What We Do

As a Filipino Woman, you may hold traditional cultural dialogues in your head that clash with the Western cultural norms. Whether you were born in the Islands (Philippines) or not, speak the language with an accent or barely at all, many of us hold true the words spoken by well-intentioned individuals-a.k.a. your parents, lola & lolo who remind you the path they've led & the destination they hope for you to reach.

These dialogues of hope become the stories you live by. Although promising & lovingly set forth, may have created a disconnect inside you. A disconnect you can't seem to pinpoint but shows itself in your daily stresses, in your mundane relationships & a life that sounds good enough to share during family potlucks but truly ISN'T YOURS.

We craft FREE Happiness Tools for Filipino Women & her family so you can find your way back home- to YOURSELF.
