You’ve come to the right place.

The fire of your deepest desires is aligning to your heart’s knowing and your soul’s calling.

You long for your body, mind, and spirit to be fully TURNED ON and TUNED IN to your highest potential.

You’re NOT doing the world a service by hiding your GIFTS or shrinking your POWER.

Pachamama needs your soulful and authentic LEADERSHIP.

Leadership that flows from the inside out.

Leadership that is about the simple recognition that you have something meaningful to contribute to the whole.

Leadership that doesn’t require anything more than YOU in your fullest expression.

You’ve had enough of holding back your voice, doubting your ideas, hiding your visibility, and limiting your influence.

Dimming your full shine.

Delaying your creative projects.

Discarding your intuition.

Escucha el llamado.

There’s a call for you to break free from any stories that have kept you small, quiet, or invisible.

The old narrative that you’re not enough or that there’s something wrong with you or that you are unworthy.

Mentiras. Don’t believe it. You are already whole and purposeful, and needed in the world!

Let’s burn down the internalized personal and collective traumas that slow you down or keep you armored and stuck by grounding in your Divina Self.

Time to ignite your true firepower, hermana.

And you don’t have to do it alone. You get to feel supported, uplifted, and celebrated in your light!

ELLA is here for you on this journey.

Ya es hora

WHAT is
Embodied Latinx
Leadership Academy?

Latinx womxn sitting on the floor, some on cushions, others directly on the floor.

Embodied Latinx Leadership Academy (ELLA) is a mind-body-spirit, trauma-inclusive, and pleasure-centric feminine empowerment solution specifically designed for Black, brown, indigenous, and other womxn of color.

Our online community, (R)evolutionary Rompereglas, is a recognition of our need to gather, heal, and celebrate within a collective as a core component of the intense spiritual growth that is needed right now.

We use this space to deepen our connection to one another by practicing vulnerability and embodiment of the sacred feminine, exchanging resources, and collaborating on shared desires.

Sometimes your fears and blocks are preventing you from moving forward on creating your service-based business or from being an effective, balanced leader in the work you already do. When you need to take a machete and clear a path in a short period of time, intensive and focused one-on-one coaching might be the solution you need.

AmpliFIRE is a 6-month embodied transformational coaching program designed to embolden BBIWoC healers and helpers to get VISIBLE and SHINE their brightest light in their businesses.

By decolonizing mind, body, and spirit and breaking through fear and creative blocks, you can finally create a business and a life that is not only pleasure and heart-centered, but also unapologetically YOURS.

Schedule your free exploratory call to see if working together feels like the right fit for you.

“What I liked best about the live event was the sisterhood. It was impactful for me to know I am and that we are all perfectly imperfect! That felt amazing. What was unique about ELLA was the body-centered work that helped me find the courage to let go.”

“El ser vista y acompañada por mis hermanas me mostró que tenemos una capacidad de sanar y trasformar en grande cuando lo hacemos juntas. Ella me mostró la sensibilidad no es debilidad es un poder que nos guía a un nuevo liderazgo desde el corazón.”

“Amazing! I got to bring out my feminine power and feel proud of it. I learned that I am on the right path, that women I meet can support each other, and that I can face my fear of leadership and bring more of myself.”

ELLA Online Community Membership

ENROLLMENT REOPENS SEPTEMBER 2020

 

screen and partial keyboard of computer laptop, on the screen are women dancing, hummingbird logo, words: "Welcome to (R)evolutionary Rompereglas"

(R)evolutionary Rompereglas is a queer-friendly, online Latinx co-created affinity space where you can connect with other empaths, helpers, healers, artists, and organizers who want to create a more balanced world from the inside out.

It is here that we gather to explore and speak vulnerable truths, re-member our sacred sexuality, break restrictions to our truest desires, alchemize limiting stories, heal traumatic wounds, celebrate and redefine our cultures, practice radical self-love, and give and receive support with our Latinx “seesters.”

The (R)evolutionary Rompereglas community was created from the need to have a noise and news-free, one-stop virtual shop for  vulnerable conversations, deeper inner work, and connections between Latinx womxn that are necessary for our collective healing

Think about it as a whole Facebook platform dedicated exclusively to the mind-body-spirit radiance of Latinxs! Amidst physical distancing and global crisis it became imperative to create interconnected webs of support that transcended geography and the superficial mask of social media.

In the ELLA online membership community, you’ll find:

  • weekly group embodiment practices with journal prompts
  • opportunities to network and connect based on shared interests
  • honest conversations
  • other events and programs all designed to dismantle the damaging subconscious programming  and upload a full-body feminine navigation system that removes internal barriers to living a life of possibility, inherent power, and unapologetic YES.

WHY center
Latinx Womxn?

Let’s be honest here. Latinx womxn often get overlooked in the conversations about race and gender that are steeped in Black and White binaries. Encima de eso, the fields of feminine self-actualization, personal growth, spirituality, and trauma healing are designed for and marketed to white womxn. 

What I know is that we experience a distinct flavor of oppression made up of machismo and colonialism from our own culture that is then compounded by our unique experiences as Latinx womxn navigating the systems of race, class, and gender in this country.

It’s time to live and create by our own rules, Rompereglas.

It’s about coming together to process and heal our internalized experiences of what we face(d) as Latinx womxn and to use our healing to create a purpose-driven future that values cooperation, interconnectedness, mutuality, nurturance, and thriving. 

It’s also about getting radically honest with ourselves and each other about how patriarchy and colonialism hurts us individually, collectively, and in and our relationships to one another as womxn.

