Laya means Family and MonÁxi means Daughter of the Earth in the Kimbundo dialect from Angola. MonÁxi and Olivia Augusta MonÁxi are the founders of this movement, representing the healing and empowerment of women, whose healing has a direct impact on their respective families and communities.
The women of Laya MonÁxi believe that change has first to begin with the microcosm, creating processes that heal and support through the use of music, workshops, retreats and online resources.
We believe in the YES of life, acceptance of the self, the sacred and unique.
We believe in sexual liberation and healing through education and empowerment, encouraging the beauty and strength of the sacred feminine.
We at Laya MonÁxi want to strengthen our global family, moving towards a more fulfilling and sustainable future, honoring the abundance and variety the Mother Earth has blessed us with.
The women of Laya MonÁxi believe in the power of ritual and ceremony to heal and unite community. We stand for holding sacred space that respects all beliefs and ways of being, creating environments for healing, health and change.
In collaboration with other changemakers, Laya MonÁxi hold monthly gatherings at our home in the Serra da Arrabida, featuring interesting presentations and educational workshops as well as a house Jam Session oriented by MonÁxi, as well as frequent community rituals such as Medicine Sweat Lodge.
