Tui is passionate about empowering people to embrace and celebrate what makes them unique and turning that passion into their lifestyle.

“I believe when we show up in life as the best version of ourselves it inspires others to do the same. The small shifts we create internally are the ripple effects that are needed to shift the world externally. I believe good things should be shared! For me, Our Rising Academy is where we can co-elevate and co-create.” - Tui

The Mission

Empowering Light Workers to live the life they love physically, emotionally, mentally, financially and spiritually.

The Vision

When I started working in the spiritual industry, I witnessed other practitioners bringing each other down due to fear.  Whether it was through fear of judgment, fear of failure, fear of not being enough or not feeling worthy enough, fear is the one thing that light workers are her to alleviate. 


Witnessing this I stepped back from the spiritual community to focus on what I was really meant to do: help others. I flew solo in my career for many years just focusing wholeheartedly on my clients, the people I am here to serve. I knew one day I’d have an opportunity to create change this spiritual industry and here I am. This is where the idea of Our Rising Academy was born. As part of my vision I could see a school for light workers where we embrace diversity and highlight what makes each one of us unique.


As light workers I don’t think that we are meant to be the same, but I do think we should radiate at the highest frequency possible. That frequency is of unconditional love. 


That type of love sees people with compassion not judgement; it lifts you up. It sees you beyond gender, colour, age or religion. It’s a unity & a oneness. It is the most basic definition of what humanity should be. Humans in unity. 


I believe if individually we all did our work from within, we’d naturally radiate at a better frequency.  When we vibrate at a higher frequency we think more clearly. Things flow to us effortlessly. We exude love, light and happiness.  Inside of that is the key to success in all aspects of life. From your relationships to your health, wealth and vitality. 


I wanted to create a safe place where people could embrace and be embraced because of what makes us unique. I believe that is what we should be celebrating and I want to create a community of light workers that celebrates that diversity with me.


Our Rising Academy is the definition of that. Raising our own vibration so we can support others in doing the same.
