Hi, I'm Nona Jordan
I am so glad you are here.
To get a sense of who I am, you must know that I am deeply inspired by beauty of all kinds, from the beauty and utter naturalness of non-human nature to the beautiful devotion of humans who go beyond their limits to catch their dreams.
I've been told I'm intense and that my laugh is too loud and that I have almost no capacity to make small talk. I'm so glad these things are true so when we meet and you tell me what's real for you -- you won't find a more welcoming place for all of you to show up and be celebrated in all of your fine humanity.
As a Capricorn, my work is at the heart of my values - a very close second to my family, so let me tell you more.
My vision is to leave a legacy of women who dare to create the life, and the work, that lights them from within and lights up the world. This path requires the courage to change — to grow in the face of challenge.
I want you - and as many women as I can reach in a lifetime - to trust the wealth of resources that are at the very heart of who you are. I want you to stop doubting yourself and looking outside of yourself for affirmation or fixing. I want you to move through life with a felt sense that you are enough with the capacity to create the fulfilling life and work that you choose.
I want you to move through the world deliberately, on purpose, with a sense of choicefulness.
Here are a few things I believe
I believe we must be willing to face our challenges with courage to experience true joy. Often (maybe even most of the time), the journey to sustainable success begins with getting it wrong — welcoming this aspect of being human makes you strong, brave and more unshakable in your sense of self-efficacy.
I believe that caring for your wellbeing is non-negotiable if you want to experience sustainable success. Everything you want to create happens in your body: THE primary container of your knowledge, of your creative force, of your experience, and your very soul. Making space for the care and feeding of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing is necessary to creating the work, and life, you desire. True story.
I believe you can trust life and yourself. I know it may not feel like it when so many structures and ideals are crumbling, but on the other side of chaos and death is rebirth and we will need your wisdom, strength and power to usher in a new era. The future holds so much promise when we say yes to aligning with our integrity.
I believe in the power of community. All boats rise together and no woman is an island. Our most profound growth happens in relationship to others (because most of our wounding happens there as well, yes?) Individual coaching or saying yes to group work is a powerful way to create connection and invite support that amplifies clarity, empowerment, and inspired action.
I believe in the power of doing the work. To make manifest is to make something real. To create is to take aligned, committed action. Doing the work that is yours to do, to be the woman you wish to be, is the most sacred work you can invest in.
And I know this because getting here was a decades-long journey which means I know where you are and how you're feeling.
The Journey to Now
At eleven, I was already a self-help junkie. I'd secretly started reading my Mom’s metaphysical books. Then, in college, when I was supposed to be studying for my accounting exams, you could still find me practicing yoga, devouring spiritual and personal-development books. Feed the addiction, people.
And I was feeding it. I was searching. I was hungry. I was following a path that wasn’t my passion (accounting) - and I was doing it all for the money. Later, even when making six figures in that profession (which was supposed to fix what felt broken), I was following the fine family tradition of trying to drown out the overwhelming impact of long-term trauma and toxic stress with wine, beer, cigarettes and generally bad behavior, including ignoring my money and being in over my head with my debt. Driven and depressed by my endless search for more money, more time, more things... I was poorer than I'd ever been.
Self-help + self-loathing. These two contradictory urges collided one night more than sixteen years ago when I was reading Pema Chodron while trying to get drunk. (!!)
That night, I had nothing short of a spiritual awakening. Everything changed in an instant.
Well, okay, in an instant plus each moment since.
I changed my life completely, ridding myself of drinking and smoking, bad boyfriends and bad habits. In the last sixteen years I've changed all my habits so completely that you'd think I'm a different person.
I’m more myself than I have been since I was six years old. I wouldn’t say I’m childlike, but everyday I recover more of my true nature, the innate wealth, that I thought I had lost so many years ago by doing the vital inner work of facing my shadows, demons and traumas to find myself. In finding myself, my energy and my aliveness, I have found a sense of incredible, unshakable abundance and joy.
On the path, I have trained with the best beginning with a 200 hour YTT through Kripalu in 2003 and since then, with some amazing mentors and teachers to amplify my own capacity for leadership, healing, and coaching. I studied with Martha Beck to become a kick-ass Master Coach and I am currently pursuing a master's degree in Psychology at Harvard Extension to deepen my knowledge of coaching psychology and the latest evidence-based approaches to helping you change in the ways that matter to you. I've also trained as a master practitioner and facilitator of somatic practices such as meditation, breath work, earth medicine, and energy work, all of which honed my intuitive/visioning capacity. Combine all this with my business degree, a CPA license (currently inactive) and years working in publicly-traded tech companies in Seattle and it almost feels like I was born this way.
So, yes, I did a few things right in the last decade getting my shit together and doing my own deep inner work, but I really must have done something right in a past life, because I'm married to the most amazing man on the planet and we have a (not so) little girl who is amazing squared.
Living a nomadic life with my husband's work as a military officer and diplomat, we currently live in Lusaka, Zambia where I am deeply inspired by the beauty of Africa: the people, the animals and the incredible land.
My life is an expression of soul-level success that feels like success in the doing. Each day filled with incredible experiences, people and opportunities that I couldn't have dreamed of 18 years ago - fullness, aliveness and access to a depth of wealth I never imagined when I was obsessed with money and society’s ideas of success.
And that's what I want for you.

What Women Say About Working with Me
“Nona, I’ve always had all the answers, what I lacked was the courage to listen and act. Now I’m sure that living life in alignment with my true self isn’t about living a life free of mistakes. It’s about living life consciously aware of the choices I make. And when those choices feel in alignment with my true self I experience happiness and continue along the path. Thank you, Nona, for showing me the way back to my true self.”
“Nona Jordan came into my life during a time that was seriously wonky. I left feeling healed, calm, and clear. Nona’s approach feels like whole soul renewal, energy realignment, and stress-free business building, all in one. Also! I’d be remiss not to mention that something truly magical happened through my work with Nona. Before we even talked, the investment I made to work with her came back to me exactly 100 fold. I’m talking real-money (lots), showed up, unexpectedly, 17 hours after I sent my initial investment her way. As someone who works with magic for a living, I can hands-down say, Nona’s got the midas touch. She’s fun, encouraging, and smarter than smart. She has my wholehearted recommendation, gratitude and love.”
“Nona’s work is profoundly potent and clarifying. Her deep energy work and skilled coaching helped me untangle my resistance to simply accepting the flow of abundance that was rushing toward me. She helped me rewire my beliefs about money, creativity and success in a way that fosters true, soul-stirring authenticity in my personal and professional life. And for the very first time I feel as though I truly embody my purpose and my unlimited potential. Her work is life-changing. Life. Changing.”
