If you've been trying to recover for years, it can be really frustrating fighting the same battle. Especially when you feel there is more to life than calories and counting steps.
And if you're newer to recovery, you may feel in over your head.
You hear full stories of recovery...but can't wrap your head around how they actually made the full transition. Like how in the world are they eating and exercising intuitively?!
You'd love to find peace, but how? Do they have something you don't? Nope!
Accepting your body and not using food and exercise as a form of self-punishment.
Being able to stop overanalyzing everything you eat and start to eat from a place of full permission.
Finding healthy ways to cope with painful emotions and stressful situations without reaching toward or away from food.
Finally being able to travel, experience social situations, and share your gifts with the world without being distracted by food and negative body talk.
Many, many people, want their recovery to be in a linear path and get discouraged when they aren't making steady progress or experience a setback.
This is normal.
Recovery is a process. It is a mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual transformation that takes on a distinct set of phases.
The first year, the tiny bamboo plant is watered & fertilized,
BUT nothing happens.
It is watered and fertilized for another whole year
And nothing happens.
Then another year, And another,….But still nothing happens
Then, on the fifth year, it shoots up to the sky
And in 6 weeks grows 90 feet.
To an outside observer, giant bamboo grows 90 ft. in just 6 weeks!
But, of course, in reality this growth takes 5 years.
If the plant had stopped getting water at any time during those
5 years it would have died.
What was happening all those years unseen, under ground?
An enormous network of roots was developing to support the bamboo’s growth spurt. Every drop of water made a difference.
Growth takes patience and perseverance.
The School of Recovery™ will help you grow strong supportive roots.
Yes, my business(es) have helped nearly 2M warriors in 184 countries understand their eating disorder on a deeper level. You absolutely gotta understand a growth mindset in order to make this happen.
With a Master's in Marine Geosciences, I love evidence-based science, but I'm equally invested in soul. Using archetypal astrology and the lunar cycle, I've been able to help myself and others connect to their special gifts and core authentic self. While providing a foundation of self-compassion to build the emotional resilience needed to express this potential in one's life.
Eating disorders have so much to do with a repression of feminine energy. If you don't know what that means, you've come to the right place.
Science rooted in logic, the physical, and numbers is inherently, masculine.
Soul grounded in wisdom, the emotional, and intuition, is inherently, feminine.
In order to fully address the deeper issues of an eating disorder, both must come into awareness and balance.
Most treatment approaches leave the soul piece out, leaving many people feeling like they didn't do it right or aren't "recovery material". The School of Recovery™ takes a holistic approach to healing, honoring both intuition and intellect.
Dental Hygienist (in training) and Artist
Marie believes recovery is like peeling back layers of the onion. She had peeled back a couple layers when she was trying to recover in the past. But since the School of Recovery™ she feels like a really thick layer has came off and she's able to focus on the core of herself. Listen to her interview to learn more about her inspiring story!
An "Accidental Artist" and Grandma
Errin is a 43 year old Grandma who spent years stifling her creativity. This year she acknowledged she had binge eating disorder. She joined the School of Recovery™ to find more support, but little did she know she would re-connect with her love of art. Now she is being featured by Kickstarter for her "Recovery Reflections Journal" Project. Check out Errin's interview now.
Geologist by day and Tarot Card Enthusiast by Night
Get this: after going through the School of Recovery™ and learning more about the feminine/masculine principles, Daria was able to see how much she was letting perfectionism rule her life and suffocate her intuition and true life calling. Listen to the video to hear more about her incredible story of finding acceptance with herself after over a decade of struggling with bulimia.
Mom of 3 boys, Entrepreneur, and Writer
Diagnosed with PCOS, Lisette once thought she'd never be able to have children. Fast-forward several years and she is the mom of 3 healthy boys! Now that they're in school, she has more time on her hands and is using it to build a business and write a book INSTEAD of obsessing about food. Listen to her interview to see how the School of Recovery™ has made a huge difference in her life monetarily and creatively.
