3 Pillars to Actualize Your Destiny


Ancient Ayurvedic Wisdom

+ Modern Life-Mastery Skills 

Heal your body and your life. Healing the body requires so much more than healing the body. To be truly healed means bringing light to all the dark places in our life.


Community & Like-minded Friends

The most powerful force for creating lasting healing and transformation is not a doctor or some pills, but the power of community. Plus it's way more fun! Learn and live Ayurveda in a supportive online community of women.

Our Mission

To empower the feminine qualities of love, compassion and care to rise on the planet by empowering big hearted healers to find their voice, follow their own inner guidance and reclaim their power, purpose, and birthright as self, family and community healers and leaders so that together we co-create heaven on earth. 

Our Community Vision & Values

We are a grassroots community movement who believe there is more to health than healing the body. We believe radiant health comes from a radiant life. We value health and balance in all areas of our life. Including such things as: our body, our environment, our relationships, our creative expression, our sense of purpose, our sense of connection to nature and something greater than ourselves, our sense of adventure, our ability to speak our truth, and our ability to actualize our soul's deepest yearnings. We realize the interdependence of all of life and understand that our health and happiness are intricately interwoven with the web of all of life. Therefore, we educate ourselves, our children and communities to reprioritize nature, nurturance and compassion over profit, power and consumption.
