Wilderness Instructor goes from Bed-Ridden to Black Belt.

Hello, My name is Jaclyn Ouillette, I am a Maine native, traveler and mom. I want to share with you that although I speak about My Lyme Disease Journey, Lyme is NOT my story. It has been a catalyst for an even greater opportunity to really LIVE and experience a Life that was way beyond my dreams. Being bed-ridden for 2 1/2 years with unimaginable pain, and living in a “cave” because the light and sound were excruciating to my body, really shifted the way I see and experience life.

I am in Lyme Remission now. There are no know cures for Lyme, so I had to navigate my own way back to health. The journey taught me how to fight for my health, and to go for what I really want in life. It helped me to learn to navigate through tough situations and trust my intuition and spiritual sight especially when I couldn’t see the path ahead. I began a jewelry business, studied with the Four Winds Society (world reknown for their energy medicine training), traveled to visit Ancient sites in Peru, Greece, and Mexico, Founded a Guiding Company to empower Women, and have become a black belt and Martial Arts Instructor.

I have been traveling and speaking around the US and Canada since 2012. I speak about real Transformation, I speak about my Wilderness Adventures & what I learned while living in my car alone and exploring the US. I speak to Empower Women to find their unique direction & purpose, to Inspire them to expand their edges and to go way beyond what they think they can do.
