Why I do What I do

Once upon a time, I was where you are now.

After the birth of my second child, I sought medical attention for postpartum depression and extreme weight gain which led to me to studies in nutrition, exercise, and mindset. In less than a year, I lost over 60 pounds and regained clarity and calm. 

That was 16 years and 4 children ago!

Now I 
help women to heal by building a system of self-nurturing nourishing with wholesome food, energizing with movement and reframing her perspective with sweet talk ultimately eliminating the cause of her health conditions and detox her body.

How  can you work with me?

 Cordelia Gaffar is one of the great wisdom teachers of our time. Her voice is deeply unique and has the power to uplift those, even in the darkest of times.~ KC Baker, Thought Leadership Coach, Speech Writer, and Founder at WomanSpeak

Love your spirt, your smile, your essence. Loved your talking about Nourishment & sanctuary, two things that are key for me as well. Love your passion and love that you lead with your heart.  ❤~ Harmony, attendee WomanSpeak International Festival April 2018

Cordelia Gaffar is an excellent speaker and panelist. She participated and supported my business and event to promote diversity and amongst women. Cordelia is very poised but steadfast and captivating in her presentation. She is very knowledgeable about all things nutrition, wellness and living a well-rounded healthy life in spite of any circumstances. I have had the pleasure to observe Cordelia in small group and large settings. She is humble, consistent and dependable. ~ Yolanda Johnson, Organizer Can You See Me Conference October 2016

My joint venture partner and I hosted The Whole Woman Summit, a virtual gathering for women and had the good fortune of booking Mrs. Cordelia Gaffar as one of our speakers. Ms. Gaffar was prepared, informative and delivered her key takeaways as promised. Your audience will appreciate her delivery and wisdom. ~ Lisa Alexander, organizer The Whole Woman Summit, March 2017

Your presence is truly an inspiration! Thank you for sharing your Light with us all!~ Jennifer Emperador, attendee WomanSpeak International Festival April 2018


 Cordelia thank you so much for your powerful message...Rituals in daily life.. and how they affect me... showing up in life.. I lost my yoga practice due to injury/work then a car crash...  I am now making a major shift in my balance of life... 💞~Sallyanne Bliss, attendee WomanSpeak International Festival April 2018

How do you capture something insidious and invisible that has infiltrated every aspect of our culture and intoxicates us with social approval, access to resources and the illusion of an unshakeable identity that we can conquer the world? Leave it to Cordelia to paint you this deceptive picture of success that we all aspire to achieve.  She masterfully let her captivated audience hear the muffled whispers of the voice of wisdom inside of her as it grew and eventually erupted in gut wrenching pleas and sobs of irrefutable truth more than a decade ago. While recounting her story, Cordelia embodied the quintessential, brilliant, modern woman cracked open and reborn after giving birth to her baby. The traumatic birth of my son 18 years ago was  similarly the turning in my life that embarked me on my soul’s mission. However, even as a writer, I didn’t come close to recreating the scenes and moments that Cordelia so powerfully embodied as if they happened yesterday. Cordelia reconnected me to the infinite source of power in the pit of my womb and slowly guided me and everyone in the audience back to life with her delectable and wholesome good mood food, the tantalizing deliciousness of her talk, and the sensual vitality that started to stream back in her body. I could easily imagine the rich, nourishing and creative the  smorgasbord of services she is able to cook up in her kitchen and healing sanctuaries if this was just the appetizer. The raw and powerful feelings she invoked in me will never be forgotten.
