Jan Frazier is a spiritual teacher and writer. In 2003 she experienced a radical transformation of consciousness. She wishes to communicate the truth that within every person is a pool of calm well-being that waits patiently to be stirred to life. She lives in Vermont.
Following a Catholic childhood in Miami in the 1960s, Jan Frazier studied English in college and graduate school. In her late twenties, longing for hills and snow, she moved to New England where she was active in the peace movement.
Until the summer of her fiftieth year, Jan Frazier lived a life typical for a well-educated, middle-class American woman. A divorced mother of two teenagers, she made a modest living as a writer and teacher of writing. Her poetry and nonfiction appeared in the Christian Science Monitor, Yankee, Cimarron Review, and the Minnesota Review, and an anthology of her poems was published in 2003 by Pudding House. But the inner peace she sought always eluded her.
Then in August 2003 she experienced a radical transformation of consciousness. Fear fell away and she was immersed in a state of causeless joy that has never left her. While she has continued her life as writer, teacher, and mother, she has discovered it is possible to live a richly human life free of suffering.
