Any of this sound familiar?

Sex is your top priority.

Your porn viewing feels out of control.

You've been unfaithful to your partner or hurt others you love.

You think everyone would hate you if they really knew you.

You can't understand why you're acting this way. It just doesn't make sense!

You're spending excessive money and time on sexual pursuits.

You spend all of your time thinking about sex or pornography.

You believe there is something inherently wrong with you.

Your life doesn't feel like your own anymore.

You want to stop but can't no matter how hard you try.

What if you could be free from all of it?

 

Listen, I get it.

For most of my life I could answer "yes" to every single one of these questions. A better life seemed impossible for me. I was too far gone. I'd done too many terrible things, hurt too many people.

There was something in me that still believed 

I wasn't good enough.

I was unlovable.

I should just settle for what life had given me.

I was frustrated with always feeling lost and out of control.


I felt anxiety on a daily basis, overwhelmed by the chatter in my mind.

All of that is in the past for me and can be for you too.

Have you arrived at a place where you feel you can no longer continue living as you have been?

Have you've been trying to do so much on your own, 
but it's not working?

Are you ready for a change? A real change?

 


If you’re fed up with putting in so much
work and not getting to where you want
to be in life or recovery,
this program could be your game changer!


 

Why Join?

"Having Jace as a guide has been absolutely amazing and life changing. It has been so empowering and it has helped me to understand myself deeper than ever before and to look at the roots when before I was just treating my symptoms. I'm so glad I pursued the opportunity to work with Jace because it let me know I could be completely open and honest and be met with love; and that has been such a beautiful and life enriching experience. I now have peace in my life and so much faith for the future ahead."

Katie Thompson

Why Join The illumitorium Recovery Tribe?

I'll be honest, this group is not for everybody. Though we all have the capacity to free ourselves from addiction, not everyone is willing to do what it takes to get there. Luckily, when you're part of a tribe, you don't have to do it alone!

Community is an invaluable element in the recovery process. Working with a tribe hacks into our biological makeup, invites us into a broader perspective and gives us a chance to practice openness without shame. Working with a dedicated group consistently is a wildly powerful experience!

Here we create lasting results by mastering the self beneath addiction not the symptoms of it.

If you join and don't dig it, you can cancel anytime. Easy peasy!

"Before I started working with Jace I was afraid that I would be judged or I would have someone who couldn't truly empathize with my history and my own set of circumstances (which I was convinced were the worst and most shameful of any living addict). Not only was I wrong about the judgment, but Jace turned out to be one of the most empathetic people I have ever met. I've never been able to come up with something that seemed to surprise or phase her. With Jace, I am surprised time and again by her ability to provide nonjudgemental feedback that is valid and helpful in a very practical way."

Heath Richards

"What Jace offers is more than mental and deeper than just coaching. The help I received from her was exactly what my personal situation needed. It’s a huge blessing to work with such a real and open soul!"

What Will We Cover?

In The illumitorium we take a BioPsychoSocialSpiritual approach. When you work with me, we explore more than just addiction and recovery. A lot more! So many programs just focus on surface issues seen in the leaves and branches. Not in The illumitorium! We'll be diving into the roots and the soil so we can heal the whole tree! It may seem like a lot when we see it all at once, but this is a path not just a program. We take it step-by-step, little-by-little, all in our own perfect timing.



Don't Settle for Sober!

"I was most afraid that working with Jace was going to be nothing more than I could get from working with my sponsor or therapist. Those fears were quickly laid to rest when we began talking about what 'I' wanted for my life. While a therapist and a sponsor help me excavate and heal my past, Jace helps me construct an amazing future."

Bill Moates

About Your Facilitator

Jace is an intuitive guide for people working to gain freedom from addiction through self-mastery.
She partners with warriors in recovery to master the self beneath the addiction not the symptoms that result from it. 

With Jace you're sure to get real, go deep and have lots of fun along the way!
In 2015 she began speaking publicly about her personal experience with sex addiction.
Jace has been featured onscreen, online and in print across the globe as a pioneer in battling stigma surrounding addiction and trauma, shifting the way people perceive adversity, and empowering others to use their past to build their future. 
Learn more about Jace....

