A soul connection online course for women.

July 1 - Aug 31, 2019

This time is upon us. If we want to rise with the power {...} and presence and not just with the rage of our emotions we have to do the inner work.
— Gurmukh

Like many of you, I spent most of my life, particularly in my twenties - living primarily from the masculine. I really tried to be a"good girl" by trying to make it in a man’s world. This included: pushing through anything no matter how I was feeling. I was “busy, busy, busy” and in return the world valued me as a hard worker. I would soldier on through any life event and pride myself on being able to never stop. I thought this is what it was to be strong and healthy. I was neither.

I really tried to be a "good girl"

Now, in hindsight, this time in my life was completely disconnected from my feminine powers since it relied only and completely on will and determination. It’s  not until much later and in the midst of deep grief over loosing my second son Tommy that I began working intentionally on feeling alive but from the inside .  On this inner journey, I discovered how I hold within me both the feminine and the masculine. Now, instead of resisting change, I am flow through change. Instead of over-riding my feelings, I make them my allies. 

Feeling alive, but from inside.

The formula for balancing my act wasn’t always straight forward or absent of guilt, but I let it unfold. First, I began a strict self-care ritual. This included meditation, yoga, dancing and painting every day. It also includes nature and disconnecting from my phone at nights and on weekends.  Slowly but surely, I began to heal (and still work on healing every day!). With self- work came self-love. The more you love yourself, the more magic you can experience.

 With Self- Work Came Self-Love. The More You Love Yourself, The More Magic You Can Experience.

2019 is an auspicious and timely age to be a woman.

I do not want to be a passive agent of my life anymore. Yet, I find myself ill-equipped to deal with trauma when it hits. When something does hit (because it does and will) - I am left raw, vulnerable, overwhelmed, isolated and busy. So busy! And who has time to process life? To journal? To create daily rituals and live with intention? I want to build this fortress for myself but I give, give, give, work and text all day. 

SHE QUEST Summer School is the beginning of carving time for yourself. 

  • We start with small pockets of time to just ‘be’ as you are

  • We create a space (physical, mental, spiritual) for yourself where you can come back over and over again 

  • Finally invest in your soul cries to live a fuller, deeper and magical existence. 

  • A recognition that you hold both the masculine and the feminine within you. 

Resiliency and how to cope with anxieties and stress is no joke and yet it is not taught in schools! 

Resiliency and how to cope with anxieties and stress is no joke and yet it is not taught in schools! We wake up feeling ‘funky’ and out of place. In one lifetime we go through many identity crisis, life transitions and special circumstances. The physical, emotional, spiritual dimension of our human existence is fragile, subtle and receives what we give it. How many times have you thought you were ‘over’ something, until well, you weren’t. That type of hang over has happen to me physically and emotionally many times.

What is SHE Quest Summer School?

IMG_7581.jpg

SHE Quest is a soul connection online program for women. The 8-weeks program access our human need for connection, self-expression and beauty. Connection in all it’s myriad of levels - with self, friends and family and universe.  I believe women crave this but we have NO WHERE to converse, make, release and reflect.

SHE Quest is a modern platform to celebrate your womanhood. A foundation to start authentic and much needed conversation around our soul connection. And it’s about time we redefine the word ‘beauty’. 

SHE Quest is a home to make useless art doodles, meaningful sketches and brave paintings. A dwelling place to reflect on you past, present and future life. A conversation with our own SHE because #SHEISINME. Instead of walking alone, you are now with others SHE’s. 

SHE Quest is a refusal to live numb and small. It’s taking back your own face with courage. It’s deep listening and reverence. It’s a welcoming of everything. 

Together we can take off our masks; show our real faces. Owning it too!
