The Real Ass Woman Collective
We're living in a world where far too many women are caught up in the disease of competition with one another, rather than focused on cultivating real connection.
I think that in their heart of hearts, most women truly crave having supportive friendships with one another, where instead of competing with one another, they interact with each woman they come into contact with as though they might be a potential "sister".
Women are carrying around a load of cultural baggage on their shoulders that says we need to fight, compete, and hurt one another in order to get the guy, the job, and the life we want.
That's so far from the truth.
I believe that as women, having a life that's rich with supportive female connection, surrounded by women who desire to lift us up in our aspirations, rather than tear us down, is a key factor to creating the life of our dreams.
We'll never get where we want to go as a collective unless we're doing it together.
Are you a woman who desires truly loving and supportive connections with other women in your life (aka bullshit free friendships)? Do you want to immerse yourself in a group of women where you are treated with respect, adoration, and appreciation rather than with cattiness, drama, and criticism?
Perhaps you're craving a web of sacred sisterhood, where you can show up as your whole self — uninhibited, uncensored, untamed — where all parts of you are not only accepted, but wholeheartedly celebrated.
You know, the kind of place where you can be that fierce woman that you are, without having to hold anything back.
If that’s what you are seeking, seek no further, sister.
You’ve found your pack. Your sisters await you.
Welcome to The Real Ass Woman Collective.
Whether you're a woman who struggles to find likeminded female friendships in your day to day life, desire a sisterhood sanctuary to retreat to for nourishment, or you are a woman with lots of supportive sister-like friendships in your life and just want to immerse yourself in even more woman-positive communities, this is the place for you.
The Real Ass Woman Collective is a space for long-term community building, calling on women who are intent on working in the realm of their personal healing and growth with other inspired women who want to bring more of themselves out into the world, through the cultivation of lifestyle skills, use of ritual and ceremonial work, experience modern day initiation and know themselves completely.
What’s it all about?
The Real Ass Collective is a community of women who are dedicated to unveiling their truest nature and coming home to the essence of who they are. It's a safe place for women to unleash themselves from patriarchal oppression with the support of sisterhood around them.
It’s sacred feminine meets social justice warrior — virtual red tent style gathering meets the a coven of cackling witches — a marriage of feminism meets modern day woman.
The Real Ass Woman Collective a safe online space to give and receive support amongst other incredible women (yourself included!), where you can ask questions, receive or offer advice, laugh with one another, create dialogue around taboo topics you might not have a place to otherwise talk about these things, sort through conflict, and reach into the core of conversations about anything from relationships, sex, money, health, feminine health and hygiene, self-care, fitness, and so much more.
The Real Ass Woman Collective is more than just another online group — it's a support system and inspiration machine for creating the life of your dreams and becoming all of what you desire to be.
The virtual temple is open 24/7, 365 days a year. That’s right — the doors are always open for you to enter the temple at any time.
The actual virtual "temple" is a private Facebook group which only paying members have access to.
Whether you have a fight with your partner and want some immediate sisterly support, you are preparing for an important day at work and want some good mojo sent your way, or maybe there’s just an intimate topic you want to discuss or ask questions about without feeling judged — this sacred space is available to you for support at any given moment.
Not only are the doors always open, but with room for 115 sisters, there are bound to be at least a few women available in the group at any given moment to support you.
We’re here for you. We've got you.
You can dive into experiencing the sacred feminine through sisterhood any hour of the day, any day of the week.
We are weaving holiness together in this web of women.
So, why un.leash women through sisterhood?
I grew up going to public schools as a teenager. My experience of these years were ridden with bullying, drama, and catty behavior — especially amongst the girls.
Most of my years coming into my womanhood were spent feeling empty, confused, and alone not knowing who of the women in my life I could honestly trust. Of course there were a few exceptions to this, with a handful girlfriends who I could feel honestly loved and supported me.
But there were few women I felt I could trust. Some horrifying things that happened to me in these past female friendships. Unimaginable pain, hurt, and betrayal.
My guess is you've probably experienced something similar, because just about every woman I've talked to has sisterhood wounds or some kind.
I liked hanging out with guys more than I liked hanging out with other girls most of the time, because they were drama free, filterless and it never felt like there was competition between myself and them. It was almost like there was something safer about friendships with men.
