Nourishment & Refuge To Master This Moment

2020-06-30T21:09:30+00:00

I've written you 3 times this week, sister, but never hit send. Unwilling to clog your space with anything remotely pandering performative, or self-serving. This historic moment (#BLM) we're in requires something deeper of us. And while the changes that are happening are long overdue, it's not easy, either. There's so much to cope with: personal, planetary, social, cultural, institutional... We're really dregging through the dross. All levels of our beings are impacted. There is no "going back to normal"-- amen to that. And yet (for white women, if you are one) there's a great paradox. Women have been

New Tool: Find Calm & Hope in the Storm

2020-04-15T19:11:35+00:00

Sweet Sister... We are in a time of unprecedented changes: chaos for some, hope and possibility for others. Where are you in the dance? With so much "distancing", we’re home, and online for everything. The very nature of the electronic world plus social and mass media stresses our nervous systems. If we allow it, we're exposed to fear of the future and survival issues. With this comes immense moments of anger, grief, loss, and fear. (Plus joy, possibility and excitement, too.) Feel what’s yours (this is not a moment for premature transcendence) and move through it. But don’t attach

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

Drop Deeper into Summer Soul Surrender

2019-08-30T17:51:27+00:00

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. Gathering in sisterhood is a huge source of strength, it's where our magic

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,

Sisterhood Supper Changes

2019-05-01T21:18:16+00:00

Sister, Some times things are moving so fast, I’m not sure what I’ve shared. But these changes I want you to know about. Sisterhood Supper was created as a space for open ended dialogue and connection among women. A chance to meet other women in our community, from near and far. It’s been great fun, for the most part. But truthfully, sometimes it’s missed the mark for me. Other times it’s so rich and soul nourishing--the women who come get great value. I’ve been wondering how to amplify that. I’ve been feeling that Sisterhood Supper needs a re-boot. A more

Managing the Unmanageable

2018-10-10T19:58:34+00:00

Oh sister... I awoke this morning thinking of you. I've got a few ideas... Oy, what a hot time we're in. Sure, the world looks the same on the outside, day to day--with birds singing and sun shining--yet after this weekend's vote in US Congress, inside many of us are burning and broiling inside. Women feel dismissed, abused, discarded. (Magdalene qualities, btw.) And DONE with it! Most of us feel like running away from the current white male-dominant, abusive leadership we're witnessing. I can understand why. Others think this is over-reaction, and want the whole thing to blow over and

{Temple Reflections} Unforeseen Gifts

2018-10-05T19:19:36+00:00

A deep heady scent of Spikenard greeting each woman as she arrived to Temple Sophia. Anointed, one by one, women of various background, age and experience entered the circle. Inhaling deeply, relaxing fully, she found her seat in the garnet room and settled in to the journey. As thirteen of us began, sisters shared what brought them to the circle…. what their intentions for being there were. After all, there are many things begging for attention in our lives these days. And all of these women are teachers, healers and leaders in their own right, so what was calling them
