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. I help people create rock-solid self-care, so they can do their important work in the world more effectively and with more joy. What we do here is all about Real Self-Care and Sacred Focus.

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.
