DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT SUCCESS LOOKS LIKE FOR YOURSELF BUT SELF DOUBT AND SOCIETY’S IDEA OF WHAT IT SHOULD BE STOP YOU IN YOUR TRACKS?
Have you been searching for a safe, judgement-free community of people who are ready for a change and create magic together?
were raised in an environment that did not support your high growth and creative potential and now struggle with letting yourself DREAM BIG because you are constantly tired and exhausted
feel like self care is a constant struggle and an inconvenience to incorporate into your life so you can't seem to follow through on projects due to burnout
feel that your multi-passionate lifestyle stops you from moving forward in your business and goals because you don't have the right support, structures or procrastinate due to indecision (Should I be a healer or entrepreneur? Should I focus on Social Justice or Art?)
You deserve a lot more than what people, society or any oppressive system has convinced you of.
You are a powerful force of nature that does not need to follow conventional norms in order to succeed or find joy
Do not be afraid of your power... not anymore! Now is your time to shine!
YOU CAN UP-LEVEL YOUR CREATIVE FREEDOM WITHOUT SACRIFICING YOUR VALUES OR YOUR SOUL. YOU CAN INTEGRATE ALL OF WHO YOU ARE, ALL OF YOUR GIFTS, SKILLS AND PASSIONS AND CREATE SUCCESS ON YOUR OWN TERMS WITHOUT LOSING YOURSELF
YES, THIS IS POSSIBLE FOR YOU!
I am so proud and honored to invite you to a program I created based on many years of selling Aromatherapy Self Care Potions and listening to countless women & femmes share their needs with me and I have spent years developing this Self Care Alchemy process to now share with you. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars curating a shelf full of essential oils and spa products- instead of searching for the newest shiny object, crystal, potion, spiritual self care box- what we all crave is a new way of life, more space, more freedom- less physical, psychic and mental clutter. No one taught us how to create this life we deeply desire on our own terms. This is why I created:
Self Care Alchemy is a 3 month journey that will guide you in creating structures of self support for nourishing your mind, body & soul with Vibrant Energy.
INTUITION + STRUCTURE + GROUP MAGIC
I understand that we are in a pandemic and life doesn't look the way it used to.
Political distractions pulling at us all day long, not by choice.
Social movements tugging at our heartstrings pleading us to help make a difference but HOW? ...we are emotionally exhausted.
What if you had the tools, the encouragement and the energetic practices to feel hopeful again or even better... what if you felt empowered, refreshed and inspired again during this unprecedented time in history and finally took action on that side hustle, finally finished that passion project and created a lifestyle that is exactly what you need to be the kind of healer, parent, artist, social entrepreneur you imagine yourself to be. What would that look like for you?
When you feel supported and nourished by these self care structures and by the collective energy and intelligence of a group:
You will be FEARLESS, but not reckless, no longer falling into patterns of self neglect.
You will have CLARITY on your next steps and making decisions will not feel so overwhelming.
You will be COMMITTED to your inner work and projects, yet, be open, flexible and learn to co-create with Life on a deeper level
Did you know that holding on to old beliefs and stories about yourself are a big part of why you feel depleted and exhausted?
I no longer allow my past to define me.
You will experience and learn the same process I used in order to stop believing the lies I was told at a young age after being told by high school teachers I would not succeed in life. This process helped me give up trying so hard to be the "perfect" mom to make up for insecurities I adopted as a teen and overcome overwhelm and exhaustion from always over-giving and over-doing because I never thought anything I did was good enough-
Performing with Mezklah on stage at El Zocalo in Mexico City, Mexico 2005
Performance Art with my son, Copal, in my belly in Oaxaca, Mexico 2003
I started to feel empowered, transform old beliefs I had about myself, feel comfortable about who I was, started expressing myself and realized that the vision I had for my life didn't have to look like anyone else's. Caring for myself on a holistic level- mind, body & soul- made it all possible.
Things I never thought were possible started showing up in my life

NAHA Conference as Regional Director, flight & hotel paid for by NAHA, 2018
We all need to learn the truth about the power and potential we have when we have support and the right environment to nurture our gifts and talents.
We ARE good enough. We DO DESERVE more.
Together, we are unstoppable!
No more waiting for the "perfect time" the time is NOW.
The systems of self care you will learn in this program were created with research and evidence-based information collected over years of study from aromatherapy case studies, hypnotherapy and transformative learning. You will learn how to use these new tools and techniques on a holistic level and you will finally feel free to be who you truly are and leave behind whatever has been holding you back from feeling at peace with who you are, the work you do & your creative expression. It is not your will power that needs to become stronger, it is the belief you have about yourself.
