“I'd like for people to see the importance of things that took time to create. Sometimes pieces can seem hollow. They're made so quickly, thrown away so quickly. Everything so instant and disposable. Mass production just takes away the story a piece can have, and it is beautiful to be surrounded by things that have a story behind them, that literally took years, decades to develop.”

“Inner wellness is always my message and always the intention behind everything I do. It has always been the intention behind what I created as a jewellery artisan and it is the intention behind the expansion in my career choices too. I want only to assist other people to feel more comfortable on their journey through life (which is not to say life is easy or that it is always rainbows and sunshine.) ”

Padmini Yoni

“The intention behind Padmini Yoni is one of deep feminine embodiment. It is my desire to create a beautiful, sacred and safe space for women to fully own and inhibit ALL that they are, all that it means to be a woman. To feel the depths of their pain, their sorrow, their joy, their pleasure and use these emotions as fuel for life. It is also my desire to be an embodiment of integrated sexuality and feminine radiance and show others how our sexual life force energy is (I believe) the most powerful tool on this planet for transformation, healing and manifestation!'“

“One of the main messages I guess that seems to stream throughout my words, is for people to really drop into themselves and live a life based from their heart. This in a way is cliche across many things. But I feel cliche things are often 'cliche' because they are said or expressed by so many people and this in itself shows that it has a truthful aspect behind it. As well as the simple practise of celebrating exactly who you are, in all your so called flaws and imperfections, that only you yourself can have. I always find it quite fascinating how in a population of over 7 billion people, you are 1 of these. Yet, we so often try and mould ourselves to be look like someone else. We have become separated across so many aspects of our being because of conditioning and society when behind the veils we all have a heart that beats, and we all equally have the honour of being apart of creation and so I can only hope that across my three books this instills a bit that understanding with those who read them.”

Le Harvest

“I wish to express my lifestyle values through the brand. Values that imbue simplicity, slow mindful living and essentially a minimalist approach to living. I really subscribe to the idea of less being more. Only buying what you truly love. Treading lightly on this planet. ”

“My intention is to reach as many people as possible with my messages around sexual empowerment and freedom. My message is simple - sex is normal and natural and a beautiful and integral part of life as a whole. It's okay to want to enjoy heaps of great sex. It's okay to yearn for connection and intimacy with others. There's no better time than now to explore our sexuality with open hearts and open minds!”

Herb & Lunar Botanics

“That every day is a self care ritual. When you have a shower and what you put on or in your body is a ritual. Maybe we've forgotten the sacredness to it all because a lot of the stuff we include in our self care isn't made with the nicest most healing things. Time and effort have been made with the products at H&LB, intentions, love and all hand made.“

Shackpalace Rituals

“We want to contribute to the creation of a world where we are all empowered as individuals. There is a disturbing trend in today’s society where large corporations, including government are increasingly creating systems that enslave & control us, resulting in a population of disempowered, stressed and often unwell people.  We want to encourage an ongoing commitment to self experimentation and growth. To heal the world, we must first free ourselves.”
