majority whose symptoms are resolved within weeks. I’m talking about the minority of us whose symptoms persist for months and years. It so sucks, right? No one seems to understand!
But I do. I do understand.
I am here to tell you that as hard as it is, there are so many strategies we can learn to cultivate calm clarity. I am here to humbly offer you the hard-earned lessons I have learned along the way.

Ode to My Teacher
Written January, 2022 People around the world feel the passing of our beloved teacher Thich Nhat Hanh. He taught me so much but perhaps most of all I am grateful that he taught me to love everyone. I have been an activist all my life and so often this has meant...
You are Always in Choice
From the get-go I modified mindfulness practice to meet my needs. I didn’t have the language for it at the time, but now I see that I was/am focused on nervous system regulation. Simply put, this is a fancy way of saying ‘calming myself down’ if I am anxious or...
