We just changed the name of our program, and it was formerly called the Soulful Women Certificate Program. Enjoy the video, but please note that it has not yet been updated with the new program name!
Are you called to play your ideal role in leading the way to a world of love, cooperation and peace?
If you have come to this page, chances are you are the kind of woman that wants to embody a new kind of ecstatic power and feminine fullness – the new Soulful Woman that is now emerging. That Soulful Woman is not only positively impacting the world, she’s deeply spiritual, joyful and whole. She’s at peace with herself and at one with life.
And we need more Soulful Women today... including you!
It’s undeniable that the world faces many crises, but we are also in a time of enormous opportunity – especially as women. Never before have we had so many careers available to us in the outer world. And never before have we had the chance to grow into our new powers on the inner level.
In fact, it is the access to the deepest lineages of feminine wisdom – and the ability to join together in sacred community to activate our new capacities – that is so vital now. It’s time to go beyond becoming more masculine to prove our worth: it’s time to claim our rightful divine roles in the world, while embracing and cherishing all of who we are as feminine beings.
In the Soulful Women School, we believe the time is NOW to empower conscious, powerful and brilliant women like YOU to step forward in this new era and give birth to your soul’s calling.
So the big question is how do we stand powerfully in the world, while staying deeply attuned to the sacred current pulsing through our veins?
How do we connect to a deeper sense of meaning and infuse that into our lives and our world?
In ancient times, women seeking answers to these questions were often called into what were called “mystery schools.”
From the Isis temples of ancient Egypt to the Inanna temples of Sumeria, from Avalon to the Oracle at Delphi, women came to seek training and remembrance of their inner divinity and development of spiritual and practical skills to step into their power. But eventually most of these lineages and the knowledge they held disappeared into the dark, one by one.
However, there are some mystery schools that remain alive. And what is offered here, through the form of the Feminine Alchemy Immersion Program, is an ancient mystery school that’s been adapted to meet our very modern context and our current needs.
You may wonder what a mystery school can offer you today. In fact, we asked that question ourselves before we entered one.... and then found so much transformation that we had to grow it into our current-day Feminine Alchemy Immersion Program.
In this program, you will have an opportunity to retrieve and reconnect with your own feminine soul and a sense of purpose and meaning in life. You will be offered countless opportunities to heal the wounds that are operating at both the collective and personal level of your being – so you can feel radiant, vibrant and fully alive. You’ll get in deeper touch with your creative spark, your sensuality and your truth.
From that empowered place, you can – and will – manifest a life that feels joyful, abundant and fully aligned with your soul mission.
The Feminine Alchemy Immersion Program offers a step-by-step pathway for evolving your soul and your psyche, through an initiatory journey into 13 archetypes of the sacred feminine.
These archetypes all live inside you, but many of them may be dormant, often suppressed or feared during millennia of masculine dominance.
So, in our wisdom school, we provide a sacred container where the fullness of you – in all your archetypes – can be re-ignited, re-engaged and fully embodied.
The result is the birth of a more soul-connected, juicy, radiantly empowered You. Expect to become a more full-spectrum being – comfortable in your wise depths, at home in your wildness and willing to shine with your gifts. As you stand in your full feminine radiance, it ripples into your outer world as well.
Through this program, we’ve been witness to countless women expanding their access to deeper intuitions and memories, not to mention resurrecting buried pieces of their feminine soul. Others have been freed from age old patterns – including abandonment, trauma, addictions or feelings that they were somehow not enough (to name a few).
We’ve seen many women FINALLY have the courage to pursue their deepest soul desires and experience great success doing it.
We’ve witnessed the healing of family relationships and intimate partnerships. Some sisters, once clear of their most damaging shadow material, have called in the beloved they’d always hoped would appear.
We’ve witnessed women’s connection to their deep spirit of service and their desire to be a healing vessel for women and children around the world.
It’s a different experience for each participant in the program because we are all so different.
But no matter what our life situation is, we all do truly need support to hold and love us as we shed our old skins, expand our vision of ourselves, and birth the next levels of our being.
Yet in our fractured society, most of us don’t have the deepest level of support to give birth to our dreams – or haven’t been taught how to actually do it. So we end up becoming our own biggest obstacles to success.
