Stephanie Urbina Jones and Jeremy Pajer are the founders of Freedom Folk and Soul, a congregation of Venus Rising Association for Transformation. They are committed to guiding folks on their journey of self discovery, healing and transformation. Empowering those who seek to live a life of passion, purpose and personal freedom
Stephanie and Jeremy have spent over 40 years in combined pursuit of their personal freedom . Each of them studied, prayed, walked, talked , worked and turned over stones in the road and in their hearts to heal and create a life of humility, passion and purpose. Having personally experienced the spiral path and journey of continuous transformation they were called to give back what they had been given and share their experience, strength and hope with other souls on the path of wellness and higher consciousness. They feel called to be compassionate stewards, witnesses and teachers supporting others with a desire to heal and find their own passion, purpose and transformation on their chosen life path. In all their years of healing, these modalities and tools have become some of the most powerful for healing and spiritual growth. Both Jeremy and Stephanie are honored and called to share these powerful healing ways and journeys of transformation with the world.
