"Finding Black Mom's Guide to Calm has really changed my life for the better.

I suffer from depression and anxiety after losing my son over a year ago. Since I've been taking private yoga & meditation lessons from Jamie, my life is a lot more manageable."

"I had a private guided meditation session with Jamie over the phone. I didn't know what to expect, but I trusted her and allowed myself to be led. Jamie has such a relaxing spirit, which I immediately connected with. The session helped me relax but also helped me focus solely on one specific area in my life.

"Allowing Jamie to guide me through the meditation was what I needed to help release some things I was holding on to. I highly recommend a private session."

"This [meditation] is much needed in my life right now. I formerly wasn't one for meditation and yoga, even though it's necessary at times, but your voice, the affirmations, and just being able to escape my current 'space' is awesome. Keep up the great work!"

"What I truly enjoy about this book is the fact that it is written in such a clear, concise, and simple way. Often times, books that speak on spirituality or wellness are written in a language that is complex and wordy, making it difficult for the reader to connect. However, because this is written in such a simple way, it can be used by any Black woman to find calm at any stage of life.

"This would be a good gift for any woman in your life who is dealing with stress and may be looking to improve her holistic wellness."

"I regularly join Jamie during meditation moments on [Facebook], but I recently joined her at The Sweatbox for yoga. As an author/editor, my job requires a lot of butt in chair time, and needless to say, my back and seat need some help! Jamie was very calm and explained each position well before moving on to the next. I will definitely do it again."

"Jamie has written a clear and accessible guide for maintaining your peace. In today's world of hustle and grind, this is a welcome relief."

"I really want to thank you. I've been so stressed, I zapped out on my fiance and have been drinking and smoking a lot. I woke up with pain (like labor pains) from stress and dehydration (I believe), and I am just losing my mind. I just did this [breathing exercise], and my pain went away. I can't understand how a simple, couple minute meditation just got rid of hours of pain...


"God bless you, my sister."

"Needless to say, I was freaking ecstatic when Jamie agreed to lead the yoga and meditation sessions during my recent spiritual writing retreat. She showed up with extra mats, her own music and sound system, plenty of room for flow (my favorite kind of routine), and the ability to challenge participants of all levels. Not only is her voice calming, but her entire being has a relaxing effect. She's like walking lavender and, as long as her schedule permits, I intend to hire her for future retreats as well. Namaste and ase."

Brittany J.

"What I liked most about the session is you asked questions that brought me back into focus. I hadn't thought about how I'm getting left out of the equation daily, and now, I'm making a bigger effort to include myself, even if only for a few minutes each day. [After the session,] I've made a conscious effort (most days) to have a little me time. 

"The coaching session will cause participants to examine themselves: mind, body, and spirit. Many times, we lose ourselves when we have a husband and child(ren). This session brought me back into focus."
