What if your entire life was a perfect reflection of your soul’s essence?

WELCOME TO THE 

SCHOOL OF LIVING LIGHT

The deepest tragedy ...

... for a woman is not that she is single or that she is not making money, or that she is alone.

 

The deepest tragedy for a woman is that she has lost faith in flow.

 

When she is in her flow, she is resting in her core. Her essence. 

 

Life feels like a river.

 

She still has her challenges but she flows around them like water does around rocks and fallen branches.

 

She knows her way, naturally.

 

And she’s certain that no matter what happens, she is heading towards the sea.

 

Without her flow, she is like a compass without the needle pointing north.

 

As a result, she starts thinking too hard.

 

Carrying the world on her shoulders.

 

Trying to figure it all out alone.

 

Over-working.

 

Aching.

 

She thinks the pain is a result of being single. Or not having what she needs in an existing relationship. Or not making enough money. Or not having this or that. 

 

So she starts looking for “the one”. Working harder. Purchasing stuff to fill the void.
 

A woman who has lost her flow will almost always attract a man who is going through a “mid-life crisis” where everything feels like too much, including her.

 

A woman who has lost her flow and

a man who thinks that only in solitude he is free

are not a good match.

 

This is why a good relationship starts way before you meet each other.
 

A woman who has lost touch with her essence will almost always choose a job that eventually leads to burn-out.

 

A woman who has lost her flow will almost always have a home that feels neglected, with no fresh chi but piles and piles of unsorted things begging for her attention.

 

It is only when she decides to return back to her core that she remembers her radiance, her worth and her strength. 

 

But the choice is hers. 

 

No-one can make that for her.

 

And no-one ever should.

 

This is HER life. 

 

The only life she can ever change. 

 

What would YOU do if you were her?

WHAT IF YOU COULD ...

  • Live a life totally aligned with your essence

  • Do work that aligned with your destiny

  • Be in a wonderful relationship with someone who helps you raise – not fall – in love

  • Do all this while living in a home that was a tangible expression of your soul.

What would become possible for you if you fully owned your unique brilliance? If you weren't after "the perfect life" but a life that was perfect for you, for your essence? 

HAVE YOU
TRIED TO

  • Create a business that is in alignment with your values, yet you feel burned-out, distracted, and empty – but you continue to overwork or shop, eat, drink and [fill in the blank] to fill that void?

 

  • Put yourself in the center of your own life and still find yourself feeling like an outsider?

 

  • Trust love again only to find yourself heartbroken and betrayed?

 

  • Let go of stuff but decided to save it for “the rainy days”?

 

  • Eat the right wholesome foods but instead you go for the quick and easy?

 

  • Slow down but you fear getting behind your to-do-list?

I'M GOING TO TELL YOU A SECRET ...

Your life is waiting for you on the other side of “shoulds”.

Your business is waiting for you on the other side of “not enough”.

Your love is waiting for you on the other side “playing it safe”.

Your liberation is waiting for you on the other side of “I can’t”.

YOUR ESSENCE IS YOUR TRUE NORTH.

The reason you feel stuck is not because something is wrong with you. The reason you feel stuck is similar to why your bathtub backs up with water, stagnates and grows bacteria and mold – it’s not because something is wrong with the bathtub itself. It’s because there is too much hair in the drain and the hair has created a blockage. Similarly your energy field gets blocked with negative childhood memories, resentment, beliefs and emotions. This will keep you stuck in a behavior and thought pattern that is restricting your ability to run a business and live a life you truly want. The good news is at its core, each pattern has a simple beginning. There’s no point trying to heal without first going into the root. And this is what the School of Living Light is all about. 

Simplicity

Distillation

Alignment

I created The School of Living Light around the following three pillars: Spirit. Space. Self.

It's a sacred chamber where women come together to uncover their essence and build their entire life around it. 

