Hi, I'm Jenn. I'm a native Californian currently living in San Diego. I'm a high school teacher by day, and world traveler whenever I can fit in the time. In a past life I was a party girl who never met a cocktail or dive bar she didn't like.

About three years ago everything changed. I came home from Costa Rica with a stomach bug and since then I have been dealing with various health issues. Finding healing has put me on a journey and taken me places I never thought I would go. I have learned so much and this is blog is my attempt to share some of my lessons and to document my journey as it progresses.

"No mud, no lotus" is a quote and book title by Thich Nhat Hanh, a Zen Buddhist teacher. He says that true joy can only by found by being in touch with one's suffering. His book spoke to me when I needed it most, and I continue to go back to his teachings again and again on my path to healing and wellness.
