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
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
Yesterday was a powerful Pisces Full Moon and a Lunar Eclipse. This combination is said to stir the unconscious waters and push our deepest feelings up to the surface of awareness. Have you noticed? Not particularly comfortable! I’d like to offer you a practice from The Mysterial Sequence that is a wonderful way to work with these intense feelings and begins the process of changing our relationship to them. And like life itself it all begins with The Mother. I hope you find this helpful!Read More
Discovering that the turmoil in our lives could be an invitation to grow instead of a sign of failure is often a deep relief for women. Working with the director Martha Enson and filmmaker Alex Carillo we created a short video which makes the case for why it is so vital right now that women turn toward their suffering and longing in a community of support to awaken the Mysterial potential within.Read More
With our book – The Way of the Mysterial Woman: Upgrading How You Live, Love and Lead - about to be published on April 12th I am standing on the threshold of a very new phase of my work and life. The book is the 'pearl of great price' after twenty years of a committed exploration into how women could develop to the next level of our evolutionary potential. There have been many rewarding gifts and many heart breaking losses during this time, and I can feel it all jangling around inside as I stand here now.
And I am trembling.Read More
One of the many offerings I received as I have moved over the landscape of loss, after the sudden death of my husband, was a new level of tender compassion for myself. I was always very caring and compassionate when dealing with someone else’s suffering, but I wasn’t very patient with my own. I would often leapfrog over it to help others, not wanting to turn toward my own pain...Read More
In her recent New York Times Op-Ed piece Gail Collins outlined the Democratic presidential nomination challenge quite well. She laid out the dynamic tension between the staunch Feminist Hillary supporters, who line up behind Gloria Steinem, and the younger generation of women who don’t see in Hillary a role model they want to follow and are aligned with Bernie. ...Read More
The darkness has invaded – blasted its bloody way into the joy, pleasure and camaraderie of a Friday night in your Stade de France, your cafés and bistros, your concert hall. After living with you for many amazing years this violation rattles at the gate of the secret garden inside you awakened in me. You are the one who taught me about the beauty way, grace, sensuality, imagination and love – you showed me the face of the sacred Feminine...Read More
