My name is Jill Van Meter.
I have always been on a search to know myself and the world around me more deeply and profoundly.
I have always longed to live a life of adventure and magic and sweet connection with people and animals.
I wanted to be a veterinarian when I was a kid, and an actress.
Later, I wanted to be an animal keeper at the Los Angeles Zoo and I took all kinds of courses towards that including an internship at the zoo.
Eventually, my interests changed to wanting to help people. I wanted to help others, as well as myself, understand and embrace their innate beauty and essential mystery.
I became a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncturist, a massage therapist and a yoga instructor and meditation teacher as ways to share my desire to guide people back to their own inner Divine nature and back to their connection with nature and the world around them.
I became a certified Co-Active Coach as a way to support and guide people back to their own inner knowing and self trust.
I am becoming an Equine Guided Coach as a way to learn from the magical and highly sensitive horse in order to live my life in a daily prayer of presence and truth and to, yet again, share this path with those that resonate with it.
More than ever, at this time of my life, I feel called to share all that I have learned with others regarding self compassion and self love.
I have learned from my own path of self discovery that the more that I stay connected to my own self truth and inner guidance, the greater is my connection with other people and the animal and plant world.
I believe with all of my heart that each one of us deserves to experience life in it’s full magnificence while also allowing ourselves to experience hardships and difficulties and pains just as fully. This is a life fully lived.
