Founder and Executive Director

Candilyn Baribault


A little about me…I am a successful business woman, mother, grandmother, and survivor of more than what I consider the average challenges in life. It is my past that has molded me into the strong person I am today, driven to help others in their current life struggles and to pass on what I’ve adopted as my truth to living a healthy, happy life.

I believe our life’s journey is not based on increasing monetary success, rather on increasing awareness – we are here to discover our deepest truths. I found that all the things I thought were wrong with me and my life challenges were merely the doorway to discovering my strengths and opportunities to grow. I won’t bore you with my stories, obstacles, loss of family members and times I spent in poverty. I’ve lived the highest highs and lowest lows of two failed and abusive marriages, and was nearly homeless while raising two boys to become good men. In truth, I embrace all of my life’s lessons. I’m grateful for the ups and downs in my journey and that I’ve been able to experience the darkest dark as well as the lightest light. One thing I discovered in the decades of parenting and trying to survive life was how important a safe environment was to myself and my children. It’s taken me years to truly understand what that actually means, and how to create it in the midst of havoc and worldly chaos. In 2022 my youngest adult son was diagnosed with a brain tumor, one of a mothers deepest fears manifested. During the time I spent caring for my son, I did a tremendous amount of research on healthy masculinity, vulnerability, and wellness.(Fortunately he is now healed). This is where I did a deep dive into searching for the true meaning in life…Instead I found myself, my strength. Wellness is not confined to one aspect of our lives. We think we know what causes our pain: the other person, my physical health, not enough money, bad memories from childhood. So we usually look no further. 8 Dimensions of Wellness taught me that happiness and fulfillment come from learning how all aspects of our lives are interconnected. This is the miraculous path that taught me how to experience holistic wellness, meaning healing in every part of my life. I invite you to walk with me on this magical journey so you too can experience happiness, peace and fulfillment in your life.

Advisory Board Members

Dr. Amy Johnson

I’m a coach, The Little School of Big Change teacher, social psychologist, mother, and the author of a few best selling self help books.

In my life, I experienced severe anxiety, panic attacks, and binge eating/bulimia for several years. I was told by many well-trained, well-intentioned professionals that these issues would likely be with me for life in one form or another. They could become manageable; I could learn to cope—but they weren’t the kind of things people just “got over”.

Thankfully, nothing could be further from the truth today.

Several years ago I came across a down-to-earth spiritual understanding of life that changed everything for me. It is the basis of everything I teach and write about. It is the foundation for how I help people end their own unwanted habits and unnecessary worries.

Noushin Bayat, EdD

I work as a human capital consultant and trusted advisor to executives across a variety of industries. My passion is mental wellbeing and conscious leadership to drive human-centered organizational effectiveness and successful change management. Throughout my career, I’ve worked with executives at global organizations and also owners of local small businesses. What I notice across the board is the impact of our increasingly disruptive world on people’s understanding of their own strengths. Regardless of their role within an organization, there is an increase of self doubt, overwhelm and confusion which is leading to increasing experiences of mental illness and diminished capacity in facing the many challenges in our personal and professional lives. I leverage my understanding of neuroscience, systems science, psychology and business best practices to support my clients to come home to their unshakeable core of wellbeing and wisdom that genuinely enhances collaboration, empathy, confidence, creativity, agile decision-making and overall effectiveness.

We delve deeper than surface-level health, venturing into the realms of social, occupational, financial, environmental, physical, spiritual, emotional, and intellectual wellness. What we value most is to convey the knowledge that this isn’t a quick fix for a pain – it’s an expedition into wellness in every part of your life.
