For the first time, Jewel will be sharing a sneak peak of the actual mindfulness exercises she used to retrain her brain, so that she could be the architect of her life rather than the victim of it. Jewel’s passion is for everyone to know that the power to be happy does not depend on who we are or what we have, but what we choose to think.  Join her as she shares her own story of not only overcoming pain and setbacks, but of using them to become more resilient and fulfilled
