Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience empowers women leaders to reclaim balance, well-being and success. Our body shows us when we’ve been stretched beyond our limits and knocked out of balance. But what can we do about it and how can we recognize those first signs? Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience shows us how.

Rootsilience (“root - zeel - ience”) is a new word and rhymes with resilience. We invented the word because to affect real, transformational change, we need to create new consciousness with new language. Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience is inspired by ancient teachings and modern science and combines three key branches: conscious leadership, healing foods, and mind-body integration.

Imagine a world where...  

Leadership is living authentically, with a profound sense of mission and purpose.
Success means being healthy, happy and living in harmony with each other and our planet.

We decipher the language of our body, behavior and mind to nurture our roots and work holistically with our healthcare providers towards well-being.

This is Rootsilience.


Our body shows us when we’ve been stretched beyond our limits and knocked out of balance. But what can we do about it and how can we recognize those first signs?

Women leaders need a new path to balance, well-being and success. Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience is that path.

Resilience is not enough to deal with the stressors and challenges of the day. Our new word, Rootsilience, takes the notion of “resilience” a step deeper, and teaches us to be grounded, rooted and able to respond to stressors from a place of stability rather than being stretched beyond our limits.


Your personalized Rootsilience Leadership Map helps you identify areas of focus to find balance and ease. This insightful tool maps the VIA Character Strengths (a lauded tool from positive psychology) to the ancient chakra system and highlights how our strengths – and our possible overuse and underuse of them – are connected at the physical, emotional and mental levels. 

Once you know where you may be vulnerable to falling out of balance you can use the tools from our conscious leadership exercises and healing foods that restore balance and well-being, as well as mind-body integration practices to embody the learnings. Rather than a “one-size-fits-all” approach, Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience empowers you to successfully lead yourself back to balance.


Conscious Leadership. Empowering women to live and lead intentionally, cultivating a connection to meaning and purpose in our personal and professional lives. We embody practices that allow reflection, self-awareness, and personal growth for balanced leadership.

Healing Foods. With every bite we take, we have the power to influence our health and balance our body. We use a systems approach to exploring the root cause of disease and explore "food as medicine," learning about foods that can bring us healing and balance.

Mind-Body Integration. Becoming literate in the language of the body to recognize the subtle signals before they become screeching alarms. We explore yoga and meditation practices to balance the nervous system and embrace the interconnectedness of our mind and body.


“The Rootsilience Leadership Map felt like a map to my soul. I found mine to be spot on, and the imbalances/overuse/underuse analysis was incredibly helpful in showing me my leadership strengths.”  — Ravit, Executive Director in International Development

Rootsilience is about grounding myself in a holistic way on a consistent basis and feeling confident that I can stay empowered and resilient come what stressors will keep coming. I can tap into my own character strengths and utilize what I know about the mind and body and how I can work WITH them to stay resilient, rooted and continue growing, despite some inevitable setbacks."  — Rebecca, NBC-HWC Functional Medicine Health Coach

“I stopped ignoring what my body is telling me, both when something is right and when something is wrong. I started to notice more how much my health impacts my abilities each day and how it also impacts those around me.”
—Annie, Senior Manager at Technology Company

Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience amplifies the voices of those who identify as women. We are activating women to embody our roles as guardians of the earth by nurturing and tending to the roots of our whole selves. We’ve chosen to focus on women for many of the reasons we expand upon on our book, Beyond Resilience to Rootsilience.

We use the word “women” to mean those assigned as women at birth, as we write extensively about aspects of the female anatomy and point to studies and statistics that highlight many of the unique differences in women’s and men’s mental, physical, and behavioral health. That said, the Rootsilience Leadership Path is available for anyone, regardless of gender or social expression, and we hope that anyone who is drawn to a more inclusive and holistic approach to leadership will gain valuable insights from this book.
