About the Guest: 

Jennifer (Lumina) Hasenyager, a former conventional physician turned coach and energy healer, embodies a courageous journey towards authenticity and personal growth. Leaving her roles as Physician, Professor, and Eye Surgeon marked a pivotal moment in her life, setting her on a path of genuine self-discovery. Jennifer’s passion for knowledge integration led her from medicine to neuroscience-based executive Coaching to functional medicine and eventually to shamanic energy healing. She’s also been a healthcare technology consultant and author of a memoir chronicling her transformative journey.

Her own health challenges led her to explore alternative healing approaches including natural medicine and energy healing. Jennifer possesses a powerful intuitive side. She’s a trained shamanic healer and Divine Feminine priestess who believes that many chronic problems of the body, mind and spirit are learning opportunities for our own growth that can often be better addressed at the energetic level.

Jennifer’s academic background is impressive, with degrees from Cornell University, the University of Chicago, and ophthalmology training at UCSF. She’s an MBA holder, Registered Corporate Coach, and certified in Functional Medicine.
