Were You Taught That:
There was one 'right way' to be and bad things would happen if I veered off the path?
Taking care of others, even at my own expense, was the most "loving" thing to do?
I could never trust myself fully because my heart and desires were sinful?
By being the "good girl" I could meet the standard of perfection put on me?
This is your religious programming.
Though you're questioning (or have left your faith), that deep programming is STILL unconsciously running your life.
And It's Left You:
The aftermath of high demand religion leaves you feeling like you are still broken. Your old religious programming is causing you to spend countless hours on a hunt to find the one thing that needs to be "fixed" in order to be healed.
"I wanted to express my gratitude to you both and for Happy Whole Way. The work has been (and is) so challenging but so worth it. Thank you and I love you both so much and my wish is that your work keeps reaching the edges of the world!"
-Erin, Fall 2020 + Winter 2021 HWU Student
Do You Dream Of:
We are Cara + Rachael.
We will be your guides.
With our Masters degrees in Soul Care and certified Spiritual Directors with 15+ yrs experience, we are trained to hold the space for you to develop more curiosity and gentleness on this journey.
We tried it all after we left the church many years ago. Self help fads, books, new age spirituality, diets--you name it--all with the hopes of feeling happy and whole. Nothing worked until we realized that we weren't broken after all, as our religion had conditioned us to believe. Life changed for us when we finally got off the hamster wheel of trying to "fix" ourselves.
We've helped hundreds of women get off that never ending hamster wheel of looking for a "cure," by teaching practical tools to instead learn how to care for yourself through every season of life. We've distilled years of learning from individual coaching sessions, into 10 weeks that will revolutionize your life!
Fall 2022 session is SOLD OUT!
We sold out 2 full groups on the first day of registration. We will be opening doors again in November for the Winter cohort that will run Jan-March 2023.
We also have a brand new self-led course that will be launching later this fall. Stay tuned on Instagram to find out more!
Happy Whole U
What Our Students Are Saying...
“Happy Whole U has helped me shed light on my religious conditioning. I was in limbo but now I'm learning to understand how it has helped me AND hurt me. I'm excited to explore new ways to connect with my spirituality with the tools this course has given me."
"Happy Whole U has been so helpful for me in this new journey [of faith transition]. It gave me tools to delve deep and be honest and discover who I am and who I am becoming. Rachael and Cara are north stars to me and I will always be forever grateful for their love and wisdom."
"I'm much more curious about my emotions [their triggers, origin and what they're trying to tell me]. It's been really helpful in learning how to communicate that in my marriage and in parenting. I find I have more grace for myself and no longer see myself as broken but rather just human."
"[The course content of Happy Whole U] really impacted me a ton tonight. Thank you Cara + Rachael for all your help. You two are amazing. I haven't stopped crying happy tears of relief since last night's coaching call. I'm so profoundly grateful for this class and community already."
"I truly have never felt so accepted by a group of women--always willing to give of themselves and be so accepting of me right where I am. I am proud to be a part of this course and recommend it to anyone in need!"
-Jen, Winter 2022 HWU Student
What You'll Get

We host 10 weekly LIVE group coaching sessions over Zoom giving you the chance to ask us questions directly and interact with material on a deeper level.
We use a private WhatsApp group as a means to stay connected as a group throughout the week, sharing our ah-ha moments and encouraging each other.
Throughout the 10 weeks you will have access to Cara + Rachael during small group coaching time to help you dig deeper into your personal experience.
"Ladies, my workbook arrived and I love it! Thank you. I wanted to acknowledge your art, Cara. It has always been delightful and the colors calm and focus me. I’m a big fan. [You can really tell you put your heart into this]. Thank you over and over!"
-Pam, Fall 2021 HWU Student

“This worksheet [in the HWU workbook] alone could have saved me thousands in therapy bills, but I think the right help also comes at the right time!"
-Mandy, Fall 2021 HWU Student
"Personally I will keep this workbook forever, it feels like a gift. The art and illustrations draw you in, inspires and nurtures you. There is something really soothing and supportive about the way the material is presented in the workbook."
-Jan, Fall 2020 HWU Student
Small Group Coaching
This journey can feel very lonely at times, but we have found in our previous courses that having a group of like-minded (identifying-as) women coming out of a diverse range of religious traditions to learn with and from is invaluable!
Plus you will have weekly access to us (Cara + Rachael) during group calls to get personalized coaching in real time as you are going through the material. We both hold Masters Degrees and are certified in Individual and Group Spiritual Direction. This alone is worth $2000 based on our hourly rate!
"I’ve only done a few weeks [of the course], and I’m already noticing how much more gentle and kind I am to myself and how I've been nurturing my inner child. I’m really grateful for you, Cara + Rachael. Thank you so much!"
-Vanessa, Fall 2021 HWU Student
"It’s been incredible feeling empowered to look within to give myself what I need rather than completely helpless and hostage to the anxiety. This is all because of everything I've learned so far in HWU. Cara and Rachael, I can’t thank you enough for creating this space”
“I am crying, you just rocked my world! I have a lot to sit with now and think about. I don’t know what it is about this class, but I can never go to sleep after. I always lay in bed thinking about everything and feeling full of energy. It really is life-changing.”
"My mind is being blown left and right by all these connections being made here. I want my masters in Happy Whole U! Anything to be with you all again. Cara + Rachael, this program is just amazing, and your big hearts are perfect for what you are doing.”
"I'm so grateful for all of you! This has already been a powerful learning and growth experience for me, and we’re only a couple weeks in! So glad we’re all together this fall. Thank you Cara & Rachael for leading us and for bringing this community together."

Commit to 10 Weeks of Transformation
Change doesn't happen overnight, it is a process to be nurtured. Commit to diving deep into your religious recovery every Monday this winter. We start January 9, 2023 and will run through March 13, 2023. During our 10 weeks together you will reset the way you relate to yourself.
Participating in Small Group Coaching via ZOOM
Choose a weekly coaching session that works for you (tentative times are: 10am, 5pm, or 6:30pm PT). These sessions will help you integrate the material as well as form deep connections with like-minded women. Class size will be limited to 12 women (guaranteeing individualized attention).
Listening on Your Own
You have the freedom to watch the weekly teaching videos at your leisure. We will post them one week in advance to give you plenty of time to soak them up and complete the corresponding exercises in the workbook before our coaching calls.
Completing "Soul Alignments"
We will mail you a companion workbook FULL of 150+ pages of illustrations, prompts, and practical exercises that can very easily be incorporated into your everyday life. Most students spend 1-2 hours/week interacting with the material.
What Our Students Are Saying...
This course put everything I had been working on for the past several years in one place. But this time, it wasn’t about more doing and fixing, it was about more knowing and loving. HWU is the kind of course and connections you just don’t want to end!
-Fall 2020 + Winter 2021
“I listen to my body SO much more and respect what it has to say instead of fighting it or trying to change it. I am still learning to trust myself, but I’ve seen a major improvement in trusting who I am and what is inside me.”
"Happy Whole U taught me how to give voice to my shadows. I learned to listen deeply and see what else I was hiding. I love being in a community of women who gather for the same goal. It’s such a safe space to explore what’s there.”
"I’ve spent the last decade investing in therapy, classes, and books, looking for the right 'key' to get healthy and healing in each season of life. But HWU gave me the tools to be my own healer. I learned how to put into action these healing practices.”
How Much Does Happy Whole U Cost?
