5th Annual Goddess Rising: In Celebration of International Women's Day 2017

Goddess Rising is a day of sisterhood in celebration of International Women's Day. Goddess Rising was created to bring women together for a day to learn from one another, celebrate our diversity and our similarities, and encourage each other to be true to ourselves. With special guest, Donna Hartt, The Mountain Medium. 

A truly amazing line-up of local speakers & workshop contributors is ready to inspire, share wisdom, & elevate a culture of sisterhood for all women. Sign up for a series of sessions and celebrate sisterhood!

Goddess Rising is a FREE event; donations at the door will be gratefully received for the Goddess Rising Scholarship for Young Women.

EMBRACE is a social impact documentary that explores the issue of body image. The project has been supported by nearly 9000 Kickstarter pledgers who responded to a fundraising trailer I released in 2014, which has now had over 25 million internet views.

EMBRACE had its world premiere at the 2016 Sydney Film Festival, where it made it into the festival directors’ top 5 picks and was nominated for the Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Best Documentary.
