Learn to control and transform your thought loops of worry, anxiety, fear and self-doubt so you can overcome life’s challenges with more ease and experience greater success, joy and calm - no matter what life throws your way


The number one thing holding you back from living and feeling your best, is your own mind. Using simple techniques, you'll learn how to recognize your own personal Mind Traps and subconscious programming that are keeping you 'stuck' - and learn how to rewire the brain and reprogram your subconscious to naturally ease those obnoxious thought spirals and take back control over your mind to experience less stress, more joy, create inner peace on demand and ultimately make life better in all ways.



Did you know that the average person has over 60,000 thoughts per day?


And that 80% of those are negative? 


--> For most people, this results in an endless loop of worry, anxiety, fear, anger, disappointment, regret, stress and/or sadness. <--

 Using applied mindfulness and subconscious reprogramming, you can change all of that. 

I can show you how.



You're in the

Right Place if... 


Which of the following describes you best?

1) You're an entrepreneur (or wanna-be entrepreneur) who finds themselves constantly doubting your own abilities, wondering if things will ever really work out, and/or having difficulty focusing on the right steps you need to take to move yourself forward because things always feel so ‘difficult’

2) You feel overwhelmed by all of the worry, anxiety, fear, self-doubt, anger, regret, and/or sadness that constantly play out in your mind - and you just want it to stop so you can finally feel happy, confident and enthusiastic about life

3) You’ve recently been given some devastating/life-changing news and you want to be able to handle it more effectively so you can get out of the thought spirals of despair, self-pity and/or fear about what this means for your future

4) You want to stop the negative thought spirals in your mind so you can experience life in a more joyful, fulfilling way


👉 No matter which one you identify with most, better equipping yourself to control and transform the thoughts in your mind so you can handle all of life’s challenges with more ease (a.k.a. building resilience) is the number one way to achieve greater success, better relationships, more fulfilling careers and ultimately make your life better - no matter what challenges life throws your way.

I'm Ready to Make Change!

Let me guess...

You feel one (or more) of the following ways:

  • You're tired of listening to all the negative thoughts inside your head including constant worry, regret, self-doubt and/or fear about the future
  • You feel like the thoughts in your head are preventing you from living the life you want most - be it happier relationships, a thriving business or simply feeling good each and every day
  • You wonder if you're 'crazy' or 'weird' for feeling the way you do 
  • You envy others who seem to 'have it together' and wish you could get off this roller coaster of thoughts and emotions
  • You want things to change, but you have no idea how to change them
  • Being by yourself can be difficult because of all the negative thoughts in your head, so you're constantly looking for distractions such as meaningless work, scrolling social media, over indulging in food, alcohol or other 'recreational' drugs
  • You agonize about how you'll ever get to where you want to be in the future
  • You feel a sense of anger and despair because all you want is to 'be happy' or 'feel good', but you have no idea how to get there - or if it's even possible
  • There are parts of your past that feel heavy, difficult or overwhelming. You wish you could 'get over it' - but how?!
  • You have a 'feeling' inside of you that you wish you could just 'get out' but it stays no matter what you do
  • You want nothing more than to just 'feel good', confident and ready to take on each day

👉 I get it - because I've been there! 


I remember a day about 16 years ago when I was bawling my eyes out and screaming at my family because water leaked onto a brand new package of toilet paper. It was ruined, and I was devastated.

My Dad kept telling me it was 'okay' and that he'd buy me a new pack. 

"It's not about the toilet paper!" I bawled. 

"Then what is it about?" he asked.

"I don't know!!" I screamed.

And I didn't know, really. Logically I knew that the toilet paper wasn't that big of a deal. But in the moment it felt like the end of the world. Emotion was filling my body, erupting over in a show of yelling at my family while sobbing - and even though I knew it wasn't actually the toilet paper that upset me... I couldn't put my finger on why I was so upset. 

And so I just continued to cry and scream.

Have you ever felt or behaved that way?


YES, Kandis! Help Me!

What I learned, is that my emotions had NOTHING to do with the toilet paper...


