If there is one thing that most of us can probably agree upon it is that these are challenging and unpredictable times - both personally and globally. Psycholanalyst and author Clarissa Pinkola Estes has written a powerful prayer that invites us to let what knocks us down in life also be our teacher.Read More
In this tincture conversation, Suzanne Anderson and Kim Carpenter explore this juicy topic. A collective shift in consciousness seems to be happening for women these days and igniting many to 'do what is theirs to do' and start their own businesses. What is that about? ...Read More
I recently had the pleasure of joining life coach and colleague Jodi Flynn on her show Women Taking the Lead. She has created a uniquely engaging format in her conversations, where she asks her guests to not only speak about their professional expertise but to also speak candidly about humble beginnings and how we played small at some point...Read More
Poetry is one of my favorite languages, connecting the heart and the mind in ways that stir the soul. I use poems to inspire women to awaken their innate potentiality - a potentiality that I call Mysterial. Mysterial Women are able to weave together all of their Feminine and Masculine strengths as elegantly and powerfully as poetry does.Read More
In the mid to late nineties, I was leading the European office for my Toronto based consulting firm. We were smack in the middle of a huge corporate culture shift program with IBM, who was learning to become more nimble to adjust for the new computer kids on the block, like Microsoft. The corporate leadership culture was required to shift dramatically from hierarchical, more Masculine command and control styles to much more flexible and inclusive Feminine approaches that allowed for empowered actions further down in the organization.Read More
One of the more feminine models is that of collaboration, and so I am inviting you to join me in consciously sourcing our fellow Mysterial Women.
You, and the others who expressed interest in learning and living in the Way of the Mysterial Woman, have stepped into a curiosity of your Mysterial emergence; together we are beginning to form a kind of energetic beacon which will draw the other women toward us.
I recently had the pleasure of discussing the "inner lizard" with my good friend and colleague Martha Hamilton, author of the new book "Going Reptile: How Engaging Your Inner Lizard Leads to More Fulfilling Work and Personal Relationships."Read More
Women have the tremendous opportunity to become agents of creative change in the face of the uncertain and unknown. The potential within us to bring forth a new way of being is coming to the surface, and we’re being guided to nurture it into bloom.Read More
I have long considered poetry to be one of the languages of the Mysterial Woman. It brings together the more masculine use of words, with the more feminine imaginal. The weaving together of those two ways of knowing is one of the potent elements of the language of poetry. It addresses both the spoken and not spoken - evoking that which is between the lines.Read More
The final Archetype in The Mysterial Sequence, The Chrone helps us to be with what is completely – open to the Mystery and waiting for all the pieces to arrive before stepping forward. This allows us to have an open heart and to be with heartbreak—our own suffering and the suffering of others...Read More
This is the gate through which we come into belonging, into the community, and into our 'fit' with society - if we can heal the wound of trying too hard to belong, or rebellion against the current structures...Read More
This vlog is the first of a 5 Part Series on The Mysterial Sequence. The first of five gates in this sequence is 'The Mother'. Since it’s so foundational, it’s even finding it's way into the mainstream now...Read More
Today we honor women and girls and our right to be fully ourselves - to know that we are enough, that we are empowered to do what is ours to go, that we belong, that it is safe to express ourselves fully, and that we are an evolving channel of wisdom love and power.Read More
Mysterial women are emerging now to bring profound new ways of being, that engage both our Feminine and Masculine strengths, into manifestation in the world.
Money is one of the core languages of exchange in the world. One that is important for you to explore personally and one that is important for us collectively to reinvent.Read More
One thing that I imagine many of us can agree upon right now is that we are being broken open by these times. There is a lot of talk about the need for RESISTANCE to what seems to be a reversing of years of progress for women and culture itself. I certainly agree that we will need to stand firm around many things that matter to us and be willing to take actions that we have been complacent about before. In this sense we will need to resist the tendency to remain quiet or sit back and wait for someone else with more knowledge, connections or influence to take care of the world.Read More
Listen carefully and perhaps you will hear your future self, reaching back through time and space whispering...You were born for these very times. Do not be afraid. Have faith in what you cannot yet see. Ignite your courage and commitment to keep on walking forward even as the fog thickens and the sky darkens. The future generations of tomorrow are counting on you today.Read More
I believe that women have an adaptive advantage right now to be agents of change in the world. Like Mary in the moment of this Annunciation painting we are being asked to take the future right into our wombs. To say YES to the BIG CALLS THAT COUNT. To say YES to letting the seeds of possibility be planted in our bodies and hearts, even if we do not know how we will bring them to fruition. To say YES to being a woman on the edge of evolution with the courage and leadership capacity to give birth to her FULL self and to a world that works for all.Read More
