Learn how to care for yourself while in relationship with an addict. Break the chains of your painful patterns by tending to your own truth.

This 6-week healing journey into your sweet soul begins 12/xx

Yes, I'm ready.


I've been right where you're at, honey. You've given a lot to this person, this humxn you love, this humxn who is struggling with addiction. Some days you wonder if you've given too much. Some days you're deathly afraid you haven't given nearly enough. But you're emptying out. Your well, that energy flow (your life force!) which always felt so full and overflowing, is now low. So low. Too low.

Maybe you're just noticing that you've forgotten (or never really known) how to care for yourself. How to put yourself on your own priority list. You know how to over give (ancestral shit) and frankly, you're over it.

You have your own stuff too. Maybe you struggle with feeling worthy or good enough or that you have the support of the universe (or even just your friends and family). Maybe you overwork or numb out to Netflix or stay so busy that you can't possibly slow down to hear and see yourself. . . something you dearly want from others.

And maybe things feel ok, manageable, maybe even still good. You get flickers of hope in this relationship. . .every time you're at the end of your rope you get reeled back in.

Then you're back in the rhythm of //

  • making excuses for their behavior
  • not wanting to fight about it so you give in
  • keeping score
  • using manipulation as a tool because "normal" communication gets you nowhere
  • feeling self-righteous because you've done some inner work and it feels imbalanced
  • feeling exhausted and crushed from the broken promises
  • walking on eggshells because who knows what version of them you'll get
  • stuffing down your emotions because IT'S FINE

The slow whittling down of yourself to meet this other persxn who's so beautiful, so much potential, so saveable. You can taste how sweet it could be if they would just change.

It's a struggle because you're smart and aware and yet you can't figure out how to fix this.

Truth is, you can't. Not even if you're the best fixer.

But there's something you can do. And it's you.


I did this work and it saved me. The humxn I loved? He's now my husband, 7 years sober, and we're 14 years into this wild experiment of loving and living.

I don't promise any marriage or miraculous recovery.

I promise to show you what I know.
How I learned to fill up with grace, self-love and trust. How I learned wholeness.
It's what I've taught hundreds of humxns.

It's what got me through the toughest times when I didn’t even know myself anymore. Which, in essence, was the miracle I needed even more than my partner's sobriety.

Then you can take that new language and create your life with intention, courage, and a new way of loving yourself and others.

Whatever you do with that is up to you, but I’d love to show you the way forward (with a broken heart as the ever-wise Alice Walker reminds us.)

We can do this,


▲ For six weeks, you'll be held in a sacred container where transformation of your oldest patterns will be possible. You'll cross a threshold and emerge changed.

I'll be your guide, coach, cheerleader, road dog, champion. I have no designs for you △ my work is to help you stand in your tender and ferocious power, returning to grace and self-love.

▲ I bring together mindset mastery and profoundly tender soul exploration to grow your self-awareness, engage tested tools of transformation, and change lives.

Over a decade ago, I looked up and realized that I didn't know myself anymore. I was lost in a swirl of work (as a political organizer), partying, people-pleasing, and over-extending myself ▽ My inner critic was always busy and I was hurting.

▼ The fact that my partner was descending into his own addictions was just a part of the whole swirl. His addiction to drinking and drugs. My addiction to the busy-ness.

I prayed to the universe for support ▽ And I found it in the incredible guidance of a group of womxn who showed me how to diligently work with my mindset, my emotions, and my energy.

▼ All of a sudden, I could see myself. I could see my power. I could see where I'd given it away and resisted it.

My journey wasn't a mystery, it was unconscious story-telling and a stagnant survival-mode... so, I learned how to wake up and tell different stories that affirmed me rather than depleting me. That supported clarity and joy even through painful times.

I learned how to release victim// martyr// savior and embrace a life of magic, true appreciation, and vision. This is all teachable and learnable.


You'll learn (or peel back even more layers on) the big WHY you're stuck in these relationship patterns, how to break the psychic chains, and vision what you really want for yourself and your relationships.

We'll practice the skills and techniques you need to grow while truly supporting and centering your own mental// physical// emotional// spiritual well-being (guilt-free!), and you'll cultivate the know-how to put it all into aligned action.


