About Rising Woman

Hey there,

I’m Shay! I Founded Rising Woman in 2015 after holding the vision in my heart for many years.

In the photo below to my right is Heather, my Co-Facilitator, and Co-Founder who joined the Rising  Woman vision in 2018.

We have come together to bring you this next evolution of Rising Woman so that we may be of greater service to our local and global communities.

Together, we’re carrying this vision forward with the intention to create a safe space for women to reclaim their power, find their voice, and become responsible for their lives in an empowered, harmonious way.

We are trained facilitators and guides of shadow-work, conscious relationship, breathwork, and tantric practices. Having spent 5 years apprenticing under a transpersonal therapist, we immersed ourselves in group therapy chambers and esoteric shadow work to prepare ourselves to bring forth this mission in an integral way.

Before bringing our trainings online, Heather and I co-facilitated weekly women’s groups and live shadow work and Conscious Relationship workshops. Our current offering is the Heal Your Relationships Program. An 8-Week Journey into the Heart of Your Relationship Patterns.

Heather has also trained in tantra, psychedelic somatic therapy and sound healing. I’m a trained Doula, having gone through multiple certification programs, including a full-spectrum training with midwife Molly Dutton-Kenney. In addition to my studies of family systems through the Satir Model, my husband and I continue to learn through the Gottman Institute and Harville Hendrix.

Heather and I had been collaborating creatively and spiritually for some time, and we’re excited to have a dedicated place to share our hearts, musings, and creative offerings with you.
