We had the good fortune of connecting with Jennifer Roe and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jennifer, what makes you happy? Why?
What makes me happy? Well…I have to honestly say, life! I am an eternal optimist and tend to find joy in many things. I have discovered that true happiness comes from within. As I go further and further down this path I realize that true joy for me comes from the little things whether that is the beauty I am absorbing on a hike to the epiphany I have during a meditation. It is laughter shared with friends; it is a song that makes me dance; it is the discovery of something I never knew before; it is a smile on my son’s face; of the feeling of a job well done. We live in an incredible universe and there is magic all around us as well as in us.

When I do sessions and open into that magic, powerful things happen. It has been through this journey as an energy healer that I have realized just how amazing things really are. As a healer, nothing brings me more happiness than to witness and assist others helping them to discover their inner joy. For them to find that light inside that brings them power and ultimately the inner freedom which allows them to find their happiness inside. Growth and transformation can be both challenging and rewarding and to watch others go down their path, make shifts, and step into their light brings more happiness than anything!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.

It has been quite a journey to get to where I am today. I live in Durango, Colorado and drive to Denver once a month in order to expand the number of clients I serve. When this all started, I was recently divorced. Fresh out of a terrible time in my life. I had lost myself and was probably in one of the worst places I had ever been. I started studying with an incredible mystic and a Red Hat Qigong Grand Master, Beverly Anderson. She helped me to develop an inner sense that everything I was doing was leading to a bigger picture although I wasn’t exactly sure what that was. I did know that it was going to slowly unfold and that I was awakening to a place within myself that had been dormant for a very long time. So much of the work I did was around stepping into my power, which is such an incredible lesson for all of us. It is not an easy task. I have opened the door to amazing gifts that I had no idea existed 10 years ago. I guess I could say, I have found my super powers. We are all so conditioned to think in certain ways. We all carry patterns that are instilled in us on a very deep level. We all have trauma. We all are our own worst enemies and to break through this, really takes patience, it really takes persistence, but ultimately it is possible and it is the most incredible thing we can do for ourselves.
When I actually started my business, I had been working a full-time job that I couldn’t stand while raising my boys and doing Qigong energy sessions for free to as many people as I could. As soon as I was certified to start charging for Qigong sessions, I was literally laid off within one week from the job that paid my bills. I took this as a sign. A sign that there were greater things to come.
Today, I realize how grateful I am for everything that has happened. I am a healer in every aspect of the word. It is who I am, not just something I do. Ultimately, my journey has led me to a place of inner freedom, of strength, of pure joy and happiness. I am here to heal, teach, guide, and help others transform as I did. I know it is possible, as I have done it myself.
To explain what I do, I guess you can say that I am a Red Hat Qigong Master Practitioner, an Akashic Record Reader, and a Spiritual Advisor. My remote energy work consists of Angelic Reiki with a twist. I offer 12-week packages of transformative growth combining every healing modality I use. I work one-on-one, I work face-to-face as well as remote, and do group work. I would like to start traveling and offering more and more in the form of retreats and whatever else may unfold. I am about to start my studies to become an Integrative Nutritional Health Coach so I can offer a full spectrum of health and wellness to my clients and help them heal and grow in all aspects of their lives. Many folks may consider the energy healing I do as “woo” but, believe me, we are all energetic beings and energy heals. I have seen the results of this work and it is incredible. My work is extremely powerful and causes shifts on all levels of one’s being. It is something that must be experienced as it is truly beyond words.
Building my business has really taken time, creativity, patience, and fortitude. It has been a balance of following my intuition, trusting that what needs to happen on the outer level will unfold as it should, and going for it. My passion and reason why I do all of this is to help as many people as I can transform and heal themselves so they can find their own inner freedom, their happiness, and their light. I am really excited for my next chapter as to be able to incorporate nutrition, health, and wellness coaching in addition to what I already offer, is going to lead to incredible results. I truly know that this is going to create endless possibilities both for myself and for my clients.
To heal is a process of true transformation. It takes time and it takes not only a powerful healer to assist but a client who is willing to do the work alongside them. One of my favorite pieces about the work I do is watching my clients unfold. It is to watch them slowly realize that they are the powerful ones, they have the ability to access whatever it is they want to become. I am just the one who helps them to shed those layers, awaken, and realize it. We all have the potential to heal ourselves, we all have the potential to create what it is that we want in our lives. Ultimately, we need to trust ourselves and trust that we are right where we are supposed to be. We need to take responsibility for ourselves and acknowledge that if we want to feel different, be different, grow into the best version of ourselves, then we need to take our power back. We are the only ones who can take control of our lives and change the outcome of it! Are you ready to do the work?

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my best friend was visiting for a week in Durango, I would definitely suggest summertime! Durango is the outdoor lover’s paradise, literally. I would plan for us to go on several different hikes. Two of my favorites are Ice Lakes outside of Silverton or Engineer Mountain. Sometimes it is fun just to take a short hike to Spud Lake. We could hit the river and float from Oxbow down to either 32nd or 9th street.  Lake Nighthorse is another beautiful place to paddle board. Vallecito Lake is an amazing place to spend a day. Pagosa Hot Springs has always been one of my favorites but, now Durango has upgraded ours and it is awesome! We could jump on bikes and take a ride down the river path to downtown in order to walk around, have a drink, and stop in some shops. As far as restaurants go, it is great to either go to Union House or 11th Street Station as they both have awesome outdoor places to sit, live music, and food trucks. Pop Sushi is another one of my favorites. It is never a bad idea to just host a BBQ in my backyard and hang with some of my closest friends.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
This question is really difficult to answer as there have been so many influences that have gotten me to where I am today. I have literally had teachers who helped me to awaken, who guided me to want to learn more, who helped to direct me on my path, and who ultimately helped teach me how to step into who I am here to be. Then, there are other teachers, whether they are aware or not, who assisted me through this journey simply by helping me to learn lessons about myself through my interactions and involvement with them. Some of them supported me, others tested and challenged me, some were instigators for me to go through my hardest times, and others were the catalyst for me to become even stronger and more creative in my endeavors. With that being said, I would like to thank each and every one of them.

However, if I had to choose one person who really helped to start all of this for me, it would have to be Beverly Anderson. She is the one who recognized my talents and gifts and assisted me with stepping into them. She is the one who I initially studied under who shifted my entire course in life. Little did I know when I started studying with her that my life would be completely different in a matter of years and that through her guidance I would not only find my passion in my life, which is to be a healer but, I would also find myself, which has been the most beautiful lesson of it all. Through her, I now know I want to pass on the gift and teach others so they can do the same.
