What is KAISTARA's purpose?

KAISTARA is all about creating your desired work-life through change by design, not by default. We are part of a global movement towards meaningful, impactful, and engaged work... leaving behind the struggle of balancing work and life to step into the satisfaction of becoming your life's work instead. 

What are the offerings?

KAISTARA provides leadership consulting and coaching services to support experienced business executives, entrepreneurs, and emerging women who seek to embody leadership for a change.

KAISTARA facilitates transformational retreats for on-purpose women who want to shift the meaning of work... women who desire to move beyond making a living, to creating a life of impact and contribution.

Where does the name KAISTARA come from?

    The name KAISTARA has its roots in opening and transformational change. It is a created word made up by combining "kai," which is the Chinese word meaning "to open," with the suffix "-stara", which is taken from Ostara -- the name of the spring goddess of rebirth and transformation.
