You can probably already sense that Rebel Of Light within you
She’s a little sassy. She’s ruthless in her search for truth. More than anything, she cares, and she hates seeing you settle.
‘Rebellion’ may feel familiar to you; it’s a flavour you’ve savoured in the past; a force inside of you that invites you toward the next iteration of YOU and the life you want to create.
Stereotypical rebellion will remind us perhaps of our tantrums, all those rules we broke, all those curfews we shrugged off, our desire to live on the edge, our ravenous hunger for chaos and disruption.
Or perhaps your experience with rebellion is that which feels unexpressed, stifled, unexplored. Perhaps you’ve ignored the ways in which others around you have robustly given voice and action to the injustice on their heart. Perhaps you’ve admired that courage and desired to cultivate more of it in yourself?
Me? I’m well acquainted with rebelling without a cause.
I’ve partied (very) hard. I’ve stormed furiously out of jobs that pinched at my Soul. I’ve bratted my way through situations with a scowl and a furrowed brow. I’ve given the middle finger to the systems and paradigms that just didn’t work for me.
I used to love the stereotypical meaning of ‘rebel,’ and wore it as a badge of honour. (I’ve got the tattoos to prove it).
But these days - for a while now, actually - rebellion has taken on a whole new meaning.
I don’t rebel to escape my life anymore, or to numb my pain, or disassociate from what’s unfolding...
I choose to rebel and rise for a reason.
Rebelling with light is... different
Instead of focusing on what we’re rebelling against (which only strengthens our relationship with that thing, person or power structure), we set our gaze on what we’re rebelling for. On who we are becoming. On where we can be agents of divine order in the pockets that human order has sent us so devastatingly off-course.
Rebelling with light is…
Destructive, yes. Creative, always. Generative, when drenched in light. Juicy, interesting, youthful.
Rebellion at its stripped back core has a young, adolescent quality to it; it's the spring which is needed to gather energy and create change in beliefs, behaviours and systems that are worn out, non-serving and oppressive. This adolescent-like energy is, of course, just one phase on the continuum of transformation; a phase that we can choose to activate and weave throughout our lives in creative desire. It’s a critical, life-giving phase – one which helps us to individuate as the human beings we are here on earth – but in so many of us, this inner rebel is fast asleep.
It’s time to stir her awake.
Typically, stifled emotion – and feeling like your needs aren’t being met – precede any great act of rebellion.
With that in mind... I have a sense you may be feeling:
There’s a change you want to see in your own life, and in the world, but everything’s moving so fast, and it’s just so noisy out there, and you’re just so painfully distracted from your values and what’s required of you right now, you find yourself frozen in complete inaction. It’s manifesting as physical discomfort.
All day, every day, the culture – both at large and in niche – is telling you what to believe and what to stand for, and the type of person you are if you do or don’t uphold those expectations. You’re finding it hard to separate out your own thoughts and values from the beliefs and broadcasts of others. Self-doubt is insidious, Rebel-heart, and confusion is a dream killer.
Closely linked to that, OVERWHELMED
You know you’ve been consuming too much. Social media, opinions, articles, Netflix. All of this data and information is great, but it’s not as fun as it used to be, because you’re substituting it for the great work you’re here to share with the world, and when you’re comparing yourself or not engaged in the deep flow of YOU, it feels like you’re drowning under the weight of surface-level ‘stuff.’ It’s not just more time you’re craving, it’s more you.
You remember a time when you were more daring; when you were more regularly in a state of awe, when you would purposely explore your boundaries. You often long for the courage you once freely expressed.
There’s no other word for it. Where has that creative juice gone? Where is that spring in your step? Where is that audacious Rebel within - with a smirk on her face and a mission on her heart?
There’s a missing piece of the puzzle you can’t put your finger on. You’ve read all the books, listened to all the podcasts, bought a ticket to every motivational speaker to come through your town… and yet, there’s still a floating sense of disconnect between heart and mind. You’re craving the structure, accountability, and safe containers that simply haven’t manifested with the standard self-help and development routines available to you.
Rebels Of Light offers her a stage to step onto, in a truly safe place, where she can emerge more acknowledged and ready for change than ever before.
Redefining Rebellion requires us to be in right relationship with the world around us. To firmly fit our own crowns to our own heads, to understand the foundations of energetic hygiene* so we can live fuelled and free in the next breath.
