The Team.

Courtney Hanson


Hey soul sister! I’m Courtney – best selling author, podcast host, yoga instructor, reiki master, hypnotherapist, trauma-somatics healer and inspirational speaker. I help women remember their souls purpose and return home in their bodies. I am a wife, mother of three, fur mom to three and successful entrepreneur. My journey through life is the framework that has led me to serve others. I was homeless on food stamps, and a closet alcoholic who tried to take my own life due to trauma. I haven’t just overcome darkness, trauma, anxiety and depression – but I have used these pains as lessons and stepping stones to mold me into the woman I am today, helping others reach their goals physically, mentally, and spiritually. Let me help you break through barriers, step into your purpose and become the Divine Goddess you were destined to be.
