There is no force more powerful than a woman or man determined to rise
— Paola DeLucca

I am Woman.

Vulnerable yet powerful.

Soft but fierce.

Loving yet wild.

Receptive but strong.

A fire in my belly, creation stirring in my womb.

A truth in my words, illusion dying in my presence.

Divine Feminine embodied.

Divine Masculine embraced.

I am here to rise. I am here to serve.

Will you join me?


* I wrote the words above in an inspired moment last year. I don't consider myself a poet, but this spilled out on to the page exactly as it is, no editing required, within a few short minutes. May these words uplift and encourage you as you journey through this course, whether you identify as a woman or a man xx


Congratulations for investing in yourself and taking this step towards your dream life and everything you’ve ever wanted. Sadly, so many people sit around waiting, wishing, hoping for their lives to change without actually taking any responsibility or action... so you deserve to be acknowledged for your decision to embark on this journey.

I am honoured to guide you through releasing your self-doubt, self-sabotage, trauma, pain, perfectionism, judgement, resistance, shame, guilt, worry, fear... All that junk that is weighing you down and has you feeling 'stuck'.

This course offers you real life, practical tools and lessons; that use the principles of neuroscience, metaphysics, psychology, new age thought and ancient wisdom. It has the power to genuinely change your life.



I want to let you know upfront that there's no such thing as 'behind' in this course. I have horrible memories of teachers berating me for not doing my homework, and tutors failing me for assignments handed in far too late. None of that here, thanks very much.

This is a space free of judgement, pressure, shame and guilt.

No one will judge you for approaching this course in the way that best works for you. You might be the personality type to dive right in, bingeing on the lessons and completing all exercises in quick succession. Maybe you'll just dip your toe in here and there, skipping some exercises and trying others. Perhaps you'll spread the content out over a couple of months. All of this is fine. This is your personal journey, and there is no wrong way to approach it.




Please don’t feel as though you have to consume all of the course content, and do all of the exercises during the next 6 weeks.

The work in this course is something that you gradually incorporate into your daily life;

rather than something you tick off as complete and are done with.

Your healing through this course is an ongoing process, a way of life. We cannot heal and change everything within a day. The course is about incremental growth, change and improvements. So please don’t get overwhelmed by perfectionism and put pressure on yourself to do everything - you don’t need to do everything in the course to get great results.

You will feel called and inspired to do some exercises, and may leave others. That’s okay. Trust that you will get whatever you most need, every time you approach the course. Remember that you have lifetime access to the course content, so you can revisit it over and over again, uncovering new layers and reaching new levels of spiritual self-development each time.

Just do the exercises that you feel called to do; but, having said that - please be sure to do SOMETHING. And that brings me to my next point, resistance…




Taking action to change your life can feel scary.

As humans, we're creatures of habit, wired to fear change. Attempting to better your circumstances can mean you experience procrastination, avoidance and resistance. As you engage with the course, you might experience things like:

  • feeling suddenly sleepy

  • wanting to get up and walk away from the computer

  • an urge to open your fridge and stare at the interior, or mindlessly grab something to eat

  • your mind rationalising why it’s ‘best to leave the exercises for 'another day'‘, or even ignore all of the course completely…

I totally get it. I experience resistance all the time.

When my big goal was to become a circus performer, I would enrol in numerous expensive training courses throughout the year... and attend at most one class - often none at all - for the entire term. On a couple of occasions I managed to fight through the resistance and travel all the way to the training school... only to freeze at the door, let fear overwhelm me, and return home without ever going inside. Seriously. And this pattern has shown up again and again in different areas of my life, over many years.

I know how powerful resistance can be.

This course was 90% completed FOR SO LONG. So long! I knew there were people who needed it. I knew it could totally change lives. I knew I had a responsibility to send it out into the world. Yet… resistance and procrastination kept it hidden, saved on my computer, for almost 12 months. I had to work through my own stuff enough to get it to you - and I sure am glad I did. I’m certain you’ll be glad too!

The cool thing is that the tools I used to overcome that resistance, are all inside this course! So you can use them too.

They're tools that I've found truly transformational.

Here is a follow-along video that uses a powerful tool called ‘Tapping’ (‘EFT’) to clear resistance.

Use it when you feel paralysed or resistant to taking action.

We cover Tapping in depth in Module 3: Release; but I want you to have a taste of it from the get-go, and to be able to rely on it to support you should resistance and procrastination come up.


 Here's the thing:

Leaving stuff for later means that you’re probably unlikely to do it. You pile up enough 'tomorrows'… and you'll find you're left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays and a heap of regret. 

Your time is NOW, and you are ready for this.

Trust that you've been led here, now, for a reason.

You matter. Your desires matter. Your healing matters.

If you do experience fear, resistance and procrastination around this course, just gently remind yourself that you're human. Your resistance behaviour is normal, but it’s not helping you move forward.


And then jump back into the course as soon as you can.

I'll be right here, cheering you on.
