A Christianity We’ve Never Fully Tried

2022-04-18T21:51:54+00:00

Growing up Catholic, Good Friday always seemed to be named wrong. (I mean, what was so good about a crucifixion, except a day off from school?!) I've strayed from that path, but I've always been drawn to deeper story not always told. The hidden wisdom traditions. Even before I received guidance and "met" Mary Magdalene in meditation her real story was compelling to me. Ok, obsession. In the Christian Gospels we see her prominently in the Easter story, and yet her importance has been downplayed. Her story corrupted. But her time has come. As I've deepened into the mysteries of

Slow the F Down, Sister

2022-04-18T21:37:37+00:00

If you’re like me, you move through the world pretty quickly. You get a lot done, you have ideas and goals that you achieve, and you’re managing many tasks and ideas at one time. (At least ideally.) That’s not a bad thing, and in fact our culture has rewarded us for this way of being. But sometimes it doesn’t work so great huh? It can lead to chronic fatigue. Waves of exhaustion, injury, unhappiness, and burnout. I recently went through a time that felt like racing through my life. To what end? It just felt imperative to keep up this

Recapture Your Alignment with Source

2022-04-18T21:47:18+00:00

Breathing in, at the end of my meditation and prayer practice, I ground and connect. Returning to my center and spiritual practices, to recapture my own divine alignment. The craziness of the world “out there” only mirrors the confusion and chaos in the collective, that’s being felt, and has been for a long time. But we don’t have to step into that. We can recapture our Divine Alignment and live harmony. Once again, this is a shift from the toxicity of the masculine gone awry, entering a deeply feminine state of grace. How do we do this? Slow the F*

Alchemy in Motion Together

2022-04-18T21:29:43+00:00

There’s something about hundreds of hours in a car that makes my mind go flat line. Maybe it was road rash. Now that I’m fully back from our month long road trip to the Southwest US, I thought I’d share a glimpse. It wasn’t all ideal—like any trip there were initiations and dark nights of soul—but some cool shifts and practices emerged that I thought I’d share. So many things I expected fell away. Working? Nearly non-existent internet access. Contemplation or planning? My soul's unwillingness to focus. I was unable to have deep or worrisome thoughts.(A welcome respite.) But

Surrendering to Now

2022-04-18T21:12:54+00:00

Lately it’s obvious (though I’ve been thinking this for a while:) What if we stopped fighting “what is,” the near-constant struggle to fix and change life in 2021, our covid-tainted intensity, uncertainty, and strife? What if we are missing the point of all it? (Remember the Great Reset? Did we get it?) What if there are (even more) blessings, as-yet unacknowledged and unreceived in our absent attention? What if there’s a better way to live that’s trying to peek through? Instead of fighting, can you let that in? Lately I’m knowing that pushing and driving mostly no longer works. Consistent

Receive Your Life

2022-04-18T21:22:59+00:00

I love this quiet reflective season. During these waning days of the year, I love to do a really thorough annual review. I’ve found over time that it’s SO helpful to see the year with a fuller perspective, so the lens is not my memory of the last few months. (I’m always shocked by the goodness that happened, in July or last March for example.) What I’m noticing this year is that despite our best intentions and efforts, things have not gone “back to normal” and seem to be highly chaotic still. We are not over this process that Gaia/Earth

Ancient Goddess Tale Revealed & Rising

2021-12-07T23:11:55+00:00

This time of year I'm always drawn to Guadalupe--the Goddess of the Americas, in disguise (barely!)--Her holy day in the Catholic church is soon. But it's taken me a while to figure out why. Do you know Her story? It's a good one! (And most of the best parts get left out!) Here's the super short version: Juan Diego, a native man, was on his way to town when a woman appeared bathed in light. It was a hard time, his culture was under siege. The Spanish had come and were wreaking havoc everywhere. He was not looking to see

Deepen Your Spiritual Practice: Rosary Beads

2021-12-07T23:15:13+00:00

If you've been around for even a little bit, you know how profoundly the Rosary practice entered my life and work this year...I've been passionate about sharing it with you. As I've deepened into the Magdalene Rosary, I've longed to have tools to bring this spiritual practice seamlessly into our lives. I've been finding the natural depth and rhythm of the prayer is enhanced by fingering the beads. The tactile embodied experience is luscious and stilling. I love gemstones, crystals, and sacred oils. (What's not to love?) and I love bracelets. So I've created 2 styles of Wrist Rosaries

What Mainstream Culture Isn’t Saying About This Time

2021-04-22T22:02:31+00:00

We seem to be in a time where the old ways don't work, as they have in the past. Planning, plotting, time and scheduling seems particularly amiss. While the old methods won't work, the new way is not fully on-line yet. But like all transitions, it's not always smooth or easy-peasy. There are gaps and glitches. Frustrations that what we're used to doing, no longer does. (Sometimes its not available--completely absent--other times, the old tools are visible, but not functional as they once were.) Either way, massive challenges and heart ache result. These are rough, untended initiations. Looking outside, we

Are You Teetering In and Out of Balance?

2021-04-22T22:11:51+00:00

We’re at the turn of the wheel, goddess. Signs of spring, like daffodils and tulips blooming and Equinox this weekend. Oh, and the 1 year anniversary of the shutdown of the pandemic. Yeah, that. While most people acknowledge the upside of all that’s happened, I'm noticing so many lately feeling vaguely (or wildly) out of sorts. There’s a stirring sense of unease. You might be feeling a sense of exhaustion that’s not quite mental, physical “issues” more present, maybe a sense of malaise, dread, despair, or loneliness. That sense that “something’s not quite right” but what? We’ve all been
