Do you have a hard time taking action because you’re afraid of failing?

Does it drive you nuts how much you obsess about what others think of you?

Have you noticed you are constantly trying to please the people around you (often at the expense of your own happiness)?

Maybe you always hit a wall right before you’re about to have a breakthrough…

Maybe you find yourself not being who you genuinely want to be in the world and tolerating way more than you want to…

Perhaps you sabotage yourself in intimate relationships, friendships, and career…

If you can relate to any of these things, “Hallelujah, sister!” You’re in the right place!

Make lifelong friends with amazing womxn who want to create a life of more freedom, adventure, and purpose – just like you. 

They aren’t your average travelers – they’re ready for full-on adventure and living life wild + free. Every damn day. Also – this isn’t a competitive adventure race – we support every womxn rising. Together.

Whether you’re aching to launch your dream career (and leave the one you feel stuck in), gathering the courage to actually be you and wear whatever the f*ck you want and say whatever the hell you feel like saying, or starting to wondering why you are tolerating the things you are in life, one thing’s for sure: 

You want to feel aligned – that your life on the outside matches who you are on the inside. You want to  feel proud and confident – no regrets, no matter what.

The Adventure Mastermind will provide you with all the tool, coaching, support, and adventures that you need to do exactly that.

In the Adventure Mastermind, you’ll also uplevel your Ziji : radiant inner confidence.

Ziji doesn’t depend on what others think. It’s the kind of confidence that doesn’t give a shit about how you measure up to someone else, because you feel So. Damn. Good. in your own skin.

Sure, you know {deep down} you are smart, sexy, and funny.

You’ve managed to start dreaming of more fulfilling careers.

And maybe you’ve even quit your job.

You’ve decided that maybe – just maybe – the soulmate thing isn’t bullshit after all, and you don’t want to settle. Ever.

Perhaps your life is even coveted by those around you.

But there’s just one little problem:

Your life – and how you live it – isn’t reflective of who you really are.

And you know it.

Having radiant inner confidence doesn’t just influence how successful you are. 

It has an effect on:

// How in-love-with-life you are.

// How proud you are of the person you’ve become.

// How many risks you’re willing to take to create the life you want.

And while keeping your shit together or “just” doing better than everyone else isn’t a sin

It only represents you on a scale of 1-10, compared to others.

Not the you who is way beyond numbers.

Introducing the Adventure Mastermind:

This is a proven, field-tested system that has literally changed the lives of so many people like you.

People who know they are amazing but aren’t living like it.

People who remember how totally ALIVE they felt “back in the day” and yearn to have that again (you know it’s in there somewhere!).

People with genuine talent, beauty, and creativity that don’t quite know how to OWN IT! (yet)

While you’ve “gotten by” all these years, surviving embarrassing moments, being uncomfortable center-stage, managing awkward dates, putting up with so-so relationships, and tolerating all the bullshit you tolerate, a Freedom Junkie’s life isn’t about tolerating.

It is about creating an epic life on your own terms.

It’s about being authentically you.

It’s about showing up in the world and living your life in a way that you’re proud of.

In a Freedom Junkie’s life, you’re creating a life where you are happy to say, “No, thanks” because you know something better is coming. Creating a life where you are comfortable being picky. Creating a future where you actually savor the life that you have busted your ass to create – and truly deserve. Creating an authentic YOU that knows they deserve to be prioritized and cared for. Creating every precious day as you wake up unafraid of what might happen, because you know you can handle whatever life may bring.

How to get there?

Your ziji. Your Unshakeable, Radiant Inner Confidence.

Except that confidence of yours might not feel so radiant – or unshakeable.

And that’s where the Adventure Mastermind comes in.

I know that Confidence isn’t built up overnight. I know that it takes more than one workshop to imagine, plan, and execute what it takes to create the next amazing chapter in your life.

When they’re not there – when you get some negative feedback, or the person you were waaaaay into doesn’t call you, or you didn’t land the job – that shaky confidence fades. Ouch.

Enter: anxiety.

I know that true unshakeable confidence comes from an inner, radiant, powerful source that also manifests as outward successes.

That’s why I made this for you.

I know not everyone likes to geek out and learn the scientifically-proven methods for increasing confidence, getting sh*t done and learning to not care what other people think about you- but I do, and I love sharing😉 

Plus, I make it fun for you so that you don’t have to re-read all the scientific stuff I’ve poured over during my 30+ years of geeking out on this stuff – in academic centers and in the real world.

I’ve packaged it all up in an epic 6-month experience – just for you!