"Jace has helped me find my center and feel relief at times of crises. She is very loving, compassionate and has always listened to me with an open heart and no judgment of where I am in my process. Jace is a bright light that has guided me to get out of my own darkness."

Ines Miller

 

  

 

"Sobriety is not enough for a
BOLDLY SATISFYING LIFE.
It is Only the Beginning!"

 

 

 

"Jace has given me the support and confidence to ask for what I need in an intimate relationship, and my partner has been responsive! My new routines have enabled greater accountability and rigorous honesty, things I've found to be mandatory for my sobriety. After working with her I have a better understanding of how I tick and greater awareness of my progress."

About The illumitorium

The illumitorium is part dojo, part playground, part support group, part laboratory, part movement, part mindset for effervescent giants tired of dimming their lights and shrinking their minds in order to fit in. Here we honor weirdos as wise. 

The illumitorium Recovery Tribe is a special space within the larger illumitorium that focuses on the specific needs of people with addiction who seek recovery through the path of self mastery.

The illumitorium is a unique community that offers practical tools for applying spiritual principles in everyday situations to help you live a more joyous, abundant, meaningful life. The life only YOU can live.

In The illumitorium we focus on Spirit-led self mastery without shame, judgement, demands or dogma.

Together we have everything we need to be the light we wish to see in the world.

All paths to Spirit welcome (including Spirit-curious)!

Our Vision

We help people free themselves from addiction and illuminate the world through a recovery path of self-mastery.  

Our Mission

We empower people to illuminate their highest potential and be the light they wish to see in the world.

Our Values

Love Over Fear

There are truly only two options in every situation: Love or Fear. We practice choosing Love over fear on a daily basis. This is a shame-free space where we learn and grow without judgement. 

Divine Inner Wisdom

We are all spiritual beings having a spiritual experience through the human condition. Everything we need is already inside us waiting to be accessed.

Acceptance

Acceptance is a cornerstone of spiritual maturity and ensures that we are working with, not against life. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it…see how this transforms your whole life.

Spiritual Growth

We came here to continually grow and experience life. Once in adulthood, life is more about unlearning than learning. The truth of us is wholeness, love, and perfection. Our “job” is to uncover and release all the blocks that prevent us from living that truth.

Inspired Action

From a foundation of Love and state of acceptance, with a connection to divine inner wisdom and a desire for spiritual growth, we take action in our lives and in the world as conscious members of a globally connected society.

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm sure you've got some questions by this point. Let's address them!

Self-mastery is a process of gaining sovereignty over your whole being so as to become a conscious co-creator of your life. The path includes mastering 10 levels that make up our life and self:
1. Past
2. Present
3. Future
4. Mind
5. Body
6. Spirit
7. Belief
8. Emotion
9. Thought
10: Action

Mind you, this doesn't happen overnight - and we may not each master every area in this lifetime - but I can tell you one thing, if you put the work into this program, you'll see improvement in every single one of those areas. 

On the healing journey, you always get out what you put in!

This program is currently being built out which means you get access to reduced beta stage pricing! It also means you may experience some bumps along the way as we get it all put together.

There are three levels at which you can join The illumitorium.

The Community Level is being offered at a 75% discount, which brings it down to $8.25/mo during the beta stage.

The Tribe Level is being offered at a 50% discount, which makes it $55.50/mo during the beta stage.

The Personal Guide Level is being offered at a 25% discount, which makes it $582.75/mo during the beta stage. Please keep in mind this level is limited to only a few people since it includes one-on-one guidance and support. 

The beta stage is likely going to last 3 months. All members will be kept in the loop as we progress.

You are welcome to come and go as you please. The best results come with a consistent community, but that only works if everyone who is there WANTS to be there. If you join and find it's not your jam, you can cancel at any time and will not continue to be charged. Easy Peasy!

I don’t believe in lost causes, and I haven’t met one yet! If you’ve got the determination, this will definitely work for you.