You can bloom where you are planted.
I am committed to practicing these skills and rituals with you so that you can start experiencing:
Vibrant energy for enjoying life and a feeling of well-being.
Spiritual practices and creating a nourishing sacred space in your home.
Better relationships with your children and your loved ones.
Honoring your body with movement, dance or a new workout routine.
Passion projects like art, blogging, home organizing & decorating.
Making time to enjoy the little things in life, like going for walks or just relaxing at home peacefully reading a book- guilt-free!
FINALLY take that next step you have been wanting to take or FINALLY take a break, rest & recharge, without the guilt.
When you are equipped with the right tools + safe, judgement-free community you will be fully capable of creating a life fueled by your passion projects and/or navigate work and life in a more loving and graceful way.
You can create a positive impact in the world, take care of your responsibilities and also enjoy your life.
Everyone's needs can be met : )
No more shrinking No more self neglect No more silencing your voice No more disconnection from yourself No more giving your power away
I would love for you to join us! Your presence in our Sacred Circle will be a gift for you, me and the world.
We will create a new culture of self care for social action together. Everyone wins.
I have only shared these personal power practices with private clients in my aromatherapy consultations and for the first time ever, I am excited to go through this process of cultivating my own growth alongside you, while creating our self care for social action community and sacred circle. CLICK HERE to choose a date and time for us to talk. I would love to get to know you and we can both find out if this program is right for you.
We will do this together because the practice of empowerment and transformation is a community effort.

This course is not for you if:
You are not open to different spiritual beliefs-We will not be praying in this program but we will be meditating and using visualization techniques and sometimes use words like Higher Self or Divine Source. You can be spiritual, religious or non-religious. This is a space for open minded people. Brujas, Christians and Pagans are all welcome. I don't want you to hide who you are. I want you to be fully yourself when we come together in sacred circle. I want to be open and honest about who I am and where I stand in my beliefs so that we all practice accepting ourselves fully. I have neglected parts of myself by hiding who I am in the past and it has hurt my soul. This is not a healthy way to live.
You don't like supporting others- The practice of RECEIVING & GIVING energetically is a huge part of our time together during our live sacred circles and in order to learn how to fully care for yourself and receive support from others you will also get to practice listening deeply and compassionately to others in our circle.
You are judgmental of people's sexual orientation & gender identity- My spiritual, big heart has room for all religions and identities, but does not tolerate hate. Please delete yourself from my email list if this is you. I would like to be upfront about this because this is a holistic program that requires transparency on my part in order for our sacred space to feel safe. All people, including women-identifying, nonbinary people and gender nonconforming people are welcome.
You think racially offensive language isn't harmful- This needs to be said so that all who join this sacred community of love and non-judgement feel safe and supported. Micro-aggressions and racially offensive language will not be tolerated and I am committed to keeping all participants, especially BIPOC, free of harmful language and behaviors.
You are not ready for change- I so honor your journey and if you are not ready for change or choose not to do this work in a group setting that is totally ok! This program is all about stepping into a new identity and letting go of old habits and mindsets. If you only want to learn about aromatherapy, this program may not be for you... however, if you want to experience a transformation in your life but have some fear around it, let's talk! Fear is healthy, it can be transformed into excitement and inspiration!
Don't let fear stop you from the life you want. In fact, if you have a few butterflies in your stomach as you are reading this I am soooooo excited for you! This means you are SO READY!
Transform your fear and self doubt into inspired action
Be an empathic warrior for yourself and others
Be courageously inspired and allow your voice to be heard
Unapologetically love and accept who you are and express yourself creatively
No longer tolerate the hamster wheel of emotions that keep holding you back
Forgive yourself for being stuck in an old story
Move forward in your life and follow your passion
Open your heart to yourself and others and take action on your true calling
Play fully without holding anything back and stop feeling excluded
What if you were able to reprogram your mind from society's unfair and unrealistic expectations of you? What would you create with this newfound energy and belief in yourself?
Who am I to guide you through this?
