About The Teacher

Hi, my name is Kyla and I'm your WITH Warrior in Chief =).

I could tell you that I graduated from Harvard where I won a prestigious teaching award. I could tell you that I gave a TED Talk. I could tell you that I was a professor for 7 years and won multiple awards for teaching. I could tell you that I have trained and inspired high-level executive clients from all over the world who work at Chevron, GSK, Marc Jacobs, Merck, Microsoft, Samsung and several startups around the globe. I could tell you that I have delivered and developed my own workshops in 16 countries across 3 continents and traveled to 49 countries thus far.

I would rather tell you that shortly after my 40th birthday, I realized that I wasn't OK. 2 years ago, my mom was diagnosed with early onset dementia and I fell into a deep depression. So I decided to go inward. I delved into personal growth work, tried almost every healing modality out there, became a certified life coach, certified happiness coach, and a certified Theta Healing® practitioner along the way.

One of my all time favorite places to do deep dives is on retreat. So I thought why not create my very own retreats to help people like me go through what I went through? So I did. After my TED Talk, I decided to launch a movement with a revolutionary communication philosophy: Instead of talking AT people (one-way) and AT ourselves, I inspire others to talk WITH people (two-way) and more importantly WITH themselves.

What an incredible healing journey it has been and continues to be!

So there you have it. I am a SpeakHER, InspireHER, and HealHER. And more!

Would love to hear your story and communicate WITH you too! Nice to meet you!

I could give you no advice but this: to go into yourself and to explore the depths where your life wells forth. Rilke
