Were You Taught:
To be a people pleasing perfectionist in order to appease God and others?
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?
There was one 'right way' to be and bad things would happen if I veered off the path?
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.

Do You Dream Of:
We are Cara + Rachael. We will be your guides.
With our Masters degrees in Soul Care and certified coaches with 17+ 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!
Happy Whole U
What Our Clients 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."
"Through HWU, I was able to reconnect with parts of me that had been pushed aside in deconstruction; while other parts felt welcomed for the first time. This course propelled me forward by light years, as opposed to slogging through this on my own. Cara+ Rachael made me feel so seen."
"I cannot express adequately how impactful the work I did with Cara and Rachael has been on my personal development. Truly they are the compassionate and wise soul guides who helped me find my own voice and the strength to use it. Happy Whole U was and still is possibly the most important thing I needed after leaving an orthodox religion."
-Trina, Winter 2022 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 was so impressed with Happy Whole U and so deeply grateful for all the work that went into creating the program. I learned so much, felt seen and accepted, and created such wonderful friendships along the way. I will use the tools I learned from the class for the rest of my life. HWU is such a special space."
"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."
"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!"

What Our Clients 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.”
