Meet Goddess Leora
From a wee little girl I noticed that there was something enchanting about women. There was a bright glimmer in their eyes, as if behind that glimmer, there lived ancient secrets of happiness. As if, when you felt their gaze combined with a smile, it could melt the toughest caveman around, or break the impenetrable shell of an ice queen. It was a mixture of alluring and warm. I had the pleasure of experiencing that in my own grandmother, Sophie, whose big love made everyone feel grateful to be in her presence. I became aware that there were all different types of women. Some who were cold as a winter storm, as if love had left their body. Yet underneath that, I could sense there was anger and sadness. Loving to observe all the women who roamed the earth, I recognized that beauty lived in both the radiance and the sadness. During these early-in-life observations, I had no idea that these discoveries would eventually lead me to my passion of serving women.
I gravitated to my grandmother's loving ways, but as I began to experience abuse, I began to protect my heart—not feeling it was safe to express this side of myself. As divine timing has its way, my mother introduced me to Girl Scouts, which was my first taste of sisterhood. Here I felt safe to open up and be seen, and for brief periods,when I was with my girls, I allowed those walls to come down.
In my early 30’s I woke up one day, noting that something felt off in my life. I had been doing everything "perfectly"— studying transformational and personal development work since the age of 25—and yet awakening each day to a feeling of not living a life of ultimate joy. As I sat with this a while, I realized how alone I felt and how I had, year after year, found myself isolating a little more.
And then one day it clicked! The thing that was nonexistent from my life was SISTERHOOD! It was time to bring that on back. It began as a simple introduction, which lead to beginning a goddess group together with seven other women. A place to receive support, celebrate our biggest dreams and desires, and feel seen. From there, it turned into two years of consistently meeting together every week. In that short time I witnessed women leave jobs and relationships that didn’t ignite that feeling of being fully ALIVE, begin families, make lots of money, and turn their direction towards a life that was designed by their own heavenly TRUTH!
Growing up in the city of Detroit a gift of fearlessness had been birthed. I often found myself in gritty situations. What I learned from each one was priceless, even the ones that almost landed me in prison. I found myself attracted to people who didn’t grow up like me, from different cultures and socio-economics. My deep interest became in learning who they were and why people wanted to separate us. What I discovered was beneath the surface and fears that people had were other human beings who wanted the same thing to be loved FIERCELY! This has helped me to bridge any awkwardness and to bring just that to the girls of GEMS that I work with and the women who have just come home from prison.
I finally experienced that for which I had been search: My spirit was able to reconnect with my body. After this return to my body and finding a place where I could show up with all my messiness and many layers, I knew it was time to help other women do the same. To take them out of their mundane loneliness, the lives of stale mediocrity which they had been putting up with, and help them embody their power, their pleasure, and illustrate a life that lights their diamond encrusted center on fire.

Too often, women are busy running from place to place, forgetting to take care of ourselves first (if at all). As we know sickness and self-medication is running rampant in our society. Self-care has become a thing we have put at the end of our TO DO list. We get disconnected from our bodies, our needs, and our intuition, forgetting what makes us happy—or that we even deserve to feel happiness at all. This has left many off us frustrated, angry, and feeling lost, not having an outlet to transform this energy so we can have peace of mind and joy at the core of our spirit.
At Goddess On The Go workshops, women connect heart to heart, move their bodies in ways that feel aligned with our feminine energy, and uncover their bombshell beauty, in a GORGEOUS space designed to heal and create lasting fulfillment. It’s a serene celebration of life, goddess style!
