    CUTV News Radio spotlights Jeanne Byrd of Reignite Your Life

    in Motivation

    Culver City, CA – Many of us have big dreams for our lives, but somehow those dreams have been deferred by the responsibilities of our day-to-day living. That extra special “thing” that would truly put us in the center of our “A” life has remained frustratingly elusive.


    Jeanne is an International transformative coach and the founder of Reignite Your Life, where she offers transformative coaching and workshops to help people evolve beyond their past limitations and produce the life of their dreams.


    “People come to me because they know there is a course correction that needs to be made. They’re unfulfilled in some way,” says Jeanne. “I encourage people to set their intentions for what it is they want to create in their life. We start with a blank canvas and we listen to those desires that we have thought away with our mind and bring them back to the forefront of our awareness and consciousness."


    According to Jeanne, transformation begins with naming of your unique creative impulse. Our creative impulses are our inner longings. All too often we sweep them under the rug or think them out of existence. Jeanne teaches her clients to become present and available to their own creative impulses.


    It was only after a successful 26-year career in the film industry as a script supervisor that Jeanne discovered her true calling. Today, Jeanne uses film as a healing modality, inviting her clients to create their own movie based on their deepest desires – Their Future Self Movie!


    “You’re going to reframe the past events of your life and create movie about the deeper truth of who you are and your future self as it moves through life. Then it’s ‘Lights, Camera, Action!’”

    Wanda's Picks Radio Show

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forbearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!
