Dominique is an Awakening Women Temple Training Teacher. She fell head-over-heels in love with Awakening Women and the Yogini Circle in 2011 and has since given her life to this wild path of feminine embodiment. She has spent the last 6 years traveling and apprenticing with Chameli, the founder of Awakening Women, attending and assisting in most trainings and retreats, deepening her practice as a yogini committed to awakening.
Dominique works as part of the AWI team. She has held her own Women’s Temple Groups in Sebastopol, California for 1 year and in Berkeley, California for 5 years. For several years, she has been initiating new women into the Nevada City Women’s Temple group, the first Temple group started by Chameli Ardagh and Helena Montelius.
She spends her time between Northern California, India, and Basque Country in the North of Spain, exploring her endless curiosity for what it means to be an embodied, truth-devoted woman on the earth at this time. She has founded and teaches her own work of Self-Marriage Ceremonies for women, a pathway of committing to what matters most and honoring the wholeness of our hearts.
“Dominique is a radiant star. Her warm heart shines in all directions, she has the ability to let love flow through… and it hits you like a wave of grace filled with curiosity, honesty, power, humor and innocence. She is a poetess of truth and her abundant creativity inspires me to dive deeper into the devotional aspect of feminine essence. This amazing young woman has wisdom and experience to share, to be in her presence is a true gift of life.”
