During a major episode of depression, Jasmine began to see her world differently. After surviving one of the most darkest phases of her life, she knew that surrendering was the best option. Vividly, she recalls emerging from her cocoon, "I am very grateful for the challenging times in my life. Ultimately, those moments led me to my soul where all of the magic began to happen. I knew that it was my responsibility to assist others with delving within so that they too could discover their power, which is limitless".
Why do we do what we do? Who and what told us to do it?
A passion to connect with others led Jasmine to pursue her education in the field of Psychology. In 2007 she graduated with a Bachelor of Psychology from Tennessee State University and in 2009 she graduated with a Master of Counseling Psychology from the Adler School of Professional Psychology. Though westernized education has allotted her with the opportunity to reach diverse groups with diverse needs, Jasmine sought to incorporate artistic, spiritual, and physical principles into her practice.
In 2011, Jasmine became an initiate of ancestral worship derived from Congo. She has been trained and educated about ancient African and indigenous Indian spiritual practices and traditions. The desire to continue her evolutionary process led Jasmine to Salvador Bahia Brazil in 2012 where she studied and practiced ancestral (egun) worship, Candomble, and voice and dance therapy. She was also led by shamans to connect with sacred medicines and rituals.
After returning to her hometown in Nashville, TN Jasmine continued to study alternatives for western medicine. She is now a certified Reiki Specialist and Master Teacher. In October of 2017, Jasmine received her Birth Doula & Childbirth Advocate certification.
In 2012, Jasmine released her first book an inspirational autobiography "Trust the Journey". Her second book "Trust Yourself: The Ego-Soulology" will be released in 2022.
"I have discovered my passions, my gifts, and the tools that I have so graciously been granted to support others along their journeys. I am a keeper of love and it feels good".
