…intrigued with life’s mystery
During the 1970s, she followed the phases of the moon and backpacked through Central America with a deck of tarot cards as her guide. She learned how to interpret astrological charts from Joan Negus as Negus was developing the Education and Certification Program for the National Council for Geocosmic Research. Jacqueline practiced the divinatory arts in Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco and further developed her psychic abilities in a yearlong certification with the Heartsong Center for Expanded Perception.
As co-founder of Temple of Living Prayer, a California non-profit spiritual organization in 1985, she served as minister and pastor in Sacramento for over ten years, creating and leading healing rituals, guided meditations, grief passage ceremonies, wedding ceremonies and other types of transformative services with Tibetan bowls, bells, gongs, and drums. Intensive trainings at the Tamalpa Institute were key in awakening somatic wisdom and an eagerness to incorporate movement into her work and life practice.
In 1995-98, Lasahn was Astrologer-in-Residence at Wilbur Hot Springs and lived off-grid at the edge of the wilderness. She listened to the spirit song of the earth with the rhythm of the seasons and was inspired by bats, bobcats and shooting stars. Jacqueline returned for seven years to lead New Moon, Full Moon, Solstice and Equinox rituals; for twelve years, she offered Mindfulness Meditation with Tibetan bowls.
Lasahn launched the AstroFlash! newsletter in 1999, with the intention of offering an empowering, inspiring, multi-layered perspective beyond the “sun-sign astrology” popular in mainstream media.
In 2001, she participated with the late Elisabeth Targ, MD in a study funded by the National Institute of Health through the California Pacific Medical Center, examining the power of prayer in healing advanced AIDS patients and used distance healing ritual with Tibetan bowls, bells and chanting.
Over the decades, Lasahn has given countless astrological and tarot consultations and has conducted and co-created countless ceremonies, rituals and life passages for individuals and diverse communities, large and small. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and loves to dance.
