As a creative feminine leader, prioritising your aliveness is your greatest act of service

In a world that demands fast and polished, imagine a haven where emotional depth is encouraged, embodied sensuality is relished and the slow-burn is Queen.

An Embodied Pleasure Pilgrimage for Creative Feminine Leaders

Join Now

Inside Luminess, we believe that when a woman embodies her creative + sensual power, everyone benefits.

We’re here to help you amplify your creative and expressive gifts.
Because whole, healed and flourishing women create the kind of change that sticks.

We are not here for the fluffy spiritual-bypassing jazz.

We stand for personal and collective liberation.

+ Freedom from being labelled “too much”
+ Freedom from feeling not enough
+ Freedom from our mother wounds
+ Freedom from our trauma spells
+ Freedom from conforming to the shoulds
+ Freedom from self-sabotage
+ Freedom from our money blocks
+ Freedom from binaries and marginalization
+ Freedom from patriarchal indoctrination

Freedom to express all of who we are, joyfully and without apology.

Envision an intimate alchemical container; where pleasure leads, prosperity flows and your pain becomes your power.


Inside this community is everything you need to make major shifts in your creative leadership: embodiment, somatic tools and grounded spirituality teachings and practices; as well as intimate 1:1 support and the most incredible network of inspirational creatives to light your way.

Here’s a (not-so-secret) secret: 

Your inner good girl will hijack your potential if you let her.

In fact - she probably already has.

Splitting your identity into neat little boxes and falling prey to “comparison-itis” and all the SHOULDS, will leave your juice for life all dried up.

Inside Luminess, we’re all about getting ourselves unsMothered.

Basically, this means unlearning all the ways we’ve been creatively and sensually stifled, learning to own and express our unique brilliance, and then practicing living in devotion to our whole selves (forever - without apology).


Well, actually it’s not that simple at all. 

That’s why we need each other.

Luminess stands for a new culture of feminine leadership, devoted to embodied exploration and creative expression.


We hold reverence for the alchemical possibilities available when we stay open to pleasure while honouring our pain.

Is Luminess the right place for your leadership to bloom?


This embodied feminine eco-system is a match for you, if:

  1. You have a vision for a more integrated, rooted, and re-sourced life
  2. You’re all about the slow-burn; favouring sustainable growth over flimsy quick fixes and cookie cutter success formulas
  3. You geek out on all things somatics and embodiment, wanting to learn, heal and grow through the wisdom of the body 
  4. You’re ready to uplevel and take integrated, meaningful action towards your desires
  5. You crave mature mentorship to enhance your creativity, visibility, expression and prosperity
  6. You long for a prosperous livelihood alongside mothering (without compromising your values)
  7. You’re ready to back yourself and expand into your potential - without burning out


If you’re an ambitious change-making woman with a curious spirit and wild dreams, then you’ve found your place to create the life of pleasure and prosperity you desire.



~ you will feel more clear and aligned with your purpose than ever before

~ you will heal and grow through pleasure, sensuality and somatic practice

~ you will embody your true creative nature

~ you will turn your grief into personal power

~ you will find courage you never knew you had (and lose shame and fear in the process)

~ you will access your authentic voice and express yourself with confidence

~ you will create positive sustainable impact as a changemaker 

~ you will increase prosperity in every aspect of your life

~ you will get serious about justice-oriented, socially responsible leadership

~ you will embody sovereign, integrated motherhood (the kind that heals generations)

Welcome to an intimate experience designed specifically for creative women leaders.

Where depth and complexity are honoured and pleasure and prosperity are redefined.

Here’s the uncomfortable truth:


Until we’re unsMothered from the cultural programming that tells us we’re NOT ENOUGH as we are, we will continue to let our shame cripple us and our longings lay dormant. 


Any of these sound familiar?

