6-Week virtual immersive journey of soulful ritual & brave expression to ignite the passionate heart & reclaim aliveness
2 years ago I began to learn a secret that changed my life. It is this:
There is a life designed for each of us that glows in potentiality and beckons us to claim it, every day. It is the life of our fullest aliveness, where we deeply enjoy feeling and experiencing who we are. It offers itself to us through doorways of seasons changing, moon phases, exciting opportunities, tough choices, and brave experiments. It never gives up on us, because it belongs to us by nature. And the closer we move towards ourselves, the more we step into it.
The problem is, many of us don’t tend to move closer to ourselves. Trauma, shame, disappointment and self-criticism often drive us to run from the intense sensations of being in our truest expression. In our efforts to be who we think we should be, we can spend a lifetime searching for what has always been right beneath our nose. It took nearly 10 years of soul-searching before I realized this and unlocked my passionate life. I didn't even know that my passion was missing until I felt the blissful fire of it consume me once again. And when it did, I understood how it had always been right here– encoded in my essence.
No one told me this secret. I discovered it slowly, like an archaeologist of my own heart and a detective of the divine, by beginning to follow the threads of what I loved most, and initiating a steady practice of creative ritual-making which wove them into my physical reality. And, by moving through the rites of passage that these rituals led me to.
It was not always painless, perfect, or fast. But it was always rich with amazement and beauty. Every initiatory step has led me to a surprising new miracle.
Through this commitment, I began to weave a life of my design. An original masterpiece. A passionate life. And all that really means is that I have begun to deeply, sincerely enjoy the experience of being myself.
One of the greatest regrets of human beings on their deathbeds is that they wish they had enjoyed their lives more. I want to help people enjoy the feeling of being themselves.
And I know from experience that this path works. Especially when it is done from a place of authentic creativity and devoted love.
This is what inspired me to create the League of Queens program and share my favorite, most effective ritual tools in this unique immersive event as a starting point for you to begin to rediscover yourself, enjoy yourself, and claim a life on fire. I hope to share the magic with you.
A passionate life is not a one-and-done process. It is a way of being that seeks wholeness and truth, and savors the vivid feelings that honor this authentic expression.
No one else can give you this, because only you can realize what it means for you. Each woman’s passionate life is as unique as a snowflake.
This immersive is not a 6-week solution. But with your participation and enthusiasm, it can be a quantum leap with immediate shifts, and course-correct you toward your destiny in ways that will continue to be revealed for months and even years to come. ‘Rites of Passion’ has been designed with care as an intentional map to begin this lifelong love story with yourself.
Our first online-only League of Queens immersion corresponds with the changing seasons and the final autumn moon cycle to harvest the seeds of 2022 and prepare us for a rich winter rebirth into more aliveness.
With once-weekly connection circles and online workshops, we build in space for participants to explore the material with adaptiveness to their individual schedules, while still staying immersed in the process by maintaining a close container for the arc of the 6-week ceremony.
Each week, we will dive into one primary element of passion and explore our relationship to it, both privately with the self, and in the supportive arms of community.
There will be a “Rite of Passion” offered every week, which is our shared activation, and the symbolic threshold of our initiation into a new relationship with this aspect of self-expression.
Each week will also include a passion practice, journaling prompts, inspirational tips & tools for the respective theme, and rituals to shape in your own creative signature, as well as ample opportunity for connection, guidance, and support within our circle.
The presence and energy that you invest into this process will support how much you gain from the immediate journey, but all of the material can be absorbed at your own pace, and revisited beyond the dates of our container, again and again.
Uncork the fire-potion of your fullest power and reclaim your respect for the rage that has been hushed into exile. In Week 1, we dare to unlock and unleash any anger that we have denied expression, to clear a path to deeper hidden truths and reignite the hearth of the heart.
Savor the sensual. Explore decadence and deservingness through pleasure in all forms. In Week 2, we embrace Enjoyment and its key codes of passionate presence through all of the senses.
Amplify your intention through ritual in the generous power of the new moon.
Lay down the armor, unclench your fists, and let the tears come. Soften. Open more. In Week 3 we will explore the deeper waters of grief, sorrow, and release, cooling the furious fires that protect them.
Make a statement. Pronounce your sacred truth. Give life to your authentic expression. Week 4 is all about creativity as multi-dimensional voice. Together, we will write, sing, and make the imminent art our soul longs to speak out, amplified by ritual with the full moon.
Desire is the great substrate of all of creation, exiled by shame. Week 5 explores our relationship to wanting, attraction, self-worth, and abundance. Reconnected with our bravest truth in present-time, we will practice answering the most essential question: “What do I really want?”
Open your heart, let your true colors shine, and be the first person to applaud yourself. How does it feel? Our final rite is all about celebrating the self, exactly as she is. Find your edge - the one where you play small - and dance right past it into freedom.
Anchor the journey with gratitude through a Winter Solstice closing ritual.
If your answer to any of these questions is Yes, or, if you just want to have fun experimenting with what passion looks and feels like in your life, this offering is for you.
