“Depression and anxiety are the soul’s inability to wield its power”
Shades of Intimacy
Vulnerability births intimacy. Intimacy is not limited to sexuality, but sharing a meal, a cry or an adventure as well. There is a beauty within the contrast of intimacy. The celebration of another, and the holding of another in their light when they are drowning in their own darkness. Conscious relationships both Monogamous and Ethically Non-Monogamous are hard work. Although, both dynamics pose their individual challenges, both serve as fertile grounds for transformation both as an individual and a unit.

“You don’t have to be perfect to create healthy love. You don’t have to have healed everything or be some kind of finished product to be in a dynamic that is loving and expansive. All you need is to be willing to explore yourself and your partner, to continue to wake up and prioritize awareness, and to commit over and over again to your inner healing work.”
Shades of Shadow
The “Shadow” refers to any part of ourselves we are unaware of or have yet to integrate into our being. The shadow lives in the subconscious unconscious and therefore is not acting from a place of awareness and integrity, unless it is fully embraced and acknowledged. It consists of the parts of ourselves we disown and attach feelings of shame to. To let it go or allow it to live in the light, we must first acknowledge its existence.

Shades of Social Justice
Social Justice Education
We all bleed red. We are all one living breathing organism with each counterpart affecting the whole. Why be part of the problem if you could instead, be part of the solution?

A note on social justice...
I believe what the world needs right now, what the call to action is amidst the biggest civil rights movement the world has ever known, is a deep heart opening to receive the collective pain of those who do not reflect us… racism, sexism, classism; they are all in the same family. This may mean opening your heart to the baggage both women and BIPOC carry not only each and everyday day, but on ancestral level as well.
I believe a part of social justice work, is not only the heart opening, but the owning of your own role in the perpetuation of ism’s.. racism.. sexism.. Etc. We all have a shadow to own in it. To create more love, more healing.. saying I thank you, I love you, please forgive me, I am so sorry, is a beautiful place to start.
I respect if you choose to take a more intellectual approach, but at the end of the day, I invite you to ask yourself.. “how do I want to show up in the world today?”… “do I want to do harm or do I want to heal?” Doing our inner work to heal and grow is the greatest contribution to the movement, to the people. Let’s get it started.
Shades of Consent & Sacred Sexuality
Sexuality & Consent Education & Training
Sexuality is everywhere, and yet there is such shame attached to being and expressing sexualy. Sexuality is fluid. When we label ourselves and others, we take away the power to expand into our natural formation. Removing the shame and stigma is an act of primal liberation. A necessary act to being fully self expressed, as a whole rather than fragmented person. No matter your curiosity, no matter your pain, no matter your desire; sexuality when harnessed with sovereignty and awareness can be the greatest alchemy of life.
Consent is a derivative of sexuality. Without consent we do not have a safe container to fully “play” and explore our edges, desires, and boundaries to become sexually whole. Many of us are just becoming familiar with this word (consent). Many of us were taught our consent doesn’t matter through one experience or another, but just as a child on the playground seeks to play, we as adults also desire to play. Children feel safe to explore when they know where the line, where the barrier, where the fence is. We too experience that same level of security when consent and boundaries are present and made clear.

“Becoming fully sexually self-expressed and having a safe container to do so unbinds us from the prison society has extended upon us to keep us small and confined. If shame is society’s shackles that bind us to conformity, then sacred sexuality is the flame which transmutes us from the prison of our mind.”
Shades of Men
men’s group facilitation & 101 work
In 6 years I’ve lost 4 men to drug and mental illness related deaths. One first love, two family members and one dear friend. It’s not the drugs nor the illness that took them, but rather the isolation of being a prisoner of your mind, society and conditioning as a man. Men have few safe spaces to connect vulnerably with other men in today’s world.
Women are given ample space to be emotional, but are shamed and called weak and irrational for doing so. Men witness how women are received for being outwardly emotional beings and therefore do not feel safe expressing. Both men and women perpetuate Toxic Masculinity and Femininity. So, how can we expect men to feel safe being vulnerable with gender toxicity at large?
We can’t. We need to create those safe spaces for men to connect, express and heal shame free. We have to cultivate safety and a sense of belonging for all walks of life to bring greater healing to the collective.

“We need to reframe the expression ‘grow some balls.’ Balls are literally the most fragile and soft part of a man. To heal men, we need to first acknowledge their sensitivity. Once the vulnerable man is given refuge to be seen, felt and heard the healthy masculine and feminine can commune as ONE.”
Shades of Tantra
Tantric Energy Work
Our ability to generate and manifest is harnessed in our ability to create LIFE. So much of our potential lies within our reproductive region; so much of our trauma also lies within this space. It makes sense that our deepest pain lives within our greatest responsibility, where we cultivate and perpetuate the creation of LIFE. If we want to call in what’s in our highest good, we must first make space for it.
The definition of trauma is trapped energy in your body. Tantra is all about moving that energy to create space for what we want to call in to serve our highest selves. Just as the knots in your back carry tension, our sexual organs also store that tension, which negatively impacts our biometric field and state of being. When the energy isn’t moved it compiles and pollutes our inner magic. Not only is that energy compressing in real time from day-to-day happenings, but from ancestral and generational trauma as well. This is why it is SO important to move that energy and make space for the parts that have yet to be birthed from you.

