Compassion Tenet

We seek to alleviate the suffering of all beings through our daily choices. Sustainability is a priority and we actively reduce our impact on the planet. We treat others as we want to be treated and know that compassion starts from within. We stand for social justice and meaningful change.

Tranquility du Jour

I created several small women’s groups based on the TDJ soirée principles and devoured each step of the journey. Because of Kimberly’s ability to actively engage, I feel I was actually there in the process with her. Her books, blog, social media, podcasts and courses make me so happy and I feel a youthful exuberance & sense of “anything is possible if you stay true to yourself.”

Spotify Podcast Playlist

Learn and indulge in this carefully-curated TDJ playlist of auditory resources, stories, and insights centered on compassion.


This digital course is one module of the full TDJ Tenet course (formerly TDJ Lifestyle), comes with a 20-page workbook PDF, five audio/video lessons plus transcripts, and a bonus Spotify podcast playlist!

The modules are available on demand.

Great question! Each micro-course is focused on a TDJ Tenet and is a deep dive into compassion, wellness, creativity, wellness, and/or mindfulness. The hand-picked resources are focused on each tenet.

For the past 20 years I’ve used these practices to write six books, prioritize self-care while running multiple businesses, navigate deep loss, build a 20-year relationship with my partner, highlight philanthropy in my work, complete two master’s programs, and teach in over 35 cities across the globe. I believe it’s never too late and our plates are never too full to live the life we want. It starts with small steps and practices that move us closer to our future selves. This e-course shares the secrets of how I’ve used the Tenets in my life.

To get the most out of the experience, I encourage devoting at least two to three hours each week to watch the videos, reflect in your workbook, and try the practices. You have lifetime access to the program, so if you fall behind you can revisit the program as your schedule allows.

TDJ Tenets e-course is filled with digital resources, so there aren’t any refunds and we think you’re going to love the experience.

Hi, I’m Kimberly!

I’m a psychotherapist in private practice and midlife mentor, committed to helping women embrace the joys of this transformative phase of life and empowering them to find renewed purpose and tranquility in their every day. I also serve as president of Pigs & Pugs Project and design eco-fashion TDJ.

For over 20 years, I’ve studied, practiced, and taught the art of tranquility to global audiences. As the host of the Tranquility du Jour podcast, author of multiple lifestyle-focused books, and creator of online courses and events, my mission is to guide midlife women towards balance, beauty, and renewed purpose in their everyday lives.

I have Master’s in Women’s Studies and Social Work and has been featured in The Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, Washingtonian, Huffington Post, US News & World Report, Yoga Journal, and Bella Grace. I live in Washington, DC with rescue pugs and a longtime partner while also dreaming of Paris.

My obsessions include ballet, matcha lattes, snail mail, and buying more books than I could ever read. Join the tranquility movement and enjoy ongoing inspiration through my Love Notes.