*Like washing your hands or brushing your teeth, the way you take care of your energy requires practice and discipline.
How We Roll
Rebels Of Light is a transformational, 9-month journey with a very clear goal: to awaken the sovereign aspects of your Soul so that individually, and united as a community, real and lasting change can be felt and witnessed. First within your interior life, and then in our world.
We gather to put the power back in your hands; the crown back on your head, to reconnect you with your innermost self through a series of powerful and practical processes, and to take meaningful and influential action in our communities (starting with the home). We understand that to create the world we want to be a part of, first, there must be inner harmony. Through a combination of stillness practices, inner inquiry, monthly mentoring, nourishing discussions, intimate accountability and participation dares, a container will be created for you to alchemise your life like never before.
HOW DOES BEING A CHAMPION FOR
THE WORLD BENEFIT YOU?
As you take ownership of your power, not only does your confidence grow, but so too does your profile, your platform, your agency. Your influence in creating ripples of change catapults.
Deeper compassion drives you to a place where you are no longer burdened by the dis-empowering energy of blame. That is to say: instead of preaching change, or complaining that there is a world you would rather inhabit, you become it. You deposit your participation into creating that world.
You are utterly freed from inner helplessness. Your motion in the world mitigates the guilt and disassociation that leaves little to no room for solutions.
You are crystal clear on which social and cultural issues matter the most to you. Without the noise of what you ‘should’ be lending your voice and resources to, you’re the most effective advocate for change you’ve ever been.
Mindfully sequenced content will support the rising of your inner Rebel. Let’s explore what’s included in your membership...
How We Roll
Standard Rebels of Light Membership Inclusions
LIVE GUIDING LIGHTS
Each month on a live webinar, our curriculum is designed to drive us deeper and raise us higher. As a community, we’ll dissect and discuss the coursework, apply practices in real time, and strengthen our bond as a collective. These calls are interactive and playful, and have been curated to build upon one another, so as the months roll on, we are sustainably (and beautifully) building resilience in our nervous systems. We’ll be dialling up our light, cranking conscious rebellion, and fortifying the futures we believe in. We’ll call this our Guiding Light, and it’ll set the tone of the mentoring for the rest of the month.
Curious about what the Guiding Light calls are really like? Hit play below to experience what it feels like to be on a Rebels of Light mentoring call with Tara.
12 DNA STRANDS: THE LIFEBLOOD OF OUR PROGRAM
There are 12 core values that are woven throughout the program. Think of their union as a 12 stranded DNA helix. Each strengthening the other; better together.
Our anchoring values are Courage, Creation and Collaborative Leadership.
…because life throws curve balls like it's batting practice in the A-Leagues. I’ve learnt that as tempting as it is to turn away, you must face that ball and swing for the bleachers.
...because when the planet needs more light than ever, we need to you to rise up out of primitive behaviours and survival mode, and embrace thriving as a creator on this earth.
… because no one should ever feel like they need to do it alone. The days of the Lone Wolf are long gone and it’s well and truly time to find your pack and rise together.
These 3 values are always in play in mobilising rebellion and are required to explore the other 9 DNA strands, which include:
Curiosity · Attunement · Sovereignty · Sensuality
Reverence · Play · Power · Metamorphosis · Beauty
AN ENERGISED FACEBOOK TEMPLE
& DNA DARES
A space where you can be you, and we can be us. A space to witness and be witnessed, a space to participate, celebrate and take flight. The digital shrine that provides hang time and connection with other Rebels of Light. At the beginning of each week, I’ll drop DNA Dares into the group via Facebook Live; we’ll breathe life into one of the 12 values through action, which’ll support our Guiding Light for the month. The idea? To make spiritual practice and inquiry fun, fulfilling, curious and exploratory – not heavy, dogmatic and burdensome, because we all know that spirituality is not a one-size-fits-all; it’s as individual as the swirl on your fingertip.
The best part? You’ll be delving into dares with your fellow Rebels, including myself. Yep, I’ll be right there with you; shoulder-to-shoulder. DNA dares are little nuggets of curiosity dropping into your field of attention; they’re digestible anchors to bring you back home to your rebellion each week. The steady drip feed of prompts encouraging exploration of the DNA Strands, combined with the participation and exquisite space-holding of the community, supports a depth of impact that will stay with you long after the program ends.
