REV. ANA JONES – Pilgrimage/Retreat Leader, Owner of Questing Spirit, LLC
Interfaith Minister, Director of ‘The Studio ~ Center for Holistic Arts’
Ana Jones has been developing her skills in the field of Holistic Energy Medicine, Intuition, and Spirituality for over thirty years. She has taught hundreds of times on these subjects and been a spiritual advisor, teacher, angel facilitator, healing practitioner, and inspirational guide for thousands of people throughout the world. Rev. Jones is an ordained Interfaith Minister who follows the Universal Way of Love taught in all of the world religions and believes that “truth is one yet paths are many.”
Rev. Jones is well known and sought after for being a modern mystic with great clarity in her intuitive abilities as a medium, clairvoyant, clairaudient, empath, and medical intuitive. Her daily ministry work includes very powerful healing work she has practiced since the age of 14, leading her to become a Reiki Master-Teacher in 1997. She trains and certifies people in Reiki Energy Healing and is a masterful teacher of multiple forms of healing arts, known by many to be a teacher of the teachers and healer of the healers. She shares holistic insights, wisdom teachings, and healing messages through several facebook pages that she hosts, including The Magdalene Circle online and her wildly popular spiritual community facebook page called 'Archangel Michael & The Legion of Light.'
Her passion for many years has been the study of ancient mysteries and prophecy from spiritual traditions all over the world and how they unite with messages from modern mystics (such as ones that she herself has been receiving for many years). All of these messages and ancient prophecies seem to point to this time period we are living in as being a time of extraordinary change and transformation. Led by Higher Power to dedicate her life to helping the Earth and all Lightworkers reconnect with sacred place and sacred time, she is the co-developer of several Rites of Passage Programs and Pilgrimage Programs featured in her prior Questing Spirit Retreats. Included amongst the pilgrimage programs she has designed or co-designed are her 'Hawaiian Odyssey' Retreats and 'Vision Quest' Retreats of 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 as well as her 2006 'Soul Journey To Machu Picchu,' and her 'Fly With The Angels, Swim with The Dolphins Hawaiian Retreat which she has led this year in April of 2014, as well as on 3 other occasions.
Rev. Jones has extensive experience in organizing and/or leading spiritually focused events, gatherings and sacred ceremonies large and small, since her career began in the early 1990's. Her other noteworthy accomplishments include being the Executive Director/Minister for Earth Aware Hawaii in 2005, Co-Founder and President of the Higher Ground Holistic Community Center during the 1990's, and co-sponsor of the ‘Interfaith Chant for Peace’ Event in 1999 at the Washington Monument in Washington, DC.
Ana is regularly involved in doing whatever she can individually and by working in synergy with others to heal the divisions amongst people and bring about global peace and healing. It is clear to her that this healing first must start from within each person. Believing that sacred quests and pilgrimages are a vital part of this personal and planetary healing process she became the driving force behind the creation of Questing Spirit, LLC, and is currently the owner and director of this small business and its most recent project ‘The Studio ~ Center for Holistic Arts’ located in Honokaa, HI on the Hamakua Coast of The Big Island where she resides with her husband Phillip.
