Jaya was the perfect fit for the confidence-building component of our curriculum.
We manage an employment training program for adults at the Greater Ithaca Activities Center (GIAC), and we invited her to come and speak to us about Personal Empowerment. Jaya's style is engaging and interactive. She not only conveyed the power of these life-changing practices for us but also illustrated them through hands-on activities in our class. Her real-life examples show that she has been deeply committed to making these practices a part of her perspective and lifestyle.

Having Jaya come and do a workshop with our graduate students was a fantastic experience.
She offered them a new approach to confidence and stress
relief, and a new way of dealing with negative thoughts. This
workshop gave them tools to navigate their deadline-driven,
high-performance environment. Many of the students had
not had experience working with a coach; however, they
found her workshop so insightful, a number have continued
to work with her on their own.

Jaya was a terrific resource to bring in for this year's annual weekend retreat—one of the best we've ever had.
On Saturday, we brought in Jaya for the day based on high recommendations from clients of hers, including for her knowledge and application of The Work of Byron Katie, which we wanted to explore. Jaya set the tone of our day together with a beautiful centering meditation. All day, she exuded warmth, love, and confidence in the process. Many of us had heavy, heartfelt issues to work through. Jaya skillfully guided us through Byron Katie's inquiry process and taught us how to facilitate one another. We'd like to use her services again, because we only tapped into a little of what she does as a life coach. We highly recommend Jaya to work with your small group if you want help in finding your truth, in learning to “love what is,” or in moving forward in life with more peace and compassion.

Jaya created a weekend that invited participants to move from victim-based thinking and step into living from our biggest selves.
Jaya is a gifted teacher, able to construct helpful and compelling activities geared toward individual work, pairs, and a whole group. She's also skilled at handling the emotions and dynamics that come up. I especially appreciate her authenticity—she's not full of pat statements or feel-good proclamations. Her presence all weekend was an invitation for us to move from victim-based thinking and step into living from our biggest selves. Both programs she brought were radical, extremely helpful, and growth-producing. Jaya's work is unique and is rooted in the belief that the Universe is always working in our favor. I'm already thinking about how I can get Jaya back to town for more workshops!

Jaya has a knack for getting to the universal—to what's essential to all human beings.
She's also frank and direct, unflaggingly pointing out where we are identified with our stories and coaxing us to face the truth of our turnarounds. She came into our long-standing group—we have been meeting for three years through the Hidden Treasure program, where we discovered The Work of Byron Katie. When we invited Jaya to give us guidance, we were enriched by her skill and intuitive presence. It was especially helpful for us to learn one of Byron Katie's pieces of wisdom, “Don't beat her to her enlightenment.” We saw how we were stepping into one another's processes
to rescue each other when that was actually counterproductive. We plan to have her back.
