{Temple Replay} Solstice Deepening

2020-01-23T21:03:32+00:00

We're heading into the luscious dark quiet of the year. I wanted to drop in before we go deep into the blur of Christmas and New Year holidays to send love and a gift. Solstice is here and always so luscious for me. Always a deep time of review and reflection, completing this year and receiving the next. A pause. But for some it's full frenzy. I hope that's not you, but if it is...Take this time for you. You're worth it. To start the deepening process, we gathered for a virtual retreat on Facebook, Tuesday--a virtual Rose Temple

Guadalupe as Goddess: Hiding in Plain Sight

2020-01-23T20:42:34+00:00

One thing I know, is that history is written by the winners.*  And as I’ve studied religion (which is highly political), especially. And yet we each have the capacity to touch the deeper Truths, through our heart and soul. It’s imperative, to find our own way, apart from the maddening crowd. The practices I use guided me to write The Magdalene Path—and to make daily decisions about my work and life. (I honestly don’t know how people function without this guidance, it brings such clarity and solace. ) I’ve long had a deep affection for Our Lady Guadalupe, “the

Finding Solace and Hope

2020-01-23T20:15:53+00:00

Life has been very interesting lately and I'm guessing I'm not the only one. I wrote this before a recent retreat, but neglected to hit "send." I love the journey inward of Autumn. Patterns that have been challenging in the past--things we thought we completed--seem to be back and highlighted. (Oh goody?) Recent cycles have made patterns and habits that are outmoded and worn out impossibly maddeningly clear. I took a sabbatical week (Is that even a thing??) and made a nest in my bedroom so that I could rest, reflect and re-balance. I dug into soul care and

Are You Ready to Embody Your Feminine Soul?

2019-08-30T18:15:56+00:00

My deepest desire is for you to feel the divine flowing to and through you, creating a life of ease, grace and flow. It's your birthright. I long for you and your daughters, nieces and neighbor-girls to feel your innate divinity through your own awake, aligned connection to the Source (Spirit, God, Goddess, whatever you want to call it). Open the lines of connection with your Divine guidance from your highest & deepest feminine soul. And living from that place, everyday. Ready for a Deeper Soul Connection? There’s a stream of wisdom that’s connected to Divine and embodied and in the

{Temple Replay} Gather Under the Full Moon

2020-01-23T20:32:25+00:00

I had a "be brave moment" yesterday. I offered a Women's Temple on-line, using Facebook LIVE. Yikes! Did you catch it? Life isn't always neat and tidy, and this week has felt like a wild ride. The Full Moon woke me at 4 am. So potent and beautiful! So doing this didn't make logical sense, but I felt I HAD TO. You have those moments of inspired action, too, don't you? Since it's my second Facebook Live it's far from perfect. Grab a cuppa tea or wine and watch your free on-line women’s temple. It's pinned on The Magdalene

What Is The Divine Feminine, And Why Is It Important?

2019-08-30T18:01:18+00:00

Lately I’m so aware that globally (and even in this fine land) most women still don’t feel safe and sacred in daily life. Things are better in the western world—if you’re a white woman—but for others here and around the planet, the state of being female is abysmal. In some lands, it's close to slavery. You think I exaggerate? Imagine spending 7 to 18 hours a day (!!) on life activities like gathering water and wood for cooking over fire, then cleaning up without running water. Exhausting! Imagine needing your husband’s (or father’s) permission to go outside or talk to another

Why Magdalene Matters After All These Years

2019-08-30T17:52:08+00:00

Old Stories, Reclaimed Truth: Awakening Feminine Soul Power As the sun sets on Mary Magdalene's Feast Day, I’ve been musing all day on her power and how her story shapes us via culture. Regardless of your spiritual tradition, her story impacts women: our spirituality, sexuality, empowerment and leadership. Even if this not your tradition, here’s something to consider. Sometimes (dare I say, often) women are portrayed in history in a way that isn't true. Over time, the mis-truths get embedded as Truth in the minds of millions. With Mary Magdalene the lies have lasted over 1500 years! How and why

Oh, sweet summertime bliss! The garden of our life is coming into full ripeness now. As we edge towards Summer Solstice later this month everything seems to be in bloom, in and around us. Midsummer is a great time to pause in the busyness of it all and observe.... What is full, ripe and overflowing? Where are you experiencing abundance? Sister, Summer is meant to be a season of celebration and rejoicing. If you find yourself too busy to give yourself this, relax. It's easier together.

Tips: Soul Blooming & Manifestation in Summertime

2019-08-30T17:38:09+00:00

Oh, sweet summertime is upon us, sister! As I sit on my deck to write you, the heady scent of blossoms fill the air, a warm breeze glances by, a cacophony of birdsong greets me. Bright toes in sandals, jumping in a cool creek, chilled fruity cocktails with dinner cooked outdoors in the waning evening sunshine… what’s not to love? (cottonwood fluff and 90+ days, aside…) I’ve always loved summer...and my birthday in June adds to the delight. But it's hard to believe we’re almost halfway through this year…how did that happen!? As we edge towards Summer Solstice later this

Reflections on Rose Temple

2019-05-09T20:32:04+00:00

I always mean to take pics. Maybe with your inner eyes you can see: The altar is lovely, with flowers, stones and ephemera from sisters offering. A lovely new altar cloth initiated into use. Candles lit, waning sun streaming into our ruby library at the Balch Hotel. The heady scents of Rose and Spikenard oils. Eleven women entering the mystery, anointed at the goddess gateway, in various shades and degrees of goddess wear. The bashful and bold. A circle of sisters deep and engaged, hungry for a sense of the sacred, sharing connection, together. A mix of ages and backgrounds,
