About the author:
A neatnik with a ready sense of humor, Jill Loree's first job as a root-beer-stand carhop in Northern Wisconsin was an early sign that things could only get better.
She would go on to throw pizzas and bartend while in college, before discovering that the sweet spot of her 30-year sales-and-marketing career would be in business-to-business advertising. A true Gemini with a degree in Chemistry and a flair for writing, she enjoys the challenge of thinking crea-tively about scientific topics. Her brain fires on both the left and right sides.
That said, her real passion in life has been her spiritual path. Raised in the Lutheran faith, she became a more deeply spiritual person in the rooms of AA, a spiritual recovery program, starting in 1989. In 1997, she was in-troduced to the wisdom of the Pathwork, which she describes as "having walked through the doorway of a fourth step and found the whole library."
She completed four years of Pathwork Helpership training in 2007 fol-lowed by four years of apprenticing and discernment before stepping into her full Helpership in 2011. She has been a teacher in the Transformation Program offered at a retreat center in Madison, Virginia, operated by Mid-Atlantic Pathwork, where she also led marketing activities for over two years and served on the Board of Trustees.
In 2012, Jill completed four years of Kabbalah training in a course called the Soul's Journey, achieving certification for hands-on healing using the energies embodied in the tree of life.
Not bad for a former pom-pom squad captain who once played Dolly in Hello Dolly! She is now the proud mom to two adult children, Charlie and Jackson, who were born and raised in Atlanta. Having grown weary of borrowing other people's last names, Jill now happily uses her middle name as her last-it's pronounced la-REE. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, writing, running, yoga and hiking, especially in the mountains.
As she turns the corner onto the back nine in life, she has consciously decoupled from the corporate world and is now dedicating her life to writ-ing and spiritual teaching.

Word for Word
An Intimate Exchange between a Couple of Kindred Souls
Jill Loree, Tim Wagner
What does it really look like, not just to talk the talk, but also to walk the walk of a spiritual path? In a word, it can get complicated.
Now, in this word-for-word* collection of straight-forward messages written between a couple of died-in-the-wool spiritual seekers, we get a glimpse into some of the wily ways our work surfaces in our relationships, and how we can navigate through the hiccups.
Surprisingly insightful and at times pretty funny, here is a rare inside perspective on the messy work of healing, growing and relating.
* Word for Word is, for the most part, a verbatim exchange between two people who both like to write, and who, as luck would have it, found a willing pen pal in each other. Neither had any idea at the time that their deep sharing through email and texts could amount to a narrative, so neither made any effort to sensor what was shared.
What's included here, then, is a word-for-word account of their communications, with just a few things omitted or slightly modified to protect the innocent. Typos and punctuation have been cleaned up to aid readability, but believe it or not, nothing has been added nor has anything been tweaked so that the two don't look too stupid or otherwise embarrass themselves. You'll see.