However, I knew I was meant to have meaningful relationships with women.
Coming into my adulthood, I finally began cultivating some friendships that felt like true sisterhood. Friendships that were free of the catty high-school style drama, full of depth, and rich with substance. The kind of sister-like connections where I felt held, seen, and where I could finally trust fully. Like family.
Connections where I can bare my soul, come completely undone in my grief, rise to the heights of my power and these women will hold me fiercely in all of my many ways of showing up.
Since then those few friendships of true sisterhood have multiplied into dozens upon dozens of these connections.
I have stood along side of so many women in transformational empowerment work and healing experiences that have shown me the profound depth of sisterhood connection that's available between women when the right kind of space is created for us to relate within.
Yes, I'm telling you that beautiful female friendships can exist, and not only that — sisterhood is the salve for our wounding.
My life's work in the the world is to hold sacred spaces for women to connect and cultivate true sisterhood in their lives, providing a healing environment that's full of all the necessary tools for women to learn, grow, and connect with one another in a manner that promotes healthy ways of relating between women. Read more about women's experiences in working with me here.
I’ve felt your pain in relating with women.
I’ve felt your fear around surrendering back into connection with women.
I understand that relating with women in friendships can come with lots of history, stories, and challenges.
I know the pain that can come from feeling like your “sisters” aren’t really your sisters.
And that’s exactly why I’m offering the Real Ass Woman Collective — because I hold space like a motherfucker and I'm committed to helping the women of the world to re-write the story of what it means to be in friendships with one another.
This sisterhood is free of the modern ways of relating amongst women. That means no cattiness, no drama, no betrayals, and all of the traumas which have unfortunately become the new norm in women relating with one another.
Yes, we all have our own ideas of what sisterhood looks like and being in community with one another is not always the easiest experience, but the kind of women that this temple space calls to are women who are willing to do the work and we have systems in place to support conflict resolution when necessary.
This virtual temple space is for women who are so committed to themselves and their sisters, that they are willing to look within themselves and grow through their pain points, show up fully for their sisterhood, and always be ready to expand into greater versions of themselves. This temple space is not for women who like to overtly judge others, are attracted to petty drama, and are drawn to catty behavior.
Now let's get down to it — what exactly do you get as a member of the Real Ass Woman Collective?
This is not surface level experience. This is a space for diving deeply. It's a place for exploring the inner terrain of your soul, freely expressing your spirit, and shining as bright as you possibly can. It's a place to be heard, seen, and felt.
Does that scare you a little bit, or maybe make your stomach dance with excitement? If so, that's a good thing, and you'll have all the support you need to make the above happen.
Aspiring writers, women in the tech industry, stay at home mama's, inspired herbalists, growing entrepreneurs, life-long dancers, artists of any kind, life coaches, nature lovers, health enthusiasts — you name it, whatever you do, whomever you are, wherever you hail from, there is a space for you in the sisterhood.
The Real Ass Woman Collective is a virtual temple of sisterhood for any woman who feels the stir of her wild nature wanting to be expressed. It's for women who are ready to step into powerful, strong, and supportive relationships with women.
If you're a woman who has been dreaming of being a part of a sisterhood community like this, where you can lean back and even fall down, trusting that you will be fully caught by your sisters — you've reached your destination. This is home.
"We were women seeking a spiritual home, a place where we would be respected and welcomed, where our souls would be healed and empowered, and where our experiences would be honored as a source of spiritual wisdom." —Phyllis Curott
All the perks of WFU:
- Access to a Private Virtual Sisterhood of Intentionally Gathered & Diverse Women: This as the biggest gift that the sisterhood offers. Having the space to connect with other women who are gathered with similar intentions to connect and grow alongside you is absolutely invaluable. The tribe of women in this sisterhood are so much of what makes this place so incredibly special.
- Monthly Themes: Each month, I choose a new general theme that we as a group focus on as an undercurrent of conversation and exploration. The new theme is announced on the 1st of each month, and serves as a way to pool our collective wisdom as a group of incredible women to learn from one another and deepen our understanding of certain aspects of life. These themes tend to be diverse and could be anything from social justice, creativity, sexuality, vulnerability, self-care and so much more. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the year's schedule of monthly themes!
