Hello, beloved one.

Want to change the world without burning out?
You’ve come to the right place.

I’m Christy Tending, a self-care mentor for rebellious humans and the creator of this website.

That means I help people create rock-solid self-care, so they can do their important work in the world more effectively and with more joy, so we can all get free together.

My formal training is in creative writing and as a yoga teacher, massage therapist, and energy worker. (I’ve also got almost 20 years of activism under my belt. So I know both sides of burnout and healing.) Now? I guide thousands of rebellious humans in creating amazing self-care in their lives.

Welcome. I’m so glad you’re here.
