OnixBloom, I still have questions . . .
Q: I want to know why this program is special!
A: COVID-19 and the state of our world has brought to light the many challenges in our lives, B.S.S.M! is a response to the chaos. A unique, integrative program to help you process your experiences and allow a safe space to grow and Bloom.
Q: I don’t know what “womxn” means exactly!
A: The term Womxn (/ˈwʊmənˈ/, used by some feminists, especially in the intersectional feminist movement, is one of several alternative spellings of the English word woman. It is used to avoid the suggestion of sexism and patriarchal language, and to include transgender, nonbinary, and non-white women. How do I say it? The same as women. It is inclusive of ALL womxn, and so are we.
Q. You said all levels of movement. Do you really mean it?
A: Yes! Our live and recorded movement classes will give you choices and progressions for wherever you are in that moment. It is YOUR practice, and you can always go to a grounded onix rest or do what feels amazing to your unique, glorious body.
Q: What if I miss one of the live classes? Will I be able to watch it later?
A: Yes, we will record all of the sessions except the Be Witnessed calls and you will be able to watch them when it is convenient for you. We strongly encourage you to participate live as much as possible and to work out your schedule to do so, and we understand life happens!
Q: What if I fall behind?
A: We are committed to supporting you. You can watch the recordings when it works for you. You will be able to download and go at your own pace. You will have forever access to the movement videos and journaling.
Q. I have unique circumstances, how do I know this program is right for me?
A: We are here to chat, press the chat button in the bottom right-hand corner or feel free to call
1-206-310-5610 or email info@onixbloom we are here to answer all your questions.
Feel free to email with questions, we’re happy to help!
So, are you ready?
*To BE seen and heard as the powerful Womxn you are?
*To STAND for your missions in life with a supportive group of Womxn on your team?
*To SPEAK your truth to power?
*To MOVE with embodied joy?
We can't wait to B.S.S.M! with you!

"I got to be seen in the moment. There wasn’t any pressure to be any way."
It is through discovering our own Onix and Bloom in our lives and in our partnership that OnixBloom has become what it is today. We believe in embracing and dancing in the dualities of light and dark, pain and pleasure, joy and sorrow in our lives.
WHAT WOMXN ARE SAYING

"Although I could never have anticipated sharing what I ended up sharing, it was a great feeling to just be witnessed by a group of compassionate strangers, and knowing there would be no response of trying to fix my situation somehow made me feel much safer."

"Having the opportunity to just be completely within and in my body was so beautiful, so rare and unique. It literally brought me to tears, it was really, really beautiful!"
