Jill is a passionate advocate of mental health and wellness. She has years of experience in event planning and has decided to use her skills towards creating her own boutique company, Brave Hearts Workshops. As a clinician, I love doing workshops and retreats but do not enjoy doing the planning outside of the clinical content. This is where Jill’s skill set is so very valuable. Partnering will Brave Hearts allows me to do what I love to do best and allows Jill to do the same. If you have a strong following but need support with event site planning, food, etc. I recommend partnering with Brave Hearts.

Jill is an amazing leader and the HOPE.HEALTH. & HEALING virtual event I attended in March 2021 was so inspiring. Her own story is incredible as well as the other speakers that also shared their personal stories. Everyone that spoke was real, raw and from the heart. It is so awesome as well as heartwarming to be connected to so many faith-based thought leaders, to affirm that I am on the right path in sharing my own message. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your wonderful group!

I had the privilege to join the Hope, Health & Healing online webinar on Friday, March 12th. Wow! I was so touched by each of the speaker’s stories that they shared in the webinar. Hearing their stories of adversity in their lives and how they overcame these trials was just inspiring for me. I was ready to give in to the struggles that I have been dealing with in my life until I heard the wisdom of these wonderful women who shared how they overcame their obstacles in life. They talked about never giving up on your dreams because someday you will achieve them by pressing forward. Their words have helped me to press on in my own journey. Thank you, Jill Jacobs Reynolds, for putting this wonderful webinar together and for inviting me to join and listen to stories of hope and faith! I look forward to attending many more future events that you will offer.

The event was outstanding and majestical. The music interludes helped integrated experience. Breakout rooms were flash communities: professional, at the same time personal. I was able to heal a memory that happened when I was 9 years old. Very uplifting to forgive forward, backward, and inside. Really good job, Jill.

Brave Heart Workshops. Jill kept encouraging me to attend a weekend retreat. I had some trepidation, not fully knowing what it was about. In addition, I was not in a place where I had enough money to go. Jill provided me a partial scholarship that allowed me to go. The weekend was such a breakthrough - truly Life Changing! For all ages - I am in my 50’s, and my healing journey catapulted onto an entirely new & powerful path. Colleen O

Last July, I had the pleasure of attending one of the Brave Heart Workshop retreats held in Nashville, Tennessee. The organizer was Jill Reynolds. The facilitator was Dr. Laura Wood. It was a great experience. I got to experience Drama Therapy. It was an unforgettable experience, truly. Not only did I get a chance to visit Nashville, the city of music, but also, and more importantly, I got to experience Drama Therapy and heal my childhood traumas. Jill was super responsible and caring. She helped to arrange hotels, flights, transportation, meals and took us to concerts. She had an eye to discover talents. Because Dr. Wood was one of the most intuitive and skilled therapists as I discovered over the course of the weekend. The healing work was transformative and fun at the same time. The combination of performance and healing really made it much less intimidating and more spontaneous. I truly enjoyed the workshop and recommends it to anyone who has an interest in personal healing or psychology in general.

Freeing…..I have attended two Brave Heart Workshops — an incredible experience both times. Jill has so much experience with different modalities of personal wellness, which makes her retreats so successful. I have personally enjoyed the drama therapy workshop weekends- which have brought much clarity and freedom to my own journey. Jill has a heart and a passion for wellness in body, mind, and spirit, coupled with the skills to make these workshops run efficiently. She balances therapeutic story and bodywork with time and space for effective rest, reflection, and rejuvenation.

Both Brave Heart Workshops I attended were great experiences for me, opening a door to some issues from my past I was unaware of before. It was challenging, but one of the most enlightening opportunities of my life! I discovered the root of my trauma and was able to take home what I learned in the workshop and fully heal, conquer my fears, and confront major obstacles in my life. I learned about my strength, my desires, my needs, and my true authentic self. I am now a social worker and therapist practicing from a place of solidarity, clarity, and a grounded foundation. I found my voice and my freedom. I feel so blessed, grateful, inspired, and hopeful that others can do the same through Jill’s workshops.

Brave Heart Workshops showed up at such a crucial time in my life and made an incredible impact I will never forget. Jill puts together a wonderful program. I cannot say enough.

When Jill first encouraged me to attend a Brave Heart retreat my automatic response was that of anxiety and the belief this concept was not in the parameters of my comfort zone. As I witnessed Jill‘s passion and anticipation of the upcoming retreat and more information was presented I reconsidered. Maybe that is what I must do- step outside the parameters of my comfort zone. I began to feel that was exactly what I needed to do in order to pursue a different avenue of healing trauma - one I hadn’t explored before- drama therapy. The idea of getting up in front of a group of people and working through my issues was frightening at first. Immediately there was a camaraderie with the other women. I felt completely safe and comfortable sharing parts of my story. I was so moved by the kindness, compassion, and support that my inhibition dissipated being in such an accepting environment. I had a sense of belonging and felt the freedom to open up in ways I have never imagined before. The atmosphere was so comfortable relaxed and welcoming. I felt such a privilege to have Dr. Laura Wood as a facilitator. Both Dr. Wood and Jill are gifted communicators with an extraordinary level of compassion and intuitive caring that provided me a process to move toward healing while also feeling safe. That experience was profound for me. The next year there was no hesitation to sign up. I was excited about continuing to unravel the layers of trauma. Being at the retreat enabled me to take my health and wellness to a higher level and equip me to empower myself to make some powerful changes in my life. I totally endorse the professionalism and integrity of Jill Reynolds. With her depth of concern and care for others' wellness, she brings a high level of experience to succeed in the event she plans.
