It was so special to get a day with my dear friend Rachel who was visiting us from Oakland, California. She is an amazing photographer as well and she was more than willing to support the Maui Goddess Project by being my goddess for the day. I wanted to take her somewhere off the beaten path so I made a connection or two and we found ourselves at the Queen’s Pools. The water was rushing a bit as we skirted along the side of what used to be a more gently flowing stream. The energy was strong but the pools and waterfalls were definitely fit for a Queen. Rachel glowed in the jungle light and her adventurous spirit was a perfect fit for the trek we did together. We are blessed to have her in our lives and her radiance shined through the photos that day.
I honor the Goddess in You Rachel….

The Maui Goddess Project brings wonderful women into my life and it also gives me a chance to honor those who have been there watching me birth this from its beginning. Winsome is one of these amazing women who embodies so much vibrant energy around everything she does. She is such an inspiration and I got the opportunity to hang out with her on the farm she works on capturing the beauty she has created there. She is a huge supporter of Korean Natural Farming techniques where she makes her own “teas” that feed the plants as well as creating her own inoculated soils. Her garden is very healthy and diverse with yummy kale and flowers sprinkled around. I checked out the Tiny House she helped to build out of all recycled materials. We said hello to her horse friend down the road and ended to session with a little BowSpring Yoga. I mean…WoW! What a gift to the universe this girl is. We are also putting imagery together for a 13 Moons Calendar so keep your eyes peeled for that. Thank you Winsome for being a part of my life and truly doing the work to help the community, the island and Mother Earth.

I see Diana at our children’s school almost everyday during drop off and one sunny morning we talked about the Maui Goddess Project. She lit up with excitement as I described getting dressed up in my “Goddess Closet” and going out into nature and capturing her essence. She already has so much to offer as she has studied Yoga, Ayurvedic Healing and Kitchen Medicine. We went on a journey together into the woods and down into a dried up river with a cave. She chanted and cleansed crystals. She played in the trees and called in Lakshmi. We adorned her in a few different clothing items and headpieces. It was pure magic and I was so inspired to continue this project. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in any of her cleanses. I am looking forward to mine in the Spring. ~I honor the Goddess in You Diana

Working with different elements truly draws us to a place away from our busy minds and lives. Emily Aiyana and I fire dance together and we went to a wooded area to bring out the power she has inside. It has been such a joy to watch her flourish in her dance and I am honored to call her a soul sister. ~ I honor the Goddess in You Emily Aiyana
