Dr. Krystal White

“I love my work, which is to open hearts, free spirits and expand mindsets, so that we create communities that benefit us all.

Choice is always available.

Change is always possible.

I aspire to connect that way, move that way, and think that way. But if I could only get one thing right in my life, I pray to love that way.”

The Mission

I am passionate about the process of cultivating powerful partnerships, and practicing progressive, transformational ways of interacting.

My mission is to equip leaders at all levels of development with the relational capacities and spiritual qualities necessary to consciously use their thoughts and beliefs, feelings and intuition, plans and decision, in service of 1) their own individual integrity and 2) the best interests of others.  

Leaders who work with me catalyze change, so that their individual, family, team or organizational culture can be:

Energized, Engaged, Empowered.

I work with leaders that are ready to

  • truly identify and effectively respond to their blindspots (or those of their team)
  • restore trust, balance, and synergy in themselves AND their key personal or professional relationships, or
  • successfully transition themselves or their organization into a new venture, era or culture

The Work

My work involves

  • Optimizing group dynamics so that the well-beings of the individuals are served, and shared results are fully enjoyed. 
  • Provoking salient insight in order to stimulate plasticity, diversity, and mental agility.
  • Giving effective feedback in order to target specific relational goals.
  • Utilizing experential learning in order to enrich emotional intelligence. 

Shamans serve to enlighten and equip their communities towards the highest good. They operate at multiple levels in order to harmonize the work of spirit, heart, mind, and body. They often create a shift of consciousness and/or energy that allows for heightened awareness, deepened purpose, and more fulfilling relationships.

I deeply collaborate with teams and leaders to feel better, think better and act better as a group, for prosocial purposes.  By applying multidisciplinary techniques that span brain psychology, organizational effectiveness, and military strategy, my services create the necessary conditions required for real, powerful and healing growth.