For six weeks, the group will meet weekly for ~90 minutes of live coaching in an online, private, sacred portal.

the portal

You'll get homework assignments emailed to you to support the work we do in the group. Each class will be recorded and posted in our private portal. The content will be released weekly via email to make sure you have time to integrate each session. You will also have the opportunity to submit questions for the live classes even if you can't make it.


This is not the entirety of the curriculum. I love to tune into the energetic signature of the group and respond to what I hear being asked for. Every week there's homework, guided visualizations, journaling prompts, live Q&A, in-class exercises and more.







You also get a morning and evening guided meditation to bookend your day and support you in creating a sacred container for your healing journey.


  • You feel stagnant in your healing process. You’ve been doing the work but know there are deeper levels you need some guidance to access.
  • You’re aware of the many thought/emotional/behavioral patterns you have and you’re ready to move that awareness into ACTION.
  • You are tired of doing it alone and are craving support in your healing. (Or you're realizing your current support system needs an upgrade.)
  • You know it's time to release old programs and limiting beliefs from your consciousness.
  • You want to understand and communicate your emotions clearly, without shame or guilt.
  • You feel curious, open, and willing to show up for yourself and your transformation.
  • You desire the support of a community who is likewise tuned into growth and healing.
  • You're in a relationship with an addict (partner, friend, parent, sibling, etc) and you're ready for some support for your own journey.
  • You're ready for some support for your own journey...you're ready to come back home to yourself.


  • You're looking for a quick fix. This is more a "become the awesome truth of who you really are over time" approach to healing.
  • You hope to learn/grow by osmosis. This program is not passive...it will require you to show up.
  • If you're honest with yourself, you have zero intention of slowing down. Inner work requires it. You def don't have to stop your life, but you will have to get more still to hear yourself.
  • You aren’t ready to take responsibility for what you're creating. You gotta stop the blame game & giving your power away.
  • You need a high level of individual support.

Beloved, it's so ok if this isn't for you. It doesn't mean you're not on your path. It means that you're choosing something else right now — so make sure you fully understand that choice and that it's yours (not someone else's choice for you).


How much time do I need to set aside for the course?

You can take this course at your own pace. You have lifetime access to the materials (as long as the course is up and runnin’)! However, if you want to take advantage of the 3 months of guided coaching, I recommend devoting at least 3 hours per week to the course. This includes the suggested daily practices.

Do you offer a guarantee?

Yep! I offer a 100% money back guarantee. I ask that you complete a specific amount of the course homework and send it to me. If after doing this work you are dissatisfied with the materials in any way, or you find that it’s not the right time, we will refund you. You have 30 days from when registration closes to request a refund. Full details are in the refund link at the bottom of this page.

How do you support students as they work through the content?

I offer six live Q&As during the 3-month course. These rich Q&As are your time to get individualized attention and group coaching. And in addition to that, I show up in the private facebook group to answer questions, give thought-provoking prompts, go live as I’m inspired to share, and giving you even more opportunities to connect and move through whatever is coming up. There’s also the option to upgrade to 2 additional 60-min private coaching sessions (which here, is less than the cost of 1 private coaching session with me).

How long do I have access to the course?

You have access to the course for the life of the program as long as it’s up and running! That means that you can retake the course with me whenever I offer it, and have access to any updated material that I include.

Can I go at my own pace with the work?

100%. You can absolutely go at your own pace with this program. You have access to the courses and materials (worksheets, guided meditations, etc) in the student portal. Every life group coaching will be recorded and posted the next day they happen in the student portal.  If you can’t make it to all or any of the groups, you’ll be able to get that potent engagement through the replay — I’ve had many students tell me how beneficial it’s been to make time and rewatch the group coaching time.

Extra integration time may be needed to process the shifts and transformative guidance of this course. It’s different for everyone. You can skip a week and come back when you’re feeling ready. You can buy the course and come back to it when you are ready and have the time and space for it (forever access won’t always be a bonus!). Or you can join every week — whatever feels right to you. I’ll keep up momentum with a suggested pace, but you’ll find your groove.

Do I need any special kind of tools/software/apps/technology to participate?

Nerp! Just access to the internets. And a journal that you can carry around with you to write in and something to write with. I’ll host the live group coaching calls in Zoom — a free, web-based video platform — where you’ll just have to click on the link I send you to join. And every replay will be in the student portal. Easy peasy.

I won’t be able to attend all the sessions live/I don't use facebook, will I miss out on anything?