... and EVERYTHING to do with my inability to stay in the present moment. 

The ruined toilet paper wasn't actually a big deal. Deep down I knew that 10 bucks could buy me a new pack. BUT... in the previous two weeks I'd broken up with my partner, moved out of the apartment we shared together, paid for a sh*t tonne of new furniture and household items to furnish and stock my new place, and Christmas was just around the corner. I felt overwhelmed, broke and unsure how I'd ever be able to afford presents for my family. On top of all of that, the reason my partner and I had split was because he was in a secret relationship with another girl - almost everything I knew about him was a lie and I felt like a fool for not seeing it sooner.

I'm sharing this because it's important to understand that I wasn't actually devastated because my toilet paper got water on it. I was devastated because of everything I just mentioned above.

Problem was - my inability to stay in the present moment meant that at every moment my mind was wrapped up in thoughts about everything that had gone on in the past two weeks, replaying reasons I should feel foolish, sad, rejected, disappointed, worried and completely overwhelmed with life.

The wet toilet paper? 

That was just 'the straw that broke the camel's back'. 

Learning how to 'stay present' changed EVERYTHING!


At that point in my life almost any challenge - big or small - could set me off into a spiralling emotional breakdown.

My work was suffering, my relationships were strained, my social life was dwindling, but most of all... I felt defeated, tired, overwhelmed, anxious, angry and ready to 'give up' on pretty much everything.

Yes, I was going through a 'difficult time', but surely people had gone through 'worse' things and came out fine on the other side of it, right?!

These feelings were lasting far too long for my liking. And it wasn't the first time either - this seemed to be a pattern in my life. 

"What's wrong with me?" I would ask myself.

"Why can't I just get over this? Why can't I just be normal?"

"Why can't I just BE HAPPY?"


Fast forward to this year, when I was diagnosed with a life-altering disease and barely even flinched.


In August 2022, I was admitted to the hospital and very literally almost died. 

I was then diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Doctors told me that due to an autoimmune disorder, my pancreas no longer functions properly. I will be dependent on insulin for the rest of my life and would have to quickly learn how to manage it so that I don't have long-term side effects such as loss of sight and/or lose a limb. #nobigdealright

My life would quite literally never be the same.

I didn't do anything to cause it. I can't do anything to fix it.

And the crazy (good) part? I was nowhere near as upset about that as I was about the soggy toilet paper that day. 


Because over the past 13 years I've been studying, practicing and teaching applied mindfulness and subconscious reprogramming to literally rewire my own brain (and others') to better handle all of life's challenges with more ease. 

And if my ability to stay calm and centred and to bounce back quickly from this life-altering news wasn't proof of how well these practices work... what would be?!


From quite literally crying over wet toilet paper... to moving through a life-changing diagnosis with ease.


By far, this was not the first time I'd used these practices to get through life's challenges more easily. I've used these tools to:

  • Overcome romantic 'breakups' more quickly
  • Improve difficult relationships with family
  • Increase ability to handle conflict calmly
  • Set and stick to positive boundaries
  • Recognize and stand up for my worth which results in a higher income and improved career that aligns with my deepest values and brings me joy
  • Stop my negative self-talk and develop a deep, loving relationship with myself that allows me to go after my dreams with confidence
  • Make decisions quickly and confidently
  • Handle and bounce back quickly from all of life's challenges - no matter how 'difficult' they may seem
  • Get off the emotional roller coaster of ups and downs and experience long periods of calm, peace of mind and emotional stability
  • Experience joy every day, no matter what is going on in the world around me

I always knew my practices helped me and my clients overcome difficulty, but this particular experience inspired me to bring back my signature program, to share these incredible tools far and wide so people just like you can experience a more joyful, peaceful, easier and overall better life. 

As you can tell from the toilet paper incident, I wasn't always able to handle challenges with ease and grace. I had to learn simple (yet wildly effective) tools to help me make life better.

And now, I want to share those tools with you - so you too can handle life's challenges with more ease, find emotional stability and maintain calm and peace of mind on a regular basis.


I'm ready, Kandis! Show me how!

