I’m Briana Borten and I’m here to teach you how to create a vision for your life that inspires you and helps you to recognize that everything you need, you have within you.
Everything I do is inspired by my purpose: to create more peace in the world by seeding it with more peaceful people.
No one thing is going to solve your challenges or make you feel peaceful because we have our crazy minds, we have our aching bodies, and our longing for meaning. We are complex creatures, which is why I have committed to making a wide variety of resources for people to find their way home to themselves and a greater sense of peace.
My work has grown steadily outward from the tangible to the intangible layers that help us find peace. From tending to people’s bodies with treatments and products in our spas, to helping people actualize their goals, manage their minds, and consciously choose their thoughts and beliefs through programs and tools like the Dreaming and Planning Course, The Well Life book, and the Dreambook and Planner.
Next came nourishing the spirit and helping people connect back to themselves with Rituals for Transformation and our guided meditations (if I could only pick one tool for you to use to create peace, meditation would be it).
Ultimately my commitment to help create peace took me to the most intrinsic layer, accessing energy and creating connection to something larger than ourselves. This is the work I’m most inspired by and personally involved in through my Soul Sessions and Love Rising groups.
Stepping into this work was such a surprise twist. I was really resistant at first as this nagging knowing kept guiding me towards energy work.
It turns out that Love Rising is my favorite work so far. This is the layer where we can really get perspective and become attuned to what’s trying to come through us, where our actions can become aligned with our inner divinity. Often once this aspect of our lives is nurtured, the rest can find its way. It’s been powerfully transformational for me and the individuals who have participated.
Now I want to reach even more people. In Love Rising I’m connecting with people all over the world, which has inspired me to extend the reach of this work through our Coaching Training Program that intersect with our non-profit, The Well Life Foundation.
The Coaching Program trains people to become Well Life Coaches who can guide people toward creating a life that feels inspired, meaningful, and joyful through powerful processes, strategies for success, and heart opening conversation.
Our Foundation then works with coaches that have graduated the Coaching program to lead personal development workshops for women in transition to help empower them to see an inspiring vision for their life and create a structure to bring it into their daily lives that helps them achieve their goals.
Everything I do is driven by my desire to help you not only reach your tangible goals, but to feel deeply fulfilled. I want you to have peace, freedom and connection to be who you really are and the purpose you are here to serve. I believe in you with all my heart and I’ve poured my love into the tools to help you access your highest potential.
We can really be beacons of light, even in the darkness, for ourselves, others and the world.
Briana Borten is a wellness entrepreneur and peace engineer who inspires people to live extraordinary, healthy lives and create what they want.
Briana learned early on that she was capable of creating her own destiny. When she was 18, she broke her neck in a debilitating car accident. It derailed her college career, but she unexpectedly discovered the power of positivity and the profound rehabilitative benefits of massage and energy work. She attended massage school and established a busy private practice in Portland. But she yearned to create an environment where clients could have a more comprehensive and transcendent healing experience. This came to fruition when, at age 23, she opened The Dragontree Holistic Day Spa.
Meanwhile, Briana attended California College of Ayurveda and graduated as a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist. This training and the following years of treating patients stoked her deepening love affair with assisting others to reach their full potential.
This work has led to her opening two additional spa locations; creating a program to help people achieve their life dreams; speaking and writing extensively on personal development; formulating a product line that embodies the Dragontree’s principles and aesthetic; creating a non-profit to empower women to create lives they are inspired by; and (her favorite passion project) leading transformational group energy programs with Love Rising.
In her playtime, Briana is family girl who loves to plan, create, and celebrate. She’s a huge cuddler and enjoys Sunday morning cuddle time with her amazing daughters, Sabina and Sailor, and her sweet husband, Peter. She loves swimming in natural bodies of water, hiking in the Rocky Mountains, dancing with friends (and alone), dinner parties, natural medicine, holidays, salted caramels, hip-hop music, design and decor.
Briana and Peter are looking forward to building a gathering space on their land in Boulder where they’ll be able to host gatherings and workshops involving meditation, ceremony, ritual and lots of dancing.
