For over 25 years, I have fallen asleep and woken up to the sound of water from my home base of Block Island, RI, in the US, or while living on the Big Island, Maui, or Bacalar, Mexico. What a blessing to be shaped and guided directly from the element of water itself! I didn't always know this, but as time went on I surrendered to what the water wanted from me and became a janzu healer and retreat leader. My love of poetry, dance and song is woven into my work as a healer. When I take someone in my arms in the water we are in ceremony. We offer ourselves with innocence and trust to be cleansed by the water and witnessed as we let go and transform. Aquaflow is a living poem, a dance of gratitude, a blessing to the Great Mother who carried us in her womb and released us to Earth. We enter the water with longing and are reborn.
"Finding Jen was providence. Her Janzu therapy came at a time in my life where everything was shifting for me. A rebirth. A transformation. Janzu was such a beautiful and deeply meditative experience. Profound, actually. I LOVED IT.
It immersed me in the healing waters of Mother Ocean, allowed me to go inward and naturally allowed me to hold my breath for as long as was comfortable. I felt as if I was travelling through the waters to a distant place that I recognized. Home.
Janzu rebirth was at once a movement, a dance, and a COMPLETE SURRENDER.
I highly suggest Jen and her services for a transformative and lasting experience like none other. I imagine it is a very personal and individualized experience. A deep healing experience.
I often dream of the experience and am immediately at peace. Jen, I can't wait for next time."

“Jen Lighty is a guide, a priestess, a mythologist, a story-teller and a scholar, Jen has spent her life preparing for her work helping others achieve transformation into their own beauty–that is, she re-introduces people to themselves and their own sacred journeys. I never understood the concept of ‘finding one’s teacher’ until I began to walk the path with Jen toward clarity, toward compassion, toward the light.” -Lisa Starr, former RI Poet Laureate and founder of The Block Island Poetry Project
Coming from someone who had never heard of janzu, it has been completely life changing. I had absolutely no expectations and finished the first session knowing it would not be my last. The exchange of emotions and spirit from Jen to myself (and vice-versa) allowed me to experience a new and deeper level of connectedness with my mind and body with each additional session. This was only possible due to the trust and support that the amazing Jen provided during and after each session. I now crave the healing effects of janzu, and strongly believe people would benefit from the daily practice of it.
Although I have sadly left Bacalar, where Jen is currently facilitating sessions, I know that the power of healing and the sacred water will always be within me, at an accessible reach. This is only possible because of Jen, who has allowed me to realise my own potential and the potential the water has to heal each and every one of us.
I won't ever be able to thank Jen enough for introducing me to this incredible practice.

"I went into Janzu with little knowledge of what the healing method was and what a session would feel like but I was open to the experience. Jen has such a comforting presence and I felt safe in her arms. At the start of our session there was some internal resistance but one slowly lets go and surrenders to the fluid motion and dance. Jen is a loving conduit that channels the healing powers of water. I felt like I underwent a sacred initiation and I was returned to the womb of the mother and had a gentle but profound release, as I was embraced and held in so much love. Jen cocreated (Or maybe "facilitated" sound better?) this healing ceremony that I will forever be thankful for. It is such a magical gift that she provides that has to be experienced for oneself."

"Wow! Such a phenomenal experience to be guided by Jen's magical touch and shining light and to be set free within the warm, gentle embrace of the Great Salt Pond. A wonderful, life-altering experience that will awaken your soul and make you realize your inner peace is closer than you think. Go Janzu with Jen, and you won't regret it." --Myles Wiesledder, San Francisco, CA, USA
