About Athena Rising
Athena Rising was born from the founders, Claire Marcel & Anna Vickroy’s own desire for connection, collaboration and inspiration. They have experienced and deeply feel the impact of the disempowerment of women. We live in a culture where we are made to feel like we are never enough…not smart enough, not pretty enough, not a good enough mom, wife and not worthy of equal pay at work. When we buy into this old paradigm, we suffer.
A fundamental belief at Athena Rising is that we can choose to buy in to the new paradigm, that we are enough. When we show up as our authentic selves, we are courageous. We know there’s something more than always trying to prove ourselves, while judging ourselves and others. There’s a void that we’ve been feeling for awhile, and no external achievement that seems to fill it. We know we want to feel better, physically, mentally and spiritually and we know the answer is within us.
