Brandilyn's voice echoes in my head between our calls, helping me reframe my problems to see them differently. I can't wait for each week's call so that I can gain more insight into why I am the way I am. Our calls are real, insightful, eye opening, and empowering. I end the calls feeling really good, and ready to take action and not procrastinate!
Brandi is the REAL DEAL! She was able to help me overcome some of my biggest insecurities and obstacles because she has the innate ability to see what the real truth is behind the lies we have convinced ourselves are true. I have never worked with someone so understanding and relatable, but still firm and able to kick butt! I was given homework after our first meeting and although it was strange at first, I noticed an immediate shift in my thinking and my ability to express myself. She gives real-world advice and solutions. She is definitely a force of positive change that anyone and everyone could benefit from!
Within minutes of speaking with Brandilyn, I knew that she would be just the right person to help me overcome the insecurities I have held onto for years. I came to her with so many things that I have been stuck seeing a certain way, and she quickly helped me recognize new empowering perspectives I had no idea were even possible. Unlike the coaches and counselors I have seen in the past, Brandilyn backs up the insights from our conversations with homework assignments, and powerful practical things for me to do each day and week. She is both an astute empathetic listener, and a no-nonsense coach who will hold you accountable to giving it your all! She models authenticity and transformation through sharing her own story and lessons learned, and that's part of what made me so excited to work with her. If you've seen her videos, poems, or otherwise been mind-blown by the words and presence of Brandilyn Tebo, I strongly encourage you to have that free conversation with her, and open up completely about what's really going on and what you truly desire. My coaching season with her has only just started, and I'm already feeling ten times better about the parts of my life I was previously feeling the worst about. I'm confident that I really can change, heal my wounds, and grow into the person I've always wanted to be! Thank you so much!
The Shift Retreat inspired me to continue on the path to share and spread love and healing. We were offered a safe place to fully express ourselves; we felt free and in our element to be okay with whatever thoughts and feelings arose. That in itself was medicine. I experienced so much positive growth! Sharing healthy home-cooked meals, being vulnerable and seen through guided discussions, and engaging with our true feminine essence and power has evoked the courage to embody our true self. And what we created are lasting bonds of empowerment. Truly grateful!

The soul goals workshop gave and demonstrated wonderful tools for getting to the core of motivation behind goals I choose to set. They helped to free from the weight of obligation and feel what is meant to feel from pursuing goals worthy of the soul. I will definitely be using the tools again in the future.
I really had no idea what to expect coming into this retreat. I was just drawn to Brandilyn's energy from when we first met and I knew it would be an amazing experience. Brandi chose a beautiful and relaxing retreat space out in the woods of California, perfect for creating a safe space to allow people to open up, connect and rediscover a truer, happier version of themselves. She created a great community right off the bat, with cooking and sharing meals together, fun exercises and questions, group meditations and discussions.
With each exercise, I felt I was discovering and rediscovering facets of myself that needed to be unearthed, parts of myself that had been forgotten, discarded or left behind, and parts that I had been trying to hide. I definitely experienced a rollercoaster of a journey, filled with many ups and downs, but the best part was that I knew I wasn't alone in this journey. I was in this ride with other amazing individuals all struggling with aspects of their own lives. We were all in this journey together, and the support that Brandilyn created throughout the weekend really helped to manifest a discovery of who we are, who we want to become, and how to get there.

The retreat has opened my mind and my heart to new experiences, and accepting what is. It helped me see what I have not been able to see for over 30 years. Brandilyn guided us with great positive energy, wisdom, and knowledge. I would love to have the opportunity to participate in other retreats. I met wonderful women that struggled just like me but in other aspects of life, but we all came together to improve our lives, and we got way more than that. I feel stronger, happy, and powerful.

I really loved the flexibility and non-rigidness of the retreat (exercises were optional, etc) because it allowed us to take a step back and breathe if we needed to. I loved the focus on healthy eating and some healing through the body. I felt very welcome and understood--I was challenged in good ways. Thank you sincerely!

This weekend's healing retreat was filled with risks, boldness, and beautiful connections. An open-minded space was created through yoga, dance, meditation and conversational activities facilitating healing and personal breakthroughs. Through the support of Brandilyn and these strong women, I am able to leave with newfound freedom and release from past struggles that had held me down. I feel blessed to have gotten to participate in this amazing opportunity.