The illumitorium Recovery Tribe is not like a 12 Step meeting or the 12 Step program of recovery. It can act as a great supplement to working that program or as what some have called the "graduate program of 12 Step." 

 

There are many differences between 12 Step and The illumitorium, including:

 

1. How sobriety is viewed. In 12 Step sobriety is the end goal; however, we see it as just the beginning. Sobriety is crucial to a full life, but it does not itself create it. In The illumitoirum we each proactively work to co-create meaningful, happy, healthy, fulfilling lives - what I call the boldly satisfying life! Due to the unique elements of having addiction, we do this work with that background and biology in mind and use it to our advantage. 

 

2. Unlike 12 Step, I don't believe there is anything wrong with us. I don't think we have defects, I see such things as simply traits and behaviors that are out of alignment with who we truly are. They are outdated tools that no longer serve us, but they are not defects in our characters or markers of something being wrong with us. What 12 Steps refers to as our "assets" and "defects", I think of as our "grown areas" and "growth areas".

 

3. Though a thoroughly worked 12 Step program can lead to many life changes and good healing, many people get stuck in just addressing the symptoms of addiction instead of the actual self beneath it. In The illumitorium, we focus on holistic transformation that addresses addiction but does not focus solely on it. Just as we are much more than the addiction, so must our healing be. 

 

4. In 12 Step people are encouraged to claim being an addict as their identity - who they are, "Hi, I'm Jace, and I'm a sex addict." Though I absolutely understand why they have that be our identifier, it also reinforces addiction in the brain and mind. Having participated in 12 Step for several years, I personally proclaimed this thousands of times - each one adding to the programming of my subconscious mind that addiction is who I am, which subsequently kept showing up in my reality (as all things in the subconscious mind do). Unfortunately, it builds failure right into the foundation. In The illumitorium we don't pretend addiction isn't part of our experience, we simply don't accept that it is who we are as people. 

 

5. We don't just work a program of recovery, illuminators walk the path of self-mastery. Yes, we do work specific to sobriety, but we don't stop there. The work we do is intended to give us what we need on every level to free ourselves from addiction entirely and create lives so satisfying only the bold ever attempt them. 

 

6. As part of the Tribe, members work a guided path of self-mastery that includes weekly lessons and assignments, which can be done at your convenience and pace in the membership portal. Some of the lessons focus on addiction directly, while others explore our lives, selves, choices, relationships, needs, desires, goals, finances, routines, creativity, fun, etc. All lessons are created specifically with addiction science in mind so that we can use it to our advantage in our transformation, not our obstacle to it.

 

7. During our weekly Tribe sessions, people have a chance to discuss the lesson they're on, obstacles they're coming up against, successes they've experienced, questions they have or current circumstances they are struggling with. Unlike 12 Step meetings where no feedback is given, I facilitate these sessions and guide people through what they are working on. Much like 12 Step meetings this is a shame-free, no judgment zone where we all embrace one another wherever we are, whoever we are. Together we explore, discover, strive, heal, grow and celebrate. Together we THRIVE. 

 

8. Every member will have access to our private online community to engage with between sessions. Here people can check-in, get accountability, ask for help, share wins, grab quick tools/resources, and connect with other powerful warriors on this heroic journey.

If you've tried 12 Step and didn't dig it or you're working it right now and want something more, The illumitorium could be just the place for you!

We meet each week as a group for 60 minutes on Tuesday evenings at 6:00MDT* and Thursdays at 12:00MDT*. 

You are welcome to join either OR both sessions! 

Please make sure to convert this to your timezone.

 

Yes, indeed! The realm of recovery is always expanding with the advancement of science, consciousness and modern knowledge. In reality, a lot of people struggle to get and stay sober - even though they’re doing the work. Most programs have sobriety as the focus and the desired end result. I believe this is a formula for failure. Just stopping something isn’t enough. You’ve got to create a life beyond sobriety - one you love so much you couldn’t dream of giving it up. If you’ve got the willingness but not the sobriety, this group is totally for you!

That's totally fine. You don't have to believe in anything specific to be in this group.

