Alexa Rosenthal is the co-founder or Rise Gatherings, a transformative summer camp experience for women. After living in a 1979 RV named Moby with the Be You Be Sure Project, she learned the value of self-development, which drove her to create a transformational experience like Rise Gathering. Designed to promote personal growth, enhance overall well-being, and inspire collective connection Rise Gathering is curated to meet women wherever they are in their life path. Alexa combines her passion for self-inquiry, storytelling (she's the women who brands all the goodness that is Rise Gathering) and community to help empower others to live out their biggest dreams (including herself!).
What rocks your bliss?
Self-inquiry. I feel like we can never truly feel a sense of freedom if we don't take the time to look deep into the heart of who we are and what we care about. I think the golden nuggets to our deepest yearnings are lying deep within us.
Describe your perfect day.
Waking up in the early morning with someone I deeply love. Meditating. Stretching. Pulling a tarot card. Eating a light breakfast. Doing some sort of movement class with others. Creating with others. Eating a high vibe lunch. Going on an adventure. And then sharing dinner with one or more people I truly love. Then more play. Yum. It feels so good to even write that down.
When do you feel most creative and alive?
I feel most alive in nature. Totally immersed. In nature I am reminded of how incredible it is to even be breathing. It sort of knocks me right out of my mind and straight into my heart. And laughing. There's really nothing like laughing with people you love in NATURE. Goodness. Can you feel it?!
Share a huge goal you are rocking.
To have the book (I'm three months away from completion), about the time I drove a 1979 RV across the country and interviewed 250 Millennials about purpose, be sold at Urban Outfitters. And then present assembly's at go high-schools to encourage self-exploration.
If you could get on a plane right now, where are you going?
No where. I'm exactly where I'm suppose to be. Rise Gathering 2017 is just 5 weeks away - it's focus time! But if time wasn't a thing, then I would go take someone I love to Bali.
How do you handle setbacks?
I reflect, integrate and keep moving forward. And definitely lean on friends and exercise.
How do you come home to yourself?
I meditate. Meditation has been the biggest help in even teaching me what home means.
What are 3 ways you rock the self LOVE?
1. Talk kindly to myself
2. Eat High Vibe foods for my body
