womxn are capable
of activating each other’s fullest magic.
I believe womxn can’t have truly empowered
healthy, long-lasting & passionate
unless they cultivate trust, pleasure & power
inside themselves & with each other.
so much energy is drained from partnership
when a womxn actively fears
other womxn as constant threats,
when she is disconnected from her own
turn on & confidence,
when she distrusts her worth,
lives with crippling insecurities,
or endlessly compares & judges..
when we do the work to trust, connect
& heal with womxn directly
we discover not only what it means to be
radically trusting & empowered
but we also receive a vivid mirror
for our greatest gifts:
what makes us exquisitely unique
& what strengths we share
with the collective of womxn.
when we heal together
we have the tough conversations,
we break down the bull sh*t that’s kept us from each other,
& we also dance stripped of defenses
to ecstatically celebrate
the nature of Womxn.
sisterhood has not only been a lost art
for generations -
it is a core & essential aspect of being a womxn
that sets the living foundation
for conscious partnership.
what holds you back from intimate connection
with other womxn?
what insecurities & fears do you need to hold
& get to know within yourself
in order to show up for more?
how can you rebuild your relationship with your OWN sexuality, power, genius & radiance
in such a way that you are empowered WITH,
rather than against, others?
written by me,
DM me if you’re interested in 1-on-1 transformational coaching where we heal the trauma & conditioning that lead to chronic disconnection from your power + co-activate your greatest pleasure & radiance TOGETHER ♥️

150 little paper cut elements later, we’re slowly getting there!✂️💪🏼 I’m working on a new illustration project which is very close to my heart (literally).. as it’s all about fighting the stigma of public breastfeeding! 🤱🏽🤱🏼🤱🏾🤱🏻🤱🏿
The paper artwork is a modern reinterpretation of the “8 Maids a Milking” phrase of the famous Christmas song ... because Yes.✌🏼 .
This project is proving a really fun one as I don’t normally draw or paper-cut humans, and so it’s good to keep pushing boundaries and try new stuff! Swipe through to see my rough initial sketches and refined digital colour mockups.😊 I tried to be as inclusive as possible with my 8 “maids” and purposely added some bottles as not all mothers can breastfeed. 🍼👌🏼
I’m very pleased with how it’s all looking so far and I can’t wait to photograph these lovely ladies and show you the final result!😉

What do you do to shut down what makes you anxious and re-channel your power? You are powerful! Don't let anything get in your way.

Reclaiming our creativity is decolonizing our minds which have been conditioned to believe that creativity comes from a unique genius that only few possess.
Indigenous and ancestral wisdom teaches that creativity is inborn, inherent to living and existing, intrinsic to being a social spirit in human form, a vessel, channel and translator of collective inspiration from all around and before us.
One of my favorite offerings, The Abundant Creativity consultation series, begins in February 2020. For 3 months, a group of womxn and i meet digitally individually and collectively to reclaim, decolonize and redefine creativity for the highest good; to leverage our senses, body intelligence, and a deeper connection with our inner children and backgrounds; and to act on our calling for personal and social transformation via creative expression and expansion.💥
Find more information at the “Creativity” story highlights, including the application and words from alumni. If you’re wanting to step more into your creativity, manifest the ideas you have, share and witness in an affirming and inspiring space, learn and liberate your creatresse voice, this was designed for you, and us. 👁✨🖤

And it's going a little crazy.
This is such an important topic to talk about, to shift the taboos around and to start breaking down shame and 'performance' expectations we have on ourselves and others when it comes to sex.
The vast response to this article already has taught me so much. And if anything, emphasised the importance of pieces like this getting out there. Please have read, feel free to share and maybe even have a chat with a trusted friend or partner about it, see where it takes you xx "And it is always in fire hose proportions that happens again and again and again."

Can you remember when our Wild was taken away from us?
When was our primal body suppressed and shamed?
When did we no longer feel safe feeling sensual?
When were our howls and roars and screams, screeches and snarls silenced?
When was our soverignty stolen?
And most importantly...why?
Let us reclaim the Wild, one Breath at a time.

— December playlists are live —
We asked friend of The Corner, Andrew Barclay to curate a fun holiday playlist for us all to enjoy this season. Andrew truly has the best taste in music, and knows all the fun Christmas tunes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And since it’s the end of 2019, Molly and Alice each made playlists full of music they’ve been loving and playing this year. They’re vibey, soulful + have all the feels.

WE LOVE @rahabs.sisters . Check them out and considering giving them some support during this holiday season.

Rahab’s Sisters is powered by an incredible community of guests, volunteers & financial supporters. We are excited to put a few community members in the spotlight this month. Today we'd like to introduce you to Stacey Givens. .
We first met Stacey when @thesideyardfarm catered our 2017 event at @ecotrust. Not only was Stacey’s food exquisite, but also she came out of the kitchen as we were sharing the story of Rahab’s Sisters and, visibly moved, made a generous donation. It’s no surprise we clicked because just like Rahab’s Sisters, The Side Yard Farm and Kitchen is all about community. And just as we gather folks around tables on SE 82nd to find commonalities and share stories, Stacey gathers folks around tables in the Cully neighborhood to connect deeply and hold space for one another. .
This summer, our community enjoyed her donations of greens so fresh they arrived with ladybugs on them (to the delight of both kids and grown ups). She certainly changed some minds about salads, and she’s touched our hearts with her generosity and caring. .
Thank you, Stacey. .
