Meet Your Host, Kris Franken

I’m Kris, a Byron Bay local, published author, meditation teacher, spiritual mentor, energy healer and intuitive guide.


I hold space for women to heal and step into the wildest, most luminous version of themselves.


I love inspiring and empowering others to live an abundant, blissful, intuitive and purposeful life.


I’m looking forward to connecting with you In Byron Bay where we can heal, restore, and play in paradise.

Kris holds such a loving container and space for us all to expand our minds and hearts. Every time we meet I am reminded of the power of sitting in a sacred circle and being held with so much love. Kris’ meditations and healings always leave me feeling lighter and connected to my heart.
As a unique guide and mentor, Kris operates in such a way where she breathes life into the legacy of others. She guides intuitively, gently and thoughtfully from a place of otherworldly wisdom. She is kind with her encouragement, generous with her knowledge and wholeheartedly invested in the spiritual wellbeing of others.
