You will be guided on this beautiful journey of self-discovery and empowerment in the heart of Italy with inspirational facilitators in an exciting variety of interesting and soulful experiences.
Jayne began her career as a Registered Dietitian and Corporate Health Educator. After the birth of her third son, she left her job creating corporate employee health and wellness programs to stay at home and raise her three amigos. In 2001, the unimaginable happened and Jayne’s middle son Max passed away after a brief battle with leukemia. In time, Jayne began to emerge from her grief and stepped onto her spiritual path immersing herself in different healing modalities and reading books to try and find answers to “why” did this happen.
As part of her healing journey, Jayne spent 6 years co-leading groups of Bereaved Parents at the Dougy Center for Grieving Children and their Families. During this time, Jayne helped facilitate a safe place to over 150 grieving parents by providing her compassionate support, focused listening skills and first-hand experience allowing participants to heal and have hope for a brighter future.
Jayne was later inspired to reconnect with her creativity after reading the Artist’s Way and reinvented herself as a handbag designer with a personal passion to make a difference. She successfully launched JayneMax, a soulfully luxurious handbag company and co-founded Blue Butterfly Campaign, a non-profit whose mission is to fund cutting-edge research for childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
Jayne is an entrepreneur and loves taking a vision and bringing it to fruition. She was inspired to create the Sacra Blu Retreat on one of her solo trips to Cortona Italy. The magic of Italy, their culture, food and way of life was so healing that she felt called to bring other women here to share this experience with them. Like the butterfly, Jayne has transformed through many of life’s challenges and is excited to help guide and support other women into making meaningful changes in their own lives.
Some of the most important things she’s learned on this journey:
Trust the process and timing of your life, believe in yourself, your capabilities and that all things are possible. All of our past experiences have made us who we are today. You can transform your life in a way that you never imagined.
