Jill Ayn Schneider, Director of Revolutionary Healer Publishing, LLC

Jill Ayn Schneider is in love with life.  After teaching elementary school for seven years, using non-traditional approaches, she found herself in Nepal and India volunteering in a Tibetan Refugee School while practicing Meditation and Yoga in 1973. She even felt compelled to shave her head like the lamas, both men and women, in that village near Kathmandu.


Diagnosed with Malignant Cervical Cancer in February 1975, Jill refused a Hysterectomy and all Allopathic Medicine. Instead, she opted for a natural approach to Oriental Medicine, seeing significant improvement in just one month. Then, she followed up with a 6-month journey through Venezuela and Peru, consulting with shamans, living in a jungle, and hiking in the Andes.

Jill never told her family or owned this diagnosis. The cancer went into remission in August 1975. Jill’s miracle son, Aaron, put a daily focus on the reality of motherhood in 1977. Today, she is Nanny Ninja to her two grandgirls. 

In 1981, Jill trained in Barefoot Shiatsu with Shizuko Yamamoto, the Japanese woman who brought this art to the West. Mr. Bo Diddley, the rock n’ roll legend, was her first Barefoot Shiatsu client.

In the 1990’s Jill went on to treat Robin Williams and Nathan Lane while filming The Bird Cage in Miami Beach. Sarah Vaughn, Horace Grant “Chicago Bulls,” and hundreds of others also appreciated Jill’s table massage and her unique Barefoot Shiatsu massage. She is only 5’2″ and has a 9.5 shoe size. At the age of 76, she is still practicing her art of Barefoot Shiatsu.

In 1981, Jill was hired by Bo Diddley to work at his home/ranch in Hawthorne, FL. She became family to his wife Kay and his two daughters, Tammi and Terri. His encouragement to sing with and write special songs for children resulted in Jill’s ecological animated cartoon and comic book launched at the UN’s Ocean Summit in 2017, called Annie Sunbeam and Friends www.anniesunbeam.com. A comic book has been translated into ten languages as it goes around the world digitally. She is the VP and Musical Director of Animo Grande Productions, Inc. for the future animated cartoon. Since the 1970’s Jill has been writing her own healing heart music.  Listen here.

Time of Covid19: Jill has recently relocated to Burnsville, North Carolina. It was here in Burnsville, that Jill sensed her natural talent as a Medium. Subtle, yet powerful, when a troubled individual truly knows that their loved one is there for them, profound healing will happen. 

Jill is a lover of nature, hiking, preparing gorgeous food, and taking the very best care of herself. She is teaching Online Retreats to groups using Zoom. Her free detox e-book will be sent to you when you add your email information into the box on the home page.

Jill’s greatest heartfelt love is playing her guitar, writing music, and performing. She continues to be prolific while living for the past two years in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. 

Cancer And The Power of Rage, Jill’s Memoir is presently being edited with music for the audiobook and book versions
