Jenna Smith: The Joy of Living From Your Heart

Jenna Smith knows the power of living from your heart.

When Jenna Smith was a young woman, her life became very complicated. She faced notable challenges at home, and was living in physical pain from a car accident. When she was told that that was it, she would have to live with pain, it didn’t make sense to her.

Jenna embarked on a journey of inquiry, following her truth to change her reality.

In this broad-ranging conversation about shamanism, heart-centred living, masculine and feminine energy, personal responsibility and boundaries, Jenna and Laura explore how true wisdom starts with going within in order to go out into the world.

Jenna Smith is an Ontological Coach, Spiritual Psychotherapist and Shamanic Intuitive. The Creator of the ‘You are the Manual’ online program, Jenna runs an international business coaching, counseling and running Shamanic retreats from her home by the shore of Lake Huron.

Her mission is to reconnect people to their unshakeable center, where all authentic knowing lives. Through understanding and integrating how to use our mind, body, heart, and spirit intelligence systems, we can get out of the muck of confusion and into our truth, purpose, power and JOY.
