Tami & Rachel, The Co-Founders

Why We Created Rise Gatherings


When we strengthen our own light we are able to shine it brighter and have the impact we desire in our lives and our world. Rise Gatherings is a community for women to come and explore topics and experiences, connect more deeply with themselves and each other, and receive what they need to be all of themselves. 

Now is the time to Rise.

There are many wonderful women working behind the scenes to bring every Rise Gatherings experience to life with real passion!

Amy Patsalides

Website and Design

Amy Patsalides

Amy has worked as a designer since 2010, beginning her career client-side as an art director for an ecommerce business. After 5 years in this role, expanding the brand internationally, she realised that her heart wasn’t in the corporate world, and left to start her own studio. Around this time, she also left the UK for Bali, did her yoga training, and completed her reiki level 2. As she slowly became more heart-led and intuitive in her life, she found herself more drawn to working with clients with a similar intention. Her freelance portfolio and experience centres on heart-led businesses and individuals, and she remains passionate about helping their gifts be recognised.

Abi Tasker

Marketing

Abi Tasker

Abi has worked within the digital world for around 10 years now, living the hectic London life; enjoying the vibrancy, the buzz, and the culture. She worked with some huge corporate clients, and embraced the male-dominated world of corporate digital communications. However, becoming a yoga teacher, looking inward, and listening to the desire for adventure, she pressed the parachute button and made it over to the Island of the Gods, Bali. Here she balances the slow island life, with a passionate love for all things digital, supporting clients where there's genuine connection and a match of purpose.

How We Give Back

Making a difference for women and girls everywhere.

We are thrilled to be an Impact Partner with Days for Girls to help create a world with dignity and opportunity for all through sustainable menstrual care solutions and health education. We are committed to spreading awareness and raising dollars for this important cause.

So far the Rise Gatherings Community has raised over $6,000 via our events and website and an additional $3,400 on Facebook! We are almost at our goal of $10,000 which = 1,000 Days for Girls Kits!

For every ticket purchased to our Weekend Getaway, Rise Gatherings will fund one Days for Girls kit – which supplies a girl with reusable menstrual supplies that last for 3 – 4 years.
