About Me

Joy + Mindfulness Coach + Fun Captain

Hello! I'm Jillian Schecher coming to you from my sweet little Joy Nest in Edmonton, Canada. I'm a multi-passionate creative, applying everything I know to support others in reclaiming and sharing their Joy so they can wake up to a life they freaking love!

I believe JOY is our natural state and we all have something special to offer simply by being who we are as fully as possible. Often this involves self-compassion and the space to dig into the truth of who we are. I love creating that space for people...I also love LOL-ing! 

Life is made up of a zillion small moments and my goal to live in each one as fully as possible while inspiring others to do the same.

I value Connection, Creativity, Joy and Love. Speaking of love, I love people and loud hard laughs! I also love quiet solitary moments & cozy days filled with candles, self-help books and puppy cuddles — introverted-extrovert (ambivert) over here!

I love adventure and I also love the grounded comfort of home. I am a highly sensitive empath and I've learned to embrace it as a superpower. My biggest desire? To live a brightly lit life from the inside out while supporting, encouraging and inspiring others to do the same...

My Story

I've spent most of my life using Joy as my strategy. I say “most of my life” because there have been times when I was lost...I look back now and can see the places where I left Joy on the side of the road. Where I forgot it while trying to numb other things like pain, grief and anxiety. Where I left myself to rescue others or stayed in discomfort to make others comfortable.  It wasn’t until I chose sobriety and developed a regular meditation practice that I began to befriend my feelings.

After years of not feeling enough, of sacrificing, people-pleasing and numbing, I finally began feeling enough. The secret to all of it? Feeling. Feeling the “good”, and the “bad”.

This is where all of my Joy work stems from. ⁣⁣To me, Joy means having the courage to honour the discomfort in order to begin moving through it.  If there is one thing I continue to relearn and share with others, it's how the ability to feel and move through darkness allows us to experience the light.

To me, Joy means having the courage to honour the darkness in order to begin moving through it.

As the deliberate designer of my life, I now teach people how to feel. How to befriend their emotions and use them as a guide. Our feelings are our compass! I wake up excited to practice and teach The Joy Method™ while creating a space for others to do the same.

No matter where you are or what you’re experiencing, I’m here to say, you and your feelings matter. A LOT.  It’s time for you to feel better, reconnect with Joy and create positive momentum in your life. Allow me to guide you back to yourself. To Joy.

You are powerful AF and I would love to empower you to IGNITE your inner Joy Warrior so that you can become the deliberate designer of a life you are excited about.  

Are you ready to wake up to a life you love?  Book a connection call today!
