    Find your aligned 'what's next'


    The Ember Circle is for women who are ready to do the inner work that leads to outer change.


    It's an experience designed to amplify your inner voice so the choices you make are truly aligned with the life you want to lead and the world you want to create.

  • "Instead of allowing external advice to clutter my path, I now have the confidence to look inward and make the choices that are most aligned with my values and vision. I can engage in the unlearning I want to do, and how that connects to the world I want to help create."

  • The Experience

    In the Ember Circle you'll build:



    You'll peel back layers of 'shoulds' and cultural conditioning to reconnect with your inner compass and allow you to make more aligned confident decisions.



    You'll bring your fears to the light and be more able to recognize when they are driving your reactions. You'll practice acting from a place of love and your most authentic self.



    You'll look at your boundaries, and get clear on what drains your energy and what makes you feel most alive. You'll learn tools to re-frame obstacles as the fuel for your growth.

  • "Jess and the women in my Ember Circle were inspiring, insightful and authentic. I loved connecting with them and experienced profound, lightbulb moments. I'm coming away with a new appreciation for my inner wisdom, the journey that I'm on, and the power of connection."

    Hi - I'm Jess...

    Somewhere along the way of taking care of two little people, trying to repair the world, and support the people I love I had lost the connection with the deepest parts of myself. Something didn't feel right but I couldn't decide what I needed to change or where I needed to go.
    I sought out a number of incredible mentors, courses, and experiences. Years of saying no, 'I'm too busy', - became months of saying yes. I prioritized my inner work - something I had long paid lip service to - but had never made time for. I started a regular practice of reflection that in many ways has changed everything.
    The Ember Circle is the experience I wish I had. It takes my experience as an ecologist, non-profit leader, community builder, ICF-certified coach, and educator and weaves it into a powerful journey.
  • "There is something truly magical that happens when a group of strong women get together in circle. Through conversation, reflection, deep listening, and sinking in, I have received timely teachings and 'aha' moments that have reminded me of who I am. Thank you Jess, for creating this beautiful space of stillness, connection and truth-telling."

  • The Details

    What does it look like?

    Over 12 weeks, you'll get the support, structure, and tested roadmap to go inward and get clarity on what you want to do with your life - and more importantly - who you want to be.


    You'll be a part of an intimate community of women committed to learning together. You'll gather weekly with your small cohort (max of 9 people) for 90 min. on Zoom. Journaling prompts, meditations, and an online space to connect with your peers will be used to deepen your practice between sessions.


    The group calls will be led by Jess and will use group coaching, collective inquiry, and self-reflection. Each conversation and the community itself will act as a sacred container designed to foster your growth.


    Those who complete the Ember Circle are then invited to join the Ember Council - a longer integration experience that builds on the tools covered in the Ember Circle.

    Who is it for?

    The Ember Circle is for women* who want to reconnect with the deepest parts of themselves and feel more aligned in all aspects of their life. It's a space for those who want to be of service to others and the planet in this time of rapid change.


    The container it creates will be especially helpful for those who are in or are seeking a career transition in their life, feeling disconnected from their purpose, or seeking a process and community to accelerate their growth.


    The Ember Circle is a BRAVE space, and all members are asked to commit to a practice of creating a safe-as-possible space for other members.


    *The circle is centred on the experience of, and is open to, all women - including both trans and CIS women. Non-binary folks who identify with the experience of womanhood and are interested in joining please reach out for a conversation.


  • The Details

  • "The Ember Circle is an opportunity to press pause, reflect, and realign. It left me with a clearer sense of the steps I can take right now to carve out a future self that's in line with my values. Jess's calming presence pairs with her depth of knowledge and breadth of experience to bring about powerful, purposeful moments of reflection and learning. Every moment of introspection is backed up with frameworks, meditations, and guidance to turn reflections into action."

    What kind of long-term impact does the experience have on participants?

    I'm so glad you asked!


    I wanted to know that too - so I reached out and did interviews with alumni months after they completed the program.


    I was humbled and amazed by how it strengthened their relationships, re-invigorated their lives, and transformed how they chose to spend their time and energy.
