Why gypsies and pirates you may be asking. And what do they have in common?
Well, we pretty much LOVE the idea of being OUTLAWS.
Trish is descended from the very legendary, renowned Pirate Queen, Grace O’Malley and she has a pirate soul. Elizabeth, although not a blood gypsy, has a gypsy soul. She took her 1st journey across the ocean on a big ship at the age of 6 months and spent the 1st 25 years of her life, traveling the world and living in different cultures and countries. AND when we were conjuring up some new creative adventures and ways to play with our beloved soul sisters, we realized that………….we share many of the gypsy and pirate ways and we live our lives according to the following “sacred rebel manifesta”:
We believe in our right to live as creative, inspired revolutionaries.
We like to live from our creative edge (call us “fringe dwellers” if you like…..we are proud to let our weird flags fly. Did you know that the definition of weird is “supernatural”? Yep we’ve definitely got magical superpowers)
We are power creatives who make up our own rules.
We are story-tellers and when we don’t like the story that we are telling about our lives, we use magical transformational tools (like paint brushes, paint, sisterhood, red thread, glitter and more) to shift the stories.
We create and live by a soul-based honor code that is uniquely ours.
We live authentically and fully expressed as our most juicy, passionate selves.
Our honor code respects all beings, the earth, all creatures and all spiritual traditions. That being said, we are also warriors of the light and we are willing to fight against injustice when we encounter it.
We love tattoos, badass mystics, booty and bangles.We unapologetically claim our right to be sovereign Queens of our own lives.
We do not deny or repress our true emotions. We honor our “shadow” side and choose to be as conscious as possible. We find creative ways to release and shift stories and energies that are leaving us shipwrecked. ( We embrace being shipwrecked from time to time so we can live in our “paradise lost” on a tropical island.)
We passionately love our “clan”, our “crew”, and our “tribe”, and we gather regularly to enjoy magical ceremonies and to journey on Grand Adventures into uncharted territories.
We are skilled healers and we guide others to ignite their inner healing magical powers.
We love to play and have fierce fun and although we acknowledge the “tough times”, we choose to live by the code that “hard times” require furious dancing. When our sisters feel like they may be falling from the “Cliffs of Despair”, we catch them and twirl them across the dance floor until they are filled with heart-stomping sass again.
If any of this sounds like the way you have been longing to lead your life and yet you don’t quite know how to get to your “lost paradise”, join us for this super, juicy, magical and transformational playshop!!! We will be sharing fun, playful and powerful tools and processes of transformation to shift stuck energies! Go back to the Classes and Events Page and claim your Sovereign Queen’s place in our royal circle!!

Do you feel as if there is a slumbering WILD WOMAN inside you that is longing to be unleashed and freed?
Do you feel blocked and stuck in areas of your life and have no idea how to shift this?
Do you long to take a powerful stand as the Queen in charge of her own life?
Does your soul need the nurturing and support of a circle of like minded soul sisters?
Do you often wonder what it feels like to feel truly free?
Do you find yourself saying yes when you really mean no?
Do you keep promising yourself to give yourself time to nurture your creativity once you have…………..completed the next 10 things on your to do list; have more money to spend on it; are retired; have more free time? Do you keep wearing out your body and soul with obligations and responsibilities that drain you, yet you don’t feel that you have the time to give to fun, creativity, your soul, your desires?
Well guess what? Nothing is going to shift until you actually take a stand and give yourself time for RECESS now! Taking time our for soul-nurturing intentional creativity, deep connection and play will actually help you to fly through those to do lists (or you may actually end up burning them up in a studio ceremony- one of my favorite things to DO when I am feeling feisty) and will support you in creating life that is more juicy and is in alignment with your sacred purpose. Do you desire an existence that is filled with more ease, grace and flow (and yes dancing and sisterhood!)

HOW DOES TRANSFORMATION ACTUALLY HAPPEN?
The 1st step is to become conscious of what is not working in your life. We call this identifying the “sorry story” or the “pity pot” stage (some call it the dark night of the soul if you want a more elegant title for this). The 2nd step is to take a radical stand and declare your intention to change the story.
The truth is that the pity pot stage can be painful and scary. Sometimes it just feels easier to not “rock the boat”. To live in denial and to pretend that things are ok not being really the way you desire. Still, being stuck, pretty much sucks. We acknowledge that we don’t really like facing our “pity pots” unless we can find a way to make it fun. So that is what we did. We made some crazy, fun videos about how we moved out of our sorry stories into places of empowerment and sovereignty. How we activated our fierce feminine selves. We “specialize” in playful and irreverent ways to move stuck energy, explore and shift sorry stories and at the same time, do it all within a sacred container of respect, love and support. We welcome the holy water of your soul (tears) as well as the laughter. We invite you to take a courageous stand NOW and we will support you in becoming the Sovereign Queen of your own life and the most badass version of you, that you can be.
Come watch Video#2 as we continue to share the journey of our GRAND ADVENTURE. In this video we share about our “magical tools of transformation”! Coming soon…more videos featuring the Gypsy and Pirate Queens!!
(We are currently off in the world on separate adventures sparked by the idea of creating this playshop! Elizabeth, a.k.a. Gypsy Queen Lolita Lani Lilikoi is on a tropical island, frolicking with creatures from the Mermaid Realm and riding the waves of her desires in the Great Mother Ocean. Trish, Pirate Queen, is currently reigning Royal Queen at the Palace of the Soul, the jewel by the sea in San Francisco, great city of rainbows. Radical shifts are already taking place in their lives and in the quantum field, dreams are being fueled with sisterhood, paint, ceremony, glitter and shark’s teeth. Booty and bangles are flying through the cosmic field at a speed greater than light, creating magical prisms and forging new realities! Soon Video # 3PQ and Video #3GQ will be released with more about our adventures before we come back together to create Video #4 our invitation to embark upon your own GRAND ADVENTURE!)
Elizabeth Gibbons is not only an amazing artist, she is also a masterful teacher and art program facilitator. She is prepared and professional and a joy to work with. She presented at our retreat for women in business. The participants loved her program, they got so much value from her creative instruction. They were all inspired and uplifted from the experience. We will have her back every single time.

I recently had the immense privilege of working one-on-one with Elizabeth Gibbons in her studio. To say it was a blessing and a gift are understatements. Elizabeth met me right where I am creatively with regard to painting, which in all candor is at the crossroads of fear and skepticism. The creativity that I have always embraced and claimed is my writing — in many ways a shield that prevents me from exploring other artistic media. In a very caring, and non-threatening way, Elizabeth allowed me to “lower my shield” and begin to feel what it is like to paint with confidence…and thoroughly enjoy it. True to form, I began my painting foray with difficult subject matter and scale. Elizabeth was undaunted, and therefore so was I! She listened and observed, all the while putting me at ease and making it all feel very EASY. Elizabeth made the process feel fun, not like hard work. And how could it be anything but fun? The environment in Elizabeth’s studio at the Palace of the Soul is mesmerizing. If someone were to plan a party for creativity, where all the creative elements would come together to celebrate their greatness, the party would be thrown in Elizabeth’s studio! Give yourself the gift that combines personal exploration, whimsy, and learning…call Elizabeth and schedule a one-to-one session with her. You and your creative force deserve it!
