WE ARE TRYING TO RAISE $44,444 TO LAUNCH OUR FLAGSHIP HEALING SPACE!
WITH YOUR HELP WE KNOW WE CAN GET THERE!
STILLNESS OVER STRESS. WHY IS THIS SPACE IMPORTANT?
According to the American Psychological Association, chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide. And more than 75 percent of all physician office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints.
58% of Americans say work is a significant source of stress (APA, 2017)

As it relates to technology...(APA, 2017)

Workers experiencing a recent organizational change are 4x more likely to report experiencing physical health symptoms at work (APA, 2017)

Companies in the Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 index that prioritize employee engagement and well-being outperform the rest of the FTSE 100 by 10% (Workwell FTSE 100, 2014)
WHAT ARE WE TRYING TO CREATE?
We are trying to create a sacred space, in which all people, especially women and people of color, feel safe nurtured and encouraged to work through the physical, mental and emotional challenges of their daily lives in order to experience mind, body, spirit health and energetic balance.
Our space will provide movement meditation classes, sound healing, women's circles, ceremonial gatherings and educational workshops in our main room. And various forms of energetic healing, guidance, therapy and alternative medicine in our three back private rooms. There will also be a retail aspect of the space which will house crystals, books, meditation tools, and sound healing instruments in the front entrance.
WHO ARE WE?

Janelle, Antoinette and Trisha are the partners behind Jupiter Soundscape LLC. Each of these women bring to the table their own powerful story behind their own self healing and also their unique skill set which makes the Jupiter Soundscape concept so unique.
Janelle is fashion industry veteran of 20 years, who after experiencing many earth shattering pregnancy losses and an infertility diagnosis received the miracle (a child) which set her out on her path to be a lightworker through the modality of sound healing.
Antoinette, a yoga teacher and former yoga studio owner, is a evidential medium, and shamanic reiki healer doing much pro bono work with cancer patients.
Patricia, a techie by day and restauranteur by night, is the co founder and owner of many thriving businesses in the LA area and a certified sound healer and movement meditation leader.
All three of us are committed to the practice of healing. There is too much going on in this world in terms of numbing, suppressing, violence, chaos and sickness. If we can have this space to allow people to heal and work through all the things in their lives which they feel they can no longer accept, we know we can create a great ripple effect that will energetically shift our local and global community. This work needs to be accessible to all people. We are committed to doing this work for ourselves, for our families and for everyone that has ever needed a place to go to reconnect with themselves and their inner power once again.
HOW DID WE GET THIS IDEA?
We simply looked around at our community and saw the lack of this type of space and service in areas in our proximity. We felt the disparity in that to obtain these type of services, education or to be in this type of space people in this community were required to travel almost 30 miles away. Our goal is to make these types of practices accessible in our community and give back to the place we grew up in.
Today we need your help in acheiving our goal of $44,444. By contributing to our cause you will be helping us to create an great shift in mind, body and soul for an entire community in the West Covina, Walnut, SGV and IE areas.

REWARDS FOR DONATING
There is no space like this in this area, so with your generous contribution you are bringing the accessibility for education and service of the culmination of many ancient technologies for the purpose of healing.
We are working on setting up a program that allows us to do pro bono work with cancer patients. Many of our parents, loved ones and friends have passed from this disease and you will be helping us to provide an outlet and an alternative to those who may have begun to feel incurable and hopeless.
Risks & Challenges
Many people are still unaware of the benefits of our healing modalities. But we are committed to providing education surrounding these healing technologies that have been used in ancient cultures for thousands of years. We also have a myriad of practitioners and teachers under our umbrella that have already establlished clientele waiting for a permanent space to call home. These practitioners and teachers have garnered strong word of mouth referrals as a result of their powerful and effective methods of allowing their clients to realize their inherent wholeness.
Another posed risk is other competitors in the field of yoga, meditation and healing arts facilities. However our strategic location as well as unique approach using wholistic vibration medicine; sound, crystals movement and alternative healing therapies, differentiate our space from other yoga studios, healing arts spaces as well as metaphysical shops.
Other Ways You Can Help
We understand that you may not be able to make a financial contribution at this time and that’s ok. It would mean the world to us if you were able to spread the word and get this message out there! We’ve made our campaign and content easy to share! Click on the google drive link below and you will find any and all assets to use to help us #MAKESHIFTHAPPEN.
Check out this campaign that I am helping to support. My friends Janelle, Antoinette and Trisha (Jupiter Soundscape LLC) are crowdfunding the start-up cost (buildout, permits, supplies and inventory) of their wellness space set to be in West Covina, CA. This is important because there is nothing like this as of yet in that area or in the surrounding communities. The creation of this space for movement, meditation, sound and energy healing will be so beneficial for those seeking this type of help but who do not live anywhere near where these types of services are available. Any little bit helps and they are offering some amazing rewards for donations ranging from as little as $22 - $4444 !! Please check out the Indiegogo campaign here. And thank you in advance for helping #MAKESHIFTHAPPEN.
