Get inspiration for existential crisis management & vision for your revolutionary growth spurt


Sara YamtichHello! I’m Sara Yamtich. I’m one part healer and one part activator, one part truth-seeker and one part soul-alchemist. I’m the secular priestess of your revolutionary growth spurt.

It’s probably easiest to just call me a life coach, but I aim to be so much more than that. My specialty is working with people who have unconventional minds, insatiable curiosity, and unwavering drive.

People who are intense, complex, driven. The dreamers and idealists who want to get sh*t done.

I’m not necessarily saying that you’ve got the kind of brain that publishes the next bestseller, drafts a peace agreement, discovers a particle, or finds the largest prime number (although I’d love to talk to you, even if you did). I’m talking about a certain kind of personality that sees humor where others don’t, tragedy where others are tranquil, beauty in the ordinary, and a dullness in the standard. That’s where I come in. My greatest gift is my ability to empathically understand and inspire unique minds.

You’re immobilized by all your potential trajectories?

I can bring you focus.


You can practically taste your success, but you don’t know how to get there?

I can help close the gap between who you are now and who you want to become.


In a nutshell, I can help you rise to the occasion to be your best self.

I can help you start your {r}evolution.

Here I go getting all meta on y’all, but as it turns out my dharma (simply put, a yogic word for “life’s purpose”) is to work with you to unearth your purpose and inspire your self-actualization and inner-badassery.

Why trust me?

Well, I’ve done some pretty cool things on paper. I have Bachelor’s of Arts in Anthropology and Gender Studies and a Master of Social Work. I’ve worked with victims, survivors, and perpetrators of violence. And I hustled the hallways of government for six years at the national policy level. It was exactly what I thought I should be doing with my life. Like, who wouldn’t want to rise to the top of the bureaucratic ladder, finding herself on calls with the White House? That’s what an intelligent and ambitious woman is supposed to do… right?

But at my core, that whole time, I felt different. I was always seeking more. And bureaucracy was slowly killing me.

Somehow, paradoxically, I was bored out of my mind at the same time that I was stressed to my max. I felt like I was always on the precipice of something bigger, some dream not yet fulfilled. So I spent a lot of time outside of work grasping at meaning everywhere I could – meditation, yoga, travel, drinking wine – all of the things I loved. And still love!

And finally, after all that serious soul searching, I made a decision to change everything. I made a bold decision, and I took the plunge. I quit my fancy policy job, sold all my belongings, and drove my car across the country to California.
And it was the best decision of my life.

Now I use all the knowledge and experience I’ve soaked up in my myriad professions — as well as my…

  • life coach training and certification
  • degrees in Anthropology, Gender Studies, and Social Work
  • yoga teacher certification and meditation training
  • training in Nonviolent Communication
  • independent research on gifted theory

… to take my clients through a deep process of self-understanding and acceptance, so they can live the life they were born to live.

I want to help you change your world – the way you and I both know you’re meant to.
