Inside: Our real, messy lives will be “never enough” until we embrace imperfection and accept that we are not in control of it all. I opened up my inbox as I often do in the morning to sift through interesting articles and ideas, share some online, and save a seed or two of thought for a later date. This morning it struck me as funny – in a sort of unfriendly, depressing way – that my intentionally curated inbox, brimming with interesting stats, science, and personal opinion for how to […]

Inside: Questioning our unhelpful stories – the myths that present in the form of false notions or mistaken beliefs – helps us find our way to “enough”. This is a guest post from Heidi Barr. Here the forest floor has a carpet of hepatica, trillium, bloodroot, dutchman’s breeches, and bellwort, a tangle of white, purple, yellow and green as spring blooms open with the season. Adolescent skunk cabbage and uncurling ferns cast a tint of green as far as the eye can see, everything reaching toward the sun’s nourishment. Walking […]
Inside: If I could bottle up just one gift for you this year, it would be that of learning to walk in self-compassion. Here’s why. If I could give you one gift this year, it would be that of self-compassion. Self-compassion is fundamental to living with purpose, health, and joy, and for sustainable and meaningful growth.

Krista’s CALM workshop has provided me with the tools and guidelines I need to get started in my mission to bring more focus and intention into my daily life. She shares her wealth of knowledge regarding the benefits of supplements that can help when dealing with different health issues, which I found very informative and helpful. I especially appreciated her suggestions on how to recognize the joy in our lives and how to let go of the things or ideas that are not a part of that joy.
Krista’s honesty and openness about her own life and experiences really made me feel comfortable in the group setting. I believe that she is an extremely knowledgeable and accepting person whose support would benefit anyone interested in living a more physically and emotionally, balanced healthy life. The CALM workshop is a great starting point for those of us who want to live a more thoughtful, healthy, joy-filled life.

I was stuck and spinning my wheels repeating the same patterns over and over in my life. Krista’s blog (A Life in Progress) really began to speak to my heart about my issues, but the real work change began when I started meeting one on one with her. Her helpful advice and practical steps with accountability are helping me change and experience hope and victory! I am so glad I made that first appointment:)

The CALM course was great exposure to many alternative methods I can incorporate into my daily routines to create clarity, calm and joy. I especially enjoyed the suggestions for supplements and nutrition. I also appreciated the anecdotal portions that allowed me to relate to the material. Krista has such a nurturing spirit that was much appreciated.
