Jerry Dean is the founder of Sun Mountain Media, an organization that provides marketing solutions to clients all over the world. Dean is currently launching a charity in Aberdeen, Washington, that will operate a program designed to guide young people at risk to identify a career or life path that offers the opportunity for creative expression, financial stability and entrepreneurial pursuits. The charity will focus on the creation of a video/film production academy for those that wish to build a career in the industry or employ video/film production, or use their acquired skills for self-promotion or other entrepreneurial pursuits.
Dean was the publisher and co-owner of the Northern New Jersey edition of Natural Awakenings Magazine from November 2012 to February 2020, a cutting-edge holistic health magazine and part of a national franchise of over 70 independently-owned publications. While at the helm, Dean experienced the therapeutic benefits of numerous holistic healing modalities that played a significant part in his own recovery from childhood trauma, addiction and destructive relationship patterns.
The various energy clearing modalities, shamanic healing work and adopting a lifestyle of exercising effective self-care and maintaining rigorous honesty, led Dean to continue "peeling off the layers" and to examine his entire history and that of his maternal and paternal bloodlines. He soon identified the trauma patterning present within several generations in both ancestral lines, and learned from relatives he interviewed that his maternal grandparents both suffered major, life-changing traumas in separate incidents in Europe during World War II. This directly impacted their relationship with their three children to such an extent that the effects of their undiagnosed and untreated transgenerational war trauma remained glaringly present in their children and grandchildren.
Dean's radical transformation developed within him a highly-tuned awareness and intuition, as well as an uncanny ability to connect details to clearly understand what is truly occurring both on the surface and within the subconscious mind. He states, "When you've had enough suffering and become truly ready and motivated to change, or even completely reinvent yourself, the tools, information, people, organizations, publications, modalities, programs or methods will appear to support and guide you through your process."
