Get Unstuck. Have More Energy. Gain Clarity.
EMOTIONAL LEADERSHIP ACADEMY
A 6-Week Virtual Intensive
to UnStuck, UnF*ck, UnNumb
Yourself and Get More Energy
WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE TO BE OK WITH YOUR EMOTIONS?
When you don’t create space, or give yourself permission to express your emotions, they get stuck.
They can get stuck in your physical, mental, emotional, and energetic bodies.
Stuck emotion is what leads to dis-ease---which can create disease in your body and in your mind. People have allowed trapped emotions to create auto-immune deficiencies, heart disease,
and even cancer. In fact, suppressed emotions have contributed to the staggering statistic
of almost 20% of North Americans battling with mental health issues.
Imagine a world where you’re free to release your emotions. In that world, you would know that just because you feel sad doesn’t mean you have to stay stuck in the sadness. You wouldn’t judge yourself for having emotions in front of others. You’d wake up feeling energized, alive, with a positive relationship to your emotions. You’d know that it’s OK to feel complete JOY and HEARTBREAK at the same time. From this place of emotional wellbeing, others in your life would feel free to experience their emotions and you wouldn’t feel the need to try and fix them or control the situation. Can you imagine if in a year from now your emotions of Sadness, Anger & Joy were your best friend?
Truly, what would your life look like if you were more connected & comfortable with your emotions?
WHAT IS THE EMOTIONAL LEADERSHIP ACADEMY?
The Emotional Leadership Academy is a 6-week virtual course for those curious about their relationship with their emotions.
This course is right for you if:
You’ve been and are looking for additional tools and support to aid you in your emotional agility, resilience, and overall wellness.
You want to be able to “feel,” feel alive, and move through life more fully self-expressed.
You haven’t been able to connect to your emotions in a healthy and responsible way.
This is not therapy, but it can work as either a complement or supplement to other programs and therapies. It’s called 'Emotional Leadership' because everyone is born a Leader. Having a healthy and deep connection with emotions is an important part of leading a fully-expressed, fulfilled life.
The course is open to a limited number of participants who will create a supportive community. The group will work together to help each member become a master of their own path to emotional agility and wellness. The content and learning experience uses an array of methodologies and philosophies including; Leadership Development & Coaching, Spiritual Psychology, NLP, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy & Kundalini Yoga & Meditation. Experts in the field of Embodiment and Somatic Healing will also contribute to your learning journey.
What to Expect:
New Outlook. Let go of limiting beliefs and “head trash” around your emotions, get more connected and comfortable with the primary emotions of sadness, anger & joy.
Specialist Guidance. Get support from a dedicated team and subject matter experts who have lived and curated the curriculum and will lead you through the experience.
Community Support. Build a community and council of new peers who share similar values, understand what you want to achieve and can help you work towards it.
Resources & Convenience. Access extensive resources in an easily digestible format that goes way beyond the 6-week course. The course is entirely online and available to you for a year after end of the course.
I met Christie last year at In Goop Health LA 2018, and instantly, I knew I would love her. As a professional in health and wellness, I seek to know dedicated female providers who bring their whole self to their work. I found that in Christie. She uses the full power of her heart and brain to help her clients find the deeper parts of herself to exceed limitations and to break through to her highest good. I loved my time with Christie and learned a lot about myself from her. I hope you do, too!

You'll be invited to join a community hosted on a private Facebook group so we can know each other better, and build a community that will extend beyond the 6 weeks.

