mystery school for mamas

The lēmniscāte is an ancient symbol, an archetypal pattern, an invocation of the myriad dualities of the world. Lēmniscāta, is this symbol as experienced from the female / feminine perspective. I have been taught, and believe wholeheartedly, that mothering - from being born, to menarche, to birth, from moonpause to eldership and finally becoming ancestor - is the central image/reality needed in world soul repair.


nourish mother :: nourish world

somatic earth wisdom 

You are a mama who is willing to be honest, a m(other) who knows that the female body is an original instruction, but who also knows that her self and mothering is mixed-up from generations of trauma and cultural confusion. The LĒMNISCĀTA Mystery School will support you in your healing and learning the basics of earth-based mothering.

After this major restoration phase, you will begin to feel more resilience and your whole past present and future will unfold into a new mythology, one where the ruptures are beginning to be mended, where a new story is emerging and your somatic-earth-cosmos relation
begins to become palpable.

Your work as a mother - whether giving birth, adopting a child, integrating yourself into a blended family, preparing your child for their coming of age, or mentoring your grown children and community as an elder - will be supported here.

The LĒMNISCĀTA Mystery School is about re-membering an "ancient future" that is full of humble knowing, among-ness, and personal integrity. 


restoring :: resilient :: restorying :: rhythmic

~ JOSEPHINE FAE

Nothing I’ve tried has come close to the kind of immediate, deep affect that working with Krista has provided. Her methods are so gentle and intuitive that it’s hard to believe the powerful results. If you’ve tried all the healthy living fads, diet programs, all the different therapies, alternative and conventional, and are still feeling stuck, please set up an appointment with Krista, and get ready for a breakthrough!

GET READY FOR A BREAKTHROUGH

~ CHELSEA ACKERMAN

I found Krista’s work to provide the most rapid and dramatic healing I’ve ever experienced. Her work really mends the body-wisdom gap we all experience by living in this distorted disconnected culture. It helps release historical trauma without having to talk it out in therapy hour after hour after hour. Krista is compassionate, connected, and present. 

MOST RAPID AND DRAMATIC HEALING . . . EVER

~ JENNY RAE WALTER

I had an incredible session with Krista. I was able to pin point the family patterns that have contributed to letting the ball drop in my work life, where I could pull support from my ancestral line and make peace with this recurring issue. I felt complete acceptance and non-judgement. Krista is and intuitive, caring and attentive guide. She has a way of engaging me in the session and adding just the right insights, words and spaces to lead to a breakthrough. I will be back for topics that feel too big, deep and difficult to move through on my own.

COMPLETE ACCEPTANCE AND NON-JUDGEMENT

~ ANN DORN SEREGOW

I’ve experienced deep and beautiful changes in just a few sessions working with Krista. Her intuitive and heart-centered approach is gentle and genuine, guided by a belief in the wisdom that the body never lies. Krista brought her kind spirit, vast knowledge and desire to grow personally to every meeting, guiding me gently and capably. She truly is a “wise woman of the tribe,” a healer who is part of the community she serves.

DEEP AND BEAUTIFUL CHANGES

~ LISELLE VETSCH

Krista held a beautiful space for me. A space free of anyone’s judgments, fears or preconceptions… except my own. In holding that space she gave me the opportunity and gentle guidance to look at these and walk through them. I came out on the other side feeling more committed and surrendered. The work we did was simpler than I expected, but profound in it’s simplicity. I experienced the complete solidification of trust in my own intuition, my ability to make it through anything, and renewed faith that, whatever the outcome, my baby was meant to be born in this way (breech).

. . . A BEAUTIFUL SPACE

~ ABRA ANN STOLTE

I liked the actual feeling of healing in my body. It was immediate and apparent and intense. The three biggest benefits have been the reassurance and awareness that I am where I need to be, a great feeling of calm and relaxation, and feeling ready to finally leave behind debilitating patterns and stories that no longer serve me. Krista is truly amazing.

IMMEDIATE AND APPARENT AND INTENSE

~ LUCINDA BOWMAN

I’ve experienced deep and beautiful changes in just a few sessions working with Krista. Her intuitive and heart-centered approach is gentle and genuine, guided by a belief in the wisdom that the body never lies. Krista brought her kind spirit, vast knowledge and desire to grow personally to every meeting, guiding me gently and capably. She truly is a “wise woman of the tribe,” a healer who is part of the community she serves.

