My conversation with Sheila Sutherland of Reignite Your Purpose spanned many topics including how women in business who are using the traditional masculine leadership style are 'burning out' at alarming rates…Read More
I recently talked with Jana DeCristofaro on the Grief Out Loud podcast about my story of surviving the loss of my husband. In my interview, I discuss the "shame swamp" that surrounds those who are connected to someone who commits suicide and the process of falling apart before you can fall together again. I hope you will take a few moments to listen.Read More
There’s a shakeup going on for women right now. We, as women, are on the edge of evolution. We are bringing in a new wave of development. We're giving birth to this new level of our potentiality, and it’s shaking up all of the old structures.Read More
Learn 3 rituals that can change your life - quite literally. How we enter our day has everything to do with how we experience it and what we manifest. Yet far too often we don’t take the time for tuning the instrument of our being so that it is able to play the song of our hearts. Instead we roll out of bed, turn on our phones and tune into a world of information and demand all before we have any connection to ourselves.Read More
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.

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
