Institute for Self Crafting, led by Hollie Bakerboljkovac is a Company that values Contribution, Authentic Connection and a Self Crafted Life.

Institute for Self Crafting is for people who believe this world is so much more than what the mainstream paradigm is offering.

This is for anyone who is ready for immediate change to live your most desirable life.

Everything here is designed to inspire and support you to take actions that set you free from the boring, limiting boxes that everyone else is tolerating. Self Crafting is the process of eliminating the blockages that keep you from being everything you could be.

Learn how to use traditional wisdom in the areas of mental, environmental, emotional, physical and spiritual health to build a life overflowing with benefits. Sessions, events, books and online content promote personal, positive action so that anyone can be the full contribution they came to this life to be.

You know you are living a Self Crafted Life when you are responding from autonomous choice, rather than reacting from fear. Self Crafters create connections that out-thrive all else society has to offer.

Our people are truly the artisans of their own reality.

The Lunation Annual Planner is the Institute’s signature product. A transformative personal growth program, disguised as a diary, the Planner is a daily workbook for creating a life that sets you free.
