The Beauty Mage
A Transcendental Beauty Studio
Activate Your Magic
The Beauty Mage’s mission is to unravel the craft of caring for self from the soul outward. By creating mindful rituals around your daily soul care routines, we aid in reducing your stress and anxiety. Using the divine direction of the universe, we formulate products, education, and events intended to remind your body of its natural healing powers. Our 'whole beauty' treatments enhance and align the chakras along your entire body allowing you to face the world empowered, with your EYES WIDE open.
What We Do
We allot SIX 30-minute 1-on-1 therapy appointments per month for the community. These appointments are especially meant for our BIPOC fighting for liberation and equal rights. Appointments can be requested via direct messages to our email, social media, or text.
Allies & friends may purchase transferable gift certificates for therapy sessions for BIPOC, non-black POC, & indigenous folx. Certificates can also be used toward beauty services as we believe soul care comes in many forms.
All of the proceeds from the sales of protection sigils sold in our store will go directly to some of the organizations listed below.

Transcendental Beauty sessions are meant to transport you to a feeling of completion. They are a safe haven where you know a space for your healing will be held wide open.
They begin with some light talk therapy, then transition into a reiki session and aura cleansing. After reiki, the beauty service begins. And finally we close out with a quick tarot pull and a gift of a small ritual jar for you to continue your meditations.
The service is designed to ritualize soul care. It is based around a foundation of six core elements - release, breathe, cleanse, connect, enhance, transcend.
Transcendence comes at the nexus of belief, vision, and purpose all aligning for progress. The spirit urges us to move through emotional growth. The mind urges us to move through intellectual growth. But how does the soul urge us to move forward?
Intuition. Dreams. That still small voice. Your inner child. Whatever you prefer to call it. You already know it. Grow your confidence and speak your truth!
Give yourself permission to Release all that is not serving you. Breathe in the full expanse of support that the universe is offering you. Cleanse your spirit of any doubt. Connect to the divine within you that is conspiring for your highest good. Relax into an Enhancement ritual that will leave you feeling not only beautiful but empowered. Walk away knowing that you have achieved true Transcendence from whatever's been holding you back.

Part of the reason we like to use the term soul care is because it is meant to be inclusive. The term was coined by The Nap Ministry, which aims to 'examine the liberating power of naps. 'Rest is a form of resistance and reparations.'
In describing the necessity for the term, the Nap Bishop states, "the term self-care is limiting and leaves out examining toxic systems that cause people burn out and stress. We all want to be well but when you have to work three part time jobs with no health insurance to pay rent, dodge police brutality and navigate patriarchy, it can be impossible to care for yourself alone. The self-care and wellness industry needs to be examined. We uplift soul care and community care.
Are the wellness and 'self care' leaders talking about the lack of living wages, criminal justice system, prison industrial complex, domestic violence and lack of affordable health care? If you are just screaming about relaxing and coming to expensive retreats and classes, then what are we really doing?... The current wellness industry is racist, ableist, and an extension of toxic capitalism."

Coaching & Consulting
The chaos of the times bears necessity for modern solutions. Equity and Inclusivity in modern branding are paramount. Further, vertical integration of these ideals is going to become an imperative in the current marketplace. The bottom line for any brand is that consumers are savvier and more informed than ever before and they want to spend their money with brands that not only have quality products but that also align with their values.
Do the values of your company only align with the outdated goals of simple diversity? Diversity alone is not a motivating factor for buyers to spend money with you. Today's consumer wants to know that voices of color make it all the way to the executive level with equal merit and consideration as other candidates. Today's consumer has access to social feeds that will inform them immediately of problematic conflicts and systems of inequality within the framework of your staff. Are you prepared to answer the hard questions about your branding and design? Are you looking for direction on how your company can improve its image from the inside out?
Let us share our research with you and your team. We have innovative solutions for how you and your brand can draw and retain clients who will sing your praises. 1-day in person or remote courses, video presentations, and 1-on-1 resources are available. Contact Taryn directly by email for inquiries.
A big part of the reason I felt called to create Sekhmet Society was because I wanted to lower the entry point to some of the work that I do so that it could be accessible to a larger swath of the community, and, to be more specific, to be more accessible to black and brown people like me who often can't always afford therapy.
I chose the goddess Sekhmet as our Patron for several reasons. Sekhmet’s legend has all the makings of a proper epic fantasy. There’s anger and vengeance, justice and balance — love, healing, creation. Sekhmet is simultaneously The Destroyer & The Healer, goddess of bloodthirsty vengeance and protector of doctors and healers.
What I love most about Sekhmet is that she is the total package. She is destruction - wild, bloody, ravenous. She is revolution, messy and unpredictable. And, at the same time, she is rebirth, renaissance, and healing. How can one goddess simultaneously represent death and health?! A goddess whose name literally means ‘She Who is Powerful’.
Sekhmet Society will now live on our blog space over on Shopthebeautymage.com, with benefits including but not limited to a monthly newsletter, video courses, coloring pages, curated playlists, guided sound meditations, moon rituals, monthly altar kits, book club, and so much more.
