You won’t find me at either Two Rivers Market today or the Guelph Farmers’ Market tomorrow. I’ll be soaking up aromatherapy insights with my fellow aromatherapists in Toronto at this year’s Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists Conference. Jennifer Jefferies, from Australia, is our special speaker.
Good news! You can pick-up a bottle of Let Me Be Outdoor Meditation Spray (aka insect deterrent; aka bug spray) at the market Saturday morning. My neighbours have generously offered to provide this blend to my supportive customers.
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you next Friday and Saturday.
Jennifer Jefferies – Keynote Bio
The purpose of life isn’t just to live, but to thrive Jennifer Jefferies is The Present Day Wise Woman, one of Australia’s most respected authors and speakers in the area of health and wellbeing, working closely with some of the world’s most well known brands to restore work life balance and minimize presenteeism and absenteeism in their organizations. Experiencing corporate burnout at 27 after a car accident, Jennifer got the wakeup call she needed to realize there is more to life than just having a successful career, and good health was the foundation to build it on.
Turning away from her pharmaceutical management career Jennifer became a passionate naturopath, and for more than 25 years has helped countless individuals improve their lives so they can live their dreams, enjoy life and give back. Subscribing to the philosophy that wealth and success mean nothing without your health, Jennifer authored the 7 Steps to Sanity and thirteen other health-related titles, sharing practical real-life strategies to help teams and individuals improve their health, wellbeing and productivity by finding balance in their lives.
Known for her fun, humorous, no-nonsense approach to healthy living, and her proven ability to motivate others to make positive changes to their lives both inside and outside the workplace, Jennifer is a highly sought after presenter, speaking to corporations in more than a dozen countries including Australia, USA, New Zealand and South-East Asia.
Determined to leave the world a better place, Jennifer has also established The Q Foundation to give health, hope and happiness to children in poverty stricken countries through providing education, health care, accommodation and welfare services.
Self described as a psychedelic, peace and brown rice loving hippie and a passionate, adventurous traveler, when Jennifer isn’t writing or speaking, she is working towards her goal of owning a complete set of Lonely Planet books, purchasing them only once she has traveled to each place.
