Writing, Books and Authors

The True Sexy – Where Human Meets Divine
Over time, Rory has evolved into a spiritual teacher and guide through years of study, personal growth and diving deep into the healing work of evolution with her clients. As an intuitive and an empath, she brings a unique and provocative insight to unspin all that isn’t love so we can move into love, rise to love, and stay in love.
Rory teaches workshops and works one-on-one with clients to teach them how to become fully integrated human beings aligned at the intersection of their unique human divine, what Rory calls the “true sexy.” In alignment with love, we bring our minds, hearts, bodies and Souls into harmony, balancing the masculine and feminine energies within each one of us and our relationships at home, work and in the world. This consummation of masculine and feminine energies within the paradigm of love is sexy, creating the perfect channel for the flow of the Divine through us, as us, to us and for us, birthing Heaven on Earth. Rory knows that there is nothing sexier (confident, beautiful, powerful, exciting, stimulating and orgasmic…) than being connected through love to ourselves, each other and God (Source) and “making love” in all we are and do. As above, so below.
