where pain is normalized and our darkness embraced

a space dedicated to those with a love-hate relationship with pain, looking for a compassionate and honest approach to resisting the temptation of self-sabotage, whilst making pain our ally in our quest for deeper healing, greater self-awareness, connection and unconditional love. 

to acknowledge and work with our "inner masochist" - the part of us that chooses pain either consciously or unconsciously - and offer it curiosity, compassion and acceptance so that it remembers it is strong enough to CHOOSE pain mindfully, rather than believing that any pain in our lives has power over us.


to bring our desires out of the darkness and into the light, release our shame, summon our courage and choose our pain wisely - instead of carelessly. 


untangling ourselves from the harmful behaviors and painful patterns that derail our success and joy, when we are intrinsically compelled to choose suffering over and over...


simple, when you break it down. courage, self-compassion, love, resilience, self-acceptance... it should be easy right? at times only in theory until things get tough...

so for the old souls, the deep thinkers, the bleeding hearts and tortured artists - masochists in one form or another, let's explore our dark side with a little more curiosity, compassion and safety together, because we aren't in this alone. 







untangling from the bonds of masochism, in any facet, can be a lonely, draining and at times hopeless process. Curious to speak with Rachel on conscious masochism, how to release unhealthy attachments to unconscious masochistic tendencies, and explore tools with an encouraging sister by your side, one who knows this territory from her own trials and experiences?
