ENERGY PRACTITIONER AND TEACHER
Jill Leigh has been an energy practitioner and teacher for more than 27 years. As a child, Jill’s energetic abilities showed up in the form of telepathic communication with certain wild animals. Her sense of connection to the natural world was in many ways deeper and more satisfying than her relationships with family and friends. She was able to enjoy this profound connection until the age of 11, when it finally shut down due to being labeled “a bad thing” by the adults around her.
Later in her adulthood, while working in the corporate world, Jill experienced a spontaneous reactivation of her abilities. Ungrounded and unprepared for what she was experiencing, Jill was encountering and communicating with spirits on her land. In the throes of chronic fatigue and auto-immune issues, she made the decision to heal herself and learn more about regulating her energy.
I was in my early 30s and I didn’t want to continue experiencing chronic fatigue and auto-immune issues. These symptoms are very common with people who are energetically porous, and therefore not able to contain and regulate energy.
As she straddled the corporate and spiritual worlds, Jill kept the two very separate from one another to avoid the risk of appearing “crazy.” Despite the two-world approach she was taking, her abilities still crept in, and allowed her to intuit what coworkers and clients were experiencing, helping them to feel seen and understood. When she chose to end her corporate life, Jill moved forward full-time into spiritual work.
Now, twenty-seven years later, Jill is the founder and director of the Energy Healing Institute, an online and classroom-based school that caters to seasoned integrative practitioners and those wishing to expand upon their energetic knowledge base. Jill’s breadth of expertise with energy, clairvoyance, conscious channeling and the planes of consciousness allow her to deeply connect with students, broadening their perspective and helping them integrate energy healing into their client practices. Her teaching style is organized, logical, hands-on and playful—and delivered with absolute integrity and the highest standards of teaching protocols.
As a teacher and practitioner, she enjoys dissolving limiting paradigms and shifting the beliefs and thought processes that block people from taking personal control of their healing and evolution. Jill empowers every student and client to be their own healer, and to see themselves as who they really are—and to take ownership for what they are creating and manifesting.
Jill writes a regular column for SpiritualityHealth.com, and has developed an online course on evolving relationships and shifting longstanding patterns with energy practices for their online course offerings.
When Jill isn’t teaching or working with clients, she enjoys writing, traveling, gardening, beekeeping, working out, cooking and being a foodie. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her beloved bulldog Penny.
"I do this work because I believe in the body’s innate ability to heal. I believe in the process that occurs when someone moves into inner alignment and energetic coherence."
