Become Unapologetically Awesome. Kristen’s Tools for Transformation
Want to change the world your experience? Let’s start with you.
Tools for Transformation
My Tools for Transformation allow you to discover what being truly Present in your life feels like. In my Group Mentorship and One-on-One Coaching Programs, I actively challenge you to redefine yourself, and give you real tools to strip away the old definitions that no longer serve you. I train you to bring discipline into awareness & help you feel how passion creates a life filled with what truly matters to you and to your community. Transform the being that you were into one who feels Unapologetically Awesome.
“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of High Intentions, Sincere Effort and Intelligent Execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives — choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”
I was trained in the old school of Yogic and Shamanic traditions. The Guru or Shaman, taught each student individually. The Teacher must know the apprentice inside and out. This was the pact between Student and Teacher, “I will learn from you and do my best, if you will dedicate yourself to teaching me.” It was a solemn agreement, and never done lightly. Dedicated focus, commitment and trust leads to wisdom. Its how the Apprentice learns how to continue on to become the new Master.
What each person needs differs according to many factors. There is no one way to anything – success, happiness or well being. Each road is unique on the journey of Purpose & Enlightenment. Which is why I take the time to work with you personally, to get to know deeply what will assist YOU the most in your journey forward. As I remind all of my students, this is YOUR class, not mine. I teach you how to find PRESENCE. Holding space as your teacher, I give you the best tools possible for you to see yourself and to fall in love with the life you are here to live.Without this awareness and dedication, you will simply go from one technique to the next, with little awareness of how it applies in your life.
I take my role as your Teacher very seriously, with great honor and care. I teach you how to Keep UP and never give up. I remind you of what really matters and how amazing you feel when you are in your alignment. I teach you to BE Present now.
I met Kristen when I randomly took her yoga class. From that first interaction my life has changed, I left crying that day with the realization that there is so much healing to be done and that Kristen is gonna help me. Fast forward two years, I am religiously taking her classes twice a week and just completed her "Planning for Success" book and meetings, and I can honestly say I am feeling great. Through her program, classes and guidance, I now have tools to get through anything that comes my way. I have learned how to breathe and focus. I have learned how to get through stressful issues and how to prevent anxiety from taking over, allowing myself to move forward and be a better me so that I can be a better mother to my children and a better person to those around me. By reading the daily affirmations and meditating like she has taught me, I am able to now do this on my own, even though I know she will always be there to help. I am grateful to have these tools and this book to refer to for extra support in my life.
Kristen was recommended to me by a friend, to be doula for the birth of my second son, after a fairly traumatic experience with my first son's birth. Not only did Kristen help to transform my birth experience, she has transformed my life, with her magical blend of hypnosis, Reiki, inspiration and guidance. She helped me reveal to myself my own powerful healing abilities, and has opened up new and exciting possibilities for my life and work. Even though the circumstances of my day-to-day life have not changed dramatically (still have work, kids, husband, etc.), the way I go through it all is radically different-- with more confidence, grace, gratitude, hope, and love. Kristen has a beautiful, sacred circle that she has created all around her, and I am so honored to be a part of it, and to bring that amazing energy to the next steps in my own journey. Lots of love to you!
To put words to my experience working with Kristen, is like trying to find words to describe your most profound spiritual experience. Because that's what working with her has been and continues to be: one of the most profound spiritual experiences of my life. These days "healer" and "shaman" are words we hear often. But to find a true healer- one who can lead you across the most treacherous threshold with grace and strength- is as rare and precious as encountering soulmate love. That is who Kristen is, a true healer of the greatest magnitude. I've been able to share things with Kristen I was too ashamed to reveal to anyone. Her compassion, wisdom, and support demolishes shame and reveals the gem of growth and transformation available in the most harrowing times. Being in her presence is nourishing and inspirational, and with the depth and breadth of tools she brings to the table, there is no limit to what is possible. I've also had the unique privilege of serving alongside Kristen as a birth doula. Over my 7 year practice, I've found that birth reveals the truth of who we are. There is nowhere to hide in the labor room. When Kristen stepped in, the whole room shifted. The mother, who had been having a hard time, was instantly calmed by Kristen's soothing and reassuring energy. Not only did Kristen nurture the laboring woman, she supported everyone in the room- the father, the grandmother, the nursing staff. I was supposed to be there for Kristen, but when she noticed I was tired, she gave me an exquisite neck massage. That one example (and I have many like it) says everything about the kind of person Kristen is.
I met Kristen through her yoga classes and immediately knew she was an exceptional human being. So when I saw she was offering Reiki training I jumped at the opportunity to train with her. 3 Reiki trainings, 2 yoga teacher trainings (200RYT and RPYT), reiki/hypnosis sessions, and 1 year later, and I can confidently say that Kristen's trainings have transformed me. Her trainings invited me to find deeper meaning in my life, allowing me to become a better and more fulfilled human being in every possible way. I could not recommend Kristen enough. Her teachings are incredibly informative, empowering, and authentic. She has a way about her that no other teacher/mentor can match - she is a true inspiration. We are blessed to have Kristen in our world!
Shortly after I met Kristen, I learned her philosophy as a teacher was to Prod, Poke, Inspire and Elevate her students! And I can say she has accomplished that with me. My introduction to Kristen was through a Kundalini Yoga course. Her knowledge of yoga, chakras, breath energy, etc. was impressive. But what really got to me was her love, dedication, and belief in her students. She inspired, in me, a craving to study more, to realize my true nature! And yes, through her array of skills as a Shaman, Reiki Master, spiritual and physical Yoga teacher, hypnotherapist and more, she has prodded and poked me to move on from my self-imposed limitations to see that I really can achieve my goals. I have had other teachers but never have I been so kindly and effectively pushed along on the Path. Changes that I have seen by following her guidance have helped me to accept my humanity, to be less upset over my mistakes or those of others, not to fear new challenges, willingness to assert my truths with others, confidence that my directions are unfolding properly (even if I cannot see the final outcome) and more joy in all life experiences. With Kristen, I feel I have not only found a great teacher but also a very supportive confidant. She is that close with all her students! Awesome teacher, incredible guide and mentor, wonderful friend! Namaste Kristen!