WARM COMPASSIONATE AND HUMAN

~ KAMEE ABRAHAMIAN

Myth mending is a profound way to heal personal and cultural patterns we are stuck in because of trauma. Through Krista's work, I am finding new ways to engage with (or not engage with) toxic patterns and learning how to trust the movements that my body organically makes to do “the thing” without having to rely on my head/words. I have considered seeing a regular therapist in the past, but don’t feel I have the capacity to make them understand my issues in a way that doesn’t make me feel even more messed up. If you are sick of western psychological pathologizing you and telling you how to think and feel and heal, go to Krista. She is: Clear. Complex. Tender. I trust Krista wholeheartedly.

CLEAR. COMPLEX. TENDER

~ TAMI BRUNK

In just one Myth Mending session Krista identified the core struggle I was facing at a somatic level, and used very simple and powerful tools to get me in my body actively shifting the dynamic that I'd been trapped in for so long. The impact of that has remained with me long after my session with Krista. Krista's work gets down to the bones of the issue and works it through in a primal way, at the root. I loved her ability to hone in through the complexity of issues I brought forward, down to the core of what I needed to heal. Krista is Gentle, Powerful, Wise. She is deeply intuitive and can see what is hidden, to support you in mending fragmented aspects of your being and support your shift toward empowerment! 

POWERFUL

~ FRANCA HAESLER

Myth Mending enabled me to connect inner emotional dis-ease and turmoil with embodied practice and return to modes of release and expression. It is unique. Rather than just talking through my inner state, I was able to go into a deeper place, explore and see what came out and how. I discovered aspects of myself that I hadn’t been aware of before and I was able to heal. Krista is personal, strong and nurturing. Her presence is incredibly stabilizing and supportive which over time allowed for a true discovery, release, and understanding.

DISCOVERY, RELEASE, AND UNDERSTANDING

~ MARTHA LETESSIER

The Lazy-Lady Living coursework delved deeper than I expected and gave me an extra push in deepening my spiritual practice. I go back to things like Sacred Slaughter, dealing with death and permaculture in general. If you join the program, you’re in for a delicious treat. I am humbled by the generosity and wealth of information that Krista shares.

DEEPENING MY SPIRITUAL PRACTICE

~ DYANNA GORDON 

Being able to talk to someone who really understood the struggles that come as you move through the midwifery journey was extremely helpful. Also having someone who was unbiased and non judgmental regarding experience etc. was heart warming. I was surprised with how much trauma I still had stored and how it was affecting me moving on in my practice. I have been able to clarify where I stand. Krista was wonderful to work with. Unjudgemental, flexible and supportive. She didn’t rush the process allowing plenty of time for me to move through my emotions and thoughts but also made sure that our time together was well worth our while and resources. It was a great experience.

CRUCIAL TO MY DEVELOPMENT

~ MARIANNE GOTZ

Before I started working with Krista, I was afraid to have to dig deep and struggle. Now I know that dealing with trauma doesn’t have to be difficult. Krista’s Soft Animal / Myth Mending process has gone past my brain right into the cells of my body, the animal within, and only pure honest discoveries have come forth. I loved the sacredness of working with Krista, the idea that our ancestors are involved, the wholeness – involving our mind, body, spirit and beyond – right down to items for the altar. If you are open to learning a unique way to deal with trauma and become more resilient for future ones, work with Krista!

MIND, BODY, SPIRIT AND BEYOND

~ JULIE SHIPRACK

Lazy-Lady Living has taught me that the type of human being I am will greatly inform how and why I sow seeds and grow plants/vegetables/herbs. All that matters is that I start to make small, meaningful changes daily. LLL has helped me to approach challenges and struggles in a fresh way, with curiosity and passion to find creative solutions. The material is so deep that I think one could spend a lifetime contemplating and there would still be more to learn. Lazy-Lady Living reveals how preciously intertwined we all are. When one can really feel how interconnected one is to the rest of the world, it becomes easier to make choices that will benefit the Whole.

