A little about Me...
I Am Passionate About My Work
For more than 45 years Jennifer Ayana Harrison has used her natural attraction to natural healing and metaphysics to design a healing environment in her home. Years ago her family said she was from "another planet." Now they say she was ahead of her time.
Who is Jennifer Ayana Harrison?
Jennifer Ayana Harrison is a certified Health and Wellness Practitioner, Compassionate Wellness Coach, Educator, Author, and Community Advocate with more than 45 years of experience working to improve the lives of others. Ayana, the name she prefers to be called is known for her passion and long-standing position on nutrition, herbal/energy medicine, and natural healing.
Her most memorable spiritual awakening began at the mature age of 43, after being told in her early twenties she was unable to bear children. To the surprise of her gynecologist, Ayana became pregnant and eventually gave birth to identical twin sons. To her astonishment, from that moment on, she became a witness to the truth that all things are possible to those who believe in the power of unconditional love and forgiveness. Subsequently, her life would never be the same. Inspired by the death of her mother in 2003 and 3 sisters within 5 years apart she re-committed herself to becoming a Health and Wellness Coach and Educator promoting healthy lifestyle changes in reducing mental and emotional stress associated with chronic illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disorders, cancer and more.
Understanding the effects of emotional stressors on the body-mind-spirit, she shares her life experiences to uplift and educates others on becoming proactive in the overall care and maintenance of their health.
Ayana is particularly concerned with the most vulnerable in our communities including children and seniors, and advocates on their behalf through her educational programs, books, community service, and health and wellness coaching practice.
Mission-driven, Ayana has long promoted a philosophy of education and self-care to empower individuals to maintain good health and offers her program “Real Health Care begins with Self-Care” campaign.
Through her educational training programs, workshops, presentations, and community activism, Ayana seeks to educate and support individual and community groups and organizations to help empower people to make better-informed decisions about their health by providing meaningful and relevant information.
To that end, Ayana serves on several communities and institutional committees, including the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Center to Reduce Cancer Disparities, as Co-Chair of the Community Advisory Group. She is also a member of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Transitional Research- Community Research Advisory Council; the University of Maryland Patients Program-Think Tank Committee and several health and wellness causes including Cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease/Memory Loss Prevention, and Caregiver Support.
Ayana is a Certified Diabetes Prevention Lifestyle Coach through the CDC-Center for Disease Control and a Certified Medstar Chronic Disease Self-Management Trainer with cross-training in both Diabetes and Hypertension. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Social Welfare from Antioch College, a postgraduate certification in Wellness Coaching from Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia Institute for Healing Arts); a BA degree in Metaphysical Science from the University of Metaphysics -Sedona where she is currently pursuing a master's degree in the same field.
She is a much sought-after speaker and the author of 3 books; "Awakening Conversations with Self," "What it means to Be Well-Mind, Body, and Spirit," and "What's in the Waiting" You can't plan your existence You can only live in it Now," and 2 CD's "Making a Commitment to Yourself" and “Affirmations and Meditations by Ayana."
The most important thing to me:
"Quiet time for meditation and prayer which helps me remember my true nature and connection with God and the Universe. I prefer the outdoors, connecting with Mother Nature where I feel the most connected. I enjoy relaxing in the sun, especially by the ocean. It is very replenishing and soothing to my spirit."
Words to grow by:
"Remember who you are by finding time to celebrate your divinity. Always remember to express unconditional love and forgiveness 2 major factors in the healing process, and for living a more meaningful and rewarding life. Above all, remember to be grateful for all that you do have and remain peaceful."
