Jaki is based in Calgary, Alberta and offers her services through her healing practice, private training/mentoring, workshops, gathering circles/ceremonies, and her practitioner training program in The Five Element Medicine Path. She is recognized as a Spiritual Elder in her community, and combines her own experiences with Nature and Spirit (which she describes in her books) with over 20 years of ceremonial training with a traditional Cree Elder.
Please note: Jaki is not First Nations so cannot place her experiences in that context and culture.

Herbal Wisdom Through the Sacred Medicine Path
NEW offering for 2024-2025
I am truly excited to be offering a program that is the culmination of my life’s learning.
This is a program about plants and herbs and the knowledge and wisdom that can be gained by learning from them. We will be eating, drinking, preserving, fermenting, creating medicines, using them in ceremony, and much more. It’s a course about plants as friends, plants as food, and plants as medicine, but no single approach takes priority over the others, except perhaps plants as teachers.
The curriculum is fluid, based on what Mother Natures offers in a given year and a given season. We will spend two years together, one Saturday per month (except for Dec/Jan), outdoors in Nature when we can, indoors when we must.This then, is a program that leads you in the direction of coming to know plants and herbs. They will teach you, they will befriend you, they will heal you and they will enrich you. Would you like to join me?
Program Dates May 2024 - October 2025

Book Reading Chap 1-3
Watch and Listen as Jaki reads Chapters 1-3 from her latest book that introduces a remarkable feature of ancient Chinese Medicine; the precise understanding of how the timing of the sun as it moves across the sky affects our internal timing and organ function, now known as circadian rhythm. Written from the perspective of an eager young apprentice learning from the wise Master, it gently introduces the ‘clock’ that reveals our internal patterns of ebb and flow, affecting mind, body, emotion, and spirit, alerting us to how we can align with these natural cycles to improve our health, wellness, and happiness.

Stacey Chisholm took a moment to stop and kiss her 3 year old son goodbye. “Mommy will be back in time to tuck you into bed. I’m just going to the hospital for some tests.” Little did she know that it would be a month before she saw him again. And not only did her soon-to-be-diagnosed deep brain abscess progress at remarkable speed, resulting in paralysis, she had no way of knowing that the healing she would be blessed to receive would be out of this world.
