Mentor | Medicine Woman | Writer
Informed early in life by life-threatening illness and disability, I was intimately schooled in lessons of humility and empathy. From my dance with pain and disease, I learned as a young child to turn to Spirit for solace. I became an imaginer, a questioner, a listener, a dreamer, a seer, a Truthkeeper. I became a bridge.
A near-death experience at 19 provided a spiritual ultimatum of sorts that required my choice to incarnate fully; to say yes to life, and yes to making medicine of all that life brings. This catapulted my prayer for peace in a way that directly led to the honor of learning from and apprenticing with masterful spiritual teachers, indigenous elders, and shamans.
A lifelong mystic and healer, for decades I’ve served as a soul mentor, shamanic medicine woman, and ceremonial facilitator, working with individuals, families, small groups, and teams. I coach inspired leaders and organizations towards new levels of awakening, coherence, integrity, and impact.
My clientele includes tech executives, war veterans, artists, athletes, therapists, public figures in the music and entertainment industry, mothers and fathers, and executive teams of visionary organizations.
I believe the most effective catalyst for evolution in any individual, organization, or relationship lies in our capacity to instill radical codes of truth and love, inviting courageous transparency and wholehearted compassion, fostering trust and respect on all levels.
I’m here to empower our innate capacity to directly face whatever appears to be in the way of our highest purpose, peace, and freedom. I serve as a clear mirror and a tuning fork, providing skillful reflection and feedback while inviting resonance with the greatest possibility for thriving.
In all the roles I play, and with everyone I meet, I extend a wholehearted invitation to to tell the tender truth and to choose love, moment by moment.
It is my joy and honor to welcome others home to their own discovery of inherent stillness, wholeness, integrity, and self-love.

“If we learn how to consciously meet our suffering, then even our suffering is the precise medicine needed to bring us deeper home to life and to love. ”
“Vigilance is our return to the flame of our deeper intent—to come home, to rest, to belong to ourselves, to be claimed by love.“
“Here, without a single thought, or duty or shred of significance— we are enough, we are worthy, we are sacred, and we belong.”
Ceremonial Immersions & Retreats
Sometimes what’s called for is an in-depth immersion, an opportunity to retreat fully from the thrust and demands of our daily lives, from the many identities and roles we maintain.
Jesua brings decades of experience as a skilled life coach, counselor, and shaman in co-creating a retreat specifically designed to address whatever burning questions, growing edges, intentions, and desires are most present within you, your family, or your group.
Using the immeasurable power of prayer, Satsang, silence interwoven with music, holy sacraments, and shamanic energy medicine, this kind of intensive beckons next-level coherence, self-intimacy, awakening, and evolution.
“Jesua’s presence is a testimonial in itself. In dedicating her life to love, to truth, to awakening, she is the walking, breathing, giving extension of that commitment.
When she shines her light on you, you know you have been seen in the truth of your being.“
— Toni, intuitive, teacher & poet, Fort Bragg, CA
“When I am looking for sober clarity and sweet inspiration, I turn to Jesua.
She breaks open my heart; illuminating how every moment, no matter how difficult, is fodder for growth, part of our holy human curriculum.
Jesua is a teacher for this modern era, a guide for these troubling times when we must ask ourselves how to live an awakened life in the midst of so much that seems to be going wrong.”
—Sylvia Benito, wealth manager & shaman, Miami, FL
“Jesua is a truly extraordinary woman— a bright shining star, leading the way home. She teaches as she lives: with clarity, intelligence, heart and humor…”
— Gangaji, spiritual leader and author