In the School of Recovery™, I'm sharing the exact strategies I've used and steps I've take to find my way out of total darkness to lighting the lives of millions of people around the world.
I believe you are worthy of a life beyond an eating disorder. And I'm going to help you tap into your true values and show you what natural gifts you have that are waiting to come forth.
The School of Recovery™ is a completely unique experience you cannot find anywhere else in the world. It's one of a kind. Just like you.
In the School of Recovery™, you'll learn how to build an internal foundation of self-compassion and gratitude, discover your unique gifts and life purpose, AND develop skills that will serve you positively for a lifetime. All the while doing this work with an engaged community of warriors on the same path as you.
My exhausted heart and soul was ready to call a truce with the poisonous voice in my head and my hurtful, punishing habits. So I came to the School of Recovery™. There, working with Jessica, I learned how to embrace new, nurturing practices. I gently challenged my thoughts and actions. I started a consistent self care program. Instead of being condemning, I learned to offer myself compassion. The voices in my head have grown quieter.
One of the biggest gains I have made happened recently. I caught sight of my naked body in the mirror. For the first time I didn't cringe in shame and drown in self recrimination. I literally and spontaneously looked at my body and thought.."You poor thing. You deserve love and respect. I am so so sorry for what I have done to you. We are working on this. We will get there". I felt compassion for my sweet, hardworking body.
I have a long way to go. My brain has spent years being the bully. However, I am gently and consistently implementing all I have learned from the The School of Recovery™ program, which I am so grateful and thankful for.
The steps I took with Jessica helped me shift my perspective and show that small changes wouldn't kill me.
The slow transition into recovery that I made with Jessica, helped me reconnect with my passion for travel. Before, all I remember of my travels was the anxiety I felt around food and now I feel this profound freedom. Happiness. Completeness. I don't need my ED to feel complete anymore.
My job enables me to leave the country once a month, and I now have a boyfriend that wants to move around as much as I do, and we take trips every weekend (and even go out to dinner).
I would be lying to you if I said I was fully recovered. But I do know my obsessions are gone, my anxiety is at all time low, and I derive happiness and joy from things that actually matter - not starving myself. Jessica was the key that unlocked all of this for me. I will always be grateful to her for.
Jessica Flint supported me when I was taking my first steps towards recovery with compassion.
I was full of doubts, fears and she gave me hope. Thanks to Jessica , I finally gave up an ED behavior that I had used since I was 10 years old.
She was there when I felt like giving up, she celebrated victories with me, she gave me hope that things can change.
Jessica's always giving me advice that helps me overcome challenges in my life and embrace life as a warrior.
As a woman in my middle age years, I have had an eating disorder nearly my entire life. I never had treatment as nothing existed when I was a teen - not even the name of the diagnosis!
I benefitted deeply by all of the lessons in the School of Recovery™, truly. I found my outlook changing, looking at life with gratitude, and seeing abundance surrounding me. A perspective that will never leave me now. ED had me in the grip of what I didn’t have, a sense of scarcity in life that could never be satiated. Now I see the daily abundance that surrounds me, and feel like a part of the universe where I am supported, nourished, held…I see my place in the Universe… (Quite contrary to Ed thinking!).
Further this has enabled me to develop and sustain a Mindfulness and Yoga practice. My sense of deepening openness, tranquility and trust, again, is quite the opposite of being in the grip of ED- where ED’s anxiety ensnarled me. There are still moments of challenge and anxiety that occur in my life. Gratefully I have learned skills in this program which will enable me to not rely on food as an ally in these situations. I have new tools and a new outlook. I am thankful to truly feel I am on the road to recovery.
Now almost midway through the School of Recovery™, you'll have solid skills under your belt to face fear foods and difficult dynamics over the holiday's.
I haven't always felt so confident and assured of myself around food and my body. I know what it's like to work so hard on recovery only to feel like you're getting nowhere. Truuuuuust me. I know the struggle.
When I first started recovery, I was pursuing a career in oceanography and felt like my weight was what was holding me back from everything in life. I counted calories religiously. Collected recipes like it was a second major. AND planned my days around exercise. Despite all my efforts I was insecure and judgmental of the woman I saw in the mirror.
