Jennifer Louden is a personal growth pioneer who helped launch the self-care movement with her first book, “The Woman’s Comfort Book”.
I was thrilled to interview her as I read this book when it first came out in 1992 and was impressed at how she captured a real need in the women’s community.
She’s the author of 7 additional books on well-being and whole living and has been teaching retreats and leading workshops since 1992 and creating vibrant on-line communities and innovative learning experiences since 2000.
In this interview, Jennifer shares about her start as a screen writer and didn’t enjoy it.
She came from a family of entrepreneurs so it was a natural next step for her.
She shares about following the “threads in our lives,” and shares her own story in this context. She has now been in business for 24 years, at age 52 she has created a very successful business, very organiy, rather than planned.
Jennifer has spoken around the U.S., Canada and Europe, written a national magazine column for a Martha Stewart magazine, been profiled or quoted in dozens of major magazines, and appeared on hundreds of TV and radio shows, even on Oprah.
She has been teaching retreats and leading workshops since 1992, and creating vibrant on-line communities and innovative learning experiences since 2000. She married her second husband at 50, and is the very proud mom of Lillian and very proud bonus mom to Aidan.
Jennifer shares her wisdom for the listeners: “Find a way to touch in in to the felt experience of unstanable goodness and create your life and business from there. This is different from the place of ‘I have to give to myself or I have to fix something’. It is that place of wow- this is just unbelievably miraculous- this thing called life. How am I going to share it? It is a different and much more joyful touching with a felt sense – vast mystery of wholeness.”
