Maybe you are wanting to commit to living your most courageous and truest life.
You start each day with the best intentions - you are going to show yourself more compassion, go to your favourite exercise class, start a business, make that challenging phone call, finish that report, write your book, start that new project or ???? etc.
Bit by bit you get drawn in to the vortex of activities that drain your energy. For example - urgencies that had nothing to do with you, social media or the overwhelming list of things to do at work and your personal life.
Then, all of a sudden the time and your well-intentioned plans are forgotten.
This cycle can go on for years, unless it is interrupted...
Has greater clarity and calm - you have seen through limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviours. Little things that used to stress you no longer bother you.
You have more energy and are feeling alive. You have found some exercise you enjoy, eat food that nourishes your body and your skin is starting to glow!
You are following your heart and feeling more and more aligned to your true path. You are experiencing greater contentment and fulfilment.
You are trusting yourself and feeling more comfortable and confident in the choices you are making each day. You are feeling good and in-joying your life!
You have remembered how to laugh and have fun (just like you did when you were young) and you are in-joying time with your family and friends.
You have people around you whom you trust and are feeling supported as you step forward in to the world and wholeheartedly shine your light.
When you join Wholehearted Academy, you'll benefit from -
Personal Growth and Learning
As you participate and engage in Wholehearted Academy on a regular basis, you will discover additional self-worth and evolve as a person. Meeting with a group of like-minded women can bring a tremendous amount of personal and professional growth.
Energy and Flow
There may be days (or weeks) in your profession or business when you do not have very much energy. However, when you are aligned with your own heart and soul and other women something happens and life starts to flow with ease and grace.
Practice, Practice, Practice...
The key to life is paying attention and being present. Yes, this can be challenging. On the surface, it can appear easier to bolt and run away (don't worry I have done that many, many times), however in the long run it doesn't work. This is why we are going to continually practice coming back to focus on yourself and your needs each week.
No longer will you feel like you are trying to do it all by yourself! In Wholehearted Academy you will be reminded each week to take time to focus on what matters to you. You will find yourself more inspired to take action when you have a support system cheering you on.
Encouragement and Support
You will have encouragement from other Wholehearted Academy members. When was the last time someone gave you genuine support and celebrated your successes? In Wholehearted Academy, we want to celebrate with you and share your successes, no matter how big or small they may seem!
What is Included in the Wholehearted Academy membership?
Each month you are a member of Wholehearted Academy, you have the opportunity to take time out to align with what matters to you and develop self-knowledge, learn to like and trust your self. The weekly Wholehearted Academy webinar is the focus of the community. Each week, you will be invited to the webinar with Jane as your guide. We will also record the activities and information which are based on the monthly topics and include many of the things I have learnt during the past 25 years of studying how to be alive and awake, including -
- Inquiry questions and journalling to help you stay focused and take action on what matters most,
- Mindfulness meditations that allow you to become aware of the monkey mind,
- Activities and exercises to deepen awareness and let-go of any resistance to your hearts desire,
- Simple habit ideas to help support you to deepen your own self-knowledge and centred within your own being, and
- Stories and poetry to feed your own inner guide and wisdom.
Habits and Topics We Will be Exploring and Developing...
Depending on the research you read, some people say it takes 18-254 days to change or develop a habit and changing the neural pathways in your brain. To be honest, I am not sure which research to believe some days, however what I do know is that it takes awareness, action and commitment to create sustainable change and develop effective habits and only we can make those changes (no-one can do it for us).
Therefore, each month we will be exploring and focusing on a new topic. The monthly topic goes from the 1st of the month until the last day and the webinars will be each Tuesday night at 8pm.
WHOLEHEARTED ACADEMY STARTS MAY 1, 2018.
First Webinar Wednesday May 2 @ 8pm QLD Time.
The topics for each month are listed below -
Starting to untangle from perfection and lack of clarity and cultivating your own dreams based on your strengths and aspirations.
Starting to untangle from money chaos and cultivating money clarity.
Starting to untangle from self-sabotage and draining habits and discover your motivation and habits for wellbeing.
Starting to untangle from disrespect and lack of connection and cultivating boundaries and relationships.
Starting to untangle from clutter and cultivating organisation and simplicity.
Starting to untangle and become aware of the inner critic and draining emotions (i.e. blame, shame) and cultivating confidence, responsibility and compassion.

Who is Wholehearted Academy for?
Wholehearted Academy is for the CEO, the teacher, the assistant teacher, the nurse, the business owner, the real estate agent, the sporting coach, the accountant, the human resources manager, business services manager, the receptionist, the mum, the grandmother, the writer, the printer and anyone else who has a successful career and very real time constraints.
It is for the woman who wants to be more, accomplish more, do more, but most of all be present more. It is also for the woman who wants to do less. The woman who wants to undo what they have done and stop pushing to do and allow more being to unfold.
Wholehearted Academy is for the woman who is ready to start a new project and bring something new in to the world. That project could be a book, a new business, a course or even transitioning in to a new job.
It is for the woman who is ready to stop, rest and begin to listen to their own inner wisdom and truth.
Wholehearted Academy is for the woman who is ready to break-up with draining habits (i.e. "shoulds", "comparisons", "blame") and create greater freedom and sustainable wellbeing.
It is for all of us who are ready to practice being more alive and awake in this world, whilst increasing compassion, connection and courage.
Basically, Wholehearted Academy is about you coming home to yourself, showing up for you for at least one hour per week.
