I’m Sara, an acclaimed author, thought leader, keynote speaker, trauma and life coach, wilderness guide,  and an executive producer of a documentary in production.

I’m also a single mom of three sons, an adventurer at heart, and a survivor of multiple traumas. My business and dedication to others’ transformation began after finding my own healing in nature.

Three words have led me to where I am today: Truth. Inspiration. Hope.

Please scroll through this site to find resources and helpful information … reach out and let me know how I can be your guide. No one should feel alone in this world.

I am honored to have you here.



Sara Schulting Kranz wearing the Be Kind Humankind 7 Stones of Forgiveness Bracelet

I have partnered with Be Kind Humankind to launch the 7 Stones of Forgiveness Bracelet. I believe that everyone has the capacity to heal and forgive and that the world needs forgiveness now more than ever.

Together we really do make a difference. Be Kind Humankind empowers the village of Kampala, Uganda by offering sustainable work for women and providing a safe educational environment to children.

Forgiveness begins in your own heart, and together we can create a wave of kindness!

Use the gemstones to guide you in meditation. Run your finger along the stones, stopping in affirmation at each aquamarine gem as you follow the provided guided steps. Breathe in and connect with nature, your heart, and divine love.

Nature mirrors Life mirrors Art (Animation) .. every time I watch this, I’m in awe. Perhaps it’s because I’ve lived through a tornado. Many earthquakes. A monsoon. Blizzards. And unreal gorgeous days. I find the force of nature absolutely exhilarating. This ever-changing world of ours is a mirror for us all. 2:17 secs: watch to the end.

Every time I’m floating alone on my stand up paddle board, miles offshore on the Pacific Ocean, I know the risk of what is happening under me. Every time I’m in the mountains, I know the earth could shift. And, this is life. We shake. We explode. We shift internally ourselves. We transform + we let loose. We can’t always anticipate when any of this will happen. What we know, yet can be hard to accept, is that change is inevitable + we were never intended to stay the same.

In our life, we experience so much happiness! And, we experience difficulties + traumas. One cannot be held without the other. This is living. Absolutely no one in this world doesn’t experience some sort of pain. The pandemic has proven that. What’s a needed reminder is that we all experience pain differentLY, in different forms + in different ways. No two humans see, experience, or process anything alike.

From Complex-PTSD or any sort of mental, emotional, or physical health, it’s important to remember that while going through whatever we are experiencing, we are not alone. We are never alone. And what’s equally important is that we don’t stuff our thoughts, emotions, pain, or our truths down. Everything will manifest to the surface, in one form or another. We either take care of what is eating us from the inside, or what’s eating us from the inside will manifest in unhealthy ways, such as through addiction, disease, unhealthy relationships, etc. 

Nature “does it thing” and cleanses in the way intended. She releases her energy + clears what is needed in order to become her new natural state of beautiful. Fires are needed for new growth + to feed the earth. Tectonic plates shift, releasing energy to change the land. Tornadoes + monsoons shift energy in the air + skies. We need to shift energy to balance our natural state of being.

(Cont’d in comments ⬇️)
Many times our frustration in life stems from not having a plan. We want something to happen, but we don’t know how to get to what we want. We want to heal. We want to grow. We want to get through our divorce. Find that job. Move. Have better relationships .. ya da ya da. We see it happen for others, but not us. Judgment creeps in.

SAVE THIS POST, COMMENT + TAG OTHERS, because I’m sharing my plan that works: ⬇️

First, work on the internal you. The personal development + healing of self. Take time every day to look in the mirror at your internal self. Do you like the look of your heart + soul? Do you like how you treat others? Do you like how you treat yourself? Do you embrace your gifts + share them in service? Are you walking what you preach? Are you aligned in your values with self? Do you PRACTICE being a good human every day? (That last one is a biggee ..)

Second, work on the external. Where do you want to be in the future? Where do you see yourself? In a relationship? Out of one? New career? Happy? Moved? If you don’t have specific answers, that’s ok. Pull it back as far as you can + keep it simple. I manifest best when I have specifics, but many times I don’t have specifics, so I keep it simple + broad. Remember: you don’t have to know everything right now! Write down what you do know + keep it somewhere that you can see it daily.

Most important: find your tribe. Network out to people that will support, love, honor your intentions, believe in your healing, your growing, and who want to hold you accountable for your happiness. Ask questions of them! Ask for help! The energy of being in community is key to progress + moving forward. We shouldn’t have to do anything in life alone! There are people everywhere who want to serve + guide others. Find humans to welcome you in. And when they do, gratefully receive their hand.

Lastly .. there are three words to live by. TRUST. SURRENDER. OPEN. Trust the Universe and what is unfolding for you. Surrender to your belief in self + worthiness. Be open with your heart to receive all of life’s magic + miracles.

PLAY in your plan, and your plan will deliver. Big.

I believe in you / us .. always!

So ..

I shared this news with a few close friends yesterday, and one of them asked, "How does it feel?"

Well, it feels a tad surreal to know the show you once went to for guidance, you are now guiding people on. In truth (always), I am excited! Thrilled. Nervous. Like, I wanna throw-up-butterflies-in-my-tummy kinda feels! I want to cry. Scream! Shout "HOLY SH#T!" And I want to hold all versions of me--from age 17 to age 48--tenderly, moment-to-moment, in gratitude for facing those fears of speaking out. Of speaking loud + not whispering what I know will continue to help so many others. I always, always share every not-always-perfect word from my heart. From my soul. With intention to be of guidance for all of you, and those you know. 

It really is true, "Your truth will set you free." 

The segments highlight everything from my own story, to the founding principles I've used in my healing journey + now share on my healing retreats. If you are interested + ready to dive deeper yourself, now is a great time to buy your book, Walk Through This: Harness the Healing Power of Nature and Travel the Road to Forgiveness, in my handle, on Amazon, or at any bookstore. 

I believe in you / us .. always. And I always, always will.

There are times when the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all. Actions + presence over words. When silence becomes your source of greatest strength. 🔥

It's an art in knowing when to use which.

Drop a 🔥 if you’ve ever kept your silence + grown stronger because of it. Focus inward. Fan your own loving flame.
