In this Q&A shares how at Majesty Week participants will how to tap into their inner authority and divine feminine energy.
Can you describe the transformative journey that participants can expect during this forthcoming Majesty Week?
This special week (March 3-10, 2024) promises to be a transformational one. We will be honoring the “Majesty” within us all. The process that I teach will help participants tap into their inner authority to embrace their sovereign power. The energy of the feminine embodies the nurturer, the healer, and the compassionate peacemaker, while the masculine energy is focused on doing and achieving; this week, we will allow the divine feminine within to lead us, which means more being and allowing, vs. doing and achieving.
“When we learn how to tap deeper into our innate self by going within, tuning in, and seeing what feels right, we grow. It’s not going outward for information but rather receiving it from within, and this is what encapsulates the essence of Majesty.”
How will you guide participants through their process, and what can a potential guest expect to experience at your workshop?
The workshop is a two-part experience where I teach my most effective strategies for tapping into your innate wisdom so you can step into your true power. There is a dignity that comes when we step deeper into our authentic power and operate from soul alignment, and my core pillars of inner peace will help guide each soul to its path of least resistance and help shift them into the optimal highest timeline available to them. One of the most beautiful aspects of the program is that the workshops I lead will directly support the deep inner work each participant does in the Ayahuasca plant medicine ceremonies at Rythmia.
Perfectionism often hinders personal growth. How do you plan to help participants break free from these constraints and embrace their true power during the retreat?
We tend to try to control outcomes, and our perfectionist, ego-based self takes hold; this causes friction, resistance, and a ton of lack of clarity. We often choose from a place of fear rather than trusting the innate wisdom within. My workshop process helps us break free from these limitations. This process will help shift us from our heads into our hearts to live from love, joy, and peace rather than ego, control, and wounded power. Through partner exercises, intuitive journaling, and guided meditations, I help people break the barrier of fear and turn it into faith. We move from worry into wonder, shifting us into true power grounded in faith, trust, and love.
Can you share a personal story or insight that encapsulates the essence of Majesty?
Learning how to mother ourselves is a process that this week will also help to heal. Whether it is the “Mother Wound,” understanding the wounded feminine and healing this aspect within ourselves, and also being able to access the Mother's intuition that lives within. I’ve been on a journey over the past decade to really hone in on these skills and heal my own inner wounded child that was attached to mother approval through perfectionism. I’ve healed this aspect of self and can now teach from a place of authority.
When we learn how to tap deeper into our innate self by going within, tuning in, and seeing what feels right, we grow. It’s not going outward for information but rather receiving it from within, and this is what encapsulates the essence of Majesty.
How do you think this week will support and facilitate the forging of deep, meaningful relationships among its participants?
The lessons I teach in the workshop are designed to open our hearts, remove fear, and align us to our authentic truth. When we operate from this whole, benevolent place, we become a beacon of hope, love, and possibilities. This attracts other like-minded and like-hearted people to us, and we feel more supported, loved, seen, heard, validated, and understood.
By integrating the lessons I teach in the workshops, you will come back into alignment with who you really are. From this place of wholeness, everything that does not serve you—whether it is added body weight, self-sabotaging patterns or addictions, toxic relationships, drama-filled days, or anxious tendencies—will naturally give way to peace and love.
You've been a recurring Guest Speaker at Rythmia for quite some time now. What is it about our program that keeps drawing you back? How does each visit differ from the last?
Rythmia is one of the most transformational places I’ve ever experienced, taught at, and participated in. I’ve seen first-hand the transformation that occurs through the program, and I return because the contrast of life always reveals deeper opportunities for growth. Each time I touch in at Rythmia, whether as a participant, media partner, or thought leader speaker, I expand exponentially and shift even more to my soul's highest timeline. It’s an honor to teach, lead, support, and help others grow on their journey.
