This February, all month long, we’re honouring the work of 28 inspiring leaders. Women who are drawing upon and celebrating their culture while making a lasting difference in their community using their gifts. From authors and teachers, CEOs to entrepreneurs, not-for-profit directors, artists, and more, these women are changing the face of leadership.
These are truly women to watch and veza community is so pleased to share their brilliance.
May their stories inspire YOU to rise.
Meet Aurora Farber.
Aurora is a Transformational Coach, Writer, Speaker, Sacred Space Ceremonialist, modern-day Priestess, International Speaker & Relationship Educator, and avid adventurer. She has lived in Europe and Asia for most of her adult life, and has travelled to over 40 countries. Her mission is to help women reclaim and ignite their “Feminine Fire”: the heart-light within that integrates life-giving power, compassionate love, and intuitive wisdom. She believes that these three feminine flames are the key to catalyzing the passionate and purposeful action that will heal our world.
She loves to create sacred spaces, whether through her work as a coach, or creating a meal with intention with her family. In our busy world, making time to create sacred space, to create a life of intentionality, has mostly been forgotten, but Aurora believes this is one of the best ways to live a life of joy, presence, and purpose. Aurora works with women through private coaching, by creating and facilitating group coaching programs, and leading women’s circles.
She is also the mom of two amazing kids, and has been married to her wonderful husband, Rhett, for almost 20 years. Together they co-founded TheExtraordinaryFamilyAdventure.com: a travel blog and website that explores sacred spaces in nature and relationships. This 40-day family odyssey through the Western United States inspired the creation of, “Family FUNdamentals: 4 Keys to Creating Your Own Extraordinary Family”: a relationship training program focusing on the power of “Vision, Clarity, Connection, and Ritual” to create intentional, sacred relationships.
Becoming a mother deepened Aurora’s appreciation of women as life-givers and caretakers. She believes that every woman is a sacred vessel, and through integrating our three feminine power centers of womb, heart, and mind, we become portals of unlimited creation… whether that is creating a child in the womb, an inspiring business, or a thriving community!
Aurora’s own creations include programs that help women connect to intentional, pleasurable and purposeful living. Her signature program, “I Am SHE: Awaken the Feminine Evolutionary Within”, supports women as they activate the feminine and claim their sacred work and divine purpose. Aurora holds honors degrees in Literature and Foreign Language, along with a professional certification in Coaching. She is a co-author of The New Feminine Evolutionary: Embody Presence, Become the Change. She has been a featured speaker and relationship workshop facilitator in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan, China and the US.
Through private coaching, online programs, women circles, and retreats, Aurora creates “sacred spaces” for women to be held, witnessed, and loved exactly as they are right here, right now. Her guiding vision is a world of women claiming their creative powers, loving their body temples, and being beacons of fierce wisdom as they burn away archaic, limiting beliefs, and light the world on fire with love.
So tell us, Aurora: What inspires you most? What motivates you to get up every morning?
I’m inspired by this gift of life, my deep love for my family, and serving my mission to help set the world on fire with love through women’s hearts.
I believe a new divine feminine consciousness is awakening to counterbalance and be integrated with the masculine consciousness that has dominated our culture for thousands of years.
This new consciousness is creating a shift toward embracing feminine gifts like collaboration, vulnerability, compassion, inclusion, equality, and tolerance.
Being a part of this movement and doing whatever I can do in my life, my family, and in my community inspires me to carry the torch of feminine consciousness daily.
How do you feel that your actions teach or inspire others?
I help others, especially women, connect and “ignite their feminine fire”: the triple flames of Power, Love, and Wisdom, as I mentioned. As women, we haven’t held power for that long, historically, and now we are a critical juncture of rising empowerment. Do we try to hold power the way we’ve been shown—through hierarchy, dominance, and striving to prove ourselves to others?
I don’t believe that works, or if it does, there are costs. Instead, I invite women to tap into their own feminine power, which is aligned with the heart (love) and with their intuition (wisdom). When these are in alignment, there is no thing, no other, that can cause us to wobble off our queenly thrones of sovereignty.
Ultimately, I teach women to access their power from within, and I do that on a daily basis by acting and showing up in my own sovereign power. Of course, there are days where I may wobble, but that’s also part of the growth: to get back on the throne and reign, to remember our sovereignty by connecting to our feminine fire.
What is one change you’d like to see in the world?
I would love to see a world where young girls grow up never doubting they are amazing, beautiful, powerful, and important.
A world where they aren’t afraid to show up as they are, vulnerable and authentic, and where they know they can reach out to others and ask for support freely.
A world in which there is less comparison, and more appreciation for our differences.
A world where aligning to our power, love, and wisdom is taught to children as the precursor for making choices.
A world where women, young and old, come together in sisterhood each month, to be held and witness and supported exactly where they are.
A world where this feminine consciousness is in balance with the masculine and creates an environment of love and support for all.
Which of your contributions to date have given you the greatest sense of pride?
My children, of course!
They are amazing and I love watching them evolve and grow. Becoming a mother has been my accelerated path of evolution, and I wrote about this in a co-authored book, “The New Feminine Evolutionary: Embody Presence, Become The Change.”
In terms of professional contribution, I am very proud to be a part of the amazing sisterhood of women sharing their voices and their stories of vulnerability and transformation. Writing that chapter also helped me claim the importance and value of being a mother, and motherhood as a profound evolutionary portal. I love working with moms to help them claim these evolutionary keys.
Anything else to add?
Thank you for this opportunity to share my story and my work. I hope that it inspires others to trust in their own “feminine fire” and make choices in alignment to their 3 power centers. From the smallest decision, to an important life-changing one, I’ve found that listening to this guidance within is a powerful way to live, love and leave a legacy.
