Project Description

​​​​​​Hi there! 

My name is Jennifer Sterling. I am a registered dance/movement psychotherapist and holistic nutritionist based in New York City. 

I've worked in wellness for 12+ years and my focus has always been nourishment: 

  • As an allergen-free pastry chef and bakery owner, I nourished my community with safe food options.
  • As a nutritionist, I support my community in nourishing themselves by nurturing healthy and flexible relationships with food and eating. 
  • As a dance/movement psychotherapist, I create space for deep emotional nourishment. 

While each of these options is available to my clients and patients, I understand that dance/movement psychotherapy isn't available or accessible to everyone. With that in mind, my moving meditation album will allow more folx to explore intuitive movement and creative expression in an accessible manner. It will also afford everyone with a tool for emotion regulation outside of therapy or a doctor's office — with so many people without quality healthcare in the US, access to therapeutic resources is essential. 

My previous album, Linger, was self-funded. However, I am seeking funding for NOURISH because I simply cannot afford to do it alone. 

NOURISH will include:

  • 10 guided moving meditation tracks
  • 10 instrumental tracks
  • Music by award winning, multi-instrumentalist, and Alvin Ailey musician, William Catanzaro

Funds raised will be used to pay William for his musical genius and cover the cost of studio rental for recording. 

This is what was possible when recording at home. I'm hoping the next album can be a step above!

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

How exactly will the funds be used?

I'm glad you asked! Here is the breakdown: 

How will the digital albums be delivered and when? 

Great question! Once the album is ready, you'll receive an email with a promo code (specific to you) that will allow you to download the album. We anticipate the album being completed mid-September. You'll get first access, then the album will be released to the public in October 2020. 

When will the live moving meditation session be held? 

The date is TBD, but there will be two options available — one in the morning and another in the evening. Once we have dates, we'll notify you via email.
