About Janet

I am an award-winning author, a certified Mindfulness teacher, and a corporate trainer. I teach live online classes for Emindful, which helps individuals and organizations become more resilient and support greater wellness. My biography, “A Cry for Light: A Journey into Love,” won the USA Book News Award.

I have taught employees Mindfulness and effective communication for companies including Boeing Aircraft, KIA Manufacturing, Univision, T-Mobile, Ultimate Software, and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Other organizations I have taught include law enforcement, health-care workers, parents, teachers, college students, and entertainment industry professionals. 

For 20 years I was a publicist and in management for CBS and ABC television networks.
I was the unit publicist on groundbreaking classic television shows including: "RoseAnne," "Good Times," "The Jeffersons," "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "All in the Family," "The Waltons," and "Rhoda," "Full House." In addition to working on television movies, "The Emmys," "The Grammys" and "The People's Choice Awards."

I was awarded the national Publicist Guild of America Award for the "Twin Peaks," television series.

When I adopted two of my three children, I left the entertainment industry. I was shocked and saddened to learn at that time, 50,000 children in Los Angeles county were wards of the court because they had been abused or neglected like her adopted children. This led me to volunteer as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for children in the system, and to write my book:

As a member of the International Mindfulness Teachers Association, I coach industry professionals on Mindfulness and Spiritual development. My certifications include Mindfulness, Hearthmath Coach, and the Laws of Attraction. I am a member of the International Mindfulness Teachers Association.

My memoir Description:
"A Cry for Light: A Journey Into Love"- USA BOOK AWARD Winner for Christian Inspiration. "A Cry for Light" is a fast-paced memoir about a Hollywood publicist (Janet Alston Jackson), who finds inner peace when she discovers Mindfulness, (how to live in the now), after her emotionally-disturbed adopted son tears her family apart. This profound and insightful story is inspirational, and provides hope for individuals going through chaos in their lives. A reminder that anyone can find peace and self love amid the storm.

Thank you for your interest.
