Why conquer your fear when you can laugh at it?
Jillian is a professional stand up comedienne, spiritual teacher, and the founder of Fear Monster Obedience School, the first organization to combine comedy and spirituality to help people put their fear on a leash (sometimes with a choke collar).
Six years ago, Jillian was stuck in a crappy job and a less-than-fantastic relationship. She made the decision to follow her heart, which has been terrifying the entire time, but has led to such adventures as meditating in Bali, walking all the way across Spain, and meeting a gorgeous Italian man. She likes to say she's living her own version of "Eat, Pray, Love" except all in the wrong order, and the countries aren't quite the same, and she didn't get to sleep with James Franco first.
On this crazy journey, she studied all of the major world religions and a few of the "funny" ones, and discovered that the secret to conquering your fear is actually to not try to conquer it. Her unique approach to managing fear is changing the way people live their lives. She believes that fear is not something to be conquered, but a part of yourself that can be healed if you learn how to have a different relationship with it. She believes that anyone's life can be amazing if they simply listen to their fear less than they listen to their heart, and has dedicated her life to teaching others how to do just that.
