Root to Rise with
Next Session: Spring 2021
The six-week path to healing your past, reclaiming your future,
and remembering the truth of who you really are.
Do you remember who you were before others told you who you should be? Do you have a feeling that “something is missing” no matter what you? Then it’s time to root down and rise.
In this transformational six-week course, we’ll use practices from Curanderismo (an ancient Mexican folk healing tradition) to journey back to the root by tapping into the strength of our ancestors—and remembering our own true (and un-traumatized) essence. In that place of rootedness, we’ll remember our own strengths, recover our own voice, unearth our unique gifts, and re-write our own story. Feeling whole, fortified, and grounded, we leave with a new roadmap of how we can share our unique and inherent talents and experiences with the world.
If you are being called to heal, lead, and grow, join us as we root down, then rise together.
What I do.
I am a former media maven turned modern curandera.
For nearly two decades, I found huge success in media: writing books, appearing countless times on the Today Show, getting nominated for an Emmy hosting my own TV show, and serving as Co-President of Latina Media Ventures.
But then I hit a wall.
And my hustling gave way to healing.
Not finding anything out there in the leadership and self-help world that spoke to what I was feeling: burnt out, overwhelmed, and with an aching sense of incompletion, I turned to my own culture and past for guidance. My great-grandmother was a curandera: a Mexican folk healer, and a medicine woman. Inspired by her, I began studying curanderismo to heal myself.
And now I want to share what I've learned with you.

“I recommend Robyn's services to anyone, but particularly to those who are ready to feel free. Free from pain, free from doubt, free from the limitations that they may have experienced because of generations of systemic oppression or familial trauma. What Robyn has taught me is that this freedom does not mean living "without". It means gracefully and peacefully living with. And for that lesson, I will always be grateful. Robyn has opened doors for me that I foresee opening a million more doors throughout my lifetime. I believe in myself more as a writer, mother, and mujer. She possesses magic and she's not afraid to share it with you. If you're ready to find your roots and rise, work with Robyn.”—Sara Alvarez Kleinsmith
