CONNECTION TO NATURE. CONSCIOUSNESS. SOCIAL CHANGE.
THROUGH AWARENESS, WE EVOLVE.
Advaya Initiative is an environmental and holistic wellbeing platform created by Ruby Reed and Christabel Reed, two sisters, activists and yoga teachers who see the ecological, social, political and personal crises of civilization as interconnected and as an opportunity to evolve, to come together and co-create.
Advaya seeks to inspire activism and healing in our relationships with ourselves and the natural world through editorial, video and events based content seeking to inspire, empower and educate. Advaya is bringing together an ever-increasing community of people who care with groundbreaking speakers, thinkers and writers, as well as the world’s best healers and teachers, to embark on full day immersions of workshops and talks, retreats, screenings, supper clubs, panel discussions, pilgrimages, parties and gatherings.
While never undermining the severity of the crises that surround us, Advaya seeks to celebrate life, to ignite awe and wonder at the world around us, to reconnect and fall in love again with our precious planet. Only a society that has forgotten their intimate connection to nature, that has fallen out of love with the world, and has forgotten the power it has as a collective, can continue to stand by and watch as our environment is destroyed and life diminished.
Advaya delves into the practices of activism, rewilding, spiritual ecology, nature connection, cycle alignment, mythology and storytelling, using these as frameworks to explore environmental topics including conservation, consumption, plastic, ecofeminism, food and farming, alternative economies, climate change, ecocide and human rights.
Advaya wants to strip back the layers that prevent us from living our most authentic, wild, natural and connected lives, and thriving as we naturally should be in harmony with nature.