All good. All the live group coaching calls will be recorded and posted in the student portal for you to access at your convenience. Of course, there’s magic in joining live but you will absolutely be able to feel the container of group support even if you are experiencing the videos at a later time. And you can pre-submit questions to me so I can answer and you can get the teachings when you watch the replay. As for facebook — it’s an additional support tool, but not a critical part of the program.

What is the schedule for this program?

You’ll receive 12 weeks of email guidance midwifing you through the course at a suggested pace. You have lifetime access and can return again and again to any part of the work. Our LIVE group Q&As are currently alternating Sundays at 9:30am PT. Replays are always available within 24 hours.

Dana, I’ve been working on myself and have tried what feels like damn-near everything. How do I know this will work for me??

This work is unique and it will go DEEP if you let it. If you show up, do all the work, and engage with the weekly homework assignments and daily practices, you will receive exactly what you need from this. The extent and amount of the change (and clarity) you receive totally depends on your willingness, availability, and presence. This work works if you work it.

What if I have another question that isn't here?

No problemo! Just email me at dana@danabalicki.com and ask away! I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

"i HATE TO ADMIT IT, BUT I guess I just don't really trust myself..."



  • Having the ability to call in a wildly fulfilling dream of yours and design your entire (yes, entire) life around it.
  • Knowing that if an unexpected life crisis happened, you'd confidently make decisions stemming from your deepest values.
  • Finally getting free from fear of not doing it right, and WAY more courage to be in aligned action.
  • Taking ownership over your decisions, actions, and releasing stuckness from supporting other people's dreams over your own.
  • Slowing down and still being wildly productive. But without the sacrifice, martyrdom, or victimhood...feeling the grace & ease.
  • Name
    Kara Yanagida / light worker - I'm finally giving myself permission to really shape my own path, and to let what needs to rise to the surface, truly manifest, instead of my normal inclination to just jump for whatever pops up first. I'm holding space for myself and committing to myself in an entirely new way, and part of that has been an incredible resurgence of faith in my true self to survive all of the fear and doubt and confusion, and come out even brighter and more full of life on the other side. I feel so much more confident in being able to trust myself now and as I move forward!
  • Name
    Martha Morrison / dancer & entrepreneur - Dana is a compassionate coach who is relentless in helping others find their own clarity. She helped excavate some beliefs that have been holding me back for years and she did so in a way that was empowering because she asked me questions until I heard my own words. Not only was my inner truth revealed to me, but through this process I am re-building my intuition and learning how to hear myself again.

    This course has changed my life and I am confident that I can move towards my big vision with clarity. But the best part? Now I have the tools to actually ENJOY my journey.
  • Name
    Tiffany Calhoun / entrepreneur - My big decisions, at the beginning of the course, created a large fog over my life. In general, my life was good. But, I knew I wasn’t operating at the highest level and that I needed more clarity. The big questions I wanted to get clear don’t seem overwhelming anymore. This is a program that I for see myself using for years ahead as I grow and my life changes. Dana is such a beautiful supportive teacher! The program was monumental in moving stagnant blocks in my life.


  • You don't have a vision — or if you do, you're not sure how to get there.
  • You're so stuck in the life-sucking compare and despair spin cycle.
  • Confusion is your new normal.
  • You can't discern between the voices in your head — one is saying to do this, the other is saying something totally different. Which to trust?
  • You're so stuck in painful, unconscious patterns and feel as if you can't find your way out.


  • You understand your deepest held values and desires at a new level.
  • You know how to take real steps forward to design your life around those values.
  • You know how to distinguish between your ego and your inner guide (those battling voices in your head/heart).
  • All that unconscious gunk is being cleared out...you know how to slow down, tune in, and do the inner work.
  • Your sense of purpose is so much clearer. Self-trust is becoming your natural way of being.


My greatest growth has always come from rich support on individual and collective levels and in programs where there was a balance of direct guidance, accountability, community, and work at my own pace. Here are the details of the sacred container of support that I've designed for you.

Live Group Calls

You’ll have a chance to ask me your biggest burning questions during our bi-monthly live calls in the group. If you can't make a call, you can presubmit questions. If you miss a call, replays are always sent out within 24 hours!

Private Class Forum

You’ll be supported by a peer community inside a private forum/group where you can share questions, insights, wins, and irl struggles. You're not alone on your path, beloved.


