Calling My Magdalene Sisters

2017-09-18T20:47:41+00:00

Beloved... A friend dropped in unexpectedly yesterday. She lives 2 hours away and showed up unannounced. She leaned in and said, ”I saw your pictures from Avalon. I want to hear about your trip. Tell me.” She practically cornered me and asked, “And what about Mary Magdalene? How does she hold missing pieces for us as women today? I know there’s more to the tale we’re told….” We talked for another hour. Or two. I shared what I knew, felt, sensed and experienced about Magdalene and Her myths, messages and meaning for modern women. And she was on her way.

Magdalene Path Course is Here!

2017-09-15T23:11:00+00:00

Beloved... For years since writing and publishing The Magdalene Path, I’ve been wanting to create an on-line course: a virtual group experience to take women into a deeper exploration and experience of the Magdalene Mysteries—the myth, metaphors and meaning of Mary Magdalene. Let’s explore why we are so drawn to Her.  And then take Her message & meaning into our own lives. I often am asked: So who was she really? Was she a prostitute, priestess or wife of Jesus? We sense that there’s more to Magdalene than the traditional Catholic story tells. And many, myself included, have been drawn

Avalon is Real, Sister!

2017-09-07T19:27:06+00:00

Hey Sister! It’s been a few weeks since I returned from my priestess pilgrimage to western England, where I spent 8 days exploring and experiencing the magic of Avalon and Glastonbury in rural western England. I hardly know what to say—which you know is rare. ;) I traveled with 19 other women, priestesses of various traditions from 9 different countries around the world. We visited and explored the sacred ancient and early-Christian sites, that have been held sacred for millennia. We entered a deep alchemical space, full of myth metaphor, ritual and magic. To say it was amazing is an

Liberation from Self Sabotage: 3 Powerful Tools

2017-08-30T23:04:09+00:00

I’m just back from my priestessing pilgrimage to Avalon, where I gathered with 19 other women from around the world to remember and reweave the lost lineage of Christ and Magdalene, the Christess. No words for all this yet, I’m still weaving in that transformational experience. (image from the Chalice Well in Glastonbury--powerful place!) Then integrating this shift with the big energy of the Great Eclipse this week. Were you in the Path of Totality? Things are different. What was no longer is. You notice it, too? In weeks to come I'll be sharing about some online experiences you can

What Do You Mean: I’m Not Creative?

2017-08-19T00:54:49+00:00

Creativity expands us in so many ways. And yet I hear all the time, "I'm not creative." Total hogwash--why would you say that about yourself? Look at all the creative problem-solving, decision-making,  and life management you do in any given day--with your kids, at work... And don't you create beauty, through those small things, little touches, in your world every week? Sure, not all of our meals or garden beds are works of art, but I bet they are sometimes. When you give it time and energy. Right? Believing in yourself as a creative spirit gives you confidence in what

Magdalene Mysteries Virtual Retreat {Replay}

2017-08-19T00:34:40+00:00

Sister ! I'm so excited! On Saturday, 13 of us gathered via video and phone to create virtual temple space together and explore the hidden lore and largely forgotten spiritual wisdom of Magdalene, on her Holy Feast Day. Here's the replay I promised, so you can enter the Temple of She. I outted my inner perfectionist and dared to do it anyway.  And imperfect it is! Join us and discover who Mary Magdalene really is, and what her message is for you. (Whether you’re Christian or not, she’s relevant now.) If you’re drawn to the mystery of the Magdalene or

Remember the Goddess in the Gospels: Magdalene Feast Day Virtual Temple Retreat!

2017-08-18T23:53:18+00:00

{Quick side note: For several months I've been intending a virtual retreat on Magdalene Feast day this weekend. But it's only just today that I'm clear and aligned with the essence and message of this invitation to you. That's a tale for another time, hard but true. So while this invite is later than I hoped, (unless you saved the date as I suggested earlier ;)  I do hope you can still join me. Read on...} Shhh…..Listen, sister….can you hear it? The sounds of bare feet padding down the temple halls. The allure of lush color, pungent fragrance, a warm

A New Archetype Arises

2017-08-18T23:43:06+00:00

I’m aware of the themes of Priestessing and Sisterhood showing up lately. And I'm exploring what it means in this post-modern age of secularism and strained Christianity. It's really a missing link in religious/spiritual life--isn't it?--the role of the priestess. My practice is to take these questions into meditation, for reflection with my divine guidance. I wondered, “What exactly is Priestessing, what am I inviting women into?” and heard this sweet reply from Mary Magdalene. “A space and sense of the sacred, in themselves and in sisterhood circles with other women. You are awakening a new power center in women

What’s Really Needed to Uplevel Your Work & Live Your Calling

Re-Aligning with Your Desire: Inside & Out Sometimes even the most inspired and aligned plans go awry. The distraction of the holiday weekend didn't allow time to adequately absorb and consider this mastermind group. So I've decided to put of the start date. Let me know if you have questions and we'll see if it's a fit for where you're at. I'm excited to work with those who jumped up and said YES, and I've got a few more spots if you're feeling moved. Bringing a Dream into Reality Maybe you're like a talented (& popular) acupuncturist I know. She

Time to Step Out & Offer More of Who You REALLY Are

2017-08-19T00:48:22+00:00

Lately I've talked with several colleagues who feel called to shift their work in big or subtle ways. See if any of this sounds familiar: One talented acupuncturist knew what she wanted to be doing, but wasn't taking action. There were lots of conflicting opinions swimming in her head. Once we addressed the internal confusion/conflict at the root, all kinds of purposeful action happened. A multi-passionate therapist I know is feeling called to something bigger inside her. She isn't clear of the details, but knows what she's doing isn't reflecting all of who she really is and what she offers.
