My NEW BOOK is finally here!

“Filled with forgiveness and love, and a story of rebirth and transformation that recognizes our deepest fears and hurt, and offers a path to healing.”   –John de Graaf, co-author of AFFLUENZA and co-founder of the Happiness Alliance

When Life Blows Up takes the reader on an intimate journey through a devastating public shaming that destroyed my business, countless relationships and even my personal sense of identity. Through the annihilation of who I believed myself to be I discovered the True Self I hadn’t yet met and opened to new opportunities I hadn’t known existed. This book is for anyone experiencing loss, grief, and unexpected life upheaval. It offers proven strategies for:


This is an inspiring guide for moving from breaking down to breaking open, from surviving to thriving. It is for all those phoenixes determined to rise as more peaceful, powerful beings.

“This book can serve as an inspiration for anyone who feels that they can’t possibly get up after life has knocked them down.”  — John Kitzhaber, former Oregon Governor

What Clients Are Saying

Cylvia is a fantastic speaker — energetic, clear, inspirational and deep.  She made such a difference at our event, raising everyone’s energy to a new level.  — John D.

The online training Cylvia led for our organization was a hit!  She is warm and engaging but also sharp and whip-smart.  Highly recommended. — Melanie G.

I can’t recommend Cylvia enough. I started working with her not long after I lost my partner and my career at 51. I had gotten my footing a little bit but was so unclear on what I wanted to do moving forward. Cylvia helped me release fears that were keeping me blocked and clarify the things I really wanted to do moving forward. She helped me to see that the disruption in my life wasn’t just loss but also a chance to open up pieces of myself I hadn’t developed before. — Carol K.

The coaching work we did over the last year had a dramatic impact in my personal and professional growth.  Through the coaching sessions I was able to develop an efficient strategy for planning my goals and implementing those plans.  And even more you helped me understand focus on the present moment in order to face my fears with a positive and realistic perspective.  I also thank you for the guidance in getting started with meditation and prayer as tools to get in contact with my emotions and, likewise understand them and use them to grow.  With your help I was able to create a new organization devoted to creating horizontal leadership within the Latino community, to participate in historical change of political regime in my country and find a new job that fulfills my immediate needs and expectations.  Thank you Cylvia for all your support. – Eduardo C

During a time of unfathomable duress in your life, you reached into my troubled waters and pulled me ashore. You were entirely concerned and caring about my situation.  You helped me. I don’t know of another soul in the world that could have done this and made such a positive difference in my life, than you.   — Allyson M

For many of us the COVID experience has pared us down, peeled back layers, and honed us in on values and priorities.  For me during this time of isolation from society at-large, I’ve come to more deeply appreciate simple human connection. I live in a quiet neighborhood at the end of a cul-de-sac [...]
