Hi! I’m Sasha Cagen, a women’s empowerment coach with a body-mind twist and a focus on helping women 40+, author of the cult hit book Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics (Harper SanFrancisco) and To-Do List: From Buying Milk to Finding a Soul Mate, What Our Lists Reveal About Us (Simon & Schuster), and a tango-obsessed world traveler.
My books and coaching work have been featured in 100+ media outlets worldwide, from NPR and the New York Times to the Guardian and CNN.
I’m here to help you reconnect with yourself, your sensuality, and your body, to help you live your best life. I can even help you make decisions by consulting your pussy 😉 Yes I did just write that sentence in my bio!
The best way to stay in touch is to sign up for my newsletter the Sasha Cagen Weeklyish. My 5000+ subscribers often tell me that I have an uncanny way of sending them just what they needed to hear at the moment.
How I help
Since 2012, I’ve been working as a women’s empowerment coach. Too many women absorb the notion, “Your life doesn’t get to include pleasure.” Through my coaching programs, I help you tune into what brings you alive, and what brings you joy, baby step by baby step. I also teach you expressive writing, cognitive/behavioral, emotional, communication, and body-mind strategies.
After college, I moved to San Francisco six months after graduating from college in search of my own California dream. I lived in the Bay Area for nearly two decades productively and happily as a writer, until I got sucked into the world of Silicon Valley to make “practical” decisions in my mid-thirties.
My first coach helped me to listen to my body, which tugged at me insistently to make different choices. I ran away from a stable career path in technology to South America based on an intuition that I needed to get out of my head and into my body.
My first book Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics (HarperCollins) was ripped from my heart, and turned into an underground sensation that built a cult following.
My second book To-Do List: From Buying Milk to Finding a Soul Mate, What Our Lists Reveal About Us (Simon & Schuster) shines a light on our lists as a window into our souls. Watch this talk I did at Google about my original research into lists and listmakers.
I am currently at work on a memoir called Wet , which tells the story of how I healed deep-seated shame, a result of childhood trauma, and worked through unhealthy patterns of not speaking up or feeling worthy, through connecting with my body and sensuality in South America.
