We had the good fortune of connecting with Jana Moon and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jana, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
“Deep and simple is far more essential than shallow and complex.” – Mr. Rogers This quote helps me answer many of the questions I’m faced with regarding my business and in my personal life as well. Decisions about what I offer to my clients and, most importantly, how I offer my services and interact with each client has long been informed by the philosophy that depth of meaning outweighs volume and will outlast any trend. Paying attention to what is meaningful and simple in my personal life as well has yielded more joy and satisfaction than any form of complexity no matter how interesting.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
When I was very young I told my mother that I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I grew up, but I wanted to help people. As time passed, deriving joy from helping others carried me through college, early work in publishing, into massage therapy training, certification as a Reiki Master, and certification through the Upledger Institute, Along the way, I learned to keep it simple and meaningful. Simplicity is only significant if there is depth of meaning attached to it. This has saved me countless hours as so many marketing fads have come and gone, the latest products have bloomed and faded, and even a few modality trends have waxed and waned. And this established a practice my clients can trust. A place where they are met as they are, offered support and care for body/mind/spirit, in the least invasive and gentlest way, with space held for their transformation where I rely on a solid skill set in Reiki, CranioSacral Therapy and other tools along with a deep belief that healing finds us when we open to our deepest, quietest, inner world. I also help people by teaching Reiki classes. It’s a wonderful healing modality that is simple, natural, and easy. Anyone can benefit from its use, and it’s very easy and fun to learn.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’d take a visiting friend to Bishop Arts. Nova has great food, and the area is filled with interesting shops. Then to East Dallas for a stop at Leila Bakery and Cafe and shopping at Jimmy’s Italian market. Fort Worth would also be on the list – the museum district, Mi Familia for Mexcian food, and a stroll around Sundance Square. Then I’d suggest a drive to Waxahachie for a latte and snack on the porch of the White Rhino Coffee shop, then a drive around town looking at all the wonderful historic homes.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