“We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.” ~ Jim Rohn

Let’s do this together. Creating an aligned life also doesn’t happen alone on an island – even if that island is in Hawai’i 😉 It requires a squad of amazing people to help you be brave, and take risks, and go beyond your comfort zone so that you emerge a more authentic and bigger version of you. So I created that squad – and would love for you to join!

I want you to have unshakeable inner confidence that lasts – to (as we say), “Ziji Up!”

The Adventure Mastermind will help you:

  • Seize OPPORTUNITIES that show up, so you don’t wonder “What if I had…”
  • Get clear about exactly what you want in life – your deepest desires finally outed. Savor the success that flows to you when you allow your badass to show up in the world and in what you create
  • Be proud of the person you’ve become. You’re so much more than that list of dreams written in your journal – you are those dreams MANIFESTED – and you need to get out there and live them!
  • Know how to show up for YOURSELF consistently, and be able to cultivate the self-respect that comes from knowing you can trust yourself. No more flaking on your promises you’ve made. More, “I’ve got this!”
  • Be an inspiration to your family and friends as they watch you create the life of your dreams
  • Have moments of pure relaxation, because that’s how it feels when your outer life is in alignment with your inner one. You are in the body of a person you respect – you.
  • Get unstuck and let go of the things that drain you, overwhelm you, and suck the life out of you.
  • Build a sense of sovereignty, so you step out of being a martyr or victim and start coming from a place of power.
  • Build resilience. Be able to handle the emotions that come up during hard times, knowing that even when life isn’t going your way, you’ve got what it takes to handle it. Life stoped being about avoiding and more about, “Bring it on!”
  • And most importantly, at the end of the day, to look at your life and genuinely feel a sense of pride at how you showed up in the world – for yourself, and for others. You’ll feel that sense of well-being that comes from knowing that no matter how the day goes, you know deep down you’ve done your best.

We’ll schedule a chat and you can ask me any questions you have and get clear if this is right for you

We are committed to social justice

Partial scholarships are available for BIPOC applicants in financial need, and 10% of all profits go to go to the Native Hawaiian non-profit Kahea to support the Aloha ‘Āina fund. We need to understand our impact when we visit native lands, remember that we are only visitors + travel with minimal impact, and give back.

I didn’t feel like I was living up to my potential. I needed a boost and ongoing encouragement to make positive changes in my life. Ana has accomplished so many things in her life, she is so pragmatic, logical, AND likes to have fun. I hadn’t considered any life coaching before this. The most powerful lesson that I received from the program were learning about my negative self talk, and how to manage it, as well as how my fear of success was holding me back. I am the happiest I’ve been in a long time, and I know that this is my new baseline. You got me back on track Ana! You are really good at what you do. THANK YOU!
~ Kara Farmer, Idaho
Before I worked with Ana I was feeling frustrated as to why I was not meeting some of my goals and really wondering why I felt like so much was out of my reach. I realized through the workshop that the reason I had so much doubt was because I had not gotten laser clear about what I wanted. Sounds easy, it is and it isn’t. Also I was not honoring my values. Probably because I had not taken the time to figure out what they were! Again, sounds easy right? Well let me tell you – if it was, then I would have done it already! The recipe for turning this around was provided to me and the result was pretty much an instant turnaround. The tools that you acquire by going through this process will be with you always and more than likely change the way you look at things forever. Ana is an amazing coach and I feel so fortunate to get to work with her. Thanks, Ana, for helping me realize that I already am the badass I want to be. 🙂 See y’all at the top!
~ Jen Field, Oregon
Before I did Ana’s program I was in a funk, not that life was bad, I just felt personally stuck and needed some more skills, specifically her “Jedi Mind” skills. Not only did I get out of my funk, I lost weight, improved my co- parenting relationship and my business income increased (no joke abundance affirmation works!) all within 6 months…coincidence? Not really, just a great coach and program that helped create momentum for change and a willingness to take on living my BEST LIFE, out of the box. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
~ Love, Melissa Cooley Visionary artist, Yogini, mother of twins, business owner!

“Before working with Ana I worked with another coach, but honestly it was just ok and I never implemented anything we talked about.

After just one week in the Adventure Mastermind with Ana I knew I had found someone who truly could help me create a life of my dreams. Working with Ana is absolutely EPIC experience. She has this magical power that will help you smash through what ever is holding you back + help you get you ah-freaking-mazing clarity on what you TRUELY want.

It’s been a few weeks into our program and I use the tools that Ana taught me to make inspired decisions about my life + business daily. I’m on the road to creating a life packed full of adventure, creativity + FUN!! Thank you, ANA!!

