MEET CRIS

Recognized by Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year Award as one of the 50 Hometown Heroes of the United States, Cris Linnares has dedicated 20 years of her life as a passionate advocate for modern women’s wellness and empowerment. Brazilian Psychologist, International Author and Messy Midwest Mom of 4, Cris uses her amazing life story, unapologetic humor and out-loud empowerment to bring a message of fearlessness, faith and freedom around the globe.

Founder of the global community  “FLAW Club” and creator of the acclaimed wellness programs DIVA DANCE and THE P- SPOT, Cris is also a certified Health and Emotional Coach from the International Coach Federation, Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Program and studied Cognitive Therapy at Harvard University.

Her pioneering work has been recognized and published in Shape, Marie Claire, FOX and Women’s Health, and she has brought her message to esteemed stages, including two TEDx talks.

Brazilian by birth and American by choice, Linnares’ life took a 180 when she said “tchau” to her passionate culture and successful career as a best-selling author of women’s psychology in Brazil to marry her “Midwest Prince Charming” and move to one of the coldest place on earth... Fargo, North Dakota.

From stages to stay-at-home mom, Cris felt like an insecure fish-out-of-frozen-water as she struggled to adapt to her new life, land and language. Her desire to “fit in” and do everything “perfect” turned her American Dream into a nightmare -  to the point she didn’t want to say one word in English at a dinner table with the fear of messing up! 

Besides dealing with her own insecurities, she faced postpartum depression, grief, obesity and chronic anxiety.

She started on a mission to get her health and groove back. It was in this “Act 2” of her life that she discovered practical and scientific ways to ditch perfectionism, hit THE P SPOT and bring more passion, pleasure and peace into her crazy vida loca.

Today, through her workshops, retreats, coaching and online community, Cris uses her own messy life experience, faith, cutting-edge psychology and ancient wisdom from her feisty Brazilian roots (passion and dance anyone!?) - to help modern women get out of their own way so they can unleash PASSION, reclaim their  PLEASURE and find PEACE in this crazy ‘vida loca’...flaws and all.... one glorious mistake at a time!

PEOPLE ALWAYS ASK ME:

How I went from being an insecure Brazilian stay-at-home mom in Fargo - afraid to pronounce my last name -  to speaking in front of thousands at two TEDxtalks and being recognized by Glamour Magazine as a Hometown Hero for my work with women’s empowerment?

TURN FEARS into FAITH and FLAWS into FIESTA

(...and have a heck of a good time on the way!)

 

It doesn’t matter if you are an insecure perfectionist like I was, an overwhelmed mom, a successful career woman or still searching for your purpose. If you’re feeling stuck in a rut, personally or professionally,  you are not alone - and believe me, there is a greater story waiting for you to be told!

My life completely changed the day I stopped 'editing' who I truly was. I learned creative ways to ditch perfectionism and my then-atheist brain discovered a God that sees my flaws not as problems, but possibilities to unlock my true potential.

Today, my deepest desire is to pull from 40+ years of learning from my mistakes, 20+ years of working as a psychologist  and more than 2000+ years of biblical wisdom - mixed with a pinch of spicy Brazilian culture (hello! passion, anyone!?) - to help modern women to REVOLUTIONIZE their minds, REDISCOVER who they truly are so they can RECLAIM their true PASSION,  PURPOSE and PEACE in the midst of their 'crazy ‘vida loca’!

As a recovering perfectionist and former atheist turned “God’s Groupie”, I help flawed women like me to ditch perfectionism and GET OUT OF THEIR OWN WAY, so they can be PASSIONATELY IN LOVE with who they truly are, and RECLAIM THE FREAKING AMAZING WOMEN God destined them to be... one glorious mistake at a time!

One of  my greatest flaws – besides being an unapologetic Lionel Richie fan and sometimes peeing when I laugh – was my belief I had to be and do everything “perfect” to feel worthy and achieve my dreams.

In my effort to "fit in", my perfectionism turned my 'American Dream' into a nightmare. I could barely speak at the dinner table for fear of messing up my English!  I became insecure, overweight, depressed and suffered from  chronic anxiety to the point of not  driving for 10 years because of a phobia of passing bridges.

But I know I am not alone. Many women let perfectionism, and the packages it comes from, hold themselves back from exploring  the potential that is waiting for them on the other side of the “bridges of their lives”. 

Blessed are the women who get out of their own way,
for they will conquer the world.

-Cris Linnares

TESTIMONIALS

Rachel Stone

Founder of the non profit P’s & Q’s Etiquette for girls empowerment

“For so long I’ve been asking for forgiveness just for being ME... NOT ANY LONGER! I am inspired to make an impact in the world  and live fun, fearless & free! Thank you so much Cris!”

Kristi Huber

President & CEO, United Way of Cass-Clay

"Each year Cris’ presentation at the 35 under 35 United Way leadership Program receives outstanding reviews! She helped us realize we don’t need to be perfect in every way, shape and form.  It’s something refreshing to hear because as women we are socially conditioned to be PERFECT. She  is funny, passionate, authentic and wonderfully flawed just like each and every one of us.”

Nicole Phillips

Author of “Kindness is Contagious”, Former Fox News Anchor, & mom of three

"I just couldn’t make the transition from ‘mom to lover.’ Cris helped me see myself in a whole new way, as a woman who could shed the June Cleaver image and channel my inner – Shakira!”

Matt Hanover

Co-organizer [email protected]

“Cris was the final presenter at our TEDxYouth Hollywood event. She passionately delivered  a powerful message that resonated with adults and students.”

Mikey Hoeven

Founder of Women’s Wellness Expo, Proud grandmother and former First Lady of North Dakota

"Cris has an extraordinary way of connecting with women from many walks of life...She is one colorful woman! -  not just because of her enthusiastic smile, exotic accent, and loving personality - but because she knows loss, low self-esteem, depression, rejection and the power to reinvent herself."
