My name is Ava (pronounced A-va), and it's a pleasure to welcome you into my sacred corner of this wild world of the web. Here you will find some of the ways I express my energy, my service, and my art in the world.
Embodied Earth Arts
Storytelling through spoken word poems, dance, and ritual performance arts is one of the ways I've discovered to remain in my body and heart and alchemize feeling into art. It is also one of the ways I've found to be a voice for social justice and evolutionary change on the planet.
It is an ode to the Artist and Lover that lives within each of us. It is the restoration of the Artist and the Lover through the Healing Path.
For those who are on the precipice of change, having a midwife to support, mirror, and guide the process is highly influential. I utilize an array of trauma-informed therapeutic and intuitive skills and life experiences to support such processes. This relationship is for people who are committed to showing up for change.
This is a high-touch, transformational 9-month container designed to serve spiritually inclined women and leaders on their journey of embodiment and empowerment - becoming an evolutionary ally in the movement towards a more loving and just world. The next cohort is scheduled for March 2025.
Opening and deepening in the comfort of home. These offerings are intended to be brief and highly concentrated, seeding ideas and creating a contextual framework that can support deeper embodiment, expression, and empowerment. You will find them categorized into Erotic Aliveness, The Voice, and Rhythmic Intelligence. COMING SOON.
Retreats & Gatherings
After running an (ayahuasca) retreat business for 7 years, I have arrived at a place of only being interested in collective gatherings - gatherings that utilize and celebrate the embodiment of a variety of different voices and ways. You will find all of my retreats and gathering offerings over at the S.H.E. Collective, offered alongside dear sisters and brothers.
S.H.E. Collective is the home of a collaborative culture that intends to serve the return to the body, the earth, and to relational intimacy. S.H.E. hosts gatherings and retreats that serve the collective and the emergent future that is being born through our togetherness.
The ethos of S.H.E is anchored in a revival of reverent relationship to the sacred passages of birth and death. It highlights a culture of celebration - of how we pray, heal, laugh, and grieve - and how we be with the seasons of change, as well as the collective pains of life.
