• 15 Soulful Women •
I'm Stephanie and I’m so glad you’re here.
I’m sure you know that you’re on the planet during this time for a reason...
You and I are here to be the way-showers of a new paradigm in which our fullest expression of womanhood impacts the change we wish to see in our lineage, and the world.
I’m here to help you become a more fully-expressed, soul-forward version of yourself.
Together, our work liberates you from trauma, past conditioning, old storylines, and everything the world tells you you “should” or “shouldn’t” be.
Through your Pure Aliveness journey, we will pave the way for you to become fully free - liberated from the past and ready to step into your fullest potential.
What makes Pure Aliveness unique?
In today's culture, there are increasing opportunities to work with sacred plant medicines for healing.
However, not all of these opportunities are created equal.
Here's what sets Pure Aliveness apart...
Pure Aliveness offers the intimacy of a small group container, three months of preparation and integration support, as well as the community support of other like-minded, soulful women.
This isn't just a week long retreat!
Pure Aliveness is a 3-month investment into your transformation with pre and post-retreat support. Deepen your connection to soulful community walking the same path as you and integrate all you learn and experience.
We are proud to provide a highly skilled, devoted team of women who deeply care and have decades of trauma-informed training in many areas including psychedelic preparation and integration.
Each guest has 1:1 face time with Stephanie and her team on retreat. This individual connection with each guest every day allows for personal processing and integration to help you get the most out of your experience.
HIGH TOUCH SUPPORT
Our intention is for you to focus on your healing. We take care of the logistical details so you don’t have to. We invite you to focus on yourself, your intentions and being present with the group as we tend to all of the planning and important info you’ll need to enjoy your experience.
If Plant Medicines have been calling you and you're ready to answer that call to embark on a truly Magical Adventure into yourself, this is it.
“Joining the Pure Aliveness Retreat 2022 is hands down the most impactful experience I've had in many years. The community and sacred space created for us by Stephanie and her team was unlike anything I've ever experienced and it allowed me to FINALLY heal the innermost part of my being and open the door to who I was truly created TO BE. I have an excitement and passion for life that I've never known before and everyone around me can see and feel the changes in my spirit. I am incredibly grateful for all the amazing women I met at Pure Aliveness and look forward to returning next year.”
We are proud to provide a highly skilled, devoted team of women who deeply care and have decades of trauma-informed training in many areas including somatic therapy, transformational breathwork, life coaching, psychedelic preparation and integration, and more.
Stephanie is a lifelong student of the plants and healing arts with certifications and trainings in somatic trauma resolution, herbalism, transformational life coaching, breathwork, reiki and plant medicines of the Andean tradition.
Her compassionate and loving guidance is often what clients say helps them to face childhood trauma, mother wounds, emotional pain, heartbreak, and grief with greater courage, self-love and acceptance. She will lovingly hold you to your highest and fullest expression with honesty, humility, humor and care.
Born and raised in the midwest, now based in Costa Rica, Nicole Rager has spent the last decade sharing breathwork with people all over the world.
She has a gift for creating safety and will support you in releasing old hurts and shame, integrating suppressions, repressions, and trauma, as well as in expanding spiritually. She’ll introduce you to (or remind you of!) the transformative power that lies within your own body, a tool you’ll be able to come back to time and time again!
Nai Kaya cosmotropes through the earthly realms with inspiration, dedication, training, and love from the Amazonian Shipibo tradition of medicinal plants through the Lopez/Mahua lineage. Her strongest connection and soulful songs hail from the sacred bioluminescent tree Noya Rao in the Amazon jungle.
Nai Kaya is a witness, a weaver, and an artist of sound and visuals. She is a certified sound healer and stitches sound and energy work into her meditations. Nai is trauma informed and holds a deep space for realignment to occur.
Casey Higgins-Johnson is a 200hr+ RYT certified yoga instructor, sound healer, and meditation guide from Charleston, SC. She is also certified in Thai yoga techniques by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.
Casey has been facilitating embodied movement for the women of Pure Aliveness Retreats since 2021.
Joining the team from Portland, Oregon, Patricia Troy is Stephanie's right-hand gal and behind-the-scenes guru, taking care of all things admin and organization for this program.
As a certified labor and postpartum doula, and a Wilderness First Responder, Patricia brings a little-bit of everything to this program, helping to make sure everyone has all their needs met before, during, and after the retreat.
With intimate guidance before and after the retreat, this is a truly transformational journey designed to support you and help you meet the experience fully.

“This experience has opened my eyes to so much beyond the typical answers to depression and anxiety. The tools and resources that were shared with me have given me hope that I have the power within myself to have the life I want. Stephanie creates a container that allows women to feel safe, seen, and loved.”
