jeannetteJeannette Ponder, Director

Jeannette has been a holistic health professional for over 20 years. In her twenties she lived and worked with a service community, the PeaceWeavers where she cooked for private clients, retreats and PeaceWeaver events. Through her work with the PeaceWeavers, Jeannette cared for an old Buddhist monk, Bhante Dharmawara, who shared stories from his life of traveling the world and being of service. He had a close relationship with Prime Minister Nehru and worked with Mahatma Gandhi. He lead “green light” meditation and was passionate about supporting people in making healthy choices.

Bhante insisted colon cleansing was essential for vital health and longevity, he would often say “cluttered colon, cluttered mind” and “if your digestive system does not work properly than how can you expect your body to work properly?” Working with Bhante, Jeannette became a colon therapist in 1994. Bhante continued to travel the world and would stay with the PeaceWeavers every couple of years; he lived to be 110 years old.

Since that time, Jeannette moved to Chester County, Pennsylvania and opened the Art of Health and the AoH School of Colon Hydrotherapy, where she has been educating people about the wonders of the digestive system, the ease and fun of whole foods cooking and that healthy living is an art that can be easy and fun!

Jeannette is a National Board Certified Colon Hydro-Therapist, Instructor of Colon Hydrotherapy and a Certified Nutritional Counselor. She is a member of The International Association of Colon Hydrotherapy and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
