Something about us
To empower women’s wellness internationally through the use of visual storytelling.
For humanity to live as one with kindness, integrity and respect for each other. Through sharing real human experiences, together we can soften and grow to see each other without the labels that divide us. For each woman to live freely and speak her truth as her most unique brilliant self without fear, control or shame.
We are a team of women made up of a health practitioners with backgrounds in public speaking, mind-body practices, nutrition, television production, martial arts, energy healing and naturopathic medicine.
We travel to meet transformative women in communities around the world whose actions have inspired us.
First- We experience women’s day-to-day environments (work, school, home, spiritual centers,etc.) to see life through their lens.
Second- We connect and collaborate with women through engaging conversations around the complexities of what it means to be a woman and the roles they take on in society.
Third- We provide active engagements of mind-body exercises, nutrition education, meditation, breathwork, and self-defense that gives women the opportunity to release, integrate and transform their experiences.
Fourth- We provide space for women to share their experiences, wisdom and life lessons that have allowed them to overcome obstacles and become leaders in their families and community.
Fifth- We share the stories of women through film to a global audience to inspire the women of tomorrow.
What we do
Our focus is to inspire women and elevate them from their challenges in everyday life. Sharing personal stories of success is an act of self-empowerment that builds hope and inspires others to overcome fears and lack of confidence. It has the potential to inspire those who have forgotten to believe in themselves.

Empowering girls and women are powerful. Today, we know it is the key to economic growth, political stability, and social transformation.
We use our stories to ignite and fuel social movements. People from countries such as India, Nepal, and Panama are reaching out to us for future involvements with them. Feel free to volunteer, connect and unite in our endeavors for a better and stronger international sisterhood.
