Rev. Jakob Merchant
Jakob is an ordained interfaith minister and a certified BodyTalk practitioner. Healthcare was a central theme in Jakob’s early years where he witnessed the compassionate care from his father as a doctor as well as his mother as a nurse. He realized the paradigm limitation of Cartesian-type medicine and philosophy early in age and this set the context for his further explorations. As a teenager, he studied philosophy, psychology and theology. This led to many life experiences including becoming a yoga teacher, studying psychology and biology the University of Salzburg, Utah State University and Excelsior College, as well as in-depth practice in Dr. David R. Hawkins’ work of Devotional Non-duality.
During this time many deep and transformative experiences led him to become an interfaith minister. As an interfaith minister, he further deepened his knowledge and reverence for all of the world religions as well as their contributions to healing and happiness. Most importantly, he learned that true healing needs to be addressed on all levels – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
The relief of suffering in all its forms has always been a central focus of Jakob’s life: he realized that true healing needs to be a permanent experience. Consciousness-based healthcare is designed to support the self-healing of physical, mental, and spiritual issues and allows a permanent experience of love, peace, and happiness to take its place.
Today Jakob treats people with any kind of ailment from physical diseases to psychological, emotional, and spiritual issues. Many of his clients describe his treatments as life changing. Jakob’s commitment to love and compassion sets the context for all of his sessions, so that his clients may remember that they are already perfect, whole and complete – an expression of love itself.
Jenine is a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner (CBP). Her focus is to help others be vibrantly healthy and able to fulfill their unique purpose in the world. She works simultaneously on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects to address blocks to inner peace, a peace that remains no matter what is happening on the outside. It is from this place of peace that one is best able to fulfill their unique purpose. This is true healing! This is her joy and privilege to share!
Jenine was led to BodyTalk through receiving life-altering treatments from Jakob Merchant, the founder of the Health and Healing Clinic in Sedona, Arizona. After a few sessions, she found her outlook on life was completely transformed – which then shifted life itself – and she embarked on BodyTalk training. She remains astounded and grateful at the healing power of BodyTalk, especially in the hands of a loving, compassionate practitioner.
As far back as Jenine can remember her passion has been to relieve suffering. This passion took her from a child’s dream of being a nurse (which she abandoned as a teen) to working with nonprofits. As an adult, she entered the corporate world once she decided that the best way to relieve suffering was to earn a lot of money and give it away. She went to work for the prestigious consultancy of McKinsey & Company where she assisted executives with strategic planning and marketing. What she eventually discovered is that relief of suffering had to start within. She needed to love and care for herself before she could begin to relieve anyone else’s suffering. She learned that love for self and others is the greatest healer and offers the only lasting relief from suffering.
In Jenine’s own words “Once I had experienced the healing power of love, I was in a place where I could fulfill my unique purpose. It has been such a relief to finally know “what I will be when I grow up”. I’ll still be right here . . . in the present moment . . . immersed in Love. Fully able to fulfill my purpose. I want the same for you”.
