About

What if we stopped asking “what do you do?” and started asking “how might you BE in this world?”

Chapter BE is an organization that works to connect people to their true internal BEing as they write the next chapter of their life. Through individualized coaching, facilitation, and storytelling, Chapter BE guides people as they reframe their narrative from doing to BEing, ultimately defining success internally and (re)connecting with themselves and a greater humanity.

Meet the Founder

Kïrsten Blake is the the creator and founder of Chapter BE. A passionate educator and mentor, Kïrsten works as a chief facilitator helping individuals reframe their personal narratives and (re)connect with their internal BEing and ultimately, a greater humanity.

In 2011, Kïrsten took a step back from her position in the public education reform sector in pursuit of reframing her own story so that she could put her BEing at the center of her life decisions. The process was one of relearning how to connect to her heart-center, and unlearning many of the things that had become so ingrained in her while being in the traditional workforce. There, Chapter BE was born.

Kïrsten’s work and curiosities have inspired her dedication to education, human connection, and issues of equity. Since 2011, she has interviewed nearly 600 people highlighting and sharing their stories of BEing in hopes to inspire and help others (re)connect with their own BEing and find connections to our common humanity. These stories have been highlighted in The Huffington Post, Ignite Denver and TEDxCherryCreek.

Kïrsten has a B.A. from The College of Wooster, an M.A. in Education from Columbia University, and is a Certified Brain-Based Success Coach.
