Hey! I’m Tracy Konane

Growing up in a small town in Hawaii, the two things I remember being told repeatedly as a child were — lovingly — “You’re so creative!” and — with utter exasperation — “Why won’t you listen to us?!”

A true creative-rebel from the start, I was a natural at playing outside the box, adventuring beyond the norms, dreaming up creative solutions, and living life as a big exciting possibility — no matter what anyone else said.

I’ve always been into doing my own thing, but the realest and biggest creative rebellions have all happened within myself.


    • When I knew I wanted to be more than a shy, scared, awkward loner for the rest of my life, I went against all I had ever known and been — and transformed my life into a dazzling, bold, completely unexpected experience that I am still blown-away by every single day.


    • When at 19 I realized that I loathed myself as an angry, manipulative, jealous girlfriend; I got out of my fear-filled comfort zone and reworked my mind to be much more open, loving, self-providing, and was able to realize the opposite experience of who I was before, and dabble in unconditional love.


    • When in my later-20’s I was disgusted by my destructive lifestyle choices, I again hardcore rebelled and re-created.   I went from Redbull and bar-food, to green smoothies every morning.  From increasingly toxic relationships to ones that are respectful, loving, and growth-inducing.   From drinking myself to-sleep every night, to… still drinking…but not nearly quite as much.


    • And instead of stressing and trying to twist myself into being “right” for everybody, I am finally making the ultimate creative rebellion: to let go and just be my unconventional,  flawed, and full-of-contradictions self, simply for the sheer experience of being fully ALIVE and FREE. 


Because to me, that’s really what it’s all about.


In a world where we are being told by everything and everyone how we should think about ourselves and how we should live our lives –to stand up above the inner & outer noise and consciously choose exactly what you decide to believe and how you wish to live — THAT is the most badass, loving, and empowering thing we could ever do for ourselves.



I have a Bachelor’s in Philosophy, a Master’s in Information Science, and I am a certified graduate of Brooke Castillo’s Life Coach School.

But the most important credential I have is that helping people create their own free, exciting, unconventional life is my truest and most intimate mission.  I live and breathe it.

The human ability to keep re-creating who you are, is my deepest, most prevalent passion.

And I’m doing it hardcore every single day.  With myself and others.

And I’m loving every moment of it.

My details

Currently living in the middle of crazy-ass Hollywood, CA with my amazing boyfriend and loving it.

I’ve been a bartender, piano teacher, web designer, band geek, librarian, and crazy party chick.

If I’m not listening to meditative beautiful mind-music, I’m usually listening to some form of upbeat rock or heavy pop/electronica.  My favorite band in the entire world is Rammstein, and I got to see them live twice!

I also have a soft spot for Broadway tunes.

I’ve had 11 piercings and all different hair colors, but no tattoos.

Creativity is my superpower, and I dabble in:  writing, drawing, digital design, music-making, performing, crafting, hair-coloring, costume-making, coming up with crazy ideas.

I love discovering other people’s personal quirks, deepest secrets, and odd obsessions, and I can’t wait to learn about yours!

    Hi! I stumbled upon your blog, The Monk Life, and I love it. I have a blog, theglimmery.com, that aims to capture hopes and dreams and happiness. I was wondering if you don’t mind me quoting from your blog; I will link back. And also, what is your background in being a life-monk? You can e-mail me privately if you’d like at gaolimoua@yahoo.com. I did try to e-mail you but it came back bad.
