Confessions of a Modern Day Priestess


When I was 29 I was invited to a women’s Celtic spirituality weekend. It was a wooded enclave, in misty and mossy rural New England. We slept in tents and tepees and drank mint tea. One night, under the light of the full moon in May (yes, it was Beltane) I was initiated as a priestess. I was given the name Magdalena—which I now know as a title as much as a name. It was totally unexpected and magical, like an old memory re-surface. And I had no idea what  that meant. For years I carried that mantle of priestess secretly—mostly

Calling My Magdalene Sisters


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 Mysteries Virtual Retreat {Replay}


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

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


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.

Something Bigger Calling to You?


Bringing a vision or dream to the marketplace takes more input and energy than we can sometimes muster on our own. It requires a careful balance of Masculine-style action (doing) with Feminine receptivity and allowing (being) to manifest our vision. Too much of the former leads to to exhaustion or burn-out, while too much of the latter leads to time passing with nothing happening. It takes finesse. Or it creates a unique kind of depression or anxiety. Confusion, illness, boredom, too. Most people somehow assume they "should" be able to manifest their soul gifts on their own, when, if you really

What’s Next for YOU? {feedback needed}


It’s been a while, and not because I’m ignoring or avoiding you. 2017 is a big year already—can you feel it?  We're rounding the end of the first quarter and spring is afoot. Whether you hate it or love it, changes are happening. The women’s marches in January were the largest gatherings EVER. Peaceful and positive, they catalyzed  a massive wave of civic engagement! Women are more activated and inspired than ever--we're ignited. Such practical expressions of the Sacred Feminine awakening in action. So many women (and men) are sensing that this is the year to step up and make

New Year – New Vision


Now that we've rounded the corner into 2017, you’ve hopefully had time to rest, reflect and digest all that happened this past year. For many, with big personal and collective challenges, it’s one we’re happy to leave behind. Last night I was completing my annual review (I shared the process with you in my last article—if you missed it, you can read here)  and I had a burst of inspiration. Have you taken the time to really harvest the gems of your year, then release 2016, and put it to rest? Have you taken time to allow in your dreams

Healing Temple Retreat Comes to the Columbia River Gorge


Do you need a real day off? …to step off the wheel, and find deep peace within yourself, that can be accessed privately, within the presence of other women? And receive a variety of healing treatments and be guided through a process of deep replenishment? How would you feel, to have a lot of silence, as well as space where you can talk about the deep and the real, without being chatty? What would it be, to enter a space where it's not about being a parent, a spouse, a public figure, an employer/employee... but about being a woman, and what it is

Ever Feel Like You’re Lost in The Forest?


Deeper Questions for Resolving Transitions   I feel like there’s something more or different that I’m supposed to be doing, but I don’t know what it is….what’s my next step? Ever feel that way? I know I have, and even recently. I’ve written previously about life changes since moving: leaving community after 20+ years, moving from one bio-region to another. From having a “normal” life (in a house) to living 24/7 in a boutique hotel that we own. (Don’t get me wrong, it’sa cool hotel.) It’s been a big transition. Duh. Huge tectonic rumblings have been occurring in my body/soul/psyche
