Jes Baker is a white, fat, queer, femme creative who joyfully works at the crossroads of somatics, spirituality, and psychology. She often does this work as a coach, writer, speaker, facilitator, folk magic practitioner, and lifelong student who loves to learn and then share transformational knowledge with others when helpful.
The knowledge that she’s learned over the years comes from visionary teachers + mentors alike (she is currently resonating with and learning from Sonya Renee Taylor, Adrienne Maree Brown, Marika Heinrichs, Leah Garza, Jules Pashall, Prentis Hemphill, amongst others), and the awareness of how much she doesn’t know excites her just as much as what she’s learning.
Jes is the great-grandchild of Irish, Scottish, and Norweigan settlers to the part of Turtle Island colonially known as the United States. Her work includes exploring and unlearning colonial ideals, healing the wounds created by these systems, and offering ways to reconnect with ourselves, others, and the larger ecosystem we live in so we can rediscover our inherent belonging and interconnectedness.
