Tap into the wellspring of feminine energy that exists inside your body
I help women to live a life that is fun, flirty, and fulfilling as well as powerful and productive.
As women, we hold a powerful reservoir of energy and potency within our bodies, and that energy doesn’t go away as we age. It pools. And if we let it, it can overflow in delicious ways.
I’m Dr. Rima Bonario, author, workshop leader, soul coach and wild heart healer. My doctorate is in Transformational Psychology (Th.D.) and I’ve been working in personal development for close to 20 years. In the last five years, I’ve been concentrating on working with women in mid-life - primarily because I’m a woman in mid-life!
Like many "women of a certain age," I hit a point in my life when the old nose-to-the-grindstone way of pushing through and postponing my self-care was no longer an option. My body, heart, and soul rebelled. No mater how hard my mind tried to get me to work on my to-do's, I just couldn't. Everything in me was demanding a new way forward. I was lucky enough to find it before I did irreparable damage to my relationship and my business.
Are you facing a similar rebellion of body, heart, and soul? If so, I may have a few answers for you.
In a nutshell, I can help you learn to
Here's what I know: You can be flawed and loved at the same time.
For years and years I functioned under the crushing weight of having to live the life of "The Good Girl." Somehow, somewhere along the way, I came to believe that my mistakes, my flaws, my short comings were not welcome and showing my imperfection to others was unsafe. Of course, I still had my flaws and made mistakes, but this persona's job was to go to great pains to hide them from myself and others.
When I was triggered, in pain or scared, this carefully crafted self would spring into action. Its way of helping me settle was to do all it could to present itself in the best possible light always. Even if that meant spinning the truth in the most favorable way possible (or said another way: Lying to save face). I became aware of this tendency about 18 years ago when studying the DISC assessment. DISC is a behavior assessment tool based on the DISC theory of psychologist William Moulton Marston, which centers on four different personality traits which are currently Dominance (D), Influence (I), Steadiness (S), and Conscientiousness (C). I am what's called a HIGH "I" - almost off the chart for "i-ness" and one of the challenges of this type is wanting and needing the good opinion of others. That has undermined my ability to take a stand for myself if I ever perceived (correctly or incorrectly) that my needs, wants, or desires would compromise my place in the good graces of others.
Fortunately, like most of us on the spiritual path I have developed skills to help me stay out of these negative behavior patterns most of the time, but even the most evolved person may still find themselves triggered from time to time. It's in those moments of fear and doubt that the shadow structures that survived us as children show themselves. While it may be painful, it is also precious because it opens the door for healing. Stepping through that door requires courage and strength. Confronting the scared, conditioned, misshapen parts of ourselves that hide out in the dark is not for sissies. But it is absolutely worth the effort.

How we can work together...
I'm delighted to invite you into my world of magic, mischief, and transformation! Nothing gives me more pleasure than supporting women in finding their inner guidance and feeling free enough to act on it. Working with the Divine Feminine and her various archetypes have been a catalyst for so many women on this path of awakening as they define the Essence of who they are and create a life equal to their heart's imagining.

It's Your Time. It's Your Turn.
WILD + WOMAN = MAGIC
We wild women know we are not perfect. And we don’t mind.
We own our magnificence, but are not fooled.
We acknowledge our shadows, but are not controlled by them.
I use a variety of tools including coaching and counseling techniques, as well as more potent processes that include elements of myth and archetypes, ritual and ceremony, Soul/shadow work, energy work and tantric healing to help women weave their inner truths into their outer realities.
I am a Dream Weaver, and I would be honored to help you
weave your dreams into reality.
Because if you don't, no one else will.