Well, we KNOW you are here to make a unique contribution to the planet. And we KNOW you can learn to release old patterns and beliefs that have served as survival mechanisms, so that something greater can be born. And we KNOW we can support you to move through an initiatory gateway toward a greater than imagined future.
The Feminine Alchemy Immersion Program offers the support and tools you need to become the woman you were born to be.
After talking with thousands of women leaders and participants in our programs, we are clear that women today are ready to be grounded in a true sacred lineage – WHILE taking practical and definitive actions that make a world of difference.
We know that our divine task is hold fast to the sacred feminine thread, while at the same time attending to our family responsibilities – including children or aging parents, attending to an often-overflowing email inbox, unceasing cell phones and never-ending TO DO lists. It’s not primarily about going off to a remote temple for an extended period (though it can be helpful at times). It’s about bringing that quality of depth into our daily lives.
So how do we do it?
How do we offer our deepest soul gifts to the world in a way that feels elegant, graceful and aligned? And how can we offer ourselves in true SERVICE to the planet, providing healing and love to some of the darkest corners of the Earth?
Answering these questions is no easy task. But it’s what’s required of a sacred woman living today.
As we integrate the ancient female lineages of the past – and re-ignite the fires of schools like Avalon, Dendara, Delphi, Egypt, the Maya and so many more – we begin to re-weave the missing thread in our souls and our psyches...
...And we can remember why we are truly here in this lifetime.
That said, remembering is only one piece of the puzzle. The call today is to stay connected to this ancient wisdom, while evolving our consciousness and our methods to match our current day realities.
The Feminine Alchemy Immersion Program offers a pathway for living your feminine wisdom in a modern world. Through our 7-month certification program, we are offering you a potent, transformative journey that will enable you to deepen your soulful presence, expand your vision for what’s possible, and move into practical action doing the work you’re called to do in the world.
As you do so, you will reconnect with the Earth, your body – and with the very essence of life. Rather than feeling isolated and alone, you will be welcomed into a global sisterhood that will be there to celebrate your joys, and which will hold you through your darkest hours.
And you will have the inner confidence and strength to follow your heart and live your truth. As a result, you will make a true difference on our planet, and have a life that you love.
You Don’t Have to Do it Alone...
This program is one that creates a sacred space in which you are held by a community of other women, as you each become experts in midwifing yourselves – and each other – into your deeper soul’s calling.
The truth is that we are not designed to give birth alone. So it’s our honor and delight to be with you in this program, so that you can be held, supported, guided and nurtured as you bring new life into being.
Besides, it’s much easier, more potent, more comforting – and much more fun – to have a team of soulful midwives supporting you in your birthing process every step of the way, holding your hand and celebrating your successes (however big or small).
Bridging Deep Inner World with Our Everyday Lives
In this life-changing program, we’re offering the wisdom and depth of an ancient mystery school within a modern context. We also offer a support network and accountability for the practical steps you need to take to deeply impact the world and enjoy a fulfilling and prosperous life in all areas – your health and wellbeing, your family and relationships, your vocation, your creativity, your service and your deepest calling.
Through their own inner and outer transformational work, we have become adept at tapping into the potent powers of the archetypal world of the Divine Feminine to generate positive shifts in our own lives, and begin making our greatest impact – helping thousands of women transform their lives.
Our planet and humanity-at-large have never been more in need of skilled, trained and capable soulful women leaders who can birth their own potential, and then lead others into their soul’s true calling. This program is specifically designed to support you to make the inner shifts necessary to live your soul’s destiny to the fullest.
We are calling you to imagine beyond the confines of what you think is possible, and stand in the truth of YOUR MAGNIFICENCE. We are calling you to take outrageous and remarkable actions in your life, so you can truly midwife the planetary shifts we face, and manifest your greatest visions for your life and our world.
Join us, and we will lift you into a life that is aligned with who you really are and what you are really here to do!
What recent graduates say about the Feminine Alchemy Immersion Program:
“I am in a deep state of gratitude for my experience with the Soulful Women’s Program. Little did I know that that momentous decision would lead to the growth, the healing and the expansion that I feel in my soul and my being now. I can never repay Devaa, Elayne and the rest of you for being part of bringing forth the remembrance, the witnessing, the support and the love which has led me to this moment.
Through this program, I was able to heal and move lifelong pain and trauma out of my body, so my body now feels tangibly different! The power of the archetypes and this work is profound.
