I’m Alison and I’m so happy you’ve landed here, because best believe if you did, it’s for a reason.
My mission is to bring the Mature Feminine home to Herself through self-devotion. I guide women around 40 years and up in Spiritual, Sensual & Sexual Energetic Mastery.
In my coaching practice, I support over-working, over-giving, exhausted women who crave a sensually vibrant life to find the balance between their Masculine & Feminine energies so that you can RELAX, SOFTEN & ENJOY a life that feels juicy, alive and full of beautiful manifestations, but also more gentle on your mind, body & spirit.
I do this by creating safe, sacred space of spiritual and sensual mastery for women to unfold, unravel, dive deep and expand through a 12-month women’s temple circle and my 1:1 coaching practice. The vibe of these women’s spaces are no rushing, no forcing, no needing to “get anywhere” – but space to soften and open up (emotionally & energetically) in an organic way (just like a rose in the garden) – the Feminine Way.
I guide passionate midlife women into their power through LOVE. We’re no longer in our Maiden phase. The Mother (and Post-Mother/Wiser Woman) archetypal phases (around the ages 40-60) are a time in a woman’s life for deeper mastery. You’re not at the beginning and you’re not near the end – and this in-between time is a period of ripening into your fullest Sacred Feminine expression.
I dubbed myself the Queen of Shadow Work, because I support you in powerful, heart-opening transformation and integrative shadow work in a way that feels lighter, more playful and definitely more relatable! I do this through my podcast, Radiant Alchemy, and by holding intimate sacred space/circles for other deeply sensual, spiritual and visionary women of the world.
My coaching method is all about making spiritual and personal growth more relatable, because honestly, when I first got started, I hardly resonated with the teachings out there. There was a lot of rigid dogma and shit that just didn’t inspire me at all. I felt like I didn’t belong in most groups of spiritual people or in most of the coaching circles, either – particularly in regards to the “Priestess” and “Sisterhood” circles, which mostly felt too young for me. I craved depth and more focus on the post-Maiden phase of the Feminine (late 30s-mid-50s). So, instead of trying to fit in, I created my own lane, baby!
My method is about integrating both the Sacred Feminine and Masculine (yin/yang) energetics, like creative expression and sensual embodiment practices (yin energies) along with grounded, potent & radically honest guidance and structure (yang energies). You get the best of BOTH worlds, here!
In regards to the Feminine Energetics, I was called to explore the priestess path many years ago, when I was repeatedly receiving signs and synchronicity about the Taoist and Tantric arts, Mary Magdalene and the Sisterhood of the Rose and the ancient High Feminine Arts. 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.
And that’s how my idea for Return of Venus was born, a Sensual Embodiment Series (and Venus representing the Divine Feminine Energy) – to support women in focusing on their YIN (feminine) energy and as a way to shift 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 devotion and nourishing ourselves simply because we exist.
Return of Venus supports overworking, over-giving, type-A women to get out of their heads and tuned into their body, sensuality and intuition. The embodiment practices are also a foundational way to rewire the nervous system to be able to give and receive more energy with EASE. This is how we expand – through the body as our vessel. I created the embodiment practices as a gentle, fun alternative to mainstream mindfulness practices, since a lot of people find “traditional” meditation too rigid or boring, so they skip it altogether.
Now I blend the feminine flow and my masculine training from over a decade in the corporate world to support my fellow Mature, Wild Women in both group and 1:1 coaching/mentorship experiences to grow and expand in a way that’s deep, yet still feels lighter and more fun.
