I’m Melanie Childers, a Martha Beck Certified life coach, yoga teacher, intuitive tarot reader, instructional designer, way finder, writer, light worker, magazine publisher, and spiritual badass.
I call my coaching practice The Enlightened Badass, as a way to merge my two natures – the strong, unflinching badass, willing to wade in the muck of life, with the inner flower child who is fully connected to nature, love, and Spirit.
My definitions for those words are:
Enlightened: Aware of and connected to Source energy through nature, intuition, and Spirit
Badass: Owning and rocking everything you are, even when life kicks you while you’re down
I’m deeply passionate about providing breast cancer patients and survivors new ways to heal from traumatic events, in a nurturing, supportive, loving space. I help women find peace in the chaos of diagnosis, and clarity in moving forward after it’s all ‘over.’ I also teach them to make peace with and love their bodies again!
Find peace after chaos. Love after pain. Resilience after PTSD.
I’m here to help you tackle the difficult emotions of sadness, anger, shame, frustration, loneliness, and despair, and help you move forward into compassion and love for yourself, your experience, and your body.
Are you ready? I’ll be holding your hand the whole way.
The best part about working with Melanie is that she’s warm, kind, funny, strong, and ridiculously smart. She’s dealt with a lot of hard things and has come out an even better person on the other side, so it reminds me that there’s always a way forward. We did a LOT in a few sessions; we’d have to bend the space-time continuum to accomplish more and I’m feeling extremely optimistic for the first time in several years! Everyone needs an enlightened badass on their side; I’m really glad that I reached out to mine!