- Weekend Journaling Prompts: On Friday of each week, I supply a few writing prompts that relate to a facet of our monthly theme as an optional journaling ritual / exercise for women to do over the weekend. This is an opportunity to take a specific aspect of our monthly theme more deeply and personally into your own lived experiences.
- Weekly Live "Circle Time" Calls with the Sisterhood: Another one of the more exciting parts of RAW. Once per week, we gather for a live video call together to have a sisterhood discussion hour. Typically, the conversation and topic of focus on the call comes through organically, while other times we might discuss the highlights of the week, personal challenges or celebrations, and more. You can come prepared with your questions for me, personal thoughts, musings, ideas, or whatever you feel inspired to share with the sisterhood. Recordings of all live calls are posted within 24 hours of the session.
- Monthly Sisterhood Panel Calls: The RAW Collective is an innately talented and wise bunch of women. Yes, that means you too. Once per month, we host a live sisterhood panel call where come together to discuss our monthly theme in more depth. It's usually scheduled toward the end of the month, to serve as an opportunity to deepen on the subject matter, wrap up our final thoughts, and process what our experience of delving into that month's topic was like. It's a beautiful chance to be heard, share ideas, and learn from one another.
- Monthly Live Mentoring Session with a Guest Educator: Each month we will bring in a special guest educator from the realm of women's empowerment to offer a one-hour, live audio presentation, followed by a 30 minute Q/A. Think specific topics like sexuality, nature exploration, women's health, cooking, healing modalities, women's leadership, money, freedom, relationships, spirituality, and more. This is such a highlight to receive free access to these wise individuals. Recordings of all live calls are posted within 24 hours of the session.
- Bi-Annual Retreats: Ability to register for and participate in the private Real Ass Woman bi-annual retreats that happen on the East and West coast of the United States each year -- these retreats are only open to members of the sisterhood, where we share in ritual, ceremony, workshops, and immersion into nature.
- Access to a Private Buyers Club: Receive generous ongoing discounts with companies who offer incredible products to support your wild feminine lifestyle. Because who doesn't love rad products and savings.
- Private Conflict Resolution Council: With quarterly rotating conflict resolution council sourced from within the sisterhood itself on a volunteer basis, the group has a wealth of inherent support for navigating conflict when it arises (very infrequently, might I add!) This rotating council is available on a personal support basis, as well as within a private subgroup that women can enter into and out of to navigate conflict as it arises.
- New Sister Welcoming Council: Every woman who joins the space is partnered with a woman from our new sister welcoming council, to support new members in getting initiated into the sisterhood as well as integrating into the virtual temple. This looks like a month of one-on-one support, an official blessing in joining the sisterhood, assistance in navigating all the nooks and crannies of the Real Ass Woman Collective, and whatever else comes up for need in supporting for the first 30 days of a new sister's membership.
- Monthly Contests & Giveaways Exclusively in the Temple: You heard it, free stuff! Twice per month, we offer incredible giveaways of artisan, hand-crafted products or special offerings like jewelry, tee shirts, books, herbal supplies, perfumes, and awesome things like of that nature.
- Intimate Personal Support From Your Fellow RAW Sisters & Team: This is priceless — having an outlet for direct and personal one-on-one support from fellow wild women. Whether it is your sisters, myself, or someone from the staff of RAW, you will always have access to someone when you are in need or just want to connect.
- True Sisterhood Connection: How can you put a price on quality relationships? It can be challenging to find an ideal group of women to hang with in this day and age, especially with all of the cultural baggage we have in female connections. There's no defining the value of connecting with women in a sacred space, where trust, love and support can be shared so freely.
- 24 Hour Support: Around the clock, the Virtual Temple is open. At any given time, it's likely that dozens of Un.leashed sisters will be present in the group to be there for you when you have a question, need some support, desire celebration, or just someone to listen!

"Whether a woman knows it or not, she is a vessel of great magnitude born capable of reshaping humanities destiny, if she only knew the true depths of her innate gifts. Be prepared now to see the fierce face of the feminine rock as her inner geographies of volcanic strength erupt from a love she has held in her belly for life all of her days. This is not a gasp of her last breath. It is her birthing cry into her wise leadership on our planet." —ALisa Starkweather
