How it all started;)

Soul Sisters

It all started exactly one year ago to the date of Moon Sister Rising Fest, September 22, 2017.

Christa arrived at the Local Mala Project in Asbury Park, NJ to teach hundreds of yogis sun salutations, straight off of a plane from Hawaii. She was carrying the energy of mama Kauai. Kate had a vendor table set up there sharing her yoni eggs, yoni steam education and women’s health offerings.

When Christa approached the table to shop, it was an immediate womance..get it ‘bromance’, haha.

The two were curious to learn more about each other and their offerings in the world. There was an instant soul spark connection. It wasn’t for another few months that they met up again.

Life brought about many changes for each of them through the spring. After Kate arrived back from an empowering journey in Mexico and Christa was working on her own path of rising, the two connected and Moon Sister Rising was born.
