I’m Alison and I’m so happy you’ve been guided here.
I’m passionate about infusing the Sacred Feminine and Masculine energies back into your life through art, beauty, ceremony, devotion, love, mindfulness practices, pleasure, ritual and sensuality.
I was called to explore the priestess path many years ago, when I was repeatedly receiving signs and synchronicity about the tantric arts, Mary Magdalene and the Sisterhood of the Rose. After coming across the book, The Magdalen Manuscript, by Tom Kenyon many moons ago, along with a serendipitous meeting with an established Tantra teacher, my life began to dramatically shift as I was guided to delve deeper into these ancient mysteries of energy healing and sacred sexuality.
In addition to that, my total exhaustion from the self “help” industry (focused on “fixing” and controlling) led me to burnout, despite all the best intentions to be well. I wanted a NEW way to take great care of myself. A way that felt sweeter, softer and more pleasurable. A way that centered on intuitive knowing and sensuality. Self-care that actually felt GOOD (sans any guilt or shame). Mindfulness practices that I looked forward to doing (without the rules, dogma or rigidity) that honored the feminine, cyclical nature of energetic and emotional ebbs and flows; a way to nourish and nurture the mind, body and soul. During a year of priestess practices with a beloved mentor, I knew it was time to share this with other women.
And that’s how my idea for Return of Venus was born. The Radiant Temple Arts for Women. Your body is your temple of wisdom and power, as well as your vessel for the Divine to channel through you. It’s yearning for your love and devotion.
As a gift to women to shift away from the collective obsession of using “self care” as a way to “fix ourselves” into the deeper realization that we’re whole, complete and absolutely worthy of nourishing ourselves simply because we exist, rather than as a way to prove our worth or to try and “heal” ourselves in order to be enough. And as a devotional path for a Return of the Priestess in this lifetime, to create temple space for other women to remember their soul’s wisdom and to reclaim their sensual/sexual sovereignty through ritual, shadow alchemy and embodiment practices.
You are already enough, exactly as you are right now.
This is how we rebirth the true sacredness of the Divine Feminine & Divine Masculine energies through our vessels – our bodies. Through integration of our light AND shadow, we discover a remembrance of our wholeness.
Nurturing of our temple (both our body and our physical spaces) is essential for holistic wellness.
I believe in mindful, intentional living and beautiful, curated spaces that reflect your soul aesthetic and support your overall health and wellbeing. Our home environment is just as much a reflection of our inner state and has the capacity to foster a safe, healing, sacred space to flourish and thrive, which is why I offer feng shui guidance along with my mentorship offerings.
I’ve combined my extensive background in luxury hospitality and over a decade of experience as a healing arts practitioner, with a special focus on rebirthing the Divine Feminine and Masculine energies, to create transformational experiences where you feel supported in embodying your essence.
I also have an affinity for espresso, luxurious fabrics, making playlists, spa life (I could easily live my best life between the bath and loungewear), irreverent humor (my fav show is Schitt’s Creek) and walks in nature.
I’ve has been featured in Ocean Drive Magazine, Coveteur, Racked, Bustle, Ignite Intimacy Podcast, Total Beauty, MindBodyGreen, and on Own Your Power Radio as an expert in women’s wellness, sexuality and the spiritual growth industry.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude/Phi Beta Kappa from the University of New Hampshire majoring in Communication and Fine Arts. I spent a decade in the luxury art and hospitality industry in both NYC and Miami, working with a high-end art gallery in Soho, NYC and with companies such as The Ritz-Carlton and Canyon Ranch.
I received my holistic health coaching certification from the widely-renowned Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I’ve been practicing yoga for over 20 years and am trained as a 200 hour registered yoga teacher. I believe strongly in the power of meditation and breathwork as a form of daily self-care.
I’m a certified feng shui consultant (Feng Shui from the Heart) and have an extensive healing arts background as a practitioner, seeing clients privately both in-person and virtually, for over a decade.
I’ve trained in tarot, astrology, akashic records, level 3 reiki master, previous student of Tantra teacher Psalm Isadora and priestess initiate of the Sacred Rose Mystery School, NLP practitioner, 4th level blue belt in Shito Ryu karate, licensed massage therapist and have been both a barre and Equinox-certified pilates mat instructor.
