Greetings ~ My name is Jett Koda. I currently live in Portland, Oregon on the traditional village sites of the Multnomah, Wasco, Bands of Chinook and many other tribes who made their homes along the Columbia River. My recent ancestors are from Hungary and New Hampshire (traditional ancestral homeland of the Abenaki, Pennacook and Wabanaki People) and more distant ones from Quebec, France, England & Ireland. My pronouns are she/they.
I am an author, parent, healer, Reiki Master, Tarot reader & counselor, artist, Social Work student and poet.
I am honored to be working with you to discover your soul truths, assist in your healing journey and activate your gifts. I have been working the arts of energy healing, divination, ceremony, and soul support for almost two and a half decades. I have been clairvoyant since childhood and continuously received messages from the unseen world as well as my ancestors.
The clarity and inspiration to enter this journey as a healer began after I experienced cancer at age 19 when I first faced the 'mortality reality.' I began training with my first teachers in Reiki, animism, Tarot and the wheel of the year.
Since then, I had the incredible blessing to live in India for 7 years and on the Big Island of Hawai'i for 6 years where I received many teachings on meditation, spirituality, healing and forgiveness, land offerings and ceremonial work. This work comes from both my direct experiences with spirit and ancestors as well as the grace of indigenous community members, spiritual teachers and traditional lineages.
I am a student and practitioner of all that is death and dying: grief work, trauma, loss (cultural, personal, familial), intergenerational healing, and ancestral work. My wish to work more deeply with death and dying deepened after losing my first baby daughter only five days after her birth. Not only actual death, but all transitions are my most beloved work including spiritual initiations, gender transitions, relation~shifts and letting go ceremonial work.
I work with hospice, co-facilitate Death Cafe's and am training as a Death Doula. I am currently in a Master's of Social Work program which supplements my work with clients that is trauma informed and holds the nuances of social justice awareness. I am consistently training in anti-racism work and am on a path of listening, learning, collaborating and connecting.
I am profoundly grateful to my many teachers, particularly Kahuna Ali'i Kumu Ehulani Stephany, H.H. Ogyen Trinley Dorje 17th Karmapa, H.E. Tai Situ Rinpoche, Rowan Wilson and Rubybleu Puja.
In addition to my human teachers, I work with guides including the Arcturians, inter-dimensional light beings who offers assistance in healing our water body and activating our light body. I was contacted directly by an Arcturian emmisary in 2018 (I had no knowledge of this word or collective beings prior). Since then, they are an integral aspect of my healing work.
I offer some discounts & trades to BIPOC and LGTBQ+ community, please inquire! Five percent of my profit goes to support reparations for communities of color. As a queer person, I have a special affinity for working with folx in the LGTBQ+ community around spiritual matters, emotional support and ceremonial healing.
I look forward to connecting and discovering the healing journey with you!
From the moment I met Jett, I was struck by her authenticity. Her work is grounded in rich life experiences and deep study. And those experiences give her a unique perspective. I have found myself returning again and again to learn from her classes on tarot, journeying and ceremony as well as to receive reiki and intuitive readings. I always come away from these with something new and valuable. Sometimes, it is insight on a question I have or a new way of looking at a problem. Other times, it is relief from pain or other physical issues through reiki. I highly recommend you attend Jett’s next class or schedule a session with her. You won’t be disappointed! - Samantha
Jett’s powerful healing work helped me to first let go of past trauma, and then to connect more deeply with spirit and the earth. For months I debated whether or not to take certain medicine, and through the work with Jett I made peace with my decision to take the medicine. Now, I have more energy and am blessed with good health. The work gave me hope that my dream to adopt a child was just around the corner. - Sara
I found Jett through reading her book The Sacred Path of Reiki. I knew quickly that I wanted to learn Reiki from her. Her style of Reiki resonated with what I was looking for. Learning Reiki has allowed me to make the conscious choice to let go of negative substance abuse. It has helped me to heal my past and find my own inner light so that I may be a beacon for others. As Jett says in her book 'Reiki is Life Affirming' and I couldn’t agree with that statement more. - Paul
I have been working with Jett for the past several years through her healing sessions and her Tarot readings. Her intuition and guidance have always been clear, precise and very meaningful in regards to what would be happening in my life at that particular moment. My favorite story is that Jett blew a hummingbird into my heart during a session. A week later I was having a session with a chiropractor who I was not aware did energy work as well; after scanning my spine he stopped to tell me that I had a little bird in my heart that was emitting a lot of light. It was such a delightful affirmation. Just two days after that, I was sitting in front of a fountain in Joshua Tree and a hummingbird came along and buzzed around in front of me for about ten minutes! I have since been using the hummingbird in metta meditation – well really it seems to come out at its own will – but it feels like the hummingbird’s wings are spreading the metta out from my heart center. Jett is a truly gifted and blessed healer and has been an inspiring teacher. - Rabiah
I am grateful for the work that Jett and I did together as I am positive it contributed to my mindset and lack of fear during the labor and birth processes. - Melanie
In India 2008, I met this amazing person named Jett Koda. This person knows how hold a space so one feels safe to process and express oneself. She is a tremendous storyteller , a superb director of journeys and rituals. She knows how to empower people. During a water ritual in Rhode Island, Jett told a story and drummed, directing us the whole time and empowering us. We gave flowers to the water goddess and we prayed for what we want to attract to ourselves and our lives. At that moment it rained and then a pink rainbow appeared and a golden sun. I was not surprised. This is Jett Koda. A magical, fiery spirit. - Karen, LMT/Bodyworker
Then Jett (the workshop instructor) spoke about herself – her path – and what the rest of the day was going to be about. Jett said there would be some journey time as well as discussion time….and then the end of the day would be around ceremony. She said that Ceremony dissolves ego and brings you back to a state of grace. And right then….she had me! She said that the ceremony would lead us in the moment and that we would all be involved in the ceremony. She continued to say how we have lost ceremony and rituals in our life….and how important it is that we bring ourselves back to this place….this way of life. And here I thought of how my teacher has always said to us….THAT WE ARE THE CEREMONY! OK…so at this moment…you might guess…..that I was beginning to feel those strings speak to me…yep…speaking loudly. The Big Island has always been a place of personal healing for me….and my heart swelled in this moment as I thought….”Here I am again…being given a gift of healing.” As I came forward in the ceremony and stood before these women who I had only known for a day…..I never felt so supported and loved. I smiled and said to them that I was not surprised that I had been given the word LOVE. I told them of my path that I had been on since my stay in Hawaii. I explained to them that I was on a quest of self-love. I recounted my story of how I had an offering to make and how up until now I could not complete this part of my ceremony. - Stephanie
