Jane has a way of gently walking you through steps to change your heart to be in a place of bliss!

With the knowledge of this book, it is possible to live in a place of deep contentment with life as it is – each day! What we perceive as a “struggle” or “difficult situation” is really a door of opportunity to insight of experience that will make you stronger and able to dwell in a more peaceful place, and with Jane’s wisdom through her words this is possible . This is a book that you don’t just read, you feel its power in your heart. Allow the words to drop from your mind into your heart and you will be blessed. Om Shanti, my wonderful Jane!”

If you’re looking for a book that inspires happiness, yet understanding to the complexities of life and leaves you with a feeling of strength and inspiration, you have found a match.”


“When I received this book as a gift from a friend, I had no idea that it would be the next catalyst to propel me into uncharted territory of self-discovery. Jane’s words and teachings spoke to the very heart of who I know I can be. In a world that operates at a baseline frequency of striving/struggling, the lessons in this book are powerful in their simplicity: “Loving Kindness helps us get off the train of continuously suffering and longing to be a different version of ourselves.” When was the last time you were given permission to take care of yourself first? That is exactly what Jane offers. Through storytelling, guided journaling exercises, and real time lessons woven into a compelling personal narrative, Jane reaches through the pages and into your heart in a way that only a true spiritual healer can.”


“This beautiful, gentle book, A Heart of Gold: Lessons on the Path of Loving Kindness will be my new ongoing guide. In addition to inspiring stories and reminders of how being good to oneself spreads pe ace and joy outward, this companion offers abundant meditations and guided journaling. You can even go to the author’s website for more guided meditations and guided yoga! It’s just what I needed at a time when I’m craving rejuvenation and seeking to slow down and see the world through more loving eyes. I highly recommend this quick but powerful read, especially to those who need a reset button.”
