The Voice of the Feminine in 2018

The year 2017 was a year of transformation in my life including the deepening of my healing path blessed with love and partnership. All unfolded in the midst of the collective shadow surfacing, affecting our nation’s environmental, social, and political landscape. I pray to stay rooted and open, to feel both the joys and sorrows of living, to let the difficulties open our hearts rather than close them. I pray that the suffering we experience and witness wakes up the power of our voice and the sense of agency latent in our hearts.

This new year, I continue to feel the call to more fully inhabit myself, to open to the magic of nature as I venture into the unknown and soften to receive its many powers. Growing roots in a different land turns me more deeply towards the magic that unfolds and reveals itself when I follow trails of inspiration leading me on a path to the heart of all creation. New life invites us to risk who we are for who we might become. But we must give it our all.

I have been meditating on how to awaken to the magic that is already here, finding ways to lift the veils of separation inhibiting our experience of oneness within the exquisite multiplicity of our world. But alas, this sense of magic seems elusive, a foreign language, an ancient memory. Magic is the realm of the feminine. In a masculine world that praises control and expresses that which is linear, rational, productive, rigid and loud, how can we reveal the space for feminine flow that is organic, silky, wild, nourishing, intuitive, sensual and mysterious? What can we do to change the narrative that oppresses the feminine and activate that dormant part of us that can sense magic and sacredness all around?

Emptying out on a regular basis cleanses our lenses, lightens our heart, clears away the dust. Shedding and letting go of what no longer serves our life force allows us to trust, to risk, and dance with life, more fully, more joyfully. Slowing down invites us to inhabit a stillness that gives birth to our feminine nature ready to bless our relationships, our spaces, our offerings. Integrating art as a practice connects us to our souls. May nourishing the deepest parts of us give rise to wonderful creations. And may we remember to be kind to ourselves, each other, and this sacred Earth, Pachamama.

From the depths of women who feel the call of the feminine rises the voice of the Earth. It is an ancient voice, primal, dark, fertile flowing like a serpent from the womb, reclaiming the power of the land, moon, and stars.

To all our relations with love, aho mitakuye oyasin

Everyday flow of gratitude

“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.” ~ Meister Eckhart I recently had an important conversation on the nature of thanksgiving, which reminded of my article “Pachamama illuminating Thanksgiving.” A little boy in the place where I volunteer brought up some painful memories to the surface. The details of…

Bees, honey, and the flow of life

bees, honey and life

“Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.” ~ Mary Oliver Bees and everything they represent are endangered. Our precious bees won’t live to tell their tale if we continue to dwell in unconscious ways. We are experiencing an increase in toxicity in our environments and a decline in biodiversity: birds, insects, wildflowers, bats, etc. The…

Your Spirited Flesh

“Re-examine all you have been told at school, or church, or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul; and your very flesh shall be a great poem, and have the richest fluency, not only in its words, but in the silent lines of its lips and face, and between the lashes of your…

Edgewalkers of flow

courageous new born duckling

There is a good thing on top of that mountain. I will make a straight line for it.” But the archetypal way is not like that; it is a serpentine way that wriggles and spirals its way to the top. We often feel defeated by it and brought to a standstill. It makes most people…

Crystals of kaleidoscopic light

Fall is the season of turning inwards, of savoring the lessons, the messages, the harvesting of the soul digesting life. In Taoism and Feng Shui, the element of fall is metal, so you may feel naturally drawn to the beauty of these crystals around this time of the year. They inspire us to find the depth, clarity, focus and discipline to diligently pursue our dreams.

Pachamama illuminating Thanksgiving


This is a post I wrote last year, which I am grateful to share with you again today; it offers a different angle on Thanksgiving day. A day of gratitude is a beautiful thing but ignorance is not bliss. We got much to shift, realign, liberate, both on a personal and collective level. From an…

The great full moon release. The freedom to heal our imperialist Mentality

Freedom. the full moon release of imperialist mentality

It is often those difficult feelings that wake me up to deeper layers of awareness & surrender, to a vision ushering a new reality. So much about our work is unearthing lost treasures, questioning our assumptions, re-envisioning an ancient future. My words are birds seeking freedom, echoing an ancient song waiting to ring and flow through us all.
