My name is Jenn Brown, and I’m on a quest for quiet.

I’m interested in finding the pockets of stillness in day-to-day life and helping others access those moments too.

Why? Because when the chatter of the world drops away, and the nonsense of my own mind abates, I find life a most amazing gift. There is awe, wonder, curiosity, joy, beauty, and excitement.

What I find in silence and stillness isn’t just vast emptiness. I find endless possibility and potential and the inspiration to keep learning, meeting, absorbing, knowing, and not knowing.

In my professional life, I’m a freelance writer and editor, working mostly in the spirituality and holistic health field, writing for organizations like the Omega Institute, 1440 Multiversity, and the Eileen Fisher Learning Lab, as well as for individual teachers.

I’m also trained as a horticulturist and visit cultivated and wild places every chance I get. I am a student of Zen with the Living Compassion sangha, and am currently studying the Feldenkrais Method, which is what Zen would be if it were put into motion.

I occasionally teach meditation classes outside and work as a garden coach. Contact me if you’re interested in either of these services.
