Alyssa will be offering Awaken Your Wild Feminine: Photoshoots around the Wellness Spa or any other area within the gathering that calls to you

Alyssa Keys hase been a professional photographer since 2013.

She grew up in Portland, Oregon where I filled my life with creativity, now resides in Grass Valley, California, and will travel anywhere for love. Photography is more than just an art form for her, it is a spirit of self-discovery and connection that fuels her life in powerful ways. Her passion in life is photographing people in love, nature hikes with expansive views, dips in the Yuba River, paddle-boarding majestic lakes and discovering vintage fashion. She lives a life of magic and adventure, traveling the west coast and beyond, chasing waterfalls and stunning landscapes.

Alyssa often gets asked how she got into photography. Growing up she was creative in many ways and loved to capture photos with her family’s 35mm camera. She loved the surprise of not knowing what you were going to get. When the photos were developed, she was always excited to see how they turned out. Through these experiences, she naturally became a photographer. Alyssa then went on to study photography in college and the essence of natural lighting. Since then, she have always had a camera in her hand, capturing people in their true form.

She finds magic in every movement and never fail to be one of the most excited people in the room. She has a strong connection to music. It fills her life and she always has the right playlist for her photo sessions. Alyssa specializes in creating a relaxed yet dynamic environment to help with any nervous feelings that may arise from the experience of being in front of a camera. Though this connected style of shooting, she’s able to capture the essence of who her clients are while maintaining the authenticity of the moment.

Alyssa would absolutely love to be your photographer!

The healing arts, have enriched my life so deeply with the beauty of connection towards my own story, my pain, my pleasures, my sensations and my own healing. Learning how to weave through Self, as I integrate these downloads into my everyday life~ sharing and extending the transparency with others and permeating nothing but gratitude as I continue to humbly receive each new experience. It is a true honor to share bits of my journey here with you. In 2018, I received my education on the beautiful island of Kauai at The Pacific Center of Awareness and Bodywork. This program integrates massage education through a handful of modalities such as cranial sacral, Swedish, Thai, deep connective tissue therapy, and the 10- series; personal growth/healing, emphasizing mindfulness, trauma-informed somatic psychology, and neuroscience. Through this experience I walked away with deeper knowledge of my own self and this beautiful magical work that we do, together. That truly the healing comes from within YOU. Your own trust, your own presence, receptivity and attention towards your experience. I apply my own techniques, my whole heart, absolute presence, and undivided listening to our space as you travel through your own, deepening, watching and releasing of your internal and external experiences, and together we do this work. Bodywork has been an absolute gift in my life to receive and give, just one of the many conduits of healing offered in this life but for me personally, one I am so passionate about, so in love with, and one I find the most powerful. I’m humbly honored at every connection I get to make being a body worker, extremely grateful for the opportunity to share and learn more each session as I dive into the interconnected work this art offers for self and other. I deeply appreciate your time in receiving this, warmest mahalo to all.

Onaia is joining us from the mountainous high desert, just outside of Sedona, Arizona, where she lives on some land in a tiny, rural town with her partner and three children. Her Gemini Moon has made for an interesting resume, from tire technician to tattoo artist, qigong instructor to cobbler, and has kept her continuously seeking new knowledge, skills, experiences and adventures. These days she dedicates most of her time to being the most present, loving and supportive mother she can be, tending to her “Space of Love” (land), practicing BEing still and tuning into the natural world, working with our mushroom & herbal allies @awildianherbs, making minimalist shoes with her Beloved @bison.boutique, and maintaining a personal practice of meditation, Qigong and Yoga to cultivate deeper peace, love, healing, awareness and growth.
She is beyond excited to be gathering with all of you BeautyFULL Wombyn. ❤️

Portia Richardson

Portia Richardson.jpg

I am a holistic and interdisciplinary healer, teacher, guide, ritualist, and channel. My medicine path is one of remembering our wholeness. I work at the intersections of embodiment, expanded consciousness, creative expression, sacred activism, ancestral connection, and cultural healing.
My blood lineage people are from the lands of Scandinavia, the British Isles, and Western Europe. They migrated to Turtle Island in the mid 1700’s – and settled/colonized the traditional lands of the Shawnee and Cherokee peoples throughout the Appalachian region (now Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Georgia). Currently, I live and love in South Minneapolis, Minnesota – better known as the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe (Chippewa, Ojibwe) and Dakota (Sioux) peoples.
I am raced white and walk with insider privilege within the current culture – and am committed to the ongoing process of dismantling oppressive power structures internally and externally.
I am a queer person (pan-ecosexual/non-monogamous/non-binary/she-they/femme), a partner and mother, an independent musician, an animist, an eclectic witch, and a bridge for the Otherworld.
I work 1-on-1 with folx and hold group events through my private practice Tall Reeds Healing Arts, as well as teach graduate courses through the Center of Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota.
Simply put, my mission is to heal collective trauma and dis-ease by tending to how it is showing up for each of us individually. My practice flows from the guiding principle of as without so within, as within so without. You can connect more with me at www.tallreedshealingarts.com.
