A California native, Jackie Stewart moved to New York City with a sense of adventure, a B.A. in both Communication Studies and Leadership in Organization, and an introspective nature. Fascinated with interpersonal relationships and a ravenous appetite for learning, she continued her education at New York University, graduating with a Master’s degree from the School of Culture, Education, and Human Development . At the same time, Jackie was also building a strong presence for herself within the global fashion and entertainment communities as a model (portfolio) and actress (IMDB). Paralleling these two major forces, the need for finding a mindful balance between those external worlds and her own inner life of feeling “whole and enough” became very clear, very quickly. An explorer at heart, Jackie began to discover how to look within. On retreat at a monastery in Nepal, she deeply connected with Tibetan Buddhist teachings and has been exploring the various lineages in earnest ever since. Having completed The Interdependence Project's meditation teacher training, The Open Center's Integrative Sound and Music practitioner certification, as well as UC Berkeley’s Science of Happiness Program she hopes to fuse this inner and outer world connection for others.
Jackie can be found in NYC teaching meditation and mentoring teacher trainees at MNDFL, online with Alo Moves, and on your smart device through the Journey LIVE app. She is the mindfulness advisor for Rose & Rex, where she regularly contributes mindful parenting articles. She also sits on the team of support experts at Phoebe, a personalized community nurturing women through their transformation into motherhood. Jackie brings mindfulness into action through involvement in social activism, leading corporate meditations, philanthropic work, and most recently- motherhood. She invites her community in as family by co-facilitating Sound Meditations alongside her husband throughout New York City (jimmyandjackie.com).
