Year of Liberation is a 12-month private coaching experience designed to help you gain the confidence and tools you need to do life differently.
OVER A PERIOD OF 12-MONTHS I’LL SUPPORT YOU IN:
▶︎ Crafting a goal that aligns with who you are and where you want to be
▶︎ Living cyclically and in connection to your innate feminine power
▶︎ Understanding the deep wisdom behind your emotions
▶︎ Healing the wounded masculine within ourselves and recognizing it in others around us.
▶︎ Releasing the “shoulds”, guilt, shame, exhaustion, stress, obligation overwhelm and lack of balance that so many of us face.
▶︎ Creating a dedicated spirit-based liberation practice based on the ancient and powerful technology of kundalini yoga; and
▶︎ Becoming a magnet for all the people, resources, experiences and opportunities you need to attract in order to manifest your purpose-driven vision.
WHY THIS IS DIFFERENT
There are plenty of coaches and coaching programs out there that teach you how to get free. But it’s rare to find one that takes the time to really unpack what's getting in your way of doing it.
I’m not talking about exploring your childhood wounds, or pre-existing traumas—that’s for therapy. I’m talking about exploring how systems of oppression (e.g., capitalism, patriarchy, white supremacy) insert themselves into our lives and impact the way we live, love, create, goal-set, produce, and manifest as women.
True liberation starts from within—when we can cultivate a spirit practice deep enough to witness, understand, and exorcise our attachments to these insidious, oppression-rooted wounds. Year of Liberation is an opportunity for you to do just that—to explore, in a one-on-one setting, what’s possible when we subvert these traditional power structures in our own lives and relationships.
RESULTS YOU CAN EXPECT
(1) 3 HOUR INITIATION SESSION
Your first session is called the “initiation session”. Consider it a personal workshop where I give you all the basic information and knowledge you need to get the most out of our year together. In this session:
▶︎ I’ll guide you to clarify your goals and intentions for the year ahead.
▶︎ You’ll learn how to use earth magic, seasonal energy, and the lunar cycles to manage your energy and support the manifestation of your desires
▶︎ You’ll receive an introduction to the practice of kundalini yoga so you know exactly how the tools will support you on your journey
▶︎ I’ll teach you the ancient kundalini yoga technology of the eleven moon centers—a way to understand, trust, and work with your unique cycle of mental and emotional fluctuations as a woman, completely independent of the universal moon cycle everyone always talks about.
(2) MONTHLY LIBERATION SESSIONS
Once a month, we’ll gather online on Zoom (a video conferencing software) for a 75-minute coaching session to check in on the progress and evolution of your vision. Here’s a sneak peek at what our time together may look like:
After we have a chance to greet each other and settle in, I'll invite you to close your eyes and lead you through a short meditation that will leave you feeling present, centred, calm and focused. At the end of the meditation I'll share a short prayer to strengthen the power of the sacred container we're creating together.
Next, I'll invite you to talk about whatever it is you feel inspired to share without interruption. Once in a while I may ask questions to clarify but, really, this is your time to get it all off your chest and my time to listen.
Once we've come to a natural pause, I'll check in and ask you some specifics around what kind of support (i.e., physical, emotional, energetic, strategic) you'd like to receive today. Then, guided by spirit and in alignment with your specific needs, I'll offer you my support.
At this point of the session, I'll ask you to reflect back to me and confirm what resonates and what doesn't. I'll remind you to trust your own intuition, your own power of discernment, and your own needs and lived experiences. We'll take special note of any breakthroughs, tender moments, prominent feelings, or revelations that came up during our time together.
Then we'll explore which action steps, if any, you'd like to commit to exploring and doing on your own until the next time we connect.
We'll end the session with sweet words of gratitude and a simple prayer to clear and close out the space.
(3) KUNDALINI YOGA PRESCRIPTIONS
At the start of each season, I’ll prescribe you a 90 day kundalini yoga and/or meditation practice to support the manifestation of your vision. These prescriptions are designed to:
▶︎ Increase vitality, so you can have the energy and motivation you need to follow through on the actionable steps you need to take to turn your dreams into reality.
▶︎ Build resilience and improve nervous system health so daily stressors no longer overwhelm you and take you out.
