Get All Lit up...

a weekend with Alexa and Devon Gillott...

lifted up by women

to quench the soul...

and nourish the mind...

You might notice that I love getting my photo taken. I’ll admit it. One big reason? I love my photographer Devon Gillott and how she really “sees” me. Having my photo taken has become another way to let my light shine, express myself and really unleash my creative and adventurous spirit. And getting the animals involved (and giggling uncontrollably when they attempt to photo bomb all our shots) just adds to the fun. But, here’s the thing. It wasn’t too long ago that I felt incredibly self-conscious having my photo taken and typically avoided looking at myself in photos. And a big piece of my healing journey has been to love, accept and embrace all of me and let it shine out into the world!

Devon comes to the farm just 3 times a year for my All Lit up Private Intensives, a powerful one-on-one experience with myself, Devon and our magical hair and makeup master Vicky. These three experiences fill up quickly each year, leaving many women wondering how they too can get out of their own way and in front of the lens. And I gotta say, I could watch these kind of transformations happen a million times over! So after chatting with Devon, we’ve decided to do a All Lit Up group intensive to finish off our 2015 All Lit Up season! It’s happening on the weekend of October 3 and 4th. And it’s open to just 6 special women.

This weekend is for you if you really want to have your photo taken, to capture the real you in front of the lens, but feel self-conscious or shy, if you know you need a photo for your business, your website or a work profile but you feel terrified of being in front of the camera. It’s especially for you if you are beyond ready to let go of all that old fear about being seen and truly rock all your awesome out in front of the camera.

So what are we all up to for these two powerful days together? Alexa will be leading group BodyTalk sessions (to let go of any hang ups about shining in front of the camera), visual coaching exercises and mindset work, movement and embodiment practices, and introducing participants to the magic of working with her horse Diva and the herd. We’ll also be enjoying delicious organic picnic lunches, professional makeup and hair advice and help with the fabulous Vicky P and then a fabulous 20 minute photo shoot with the incomparable Devon Gillott…you get the picture (pardon the pun). Plus you get a disk from Devon filled with photos capturing the authentic beautiful you and a new truth-filled sense of yourself and your beauty (priceless!).

It’s going to be a transformation like no other.

Is this your year to shine?

There are 6 spots available for the All Lit up Group Intensive on Oct 3-4, 2015 with Devon Gillott and myself. Is one yours?

Yes, I'm in!

After the all Lit Up Program I have experienced an amazing amount of self acceptance and have really embraced the freedom it has given me. I am now, much more able to receive compliments–to actually hear them and believe them. I have noticed a general freedom and open-ness since the program. I have embraced my feminine side with very little self consciousness, and it has been great. When I completed the program Alexa asked me if she could write about my session/results. She also asked if she could use one of my photos. I without hesitation said yes, and then I surprised myself, I asked which photo she was planning to use. In the past I would have looked over myself in the photos and been relentless in finding which photo had the least amount of faults and this time I just saw me! I would definitely recommend this experience to others because even though it is tough to face your inner critic, if you want your life to change you have to push yourself out side of your comfort zone. If you are willing to do that, it works and it is so much fun!

The day was amazing. I was excited and nervous at the same time but Alexa made me feel right at home straight away with a freshly squeezed juice that was very tasty and then left me alone with my thoughts and a journal in a comfortable chair in the sun with a beautiful view of the lake and the sun spreading its warmth all around. As the day progressed I found myself surrounded by loving, caring women who wanted nothing more than to make this day special for me. With past experiences it has not been easy for me to put my trust in women so to leave myself completely in their hands was a big step for me. I was not disappointed. It was an incredible day for opening up and stepping into my life. I felt very alive and supported that day and it was so much fun. I wanted to share my joy with everyone.

I noticed afterwards that I was looking at things differently, not pulling apart every little wrinkle or bump. Letting go of judgement for myself also helped in letting go of judgement of others. There is a feeling of lightness inside. Alexa with her Body Talk session lifted some burdens that I had been carrying, making room for a more open heart. I have known Alexa for a few years now, doing her body talk for animals classes as well as seeing her for Body Talk sessions. There is no one I would trust more with such an important step in my life. Alexa’s love for all life, big and small, and her own experiences with pain have blessed us with a teacher full of passion, love and understanding. I look forward to doing many other experiences with her. I would definitely recommend this experience to others.

Its empowering, it makes you feel beautiful inside and out, and its a whole lot of fun!
