Goddess to the Core® EMPOWERED IMMERSION with Sierra Bender 

Featured Guest:
Sierra Bender, internationally renowned speaker & best selling author 

who will host a 3-hour immersion workshop followed by an afternoon of your choice of breakout workshops.

Goddess to the Core® will empower you to reclaim, restore and rejoice in your feminine essence by redefining fitness, beauty and power. It features empowerment tools, yoga, fitness, meditation, indigenous rituals, breath work and energetic healing.

During this immersive encounter a transformation takes place that impacts and bonds everyone together creating lasting friendships and a thriving Goddess community and tribe.

This workshop teaches that a Goddess standing in her core keeps all four planes of her existence spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically fit. Ultimately, to be healthier, happier, and better able to lead our families, friends, and communities to do the same for themselves.

Be warned: Goddess to the Core® will ignite your female spirit to exude a powerful presence and personify a new attitude that both you and those around you will notice and embrace.

RESULTS:

“Women pull forth their hidden power, beauty and self-worth. They learn to give themselves permission to take the resigns and LEAD THEIR LIFE fearlessly. They break free from what has been repressed and programmed by identifying traits and characteristic’s that historically have disempowered women. In this new found freedom they create new businesses, ask for raises, leave unhealthy relationships, renew their relationships by falling in love again, set boundaries and know their worth. They learn the basic rule of Goddess Empowerment. The difference between a Goddess and a Princess is…The Goddess Saves Herself. THE END. – Sierra Bender

Sierra taught her powerful methodology in leading institutes and organizations in medicine, law, and science including the American Institute of Economic Research, Harvard Law, Simmons College, University of Puerto Rico, and Mindfulness Center & Institute. Her extensive clientele have included the Vanderbilt Cancer Center in Tennessee, Olympic and NHL athletes, Wall Street and Fortune 500 executives, and global businesses such as Time Warner, BMI, Revlon, and American Express.

Her voice and mission have spread around the globe, from the United States to Canada, Australia, Germany, UK, Mexico, and South America. Sierra’s work has been featured on Oprah Radio, CBS, USA Today, Yoga Journal, Univision Global and Country Music Television (CMT), Marie Claire, Shape, Whole Living, Fit Yoga, and Yoga International.

Through the The Sierra Bender Method for Personal & Professional Empowerment (SBM) , a whole new generation of women and girls is not only learning about empowerment, but living it. And there’s not just anecdotal evidence to back it up.

SBM has been clinically researched and proven in women’s empowerment by the Department of Psychology at American University in Washington, DC, with these incredible results among participants:

How to Reclaim Your Relationship to Money Without Compromising Who You Are. What if money had a soul? A conversation-driven session to help shift your relationship to money.

Money is a symptom of your inner life and many women simply have not learned how to incorporate the power of wealth into their life physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually. I think wealthy women who are prepared to honor this tool for what it is have the capacity to consciousness change the world.  Learn more about Andrea HERE.

The Empowered Event was created with the intention to offer experiential tools for women to live an empowered life. 

Jennifer Alyse believes that as we model Empowered behaviors, we in turn are benefiting the women of tomorrow. 

Be a part of a new tomorrow, and come be a part of the 2nd Annual Empowered Event this May 21st, 2017, held at the Nines hotel.


Jennifer Alyse is a professional photographer and a speaker working throughout the country with leading female entrepreneurs, authors, and thought leaders. Jennifer uses photography and public speaking as vehicles to promote personal, social, environmental and spiritual development. Her work has been on the pages of multiple publications and most recently has been featured on the cover of Mindful Magazine.

Alumni of W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, with over ten years of experience in the fashion industry both in front and behind the camera, Jennifer is a passionate entrepreneur and activist for positive change. She draws on personal experience of growth and adversity in life to empower her clients and uplift those around her. 

Jennifer created and hosted the debut of Empowered, an annual event for over 100 women in May of 2016, benefitting Girls Inc of the Pacific NW. She continues to promote the significance of empowerment for women through her Empowered Series. She is also in the process of co-creating the Kinsight Project, using photography and film to reignite generational connections and to honor our elders.

Jennifer believes that to be seen for our true selves gives us permission to awaken to our greatest lives and to act for the greater good of all humankind. She will continue to facilitate, promote and lead the movement to make this belief a reality.
