Meet Kristen Shader
I am a therapist. An artist. An adventurer. A Spiritual Guide/Teacher.
I am a witness to your worthiness, magic, and wisdom.
How do you commune with your wild and sacred heart?
As womxn, we are often taught to be quiet, keep the peace, and stay small. We are trained to forget our wild. We forget the authentic, wise Knowing that has been our birthright all along. Much of my own work in the world has been on re-wilding: trusting my intuitive wisdom and the importance of showing up with compassion to the very human and messy parts of myself. Trusting my own ability to travel solo around the world for 10 months, to leave my “safe” 9-5 job, and to embark on the work I am meant to do in this world: Supporting you in honoring your own innate wildness.
From this place, I can meet you and witness and honor the messy within you, too. Because I believe our messy is sacred. I believe that our magic and wisdom arises when we integrate and love on the parts of ourselves we hide from.
I don’t promise to have all the answers. But, I do promise to show up and hold space for all of the aching, unloved parts of you. I promise to bring resources, ideas, and perspectives that help remind you what you have known all along: That there is a grounded, sacred place of wisdom and wildness within you. That you can move through and navigate any challenge from this place of wisdom.
You deserve to be seen. You deserve to have a safe space to show up authentically. A space that is all about you, in a world that has taught you to be supportive to everyone else.
I look forward to meeting you and walking beside you on your journey.
