Live Your Best Life

Welcome to Sanguine Collective, a Community for Wildhearted Souls

If you’re thinking,

“There’s more to life than this” — I invite you to meet me in a place where every day is a gift. I can help you discover the more within yourself, to go beyond the to-dos, to take care of yourself and connect, communicate and collaborate with others.

Close your eyes, take a deep breath and listen to this invitation from Chrissy Gruninger

The Missing Manual

Hello dear friend,

You’ve been at this for awhile, and with each new life stage comes new and surprising challenges. It can sometimes feel like we should already know what we’re doing with this many years of experience under our belts. If we were honing a skill — baking, bike riding, basket-weaving, bassoon-playing — and had 40 years of practice, we’d be pretty darn good at it, right? But being human is complex — as we grow up, our identity shifts and evolves, and the skills we thought we’d honed may or may not serve us.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a manual for all of this?

Or our own dedicated tour guide?

A map to guide us around the twists and turns, to help us navigate the new decades and transitions that are sometimes harder than we thought they’d be? There are all sorts of issues that come along with career, shifting responsibilities, our evolving sense of self, or just the simple act of getting out of bed in the morning — the list goes on.

By becoming a member of Sanguine Collective, I can’t promise that adulting will suddenly seem easy, but I can promise it will feel a little less alone (you are not an island!) and not only will you be supported by me, when you join at the group level, there’s a very good chance that you’ll find someone who can share how she navigated just the sort of challenge you’re facing right now…or that you’ll get to be that person for someone else.

As a member of Sanguine Collective, you’ll continue on the path of learning to…


who you are and where you are … to finally feel good in body, mind and spirit


what living a fulfilling, meaningful life means to YOU


ways to manage the complications, confusion and chaos


that sometimes you will feel like there’s a dark cloud overhead … and learn how to find the light to create a rainbow


daily practices that help you savor each day … even when life goes awry


how to live life on your own terms and show up in a real, wildhearted way

I firmly believe that no matter where you live — no matter where you are in your life — you can always choose to be sanguine. Essentially, it’s about making conscious choices and taking action. I’m in no way trying to imply that it’s easy to do; we so often get in our own way, and trying circumstances can be difficult to work through. It all comes back to mindset — and that’s where I can help coach you through those areas where you’re getting tripped up.

To collaborate on a deeper level means the world to me. I believe in the exchange of energy, and when you support the work I do by choosing to work with me or joining my Patreon community, I’m able to give so much more in return. And not just back to you, but to my team and my community, creating ripples of abundance and support throughout our ecosystem.

What sort of energy do you want to put out into the world? Can I help?

Your Questions, My Answers

Q: What’s my commitment if I join?

A: Once you’ve joined us, you can ALWAYS opt out. While it will make me sad to lose you and I do hope you’ll choose to stick around, if what I share isn’t resonating with you or supporting you in living your ONE beautiful life, I will understand.

Q: Who is this for?

A: You! You are searching for more — more mindset exploration, well-being, more tools and tips on handling the challenges you face or will face, more community (my Facebook group will be an amazing spot for inspiration and active mindset shifting), more movement towards living a happy, healthy, and harmonious life – a sanguine life.

A: There’s a little something for everyone at each level:

Q: Why the switch to Patreon?

A: This work is my livelihood, and I want to continue providing you with excellent, well-crafted wellness and well-being guidance and support, but in order to do that, I also need to support myself with a roof over my head and food in the fridge. Your support will allow me to create even more content to share with you and really engage in the way I’ve always hoped to. I believe that this content and support has value, and if you feel the same way, I’ll see you on Patreon!

What people have said about working with Chrissy

“I loved the sensitivity, authenticity and wisdom that Chrissy brought to the program, especially the way she responded to everyone’s posts. Her communication style is so supportive and inspiring. She also has great counseling skills and is well grounded in yoga, which helped me trust in her as a leader and in the content she created for the course.



“Chrissy’s challenge gave me the opportunity to look deep within myself, allowing me to explore different ways to make positive changes to my life, in a community of like minded individuals…where we could share, support and encourage each other..all the while, receiving such caring words of encouragement and valuable advice from Chrissy.”


United Kingdom

“Before the challenge I didn’t have alot of self esteem. During the challenge I enjoyed interacting with Chrissy & fellow group members. I also enjoyed learning more about how to lead a positive life.”



“Thanks Chrissy for this true gem. During the course I learned so much that I’ve been able to apply to my life, personally and professionally. How to be happy from within, treat others with kindness and respect and to be sure to treat myself with the same kindness and respect as well. A journey everyone should experience!!”



“My aha was, no matter how dull my life felt on any given week, the program nudged me to think about the good things that happened that week. Lo and behold, there were several good things/opportunities for which I was grateful that happen each week. Maybe it is just the little things, but strung together they make up a pretty rich life.”



“I would highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to improve their life, i have struggled with depression and Chrissy’s advice was exceptional, I will keep on practising to live a happier and more mindful life. Thank you.”



“Working with Chrissy and participating in the Inherent Harmony program has helped me gain a new perspective on things that I perceive to be negative in my life. This shift in perspective has helped me approach challenges and negative aspects with a new mindset to not dwell which allows me to focus my energy on positive, beneficial aspects of my life. I would highly recommend Inherent Harmony for anyone who is interested in self-development and finding a more peaceful way to exist in the world.”



Through meaningful connection, we empower each other to live our ONE beautiful life.