TOOLS OF TRANSFORMATION
You'll be equipped with guided meditations, journal prompts and resource lists to support your rising.
REBELS OF LIGHT GRAND FINALE:
YOUR CELEBRATION PROJECT
The standing ovation. The mother of all recognition. The stunning round of applause. And it’s all aimed at YOU.
Step into the limelight, Rebel, because your last month of this journey is entirely dedicated to you taking to the stage that is your life and staking your claim in this world as a Rebel Of Light.
Who will you have become by the end of 2019?
What relationships will you have transformed, dissolved or called in?
What creative projects will you have brought to life, made more magical by the tools you’ve learned throughout the year?
How will your experience of your Soul, your intuition, your inner selves alchemise the way you experience yourself?
What traumas and stories will you have liberated from your being, allowing you to stand tall, glorious, autonomous, generous?
You’ll bring your light to a project* that calls to your Soul and excites your Inner Rebel.
*No craft scissors required. We’re redefining the concept of project, too.
BY APPLICATION ONLY: REBELS OF LIGHT IMMERSION RETREAT
We’re thrilled to be holding two back-to-back Rebels Of Light retreats on the beautiful Gold Coast, Australia in August 2019. These retreats will be intimate, nurturing containers for rich transformation with only 5 spaces available at each. In alignment with the rest of the Rebels of Light journey, we won’t be busting out worksheets or offering dorky introductions. Nope, these retreats are carefully curated containers for connection, exploration and embodiment.
Retreat fees and travel costs are not included in your membership fee. Attendance will be available to Rebels by application only, with further information and full details on pricing scheduled for release in May 2019.
REBELS OF LIGHT SPACE HOLDERS
We've got your back with our phenomenal Rebels of Light Space Holders.
A small handful of our Rebels Alumni return in 2019 to skillfully assist our team in ensuring that you have the most transformational and high-touch experience possible.
Metamorphosis requires courage and risk, but in an era of such abundant online irresponsibility, it also requires a container that is boundaried, safe and inclusive.
You can look forward to weekly video calls with these beautiful women who will facilitate a space of conversation and connection with your community.
SAY HELLO TO YOUR RESIDENT
REBEL WING WOMAN
Casey Addinsall has been the right-hand woman, the doer of deeds and the wind beneath my business’ wings for three years now, and this year, she’s lending more of her superpowers to you and your rising.
As well as being your to-go for any admin concerns, she’s a mastress of systems and structure, she’s creatively and reverently wired, she’ll remind you to dance off any funk that’s festering and she will not pander to your fear. I’m so proud of her for that. Casey is super-sonically skilled in deep listening, in leaning into bumps that require my attention and ensuring people feel at home whilst experiencing discomfort and growth. (Bonus - those who attend our Rebels retreat, you can certainly look forward to her head massages)
Our 2018 rebellion just adored her:
Thank you for the wisdom, comedy, and love you held in this group. - Sam Davis
Your light is enormous. - Jessica Carey
That you for everything you have done for us this year. From keeping this Rebel machine well oiled, holding space for us and bearing witness to our evolution. You are such a beautiful human! - Christina Iezzi
THIS PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED FOR YOU, IF:
You can easily identify areas in your life that require both rebellion and light
You want to actively participate in a movement, in a community that learns, grows, expands and embodies alongside one another
You’re not afraid to look closely at what’s not working, in order to transform it
You’re willing to actively participate with the group; knowing that engagement will amplify the content you receive
You get goosebumps when you’re jamming with visionary, lit up humans
Self-responsibility is your M.O (you’re so done with blame and you outgrew victimhood eons ago)
You ache to live a life of devotion, but without the dogma that’s often attached to it
You want your spirituality to feel practical, anchored and void of superiority
You want to engage with an experience that stubbornly reflects your own inner light and knowing, giving you the tools to self-coach and soothe in your life
You want to learn the tools that pluck trauma out from its root so that you can liberate your energy and live a creative, future-focused life
You miss playing. You miss joy. You miss peppering your days with moments of ‘just because it’s fun’
You’re a firecracker craving a delicious softening, or a gentle soul hanging to take up more space
Rebels of Light is likely not right for you, if:
You prefer to passively consume content, rather than engage with it. Flipping open your laptop to watch a recording of a group training, while munching on your dinner, toggling between screens and then taking zero action is simply not going to fly around here. No change is created this way, and this will only add to the consumption load in your life right now. Participation is not only necessary, and required, it’s absolutely vital for this to be a worthwhile use of your time. Please resist joining if you’re simply looking to be ‘inspired’ rather than activated.
