I grew up fierce and free with open-minded parents who fully supported my creativity. My nickname was "Pieds Noirs", which means black foot, as I was always barefoot playing in nature, drawing, dancing, or rehearsing a play. I was a total badass.
By the age of 10, I was certain I'd become a fashion designer, and Vinvely was the name of my brand. I had started a social club, "Le Club Des Aigles Sauvages", meaning: The Club of the Wild Eagles. Oh, and yeah, I'd do things like selling wild flowers by the road.
My then boyfriend surprised me with a skydiving adventure - "are you crazy?!", I was freaking out. I thought I would die, literally. Yet, 1.2 seconds after the jump, I felt so free and blissful. The fear transformed into love, excitement, confidence: I had overcame death. This knowing that I had to meet my fears to transform then shaped the rest of my life. My courageous heart awakened.
I didn't want to be a broke artist like my dad, and I was a born businesswoman, so, I went on to study Commerce. I overcame my fear of public speaking by doing academic competitions. I then became President of the Debate Club. I was a shark in a kitten suit. My ego loved it, and I was all in my masculine, achieving a lot, yet not feeling much.
After selling my shares, I consulted for the world's largest companies. Then, I created Pink Kiwi, an interactive storytelling mobile app, followed by Olivia Bond, a lingerie line to empower women. I also helped start a modern meditation studio, and then moved to online learning to promote gender equality. It was wonderful in a way, but also imbalanced and full of emotional struggles. I was numb and disconnected. On a business trip to India, a man mentioned Vipassana. I loved the challenge of meditating for 10 days in silence. I signed up. I had my first "awakening". Something had changed... At 27, I left it all to find myself.
I moved to California and explored he depths and highs of human life: plant medicine, psychedelics, polyamory, Tinder, festivals, etc. I broke free, I broke down, so I that I could break through. I now had to love myself, I couldn't outsource it to men anymore, which led me to living Bali. There, I embarked on deeper spiritual studies and training. Little awakenings leading me home, right here within myself. I developed practices and tools to become self-aware and embody the true meaning of self-love. As powerful as it was, I was then all in my feminine - I lacked structure and I wasn't grounded enough. It was time to balance myself again and embrace both sides of me: Aude and Olivia.
