Hi! I'm Lauren Hunt. Thank you for coming to this site to find out more about me.
For many years I have been on a search or quest - to discover how I can best serve other people- a search for my "calling" and purpose. But it was also a search for healing. You see, I had a big hole in my heart after my older brother passed away when I was 14.
Grief led me down a dark road for a while, into substance abuse, self-hating behaviors, and unhealthy relationships. My soulful inquiry into life and how to find my joy again led me from one coast of the USA to another and through a wide range of fields of study including hatha yoga, eastern philosophy and religion, sustainable agriculture, ecology, psychology, holistic health, nutrition, early childhood teaching, nursing, meditation, laughter yoga, and most recently wellness coaching and the field of positive psychology. Through all of my studies I have learned many valuable tools for self-care, self-awareness, self-love and healthy living.
Along my journey I not only discovered many wonderful tools that have helped me to heal my life and find greater happiness, I also learned a lot about myself.
I uncovered my "super powers." And that is what my purpose is - to share these powers with you.
I discovered that I love having deep meaningful conversations with people. I have this amazing ability to LISTEN to others without judgement.
I also have a natural ENTHUSIASM for life that is quite contagious. (Can't you see it in my smile over there?)
Another super power of mine is that I have a BIG HEART that radiates compassion, empathy, love and understanding.
I have this amazing ability TO BUILD COMMUNITY by bringing people together through my workshops and events.
I also have the super power of VISION. My imagination and dream for a peaceful world, stronger communities, and healthy people is so big. I believe it is possible to change the world- one person at a time.
My Certifications and Training
In May 2001, I received a Bachelors of Arts Degree from Prescott College in Prescott, Arizona. My degree was in Environmental Studies. This is where I began my studies in nutrition and holistic health.
Below are the other certifications that I currently maintain:
To share my journey with you.
To inspire you to heal your life.
To be a cheerleader for you.
To help you build your motivation and desire to make the shifts you need so that you can live your best life ever.
After working with me you will feel:
“Lauren embraces the human and divine aspects of life. I am welcome to say anything and be myself. She creates and holds, a warm, friendly space for me to relax into. She's a great question asker, leading me to discover and express how I really feel, what I really want, and how I can access my wisdom and skills to create a happier, more meaningful and enjoyable life. Before working with Lauren I didn't know what "satisfaction" meant or how I could feel satisfied in my life. Now I feel satisfied and a sense of contentment throughout almost every day. I would highly recommend her! “- Jennelle T.
"Working with Lauren has been a great experience. Her coaching style was an ideal mix of accountability, exploration, spirituality and general well-received intent. She helped me establish a regular meditation practice and a daily running habit, both of which have helped me find a greater sense of balance in my life and in my work. I feel that I've made very tangible progress and I don't think I'll slip out of that any time soon. I would recommend Lauren if you are wanting some real, practical steps for achieving your goals. If you are looking for some positive movement in your life, and need someone to talk through things and gain new perspectives- hire her!" - Andy M.
“Lauren is a good listener and is really genuine in her care for clients. She was a great sounding board for the situation that I'm in and provided a safe place to explore my thoughts and feelings about it. I would recommend Lauren as a coach because of her compassion and helpful insights! “ ~ Colleen C.
“Lauren is a very personable coach that listens very well and truly convenes a heartfelt interest in your personal goals. She has a unique approach to personal coaching. Before working with her, I was feeling stress and anxiety about an upcoming performance. Lauren helped me realize that by engaging in my highest artistic activities with fun and joy I can succeed in communicating my artistic message.” ~ Bill N.
“I have had the pleasure of calling Lauren my friend for more than 15 years. She has a very inviting presence, and she just makes me want to smile, even as we have discussed some truly heart-rending topics. It's pretty difficult to find someone whose agenda is really to remind you of your highest truth. Lauren is that someone.” ~ Keith P.