In Just 10 Weeks, You Could…

  • Discover how to access inner peace - whenever and wherever you need it most

  • Feel confident that you can handle life's challenging situations with more ease

  • Recognize (and change) your personal mind traps and subconscious programming that has been keeping you 'stuck' 

  • Feel more joy, calm & peace of mind daily

You Are Ready To Create Inner Peace on Demand?

This 10-week bootcamp will teach you everything you need to stop being a prisoner of your own thoughts and emotions, so you can experience inner calm whenever and wherever you are - no matter what difficulties life throws your way.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Recognize your personal Mind Traps and subconscious programming that keeps you stuck where you are (and how to change that)
  • Rewire your brain so it works for you instead of against you
  • Control and transform the thought patterns that are currently holding you back
  • Handle life's challenging situations with more ease

Simple, effective tools that literally anyone can learn quickly and easily will help you see life in a whole new way and ultimately - make life better.

What's Included...


Accepting Change & Possibility

If you're like most people, there are areas of your life that you've been struggling with for a long time. It may feel as though making change in these areas is not possible for you - that you've already tried everything. And that's simply not true. In this module we look at:

  • The Buddhist concept of impermanence and how it can be the ultimate catalyst for change in anyone's life
  • Our innate power within that allows us to change any and every part of our lives - even those 'icky' feelings within
  • How to open yourself up to change at the subconscious level so you can transform your 'icky' feelings to ones of calm, joy and inner peace 
  • A renewed sense of possibility, empowerment and excitement about what lays ahead.

Why We Are the Way We Are

Everything we experience today is a culmination of everything you've experienced in the past. This is called subconscious programming. Understanding your subconscious programming is an important part of creating change for your present and future. In this module you’ll experience:

  • How each of your life experiences have played a role in shaping who you are today
  • Which parts of your programming are no longer serving you
  • How we can begin the process of reprogramming your subconscious so you can create more peace within yourself
  • A new awareness of why you are the way you are, how this has helped you in the past, and what needs to change so you can experience your best version of life.

The Toolbox

Now that we can acknowledge the possibility of positive change and understand the past programming that has influenced who we are as our unique selves, we can begin to shift the narrative with ancient practices and neuro-reprogramming. In this module you'll experience:

  • The difference between brain, mind and self
  • How applied mindfulness and neuro linguistic programming can be used to make quick and lasting changes in your life
  • The neuroscientific evidence of how mindfulness works and how it can quite literally rewire your brain for positive change.
  • Simple tools you can start using now to affect the changes you desire
  • How the brain works, why you’re not as different from others as you thought, and how simple exercises can powerfully change your current state

Getting to Know Yourself

The only person that will be with you from the day you’re born until the day you die is… YOU! When you learn to develop a kind, compassionate relationship with yourself, everything changes. In this module you’ll experience:

  • How the relationship you have with yourself quite literally dictates how you see, feel, hear and experience the world around you. 
  • How developing a better relationship with yourself can positively affect your stress response
  • Applicable tools to help you overcome your negative self-talk and increase your self-worth (no matter how ‘bad’ you feel about yourself right now) 
  • The importance of a positive relationship with yourself (especially as you learn to reprogram your mind) and how that directly correlates to becoming stronger and more successful in all areas of your life

Uncovering your "Stories"

Now that you’re able to walk kindly with yourself through this process, we’ll start diving deeper. By nature, human beings love to tell stories. It's a way that we pass down information, share wisdom, or 'get things off our chest' when we've been through a negative experience. Unfortunately, our instinctual love for story-telling can have negative effects too. In this module you’ll experience:

  • How the stories we tell ourselves each day affect our stress response and well-being
  • Tools to slow the thoughts of worry, despair, regret, sadness, disappointment or anxiety that take up much of your mind space all day 
  • How to separate stories and feelings from straight facts - which on its own has a profound effect on the way you feel each day
  • A deeper understanding of how you see the challenges in your life, and how it may be negatively affecting your mood and motivation

