My experience was just phenomenal. I loved every minute of it. The way it resonated with me on a deep, soul level was incredible. It felt really empowering to hear how Liv saw me. I connected with wisdom aligned with my heart purpose, how I can show up in the world in a true and authentic way. I highly, highly recommend these soul-connected, awakening experiences, just to play, get curious, and see what she has to offer.Jo Gillard

The Juicy Stuff
As proud as I am of my creations and accomplishments, I’d much rather talk to you about other aspects of myself. The things that really make me tick, that get me excited about you and us and what we’re up to in the world. So, if you’re interested in that part, keep reading.
I am evolving.
For seven years now, I’ve been on a journey of self-awareness and spiritual development. What does that mean? It means I’ve been obsessing over who I am, what I’m here to do in the world, and how to move the shit in my way to the side of the road.
It’s been a fucking wild ride.
I can’t tell you the exact moment I knew pursuing self-awareness was the best tool for me to experience joy and authenticity. Probably because there wasn’t just one moment; there have been many over time, the sum of which accumulates to me being here now, doing what I’m doing.
Now, I’m not so obsessed with my own journey. I’m far more interested in yours.
I have always been a service-oriented person. It feels important to me to add value to the places I visit, the people I meet, the situations I find myself in. For a long time, I was trying so hard to do that without taking care of myself. Without being purposeful and mindful of how I was showing up and the impact I was actually having on people.
For a long time, I was in a rush to just be me.
Luckily, through everything I’ve learned in the past decade, I recognize that I’ve already arrived. I’ve always been here. I just couldn’t feel myself. That’s what living in this world does to us — it convinces us to disconnect. To find validation and seek permission from others. That need to be acknowledged and made whole by external factors was (and sometimes still is) a huge obstacle.
I don’t want that for you.
I want you to realize all the power you have within you. I want you to remember that you are all the things you crave. You are joy. You are love. You are whole. You are enough. I’m here to help you remember that!
I am a guide.
I have always cared about words. As I’m sure many of you can relate to, my childhood was riddled with untruths and haphazardly spoken promises. Even I experimented with lying for a while. Turns out, it’s not a great way to live. So, instead, I became a curator of carefully selected words. Don’t get me wrong — I’ve said my fair share of careless things. The more I practice intentional verbiage, the better I get. Which is why it’s important to me that you don’t think of me as a coach or guru or teacher.
Those words don’t match what I’m up to.
My focus is on creating possibility. It’s on waking up, opening doors, and creating space. It’s about holding up a mirror to myself, you, and the rest of the world. I’m asking tough questions, digging into dark corners, confronting tradition, and getting curious. I’m cultivating community. Making space at the table for everyone denied entry for arbitrary reasons.
I want to show you all the power and strength you already have.
To me, being a guide means shining a light on possibilities and perspectives you may not have noticed before. It’s about showing the way. Why split hairs on word choice? Because the coaching dynamic already has a power structure attached to it that doesn’t feel right for my work at this point. The term guru just gives me all the
Don’t get me wrong, I think teachers and coaches are wonderful.
I’ve had many and will probably always have at least one. They’re so important and helpful. And yes, they help you uncover your talents and harness your strengths. They also hold your hand and lead you to the water.
I’m showing you the water and inviting you to take the first step.
I’m not holding your hand. I’m not telling you how to get there. Only showing you it’s there. That it’s an opportunity for you to seize or not. If you take that step, I’ll take it with you. If you don’t, neither will I. If I were a coach, I’d take the step first and coax you along. I’d show you the how then let you know how well you did getting there. Sometimes, you’re gonna need that. I’m not the person for that. I’m here when you need expansion. When you’re looking to take up more space and want to DIY. For those times clarity only feels possible if you go deep inside yourself.
I’ll be here, shining my light bright, so you can shine yours.
