On Growing: Thoughts from the Field
By Kyla Mitsunaga
After her mom’s early onset dementia diagnosis in the
fall of 2016, Kyla fell into a deep depression. How could this
be? She was a Global Happiness coach. She had delivered
her signature Happiness Workshop in 16 countries across
3 continents. If anyone knew anything about happiness, it
was surely her.
Desperate to heal her depression naturally and find
some answers, she quits her job as a professor in Korea
and decides to take a year off and in. As the year draws to a
close, she meets a mysterious energy healing practitioner
in Bali who would change her life for good.
From the tranquil retreat space in Bali, to the frenetic
streets of Mumbai, to a sweat lodge in Costa Rica, Kyla’s
search for happiness takes her on an unexpected personal
growth journey over a three-year span. Join Kyla as she
walks, leaps without looking, and often stumbles through
her on growing journey - an essay at a time - sharing what
she’s learned along the way from the field.
She’s included growth work activities so you can grow
along WITH her every step of the way, too.
Let’s get growing, awesome human!