SPIRIT

Your True North is your inner sense (or essence / innocence), a place that your internal guidance system is always pointing to. You get there by listening to the voice of Spirit – your Intuition. You’ll learn non-dogmatic and practical tools on how to better hear the little voice inside that is always right. Not sometimes, but always right. You establish a daily spiritual practice that feels right for you. Your daily sitting or movement practice is something you learn to look forward to. In the School of Living Light, you are not a body trying to get more spiritual. You are here to experience yourself as who you truly are, a Spirit in a body, co-creating your life. 

SPACE

You learn how to use your environment as your vision board – anything unresolved within you shows up somewhere in your home, usually closets. Confronting these areas will help you activate your dream space – and your dream life.

SELF

Your mindset. Beliefs. How to go beyond your upper limits. You learn to take care of your physical body, eat the right foods and practice self-care the way that does not feel like another “should” but joy. You hold yourself with uttermost respect and reverence. Commitment no longer feels like a prison, or a restriction, but a welcomed boundary that provides a playground for your dreams.

MY STORY

A one-way ticket is not always the way to change your life but it was mine. 

When I left my home country of Finland in 2001 and moved to New York City with only one luggage, a tourist visa, $600 to my name, no home and no job in sight, I thought I was living lightly. 

I soon realized that although I didn’t have many material possessions, my load was heavy.  

I kept looking for men, money, God and happiness in all the wrong places. I got in trouble. I didn’t think my master's degrees and certifications were enough to get the job I wanted so I started working as a stripper in a gentlemen’s club. 

I learned a lot.

It took me many years to unpack my emotions and beliefs about myself and the world. I dove deeply into personal development work. I stayed in temples and visited ashrams. I realized I could get lost in that, too. But I had amazing teachers along the way and for that I’m forever grateful. 

I learned how easy it is to leave myself, thinking the answers to my burning questions are out there.

I learned how easy it is to check out, leave the space and run away from pain, discomfort and shame.

I learned how easy it is to turn away from Spirit, and ignore the only voice that truly matters: my intuition. 

 

I started slowly gathering my power back from where I had left it – from people, places and things.

I started integrating my inner and outer worlds. 

I started creating a business that fit my essence, and I stopped trying to make my essence fit my business.

I allowed myself to do nothing. 

 

And let me tell you, that changed everything. 

And I’m here to share these teachings with you.

IMAGINE

THE DAY

WHEN YOU

 

  • No longer create your business and relationship on the sand of inauthenticity and self-sabotage, but on the mountain of your own true being. 

  • No longer end up spending your precious money and time on things that are just a cover up. 

  • Finally accept the fact that you always had everything it takes.

  • Create a sixth sense for things that feel off.

  • No longer be seduced, but guided.

  • No longer feel the hole, but the wholeness of you.

  • No longer be living a lie, but a life.

But first we just need to dissolve the thing that is blocking you, the place where you still, after years and years of personal and professional work, doubt yourself.

This won’t happen overnight, although it could.

You will not only step into the river of your own life, but you become the river.

 

You are finally free.

You are finally here.

 

From no-where to now-here.

 

Come with me ...

SCHOOL OF LIVING LIGHT

 

This is the scene in your movie where everything is about to change. The catalyst.

All the eyes are on you. You understand that life as you know it can not continue as it is. 

The future has not been shown to you yet.

It’s time to move the story forward.

You are required to simply

TRUST.

SAY YES.

JUMP.

In the School of Living Light you will:

 

  • UNDERSTAND THE DEEPER MEANING OF CLUTTER (IN ALL ITS MYRIAD FORMS), AND HOW YOUR PERSONAL VERSION OF CLUTTER COULD BE STOPPING YOU FROM LIVING THE LIFE YOU KNOW YOU WANT.

  • RAISE YOUR AWARENESS AND GAIN A NEW LEVEL OF INSIGHT ABOUT YOURSELF, YOUR ESSENCE AND YOUR INNATE GIFTS.

