Jennifer :Ayana" Harrison, Certified Diabetes Lifestyle Prevention Coach, Chronic Disease Self-Management Trainer, Metaphysical Counselor and Spiritual Guide.
Ayana has used her attraction to natural healing and metaphysics to design a healing environment that resonates the minute you enter her sacred space. She believes that real healing begins within; that when we gain a deeper understanding of who we are as spiritual energetic beings, we gain a greater appreciation for ourselves and all life. It is only then that we can explore our untapped potential and begin to use it to establish personal standards for living life to the fullest...with greater love and compassion. She is committed to serving others and is devoted to a lifetime of learning to help uplift and enhance the lives of others. Her life is a testimony to this realization.
"I strong believe that when I serve others I am serving God's Divine plan."
