Have you ever wanted a mind, heart, body lift?  I have.  Find out more…

I feel very excited to announce a new awakening of my business.  Let me introduce you to . . .

Living Well Awake!

Ten years ago before I even knew that I was going to create a business, I had an intuition to buy a domain name and create a business called Intuitive Wellness.  This name has served me well, but over the last few years my vision and business has changed.  I am a strong believer in aligning my thoughts in action.  I feel the next frontier of my business as Living Well Awake will be expansive, impactful, full of heart, and continue to serve my community, students, and the world in the best of possible ways.   May it be so.

Personal & Professional Life Coaching

Personal & Professional Life Coaching

Do you want to live a fully nourished life that you love? YES!

Are you tired of being caught in self-destructive patterns and want to claim your power?

Do you feel tired of all the “doing” and know that a slower pace of life is what you need to flourish?

I am so glad you are here.  I have felt all these things too and have gone through and come out the other side.  Most would consider me an encyclopedia of knowledge on the mind, body, and heart, but I didn’t always have the tools.  I found yoga and meditation at an early age of 19 and have been building my knowledge in neuroscience, somatic experiencing, buddhism, behavior change, nutrition, relationships, career development, and love personally and professionally for over 15 years.  I am trained as a psychotherapist and executive life coach and am innately a teacher.  I blend these qualities with my deep knowledge of buddhist psychology to support my clients personally and professionally.  I love empowering my corporate and individual clients in the areas of wellness, love & relationships, and career development.   

Carley head shot

I am 100% committed to guiding and supporting you in the most resourced and loving way possible.  

I observe my clients accomplishing profound change in our work together.  My clients and I work as a team where we both invest equally to ensure success and growth.  Most of my clients call me “a one stop shop soul coach“.  I inspire and shift negative patterns with an integrative approach of the mind, body, heart for work and home.   

My style is warm, interactive, compassionate, and direct.  It is my belief that each client has within them the knowledge and power to heal and grow.  My role is to help facilitate the discovery with resources, support, and tools.

14 things that lead me to this work

  • I have a high value for personal growth.   I set intentions for myself 3x a year and then align my actions behind those intentions.  I have learned to be a powerful manifestor when I commit to what I want.
  • I have spent over 15 years of my life practicing and studying Buddhism and the mind.  I am a graduate of Spirit Rock Meditation Centers Dedicated Practitioners Program.  
  • I have have had a yoga/meditation practice since I was 19 years old.
  • I hold certifications in mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT), mindfulness based eating awareness (MBEAT), and am a certified vinyasa yoga instructor.
  • I have studied psychology, coaching, behavior change, neuroscience, happiness, buddhism, the science of relationships and attachment theory, and food as medicine.
  • I went through the Gottman Method training to support and counsel those in the aim of cultivating healthy, loving, and lasting relationships.
  • I am a research nerd and have been a lead consultant on several studies observing the long term benefits of mindfulness as it relates to weight loss, eating, stress resiliency, and well being at home and in corporate worksites.
  • I am innately a teacher and have developed curriculum for large scale corporate wellness programs, consulted on  research interventions, lead and developed weeklong and daylong meditation retreats, and have created several academic courses at Stanford University & UC Berkeley. I teach on the subjects of Happiness, Food as Medicine, Healthy Psychology, Integrating Mindfulness into your Professional Practice, and Mindful Nourishment at Stanford University.
  • I am an author and regularly contribute on the subjects of mindfulness and well being for Mindful magazine among other relevant blogs.
  • I have lead and developed large scale wellness programs to create impactful positive culture change at worksites such as LinkedIn, Pixar, Bank of the West, etc.
  • I grew up with Jewish grandparents who were caterers and owned grocery stores who shared with me their love of cooking and food.  As a result, I developed an interest in nutrition, the psychology of eating, cooking and the healing aspects of food which I share with my clients and students in my courses and coaching.
  • I worked with cancer patients for over six years while pursuing my masters degree in Health Psychology.  During graduate school, I developed an exercise and stress management intervention to enhance the quality of life in cancer patients.  This experience showed me how fragile life is and taught me the practices of gratitude and forgiveness.
  • I have completed over 3,000 supervised hours conducting group and individual psychotherapy.  At the same time I was receiving supervision as a life coach.   I decided I like life coaching better, and weave in my training and experience as a psychotherapist to support deeper work with my clients.  I have successfully coached thousands of clients in how to access the greatest possibility for their lives.  I was voted one of the best life coaches in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2016.  Yes!
  • My last name, Hauck means Breath in German.


What is my special sauce?

I find that all my clients initially come to me from a place of imbalance.   In our busy society, we are struggling to keep up with the “busy” pace of life.  As a result, we are depleted and stuck in some unhealthy patterns that don’t serve us.  When our minds, hearts, and bodies are not in balance, we can’t access our greatest potential at work or home.

I feel the most important skill for real change to occur is self awareness.  With the ability to see ourselves clearly, our patterns, and what is or is not serving us, we can change, heal, and grow.  I integrate my deep understanding of the mind, body, and heart with life changing evidence based tools and mindful practices  that inspire growth and sustainable transformation.

