Not long ago, an unexpected letter came in to The School of Womanly Arts and it took our breath away. We asked Mary Jo if we could share her story with other women, and she generously agreed. Here it is: At five and perhaps earlier, I somehow began to believe I wasn’t okay. I believed...

Here’s the routine: I wake up, put on the coffee, light the candles on my altar, pray, dance, journal, and then make an oat milk latte. ​​​​​​​ I am centered and grounded, inhaling the fragrance of the coffee. Warmed on the inside by each sip. Ready to meet the challenges of my day. But, a...

How sensual are you feeling right now? I will give you a hint; if you are repulsed by the question — and a majority of women reading this will be repulsed or made uncomfortable by this question — then, you are somewhat (or totally) cut off from your sexy.

The conversations that we are having as women are changing with such velocity.

It is time for women to power...

It is not easy to get centered. Especially now. A trip through the headlines can whip us all around the whirligig. Not to mention the sheer daily brutality of living in a patriarchal world culture. If we don’t buckle up our protective gear, before we head out, we can get pierced by a stray arrow....

How does pain show up in your body? Do you stop when you feel it, and express it, in the moment? Or do you do a pain bypass and suck it up and move on, and ‘get over it,’ as if nothing actually happened to you? Or maybe you are more like me, and you...

Hope is such a bitch. Sometimes she is just a walk in the park. Things are easy, things are breezy. And sometimes it’s not easy. And there is no breeze. It’s just dust and tumbleweeds. And it feels like you are the last one standing. She will test you and work you and twist you...

I was getting a coffee when the news blasted this report: “The storm of a lifetime!” I know so many of us are in it. Truly in, in it. Big time. You, me and Florence. And Isaac, Helene, Barijat, Joyce, and Mangkhut. We’re in a swirl of hurricanes, typhoons, tropical depressions of the real and...
