It’s no accident you’re here! You’ve landed in the sparkly land of Luminous Leanings because you have a deep desire to flip the script and start loving yourself with big heart-shaped eyes.

You want to send your inner critic on a much-needed vacay, and cultivate intimacy with your Higher Self – the One that guides your intuition and whispers words of wisdom in your ear.

You want to develop your self-care arsenal and create meaningful, nourishing rituals for your life. You want to step into your power, discover your inner resources, and have more energy to give to your community, your causes, and your purpose.

That’s where I come in!

I’m Ellen, a multipassionate Self-Care Coach, Meditation Guide, Writer, & Speaker! I left an international development career to move to the Southwest and pursue my passion: changing the world through self-care!

I’m also passionate about beer, nature, dancing, and vegetarian cooking… but my TRUE calling is life coaching. As a self-care coach, I partner with folks on their inward journey of courageous vulnerability. Together, we explore their self-talk habits, areas where they are experiencing or headed towards burn-out, and how to set boundaries and womanifest the life of their dreams.

I believe that, as women, we are especially socialized to disbelieve our worthiness and be ashamed of our desires. This early wounding sets us up for a lifetime of self-rejection and disconnection.

When we heal our relationship to Self, we can claim our desires fully because we know they are our birth right. If your desires are in alignment with your highest good, they are your destiny for making the world a better place! The last thing you need is an inner critic telling you you’re unworthy or incapable – the last thing the world needs is for you to burn out! You’re here for a reason, self-care like it!

The best part is – you don’t have to self-care by yourself! I’m here to hold your hand as you bravely do this work, and dance with you along the way! I’ll also give you a loving kick in the booty when you need some accountability to meet your goals. 😉 My fav thing ever is custom creating guided meditations and journal sheets for clients who are unpacking their deepest lessons.

And let’s be clear – ALL of this wisdom comes from YOU, not me! I’m really just a holder – I hold space while you learn, and then I hold you accountable to take action on your goals! (As an Aries, action is kinda my thing.)

So what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!

And while you’re here, sign up for personal updates from me and follow me on the ‘Gram (where I hang out most of the time). As a welcome gift, check out my free meditations & journal sheets. Stop by on Tuesday evenings for my Self-Love Sermons. And, if you’re ready to take the next step toward more self-love, why not book a private retreat for your crew, hire me for your next self-care workshop, or sign up for one of my coaching programs?

I can’t wait to see you fall in love with yourself!
