Do you ever think “there must be more than this” to life?
Do you dream of living a more authentic life that lets your true gifts shine?
Does your heart – and mind! – feel that you have a greater purpose in life that is just waiting to be discovered and fulfilled?
I used to feel like that too. My name is Jennifer Monahan, and my passion is to help people define and live authentic, purposeful lives that not only bring them more joy and freedom, but also help them make the impact they want on the world.
Several years ago I worked as an executive leader for a well-paying consulting firm. While I enjoyed the work and the people I worked with, I knew in my heart that there was “something else” out there for me. A chance meeting with a Mayan shaman in Mexico was the catalyst for me to change every aspect of my life. I ended up writing my first of now two books, quitting my job, putting everything I owned in storage and traveling around the world for almost a year. Today, I split my time between San Francisco and Guatemala (where I have built a vacation home of my dreams) living a life that gives me freedom, flexibility and joy while doing work that excites me every day and makes an impact on the world.
As I discovered my authentic self, I learned six things that everyone needs to do to live an authentic life. These six things broke down barriers and gave me the direction and confidence I needed to move forward to create the life of my dreams. I’ve written “Six Steps to Living a Courageously Authentic Life” that outlines these steps. I’d like to give it to you as my gift.
Here’s How I Can Help You
"I wanted to extend from my heart to yours how incredibly grateful I feel for our shamanic session today. We often highlight as healers how "it's spirit doing the work", which is true, but... or AND I want to also acknowledge and honor YOU for the amazing soul and deeply feeling spirit you are; intelligent, wise, heartfelt, compassionate, intuitive, facilitating such powerful healing for me and others. I can just feel your wonderful journey in the deeply spiritually connected, miraculous place you are over there, the magical expansion that is happening and the many lives you touch, the many lives you will touch and help move forward powerfully. I know I feel deeply touched and moved forward. You are incredible truly. Thank you for who you are and the very special gifts you share with this world."L.N.M.
"Thank you so much! I can already feel an openness in my heart! You are incredible!"M.L.

I read your book "This Trip will Change Your Life" and it's by far my most favourite book ever. I could not put it down. It still resonates with me months after reading it. Spellbinding.

Jennifer takes us on a rare, powerful and vulnerable journey into the awakening of her shamanic abilities.

One of our most favorite type of books is a biography. And even better than that are the biographies that are adventures! This Trip Will Change Your Life gloriously fits the bill both times, luckily for all of us. There is nothing finer than sharing each other’s true stories, especially like this one, where the author has been there, done that in fantastically transforming events. In a few words, we awaken our inspiration and we change. Immediately. Jennifer brings us with her in deeply intimate, life-altering journeys with honesty, simplicity, spirit and power. We know you can grow your profound potential absorbing her story. What could be better?Marilyn and Tohmas Twintreess, authors of the Stones Alive!

"Jennifer has a unique quality that is calming and grounded, allowing for that comforting sense of safety and security when talking with her; this is coupled with her shamanic abilities support the growth and nurturing of the client's own true sense of self. I came to her a train wreck, and with her help, I have blossomed into a strong and stable individual who is confident that the tools and spiritual guides Jennifer helped provide are there to draw upon when needed. I am eternally grateful, and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for guidance and coaching. Thank you from my whole heart."
