Women In Wellness Feature
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN A FEW PARAGRAPHS:
Simply put, I, Jodi Darren, am a passionate, free-spirited and fun-loving soul. I was raised in the small, quaint town of Grand Haven, Michigan and now reside in the vibrant city of Miami. For the last 20 years, I’ve worked as a TV host for many programs revolving around wellness, travel, beauty and entrepreneurship.
My fascination with the human spirit and mindful connection is at the core of what I do. I am an entrepreneur, community builder, workshop facilitator, and a visionary activist. My life is dedicated to supporting people in finding true harmony and alignment.
What are you currently working on?
It has become very apparent to me, that humanity needsVISION. I have worked closely with the topic since 2004 when I co-hosted a series of large scale, community events in Miami called Vision Miami. What I discovered was that when we connect with our life vision we once again find hope, excitement, and begin to tap into the creativity of inspired action. Then, when everyone is tapped into living a life with vision, we ignite synergy and elevate the collective conversation.
In March, I, Jodi Darren, launched a new workshop called The Vision Map Experience. It is a 4 week guided journaling experience where I lead participants through an internal vision quest. Our journey is based on the Bagua of Feng Shui, dividing our life into 9 categories for exploration, as we inquire and discover our life map through a series of questions.
The result has been an inspired community of people masterminding together, sharing ideas and learning from each other as they lead a life of fulfillment.
