It’s Here…SisterSoul Salon Virtual Retreat

2015-10-14T08:04:55+00:00

Virtual SisterSoul Salon…Is Here! It's finally time. It's crazy to realize it's almost 2 years since I published The Magdalene Path. I've gotten such amazing feedback from so many of you. And I consistently hear that it brings up a lot of thoughts, feelings, memories and ideas, so I figured its  time to gather and explore.  A virtual space for women to connect who want to go deeper into The Magdalene Path. Last spring, before we moved to The Balch Hotel, I was offering these Sister Soul Salon evenings  in my home, for just this purpose. Many of you wanted to

Embodying the New Eve + Insider Invite

2015-10-08T08:00:59+00:00

What if We Got Her Story All Wrong?   With autumn upon us, thoughts turn to changing leaves and Fall Harvest….apples, pumpkins, etc.  How timely that Bella Mia magazine has just released our latest issue, The Truth About Eve, featuring that iconic apple-wielder herself. (With a gorgeous photo of Southern Oregon's Renee Jeffus on the cover—yum!) So I wanted to send you my article, Embodying the New Eve, (which I’ve excerpted for you below). It's by far the most edgy confrontation of traditional beliefs that I’ve written for mainstream press. It excites and terrifies meto share it with you. This whole issue really bumps up against cultural

BIG Shifts Emerge

2014-10-28T09:18:00+00:00

A few weeks back I alluded to some big changes that will change my world as I know it. Gulp. REALLY big. I  notice I'm not alone in this. My brilliant friend and colleague Tomar Levine (SoulGuidanceforYourBusiness.com) writes, "Transformation alert! This is a big one! The New Moon last week is no ordinary new moon. It coincides with a partial Solar Eclipse, a heavy-duty cosmic event with effects lasting as long as 6 months to a year. "...this is all happening in the sign of Scorpio, signfiying transformation, death and rebirth, deep feeling, and exposing the hidden. Softening the effects of this “dark feminine” water sign is

A Honest Moment

2014-09-24T06:59:12+00:00

A few months ago I gathered a circle of women in my local area who were hungry for more meaning, connection, creativity and sacred space at SisterSoul Salon. (I offered this only to those of you on my local list, so if you didn't see this, that's why.) it was a big hit--lI even added a second gathering to accommodate everyone.The  ladies loved it, It was clear that they wanted more: they told me so!  But I wasn't ready to hear it. (I had a new juicy program to offer and I was excited about it.) I was so intent

Taking the Medicine Again

2014-07-01T08:36:32+00:00

Here we are, Independence Day--beyond hot dogs, flags and fireworks, what is it really? It’s that day in the US when we celebrate our separation from an archaic, monarchic system and started to create something new, different, egalitarian and self-governed. A more expansive way to lead a nation. Regardless of our opinion of it now, we can step back and see what a cool and courageous experiment this really was. How do we take this leading edge impulse for freedom and creative leadership into our lives now? Maybe because it’s summer, I’m noticing many are feeling this call for freedom,

Great Loss? Or Gain?

2014-06-20T11:53:39+00:00

As we sit at the Summer Solstice I'm feeling blessed, after co-leading a delicious ritual workshop, so I wanted to share some Soul food from The Magdalene Path that might be relevant for you right now. I've got a super special announcement--look for that in a day or two. Until then, here's an excerpt from Chapter 3, The Path of The Divine Feminine, and a Practice to take it into your life. Great Loss Mary Magdalene says, "With the loss of the Divine Feminine, the Divine Masculine lost his partner/consort. He lost his balance and his Self in the Divine deism

This Might Be You? (or Someone You Know?)

2014-06-08T20:35:18+00:00

I Don't Usually Talk About This, But.... Wow, last week brought synchronicity with several of completions that made me realize something. I’m pretty awed by what I heard, which inspired me to share. These women are awesome, and yet what they were struggling with was anything but. And they are not alone. I've been there, maybe you or someone you know has too. As we paused at the end of her coaching series, one client who just left a 30 year relationship shared this: “I felt like a child in my newly single life. I was lost, confused, afraid and

Mortgaging Your Present for Future Joy?

2014-04-01T11:57:14+00:00

Wow, it’s been a wild ride since the middle of the month, huh? Many of us sense that we are really at a tipping point. We just entered a New Moon. It is becoming more clear where we are in alignment with our soul-selves and our purpose, and where we are not. And guess what? All the stuff that is challenging right now? Too much on your plate? Not in alignment.  Is your life looking like a bad dream, or someone else’s idea of an ideal life? (Not bad, but not spectacular, either?) I know how that happens! I’ve been

Are You Ready For A Quantum Leap?

2014-02-27T13:00:31+00:00

I wiggle and squirm as I attempt to sit in meditation this morning. Some days it’s easier than others to do my morning practices. Why do I want to open my email more than I want to connect in stillness and silence with the Divine? Why does it seem so difficult sometimes? I know the inevitable result when I don’t: fear, worry, darkness and confusion about my path, my life—dreary moods. I settle in and allow myself to being present in my body—my breath slows too. My mind follows. I hear the voice of my higher guidance, “Be still, your