In other words, I. freaking. get. it.
And despite investing well over $30K in my recovery, hoping with all my heart it would grow, I still felt stuck. Like there was something that I wasn't quite getting.
At the time I just started a Master's program in Marine Geosciences and was studying formula's left and right. But recovering from an eating disorder was like an enigma. I felt powerless. I was exhausted.
In less than a year, I started to learn and develop a system -- one that actually worked -- in order to bring more self-acceptance and purpose into my life and fully heal from my eating disorder.
Fast forward five years later I was able to use the SAME SYSTEM to start Recovery Warriors™ from ground zero and help nearly 2M people worldwide. AND since I know how well this system works, I'm using it to build True Warrior™, an online learning community for living your best life.

Recovery is not about luck. And that's a good thing.
Being able to live a life free of debilitating food and body obsessions, is about learning how to become more self-compassionate and connected to your deeper authentic self.
As it turns out, this is teachable (and learnable). Wouldn't you like to know how to connect to this part of yourself? I can't wait to share all with you in the School of Recovery™.
Economist & Non-Profit Community Leader
Before enrolling in the School of Recovery™, Emily was driven by fear of not getting better. She found herself being judgmental of her recovery and progress, especially with the body image and weight restoration pieces. By being around people who get it, she felt less isolated and was able to connect to the motivation and support she needed. Now she's embracing self-compassion much more naturally and her recovery is no longer driven by fear, but by getting to where she wants to be.
Social butterfly who regained her wings
On the brink of a relapse, Laura found the School of Recovery™. It was here in conjunction with therapy she was able to reconnect to the joys in her life, her friends and traveling. Now with a trip lined up to Germany, she can't believe she is actually looking forward to enjoying the local food. Learn how the School of Recovery™ helped Laura makes such big leaps in her recovery.
Passionate Writer & Learner
Rachael found herself stuck in a place where she was oversaturated with learning about HOW to recover. She wanted to get better, but found herself in resistance to giving up the comfort and safety of the eating disorder. Finding out what her "WHY", was what she was missing. After the School of Recovery™, she's passionately pursuing her heart's path and staying in close connection with her classmates for extra accountability.
What phase of the Warrior's Journey are you at now?
When you're ready to commit to change and pursue full recovery, the School of Recovery™ is the ultimate training ground. It'll provide you with the support to try new things, go to new places, meet new people, and think new thoughts.JOIN THE WAITLIST!
The School of Recovery™ works incredibly well and is much, much faster than trying to figure out everything on your own, but only if you're willing to put in the time and do the activities.
I aim to make things as SIMPLE as possible, because I know that many of my students have full-time jobs, children, or other obligations, but you need to be willing to do the work, too.
This program is also best for people who are ready to recover -- despite the fear -- and want the skills to take their recovery to the next level.
🚫 You're not ready to recover and willing to do the work it takes to strengthen your recovery.
🚫 You're not willing to approach new learnings with an open mind and try new things to see new results.
🚫 You are not willing to budge and inch in challenging your food rules and routines.
🚫 You're not open to investing yourself in the practice of self-compassion and gratitude.
🚫 You have no tolerance or curiosity in exploring the abundance of support that comes from awakening your spiritual life and opening up to something bigger than yourself.
🚫 You're not willing to consciously let go of playing the role of a victim and embrace your personal power for your healing.
IMPORTANT: The School of Recovery™ is NOT a substitution for seeking professional treatment like a therapist or a dietitian.

No. However, Jessica does weekly live office hours, leads intention setting gatherings on the new moon, and check's in on the community daily.
The community is powered by a third party software called Slack.
Social media has been linked to higher levels of loneliness, envy, anxiety, depression, narcissism and decreased social skills. While we are not advocating against social media, we think your mental and emotional experience will be enhanced on a separate platform.
Slack has a user friendly mobile and desktop app and is much easier to organize conversations around topics through it's use of "channels". Previous students LOOOVED it!
