Jason Holland

Spiritual Life Coach, Certified Breathwork Facilitator, Artist, Designer & Blogger

Playa del Carmen, Mexico
Heart-Centered Creator by Jason Holland exists to help like-minded gay men (and our allies) discover wholeness and self-acceptance via guided, breathwork meditation, spiritual life coaching, and inspirational living to create a life you love.

Heart-Centered Creator represents the other side of gay culture: inner strength, authenticity, vulnerability, courage, and love. Since these values are universal regardless of sexual preference or gender expression, I support anyone committed to their healing journey and personal transformation.

It takes courage, commitment, and determination to overcome false fears and limit negative beliefs about ourselves. It can be challenging letting go of the outdated thoughts we’ve held on to.

Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, though, I am here to tell you: each of us can choose to heal the past, live in the moment, and achieve our full creative potential with joy and abundance.

He takes a holistic view of every project, where it fits in with your company’s goals, and how your audience will experience it.

Jason's “one man agency” combination of skills makes work more efficient and personalized without sacrificing quality. He asks the right questions, always willing to work within any given parameters, while also making insightful recommendations based on his many years of experience. I highly recommend and look forward to every project (and Zoom meeting!) with Jason."

Testimonial

"I was introduced to Jason Holland at the height of my frustration with a 10-year-old website I’d inherited that had been hacked by a robot and abandoned by its previous caretaker. Trust was a big concern of mine. I needed a talented professional, someone who would follow through and stick with us for – well forever.

What Jason did for our website was miraculous! It was the most elegant of facelifts together with added features like a privacy page that we of course needed but didn’t have, pop ups to gather email addresses and deposit them safely into our Mailchimp account, and so much more.

He organized a tutorial on how to manage the site for my team and recorded it so that we’d have it as a reference tool.

What I appreciate most about Jason, beyond the fact that he is extraordinarily talented in every aspect of web design – aesthetics, methods, strategies and all things SEO – is that he is a delight to work with. He listens, is kind, attentive and thoughtful. He knows the value of his work and is fair with his pricing. I like that.

I could go on for hours, but suffice to say, if you have the opportunity to work with Jason, you won’t regret it. HE IS GOOD!"
