“Our steadfast faith in our limitations keeps us operating at only a fraction of our true potential.” - Jason Pickard 

Most people, when they discover their passion and purpose, do all that they can to become a master of it.  But what if you grow up passionate about so many things because your real interest is in understanding the nature of Reality and in exceeding known limits of human possibilities? 

Jason Pickard knew, as a young teen, that he wanted to be a trader on Wall St. He quickly rose through the ranks to become one of the Top 30 traders under 30 years old. But after achieving unprecedented success on Wall St., while losing his health and almost his life in the process, he began pursuing his interests in yoga, martial arts, the visual arts, music, philosophy, meditation, and the healing arts –– from an Eastern, Western, and Indigenous perspective –– with some of the leading living masters in each of these fields. 

Since retiring in 2019 from his position as partner and portfolio manager at Tudor Investment Corp, one of the world’s most esteemed hedge funds, Jason’s primary focus has been his work in private counseling and coaching. He also works with businesses, groups, and other organizations as a group process facilitator. His specific passion is to help improve human performance and optimization by supporting people to find purposefulness and meaning in all the significant events of their lives.

Jason is a member of the board of the Contemplative Sciences Center at the University of Virginia. Over the last five years, he has led Pickard Fellowship retreats that give undergraduate business school students an opportunity to learn wellness and mindfulness so that they stay conscious and healthy while pursuing their vision in the business world. 
 
He is a Holistic Life Coach Level 2 at the CHEK Institute, and has worked privately with Paul Chek for over 10 years, as his longest running private client.  

He is currently training at the Process Work Institute in Portland Oregon with many senior faculty members and therapists, and is pursuing a Diplomate diploma.  Process Work, developed by Dr. Arnold Mindell, is a rich and varied way of perceiving the world, people, and groups.  It is an innovative and highly successful methodology for working with individuals, couples, families, groups, communities and organizations.

Jason lives in upstate NY with his beloved wife Kara and his three children.
