Our Programs

Self-Defense for Women

The Women Empowered (WE) Program is based on the principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (GJJ).  The Women Empowered Program teaches 20 techniques to neutralize the most common threats to women in an assault.  GJJ does not rely on strength or power.  It relies on leverage, technique and timing.  The Women Empowered Program is taught to women of all ages and athletic abilities (including those who do not exercise), and from all walks of life.  Self-defense is not limited to a set number of techniques; it’s a state of mind, and it begins with the belief that you are worth defending. 

We offer Women Empowered Self-Defense Seminars, Zoom classes, private instruction!

Empowered Heart Circles

Empowered Heart Circles are community gatherings for self-love and self-care to empower our hearts, minds, bodies, and unleash the creator within.

When we spend time nurturing ourselves, we can be more present with others and be in the right mindset and positive energetic space to give to others, while establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries for ourselves.


Tapping and the Art of Self-Healing


Tapping has been used for stress relief and healing from various ailments and dis-eases.  By tapping on points directly or indirectly on the body’s energy meridians, one can clear energy blockages and restore wellness.

Tong Ren is a form of tapping.  By tapping on points on an anatomical figurine (representing the person) with a magnetic hammer, the part of the body is drawn back into entrainment with healthy bioelectrical signals and the vast healing energy of our global collective unconscious.  It is also tapping into Divine Source to help awaken the doctor within.  We all have the ability to heal ourselves. Everything vibrates.  When there is an illness, the body needs a little help to tune back in to the frequency of wellness. Acupuncturists have found Tong Ren to be more powerful than acupuncture. The great thing is that anyone can do it for themselves.

Empowered Heart Circles are community events for self-care, self-compassion, and self-love. You are invited to join us for an online Empowered Heart Circle. Activities will include Waterfall Shower meditation, Breathing through the Heart meditation, Dear Universe meditations to let go fear-based emotions and embrace love-based emotions, Chi Kung exercises to transform negative emotions into positive emotions, and Divine Heart Journaling questions.
