Jesse Stewart ~ Founder / Director of Power for Conscious Living
For over 30 years I have made it my life to support others as a spiritual teacher, yoga instructor, mentor, facilitator and skilled friend --- in the journey of life. Having conducted hundreds of workshops, classes and circles, and thousands of hours of one-to-one facilitation as a spiritual psychotherapist, I live to serve and serve to live. My passion is to continually live each moment and relationship as if it is simultaneously the first and last moment of life. The growth of Power For Conscious Living is a dream coming true to offer a comprehensive, community-based growth hub to replace the goat learning of "nibbling here and there" so common today.
My richest asset is what I have received from great modern luminaries such as Dr. Rudolf Steiner, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Bruce Lipton and Paramahansa Yogananda, to name a few. I have sought widely, both in eastern and western paths, for the best knowledge and practices for safe and effective consciousness raising and personal development. I am conversant in both the realms of science and spirituality, and seek a reunification of both in Spiritual-Science, and see this as imperative for the future well-being of the planet and humanity. My training in psychotherapy allows me to blend ancient and modern practices and perspectives. My grounded experience empowers me to effectively guide people from the most basic practices to advanced techniques and understanding.
I have had the privilege of personally working with great teachers: Dr. Barbara Forest (LifeSpace Institute), Dr. Samuel Sagan (Clairvision School of Meditation), Dr. Robert Gilbert (Vesica Institute), Dr. Ibrahim Karim (Biogeometry), Dr. V.P. Wierwille (Way Corps: 4 Year Spiritual Warrior Training), Dr. Rene Querido (Rudolf Steiner College), as well as many others such as Dennis Klocek, Brian Gray and Coenraad Van Houten. I have also done a Shaman training with Don Oscar Miro-Quesada Solevo, respected curandero and originator of Pachakuti Mesa Tradition cross-cultural shamanism, as well as worked with plant-spirit medicine in Peru.
My interests have led me into a wide range of studies and positions to foster growth and healing in others. I am trained in Waldorf education, Biogeometry, NLP (Neuro-Linguistics Programming), Focusing (Gendlin), Therapeutic Touch, Rekki, chakra healing and Landmark Forum. I am a multi-instrumentalist musician and regularly hold sound and meditation circles, vision quests and talks on Spiritual-Science.
I taught courses for the Hospice Association, going into medical and long-term care facilities to teach medical staff, doctors, nurses, administrators and support workers communication skills when addressing patients at the end of life and their family.
When my life fell apart, it put me on a path that led to working with adults as a spiritual psychotherapist. Then I trained as a Waldorf School teacher, working with children. Now I am in a position to work with the "inner child in adults." This is where the gold lies, as we dig deeper into ourselves and mine the true value within.
The birth of Power for Conscious Living and the Spiritual Bootcamp is the fulfillment of a desire to provide a systematic training that blends Kriya-Tantra yoga, relationship skill building and spiritual development; to intertwine and re-educate the sexual, the social and the spiritual aspects of human existence (body, mind and spirit).
Author of 2 books and working on a third, my joy is to continue learning and growing, to challenge myself and others to discover better ways to live; to find the spiritual edge and cut through the fear, self-doubt, shame and any other self-sabotaging baggage that needs to be transformed. There is no sky!
My supreme pleasure is to be a part of a community of individuals who seek to stand together as pillars, co-holding the space for a spiritual/scientific revolution ... and see what we can do together as a team. Go Team!