- would like to step forward and take the time to prioritise your own needs and desires,
- want to continue to take action and succeed in a way that is connected to your heart and soul,
- align with your deepest potential and live in a more connected and sustainable way,
- are ready to connect with a group of like-minded women to support you in being the expert of your own adventure (yes we want to celebrate YOU and are not intimidated by your gifts and talents),
- build a grounded sense of self-confidence and self-worth and change self-sabotaging patterns,
- are waking up or have woken up to the truth of yourself as so much more than you thought,
- would like access to consistent education and support to stay focused,
- want to belong to a community that is practical and grounded in research and education, and
- are ready to keep growing and learning in a safe and supportive environment!
What Wholehearted Academy is NOT...
Wholehearted Academy is NOT -
- another blueprint, program or or 7-step course (human beings are too complex and simple for them - yes that is a paradox 🙂 ),
- about being perfect - it is about embracing your humanness and who you truly are wholeheartedly,
- following a program to get certain results. I cannot guarantee what you will receive (it depends on where you are and what you want to focus on for the week), and
- an advice giving space (as you are not broken and do not need fixing). It is about you returning to be the expert in your own life and learning to trust yourself fully.
Frequently Asked Questions

Don't worry, I know technology can be challenging and frustrating, so I have made it simple and easy to participate.
Do you currently have -
- an e-mail account?
- can access Facebook?
- access to a reasonable internet connection?
- know how to watch Youtube or access videos online?
Yes - Great! You will be able to participate in Wholehearted Academy!
Of course you can! That is precisely why this is online - so we can cater for individual needs and requirements.
The short answer is yes.
The long answer - if you would like for this to happen (i.e. linked Australian Professional Standards for Teachers), you will need to send me a request with your name, the number of weeks you have been a member for as well as the continuing professional development structure you are linking too. Once I receive this information, I can then go over it and link to the standards and create a certificate.
That is 100% up to you! Some community members will commit to exactly one hour per week as that is the sweet spot for them. Then, there are other members who will allocate a little more or a little less - it is totally up to you. Also - it could change for you each week 🙂
You get access to the webinars and video trainings I host. The webinars and video trainings include self inquiry, journalling and exercises. You will also have access to the Wholehearted Academy secret Facebook, whilst you are a member. In this group, I will regularly participate in discussions and you may ask questions whilst you are in there.
The Wholehearted Academy price is in Australian dollars.
We use Stripe and PayPal for our payments, so you will be able to pay in your local currency (and Stripe and PayPal converts it for you). So it doesn't matter where you live in the world, you can join us!
On the 1st day of each month we start a new topic. In the first webinar, you can identify where you are in relation to the topic and what is holding you back. Each day you will receive reminders and inspiration in the Facebook group.
There will be 4 Live Webinars (approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours) with Jane about the module focus each month. The first and third webinars are about the topic focus for the month. The 2nd and 4th webinars are available for you to ask questions and interact with Jane.
The schedule is as follows –
- the 1st Wednesday of the month at 8pm (QLD Time) - monthly topic,
- the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 8pm (QLD Time) - FAQ's,
- the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 8pm (QLD Time) - monthly topic, and
- the 4th Wednesday of the month at 8pm (QLD Time) - FAQ's.
Jane will send you the link to register for these webinar sessions closer to the time.
No, it is not.
Wholehearted Academy is an about developing self-awareness and self-trust, it is not for treatment for any physical or mental health condition. All participants in the community agree to take responsibility for their own experience and the actions they take.
It is important to understand that Wholehearted Academy is NOT coaching, mindfulness or psychotherapy training. However, it could be a useful add-on to these as well as education/teacher and human resources training.
Wholehearted Academy is all about education - providing tools, strategies and resources to support you to make any changes you choose to and become the expert in your own life and live wholeheartedly.
If you are in psychotherapy whilst you are involved with Wholehearted Academy, please tell your therapist.
Why I created the Wholehearted Academy...
Hi - I am Jane Taylor - let me share a little bit about the Wholehearted Academy.
At the end of 2014, I made a promise to myself - to be my own best friend by the end of 2015. I created boundaries, broke up with draining habits, allowed myself to stay in bed until I wanted to get up (some days), donated money to charities I wanted to, let go of situations and experiences that were exhausting, allowed myself to start receiving more, found my voice and started speaking up more as well as a number of other aspects.
Today, I feel more like the real Jane than I have in years. Yes, the adventure has been (and is) challenging, however I can see clearly that I was the one who was self-sabotaging my own world through my own fears, distorted thoughts and insecurities from the past. I also want the adventure to keep going and continue to practice living wholeheartedly. However, I also want to continue this adventure in a community of like-minded women, so I can share what I have learnt/unlearnt (i.e. the tools etc.). Subsequently, Wholehearted Academy was created.
Wholehearted Academy is a safe and supportive online learning community for women who would like consistent access and support to ongoing personal and professional development, so they can find the courage to step forward, embrace your worthiness, release what is no longer serving them and be genuinely happy with the woman/leader they are (i.e. be free to be themselves and be their own best friend).
Make time for your life and creative desires...
Come and join me and give yourself the gift and healing of your own attention and presence!
You'll be grateful you did!
With the connection created in a safe and supportive environment and a small investment of time and money, you will start to create a life that is more aligned with who you are and a deeper sense of belonging and connection. You will start to develop greater self-awareness, have more compassion for your self, increase your self-confidence and trust yourself. This is about progress, NOT perfection. So if you already have these aspects covered you will dive deeper with the tools, accountability and weekly check-in and taking action time.