You cannot or will not gift yourself the time and space that will be required for you to successfully complete the program (2-3 hours a week, perhaps a little more in October and November). Please remember that this is an 9-month program. (The miracles that we’ll see unravel in that time will be monumental!) If you can’t realistically commit to this, consider joining us for the next round in 2020, instead.
You need worksheets and checklists and 1-2-3 steps to feel as though you’re growing or receiving value. This is a subtle program, darlin'. I cannot possibly emphasise that word enough. But it’s precisely that subtly, and your devotion to remaining engaged for these 9 months that will accumulate into monumental and irreversible shifts. We will mindfully (and without rushing) teach you how to build an interior scaffolding of strength and flexibility, which’ll allow you to experience more joy and delight as well as be able to graciously move through pain, grief and despair. We’ll ask you to trust our pace, our process and the ways in which this journey is intentionally layered. Lean in with us.
I went live on Facebook and Instagram to answer all your questions.
Click play just below to watch...
And then I invited my (and your) Rebel Wing Woman, Casey Addinsall, to join me for another powerful Live session where we got down and dirty with your most vulnerable hesitations.
Watch that one here...
In other words: we're going deep in our quest for light. We're not here to splash in the shallows.
It is human nature to instinctively rebel at obscurity or ordinariness.

MANTRAS FOR A REBEL OF LIGHT
I recognise that the personal is political and the political is personal. Whatever I do to grow my community, is also going to grow me.
I am not just a child of the world, but a parent to it. Whatever the world is going to turn out to be, I need to participate in it.
I need to fulfil my potential. It is my Soul’s desire. The way I do that is by serving my community.
What happens to one, happens to all.
I am a citizen of the world. Over these next 9 months, I am learning what it means to be that.
How do I make the most of my membership as a Rebel Of Light?
Here are some ideas // Make a commitment to awaken action. Inspiration is not enough anymore, it’s what we do with it. // Practice presence. During training calls and Facebook Lives, minimise distractions. Close down extra tabs on your computer, put Instagram to the side. Really offer yourself to this. It’s one of the best ways you can honour your financial investment and honestly, it just feels so good to be present and plugged in. Your full-tilt participation really matters. // Our Facebook group was not created to serve as a distraction. It holds the container for us as the community to bring this vision to life. This group is served by a collection of human beings working together. Let’s honour it as that. You might like to set aside a little time each day or week to check in with the group and offer the content and conversations your attention. // Bring a journal to The Guiding Light each month and get scribbling.
Prioritise kindness and generosity. Lift your fellow Rebels high. Celebrate them.
How will the material be delivered? Do I need a Facebook account?
Our sacred Rebels of Light containers are hosted straightforward but powerful platforms including Facebook, Zoom calls, and direct email. // You’ll also have access to a private member site (hosted here on this website), which stores our call recordings, community guidelines, and more. // If you don’t have Facebook, and aren’t willing to join the platform at all, you will miss out on a core part of the program. Please know though, this is not just another online group - our last wave of Rebels were floored by the stunning connection and sense of community that emerged from our Facebook Temple. Like all social media, it is what you make of it and we have crafted some specific guidelines to ensure you feel safe and inspired showing up to this online space.
What if I can’t make a call?
Don’t sweat it! // Rebels come from far and wide to sit by the campfire together, we all have Life (work, kidlets etc.) to take care of. It’s tricky to find a time that suits all continents and all schedules, so instead we alternate the scheduled time for our monthly Guiding Light mentoring calls and always aim to have the recording saved in the Rebels member library within 24 hours (technology permitting). // Facebook content and live calls (like our weekly DNA dares) will be available immediately.
What technology do I need to access all this magic?
You’ll need Wi-Fi and your trusty laptop/desktop/smartphone/tablet of choice. // Other than that, your brains and hearts are the most powerful tech we could hope for you to bring along!