As facilitators, what I love is that Elayne and Devaa are both fully in their power. They are also down-to-earth, honest and authentic. They embody a cauldron of deep safety and also utter sacredness. They have the capacity in one moment to be very very tender, and in the next moment cut through to the chase – inviting you to go deeper, move forward, and find what you are searching for.
Of all the programs out there – and I’ve participated in a lot of them – this one takes it to the core. If you are interested in going for true depth of soul development, then this is the program for you. To me, there is no amount of money that I could pay that would be too much, given all I received from this program. It has made a profound difference in my life.”
– Patricia Benavidez, Elementary School Teacher
“Before I started the Feminine Alchemy Immersion Program, I really wanted to step into my leadership and my power. I felt a huge calling in my heart that I could not ignore. I knew had to do something MORE with my life – which was not really working the way I was living it. Through this program, I was able to become the woman I always knew I was born to be. Things started very quickly falling into place in my life. For example, I lovingly ended a relationship that was no longer serving me. My new job became completely solid, and now I am the Vice President, managing a million-dollar business (which is still amazing to me!). I am part of an amazing new community of sisters, and the list goes on...
My life has taken a complete 180-degree turn for the better. And I know that I could not have done it without Devaa and Elayne’s support. These two are truly amazing facilitators! The connections and relationships that I’ve made with the other women in the program are priceless. The learning, growth and development that I’ve experienced are more than priceless. What I’ve seen happen with other women in the program is nothing short of a miracle. I absolutely recommend this program! What are you waiting for? Just do it!”
– Kim Carpenter, VP of Operations & Head Marketing Trainer
“My life is completely transformed in every way. I have a real inner confidence now in who I am, and why I’m here, and what I’m here to do. I moved through all the shame I’ve been holding over the years of actually not wanting to fully show up; and something much brighter and lighter and more sparkling has shown up.
And of course because of that, my whole life – all my relationships including the ones closest to me, with my husband and my daughter – are changing. They’re very tender and beautiful and loving, and they’ve been quite tense for the last few years. So it has gone from that to every areas of my life, really.”
– Melanie Eclare, Photographer, Priestess & Loving Mother
“I’m emerging from this program with exactly what I needed – a feeling of wholeness I didn’t even know I was seeking. If you had asked me two years ago if I’d be happy with my work, I would have told you that you were crazy because I was so confused. But with the help of this program, I kept listening to the clues and staying in my heart, and then taking action that was coming from my intuition, my inner wisdom – rather than taking action that was just being directed by fear and directed by my head. And now I have a business that I love, where I’m using my business skills to help creative women bring their gift to the world...and I love what I do.
So there was this huge transformation in my work, and then also in my marriage. We’re now in marital therapy, and I thought we were going to end things. But in working with the two of you, and staying in my heart but also staying in my power, I’ve ended up in a much better place in my marriage as well.”
– Leela Somaya, Business Entrepreneur and Coach
“As facilitators, Devaa and Elayne are a wonderful combination of the right and left brain. They wove us all together in a loving, playful open container, where we were deeply held. I was always searching for a feeling of belonging. My parents are no longer alive, and I have no siblings. So this feeling of "home" was quite elusive. The program with Devaa and Elayne created lifelong deep connections. I feel known, seen and held in a way that exceeds anything I have ever experienced. Having this level of unconditional support opened me to my dream in life to be a fashion designer, and my choice to move forward with it.”
– Rana Stewart, Fashion Designer and Entertainer

What Top Thought Leaders and Other Extraordinary Women Say About Devaa and Elayne...
"I’ve met a lot of teachers, healers and leaders in my years on the speaking circuit. When I wanted to dive deeper with my work and share from a new level of vulnerability, I turned to Devaa. She helped me lead from my authenticity, connect with my depth, and open in ways that proved energizing and effective. Her support enabled me to go to a whole new level in my public presentation, and bring new qualities to my leadership. She helped me in a million ways that I cannot even describe. I am blessed by her presence. Thank you Devaa!"
– Marci Shimoff, Bestselling author with over 14 million books sold, including Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul and Happy for No Reason
“Elayne is a safe and soft place to land. However, she will call you out on your B.S. – which is the role of a coach. She is a fine blend of love, strength, compassion and a total stand for everything that you say you want to create in your life. She can hold the space like no other.”
