Jennifer Whitacre is an empowerment strategist and trauma specialist who works with clients who are ready to create empowerment through self-awareness. Having spent many years spinning her own wheels, Jennifer is all too familiar with how jagged and knotted it feels inside when you feel lost, overwhelmed, and stuck when all you want is to have enough energy and to know what to do. Like a lot of people, she has experienced loneliness in a room full of people, mistrust among family and friends, disconnection from herself, and despair that sent her to the brink of a mental health crisis.
Armed with a lifetime of experience and over 12 years of education in healing, Jennifer has learned how to get beneath the story of why people do what they do and understand where they're coming from. Discovering her own intuition and the power of living by her core values, she has learned a number of ways to raise her self-awareness. She now approaches life more confidently, more empowered, more decisive, and more trusting of her own instincts. It has made a world of difference in her life which is why she so badly wants that for you!
Jennifer is a firm believer in And Consciousness which is not about avoiding or denying extremes; but about expanding one’s own consciousness to make room for the acceptance of both. It’s the acceptance of conflicting truths that exist simultaneously. It’s the acceptance of duality, paradox, contradictions, and opposing extremes that simultaneously exist and thrive in our world. And Consciousness leads to curiosity, understanding, and compassion, which happen to be the antidotes to shame, fear, and judgment. It is Jennifer’s deepest hope the name of her show, Yes, And..., will serve as a gentle reminder of these concepts, all of which guide us along our path of personal growth toward self-actualization.
Truly understand yourself by becoming aware of your own pattern of thoughts and behaviors, and discover the seeds that created those patterns in the first place. Get to the root of the issue so you can gain a new awareness of how your own patterns of thought, behavior, emotion, and perception are holding you back in life so you can finally trust yourself and feel empowered and confident in your own decisions. Don’t miss an episode of the Yes, And… Podcast with Jennifer Whitacre and begin to be more self-aware, challenge conventional thinking, and look at things from different angles.

    74 Reframing Our Human Relationship With The Natural World With Elliott Connor

    We live in a world where people have become more distant from nature. We take it for granted, especially as the world continues to advance. But with global warming becoming more real than ever, it is time that we snap out of our bubble and look into how we are taking care of nature, of the very place we call home. Jennifer Whitacre is joined by none other than the founder and CEO of Human Nature Projects, Elliot Connor, to talk about reconnecting with nature, past the delusion that somehow we're separate from it. Leading an international environmental charity supporting volunteers across 104 countries, Elliot shares with us his mission to reframe our human relationship with the natural world. He also talks about the lessons nature offers us, how it helps us see who we are and how we treat others and discusses the systemic bias that keeps us from closing that gap between us and nature. Join Elliot and Jennifer in this conversation to learn more about how we can reconnect this relationship before it's too late.

Authentic, natural, and powerful

Jennifer Whitacre has a natural ability to put her guests at ease or make them uncomfortable depending on what it takes to get to the heart of their story. If you are a guest, she will help you to learn things about yourself that you either didn’t know or weren’t willing to admit. Because of dealing with her own issues she has a better sense of how to get her guests to reveal their truth so that her listeners can be inspired, motivated, and challenged to address their own personal deamons.