Do I receive Lifetime Access to the Facebook group and membership site?
No. Our time together is most powerful because it is intentional, time-bound and contained. // At the close of the program our dedicated Rebel containers will close. You will be given ample opportunity to review and download any additional resources we’ve created for you along the way.
You talk a lot about taking action and making an impact in the world. What if I don't have a business or an online platform?
Great question! // Rebels of Light has not been created for entrepreneurs or social ‘influencers’ at all. // Being a Rebel is about peeling back all the layers that have been wrapped around you up until now and truly seeing and feeling yourself, maybe for the first time. This program offers tools and steadfast encouragement to cultivate inner harmony by offering space for your Rebel to emerge in the world. // It’s for anyone who longs for freedom; the freedom that comes with living an audaciously authentic life. // This world is a beautifully complex place at times, transformation can’t tick over at the scale we need it to until enough individuals put their hand up to break from the dogma and broken systems. Yes, that includes business owners and those with a public profile, but it also very much includes mammas, artists, public servants, lovers, academics, teachers, and the rest.
9-months feels like a long time. Am I locked in?
When you say YES to Rebels of Light, you’re saying YES to completing the 9-month journey and we’re committed to you completing it. // Rebels Of Light is a transformational program and is bound to bring up stuff for you. If this happens - and it will - please give yourself a pat on the back. Something is going right if you’re being confronted with the desire to run away! //
This program will help you recognise these triggers and patterns of incompletion so you can live your life in a way that isn’t ruled by your inner escape artist. Fear is a knee-jerk reaction to growth. The scared and vulnerable parts of you no longer need to be the aspects that dictate your decisions. Honour yourself for leaning past the boundaries of your comfort zone. // I am an ally to you and your Soul, as is this program. We have bolstered our support structures this round - inside the Rebellion your transformation will be held and witnessed by a core team of women who are adept at navigating even the most challenging aspects of life (not to mention the stellar support from your fellow Rebels, just you wait). We will help you meet any and all discomfort with compassion and curiosity.
Can I get a refund?
No. This is a mutual contract. // I am committed to creating and holding a space for you to experience yourself as a Rebel of Light, and you are committed to your own transformation. Your financial commitment here is also an energetic one. You are placing your dollars where you want your heart to be. This investment allows and encourages you to show up wholeheartedly. // If you decide to discontinue, you are still legally responsible for paying the balance.
Do you have an affiliate link?
Affiliate privileges are reserved for Rebels of Light Ambassadors. // If you’d like to invite your community into our tribe for the next round, thank you, sincerely. We’d love you to share your experiences with people if you feel it’s in their best interest.
This is amazing, I told a man in my life about Rebels and he wants in too. Can he join?
Gosh, honey this is something we’ve been feeling into for a long time. We love that the men in your life are ready to rebel as much as you, their transformation is just as important and vital as yours and we’d love to offer something for our male identifying Rebels in the future, but it’s not something available at this time.
Can I get private coaching with Tara?
There are currently no options to mentor in a 1:1 capacity with me. // If you’d like to experience a deeper level of mentoring you may like to consider applying for the Rebels of Light retreats. The retreats will be held on the Gold Coast in August in a truly magical space, supported personally by myself and Casey (our resident Rebel wing woman). //
Applications for the retreat will be open to participants in the 2019 program only.
Can I promote my epic products and services in the tribe’s Facebook group?
What happens if someone does something to upset or offend me?
Online communities are so valuable, but like everything, they’re not without their challenges. // We must understand that when it comes to communities such as these – ones in which we cannot see each other, let alone accurately translate tone, inflection and intention – then it’s very possible that we may become triggered at times. // This is to be expected, and it’s totally okay. This program will re-instill the reality that nobody can offend us; that it is US who allows ourselves to become offended. // We can lessen the likelihood of this by being generous in our assumptions of others. Rebels Of Light take responsibility for their thoughts, feelings, behaviours, reactions and actions, and with practice, they are not easily offended. We cultivate this responsibility by looking within first, and then reaching out in kindness for clarification, if necessary. (Often, after looking within, it is unnecessary) // We have to feel safe in this community if we are to expand, and we are all responsible for creating safety in the group. Humans are diverse, complex and magnificent. We will celebrate our differences, raise each other up, and assume the best in one another.