– Vasavi Kumar, Happy wife, self-discovery junkie and transformational life coach
"Devaa is a living example of the Evolutionary Woman arising in our midst. Combining brilliant intellect, business experience, spiritual development, and now a major outreach into the world to assist is all in our evolution, she is a loving and inspiring woman leading us forward in the 21st century."
– Barbara Marx Hubbard, Foundation for Conscious Evolution
“Working with Elayne & Devaa has been one of the more poignant, fulfilling and empowering of my life experiences to date. Both of these women are extremely gifted in identifying and bringing out the strengths, skills and beauty of each individual that they come into contact with. In my own work with them, I have felt continuously seen, heard and held by their unique feminine presence, which is sometimes amazingly gentle and compassionate, and at other times fierce and full of fire – igniting my own inner flame. Always, they come from love.”
– Suraya Susana Keating, MFT, Registered Drama Therapist
"The time (or should I say timelessness) that I spent with Devaa was profound. After years of seeing all kinds of ’experts’ I can honestly say the time with Devaa broke something loose, and now I feel burden-free, as well as much lighter and more joyful. I recommend her work to anyone who is ready to fly."
– Marcia Wieder, CEO and Founder Dream University
“My journey with Elayne has been of utmost value to me. I’m eternally grateful. Our work together has been incredibly healing, powerful and truly transformational. For me, Elayne has been a gentle, loving and yet powerful guide who has supported me in overcoming many challenges stemming from childhood and into my adult life. The most beautiful part of our work together is it has allowed me to step into my full potential as a woman, a wife, a teacher and coach. And it has allowed me to share this wisdom and these benefits with my family and community.”
– Tisha Lin,Creator of Pleasurable Periods, CHHC, AADP.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Devaa as a coach and mentor for a year. Devaa brings a grounded, authentic presence to each session, and is able to drop deep into what is real. She is gentle enough to create a nurturing, safe space, and bold enough to cut through the extraneous and say what needs to be said to evoke change. Devaa is an evolutionary change agent and an exemplar who brings her whole self to supporting her clients to bring their fullest, most radiant selves to the world.”
– Lissin LevChaya, Co-Director & Performer of Earthcapades; Officiant

– Kendra Faye, Musician, Healer, Yoga Instructor, Raw Food Chef
"After working with Devaa & Elayne, I feel so much more connected to my heart, purpose, passion, and a deep sense of my personal spirit. The authenticity practiced in the gatherings has brought me closer to my true essence."
– Joan Ivazes, Singer/Songwriter/Sound Healing Practitioner
"Elayne you are potent expression of female energy. Your deep and wise insights. Your wild women. Your fun. Your joy. Your supportive collaboration. The whole – and I emphasize whole – enchilada. You have this powerful energy as the basis for whatever it is that you are building – and it is big!"
– Erin Rasmussen
"Devaa could be called a ‘spiritual midwife,’ assisting people in the birthing their inner-selves. She empowers you, assists you, gently encourages you, and honors you for your efforts. With Devaa’s impeccable assistance, I was able to go through what is so far the most powerful experience of my life. I am extremely grateful!"
– Nathalie Daneau, Intuitive Coach and Counselor
How Can I Participate?
The Feminine Alchemy Immersion Program has two levels of participation and certification:
The Pearl Program is for women who are newer to their transformational journey. This tier offers a pathway to step out of your “ordinary” day-to-day life into a much bigger possibility for you who are, and what you are here to do.
The Diamond Advanced Program is designed for women who are already successful in their own right, but who know there is something deeper that wants to unfold. You will receive substantial personalized attention, with one-on-one coaching for your soul’s unfolding, as well as your work in the world. This level of participation is by application only, as it in high demand.
As someone interested in the Pearl Program, you have been on a spiritual path, and now you are ready to go much deeper. You know you want to make a big contribution and find meaning, but perhaps you feel disconnected from your true purpose and don’t know what steps to take. You are someone who wants to make a living that is aligned with your core passions, but you are not there yet. You sense you are a leader, but you don’t yet have a lot of experience in leadership positions.
