Get to know Jain
Jain has always had a fascination with philosophy and psycho-spiritual development. She received a Degree in Philosophy and English before completing her Masters and PhD in Transpersonal Psychology in California. She is a clinical hypnotherapist, practitioner of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), psychosynthesis, EFT (emotional freedom technique), among other modalities. Jain also a practitioner and advocate of Gong sound healing, which has been a key part of her work since 2015. She completed her Gong and Sound Healing training at The Integral Yoga Institute in New York. Jain is currently doing ongoing research in this area and is writing her second book about utilizing the Gong for healing and Opioid addiction.
She began her work in the field of psychology over 20 years ago and originally developed and launched her awareness programs in Canada, training 25 facilitators. They worked as a team to make positive change in various cities and communities in Western Canada, and the UK. Jain also taught her program in India and The United States.
She is an author of several books on healing and spent many years as a business magazine writer/editor before getting involved in psychology, and continues to write for various publications. Her doctoral research involved combining mindfulness meditation practice with guided imagery visualizations as a way of enhancing personal growth and transpersonal awareness. The results of this study along with were published in her book Meditation: The Incredible Gateway to An Abundant Life. The second edition of this book was released in January, 2018 on Amazon. It is a ‘workbook’ with practical exercises for not only mindfulness and meditation practice, but also includes other techniques for shifting difficult emotional states and raising consciousness.
Her philosophy is an Integral one that emphasizes the importance of work on Self at the emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual levels. “My work with others involves the same philosophy that I have for myself. I personally engage in a number of practices that help me stay centred, focused and fit in mind, body and soul, “says Jain. “Developing solid practices and habits will dictate how well you live your life – the quality of your interactions with others, the state of your health, and your ability to create and develop your ideas and interests.”
She branched out into Music as a hobby several years ago and naturally incorporates the themes of her teaching work into her lyrics. She was classically trained in piano in her youth and re-visited her “dusty keyboard in the closet” to write a song for her teaching work only to discover she had a natural ease and aptitude for writing music.
She feels her music and teaching work are ways of enhancing her own personal growth and love of helping others transform themselves to lead happier and more authentic and productive lives. Her work over the last couple of years with the Gong and sound healing is a natural extension for her love of music and sound.
