What has brought you to this work?
From childhood I knew I was different. I would "see" and sense things around me that others didn't. Visions would play like movies in my head about people's lives and experiences. I could sense their energy, read it and feel it like it was my own. I didn't have an outlet to express what was going on inside of me so I developed a set of coping mechanisms to deal with the energies I was absorbing. Later on in life I learned that these "coping mechanisms" had a more sophisticated name called neuroses.
After a nervous breakdown, a lifelong struggle with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, anxiety, depression and weight gain I hit rock bottom. I had lost myself...
It was that realization that woke me up from my stupor and allowed me to finally step firmly on to my soul path. As a child I remembered how intuitive I was, how connected I was to my Spirit and how enchanted life was. I was committed to bringing that back into my life again.
In 2001 I decided that I was no longer going to play victim to life. I lost 80lbs, weaned myself off antidepressants and started working with various forms of Energy Medicine. I learned how to forgive and love unconditionally and how to embrace my shadows with love and light. But most importantly, I learned how to transcend my wounds into beautiful lessons of healing. These lessons are the gifts I can now offer you...because I truly know your pain and struggle...for I AM you...
In 2005 the name Souls In Progress™ came to me in a vision while in contemplation about where my life was headed. I had just finished several months of extensive healing and training work with a wonderful Shaman in Oregon and was now looking at the possibility of starting my own healing practice. As I sat with my eyes closed I was handed a feather from my Spirit Guide "White Bear" along with the words "Souls In Progress". Instantly the name resonated with me and the message became clear. I was gifted the feather in my vision as a rite of passage to begin my new career as a healer. Souls In Progress™ became the name I used to honor that vision.
Today Souls In Progress™ supports and honors all that are willing to step on to their Soul Path and truly embrace the beauty and freedom of their becoming.

What philosophy do you live by?
I hold that we all are truly Souls In Progress trying to find our way back "HOME". That we all, on some level have a deep yearning or "Soul Call" to step back into our Divinity as Creator. In answering this call we can finally experience and appreciate ourselves and each other as the unique and infinitely creative expressions of the ONE Consciousness.
"My name is Janet and I want to encourage you with all my heart to take the healing journey with Jason! Why you may ask? Well I am a 43 yr old professional woman who has had a life time of depression and anxiety, nervous breakdowns, and many struggles. I remember being a "sad" little girl and remained like this up until 8 months ago. Like many people I went the Western route first, trying numerous psychotropic drugs, couselling and psychiatrists. But my life changed when I met Jason Cook. I was a skeptic at first, but the desperation of ridding myself from the grips of depression and anxiety over ruled my western beliefs. I was expecting a "show" prior to working with Jason. Was I ever in for a surprise. Jason's work and presence immediately puts you in a calm, safe atmosphere. Jason and I have been working together for about eight months now. Honestly my life has changed completely! Depression and anxiety are GONE!!! YES I said gone! Jason taught me so much about myself and his work. I found love, peace and joy in my life!! This man is very special people, so if you are willing to work and be open minded, than this is the man you want to be helping and guiding you through your situation and or circumstances. "Live your life to the fullest!"

"Several months ago I had some sort of itchy skin reaction. I thought maybe I had been bitten by an insect, or had an allergic reaction to some topical medicine I was using. My homeopathic doctor did a scan of my body and found Lyme Disease. Although she said it had been in my body for years, she thought it could be responsible for my symptoms. She gave me some things to take, but I only found temporary relief as the reaction moved to different parts of my body over the course of a week.
I had known Jason for several years, and knew he was now practicing intuitive counseling and energy medicine, so I scheduled a session. We discussed how the symptoms I had been experiencing may have resulted from a negative emotional episode I had the day prior to my skin reaction. In the two days following my one-hour session with Jason my skin reaction was almost completely gone! He also led me through practices that would help me to dissipate further negative emotional energy later.
After my experience I can see how Jason has taken his natural intuitive gifts and enhanced them greatly through education and experience. I have a great appreciation for how he comes from a place of love in his dealings. He is a Spiritual man, but down to earth and lighthearted too. Anyone who feels drawn to Jason's services should not hesitate to work with him."

"First I would like to thank-you for all the positive shifting you have helped me with so far! I am becoming stronger, confident and spiritually in tuned with my higher self. You have also taught me patience. The healing of my soul wounds has had a great impact on my life. It has given me a better understanding of the path I use to follow and the new path that I am now on. Teaching me to listen to my higher self has given me a chance to be aware of the energy and circumstances around me.
I'm grateful for the pain you have removed in my back and addressing the issue surrounding that!
I am very grateful for this life changing experience. I have been asking the universe for help and I got to meet someone who has the ability to help me above and beyond my expectations.
I really appreciate what you do! You have a wonderful gift!Thank-you for sharing it!"