I will describe the weekend retreat as a truly transformational experience. From the exercises, to the vegan delicious food, to the bonding between women, the experience was life changing. As a licensed psychotherapist myself, not immune to life's difficulties and traumas, I really needed something powerful and dynamic. I received far more than I bargained for. Brandilyn is amazingly talented and skilled in her ability to facilitate powerful group sessions, but her genuineness and passion were the ingredients that really made for a breakthrough weekend. I have her to thank for so much healing that took place in my heart <3
- Courtney Samari (Psychotherapist)
Wow, what an incredible weekend this was! I don't even know where to begin. The meditations, the exercises, the personal focus--it was all a very liberating experience. I flew out from Chicago for this retreat and it was SO worth it. I feel so much more willing to be open and vulnerable in my day to day life now. Brandilyn is an incredible leader and makes you feel incredibly welcome. She shapes the retreat to meet the mood of the individuals that are there, making the experience that much more personal. I'm so thankful I got to be present for this retreat. I hope I can attend another someday.

Articulate, exacting, and most of all moving. Brandi is a one of a kind speaker always sure to capture any audience with her bravery and thoughtfulness.

Today I realized that not every thought I have is true. I realized that I can do anything. I learned that the only thing stopping me are my thoughts. I learned that my thoughts don’t define me.
- Katey L.
The workshop created some self awareness that I didn’t have. Also put me on a path to change my own inner dialogue and be more conscious of how it drives my actions. Great workshop!
- Juilia A.
I enjoyed this session and hearing about other people’s journeys. It was most helpful to see that I am not alone in what I think and feel about my body. It was helpful to challenge my opinions and views and hear other people challenge theirs as well. Overall, this was a great experience and I would love to attend another!
- Christina M.
Very eye-opening. I never realized so much energy was focused on body imaging, depleting my full potential. Thank you for your kind and systematic way of presenting. You are a true leader.
- Rebecca H.
Your workshop woke me up to the impact of my limiting thoughts and beliefs in a gentle way that didn't make me feel wrong or guilty of the thoughts I hold. I felt safe to share myself to the group and I was left reassured that I'm not alone in my journey. Thank you for leaving me behind with the greatest gift -- that my thoughts I have of my body are not the truth.

I first reached out to Brandi because although I was committed to recovery from my eating disorder and creating peace with my body, I felt like I had plateaued. I was looking for an opportunity to renew my commitment to health and wellness, and new ways to overcome long-standing, self-destructive thoughts and behaviors. Less than fifteen minutes in on my first call with Brandi, I knew that I wanted to commit to her coaching program. Within an hour I had already made breakthroughs I hadn't so much as glimpsed with my therapist. She cultivated a supportive relationship that simultaneously comforted and challenged me; I set bold goals that would have been intimidating without her guidance, and achieved much more with Brandi's coaching than I could have on my own. By week two, I was examining the beauty myth and my own thoughts with more curiosity than ever before; by week three, I was healing a core relationship that had been falling apart for months; by week five, I was exploring my ethics around food and giving myself permission to try new ways of eating; and by the eighth and final week, I was discovering so much peace and new mental space that I didn't want to stop the coaching program. I would recommend Brandi's coaching program to anyone and everyone who is seeking peace with their body, whether it's for the first or the millionth time. I can't sing her praises enough.

Brandilyn is one POWERHOUSE of a coach. Within minutes of speaking with her my mind was able to focus on my priorities and what is important to me, instead of my insecurities. She was able to help me feel and appreciate my true core self, and I left our coaching call feeling completely energized, confident, strong, and excited …a way that I had not felt in a long time. One of my biggest fears of working with a coach is only talking about mindset, and not walking away with actionable tips I could implement in my life. Not the case with Brandilyn. Not only did she help my mindset but she gave me amazing advice that I implemented into my life right away. Brandilyn is truly a gem and I highly recommend her services to anyone who is ready to feel like their best, most radiant self.

Brandi has such a gift for helping people. She's incredibly insightful, understanding and encouraging. I've been a client of hers for the last few months and we've already covered a lot. Lately my biggest struggle has been recovering from an eating disorder that I've had since childhood. She helped me change how I respond to my thoughts. It's made such a huge difference! I've been less concerned with what people think of me and I stopped judging myself so much. Brandi's approach to coaching is very hands on. She consistently keeps up with me and how I'm doing. She helped me find inspiration and motivation that I haven't had in years. I'm very grateful to have her as a mentor!