The Pearl Program offers a pathway to step into a much bigger possibility for who are, and what you are called to do. You will spend seven months deepening your lived experience of the divine feminine, and bringing it forward in the world. You will have time and a structure to clarify your creative vision and align it with your passion. You’ll also learn how to bring it into manifestation, so you can be financially rewarded for living your purpose. And you’ll do this in a community of amazing women who are ready to “go the distance” with you.
The Ruby Program is designed for inspiring women who are already thriving in their own right, but who know there is something deeper that is still waiting to unfold, and you want personalized attention through the process. Though you may have done quite a lot of transformational work already, you know there are still levels of your being and psyche that are ready to be blossom at the next level – in alignment with your deeper awakening.
You are ripe for our ruby program if you are ready to move beyond your comfort zone, you are yearning to reach even deeper into your soul, and extend your impact into the world.
In fact, you are yearning for an Initiation that will hold you deeply accountable to show up at this next level of your being, birthing your visions in service to the greater good. You are called to stretch beyond your current success, to deepen your own archetypal and mythic presence on the planet. And you know that now is the time for you to step up and respond to the call that lives deep within your belly – in service to your passionate purpose.
The Ruby program provides a structure and personal support to uncompromisingly hold you to your deepest vision and inner knowing. You will be surrounded by other women who will support you to be a woman of soulful action.
You Will Be Personally Mentored in the Ruby Program
In the Ruby Program, we will be partnering with you and sharing our gifts in full
service to your transformation. You will be personally mentored, witnessed, and held accountable, as you take the risks to leap beyond what you’ve imagined possible.
We will provide a profound, ongoing sacred circle where you will be called into your larger-than-life “archetypal” Self, and catalyzed into action from this place.
We know that it takes a more personalized program to initiate you into a high level
of soulful presence and planetary leadership. And for this reason, we have developed the Ruby Program. You will have unparalleled access to your coach throughout the 7-month program. You will also be invited to join our monthly “Soul Sister Circle” where you are part of an intimate community of support with calls that we will personally facilitate.
In addition, on our weekly calls with the larger circle, you will receive support and guidance to integrate these soul teachings with practical leadership skills – all to prepare you to step more fully into your unique role as a soulful woman of the Shift.
The Ruby Program accepts only a small number of participants to increase intimacy and impact. We also need to be sure that we are all fully aligned and that there is a good “fit” between your needs and what we can offer. So the Ruby Program is by application only.
Classes are Wednesdays, 5-7pm Pacific,
January 28 through the end of August, 2015 .
Replays are Thursdays at 11am, Pacific.
Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed!

This organization is dedicated to the wisdom teachings of the Divine Feminine and to building a sanctuary devoted to the awakening of humanity.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a phone line (or an equivalent voice service). If there is more than one person in your household taking the course, you will each need your own line. We use MaestroConference to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions, participate in groups, and deepen your exploration of the course themes.
Please note that dialing MaestroConference from your phone is a regular toll call to California, and your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. You can also use Skype credit/subscription or Google Voice ( to dial in to MaestroConference, and you’ll need to use your virtual keypad to enter your PIN and to indicate that you want to ask a question. Other options include calling cards and discount long-distance carriers, and we also have a webcast which is free to use from anywhere in the world.
Q: Can I get benefit from the course if I miss the live classes?

Q: Can you give us more information about the collaborative ventures that are accessible to those of us in the Diamond Advanced Program?
A: As we get to know our Diamond program members and the offerings you are making in the world, there will likely be ways that we will choose to highlight your work within our own client bases. For example, if you are stepping out as a public speaker and your topic is relevant to our audience, we may offer you a speaking slot for a panel at one of our Inspiring Women Summits.
If you are offering a relevant product or service, you may be invited to give a presentation at one of our workshops or retreats. Or we may choose to highlight your work to a particular segment of our email lists. Alternatively, we may choose to support you by showing up at one of YOUR virtual telesummits (as a bonus call, for example), or through writing an endorsement for your work that you can use on your website.
We cannot, however, guarantee the nature of these collaborations or that they will happen at all. In order for us to endorse your work in this sort of public way, we must feel great about you and the work you’re offering in the world, and it must be a fit for our audience. Before getting to know you and your work at a deep level, we cannot say whether or not you will meet these criteria and exactly what sort of collaborative ventures might emerge. The collaborations will need to naturally emerge from the journey we take together. That said, it is our intention to support you and highlight your work when we can authentically do so.
