My name is Christy Diane Farr and I am The Unruly Woman. It is my mission to prepare others to travel lightly through what lies ahead by releasing attachment to things and old wounds. I am thrilled you are here! Please do stay connected.
How can I help?
The Unruly Woman is both my heart’s work and my full-time job. My workshops and private sessions take place by phone, Skype, email, and (for the phone-loathing introvert among us) instant message. I also hold space for an ever-expanding community of Unrulies to connect and support one another online and in-person in Minneapolis, Minnesota. You can learn much more about the work that I do over here in my blog.
"Christy never fails to amaze me. Thank you for being here on the planet, listening to your voices and encouraging us to do the same." - Kat Alessi
Professional Bio (which I find utterly boring)
What’s “normal” feels too formal and doesn’t capture the most powerful parts of my story. Yes, I have a degree. Yes, I went to school to learn to be a life coach. Yes, I’m a published writer, I belong to relevant professional organizations, and I’ve collaborated with oodles of extraordinary women over the last nine years.
And sure, these statistics are important but only in that they represent the experiences that carried me home to the truth of who I am. These are but a handful of the many pieces woven into the fabric of life and frankly, I prefer to collaborate with those who want to know about my unruly bits because that is what makes it possible for me to do this thing I do.
Unruly Bio (the important stuff!)
What makes me The Unruly Woman? It’s the same as what makes you Unruly. You are unlike the others. You rebel against convention. You care more about doing what’s true than what society says you “should” be doing. You not only dance to the beat of your own drum, you probably built it with your own hands.
The ache to live your truth consumes you. I understand all of this because it’s my truth, too. You can read more about this approach in my book "Is Home Your Happy Place?" Here is what moves me:
Traveling lightly enough to say yes when the world whispers my name
A deep commitment to living The Invitation with The Beautiful One
Stumbling through the transition to mother of grown children who are absolutely thriving in their autonomy
Reading and writing, learning and sharing (on repeat)
Ending violence, especially systemic violence against Black, Indigenous, People of Color
Enjoying this planet in all of its majestic seasons