▶︎ Unearth the ancient wounds, fears and insecurities that have kept you and your ancestors stuck in patterns of self-sabotage, scarcity, and shame for generations.
The purpose, length, and level of difficulty of each prescription will be unique to your needs and will be determined in collaboration between you and me.
You can expect to receive a total of 4 prescriptions throughout the year—one per season.
YOU’LL ALSO RECEIVE:
▶︎ A copy of my debut book, The Aquarian Woman: A 40-Day Guide to Unlearning Fear, Staying Human and Experiencing Collective Liberation in the Aquarian Age
▶︎ Lifetime membership to The Aquarian Woman Freedom School, a private social network and online sanctuary for soulful, progressive, purpose-driven women carving unconventional paths to liberation at the intersection of spirituality and social justice.
This program starts January 2019 and I am only accepting 4 women. Enrolment will close December 31, 2018 or as soon as all the spots have been filled up—whichever comes first.
❝My life has completely transformed❞
My practice with Demetria has been simply AMAZING. Through a combination of her yoga classes and her Kundalini prescriptions my life has completely transformed. Every day I feel stronger and stronger and I have shed layers of emotional baggage that was keeping me completely stuck in my life. I feel lighter, freer and more empowered then I have ever been and I am so grateful to have found her and her classes. She is a gifted teacher and when she says to expect miracles, she means it :)

We’ll be working with each other for an entire year, so it’s important that we take things slow and have an opportunity to really connect before moving forward. The first step is connecting on the phone/over video for a quick chat and vibe check. We call this a chemistry call.
In our chemistry call, I’ll ask you tell me a bit about yourself and your intentions through 3 specific questions:
Where are you now and where do you want to be a year from now?
I’ll also share a bit about my journey and you’ll have the opportunity ask any questions you have for me.
After our session, I’ll take the next day or two to meditate on our connection and I’ll follow up (via email) with an honest opinion of whether or not I think it’s the right time for us to work together / I’m the right coach for you.
+ WHAT IS COACHING AND HOW CAN IT HELP ME WITH MY SITUATION?
Coaching is a solution-focused approach to personal development that is designed to help you make lasting change in your life. As your Coach, I blend both modern/scientifically proven and ancient/ancestrally tested tools and techniques to help you evolve from where you are to where you want to be.
When we come together for a session, I listen. Not only to the words you choose, but to the space in between them. I listen to the nuances of your voice, the tone that you use and the energy you emit. I pay attention to your feelings, your body's movements and your facial expressions. I give you space to express your truth, without judgement and without interruption. We get clear about what you want and we create a plan to get you there.
Coaching is not therapy. Our purpose is not to uncover the deep psychological reasons behind your fears, anxieties, self-doubt, lack of motivation, patterns or limiting beliefs. Instead, we acknowledge that they exist and we create a strategy to set you free.
+ IS COACHING RIGHT FOR ME?
This program is designed for soulful, ambitious, purpose-driven women who crave more in their lives — more freedom, more support, more money, more joy, more intimacy, more friends, more time, more adventure, more choices, more love — and are committed to going the distance to make it happen (no matter how uncomfortable). If that's you, I'd love to support you.
+ WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE IT TO ONE OF MY SESSIONS?
From time to time, I understand you may need to reschedule one or more sessions. If/when this happens, you will have the opportunity to reschedule once per month for a total of 6 months. This gives you a total of 6 opportunities to reschedule your sessions (once per month for up to 6 months). If you are unable to make your rescheduled session, it will be forfeited.
+ WHAT'S YOUR REFUND POLICY?
Year of Liberation is non-refundable. Why? Because this program is a one-of-a-kind offering that requires extensive, personal preparation.
I know from personal experience how easy it is to drop money on things you don't really want, need or are ready for, especially when there is an easy-peasy refund policy in place. Please shop mindfully and know that I am only accepting 4 women this year.
If you want to work with me in this way, trust your instincts. There's something within you that's craving this experience. Indulge. Let signing up be an initiation in liberation.
Remember: listening to and trusting yourself is always the most miraculous step forward. Whether that means participating in Year of Liberation, or not, allow yourself to follow your desires, pay sweet attention to your inner wisdom, and embrace your deepest truths.