REVEALS HOW PRECIOUSLY INTERTWINED WE ALL ARE

~  AILEEN PETERSON

Lazy Lady Living surpassed my expectations. I was blown away by the amount of content as well as the depth of the topics that we covered. Lazy Lady Living is a very well-rounded program that touches base on a lot of things that I feel a typical permaculture program may not. My biggest benefits from the course are knowledge of nature-based ‘gardening’ for optimal output with less effort while being better for the environment, your health, knowledge of home-death, and the concept of the gift-economy and practicing without licensure.


BLOWN AWAY . . .

~ ANN MICHAEL

I loved Lazy-Lady Living. It presented me with new and profound ideas that I had not thought of before. The class was so much more than about agriculture, permaculture and biodynamics. It was about life and death, celebration, working with sorrow, grief, and conflict. Lazy-Lady Living helped me fill in gaps and deepen understandings. Overall, I have a renewed appreciation for the life force/Universe that guides us all, and a deeper trust in myself and my own inner wisdom. Krista brings herself into her work in a way that is genuine and comforting, while still being a strong and effective guide. I am so deeply grateful for the chance to rewrite many of my life’s most challenging stories as time progresses. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you! 

NEW AND PROFOUND IDEAS

~ BECKA MUNN

I liked everything about Lazy Lady Living. I will have to immerse myself in living it to completely understand all aspects. Lazy Lady Living has changed my perception immensely. I am now more determined to find land, no matter how small, and more determined to fully live this lifestyle. I am also more focused to delve deeper with this information and incorporate it into all aspects of my life. Lazy Lady Living provides a wealth of knowledge that is delivered in an awesome format – plus, it can be taken anywhere, anytime, and applied to any situation. Awesome work Krista!

CHANGED MY PERCEPTION IMMENSELY

~ ANGELICA RUSHTON

I LOVE Lazy-Ladies & Lads! Krista and her family are living examples of what she teaches. It shows in all her classes and that inspires me. I immediately felt like part of something bigger. LLL gave me so much interesting and useful information to apply to my life; It has changed my family’s lifestyle and I feel awakened to something great! LLL gave me hope - there are people who are actually doing what I want to do and are willing to share it. I recommend LLL because it is jammed packed with a wealth of information to guide you on a journey of a healthy lifestyle. I couldn’t ask for more!

AWAKENED TO SOMETHING GREAT

~ JURGEN HAITSMA

My favorite part of Lazy-Lady Living was the exposure to such a wide range of topics, and the selected deeper learning of certain aspects and the integration of all the various topics into a way of living. I received thorough deepening of knowledge, more exposure to research / resources in several fields (trauma, initiation, permaculture) and practical and fuller integration of theory into everyday life. I also saw how well an online course can be facilitated and the potential for using this as a credible means to deliver knowledge. LLL is the only course I know about that covers the more cultural aspects of permaculture in depth. I also appreciated the connection with Weston A Price principles – an often overlooked “why” of permaculture. It pushes the boundaries with spiritual aspects – something that makes people uncomfortable but should be an accepted part of everyday life.
THANK YOU!

PUSHES THE BOUNDARIES

~ GAEL MINON

The topics in Lazy-Lady Living were great and really added to my understanding of “lazy living”. The videos were very insightful. They are concise and cover the essential learning points. Also they are rather informal as so they feel more like a chat/coaching rather than formalized training. I work for a large corporation and I was looking for the kind of guidance, vision and inspiration that would allow me to take a step further towards a more sensible way of life and I got it. The biggest benefits of the course for me were: a deeper understanding of the spiritual side of farming (Rudolf Steiner and the trauma concepts), a grasp of permaculture and biodynamic agriculture, and aim to apply it to my (small) backyard garden, and an awareness of life cycles (birth and death, green burials). It is quite far ahead of the general public. I’ll need lots of time to digest and assimilate this course!

PUSHES THE BOUNDARIES

~ MARY KINGSLEY

Lazy-Lady Living exposed me to so many resources and so much material, very content rich! Before I enrolled, I just knew I was drawn to it. It tapped into that longing for connection to the source of everything, which is so prevalent now. We can see everywhere on Instagram and Pinterest that women, in particular (but not exclusively), are searching for it — the rise of the Sacred Feminine! I just think this longing, and need, is growing in our culture. I really benefited from all the content, and also the affirmation from being a part of a larger community. I recommend Lazy-Lady Living to friends and colleagues because it gives a real experience of what permaculture is all about.

LONGING FOR CONNECTION
