Kori Leigh – CULTIVATE WELLNESS: KORI LEIGH
WHAT DO YOU MAKE/SELL? TELL US ABOUT YO’ SELF.
I am a holistic nutritionist and lifecoach – I am a believer in the divinity of darkness and I create space for humans to show up and simply be human. I tend to work with processing of heart matters and the ritual of self-care – knowing that we are not broken and do not need fixing … we are on a journey of learning self-compassion and intentional self care. My craft is really hold space for people (especially women) to show up – flaws and all – and learn the ritual of intentional self-care. I am also a wee bit rebellious in the sense that I like to advocate for the things we need to talk about: women’s rights, human rights, sexual health etc…. I am a voice for the voiceless and I am not afraid to talk about the shit people don’t want to talk about!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD YOUR BUSINESS?
1 year with this business, I have been in the realm or wellness coaching for 11 years!
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
I fell into a very dark place myself – I experienced the dark night of the soul when I left an abusive relationship. It took me a LONG time to recover and through it I feel into darkness that almost took me out. I found divinity in that place and I am such advocate of holding that space for others.
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOUR WORK?
The moon inspires me. Tribe inspires me. Evolution and courage are 2 of my biggest motivating factors and the forest….. anything that has to do with the forest, mother earth and crafting plant medicine is my inspiration. My whole house is decorated in jars of witchy herbs and I find inspiration in this kitchen EVERY DAY.
WHAT DO YOU DREAM FOR YOUR BUSINESS IN THE FUTURE?
To be a global platform for women to come home to the seat of their hearts – for women to come together in tribe and share stores and heal…. As a collective whole. I dream for my business to inspire the ritual of self-care though unconditional self-acceptance and the ability to continually show up for our own hearts.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM AND WHY?
I like IG – I just enjoy the interaction over on my IG home and in the inspiring humans I follow.
HOW DO YOU PICK YOURSELF UP WHEN THINGS GO WRONG?
I am dedicated to riding the wave of my heart – this means I continually find the courage to surrender into the places that my heart resides and I call on the rituals of self-care and nourishment. This always involves exlir making and recipe creating. I write… a lot. I pray and sage and connect to mother earth…. And I connect with my tribe.
WHAT’S ONE THING NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT YOU? GIVE US AN INTERESTING FACT!
Hmmm….. I make a priority of living unapologetically, transparently and outloud – so this is a hard question….
An interesting fact about me…. My all time favourite book is Brida by Paulo Coelho…. I am SO inspired by this story
IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPER POWER WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Good questions…. I would be able to communicate with plants! Trees and herbs and mycelium and I would be able to know exactly how to craft healing potions with them!!
