About the event

RISE is a sacred container to guide your way forward in leading radical, loving change in our world. Our gatherings connect you with: your inner wisdom + feminine power, metaphysical + practical planning tools, and community to support + elevate your vision.

Your hosts, Gina Marotta & Amy Galvin, are at the forefront of this work and are hosting four seasonal retreats this year to elevate and connect the women of Chicago. For the Spring event, a key outcome is to help you create goals and a planning system for the Spring season (and beyond).

RISE isn't a conventional planning session ~  it’s about attuning to your sacred feminine nature so that you can lead with your genius, creative power, and create a work and life flow that matches your cycles and the seasons.


As a RISE attendee, you’ll move through a mix of mystical and practical content based in ancient feminine wisdom that is reshaped to support you in modern times for:

  • Tapping into your intuition and trusting it (because your wisdom is so much more accurate than logic and data!)
  • Releasing limiting thought and behavior patterns (so that you can embody your highest potential as a feminine leader for change!)
  • Shaping your work around your genius (the most fun, easy, and effective way you’re meant to serve the world!)
  • Employing mystical feminine practices for more natural, aligned work flow (such as channeling, downloading, holding space, creating containers, and offering rituals).
  • Applying metaphysical + practical practices and planning tools that turn your visions into reality (with less force, more flow!), and
  • Attuning to the mystical power of Oneness, your power to help shape the world by shaping your own intentions and aims (this is why your vibe matters!).


This gathering is intended to cultivate a community of:

  • Leaders creating positive change through professional endeavors
  • Women wanting to deepen in feminine wisdom at work
  • Women wanting to expand their creative power
  • Spiritual women expanding in consciousness
  • Women committed to the inner work required for change
  • Entrepreneurs, creatives, healers, and leaders of the new age

Warning: Side Effects! Attending this event and being in such a community will reduce hiding, playing small, boredom, and burnout. You may also experience knowing more clearly who you are and what you’re meant to do, and as a result, your work will be more impactful than ever.


Part of the magic of this container is you get to be in your feminine energy to RECEIVE so much to nourish your body, mind and soul, including:

  • A Sacred & Safe Space for learning, being yourself, authentically connecting with others, and setting the foundation for the season ahead.
  • A Sound Healing Experience to help you release old patterns, to integrate wisdom from the event, and to connect with your soul’s wisdom.
  • A Curriculum and Tools to help you connect with your genius, intuition, and feminine leadership codes.
  • A Guided Process to set your goals for the Spring season in ways that feel fun, enlivening, and on purpose.
  • A Nourishing Lunch & Refreshments throughout the day to fuel your journey, including our special “anti-patriarchy juice.”
  • A Gift Bag to connect you with heart-centered, women-forward businesses curated for feminine leaders.

In addition, you're supported before and after the event with:

  • Pre-event access to our Liberation Library: a compilation of books and other resources you can choose from to prime you for the retreat and support you afterward.
  • A post-retreat gathering: RISE Roundtable via Zoom on Thur April 25, 2024, from 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM CST. The intention of this second gathering is to give you a date by which to complete your planning process (accountability) and also to be in community sharing your progress and witnessing the progress of other women of the community. Sisterhood expands our reach!!!