The 6 Basic Mind Traps

Your mind loves to keep you ruminating on specific events, regrets, or worries for hours, days, months or even years which leads to increased and sometimes chronic stress, anxiety, depression or anger. In this module you’ll experience: 

  • An understanding of the 6 Mind Traps and how every thought of worry, anger, despair, disappointment, frustration, etc - can be categorized into at least one of the mind traps
  • Practice recognizing your mind’s repetitive stories as one of 6 common Mind Traps so you can release them more quickly 
  • The immediate relief you feel simply by acknowledging the Mind Trap you’re in
  • An understanding of one of the most powerful tools to bring yourself from a state of dis-ease to calm and peace

The Cure for Mind Traps

Now that you're getting used to identifying the 6 common Mind Traps, it's time to give you the antidote - aka the cure! In this module you'll experience: 

  • The 7 attitudes of mindfulness you can use to release yourself from the mind traps
  • A 6-step process to obliterate the mind traps when the attitudes of mindfulness just aren't doing it 
  • How quickly you can free yourself from the feelings of despair, stress, regret, anger, anxiety, worry, etc.
  • Gain a handy toolbox with everything you need ready to release those traps anywhere, anytime

How to Communicate Effectively

Often when we think about our communication skills, we automatically think about our ability (or lack thereof) to properly and consistently convey what we're trying to say to someone. But that’s only half the battle. In this module you’ll experience: 

  • Why an equally important part of communication is how we receive it from others
  • How the biggest aspect of receiving that communication well has nothing to do with the person speaking and everything to do with US
  • Tools for mindful listening and mindful perception and how they play a major role in all areas of your life (not just relationships)

Connecting to Emotional Wisdom

So far we've focused our learnings around our thoughts, how they are helping or hindering us, and useful tools to shift our negative thoughts into more positive ones. Now we're going to take a dive into emotions because… Thoughts cause emotions and emotions cause thoughts. In this module you’ll experience:

  • How to understand those emotions we sometimes feel but don’t know why we’re feeling them
  • How all emotions are valuable pieces of information that we can use to guide us to happier, calmer, more joyful ways of being. 
  • How to tune into your emotions and use them as wisdom to make better choices, gain wisdom in what needs to change and ultimately help you improve all areas of your life

Letting Go (to Let In)

By now, you've built a robust toolbox to help you change what has previously brought you down, be better equipped to handle life's challenges and actively create a more peaceful, calm and joyful life - no matter what life throws your way. However, it's not all sunshine and rainbows. "Bad" things have happened and will happen again. And sometimes, it's hard to let go of the negative feelings and emotions these situations bring.Unfortunately, the only person this hurts is you. In this module you’ll experience:

  • The effects that resisting letting go of negative situations and emotions has on your physical self
  • Understanding of what you ‘should’ hold onto and what you need to let go
  • New tools to help you let go of what doesn’t serve you so you can let in what does
  • A new and wonderful sense of inner calm, peace and freedom.

This Program Is For You If...

  • You want to get rid of the negative thoughts inside your head including constant worry, self-doubt, regret and/or fear about the future
  • You want to stop using distractions such as meaningless work, scrolling social media, over indulging in food, alcohol or other 'recreational' drugs as a means to escape your thoughts
  • You're tired of feeling 'stuck'

  • You're ready to create inner peace that lasts, so can feel good and be 'happy' once and for all


I'm Kandis James

There was a time in my life, soon after college, when the constant loop of insecurities, worry, anxiety and fear that played out in my mind led me to drown out the noise the only way I knew how - gossip (drama), parties and way too much alcohol and drugs. 

Life felt exhausting and overwhelming. And I was not physically or mentally healthy.

Thankfully, I was introduced to the simple (not easy) practice of ‘staying present’. Although I didn’t get the hang of it right away, I understood its potential to change my life.

Since then, I've devoted the past 13 years to learning this tool as deeply as I can - not only to vastly improve my own life, but to help others improve their lives too. 

Now, I’m sharing the incredible knowledge and wisdom I’ve acquired over the years in a highly curated program designed to bring long lasting results quickly. Because let’s get real - even though I’m grateful for every moment, 13 years is a long time to create change. Instead, I’m going to help you see massive results in just 10 weeks. 

