If you’ve been under a rock about the Women’s Mafia 11th anniversary gala benefitting ReachWithin, here goes… Imagine the elevator doors opening into a beautiful plush lobby where the winding hallway opens to reveal a dimly lit ballroom sitting on the penthouse of a building in the Flat Iron.
You arrive and are greeted with adornment of golden temporary jewels via Tribe Tats and divinely inspired henna designs on your delicate hands via Margie Nugent while sipping on delicious Daily Greens juices or enjoying a perfect cocktail!
Over at the opposite end of the ballroom you see Carmen Rubio setting up for your glamour photo. You get your picture taken by Carmen or photo artist Marcy Andrew Deliz before DJ Sharri starts to play luscious melodies and you strut in your Goddess costume to the dance floor.
Dancing, you look out the window to see the Empire State twinkling while you and your friends turn the heat up with your moves.
You pause to recoup and head on over to The Lifestyle Lounge pop up, where you receive a complimentary miracle stretch with Marina Simovic and sit down to speak to Dieniz Costa about dipping into your sacred sensuality, since you’ve been thinking about fully claiming your Goddess Power!
While you’re there you also have a mini consult with Kelly Lynn Adams about taking the next steps with your career and you hear some awesome astrology tips with Jeanny Tsai.
You feel so uplifted about your future you celebrate by treating yourself to a gorgeous piece of jewelry at Georgianna Kouliano’s table and you participate in the mini Cacao ceremonies with Chrysalis Unfurling before indulging in yummy hors d’ oeuvres.
All this plus hula hooping with Isamar Gonzales, making art with Inspirality & VitaminR, complimentary energy healing with Nathalie Jaspar, mini consults with Meg Conkling, the curly hair alchemist (because your next haircut will be the bomb), life coaching with Sydney Campos, Goddess portraiture with Lisa Levart, prophetic Tarot with Denise DePass, soul revealing sessions with Kell Morton and by 11pm you go home with a cup that runneth over!
Mmmmmmm get ready, get your tickets…

Imagine if you could begin using your workout to train your body to become so radiant, you stop traffic on the way out.
This is not only do-able, it makes working out a lot more interesting. You may find you cannot wait to strap on those tennies and get moving.
We do not need to lose a pound or tighten a thing to step into Radiance. It is the act of emitting light. Imagine someone’s face who is smiling brightly. They are literally beaming light. We can shine anytime we choose, and the more we train for it, the better we get at it.
Whether we are aware of it or not, many of us already do all sorts of things to augment Radiance. Think bedazzled, bling and glitter. It’s all designed to bring more light energy to the body. But, it’s not the only way can do this.
It’s one thing to wear that sparkly dress, it’s another thing to become it.
We can emit Radiance from the inside out. However, sometimes it’s not so easy to find our light. Sitting for hours at work, stress and fatigue do a number on our shine. That’s why our exercise routine is the perfect place to get it back.
During exercise, we generate heat and get energy flowing. When you combine your workout with the 5-step process outlined here, you can become a master of Radiance.
5 Steps to Cultivating Radiance During Your Workouts:
1. Set a Specific Intention
Before your workout begins, set your intention. What quality do you want to embody? Do you want to sparkle like diamonds or be explosive like fireworks? Do you want to glimmer like the surface of the ocean at sunrise or do you want to simmer like Jessica Rabbit? Be very specific and bring that intention to every movement you make.
2. Practice Emitting Light
After each work period, feel the intensity you’ve generated and imagine pouring it from your heart onto the person you love most in the world. Where attention goes, energy follows. Therefore, you may be surprised how your loved ones will feel you doing this and respond. If in the beginning it feels like you are making it up, stay with it. Once you see the impact it has on the people, you will know it’s real.
3. Get Your Flow On
During your workout, get everything in your body moving. Use the time to release stuck energy. Radiance is about Flow, so we want to bring as much Flow as possible. Rather than only focusing one body part, get every part of you moving: upper body, lower body and everything in between.
Embodiment is the act of running a certain energy through your body. We see actors do this all the time as they transform themselves into a role. Be deliberate in how you walk, talk and move about your workout. Pretend you were an actress and your job was to show someone what pure Radiance looks like in the way you carry your body.
5. Create Your On/Off Switch
Once you become really good at this, you may quickly realize why you don’t already do this all of the time. Stopping traffic can be overrated when it comes with whistles, cat calls and pesky admirers interrupting your workout. Therefore, Step #5 is to master the art of modulating your Radiance. In the same way you dialed it up, you dial it right back down. This way, you are at choice. If being invisible is to your advantage, you do that. If being shiny is to your advantage, you do that. Radiance becomes a skill you can turn on and off as you choose.
With these exercises, you build the foundation of Radiance in your “muscle memory.” In this way, you will naturally carry more Radiance in your life. Ideally, you become so good at embodying Radiance that you can access it at will, such as the moment when Mr. Right walks in the room and you want to be the brightest thing in his view.