As a Chicana born and raised in Los Angeles to parents from Yucatan, Mexico, I attended a high school in the 90's where I and many other students were not expected to graduate. School-to-Prison-Pipeline is a real thing (ACLUNC) The fact that teachers and society can disempower, as opposed to empower people, may be shocking for some of you to hear but for those of us called to create social change in the world, this is nothing new and understand this is the reality of the world we live in- But this change we want to create needs to start within us first. Structures did not exist to support someone like me to succeed, so I created my own Self Care Rituals as structures of self support. I co-created with the plants, the moon, the sun and joined healing communities like, sweat lodges and women's circles where we shared resources about natural cycles of nature and how this medicine can help us tap into our inner wisdom in order for us to become who we are meant to be. Within my community, a common theme appeared, when our soul was fulfilled, it inspired us to want to make a difference in the world, going from women's circles to volunteering at community gardens and social justice centers. This is where my vision of "Self Care for Social Action" came to be. I now use my own experience of transformation to empower others because I remember what it was like to feel disempowered. I have held myself back due to shame of my past but then I made a choice to empower myself. I could not have done any of this without the help of my guides and mentors. It's time for me to pass along these teachings and continue my love of learning from you and many others I have yet to cross paths with. I can't wait to meet you.
My intention for creating Self Care Alchemy is for every person who joins this course to create a beautiful and empowering story out of every challenge they have ever had.
How will this course be different from other Self Care courses? I will not be giving you information and self care recipes that you can find just anywhere on the internet. This program is something you need to experience for yourself and the aromatherapy recipes I share with you are my personal recipes created out of 15+ years of aromatherapy education and research. This will not just be an information based course. Every week you will have the opportunity to implement the practices you learn in the lessons. And the weekly sacred circles are there to support you, keep you accountable and are unlike anything you've ever experienced. The Self Care Alchemy process combines, aromatherapy (optional, but recommended), ritual, the moon phases and a transformative process to help you break through your inner barriers. What if I don't like being part of live groups? Is this course still worth it?
Yes! You do not need to attend the weekly live circles to receive value from them or you may attend with your camera off until you feel comfortable being visible. Of course we would all love to see you, but how you choose to participate in this program is up to you. You will gain lots of knowledge through watching the recordings and you can share the progress you have made on our online community platform so that we cheer you on, celebrate your wins and create accountability. In the weekly live circle we will start with an opening centering meditation that you can practice on your own, powerful questions to inspire breakthroughs and by listening to other people's questions and answers you will receive insights of your own. Recordings will be available for the main part of our session, however, if you would like laser coaching, you will have to attend live, as these are not recorded due to their personal and private nature. You also can email me directly with questions you have throughout the course.
What If I already have a full schedule, will this course take up too much of my time?
The pre-recorded lessons are only 20 minutes long and the assignments will only enhance the daily routines you already have in place in order to support and shift your awareness in a way that will help you feel more confident and relaxed throughout your day. If you have a difficult time finding time to focus on you, this program is absolutely your first step toward creating sacred self care. Most women have a difficult time making time for themselves on their own but I find that if you make a commitment to someone else, (like to showing up and joining us in sacred circle) you will most likely keep your word. Imagine what it would feel like to set aside 90 minutes every other week to be part of a sacred circle that gives you permission to focus on YOU? This is exactly why I created this course, for people like you who do not have a practice of creating their own self care circle, physically or energetically. You will not be alone on this journey, I will be your guide and the other participants will be cheering you on as well! I am open to any other support you need in order to help make it easier for you to attend our live meetings.
Is this program for me if I have small children but no childcare?
Of course! You can join our call with your child next to you, sitting on your lap or breastfeeding your baby... this is a judgement-free zone! If your video is too distracting for the participants, I will suggest to turn off your video and then turn it back on when you are ready. This sacred space is for YOU, who you are in this moment. And who you are is an empathic, loving mother. I have attended sacred gatherings in the past without my children and WITH my children. Having them by my side (and sometimes on my boob!) was a magical experience for us both. I take pride in including my children in everything I do and am happy they got to experience and absorb grounded and meditative energy, and your children will too! Whether they will be by your side on these calls or not, you will be sharing your experience and your energy with them long after our calls together. Don't miss out on opportunities you feel called to participate in because it will not look exactly how you envision it. The sacred space we are creating together is for your personal growth and evolution, we are all encouraged to be brilliant and imperfect together!
Will we be learning astrology in this program? No. I am not an astrologer and I will not provide education on astrology. I will share some practices for having a deeper connection with the natural world and this includes learning how I use the phases of the moon for planning projects and self care rituals.
Will we will be learning how to use essential oils and aromatherapy in this program? Yes. We will be learning a basic understanding of using essential oils safely and effectively for creating self care rituals. I am not part of multilevel marketing companies (such as Young Living or doTerra) and I do not promote them. However, I will be sharing reliable aromatherapy resources I trust for you to purchase essential oils if you need to and you may or may not receive an aromatic surprise from me in the mail.... hmmm... you will have to join and see...
