welcome to {within}

wild exploration, brave creativity, sacred connection: studio visits, art workshops, writing & more

welcome

we are alana and daphne. together, we hold space for the community of {within}. 

daphne founded this community.

she is the host of the BEYOND podcast: for those who have found the courage to go beyond the norm and create the new.

she is a writer, kindrêd facilitator and wild explorer. creator of illumine creativity hour and emerge writing experiences. she is a devotee of the mystery and a lover of beauty. she hungers for the deep and aches to always go one step further.

alana dreamed of this community, and was thrilled to join in 2020. she joined daphne as co-creator 2021, and loves curating events and holding conversations several times a week.

alana is a storyteller—a poet and a visual artist. in words and paints, she rearranges the expected to make it new, exposing the layers of beauty and struggle.

once a rule follower, she is now wholly devoted to intuition, to the silent, hidden connections, and to the wonder and joy of allowing creativity to speak loudly.

she is mama to twin teens, a growing houseplant collection, and a sweet black beagador (grownup) pup.

{within} is a new paradigm for creative women:

for artists, makers, writers
deep thinkers, wild explorers, soul sisters.

here in this artist space
we gather across generations

guided by
ritual and resilience
reciprocity and renewal
ceremony and practice

honoring the seen and the unseen:

the animals and plants
stars and cosmos

following the moon:
art workshops and studio visits
on the new and full moon

from anywhere in the world
knowing we are home

we expose our hearts
bare our souls, and
nourish our creative spirit.

a quiet, gentle revolution
upending everything fixed
for what is waiting to be freed.
