Healing Through Inspiration, Growth and Connection. We Are Better Together.

Discover how the experiences of others can help you on your personal journey as you heal physically, spiritually and emotionally by creating a strong balanced life in all the areas that truly matter.

Our Philosophy

The Cairn Method

We believe that building and maintaining balance in life is the key to a truly fulfilled and abudant future.

We like to think of our lives as having a "three legged stool" of sorts. Each leg is just as important as the others in supporting you to heal your wounds and keep you moving out of the darkness and toward the light where you can thrive.

This is NOT about "just pushing through it". Cairn the Load is about building up each leg of your very own stool so that you can take back control, build momentum and put yourself back on top where you belong. Much like putting your very own stone at the top of a cairn.

Let's face it, there are traumas whether recent or even years in the past that will haunt many of us for eternity.

But we can't let these experiences define us, who we are and who we strive to be. Genuine, caring and loving people.

Let Cairn the Load guide you on your journey to take back your life and once again own the very self you were always meant to be.

The Three Legs



Spiritual balance is a key leg in our stool. Healing takes place on a spiritual level. Can you sit still and be present? Meditation, Emotional Healing, Yoga taught from like-minded individuals so you can benefit from hundreds of years of life experience. As you find what works for you and incorporate into your daily life.



Physical Balance is a pivotal leg in our stool. When left unaddressed it can become weak ultimately effecting our Spiritual and Emotional legs. Cairn the Load offer tools that address your physical needs. It is difficult/impossible for our bodies to live in a balanced state. These supplements and online courses when used consistently can give your body the ability to heal from the inside out.



Emotional balance is the leg that holds us all together. Cairn the Load offers resources of experts in their individual fields offering their years of experience in helping individuals acquiring tools that ultimately help them achieve balance. This buffet of emotional tools lets you take the actions that are right for you in your life at this moment... you get to use the cairns as trail markers and as you progress on your own unique, personal pathway to healing

"There is simple beauty in a cairn and the connection it creates with people from the past and from all over the world. It let's us know that we are not alone."

Annette Anderson of Cairn The Load

Don't judge yourself by your past, you don't live there anymore.

If you’ve ever found yourself feeling lost, alone, or like nobody understands why you feel the way that you do. We want to help. There are no perfect paths for healing and there is never a right or wrong answer when it comes to what we should be doing with our life. Yet in this journey of self-discovery, we have learned so much about ourselves and others around us as well as how people think differently than each other. Let Us Help You Find Your Promised Land


Finding Beauty Through The Cracks

What others are saying about Cairn the Load


"These kintsugi bowls are exactly what has helped me to change how I view myself. Instead of seeing myself as broken, I now find it easier to accept and appreciate that every crack gives me value. I am not broken, but I am better than new. I am beautiful. I am art".

Jenn M.

"What a beautifully thought-provoking course! I can really relate to this. After this course, my thoughts on the broken parts of my self have radically changed. They are not weaknesses. They are beautiful".


"WOW! this is wonderful, and I think you can help many people love themselves by mending their shattered pieces. Very inspirational. You two amaze me."

About Us

We help you to become your best version.

Like yours, our path has been filled with various adventures and experiences. Many have been adventures of happiness, while others have been of difficult loss and heartache.

We have spent much of our life searching for Cairns that others have placed on the path before us. These Cairns gave us hope that someone has been there and successfully navigated their own trail.

At various times in our journey healing seemed impossible. We grieved differently, we found ourselves with thoughts of am I crazy or is this hard work worth it when we weren’t sure healing is possible. The pain was real and at times creating a divide between us.

Gratefully, healing has taken place.

Our Podcasts

Have you ever felt alone or like you are the only person who has traveled this lonely road before? Cairns are a means of communicating that someone has been there before you, marked the path, and giving you reassurance – here’s the trail, you’re on the right path! In our lives, we can build our own cairns and contribute to others' cairns by placing a stone on top helping each other through life's journey.
