Author & Teacher

Jae is a mindful awareness author and teacher. She has spent the last twenty years writing about, studying and observing how people communicate (and don’t communicate) about the things that matter most in life. She has given talks at multinational corporations in over 50 countries and is the author of seven books and hundreds of articles aimed to help people have more, conscious, compassionate conversations with others and themselves. Some of these conversations are about balance and values, some are about boundaries and expectations and all of them are about awareness. She believes awareness is a skill and she is committed to teaching this skill to all people everywhere.
