Why do we hide?
We hide because we have been taught that WHO WE ARE is not safe, is shameful, or undesirable.
We’ve come to believe that every little thing about us as women is taboo.
Too this, too that. Not enough this, not enough that
It’s exhausting to sift through and contort ourselves to fit the conflicting messages out there, right?
And we suffer because of it.
We become depressed, anxious, addicted, broke, exhausted, in dead-end relationships, unfulfilled, unexpressed, and bound up in the chains of shame.
Within the ‘taboo’ aspects of ourselves lives the antidote we seek. We must dive in to our hidden, avoided, feared piles of hush-hush in a safe, non-judgmental and supportive container in order to end our suffering.
We have to go deeply inside the things we are afraid of, ashamed of, and deny in order to thrive.
We have to OWN each and every one of the things that we have banished.
Every last taboo.
Here’s what I believe:
Our discarded parts are our actual superpower … not the masks we wear.
Our bodies are our temples - literally.
All the things we’ve been taught to be ashamed of? They are the very things that will set us free.
We crave a relationship with pleasure. And we need to re-learn our relationship to it.
We crave devotion: we want to give it, and we want to receive it.
We *know* (somewhere deep down inside) we ARE holy.
We desire to *feel* our OWN potency. Soften our armor. Transmit our undulating truths. Receive all that we desire.
Simply put, we desire to live luscious, free, and deeply meaningful lives.
We just got a little lost along the way.
Let’s get found, shall we?
I guide visionaries, creatives, and women who want MORE into fulfilling your desires through unlocking your most luminous, abundant, and utterly freaking life-changing sanctuary that sits inside you, waiting … underneath all the things you have banished.
I’ll share with you some of the lost sacred arts, forbidden secrets, temple rituals, myths and archetypes that have helped me feel all comfy and cozy while exploring the taboo … and the profound AF facts of how we were culturized from day one to (barely) get by as less than the powerful, pleasurable, portals of possibility that WE ARE.
I am receiving applications for the 1 : 1 mentorship program I’ve designed for women who want to live from their PLEASURE, come out of hiding, express with deeply activated PURPOSE, and tap their one-of-a-kind vein of FORBIDDEN GOLD that wants to feed their body, mind, and soul.
Banished truths rise up around topics like these in session with me :
Anger . Sorrow . Money . Body . Beauty . Sex . Sensuality . Secrets .
Fantasy . Motherhood . Pleasure . Self-pleasure . Over-giving . Jealousy . Desire .
Depression as a calling . Trauma . Death .
Are you ready to invoke your banished, taboo, desirous self?
Working one-on-one with Erin is a unique experience that can be summed up in one word: magical. She holds a warm, safe space filled with deep connection. She looks deep into your eyes, heart, and soul, and provides a mirror to reflect back exactly what you need to grow, explore, and sink a little deeper into yourself. She does this with her whole heart - utilizing kindness, levity, humor, genuine compassion, and sometimes brutal honesty - all with the goal of supporting you in discovering your inner desires and encouraging you to live your life from the sacred place of truly knowing who you are and what you bring to this world. Erin is a fiercely loyal and powerful ally in your journey to yourself. - K.L.
I was very excited to have the opportunity to engage in private creativity sessions with Erin Allen Faith for her online class Deeper, but I had no reason to expect that they would be as transformative as they have been.
As a practicing therapist, I have a certain set of skills that I look for in someone before I feel comfortable taking a conversation to a deeper level...Erin got me there in the first 15 minutes of our first session.
There is extensive research that shows that the building blocks of ANY therapeutic relationship are warmth, empathy, and genuineness. Without these qualities, there is no alliance, therefore healing is more challenging... I can resoundingly endorse that Erin has these qualities in abundance. I came away from the work with Erin changed for the better, and I felt completely understood.
Erin possess an innate way of opening her heart and mind to be completely available to you and offering clear, concise, wise feedback. I wholeheartedly look forward to any opportunity to engage in work with Erin in the future. - M.I.
TABOO IS FOR YOU IF :
You are a woman, from any walk of life, any sexual orientation, any background.
You would benefit from 4 months of 1 : 1 mentoring through (recorded) video, and extra support through an online space for just the two of us.
You are all about unlocking the forbidden, the banished, all the things your mother or your Sunday School teacher told you were bad for you.
You are a shadow worker. Excavator. Deep diver. Mythology and archetype diva who can rock an allegory like there’s no tomorrow.
You are FIERCE. Ya know, you burn sage like a mofo but crave more passion, ritual, and actual magic in your life. Like a whole frigging inferno of it.
Speaking of … you like getting hot, and thrive on WALKING THE FIRE of transformation.
You feel coiled up, dried out, directionless, passionless, and stuck.
You KNOW there is more to your one precious life than what you are just getting through, and just surviving.
You want to create connection in a holy AF space we will curate together to encourage, uplift, and enliven your TRUE desirous, divine self.
TABOO is NOT:
A ‘snap your fingers and wave a magic wand’ program - your FULL attention is required, hence the application process. We will go places together if you know what I mean, and you will definitely want to bring your full headspace, heartspace, and soulspace.
Anything less than deep introspection and soul work. We are going to peel back some serious untruths about being a woman, a human, and alive.
A pretty as pie and sweet lil journey, though the forbidden fruits born of your attention to yourself will be luscious, life-changing and abundant.
For the love-and-light crowd. The levitators. The bypassers. Nope. We are going to open doors and peer into dank and dusty corners that might not work for you if you prefer to keep it light.
A place to hate on the masculine side of things (or anything for that matter), because that doesn’t really solve anything, and it doesn’t elevate anyone, which is the point here. Also. Men are holy, too.
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT an art workshop or mentorship, though if you are a creative being interested in honing your expressive skills through deep shadow diving, pleasure hunting, and liberation of your voice - this is definitely a delicious alignment with that desire.
Because of the intimate level of work we will be doing together, and the amount of devotion I will pour onto each woman in my program, TABOO is entered into as a sacred container and in sacred agreement.
The first step is to fill out the invitation form linked above, after which we will schedule a complimentary 30 minute session.
The core of your true Self is never lost. Let go of all the pretending and the becoming you've done just to belong. Curl up with your rawness and come home. You don't have to find yourSelf ... you just have to let your Self in.
