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

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

"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

Spiritual

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.

About Us

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 thoughts turned from will I ever find peace… to what if we could help one person find courage, hope and a realization that they are not alone.

We felt like there must be others that feel some of these same feelings of confusion and fear that we felt.

We claim no special understanding or wisdom.  Our experience comes from life's lessons.  We believe that experience is life's greatest teacher. Maya Angelou said, "We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty."

We have been able to look backward to see beauty in the changes and struggles that propelled us to where we are today.

Come join us in the journey of our lifetime.  As we share in one another's wisdom, the parts of many, create great strength, vision, and clarity in our own life's journey.

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.

Our Videos

We invite you to join us as my husband Mark and I discuss different aspects of our healing journey.  We also periodically interview some experts in a variety of healing arts.
