Naked Faces, Illegal Hugs & last call for 20% off sale

I took this selfie last summer, when I was experimenting with wearing a face mask due to a troublesome allergy reaction. How eerily prophetic that less than a year later, we are all wearing face masks. I have come to take a lot for granted. I believe we’re all waking up to that fact. I’ve …

The ruby slippers and 20% off

The famous poet T.S. Eliot wrote in his poem, The Waste Land, that “April is the cruelest month,” but this year, I’d have to say in the United States, it was March. Even though Covid-19 was raging in China in January, it seems we didn’t grasp the enormity of the pandemic until March, when we …

Death, Strength & a 20% off SALE

Perhaps if you’re like me, some days you are waking up in denial and other days you are waking up with low-level uneasiness, anxiety, or abject fear.

It …

On Mothering

In the 25 years of doing shamanic healing, I’ve worked with a great many people who needed to find peace within the relationship with their mother. Whether a mother is alive or deceased, biological mother or adoptive, and whether the child is young or grown-up, the mother-child relationship is a sacred, often complicated quest. I …

Uncertainty During Transformation

I don’t have to tell you that life is quite uncertain. Most everyone I know is struggling with the external challenges of rapid change going on now in the world. We see challenges in our government, perhaps in our relationships, in our communities, and (hopefully) within our flowering hearts. We are in the midst of …

Where Is The Stuckness In You?

As I write this, during the evening of January 24, our federal government is still stuck in a big, ugly quagmire of polarization. It was a disappointing day when the votes were tallied, and a bill wasn’t passed that would end the shutdown. We’re witnessing a massive battle among those with power, our elected representatives, …