Shades of Plant Medicine
GUided Plant Medicine Journeys
The Amazon Rainforest is a pharmacy of foliage that has been protected by indignenous people for thousands of years. But what are they protecting and why?
They are protecting the sacred and ancient medicine which breathes life and healing into our very being. Not only do we need plants to breathe and nourish our bodies, but to heal as well. The hominoids also understood this through thousands of years of consuming mushrooms for medicinal purposes. We have evolved with plants and they have evolved for US. Science has proven plant medicine to heal PTSD, Anxiety, and Depression; rather than band-aid what ails us most, as Modern Medicine and Big Pharma has intended to do. Capitalism has no place within the world of healing, while plants are the medicine to begin the healing.
Trauma is trapped energy in our body. Therefore, we must move this energy using sacred and ancient modalities. Modalities, which have been proven to heal mankind for thousands of years; modalities rooted in the gifts from our Mother Earth. To be found, we must first allow ourselves to get lost. Afterall, without the contrast of darkness, light could not be fully recognized. Plant medicine allows us to shed walls and dissolve layers unknown within us to reveal our true essence.

“Our bodies and each system within should be treated as a whole, not as a collection of its counterparts. Plant Medicine is a catalyst for the mind, body and spirit to fully awaken. It seeks for the buried causes of suffering, rather than simply covering it up with pharmaceuticals..it makes way for us to truly shed and transform.”
Shades of HUMAN
Conscious workshop facilitatioN
Did you know that humans are more afraid of other humans than of death itself? Through our lived experiences of pain, fear and rejection, we wear the mask we feel best suits us to be fully received by others. Meanwhile, underneath it all we all have a deep desire to ‘belong’ to something bigger and deeper than ourselves.
In 2017, “belonging” (or community creation) was revised from a secondary need to a fundamental one in Agrawal’s Hierarchy of Needs. So, how does one gain a sense of belonging? The answer is clear; through depth of intimacy and authentic connection in emotion, body, mind and spirit.
I invite you to explore belonging by making deeper connections through the cultivation of community. In my workshops, you will journey through a series of mini exercises and rituals that use different shamanic techniques to help quiet the mind and feel the body, recognize another’s energy, let your guard down with safety, and show up as your most authentic, unapologetic self. Take these rituals and techniques from my workshops with you, and begin making more in-depth, heartfelt connections!
- Conscious Workshops, Circling, Movement and Art Group Facilitation to Cultivate a Deeper Sense of Belonging Within Yourself and Others

“Belonging is the opposite of loneliness. It's a feeling of home, of ‘I can exhale here and be fully myself with no judgment or insecurity.’ Belonging is about shared values and responsibility, and the desire to participate in making yourself and your community better through expressing, growing and healing together.”
I was drawn in by Gabriella’s radiant energy, she is a very attentive person and listened to my needs patiently without judgement, which allowed me to open up and become more vulnerable.
I have learnt a lot about myself at my pace from suggestions Gabriella recommended to me 6months ago which at the time I didn’t want to listen to or accept, I am just starting to apply this in my life now because I am reaping the rewards and i see the benefits of her coaching, I wasn’t ready to take that step then, but I am now and I am a better person for it.
If you want to make that change and need some support which I believe we all do at some point in our life but are afraid to ask for it, take the leap with Gabriella and you won’t regret it, I didn’t and I am grateful for her love, truth and expression.
Gabi has natural insight and understanding of human behaviour and expression. Intuitively she can see how to guide people to deeper understanding of themselves. This kind of insight leads to people feeling fulfilled and in joy.
Fundamentally a creative, which Gabi is, needs to be expressed and be inspired. The more Gabi explores herself, her gifts and her truth, she is starting to see a clear path emerge before her. A path that she would like to share with the world.
I was not experienced with the treatment she offered me at all, I had never done anything like this. Her guidance felt confident and I felt securely held from the very first minute though, soon my insecurities faded and I was able to give in. She took time so I could arrive in the situation, and made it very easy for me to relax. The bodywork we did was intense – with her guardiance I felt safe enough to go close to my boundaries/borders and beyond.
I would call it a chapter-changer when I now look back at it. The impulse I needed to turn the page and release this emotional cramp I was carrying for so long. It is no woodo magic, and you don‘t heal an injury like this overnight. But it was the start of something, or the end... or both. Thank you, Gabrielle.
Pointing us to the deeper truth rooted in individual expression, creativity and love. She made a sacred space for divine expression and sister hood.
Gabrielle is a very intuitive, supportive guide. She helped me get in touch with some deep trauma that I had all but given up on healing. She is fearless, easy to trust, and immensely understanding. With her nearby, I found myself undoing knots that had plagued me for decades. The next day, I found myself easily compassionate for myself and others.
I would recommend Gabrielle to anyone who wants to heal or relax deeply. If you find her in your life, you've been blessed with an opportunity to grow, heal and transform. Don't pass it up!
I truly believe that our work together attracted my new job, leaving the stagnant job I had been at for 7 years and I feel so much more alive and myself than ever. I highly recommend working with Gabs for any personal & professional soul searching you're in need of!