Balance Begins Here
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL LEARN WEEK-BY-WEEK
WEEK ONE: Setting the Stage, Introducing Breath-work, Building your Personal Roadmap & Toolkit
We’ll establish how we’ll work together over the course of the 6-weeks and create a safe and powerful space for our learning. We’ll also explore the following, to set the stage of the learning journey:
What are Emotions?
What is our culture's relationship with Emotions? What is the impact of that relationship?
What is your own relationship with Emotions?
How does that relationship impact you, your physical & mental health and your relationship to others?
What do we mean by Emotional Leadership?
What’s your vision for your emotional health? How do you want your relationship with your emotions to be? And what are the specific desired outcomes you want from this experience?
We’ll Introduce Kundalini Yoga & Meditation. Learn how to use it practically to further your emotional leadership, manage energy, balance moods, reduce anxiety and depression. Introduce breath work and learn why breathing properly can be one of the most powerful tools and how to use it to manage your emotional states. Go deep on understanding how a meditation practice supports emotional leadership, and how to use meditation to re-pattern the brain.
WEEK TWO: Sadness & You
We’ll dive into Sadness, exploring this emotion’s scientific & evolutionary purpose. We’ll look at the impact that suppressed Sadness can have on us physically and mentally. You’ll walk away with a greater awareness of your beliefs (self-limiting & affirming) around this emotion. You’ll also leave with a tool/practice that will allow you to be in a better relationship with your own Sadness.
WEEK THREE: Anger & You
The emotion of Anger gets a really bad rap in our culture, we’ll take a deeper look at this while exploring Anger’s scientific & evolutionary purpose. We’ll look at the impact that suppressed Anger can have on our health. You’ll walk away with a greater awareness of your beliefs (self-limiting & affirming) around this emotion. You’ll also leave with a tool/practice that will allow you to be in a better relationship with your own Anger.
WEEK FOUR: Joy & You
We often don’t consider our relationship to an emotion like Joy and for many of us, we are unconscious to the fact that we may not be allowing ourselves to fully experience En-JOY-MENT! We’ll get more familiar with Joy, exploring its scientific & evolutionary purpose and the impact that suppressing it can have on our physical and mental health. You’ll walk away with a greater awareness of your beliefs (self-limiting & affirming) around this emotion. You’ll also leave with a tool/practice that will allow you to be in a better relationship with your own Joy.
WEEK FIVE: Deepening Your Tool-Kit with Embodiment & Somatic Experts Guidance
We’ll be joined by sought-after experts in the fields of Embodiment and Somatic therapies and learn more about how the mind-body-connection, sound movement, constitutional embodiment, and integrative wellness is connected to our emotions. In this session, we’ll be moving our bodies and we’ll really work to listen more deeply to our emotional body.
WEEK SIX. Finalizing your Emotional Leadership Plan & Completion
Over the past 5 sessions you’ve increased your awareness and gained greater agility around your emotional leadership. This is where the ‘rubber hits the road’. You’ll be guided through the design of a personalized action plan that will support you to continue to improve your relationship with your own emotions and improve your overall emotional wellness. The actions created will also support you to put into practice what you’ve learned in this first Intensive and get you ready for Intensive 2. We will also consciously ‘complete’ this learning journey together.

Her mission to help others have a more resilient relationship with their emotions is fueld by the hardships she faced when she herself was not fully expressing her emotions, but was rather remaining numb. At 13 years old Christie's life suddenly and dramatically shifted when situations revolving around her parents caused her to suffer some devastating losses and she was thrust into a leadership position, which subsequently, impacted her relationship to her own emotional growth. She has spent over 15 years working on her own corrective path and because of this, she has a sincere desire to encourage others to have a healthier relationship with their emotions.
Her best-selling emotional wellness children's book series, The Adventures of LIl’ Sass follows the adventures of Lil' Sass: a character who teaches the importance and value of being with our own emotions and shows us how much JOY we can experience when we allow ourselves to be fully self-expressed.

Chrissy is the calm among the chaos. As a special needs mom, she struggled with carving a career path that utilized her passions and skills while working well with the extra responsibilities required of her. After accidentally ending up in the global spotlight for her unique identical twins, she was forced to build a brand on the fly and discover a way to share her story while maintaining privacy. By combining her formal education in Mass Communications & Journalism with the real world knowledge she gained while using her story to shape her career, she developed a roadmap to help others pull together branding, messaging and publicity to clearly communicate their message, increase their reach efficiently and reduce the chaos experienced in the journey of being known.