Centering Latinx is not about exclusion. It’s about creating affinity healing spaces to explore and challenge self-limiting stories arising from our cultural inheritance of colonization, machismo, and systemic racism.

ELLA is about standing strong in our value, greatness, purpose, cultural richness, passion, and our right to take up space and thrive, so we can lift our voices and create a more just and beautiful world from a place of authenticity, truth, and conscious personal leadership. 

What ELLA participants have shared:

“It felt so intimate–the authenticity, the gentleness, our shared stories. Having the event focused on OUR culture and in OUR languages spoke to me and validated a part of myself that had been shut down and colonized.” ~Julissa Perez

“It is important to do healing work in a culture-specific container because there is a domino effect of spreading the good within our community.” ~Brenda Liz Cotto

I believe we can’t be fully empowered until we address at the level of the nervous system the trauma of having been programmed into the self-betrayal that is silence, sacrifice, and goodness.

WHO is
Embodied Latinx
Leadership Academy for?

ELLA and the (R)evolutionary Rompereglas community is for passionate and spiritual Latinx womxn who want to live from their TRUEST and most AUTHENTIC selves, en otras palabras, immersed in their spiritual lives, aligned to their divine PURPOSE, and anchored in their POWER as diosas without having to sacrifice connection with their culture or their Latinx hermanas.

The women who are attracted to ELLA are powerful, deeply empathic, and committed to bringing change to the world through the expression of their unique gifts.

Diosa mia, Rompereglas. You’ve come a long way in your healing journey, and it hasn’t been without sacrifice. You already do extraordinary work in the world but still you feel like there’s MORE, like something is missing from somewhere in your life, and yet you can’t quite put your finger on it. You may feel exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious and depressed, or struggle with self-doubt, perfectionism, and thinking you are wrong in some way. Or, you may have that ONE area in life (relationship, health, career, finances) that isn’t quite where you want it to be. You may at times feel alone, disconnected, anxious or lost.

I created ELLA to provide safe spaces for Latinx womxn like you to break free from your limiting internal narratives and traumas by doing the deeper internal work of feminine embodiment so that you can live a life that is aligned with your truest and most authentic expression and spiritual purpose, thereby making you an extraordinary agent of collective change.

Let me guess, Rompereglas. You do extraordinary work in the world but still you feel like something is missing from somewhere in your life, and yet you can’t quite put your finger on it. You’re doing all the things you can to heal and grow and yet you may feel exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious and depressed, or struggle with self-doubt, perfectionism, and thinking you are wrong in some way. Or, you may have that one area in life (relationship, health, career, finances) that isn’t quite where you want it to be. You may at times feel alone, disconnected, anxious or lost.

ABOUT Isha

Isha laying upside down, white gown, dark background

Quien se cree ella? Who do I think I am to offer this work? After all, I’m 100% culturally blended, enjoy U.S. citizenship, and speak English without an accent. Believe me, I’ve had that same thought through the whole process of conceiving ELLA and manifesting it into reality.

I just didn’t give that thought any room to take me down. 

I’ll tell you what I am. I am sick of seeing womxn oppress themselves with harsh criticism of their goddess bodies. I’m tired of womxn doubting their excellent and valuable ideas into obscurity. I’m so done with womxn sacrificing themselves for others at the expense of their own dreams and desires. It hurts my heart to know that womxn hold back so much of their fucking awesome life force energy out of fear of being humiliated.

Yup, you guessed it. That was me. I was that womxn. Ella. And I would’ve never admitted that I was unhappy.

In 2011, after I had my two beautiful girls, I started to wake up to the ways I had totally constructed my life from a place of limitation, scarcity, and insecurity. 

It showed up everywhere in big and small ways: in my work, my finances, my marriage, my parenting, my friendships, my relationship with my body, and especially my understanding of my role in the world.

It was a rude awakening.

At that time I became so ill my body rejected anything and everything I put in it.

As I understand it, my spirit was literally rejecting the path of smallness and fear I had taken.

I had a total body breakdown.

The return to my Self involved a mind-body-spirit overhaul that addressed deeper roots in personal and generational trauma that needed to be excavated and healed in community.

I was essentially liberating myself from the inside out, and in the healing process I cleared a path for my ancestors to speak to me and through me.

Everything changed. EVERYTHING.

In the spiritual awakening of recognizing myself as a divine goddess ripe with purpose and with unlimited capacity for pleasure, I also learned to:

  • Give and receive love and support without depleting myself;
  • Trust the parts of me that said YES to the wholeness and uncertainty of life;
  • Uncover my sacred sexuality and use it as my limitless power source;
  • Welcome and receive prosperity;
  • Find my unique voice and contribution to the greater whole; and
  • Honor the sacrifices of my ancestors!

I couldn’t have done it without community. Without a group of powerful hermanas reflecting my truth back at me, I couldn’t have broken through fear of expansion, scarcity blocks, and struggles with owning my power.

Over the past 10 years I’ve made a commitment to eradicate every lie that I’ve been told about myself. My commitment is to not believing anything that suggests I’m not beautiful, worthy, or divine.

I want you to have that too, Rompereglas.

ELLA is built on the belief that each and every one of us has a contribution to make and that each one of us is here came here at this time in history for a specific purpose.

I want to uncover and ignite that purpose with you. My desire is to accompany and guide you through a feminine embodiment and healing process within a collective of (r)evolutionary Latinx hermanas founded on collaboration, connection, and celebration.

Let’s RISE, together.

Living in your FULLEST EXPRESSION
is a (r)evolutionary
act.