  • I used to love to dance / paint / write / make music, but I stopped doing that so I could follow a “sensible” career.
  • Mothering consumes all my energy and attention - I don’t know who I am anymore
  • I’m so overwhelmed with all the to-do lists, my head feels like it might explode
  • I’ve got so much emotional baggage. Numbing out seems safer than feeling it all.
  • Pleasure? Isn’t that something I give to someone else?
  • I don’t feel at home in my body. It feels like more of an enemy than an ally.
  • I care so much and want to make change in the world - but where do I start?!
  • I’ve got big goals, but I can’t seem to get in flow and gain traction!

The fact that these kinds of thoughts plague so many talented and capable women, is disastrous.

Within Luminess,
we’re devoted to changing all this.

Here’s the exciting truth: 

You are your own perfect medicine. 

All you need is to surround yourself with the right people to hold and support you as you reignite your sensual and creative flame, and learn to harness your unique creative expression.

The result?

More pleasure, courageous creativity and greater prosperity into your mothering, leadership and life.


Through delicious monthly embodiment and somatic teachings, expressive processes, feminine ritual, and pleasure and devotion practices, this intimate, transformative container will support your body to settle, regulate and increase capacity for the leadership, relationships, mothering and career you desire.

The Luminess Activation

 When you say YES to embodying pleasureyou’re saying YES to your creative expression.

When you say YES to your alivenessyou’re saying YES to an unsMothered life.


Are we hitting the sweet spot, yet?


Luminess is not for everyone. We’re looking for a specific kind of woman… is it you?


The kind of Diamonds we’re looking for:

- You’re ready to get a creative vision / venture off the ground OR you want to deepen, ripen and expand a current venture

- You want to lead from a place of embodied centredness & wholeness, as opposed to conditioned perfectionism & over-functioning

- You’re interested in cultivating integrated roots as a feminine leader; valuing and tending to somatic attunement, critical thinking, spiritual resource and creative expression equally.

- You’re sure there must be “a better way” to negotiate your aspirations alongside motherhood, that doesn't involve burning out or compromising your values.

- You’re tired of rejecting and distrusting your body and feel ready to dismantle the internalised misogyny that has held you back from honouring your sensual self

- You care deeply about the empowerment of women and girls, trusting that when you heal your feminine wounds, the ripple effect is real

- You’re ready to invest in your potential to reap the rewards (and learn to be a responsible custodian of money in the process)

- You’re committed to being a good human to all humans. This means doing the necessary work towards social justice for all.

If that’s you - we’d be thrilled to have you!

Yes, that’s definitely me!

“But I’ve got no time! How can I possibly luxuriate in the slow-burn of my desires? I’m hustling like a mofo and although healing and flourishing *sound* great, I can’t imagine how prioritising pleasure, sensuality and creativity will actually change my life?!”



PSA:  this is what our patriarchal capitalist culture wants you to believe. It’s how society keeps you conforming to the status quo and staying sweet, small and obliging.

Unfortunately most of the systems and structures we have in place were never designed to help women thrive.

They were designed to keep us from knowing and expressing our whole, creative, multi-faceted selves.

And we simply cannot stand for it any longer.

Luminess was not only created to disrupt “the way it’s always been”, but to take deep, embodied ACTION towards dismantling it.

This is a place where myths are busted around what’s acceptable and attainable for women and mothers, and new possibilities are born.

Whatever is keeping you from stepping into your ultimate Creatress - whether it be fear of failure, lack of self-trust, a history of trauma and grief, lack of business knowledge, a limited network of support, or disconnection from your innately creative and sensual self… this experience has what you need to dramatically uplevel your life.

We are devoted to your blooming.

See all the benefits of joining

Depletion might be common, but it’s not “normal”.

The unsMothered framework that underpins the Luminess experience is designed to teach you powerful, sustainable ways to re-source your internal reserves, and therefore increase your capacity to hold more of the good stuff while you tend to the hard stuff that life can dish up.

Who’s leading this expedition?


Meet Kate Leiper; mother of 3 daughters and unsMothered work-in-progress (cos the Patriarchy just keeps on giving, amirite?)
