Welcome to the inner shift from an old way of being into something new. You are exactly where you are meant to be. There is part of you that has received “the call” from the universe and has felt into a future of tremendous possibility. You are being asked to step away from what is familiar and into the unknown. 

This transition, from an ego driven way of being into a soul led way of being, is one of the most important, if not the most important, experience to ever happen in your lifetime. It will happen many times in your life and learning how to surrender to, and show up for, this transition is a practice.

You have just been given your helmet and space suit and it is time to become an Inner Astronaut. 


The INNER ASTRONAUTS Leadership Program is a robust, three month training program in how to navigate the inner shift from ego driven pursuit into leading with presence and vitality.  This program will train you in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual skills necessary to become the kind of leader the world truly needs. We need leaders who are deeply rooted in nature, and who embody connection, integrity, and authenticity. We begin Sept. 20.



The game as it has been played is no longer sustainable on our bodies, souls, and planet. It is time we redesign the game of life itself. As you begin to shift from an ego-centered to soul-centered way of being, you will move from the relentless pursuit of happiness (or anything for that matter) and into the presence of happiness. As the great poet Rumi wrote, “Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” Together we will set ambitious inner and outer goals and begin releasing any barriers to experiencing them. As you begin to lead from THIS PLACE INSIDE, watch a more just world unfold.

“Fulfillment and happiness come when we align our personality with what our soul came here to do.” - Oprah Winfrey

6 Steps to Navigating the SHIFT from Ego to SOUL IN CHARGE:

Through a combination of in-person and online live coaching, we offer an experiential program where you will: 

  • Explore Your Inner Space: learn how to observe your mind and update old limiting beliefs

  • Learn how to get into “energetic integrity” by deeply listening to your body’s wisdom and taking supportive action. 

  • Discover & Prioritize Your Soul’s Resonance; what practices, experiences, people, places, things, etc. make you feel fully alive.

  • Open to Express Vulnerability in healthy and enlivening ways 

  • Define Your Leadership Code, the values that will help you shape an intentional life and serve as your North Star. 

  • Design and show up for a spiritual/self-care practice that connects you to yourself, your community, and the universe.  

These six steps will help you build a foundation for a new kind of vital leadership, radically shifting your relationships and business. Not doing so will leave you without the necessary skills to help lead yourself and others out of the patterns that no longer serve. Rest assured you will be supported through this process on every level.


You will receive coaching in person and online for three months to learn new tools, a new mindset, and receive coaching around any inner or outer obstacles arising to living in your leadership. You will leave the calls feeling connected to yourself, your vision, and motivated to take action.

"A personal, professional, and spiritually redefining experience! An experience that imparted the importance of establishing balance within myself. I completely reshaped my approach to both work and play. I am now a more engaged and purpose driven leader." — SVP, Fox Studios

  • You feel called to be of service 

  • You are ready to step into energetic integrity and honor your human body

  • You are exhausted by the old way of being and doing and ready to try a new way

  • You have an inkling you are capable of so much more but don’t want to will or push your way there

  • Love to learn, play, connect, and grow

  • You want to join a growing community of people interested in co-creating a more sustainable and spiritually fulfilling planet for all.

  • You want to experience enlightened embodiment.  


  • Showing up on time and respecting others is not your jam

  • You are seeking to dissociate from your body and experience “enlightenment” as an escape from being human.  

“Learning how to talk to yourself and not talk to yourself is a practice to shape a more beautiful mind.”

She founded Inner Astronauts to support people in shifting out of the relentless pursuit for "more" and into presence and authentic service. She works with leaders from Hollywood to Silicon Valley and around the world through rigorous 1:1 coaching and a playful, brave talk (she sings!), revealing surprising insights into how we aim this drive for "more" (money, power, love) in the direction of a new presence of being with ourselves, each other, and this planet.

After a decade of starting companies and making award-winning films she spent ten years studying behavior and consciousness around the world including a Master's Degree in Spiritual Psychology and hundreds of hours of one-on-one and group coaching. She has gone on pilgrimage with Tibetan Monks in Nepal, studied Tantra in Thailand, and traveling around the world learning from Sir Ken Robinson.

Bristol started her career in the film and media business making relevant stories entertaining through film at GOOD for HBO, Paramount, and Showtime (WHICH WAY HOME, BY THE PEOPLE: THE ELECTION OF BARACK OBAMA, RACING DREAMS, SON OF RAMBOW, THE OTHER SHORE: THE DIANA NYAD STORY).

"Of all the coaches I’ve ever worked with, Bristol has been the most effective in supporting my dreams and helping me take action with ease and grace. She is truly gifted!" — Executive, DTI Global  

"Thanks to our working together I have some handles on things I did not before, and namely that is TRUST. I learned to let go of that old style of “taking control” and instead deeply and calmly feel my power in a way that just… IS. My world unfurls before me in a new way now." — Executive Producer, OWN  

"Bristol is a gifted coach who brings her whole self and presence to the session, is generous with ideas, and is incredibly articulate and precise about her diagnoses of what’s not functioning at optimal level and suggested therapies. Although she’d be fantastic for just about anyone, she will be particularly effective for the biggest skeptics—particularly those who have previously outsmarted their therapists or are dubious of the entire process. I can’t recommend her highly enough." — Dr. Nassim A. Physician & TED Fellow  

"I am making more money than ever since I started this program. I even have a ton of money in savings! The work we did around money was hugely transformational. I now charge almost 3x more than my old rates. It’s motivated me to start my own women’s empowerment meetings with my girlfriends." — Kate, Actress & Entrepeneur  

"The truth is that before working with Bristol, I felt lost and out of control of my professional life. Through our work together, I created a series of spiritual and professional practices that allowed me to regain focus and clarify my purpose. These tools will travel with me for my entire life! My primary goals were to get clear on a vision for the next step in my career and transition to a new job. During our time together, I was able to accomplish both!" — Executive, GOOP  

"I am blown away by Bristol’s knowledge, skills, leadership, teaching method, and intuition. She has helped me launch a passion project and new business I spent years dreaming about. My real estate business has doubled, my relationships have become more connected, and I have new confidence, self-care practices, and mindfulness skills to keep me centered and moving in the direction of my dreams." — Executive, Compass Real Estate
