We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessie May Wolfe and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jessie May, what do you attribute your success to?

The most essential factor hands down is our incredible community! From our core team to our HeartRise certified leaders and our growing global fam ~ we are so inspired to see and feel the impact of our movement igniting hearts far and wide.  As a grassroots movement, it is our community who have been the ones helping this method and mission spread as they have had life-changing experiences with HeartRise and their impact radiates on to others! As we say ‘One heart ignited, ignites all those it touches’!
It is the heartbeat of the people who make the movement ~ first by practicing the HeartRise Method for themselves to anchor, alchemize challenges and powered up on purpose~ then being activated ~ they generate and attract more heart-centered people to reach and welcome… Our Radiance is Contagious… and Connection is Our Greatest Currency both speak to the ‘HeartRise Effect’!!

What should our readers know about your business?

We are in the business of connection. It has always been my nature to connect with others, and my expansive journey across continents and industries have taught me how to actually understand and teach what it was I was doing… to harness this ‘heart power’ AKA ‘Currency of Connection’ that we teach and empower in others.
HeartRise is a practice that was born out of my life experience and enhanced by my training in various modalities.
I was curious to learn where my driving passion for people and creative vision was coming from and how to access this power on the regular.
The beauty is that in uncovering how the connections & creativity were happening, both within myself and with others ~  I unleashed a method to do so with intention and to help others have the same experience.
I came to understand that there was deeper wisdom in the heart of each one of us. That with a commitment to feeling our pain instead of blocking it, and learning how to move through challenges ~ this palpable energetic currency was available to create and connect with.

What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?

The more you learn to trust your heart, the truer and happier you will be. Your heart is your compass. Your heart is your engine.
There is a natural guiding rhythm rooted in the heart of each one of us. When you learn how to lean in, feel through and free what you’re holding; you can access this vibrational source and let it lead.
You can express your unique signature song and cultivate the kind of connections and creative collaborations that the world needs now!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?

We would start by going to the beach! Getting our feet in the sand and dropping in for a HeartRise Meditation to anchor and ignite!
Then… I would definitely want to take them around Venice on bikes… the boardwalk, abbot kinney with lunch @Rose Cafe, or Butcher’s Daughter!
We would meander up the PCH to Sunset- where we could go for an early afternoon hike. on Los Liones trail all the way up to where the views are wild and beautiful of the whole coast!
Then continuing up the coast to Malibu where I would take them out to the pier for a fresh juice @Malibu Farms.
With a possible horseback ride or wander the shops and village vibes at Cross Creek – to then finish up with a yummy dinner @Cafe Habana, @Surfrider or @SohoMalibu
If feeling energized, we would go for some live jazz @Harvelle’s!
That’s one day… West Side – my fave!
Other fave spots in and around LA:
The Lobby + Rooftop @Proper Hotel
La Esquina ~ a fun salsa club tucked in behind a library entrance
Gracias Madre ~ fave mexican resto in the city
P.A.C.E ~ Peace in the Canyon ~ fave cozy romantic resto spot in Laurel Canyon
Lake Shrine ~ heavenly oasis for meditation and quiet stroll or picnic on a sunny day ~ the gardens and grounds are stunning
One Hotel Lobby or Soho House in WeHo ~ both for coworking or a long lazy lunch with friends

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Love this! I would be honored to shine this shoutout on Marianne Williamson! She has been a pivotal figure on my path. From her book ‘Return to Love’ ~ which changed my life- to my first-weekend workshop in person with her on ‘A Course in Miracles’ 11 years ago where she singled me out to say I must attend her Monday night lectures on the Course in Miracles and study with her… to which I happily obliged ~  

She was the first guest on my OG podcast ‘Sunny Side Up’ (back in 2011) Flashing forward many years later to her full support and endorsement of HeartRise… it’s been a blessing to feel her guiding love from near & far… as she is a beacon, friend, and mentor to me and SO many. I’m deeply grateful for her guidance and love on this HeartRise journey! She’s a gift to the world!
