My name is Jasper Jon. I believe that we are all truly whole just as we are, that everything is happening for you – not to you, and that we are all inextricably linked as one. My practice is to become more sensitive as I feel into the truth of this amazing magical thing we call life.
When I was a child, I remember have a deep connection to nature. I would play in the mud, spend my days in the woods and live on the beach if I could. Magic was real for me, present in my waking life.

in 2012 I moved to San Francisco and got a job working as a graphic designer for a tech company on the 25th floor in the financial district. I quickly transitioned into product management. I wore many hats for the years as I helped grow a startup over 10 years from a 50 person company with no valuation, to a 1000 employee, $1.5 Billion company.

I am no one’s guru, just a humble soul, exploring the crazy magical thing we call life.