~ Sarat Hart, Canada

After working with Ana, I left an unhealthy relationship, found a beautiful home to live in, found a new job, gotten very clear about my work, become more confident and positive, and have met so many amazing new people, just because I feel so much better about myself and my life! I have been approached by schools and publishers, and I did not do any “pushing,” networking, or uncomfortable (for me) “saleswoman-y” type selling of myself. These new opportunities just came to me. It’s amazing what opens up when you have the guidance of a wise, truly gifted mentor like Ana. I highly recommend Ana’s work … invest in yourself & learn that you are worth it! Ana is a coach who can definitely help you become clear, and help you step up into living fully, living the life you have dreamed of.
~ Becky Wood, CA
Working with Ana through my challenges taught me what I desperately NEEDED to learn, rather than what I THOUGHT I would like to learn. What continues to serve me is a new awareness where I can identify places of resistance as places that need my attention. I have become braver and quicker to act on opportunities and challenges that I might have put off or dismissed all together in the past. I’ve replaced negative, limiting beliefs with positive, expansive ones; tapped into my intuition, and created a stronger trust in myself. I can choose a course of action and know that whatever the outcome, I will be wiser and more resilient. I celebrate my accomplishments daily and don’t dwell on setbacks. When I do get off track, I notice it more quickly, recommit and do what it takes to get my vibration juiced up again. Ana is a wealth of compassion, wisdom, positivity – an intuitive bad ass with the tools and experience to guide you through your unique journey in identifying and obtaining your goals.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Will this program solve all my problems? How is it different from all the others?

The short answer – this depends on you. Kind of like life.

The Adventure Mastermind is not a magic pill. There is no such thing. (Have you noticed?) So, I’m not about to promise you a million bucks in 6 months or less. And I’m not going to tell you that you’ll find your soul mate in 30 days. Why?

Because all of that stuff – including any so-called magic pill – comes from outside of you. It makes you believe that you can’t create all the yumminess from inside of you. The entire idea of programs, diets, or self-improvement gurus that are magic pills takes the power away from you. I want you to deeply understand what your life will be like when you tap into the power you have within you.

A lot of programs out there seem to promise you results and all you have to do is sit back and wait, right?

Not so much here. This is not about a “quick fix” but rather a deep and lasting fix. Even when you create something like effortlessness in your life, you still take an active role in it. Simply hoping for the best doesn’t cut it.

When you finally realize how you’ve been getting in your own way, and as you realize all the obstacles that have been blocking you, you will want to engage more deeply in your life. You’ll be psyched to do this because you’ll learn HOW to release those blocks.

You have to show up and do the work. And if you do, you will see changes! How far you take it is up to you.


2. Can men join?

The Adventure Mastermind is for anyone who self-identifies as a womxn.


3. Should I do this or Freedom School?

These are very different – and awesome – programs. I recommend you submit an application and we can meet to decide which program is better for you.


4. I am suffering from major depression and healing some deep wounds. Will this program help me?

Short answer: I am a therapist but I am not your therapist. 

I have had people suffering from depression and anxiety take my programs or work with me 1:1 while they are concurrently working with a therapist, and it is a wonderful way to get the best of both the therapy world and the coaching world.

But I’ll be really clear here: the Adventure Mastermind is not to process deep wounds or ruminate about the past. There simply isn’t a way to effectively support those kinds of processes online or in group retreats. Especially without taking time away from the rest of the people in the group.

While you will learn more empowered ways to deal with those generally unhelpful patterns of living in the past, if you are dealing with diagnosed depression, you may need to go to those places to heal before you can move forward. The proper place to do that is with your therapist.

I recommend you show this page to your therapist and see if they think it would be a great compliment to the work you are already doing!


5. All this talk about Ziji, inner radiant confidence, and clarity sounds fine and dandy, Ana, but they don’t pay the bills. So why should I invest in this?

Short answer: You are investing in yourself, your mental health and creating the masterpiece of your life – and that’s the best investment you could ever make.

I mean, I hear you. But think about this:

Clarity + Confidence DO lead you to make better choices so you stop wasting energy and money on all the energy vampire things you keep settling for in your life.

Clarity + Confidence DO help you stop patterns of self-sabotage, and instead recognize – and act – when the perfect opportunities show up

Clarity + Confidence DO help you strategize the most effective steps for turning an idea into an income-generating project.

Clarity + Confidence DO help you focus so that you aren’t distracted by so many “bright shiny objects” and instead, your time – and therefore your life – becomes more valuable.

So, my fellow wild womxn, I believe that confidence DOES, in fact, pay the bills.

But I get it. When I was just getting started, I didn’t have this belief. And you might not either (especially if you’ve never invested or taken a chance on yourself before).

After reading the good news below, tell the doubting thoughts in your head to shut the hell up because there are no more excuses!
