Grown God·dess
A woman who feels safe, confident, juiced up, connected to her calling and full of sensual life-force. 

Over the last year, I've worked with over 100 women with complex or sexual trauma, either 1-on-1 or in group settings, to help them unshame and reclaim that secret power within. 

Safely, with trauma informed modalities and zero force, I've witnessed women emerge into juicy aliveness and potent self-confidence like never before. 

I've watched women who've experienced all levels of violation, reclaim their sovereignty and power in profoundly healing ways. 

I've watched women howl in support of one another... laugh and cry and hold each other. 

It's been a great honor and a tremendous learning experience.

*Female-of-center-identifying. All sexual orientations welcome. 

In this 10 week immersion we'll focus on the four core keys that've helped so many of the women I work with come 
all the way back to life:
1. Embracing Your Core Identity. Taking back your sensuality, sexuality, creativity, brilliance, playfulness...

2. Embodying Healthy Boundaries + Resolving Trauma. Reviving your capacity to say No, allowing your body to complete incomplete emergency responses from past violations...

3. Devoting to a Call that Turns You On. Saying YES to your Core Identity's most alive, juiced up expression in the world...

4. Belonging to a Supportive Sisterhood. Giving and receiving transformative permission and encouragement to rise and shine as the true you.

Here's what's included in the Grown Goddess Academy:
  • 10 live group lessons + weekly practices (incorporating body, emotion and mind) on the core topics for liberation (Tuesdays 5-6:30pm PST). Topics include: building momentums of health & healing, traumarama edu, safety and consent, boundaries, sex and vagina love, inner-kid healing, whole-life turn on and more! 
  • 10 live group coaching calls, with opportunities to be coached 1-on-1 by me and get to know the group before our in-person retreat. (Thursdays 5-7pm PST).
  • A team of trauma-informed guides present on the calls and at the retreat. Laura Weber, the most amazing trauma-informed sex coach, is holding space and backing me up on all our calls & at the retreat, and the incredible trauma sensitive yoga instructor, Kelsey Gustafson, guides our movement during the retreat. (They're two of the most brilliant, loving women I know.)
  • Recordings of all the calls to either re-listen or play-back whenever you'd like.
  • A 3-day, 3-night in-person retreat in San Diego – shared housing, breakfast and lunches are all included in the cost of the Academy. (October 13, 14, 15). 
  • A private Facebook community to connect, get support and share breakthroughs.
  • Serious sisterhood love and a community of women all devoted to the same liberation.

The Grown Goddess Academy is an investment in healing old hurt and tuning into and turning on the most pleasurable, powerful and purposeful self you can imagine.

$1700 if paid in full.

{10 lessons + 10 group coaching calls + facebook community + 3-day in-person retreat included – this is the cost for a shared room. $200 upgrade for a single room.}

Here's to the luscious awakening...

What Grown Goddess Alums are Saying:

"Rachael's Grown Goddess Academy is hands down the best experience I've had doing this type of work in a group setting. Before I joined I was very nervous and apprehensive about going into a group experience in such tender territory. By the end of it–especially the retreat–I came out with a sisterhood that I didn't even know I needed and I wouldn't have had it any other way. 

What makes this program different is Rachael's capacity to create a space that is truly safe, totally choice-driven (no force in activities, you can participate as much or as little as you want) that creates a sense of freedom and a container that results in incredible change for every single person in such a short time. 

Before the academy I was saying yes to things I really meant no to, burning out, pushing my limits, and wondering why I was feeling the unhappiness I was feeling. Now I feel so much more aligned with my needs, my desires, and feel equipped with the tools to navigate my life from a place of choice and power. Work with this woman and do this program. I promise you will never be the same." – A.N.

"Working with Rachael is a no brainer. Literally. She deftly helps tease out embodied wisdom - something rarely tapped into. Before the Grown Goddess Academy, I felt stuck in old fear patterns at the cellular level. Rachael masterfully helped me update my embodied responses through radical acceptance and by helping me integrate my feminine desires into my forward path. Rachael approaches her craft artfully and with grace, and lives the core truth and power of her teachings. She's a true force of light and has helped me expand into a more powerful, integrated, and peaceful way of being." 
– J.Q.

"The moment I met Rachael and heard about unshaming my Secret Bad Girl I knew this was a missing piece in my journey to feeling more alive, in my power, and connected to myself and my body. 

Though I'd done a LOT of work in that area and am a coach and healer myself, there was part of me that didn't feel totally on the other side of it all and I didn't know why. What I did know was that despite all the work I'd done, I was STILL missing a level of joy and permission to be innocent, playful, and sensual and I wanted that back. 

What I realized through the program was that I had spent a lot of years not honoring my "no's" and feeling a deep shame because of it. I didn't realize how much of an impact that was still having on self-image and freedom to be me. I also didn't allow myself to honor and hold space for the past trauma of feeling stuck in situations and relationships that were not self-honoring, because I was so determined to "get out of victim" that I was shaming myself for having been a victim in the first place, and never felt safe enough to ride the waves and release it from my body. 

I can't believe it was just a couple of months, because I feel SO transformed through the Grown Goddess program and retreat. I've reclaimed my power and I feel brave enough to honor my no's, and because of that my inner child is coming back to play and my Grown Goddess is here to keep her safe.
– N.B.

"In the Grown Goddess Academy I learned that our basic needs are GOOD and that our needs not being met or honored may lead us to seek out unhealthy ways of getting them met. It's really sweet and innocent! It feels so liberating and delicious to realize that inherent goodness and shed the shame.

Rachael has lived it - her gentle allowing approach is so loving and full of ease - no pushing, no rushing. She creates and holds a safe container for vulnerability, growth and connection. Yes, connection. That was a tough one for me - the Lone Wolf.

So when I went to the in-person retreat I was super vigilant. I was NOT going to cry or share too much (I now realize this is a PTSD response in the form of martyrdom - "I am fine by myself" thinking). In the first hour I realized that this was unlike anything I had ever experienced. The love and support in the room was palpable. It felt icky and disingenuous to NOT participate, even though that was welcome, too. Nothing is mandatory.

The rawness and truth of emotion and human-ness forever changed me. We are all wounded in some way and I used to operate from a "Pull yourself up by your bootstraps and get on with it" mentality. This retreat and these women made me soften - towards myself and others. That feels more genuine and authentic than judging people for being weak, mostly myself!

My trauma was not sexual, it was more neglect and abandonment. It really doesn't matter, and comparing is futile. I recommend the Grown Goddess Academy to anyone who feels "other", like they don't belong, like they're the Black Sheep or just awkward. This program helped me step into my Divine Feminine and own my power, my magic and my soveriegnty. Deep bow to you Rachael Maddox. I love you sister." – C.A. 
A little more about my background as your guide:
Hey there, 

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. 

Let's make this super consensual...
Consensual sales is one of my deepest values when it comes to doing this work. 

I'm 100% committed to creating a safe and right-fit environment for everyone who joins the Academy... way more than "making a sale".

You're not a "sale" to me. 

You're a human with a desire to heal. 
I'm a human with a certain skill set. 

I'm devoted to working with the people whose need overlaps with my skill set – and referring out whenever my gut or professional discernment says we might not be a right fit.

That's why I talk to every person who wants to join the Academy before hand.

On our call, we'll get clear on exactly where you are, where you want to be, and the kind of support that would be most meaningful and effective for you.

You can ask me any and every question you have.

And we'll feel into if it's a wholehearted yes for us both, before we move forward together. 

Because you deserve that.
(We both do.)

And good goddess, it feels so much better than any other option.
