  Description: Wholly Education is dedicated to empowering people to realize their full potential by nourishing their body, mind and spirit.
  Profile: My name is Jody Brown and my business is called Wholly Education. The name comes from when I discovered that the three words heal, whole, and holy all come from the same root word, the old English word hal. That means that there was a time when those three concepts were so intertwined that we only needed one word to describe them all. I have wondered how the concepts became so dis-integrated, but I am encouraged by how with today’s holistic approach we are integrating them back together. So Wholly Education is a play on those words. My mission with Wholly Education is to empower people to realize their full potential by nourishing their body, mind, and spirit and I offer a wide range of services to accomplish this. I lead meditation classes as well as Health Coaching, Reiki, and Women’s Retreats called Journey to Inner Peace. Additionally, I help people with rites of passage as a non-denominational wedding officiant specializing in non-traditional and custom wedding ceremonies. As if that weren’t enough, I also teach piano using the Suzuki Method.
  Featured Products or Services: Wedding Officiant, Certified Health Coach, Master Reiki Practitioner, Meditation Instructor, Women’s Retreats Facilitator, Suzuki Piano Instructor.
