Welcome! I'm so glad you are here. Growing Wings is designed to help you learn to nurture yourself, wherever you're coming from. There are no pre-requisites and you'll be supported one-to-one along your journey. This is a heartfelt immersion into self-love. You're worth it!

In Growing Wings you will spend 10 weeks immersed in a 3-step training program:

  • Grounding in mindfulness;
  • Tuning into the wisdom of your own soul and core values;
  • Collecting and embodying skills of self-compassion.

Each week you will learn new concepts and incorporate new practices into your toolkit of emotional resilience through:

  • Videos;
  • Articles;
  • Worksheets;
  • Journaling suggestions;
  • Exercises;
  • Meditations;
  • Practices;
  • Weekly get-together with Kristy;
  • Unlimited email support from Kristy.

At the end of 10 weeks you will have a full repertoire of tools to take care of yourself with mindfulness, self-wisdom and self-compassion. You'll know how to:

  • Ground yourself with mindfulness when your external or internal environment starts to get overwhelming;
  • See your core values and soul's purpose clearly so that you can commit firmly to your goals for your own wellbeing and your whole life;
  • Understand why you experience anger, shame, inner criticism and unclear boundaries, and how to navigate more skillfully in your emotional landscape to develop a kinder and wiser relationship with yourself.

Please sign up for a free introductory chat with Kristy before enrolling in this program to make sure this is the right program for you.

Please note that while the Frequently Asked Questions below say that this is a self-paced course, it has the added value of a one-to-one get-together with Kristy each week.
