Hey, I’m Krystal.

Artist, writer, intuitive, creative, mama of five  🧡 🧡 🧡 🧡 🧡

I’m a birthkeeper + freethinker, and I’ve been blogging since 2005.

I became a mama when I was just 18 - and I believe that parenting is the most profound personal growth journey we can ever embark upon, to paraphrase Robin Lim.

My fifth baby was born free in 2011 - a peak experience of my life thus far!

Together with my husband, we aim to parent our kids with kindness and responsibility, and to live in relationship with nature. 

We are aspiring homesteaders, and sometimes have success with our wild gardens, here in the Texas Hill Country.

In the months (and years!) after my freebirth, I received cosmic downloads amidst 3am breastfeeding sessions...which finally manifested into an actual book!

My signature program, RECLAMATION, has been a labo{u}r of love that I've been visioning into existence for over a decade. 

All my offerings are created expressly for you, with love.

some of my obsessions over the last 20 years include…

EFT/Tapping, Enneagram, bellydance, permaculture, the Bach flower remedies, Reiki, essential oils, Waldorf dolls, henna, the Harry Potter books - and of course, Human Design and Gene Keys.

life looks like…

gardens, chickens, delicious food, time outside,
time together as a family, lots and lots of books

I first discovered unschooling as a teen, and started the process with my own children when my oldest was almost 5, and his sister was a toddler. I coined the term "relationship-based unschooling" to describe our unique take on parenting and education.

For a while, I let go of making art - because my kids were little, and I was busy, stressed, and felt like I didn't have time.

Now, I have come to realize that creativity is a woman's lifeblood - and cannot be ignored or forgotten without harm to her psyche.

I believe that healing is your birthright as a human, and creativity is your birthright as a WOMAN.

What you’ll discover here…

BIRTH and MOTHERING – I’m the author of a new book called The Conscious Pregnancy Guidebook, and I’m also the founder of RethinkBirth.com.

UNSCHOOLING — I’ve been actively unschooling my kids since 2004, when my oldest was barely 5. I used to run a group called Relationship-Based Unschooling + Parenting that helped thousands of parents become more connected with their kids.

HEALING and INTUITION – I believe that health care is primarily self-care, and that reconnecting with our primal intuition is the way to awaken our true health and vitality.

The future of healing is in self-led choice and energy medicine - not the “sick care system” that’s being pushed on us.

I think it’s time we reclaim our innate magic and let go of the lone wolf paradigm.

The future is about creative, sovereign community! Don’t you agree?
