Jen is a teacher’s teacher, and my dear friend. I’m delighted and honored to share her wisdom with you. In this conversation, we talk about teaching as a sacred path, as service, as a calling that taps us on the shoulder in unexpected ways and won’t be denied.

We also talk about the practical aspects of teaching — what makes it effective, soul-filled, rewarding, and profitable? How do you know when you’re ready to teach? How do you begin?

If you teach, or want to, sign up for Jen’s program. It’s a remarkably rich and rewarding 6-week journey that will take you to the heart of why and how you teach, and offer you the skills and tools to share what you know, most beautifully. You’ll also learn from the wisdom of more than 44 master teachers whom Jen interviewed for this series — including Natalie Goldberg, Sharon Salzberg, Christina Baldwin, Elizabeth Lesser, Mark Nepo, Parker Palmer, among others.
