What we're about


Advaya Initiative is a wellbeing and sustainability platform created by Ruby and Christabel Reed, two sisters intent on inspiring activism for healthier, more environmentally aware and globally considerate lifestyles.

We produce regular, dynamic, multi-faceted events and materials of inspirational content for an engaged, active and discerning audience. We invite groundbreaking speakers, thinkers and writers, as well as the world’s best healers, teachers and spiritual practitioners, to share their knowledge and perspective. We then collaborate with extraordinary venues, designers and chefs to curate an inspirational setting, whether this is beneath the stars and an ancient Mulberry Tree in the English countryside, a wild villa retreat in Corsica, or a light-flooded, vaulted Victorian school building in London.

Event formats vary from workshops, talks and supper-clubs, to screenings, festivals, retreats, ceremonies and pilgrimages. Each event promotes clarity of mind, purity of action and a deeper connection to the Self, alongside educational content and communal action, transforming our understanding of the world, and most significantly, the way we interact with our surroundings.

We pride ourselves on the calibre of our speakers and the quality of the experiences we create. Our talks and workshops are filmed and streamed via the Advaya Live platform (launching in Spring 2017), and Advaya Magazine is published twice a year. We also curate corporate and private events for those keen to recreate the Advaya experience for themselves.

We believe the time is ripe for a conscious and heart-led transformation of the way we treat ourselves, each other, and the natural world. Advaya Initiative aims to support, empower and inform those who wish to be part of this.
