Meet Deepen Guide: Ardilla Deneys

Guide at event Talk Nerdy to Me and Plant Beautification Volunteer Day

Ardilla is a consultant for people, projects, and products in the circular economy. Her company, Pollima, is expanding to create materials made from agricultural waste and mycelium.

What's your zone of genius? 

Circular economy! To rope in the resistant, I'm considering a new term: sustainable capitalism. Either way, my life is dedicated to creating new systems of production and consumption so that we don't have to convince any one person to change anything about their daily routine.

How's your love life? 

I love love! My partner and I met in October '17, on a magical bridge outside of a conference, and fell in stride immediately. After exploring non-monogamy in my 20s, I find myself now exploring a deep intention in monogamy. To me, "partner" means someone that I want to do life with. It's amazing to be with someone who has a similar goal.

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do for biodiversity, for trees, and most specifically for ancient redwoods; to create abundance for all beings. I see humanity like an amoeba - and each person is a cilium. Each person only has time to make one squiggle in their entire life. If we work together, our one squiggle can move us in a positive, regenerative, and healthy direction.

Meet Deepen Guide: Sasha Marie Speer

Guide of HÜMAN by Sawubona

Los Angeles - based award winning filmmaker, artist, and photographer, Sasha Marie Speer, explores the threads that connect humans to each other, nature, and themselves. 

What's your zone of genius? 

My background is as a healer (Doctor of Physical Therapy) where I used a lot of mindset tools such as breathing and visualizations to heal. I have since delved further into these fields and bring forth my deep knowledge of the human mind and psychology in my art to help open up people's minds and perceptions of themselves and the world they live in.

How's your love life? 

I am recently engaged! Funny story, we actually met in an art gallery as I was pitching one of my shows (which you're technically not supposed to do, but how do you get anywhere by listening to the way things are "supposed" to be done.). We couldn't stop talking and have been together ever since!

Why do you do what you do?

Each of my shows has a very specific intention that relates to the theme. I make sure I am a 100% clearing for that intention before the show. As an example, for our REBIRTH show, I cleared out every ounce of my past that I hadn't yet dealt with, including the physical manifestations of my drawers, closet and file folders and set very clear goals for my future. Thus, I will be able to hold the space through my work and energy to allow visitors to tap into their own clearing for their future.

Meet Deepen Guide: Marisa Reyes
Marisa Reyes.jpg

Guide of Earth Medicine Gathering

Marisa weaves together ancient healing modalities of abdominal massage, yoni steam, Kundalini, and Breathwork in ceremonies to support womb health.

What's your zone of genius? 

I love working in the realm of the healing arts, whether it is private healing sessions or community gatherings, by integrating bodywork, breath, sharing medicine songs, oracle readings, and witnessing and being present with people in their process.

How's your love life? 

It is continuously evolving and deepening as I navigate the relationship with my beloved Austrian-born husband/business partner of Purple Lotus Massage and Wellness, Michael Meier. My love life is a practice of compassion, connection, exploration, vulnerability, and remembering to taking risks. 

Why do you do what you do?

I love helping people reach that deep state of relaxation, finding homeostasis, and with that, deep healing. I especially feel instantly gratified when I’ve helped a woman have pain-free menstrual cycles, creating hormonal balance and a healthier relationship with herself and others.

Megan “Z” Zimring

Guide of The Liberation Dojo

Megan “Z” Zimring, is a transformational guide serving as a voice for animals & master plant teachers. She's found her purpose in creating safe spaces for others to remember themselves whole while reclaiming empowered creatorship.

What's your zone of genius? 

Emotional Alchemy. Ceremony. Alignment. I hold a space of unconditional love & non judgement for the entire spectrum of the human emotional experience to move through in service of healing and true transformation. 

How's your love life? 

It's a compelling, deep, sexy dance with divinity. A living adventure with my partner Oren who ceaselessly calls me into deeper states of the Divine Union I'd always dreamt of and now get to experience in full living color.

Why do you do what you do?

It feels true. I've been through the fire of transformation many times and I know both the pain & the bliss of liberation on the other side of our fear based edges. I'm here to shine the light on those edges and support others in moving through their own initiations into freedom.

Meet Deepen Guide: Daliya Karnofsky and Avra Friedman
All My Single Friends Daliya Karnofsky and Avra Friedman

Guides of All My Single Friends

Daliya is a professional Dating Coach. She helps people figure out what they want and how to get it (whether for life or for the night).

Avra is an actor/comedian, with credits ranging from opening for Gilbert Gottfried to a recurring role on the new comedy series "Now Apocalypse" on Starz.

What's your zone of genius? 

D: I want people to have fun with dating, by finding the joy in people research and a good story. Being able to laugh at all of the crazy adventures that come out of two imperfect people colliding is the essential ingredient in attracting a healthy relationship, and I help you get there.

A: All things comedy! Which definitely makes for an entertaining host. But also...I'm a person! I'm energetic, kindhearted, and supportive. I want to absolute best for the guests that come to my event so I do my best to put them in the best light. Thats a lot of bests right there!

How's your love life? 

D: Solid. I have had plenty of adventures, and now I am happy to say I have found the joy in comfort and the comfort in joy, and the new kind of adventure within that. And I could never be here or be happy being here if I hadn't been through a whole lot of hilarious people and self-research first.

A: It. Is. (Currently.) Good! Hit me up for more deets!

Why do you do what you do?

D: I've always been obsessed with other peoples' love lives. Connection is the one thing everyone wants. Dating is disparaged, but if we change our story around it and learn to enjoy it, it actually is enjoyable, and then we might find the person (or persons) who's even more enjoyable than that!

A: I want to create community in a city that needs it! I strive to help people find friendships and romantic relationships. To help them connect! I want to put people in their optimal light. Literally and metaphorically. So that they show up to others the way they want to be seen.

Guide of Talk Nerdy to Me + We Wednesdays

Sonic alchemist on a mission to stimulate the inner resonance chamber, and attune collectively to the power of subtle energy and qi awareness.

What's your zone of genius? 

Seducing the Muses. Activating fearless self expression. Using my background as a classically trained violinist and poetry major to weave soundspells. Creating magical spaces / portals for otherworldly experiences.

How's your love life? 

I have been celibate for over 3 years. I enjoy meeting people in that boundaried space and exploring the depths of soul connection, heart intimacy, and sensuous activation that can arise when there is no agenda. I treasure what can be built on those foundational depths.

Why do you do what you do?

I love to activate the inner child... to bring people together into deep sincere connection through playfulness, intellectual stimulation, and the act of raising our voices together into a collective vibrational bubble of sound and qi
