As a Certified Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) teacher, a Consultation Host for MSC Teachers-in-Training with the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion, and the developer and teacher of many self-compassion and mindfulness courses, I know how valuable it is to have support as you leverage your gifts and strengths to support yourself and your participants in their study and practice.
Who is HeartWorks Mentoring for?
HeartWorks Mentoring online with Kristy is best suited for folks who have already done some mindfulness or self-compassion study, practice and reflection, ideally in a program with Kristy. You can see a list of Kristy’s offerings on the right side of this page. Having some foundational training and practice will help us find direction in our mentoring work.
What is it Designed to Do?
HeartWorks Mentoring is designed to support your:
- self-compassion study, practice and reflection;
- professional development in teaching and/or building a heart-centered business.
Through mentoring I can help you:
find your voice;
find your niche;
support your struggles;
support your struggling participants;
make your work trauma-informed;
find your community;
promote your business.
Together we can support your ability to tap into your values and strengths and move toward that which nurtures you and supports your work in the world.
HeartWorks Mentoring is designed to support your self-compassion practice, teaching and your heart-centered business. While some of the work we do might feel similar to therapy, Get Togethers are not designed for therapy to work on old wounds. I’ll be happy to explore which kind of therapy modality might suit you best, so that you can seek a therapist in your local area to travel on that particular journey with. You can find trauma support resources on the right side of this page.
Online Get Togethers
We can get together online once per month. Our monthly time together will be a space to explore your thoughts, emotions and sensations about your practice and work. We’ll generally:
- begin with a short arriving meditation, then
- explore the material you’re interested in working on, then
- outline next steps including resources that I’ll provide to you.
HeartWorks Mentoring Site
You’ll have access to your own personal site in the learning management system, PowerSchool Learning, that will be the home for our notes and resources, and is only accessible to you and me. Here we’ll create some structure for our work together so that we can share information in one organized place.
Email and Reflection Board
You can reach out at any time about your practice and your work via email or the Reflection Board on your Mentoring site. I will add extra resources for you to your site in response to your needs.
HeartWorks Mentoring finances revolve around our monthly Get Together. Unless we have some other arrangement I’ll send you a PayPal invoice after each Get Together.
Mentoring has a sliding scale between US$70 and US$100 for our monthly Get Together – you can choose the rate that works for you. This amount covers:
- one online Get Together,
- unlimited email support, and
- the resources that I’ll post to your site.
I’d love to travel with you on your adventures of self-discovery, emergent self-wisdom and authentic leadership. Please email me at email@example.com if you’d like to explore HeartWorks Mentoring.
