About Me

Kim Childs

Greetings! I’m a certified life and career coach specializing in Positive Psychology (aka the “science of happiness”), creativity and soulful living. I’m also a writer,  Kripalu yoga teacher, and facilitator of transformational workshops, including The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity. A graduate of the GetAttachment.aspxUniversity of Pennsylvania, I have additional training from Whole Being Institute with Tal Ben-Shahar, Positive Acorn with Robert Biswas-Diener,  Deep River Facilitator Training with Abby Seixas, and Coaches Training Institute. Prior to becoming a coach and teacher, I spent a decade reporting and producing in the National Public Radio system in New York and NCIPP badgeew Jersey. In 1999, life called me elsewhere, to live and train at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. It was the start of a career that fits me like a glove and makes my heart sing! Ready to go for your dreams, too? Please contact me for a complimentary coaching consultation! I see life and career coaching clients from all over the Boston area in my Arlington, MA, office and from around the world via phone and Skype.

Kim and Majak

Me and Majak Buoi, a member of the Boston area South Sudanese community

I live in the Boston area and spend a lot of time on Cape Cod, where I grew up. When I’m not working, I love to sing, chant, drum, travel and walk the Minuteman Bikeway. I’ve written for Chicken Soup for the Soul, Natural Awakenings magazine, Wholebeing Institute, Kripalu Center and my own blog, A Pilgrim on the Path. I’ve also volunteered with South Sudanese Enrichment for Families, an organization that’s helped the “Lost Boys and Girls” of South Sudan to start new lives and families in the Boston area. As Swami Kripalu once said, “The whole world is one family.”