 

  • ​​SEE THE POTENTIAL YOUR LIVING SPACE HOLDS FOR ACTIVATING YOUR LIFE, LOVE AND WORK.

  • ACTIVATE YOURSELF AS A POWERHOUSE FOR CHANGE, AND RISE ABOVE THE STORIES YOU HAVE BEEN TELLING YOURSELF.

 

  • CREATE AN ATTITUDE SHIFT THAT ELIMINATES ALL RESISTANCE. 

 

  • ​HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO STUFF THROUGH STORYTELLING. WHAT DOES YOUR CLUTTER REPRESENT?

 

  • JOIN A COMMUNITY WHERE YOU CAN BE FULLY YOURSELF AND WITNESS OTHERS WHO ARE EQUALLY COMMITTED TO CHANGING THE ONLY LIFE WE CAN CHANGE – OUR OWN.

We use the Clutter Wheel™️ to diagnose which one of the ten areas of your life are the most cluttered. That’s where we start.

Each class, exercise and assignment is designed to help you distill and get closer to your essence.

 

This essence will become the cornerstone of your business, the heart of your relationships and the joy of your home.

Full Moon

It is the agreement
your soul made
before coming here.

EACH TIME WE COME TOGETHER TO LIGHTEN THE LOAD AND DISCOVER OUR WINGS.

We have one main goal: To remember who you are.

 

When you do business, love and life from that place, you can not fail. You are living your purpose – the reason why you came here. 

 

Your essence is your bigger why.

A sweet reminder ….

Living Light is not about NOT owning comfortable and beautiful things. Living Light does not mean we take life lightly. It means we carry only what is ours, only what moves us forward and what aligns with our essence – in all areas of our lives. 
It’s about right ownership.

When we live lightly, we do not possess the Earth, we walk lightly upon Her. We are guests here.

THE SCHOOL OF LIVING LIGHT LASTS FOR 5 MONTHS BUT THE RESULTS LAST FOR A LIFETIME.

This is what is included each month:

In the beginning of each month, you will receive a new module that introduces that month's topic.

This is where you get to bring your real life joys and challenges on the call and get coached. You'll have me on your side as you grow your business, navigate the dating world and upgrade your home space. 

 

MONTHLY CHALLENGE:

 

The monthly challenges are designed so that you can go past your limitations and create new habits that are life and energy giving.

 

FOR THOSE WHO JOIN THE LIVING LIGHT CIRCLE this is also what’s included:

 

  • ONE IN-PERSON RETREAT ON SUMMER OR WINTER SOLSTICE. (LOCATION: A HOT SPRING IN CALIFORNIA – travel expenses NOT included) 

 

  • DAILY GUIDED MEDITATION AUDIO VIA VOXER (MON-FRI)

 

Each weekday you receive a voice message from Riikka that gently reminds you to take 5-10 minutes out of your day to get centered, clear and connected. 

I believe you should be able to run a successful business, have healthy love and a joyful, beautiful home without compromising your true essence.

The School of Living Light Is For

Woman Painting Pottery

THE WOMAN

who wants to bring ALL of her into EVERYTHING she does. She is hungry for authenticity. She’s simply done with roles and protocols. 

 

She’s unedited yet refined. 

Bold yet  

subtle. 

Fierce yet loving.

Hands Holding Beads

THE WOMAN

who wants to fall madly in love with the holiness of herself. She knows that’s the only way to ever fall in love with the holiness of another. She’s not seeking her other half. She’s here to find her “other whole.”

Meditating on Beach

THE WOMAN

who is ready to slow down to achieve more.

Seashell

THE WOMAN

who knows she's not fully free until she knows the answer to the question:

 

"Why Am I Here?" 

The question is, how do you want to feel day-to–day, moment-to-moment? Stuck with a feeling that something is missing? I don't think so – you're here to channel your ESSENCE and POWER to the masses, am I right?
