About the Author

Jayalalita, aka Jaya the Trust Coach, is a seeker who does not aspire to enlightenment. She lives in a sunny spot at ground level, meeting consciousness as a real human being in a real life. The fact that she used to be a moody, depressive, overwhelmed victim accounts for the if-I-can-change-anyone-can mentality she brings to her life-coaching work. Armed with an arguably useless but adorable MFA in Creative Writing, she imbues her writings with the same staunch commitment she offers her one-on-one clients and workshop participants to support them in a kinder, gentler, results-oriented process of growth and healing.