"I generally feel more in-control of my emotions. I know that I can't control what happens externally but I definitely have the tools to manage myself more effectively internally. This just generally helps me show up more positively which makes relationships with others and myself so much easier."

- Corey P.

I'm amazed at how I'm becoming more self aware. This is helping me in so much of life. I am being more patient with myself.

This is just a small part of how this program has impacted my life. Thank you, Kandis.

- Reet G.

"In just a few sessions with Kandis, I was able to see changes in myself and my life in ways I wasn't able to in over a year with my therapist."

Jason R.

"Kandis is UNBELIEVABLE!! Just wow. Kandis somehow manages to make my perceived problems seem so simple.

The best advice I have for you, only if you’re ready to change your life, of course... is RUN, don’t walk - straight to her.

I promise - she can help you."

- Christine A.

"I would definitely highly recommend the course. Kandis was very informative, professional and a joy to be around. 

I looked forward to every session as to what we'd be discussing and getting together with such a fun, open minded , non judgemental group."

- Dani R.

Kandis created an inviting and comfortable space for this course in which to share, learn and create a toolkit for helpful 'tools'. I loved the dynamic activities Kandis included to make sure each class was resonating for everyone in a variety of ways.

- Jenn L.

"But Kandis, How can I be sure this will Work for Me?"

I get this question a lot. 

If you're like most of my clients when they come to me, you've tried a lot of things in the past and you haven't seen results. Do any of the following feel true for you? 

  • You've been seeing a therapist or a counsellor - but at times you wonder if they're even helping you because little has changed in your life. (click here to see my views on traditional talk therapy)
  • Maybe you've read, like, a million self help books but they don't deliver lasting results.
  • Your life situation is so full of stressful events that you just don't see how this could actually help, if the events around you don't (or can't) change. 
  • You feel hopeless because you've felt like this for so long, it's hard for you to believe things could actually be different.

I get it - because I've been in all of those situations. Books were great in theory (I've read a ton of them), but I didn't know how to apply them. And who could I ask my questions to?

I had also tried therapy. In 2016, I was struggling with PTSD from a near-death experience. So I hired a therapist. After two sessions, she said to me, "Kandis, you've got all the tools. What you've studied (applications of mindfulness) over the past few years is everything you need. You just need to apply these things to your own life. I'm happy to have you come back, but I don't think I can be much help." 

That's right, my own therapist, who I was paying $200+ per session for, fired me because she felt I already had all the tools I needed. 
Thankfully, it did help me apply my own learnings and I overcame the PTSD symptoms within weeks. WEEKS I tell you!! 

And the tools I used then are the same tools I'm going to show you how to use in this program. Yes, you can read books and more books, and study with the monks in Thailand, get your applied mindfulness certification at the University, and become a Neuro Linguistic Practitioner like I've done  - But why would you?! I have spent over $15k in trainings and 13 years of my life to get here. 

And now, I've put together all the most important pieces from all modalities I've learned to create a succinct program to get you the best results in the least amount of time. 

So... how do you know this will work? 

Here's the thing... what you've been doing in the past hasn't worked, has it? Of course not, or you wouldn't be here. 

If you want to see massive positive change in your life, you've got to try something new. Because what you've been doing, isn't working.

The skills you'll learn are part of an ancient practice, dating back thousands of years, that neuroscientists have proven time and time again have powerful positive effects on brain function, allowing you to literally rewire your brain to experience more positive feelings and emotions and handle all of life's challenges with more ease.

So, how do you know this will work? Because it's been proven. Over and over again for thousands of years. 


*DISCLAIMER: I am not a registered doctor, therapist or counsellor. I DO believe there is value in these services (hence why I hired one) and you should always seek professional medical advice if you are experiencing severe mental (or physical) health symptoms. 

  "In just a few sessions with Kandis, I was able to see changes in myself and my life in ways I wasn't able to in over a year with my therapist."

This just generally helps me show up more positively which makes relationships with others and myself so much easier."