You'll receive a weekly check-in email with additional guidance and support around the program. Every lesson is accompanied by homework assignments (I'm big on homework...I mean, you are your home! Who else gon' do the work?).

Just to be clear this is NOT a 1:1 coaching program. Yes, I believe in the power of individualized attention (and I'll do my best to support your journey in all the ways I can)...and the collective wisdom and compassion of the group is wildly TRANSFORMATIVE. In all of this you'll find your own rhythm.

  • Name
    Rohini Walker / writer + creator of Luna Arcana - I'm no newcomer to focused spiritual and emotional work and healing practices; but despite my years of experience, I had been feeling pretty consistently 'stuck' and 'blocked' for a while. I was ready to roll my sleeves up and get down to some intense inner work but I was feeling overwhelmed, confused and bewildered about where to begin.

    The insight, presence and authentic love with which Dana has facilitated and guided me into making the deep, deep shifts I have experienced over the months working with her leaves my heart singing with gratitude.
  • Name
    Luke Simon / healer - The work I did with Dana was an exploratory deep dive into my innermost self in such a beautiful way that allowed me to honestly see myself in a nonjudgmental way for the first time in my life.

    By the time we had completed our work together I had found a greater sense of self and a true connected partnership with the universe.

Clarity isn't something you trip over and it doesn't fall out of the sky (if it does, it's likely someone else's clarity/vision...so keep your eyes open, sugar). It has to be cultivated. You have to MAKE ROOM for it. You have to believe it's possible. You have to believe that you deserve it.

There's likely a handful of things keeping you from the clear vision and fulfilling life you most desire. I've made it my business — literally, it's why I'm here on the planet — to support you on this journey.

When you heal the earth heals. We have work to do. Are you ready, my love? I am.

  • Name
    Life Escobar / storyteller, filmmaker, photographer - Dana helped me re-discover my light and with her I went on a radial journey of learning to love myself once again. Dana lovingly helped me re-write my story of who I am. She helped me see the stories that had unconsciously been running the show of my life for 20 years.

    I can now say that I deeply believe in my own worth, my power, and my capacity to create change, both for myself and for the world. Dana is the real deal, doing transformative healing work that our world needs.
  • Name
    Kalisa Augustine / energy artist - It was time for the next chapter of my life and I could not afford to be blindsided by my own sneaky, self sabotage. I wanted to hold myself accountable, and bring to light any issues hindering my ability to manifest. Working with Dana provided illumination.

    I was able to confront deeply held beliefs, in all areas of my life, that were holding me back. During that time my personal transformation was exponential, and I would recommend it to others ready to take on their own lives.



I help people like you, ever-evolving souls looking for clarity, confidence, and courage, so they can live a life of purpose and deep connection.

Years ago (*cough*eleven*cough*), I was burnt out and confused about how to align my life with what was most important to me, until I started slowing down and listening to my soul, my body, my truth.

I asked the universe for support and received it in the form of amazing humxns (Rha Goddess & JLove Calderon, David Gershon & Gail Straub just to name a few) who taught me (and held me through) the transformational work I now teach.

Now I live in the beautiful California desert where I get to be warm (key soul desire), do the work I'm here on the planet to do, surrounded by rich, loving relationships, and all with ease and grace.

I can’t wait to help you do it too (the whole connect-with-your-soul thing...not the crazy-desert-living thing...I mean, unless that's the dream!).

  • Name
    Betsy Devine / Entrepreneur - I approached Dana as a business owner in crisis: “I have no idea what I am doing”… “I am not sure this is what I should be doing"...

    There is the way I saw the world and myself before Dana, and then there is now. The change is gracefully subtle, compassionate, and full of groundbreaking spirit – just like her. The work for me was a perfect combination of mind-bending big ideas and the small steps we can take to move towards them. This is life changing work, and Dana is an exceptional and rare spirit guide. I often wonder if a person has had a more profound impact on my life.
  • Name
    Dusty Diekman / Operations Director - I found Dana at a time when I desperately needed help breaking unhealthy relationship patterns and refocusing on personal growth. Her ability to facilitate meaningful self-discovery and inspire authentic, positive change is nothing short of magnificent.

    I went in frantically looking for help and walked away calmly with healthy personal boundaries, unfettered confidence in my abilities, and a new, genuine love for my mind, body and soul.

Any Q's I haven't covered? Drop me a line and I'll get right back to you!
