Sara Schulting-Kranz - Live Boldly CoachingI am an Adventurer at Heart.

I am a woman who believes in Truth, Inspiration and Hope in Life.

I believe that we all have the Power within to become our Best Self and Live Life Boldly. 

“You can embrace, love and honor all sides of yourself.”

I was raised in a small, one stop light town in the Midwest. Education is a value I hold in high esteem; I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in Art Education. Though I have taught in both Missouri and Wisconsin, my home has become California, surrounded by the ocean and mountains where I feel the most peace.

After arriving in our beach side town, I gave up my career as an art teacher, put on my flip flops (which I wear all of the time) and threw myself into motherhood. I brought my small town values and sense of community to the beach side city we live in.

People often ask what prompted me to become a Professional Life and Leadership Coach and Wilderness Guide.

The catalyst in doing so was surviving the devastating news that my best friend and husband of 17-years, the person I loved and adored, was keeping secrets that betrayed me, himself, our family and the community. When this man I trusted all these years revealed to me that he was gay and holding secrets of multiple addictions, the news slammed me to the floor and made me question everything in my life. Could I survive the pain and find forgiveness? What would I like my future to look like? How would I make a new life when I felt so broken? Is it possible to still be friends with your ex? And in the end, do I really care what people think when I’m doing what’s best for my kids and family?

As if hearing and living this trauma wasn’t enough, my husband’s disclosure triggered the resurgence of trauma I had also suffered from a rape and subsequent birth of my first child at age 17. The pain was overwhelming, yet I lived daily by what my parents taught me when I was 17 years old: Place one foot in front of the other. Keep walking from a place of Integrity. You will get through this. Intuitively, I realized that I needed to move my body to combat the pain, maintain my sanity and find clarity in my life.

I dealt with this life shifting blow as I have always done. I put on my running shoes and ran for my life.

I climbed mountains and paddled the ocean to discharge the fear and anger that coursed through my veins. Nearly four years later, the healing work I did created a shift; I felt a sense of being grounded. I felt safety, clarity, and forgiveness. My own self-help foundation of strength, empowerment, healing and transformation began while moving in nature. It was time to help others do the same.

At the core of who I am lies a teacher.

I would rather share my knowledge of growth and healing for the betterment of others than anything else in the world. I realized that physically moving to discharge my pain and trauma, combined with my love of teaching, was the map I would use to guide others in a similar fashion. Upon attaining my Wilderness First Responder certification and coaching credentials, I officially began coaching others on their own journey of self-discovery.

As a motivational speaker, teacher and writer, I feel blessed and honored to share my voice.

There I can reach a wider audience, inspiring others to step into their own leadership roles. I only hope that the ripple effect of learning will continue; relationships will deepen, communication skills will be utilized and clients will become stronger as a result.

My intention is to connect with you, the client, and establish what goals need to be made in your life.

Are you ready for a shift?

Do you desire empowerment and change?

Are you longing to feel inspired, find your purpose and grow in a supportive and nurturing environment?

Utilizing effective individual and group coaching methods, I will guide you to become the person that you aspire to be. We all have just one life. Live it Boldly and become your best self … in whatever shoes you choose!

RED HEELS

I was constantly being questioned how a mom of three boys could reinvent her life at 40 years of age, guiding and coaching others in the Grand Canyon/Wilderness. At the same time, my femininity was being questioned as I was exiting a marriage where my husband is gay.

Though seen as strong, I wasn’t always seen as feminine … which stung.

At my Core, I am Pure Woman. I am also an Adventurer at Heart.

I decided that I wanted a symbol, something for me, which would show the world that a woman does not have to be put in a box. I wanted to show that we can do our nails and summit a peak on the exact same day. We can hike trails, climb boulders and still come home to put on a dress and heels. We can embrace, love and honor all sides of ourselves.

It came to me one day while running. “I will buy a pair of red stilettos and wear them on the peak of Mt. Baldy…for me.” I posted my picture on social media and the response was surreal. Through that one picture, a message was also posted to the Universe… that women CAN be Strong and Feminine.

My heels have seen Peaks throughout Yosemite, Mt. Wilson, Cucamonga Peak, Mt. Baldy, San Jacinto, San Bernardino Peak, San Gorgonio, the High Sierra Trail, Mt. Whitney … and many, many others.

Red represents courage, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. I will never stop embracing me…

Hopefully these red heels give you the courage to do the same.

What to do when the world is dealing with a COVID- What to do when the world is dealing with a COVID-19 Pandemic + you’re isolated in your home?

There’s so much confusion, misunderstanding, judgement + anger that comes with this virus. For some of us, confinement has brought anxiety, rising emotions + depression. For others, it has meant Netflix, reading + Marie Kondo’ing our homes.

Nature has always been my go-to therapy during times like this.

So what do you do when your favorite outdoors has been taken away + you’re forced inside?

Here are 7-steps I’m using to bring the outdoors —> indoors. For the complete blog post to be released Monday, sign up for my newsletter here: sara@saraschultingkranz.com .
.
1. Start each day by walking to your window. Gaze outside and look at the sky. Watch the clouds. Take notice of the birds + how they glide in the wind.
.
2. Take five minutes a day + meditate with rocks. My home is filled with stones that I have collected on some of my favorite trails. While doing your daily meditations, sit with your rocks around you + hold a special one in your hand. Connect with the feel of the stone. Use it as a reminder of that special day you had in nature. Our spirits are amazing + can be taken back to the memory you hold in your heart.
.
3. When in the shower, take a deep breath in, hold it, and release. Imagine you are standing under your favorite waterfall + let the water wash over you. Continue deep breathing. Many times I like to close my eyes + have my mind float back to my favorite waterfall in the Grand Canyon. Take yourself back to that moment in time. Smile for this gift you were given.
.
4. Walk onto your patio and sit outside. If that’s not possible, open your door or window + pull up a chair. Take a seat + place your feet on the ground. Close your eyes + place your hands over your heart. Slowly breathe in. And slowly release your breath. Smell the air around you. What scents are you picking up? Take another slow breath in … and release. Let the breeze be with you. Continue breathing and simply be present. Nature is the air that surrounds you. You (cont. in comments)
