Receive personalized inspiration for cultivating greater balance and resilience…

Working with Tracy

Whether working with me individually or in online courses or retreats, you will find supportive and transformational spaces that encourage a reimagining of your relationship to yourself and life.

This work integrates eco-psychology, flow/holistic peak performance, shamanism and somatic embodiment into a system I developed called Elemental Energetics. In other words, coaching with me involves a deep dive into how you be and do life — how you think, feel, dream, create, align, connect, process, and manage resources, energy, and stress. 

With nearly 20 years as a coach, I bring with me a large toolkit filled with a blend of the mystical, the practical and the cutting-edge. 

Resources to help you reconnect with your inner wisdom and unique design. Tools to reduce stress, feel your emotions, set healthy boundaries, find flow, and explore what is of Nature and wild in you. Processes to activate your creativity, align mind and body, and cultivate greater resourcefulness and resilience under pressure. 

Mostly though, I genuinely care about you living out your highest vision for your life and for this planet and am committed to being a fierce ally along the way.

Here are some ways that we can work together…


Those who coach with me individually seek support in sharing their gifts with the world in ways that are sustainable, intentional and purpose-driven. Many are recovering over-achievers who are tired of living with the dampening effects of chronic stress and overcommitments and are ready for a more inspired and balanced approach to life and leadership. These are creative people who seek more freedom and flow and who are ready to resolve the internal drivers that have created imbalance, discordance and burnout.

The Elemental Energetics™ coaching modality I've developed provides a mind-body-spirit oriented path to aligning yourself and your life in a way that feels fulfilling, inspiring and true to your nature. This approach puts the heart and soul back into your relationship with work and life. It invites you to consciously redesigning your personal ecosystem so that all aspects of you matter. It's about DOing from your BEing, instead of engaging at the expense of your body, relationships or the planet. It's about the expression of your brilliance in balance.

How does it work? Sessions take place weekly via phone, Zoom, WhatsApp or Skype.


"Tracy has made a huge impact on my personal and professional life. In starting my business, I have been faced with many of my own internal obstacles that "took me out" in the past. Tracy has helped me "get my old self out of the way" so that I can experience success and grow as an individual. She has a wonderful gift in truly sensing what is going on behind the words - just an incredible intuition. She has taught me so much about living on a more spiritual level where my life unfolds to a certain extent versus living according to a rigid plan with my old blinders on. The learnings from my time with Tracy are helping me to enhance not only my business but my personal relationships. I'm so grateful that I know her and can work with her!"
- Kristy Lindquist

"Tracy James is a seriously wise woman. I constantly marvel at the uncanny way she is able to focus on stubborn, locked-in thought and behavior patterns and encourage healing in the kindest, most compassionate way possible. Working with her has helped me gain perspective into myself and the world at large. She's given me access to tools for creativity that I never could have imagined. She's simply amazing."

- Debbie G., Fiction Writer

In my online courses and trainings I seek to create supportive spaces for transformation and emergence. 

Get started by participating in the free mini-course which offers Nature-oriented and practical tools for increasing your experience of balance and resilience in your daily life. The course begins with an Assessment that will offer insight into how you adapt to stress and suggestions for centering and finding greater balance and flow. The course will offer a deeper dive into ways to apply this Nature-based approach to increase your experience of balance, resilience and flow.

In workshops and retreats, we climb mountains together literally and figuratively. From exploring the sacred traditions of the Himalayas to working with indigenous shamans in the Amazon jungle, I have facilitated dozens of transformational retreats around the world helping my clients get outside their comfort zones, reconnect with who they really are and get inspired about who they are becoming. We are blessed in these retreats to steep deeply in Nature and participate in ceremony with wisdom keepers and elders who share their sacred spaces and powerful ancient traditions with us.

I also hold retreats and workshops in the San Francisco Bay area that integrate the power of Nature and the redwoods with processes for deep inner exploration, leadership development, awakening creativity and tools such as shamanic drumming journeys and meditation practice.

If you are seeking to participate in a workshop or retreat or to design a customized leadership or sacred adventure for your group or organization, reach out and let's discuss it.

“This trip has changed my life. I may be returning to Los Angeles to the same job, apartment, friends, etc. but I will return to a new reality of boundless possibilities for my present and future. Thank you so much for giving me the keys to my own kingdom and showing me the way to find strength within myself to go after my dreams with more passion than I have felt in decades.” - Mimi

"Tracy led executives and managers in a powerful workshop of coaching exercises designed to help them create more balance in their lives. The participants were so moved by her that we are planning to bring her back and conduct more workshops for larger audiences within our company!" - Amy S., Capital One

** Due to Covid-19, in-person workshops and retreats are on hold until further notice, all current group work is happening online.

The course begins with an assessment of your current levels of resilience to stress. 

Welcome, Modern Mystic. I’m glad you’ve come to my site. Over the last 17 years, I’ve worked with hundreds of people as a coach and shamanic practitioner. From artists and entrepreneurs to those in the tech and entertainment industries, my clients have come from a wide range of backgrounds and have faced an abundance of challenges in their journeys to authentic and inspired living. I have been honored to be there with them, reminding them to turn within, to open, to listen to the voice of their intuition and higher knowing, to assist them in releasing what held them back. Coaching spiritual seekers in living from their vision, deepest values and heart is the most fulfilling honor. It lights me up and is what I’m here to do.

How does it work? The shamanic energy work/coaching sessions take place weekly via phone or skype. I also hold in-person individual or group retreats and workshops in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as in remote sacred locales like the Amazon jungle or Nepal.

How do you know if you and I are the right fit to work with each other? Well, for starters…

Does this sound and feel like you? You’ve been drawn to spiritual books and meditation and while you might take a spiritual journey to India or Peru, you know you’re not meant to live in an ashram chanting ‘om’ all day. You’re here to engage in the world, to share your gifts, to connect. You’re unique and are tired of all the ways you’ve hidden or judged those parts of yourself. You want to be authentic, to live fully, to feel that your life and relationships express the truth of who you are and that you aren’t pretending.

You’re no longer willing to sacrifice yourself and your bigger purpose for the safe harbor of all that you’ve accomplished. You want to make a difference, not because you have to prove something but because you’re inspired to share and shine and contribute, in your way, to the evolution of the planet. You want live in alignment with your Spirit. You want to feel more peace and less stress, more intuitive and less caught in your head. You recognize the benefits of technology and seek to be conscious and masterful in your use of information, time and energy. More in your body, more in flow, more inspired, more at ease in your own skin. You want to feel that smile that emerges from the center of your being when you are doing and being what you were created for. You’re ready for that feeling of being in alignment.

You recognize that it’ll take some work, some deep introspection, some feeling into the places you’ve forgotten or have been avoiding, some different choices, some reinvigoration of your passion and purpose, and some time in quiet to listen to the wisdom of your soul.

You’re not exactly sure how to proceed. You’ve tried some courses or meditation but haven’t quite been able to make the shifts you’re wanting to make. You know there’s more. You know you could use some support, but you want it to be the right kind of support for you. You want to be seen. To be felt and heard. To be able to express the fullness of your emotions and real self in a safe space with someone experienced enough and compassionate enough to stay in there with you all the way through. You want this to be a transformational process, to expand your intuitive and spiritual abilities while staying grounded and engaged with your life and the people in it.