I help my clients to tune into what really matters by re-aligning the mind, body, and heart.  When balance is present, one can lead an inspired and amazing life.

I look forward to supporting you to live a fully nourished life that you love.

With love,


4 Questions to Foster Your Authentic Self

4 Questions to Foster Your Authentic Self

When we fear that we can’t think and act as we truly are, we put parts of ourselves on hold. Here’s how we can begin to let go of expectations and pressures and tend to our wants and needs with kindness.

Did you know that authenticity is inextricably linked to happiness? To be authentic is to feel at home in your body, accepted into a particular group, and to feel true to our sense of values. It is a kind of confidence that doesn’t come from attaining something outside of ourselves, but knowing deeply we are enough whatever our particular feelings, needs, or skills are and that we add to the greater whole of life and matter. We can be true to our own personality, spirit, or character despite external pressures.

Compassionate Boundaries: How to Say No with Heart

Compassionate Boundaries: How to Say No with Heart

How to get your needs met in a way that considers all parties with kindness.

Do you have a pattern of saying yes to others, but then feeling resentful later on? Do you believe that you must come to the aid of others and often give to get?

You are not alone.

Many of us have developed a belief that we must be nice, pleasing, or helpful to the exclusion of our own feelings and needs in order to be worthy of love or appreciation. This belief is, of course, not true and furthermore an impossible goal to meet. When we give to get, we can often end up feeling angry and as a result we don’t create healthy boundaries at home and work. Read full article >

How to Tame the Wanting Mind

How to Tame the Wanting Mind

What feels like “enough”? Carley Hauck explores how to build a healthier relationship to the things we’re attached to—and the things we desire.

Have you ever wanted something so badly that you prayed for it, you saved up for it, and/or you worked really hard for it? Then once you got it, you thought, “Hmmm, this wasn’t as great as I built it up to be and now I want something else”?

The mind always yearns for something more. It might desire a new experience, a pleasant feeling or sensation, or crave the acquisition of something that it feels will bring pleasure. However, the experiences, sensations, and/or pleasant feelings that we strive for don’t last and we often find ourselves wanting more. The one thing we can count on in this life is impermanence and continuous change. Read full article >

“I have never been more in love with my life!
The time I spent with you and the other Blooming Lotuses in Mexico was a life altering experience for me. I was emotionally stuck and spiritually bankrupt! I felt guilty about decisions I had made in the past that really harmed me and my self-esteem. With your support, the tools you shared with the group, daily journaling, sharing and guidance, I found the courage to let go of some relationships that were not serving my greater good. I learned the concept about feeling safe in personal relationships and friendships. I left your retreat with a fresh perspective and an attitude of Grace and Self Compassion for myself. I also experienced first hand the benefits of having a dedicated meditation practice, farm to the table mentality and a better appreciation for Mother Earth. I have invested in a water bottle for my son and I and we use them faithfully. No more plastic bottles! I’m happy to report, I’m on this journey called life and I’ve never been more in love with my life! Thank you, Carley.”
– Kelly B.

What We Love, We Should Protect

What We Love, We Should Protect

How a mindful approach to consumption can help us bridge the gap between individual efforts toward the environment and the bigger picture.

The subject of mindfulness, as it relates to climate change, may be the most important and timely practice of our times. Thich Nhat Hanh writes in his book, The World We Have: A Buddhist Approach to Peace and Ecology, “The situation the Earth is in today has been created by unmindful production and unmindful consumption. We consume to forget our worries and our anxieties. Tranquilizing ourselves with over-consumption is not the way.”

Every fall and spring, I teach on the topic of mindful nourishment at Stanford University. I developed this curriculum nine years ago and have researched it, taught it at worksites, online, and in academia. Within this class, I teach the foundations of mindfulness—to live a fully nourished life at work and at home. The class encourages practices that enable students to focus on how they are nurturing their minds, bodies, relationships, and hearts.

How to Be More Compassionate at Work

How to Be More Compassionate at Work

How compassion can short-circuit stressors in the workplace.

Have you ever dreaded going into work because the people around you were in a negative spiral of energy? We are emotional beings and we can’t help but be affected by the varying moods and interactions we have with others. Life is always changing and this constant change can create difficult thoughts and emotions, which can flow into the workplace. The silver lining is that if we can meet suffering at work with concern and care, compassion naturally arises. Work environments that cultivate compassion create a much more positive and productive place to work.

Cultivate What You Want by Loving What You Have

Cultivate What You Want by Loving What You Have

Want to find contentment in the New Year? Look for ways to acknowledge what’s already working and pair it with intentions for the year ahead.

The concept of a new year can bring promise and sometimes a sense of not being content with what we have. Our mind is naturally inclined toward the negative and as a result we may focus on what needs to be fixed or what isn’t going well in our lives. We can bring an energy of discontentment into the New Year and with it a feeling of pressure. Have you ever heard yourself think, “This is the year that I have to…exercise more, meet the man/woman of my dreams, land that dream job, etc.”