To be honest, I don't believe in the traditional God known to Western Christianity, and I have a lot of people in my life who I love and respect who absolutely do. I could never say that isn't THE God because no one really knows, but it is not an understanding of Spirit that speaks to me. In fact, I had a lot of anger toward God when I first started recovery. I was determined to heal without the aid of a so-called "Higher Power". 

Spoiler Alert: That plan failed miserably. I think the reason for that was the fact that there is something greater than my ego-self out there, whether that is a separate being, a belief system, the intelligent Universe or simply my True Potential. So long as I was depending on my ego-self alone to heal, I was doomed to fail.

When we say Spirit-led, all we mean is having the openness to lean into something greater than our ego-selves. No one really knows what "it" is, and you're encouraged to lean into whatever feels true and helpful to you. Our relationship with that grows as our relationship with ourselves grow. 

There is absolutely no "right" or "wrong" here.

Recovery coaching focuses on getting people sober and helping them stay there. In time, a great recovery coach can work with people to improve their current circumstances and plan for future goals. These folks are awesome if your goal is sobriety. I believe sobriety cannot be the end goal. It is only the beginning. Sobriety gives the brain the time it needs to heal and reprogram - both essential but not enough. It is the gateway to living a full life - it is not a full life.

The illumitorium Recovery Tribe looks at sobriety as the necessary foundation for building a boldly satisfying life. We’re going to expand on all the amazing work you’ve done so far in recovery, break down remaining barriers, create a custom system for your unique situation and set you up with all you need to get to the next level. My goal is to equip you so well I no longer have a job!

Don't settle for sobriety.

Nope. I am not. I cannot offer official diagnosis, prescribe medication or anything of the like. What I can do is help provide the guidance, support, accountability and tools needed to not only get sober but live an exceptional life! I highly recommend including a therapist as part of your support team. Abuse and trauma are very prevalent in people suffering with addiction. Working with a trained specialist in this area is invaluable.

I work with people recovering from any and all areas where addiction has presented itself. I also work with people connected to those with addiction and others on the path of self-mastery; however, this group is specific for people recovering from addiction. 

You bet! In my eyes, we are all brothers and sisters kickin' ass under the loving protection of a power much greater than we.

I take this work very seriously. My life depends on it, and likely yours does too. I do not put myself or my sobriety at risk under any circumstances. I maintain healthy boundaries and highly value being a person of integrity. I have worked with men and women of all sexual orientations and have not had an issue yet.

I warmly welcome it; however, this group isn't the best place for it. Head to the contact page to connect with me:

I have been close to many people with addiction and understand how difficult it is. It left me feeling helpless, overwhelmed, frustrated, angry, and scared. Though I cannot work with your loved one through you, I can help you with the effects it is having on you and provide you with special tools to ensure you are living the exceptional life
you deserve.

I absolutely do. I fully believe in the power and necessity of having a great support team. Mine consists of several guides, a mentor, a cosmic energy coach, a theta healer, a mastermind group, a meditation circle, my family, close friends, and my two dogs, Charlie & Indiana. And of course the Universe itself.

If you're looking to sign up at the Tribe or Guide level and have already purchased the Introduction to Sex Addiction course, send an email to [email protected]. We'll get you a refund on the course once you've signed up for either level.

I first joined recovery for sex addiction in June 2014. I trudged along for months going from short lengths of sobriety to full blown relapses. In February 2015 I hit a new bottom that was scary enough for me to start taking this whole addiction thing seriously. My illusion of "I got this" came crashing down. I didn't have control of it and realized I couldn't do it on my own. Most importantly I no longer wanted to. So I sat down, shut up and started listening to what had worked for others. This began on February 2, 2015, and I am grateful to be have been sexually sober since that day.

I have also included many other areas in my path where addiction had shown up, such as alcohol, work, food, stress, spending, codependency… pretty much whatever triggers the addiction cycle in the brain.

I am now able to engage in these areas in a healthy way that models the growing love and respect I have for myself. I believe with long-term dedication this is possible for every person with addiction.
