Jo Jerodene is a spiritual mentor, an angelic channel, an intuitive vibrational healing practitioner, writer and speaker whose life purpose is to open minds and hearts towards their full potential. Founder and director of The Academy of Spiritual Knowledge, Jo previously ran The 7th Direction in Sheffield’s historical Castle Market where her knowledge of the mind, body & spirit and her guidance, was in much higher demand than the crystals and books she sold there. She closed the shop in 2009 to set up A.S.K. and hasn’t looked back.
What’s the angle?
Jo is a no-nonsense Yorkshire Lass with an uncanny way of telling it like it is. An inherent knack for combining spirituality with science for the layman has meant that she is able to easily and successfully, bring people along for the ride, making the connection for those who believe that spirituality is ‘a weekend retreat’ and turning it into a life-practice. Her easy, no bull-shit approach is both reassuring and engaging to both the beginners and the seasoned pros that can’t help but be captivated by her storytelling.
How did she get here? What’s her story?
Being tested for cancer almost nine years ago when her immune system almost gave up the ghost as a result of stress related illness, Jo was convinced that there was so much more to life than the daily grind. It took a further five years of re-education and self-reflection before she finally made the leap of faith into the unknown.
Spiritual career and training
Jo left a secure, well paid management position at one of the country’s largest leisure providers to fulfil the job that spirit asked her to do. After qualifying as a counsellor and vibrational healing practitioner, she trained as teacher with The Diana Cooper School of Angels and Ascension.
Having spent years previously, developing her understanding of spirituality and following a path that was led by angels and celestial inspirers, not to mention her own thirst for knowledge, she then turned her attention to paying it forward by developing understanding in others and helping them to unlock their own potential. Raising her own vibration to a level where Archangels and Ascended Masters can easily connect, she has been led to teach and develop the spiritual skills of countless others and to pass on the knowledge that Source has seen fit to bestow.
Jo has worked directly with the Archangel Azrael from a very early age but only came to recognise his role and significance in her life during the course of her deliberate development over the past 17 or so years, in which time he has taught her to reframe change and every ending and embrace the lessons, blessings and new beginnings inherent in every one.
Jo has since gone on to create The Wholly Grail Principles as a guide to finding inner peace and wellbeing in those brave Knights that choose to consciously walk the path.
Where have you seen her?
Published in both Soul & Spirit Magazine and High Spirit Magazine, Jo has written about her experiences with the Archangels, her early struggle to find the path, taking the leap of faith and her commitment toward aiding others in taking back their personal power and finding/maintaining their inner peace using her Wholly Grail Principles.
Jo created 2012’s Fat Tuesday Event to promote self-esteem and hope among those suffering with weight and body image issues and was privileged to work alongside Anna-Louise Haigh: Author and creator of The Wholebeing Way; Skip Archimedes (Mark Skipper) aka ‘Skip the Naked Health Detective’: twice gymnastics champion, author and inspirational speaker; the wonderful Alexandra Watson: Happiness & Success Coach; and last but by no means least The internationally renowned Stephen Russell aka The Barefoot Doctor: Author and Taoist Master among other things…
You might have also caught Jo on MySpiritRadio.com in a joint interview with Barefoot for the delicious Robin Robinson’s show: Wellbeing for Women, early in 2012 and Speaking about The Grail’s Self-Full Living at London’s Gathering of Minds in 2014.
Jo has performed mediumship & ‘colour reading’ demonstrations and angelic channelling throughout South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire UK and runs workshops and development programs in the area.
