Rachael here. Here's what I know: trauma is TENDER TERRITORY. But the other side of being stuck inside a trauma spell is the sweetest kind of liberation. (And still tender, because... humanness. :)
The Grown Goddess Academy is everything I'd want from a group program – immersive but not too long, with an in-person component, and guided by someone who deeply values the right to say no, do less, sit out, or rebel. It's also a mix of education and experiential practices that incorporate the mind, body, heart and soul – because every part of you matters.
I've worked with almost 100 humans over the last 12 months alone, helping them break their trauma spells and re-emerge as confident, embodied, empowered, juiced-up and WHOLE. The amount a human can change just by being in the right setting and getting the kind of support they truly need astounds and inspires me. I love this work so much.
My professional training includes Alchemical Alignment Trauma Resolution and Embodiment of Spirit (Levels 1, 2 and 3–Level 2 twice because I'm a trauma nerd), Co-Active Coaching and the Awakened Leadership Institute. Alchemical Alignment is rooted in Somatic Experiencing, Biodynamics and Craniosacral origins.
On the personal side, I like easeful adventures, making out, pink skies, playing music with friends, and cooking green beans on the stovetop. I believe togetherness is the medicine we've so desperately been seeking and pleasure is the power that will heal the planet. But for both to happen sustainably, we need to learn deep and true consent... consent that's rooted in reverence, attunement, desire and the very grown up ability to say no and accept no... for the sake of a mutually turned on YES. I know we can do it. Let's get to it. Together.
