Project Description

Hi, I'm Amy Segreti, and I'm on a mission to help women fall madly in love with their bodies and the infinite beauty of their authentic expression.

After spending time deeply immersed in women's circles and ceremonies over the past year, in addition to becoming a certified women's sex educator, I've seen first-hand the power of women embracing and loving their bodies—and how it can change the world.

In this time of global change and unrest, we need empowered, embodied women more than ever.

That's why I'm creating Revere.

Revere is a pop-up embodiment party filled with dance, connection and beauty. It has been running as a monthly "underground" event in a private residence in Boulder, Colo., occurring on the Saturday closest to the Full Moon. My intention through crowdfunding on iFundWomen is to take Revere global.

ellie testimonial

The mission of Revere is to reclaim and disrupt the narratives of the strip club that no longer serve us, and shift the space into a temple to honor the feminine, with the added elements of group connection for all genders.

Because all of us—men and women, feminine and masculine—need this healing.

Each Revere event is a unique and carefully curated mixture of embodiment practices, free-form dance and interactive connection exercises—with a handful of sexy performances in the middle of it all.

Revere is divided into three acts:

During the first Act, attendees engage in a meditation to drop into their bodies, embodied movement/dance, and one-on-one communication and connection.

Act II encompasses sensual art performances. This is where we take the Western cultural narrative of the strip club and flip it on its head. Loving witnesses bear offerings of roses, chocolate and yes, money, to hold space for and cheer on the women, who express their whole selves in their performances. Women who have been witnessed in this way have called Revere "life-changing"!

Act III is a purposeful mystery, weaving together ancient practices of the sacred masculine holding space for the wild feminine, visualization exercises and closing ceremonies.

The event is a dance between the "Dirty" and the Divine—without diluting either.

Attendees and performers have called Revere "life-changing," "freeing," "magical," "inspiring," and "majestic."

Why am I the woman to lead this movement? I have a background as a dancer, longtime entrepreneur, journalist, event organizer, advocate for women's wholeness, certified yoga teacher, and certified women's holistic sex educator. These lived experiences and qualifications give me the unique, immersive perspective of what is behind us, what no longer works—and what is emerging.

At Revere, we believe that the soul and the sultry must be reunited if we are to truly see, accept and honor women in their full empowerment.

We believe that sexuality and spirituality are one in the same—and we are no longer willing to accept their estrangement in Western society.

I want to take Revere across the country and the world—hosting events where women and men can feel seen, heard and honored in their bodies.

We’re raising funds to make global change for women with Revere—but we need your help.

We want to grow Revere from an experiment happening in private residences in Boulder to an established event in multiple cities to catalyze global change for women. We’ll start by taking Revere from coast to coast in the U.S., to Los Angeles and New York City—and many more cities in 2017.

As for right now, it’s just me, and the amazing friends who have supported me along the way. In order to spread Revere globally, I need to cover production costs, back-end website/design costs, marketing/promotional costs and most importantly, hire and train part-time event producers in cities all around the world.

And we can't do this without you!

When you support this campaign, I want you to know that you are supporting women to become more fully expressed, embodied, witnessed and healed.

And what do those kinds of women do? They change the world.

Thank you. I’ll see you at a Revere event soon!

The Project FAQs

Why are you choosing to crowdfund on iFundWomen?

Revere is a revolutionary concept and event that is in the "women's sexuality" space, and this is a difficult space for conventional investors. As Cindy Gallop says: "No one wants to publicly raise their hand and announce that they’re pro-sex. It’s all about fear of what other people think."

We are looking for progressive, forward-thinking funders, both men and women, who believe strongly that the future is a world where the feminine is revered and respected—from head to toe, inside and out, exactly as She is. iFundWomen provides an incredibly supportive environment for this. Plus, they know that women only receive 2-6% of venture funding—and when women do get funded, we're working with 50% less capital than our male counterparts. Supporting women-owned and operated businesses is (clearly) very important to us!

What does "embodied movement" mean?

Embodied movement can manifest as many things, but mainly it's organic, unstructured movement, or movement that involves tuning into your body awareness or proprioception (a fancy term meaning "knowing where your body is in space"). It can look like freeform dance, it can look like lying on the ground, stretching, shaking or moving parts of your body that feel stiff or constricted. It can feel like an unraveling, a loosening, a freeing of your limbs, joints and bones. At Revere, embodied movement shows up in the first and third Acts (surrounding the performances), which are designed to bring the audience more deeply into their bodies and present to their feelings.

Why are you raising $25,000+?

Great question! We want to grow Revere from an experiment happening in private residences in Boulder to an established event in multiple cities to catalyze global change for women. Here's a breakdown of all the things we'll use the moolah for: Accounting, marketing/advertising, promotional materials (design, production, distribution), event producers + on-site staff (assistants, house mom, DJ, cleaning services, MC, bartender, bouncer), software, website creation (design, etc.), staff, utilities, travel, event catering, space, equipment rental, insurance, legal fees.

I want to donate a certain amount of $$$, but I don't necessarily want the specific reward attached. Help?

We can work anything out with communication! For example, if your reward is Revere tickets, and you don't need them because you've already purchased some elsewhere, or you're traveling in 2017 and won't be able to commit to attendance, you can either gift them to someone else in your name, or you can send me a message personally and perhaps another gift on the menu is better for you and makes more sense. :) Also, if you'd like to make an anonymous donation, I can make sure to NOT put your name anywhere you don't want it!

You mention Revere events in 2017. How many will there be?

If we reach our goal of $25,000, you can count on at least 5-6 Revere events in 2017. If we exceed our goal, we will aim for 7-12 events in 2017!

Where in the world will the events be?

If we reach our goal of $25,000, there will definitely be events in Los Angeles, New York City and continuing events in Boulder/Denver. We plan on expanding to 2-9 additional cities beyond those in 2017—and it's all up to where you are! For example, if many of our backers come from New Orleans, you can be sure we'll be having an event there! Feel free to let us know your location (U.S.) here. If you're international, simply email us after backing to: reverenights (at) gmail!

If a couple of folks and I want a private Revere event, which backer level should we choose?

Great question! This is a fabulous choice for weddings, holiday parties, special occasions and conscious gatherings of any kind. We can tailor make this for you. You would choose the $7,000 level (for United States cities) or the $10,000 level (for worldwide cities) and remember that ALL backer rewards lower than that are also yours! Pool a group of 5, 10 or 20 people together if you like!

So, I get it. But, I'm wondering if you have a succinct way of explaining this, so I can tell my friends/coworkers about it.

Sure! Revere is an interactive experience that celebrates women and their empowerment. By supporting this event, you're supporting women having more active, authentic voices and expression in the world. This expands the cultural boundaries of freedom and equality for women everywhere.
