More About Josephine

A Continual Student of Life

Josephine Sheppard is known as an author and teacher in self-development, spiritual growth, enlightenment, and self-actualization. She has a passion for inspiring others to self-discovery that invokes health, wellbeing, and joy in body, mind, and spirit. Born in Hawaii, and raised in Michigan, she experienced a variety of religions and cultures while in the foster care system in her youth. Josephine has lived in various locations around the United States. Through her exposure and experience, she resonates with many elements of truths found in several religions, cultures, and philosophies. She has dedicated her life to helping people experience alignment with one's higher self and Source Energy, for themselves, through her private practice, and personal endeavors.

She is a regular practitioner of introspection, spiritual journeying, mindfulness, and meditation, and is a continual student of life. She's had three near-death experiences (NDEs), various spiritually transformative life experiences (STEs), and a clear memory of being nonphysical consciousness prior to her birth into this lifetime. These personal experiences have added to her insight, awareness, and enlightenment. It is another aspect of her passion and insight to support and guide others in the process of expanding awareness, and reconstructing subconscious thinking and behavior patterns on the journey of self-actualization, enlightenment, and divine alignment. Josephine began this journey in 1991, and the business has evolved in its services and methodologies, integrating into the "Live in AAWETM" approach - an acronym for living in the art of wellbeing every day, in some way.
