Fast Facts
Janet’s discovered Mindfulness when she was in personal crisis. Her youngest adopted son was suffering severe emotional problems from being abused in foster care, and his behavior was tearing the family apart. Desperately seeking stress release, Janet found Mindfulness, which helped her gain inner peace and led to help for her son and his subsequent healing.

A former executive at ABC/Disney and CBS Television Networks for 20 years, Janet served as publicist or worked in management for many ground-breaking, classic TV shows including “Roseanne,” “Good Times,” “The Jeffersons,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Waltons,” “Rhoda,” and “Full House.” In addition, she’s worked on “The Emmys,” “The Grammys” and “The People’s Choice Awards,” as well as many TV movies.

Janet was awarded the national Publicist Guild of America Award for the “Twin Peaks” television series.

What people are saying…
“Janet shows us how to love and also how to let go. This allows us to remain in control of our own minds instead of trying to control what is outside of us.”
– Thich Nhat Hanh, world-renowned Zen master pioneer who brought Mindfulness to the US; Peace and Human Rights Activist nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Meet Janet Alston Jackson…

Award-winning author Janet Alston Jackson believes that “You can have inner peace, even in the midst of chaos.” This is the unwavering belief and teaching of her trainings, speeches, and coaching,

Janet received the USA Book News Award for her biography, A Cry for Light: Journey into Love, and her other book, Your Happiness Is Within, was nominated for the Global E-books Award.

A communications expert, Janet shares how she had to find inner peace through practicing Mindfulness during her 20 years promoting celebrities for ABC and CBS Television Networks while raising three children, one with special needs. “Mindfulness kept me balanced because I was able to release stress in high-pressured situations,” she explains.

A Certified Law of Attraction Advanced Practitioner, she teaches how wealthy celebrities and those working behind the scenes in the entertainment industry use the Law of Attraction, which anyone can use to manifest their goals and dreams. As a publicist, and in management, Janet has worked on ground-breaking classic television shows including “Roseanne,” “Good Times,” “The Jeffersons,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Waltons,” “Rhoda,” and “Full House.” In addition, she worked on “The Emmys,” “The Grammys,” “The People’s Choice Awards” and many television movies. She was awarded the national Publicist Guild of America Award for the “Twin Peaks,” television series.

Janet left the entertainment industry when she adopted two of her three children. She was shocked and saddened to learn that, at that time, there were 50,000 children in Los Angeles county who were wards of the court because, like her adopted children, they’d been neglected or abused. She and her husband, Walter, founded a non-profit organization to raise the self-esteem of children and to teach parents Mindfulness to release stress with hopes of keeping families together.

Janet spent four years in a non-denominational ministry. She received the Three Jewels and Five Mindfulness Trainings Certification from world-renowned Mindfulness teacher and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. Mr. Nhat Hanh, who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King, also wrote an intro to Janet’s memoir, A Cry for Light: A Journey Into Love. The book chronicles Janet’s journey into Mindfulness practice, and tells how it helped her raise her emotionally disturbed adopted son. Janet’s Dharma name is “Compassionate Healer of the Heart.”

Janet is a licensed Heartmath coach, Reiki Master, and is certified in The Law of Attraction and Mindfulness teaching. She is also a volunteer Los Angeles Zoo docent, where her favorite duty is taking small animals to hospitals, senior centers, and schools for special needs children. She also volunteers, teaching incarcerated teen girls creative writing. Janet is the mother of three grown children and lives in Los Angeles with her husband, speaker/author Walter Jackson, Msc.D., and their Maltipoo “baby-dog,” Satchi.
