Pam Gibson, a tap dancer at 5, a gymnast at 15 and a mother of 3 by 30.

LISA ELLER

Lisa Eller has been a Massage therapist and a certified Zero Balancing practitioner in Charlottesville for 19 years. Three years ago she encountered the simplicity of the basic principles underlying this experience we are all living. Running a business, parenting, relationships, are all easier and more fluid now. Lisa endeavors to share what she has learned and spread more ease.

"In working with Jeanne Catherine, I’ve realized that the more I am deeply grounded in the understanding for myself of the Three Principles, the less I need tools and ways to grow my business. I have faith in my own ideas coming forward to do this. Jeanne has been profoundly effective in helping me see this. She has an uncanny sense of knowing what is needed in the moment. As a result of this course and our conversations, I feel I am in the best place to know what is best to work for me in growing my business than I have ever been and welcome the opportunities available."

Joanne Hillard 

"To me it feels like complete divine intervention that caused me to be introduced to Jeanne Catherine (& Divine Play)! I feel so fortunate to have her as a mentor. Jeanne's warm, accessible, vivacious and gentle demeanor--in combination with her unbelievable ability to listen and crystalize what is really going on--is so incredibly helpful, and fun! Jeanne, you are a powerful helper and a magnet for many! I hope our paths cross often in the years to come!"

Joanna Hill, MSW, California, 

"Jeanne Catherine-Gray has a highly developed skill set that transcends traditional notions of what the term skill set was devised for. Yes, she has all the necessary business acumen acquired from building a successful Three Principles-based enterprise; but, what seems to set her apart from others is her ability to connect a student’s or client’s heart to the heart of what’s really important and impactful in pursuing a viable enterprise of one’s own — that vital, ignore-at-your-own-peril wellspring of wisdom within each of us."

Joel Drazner

"I have just watched the 8th session of Business of 3 Principles. I loved it. I loved the whole series. I loved your honesty! For me it was …WOW…you just say how it is for you and bring examples from your practice to illustrate points."

Dorothy Martin

"Thank you, very helpful and enjoyable! The actual program focused on helping us see how formless spiritual wisdom and habitual thinking are playing in the arena of business. What was most impactful was observing Jeanne working with us, responding to people's questions. I learned a lot from Jeanne's honesty and inner comfort." 

Karolina Galdych

"I hadn’t realized how much more confident I was in sharing the principles until I actually went out and did just that to a group of people that had never heard of them before. It was so much fun to watch people engage with the material and glean insights from each other. Throughout the day there were times when a response to a question would come to me - and other times when it didn’t - and both felt equally OK. This group [with Jeanne] has quieted down the noise in my head that there is a “right” way to share the principles and that I must find that right way." 

Julie Gray

"When I think of Jen, I think of fun, playfulness, ease and grace. She is a supportive listener committed to my well being and aliveness and that of all peoples. Well worth the investment in time, energy, money. Jen offers a gentle approach that reflects my own clarity back to me." My experience during the four days with Jen was both profound and totally pragmatic. Things just look different, from how I handle a conversation at work to how I pray with my children at night."
