Is it just me?  Or are we living in a world full of hair-triggered, simmering, hitting-the-panic-button, frustrated, angry, scared, desperate human beings – myself included? We are in the midst of a massive shedding – breaking and transmuting generations of malignant, broken, patriarchal-world-culture ways of being. It is so hard.   I have never boxed...

I have always been out there. Utterly unique. Outside the box. Not normal. And guess what? So have you. The dictionary definition of normal is “conforming with, adhering to, or constituting a norm, standard, pattern, level, or type; typical.” Nope, there is nothing normal about a woman. Not one thing. We are born gifted. Incredibly...

I reach into a box, and pull out a pair of pink, thigh-high, glitter boots. And crumble. Weeping in grief. These boots and I made a lot of magic together. These were the boots I scoured the internet for, in order to fulfill a vision and create an opportunity for women to reimagine themselves as...

What if you knew, from the time that you were a babe, that your body was sacred? A source of power? A change agent? I have often wondered what that would be like. Most women I know, including myself, have struggled to find the beauty and value in our bodies. Most of us were raised...

Daily, we swirl in limitations, strife, racial injustice, economic and social inequity, overt systemic misogyny, declining leadership – all against the backdrop of an unrelenting global pandemic. We can’t help but ask the questions: Who am I? What am I doing? Where is my community? My...

This is what I know: The very first thing there is to do. The very first thing. When devastation happens – it is time to grieve, and rage, and mourn. In community. In sisterhood. (Not ignore, not go numb, no matter how painful.) And that is not easy. What we feel, we can heal. And...

Five years ago, I led a weekend course at the Javits Center for about 2,000 women. I was nervous, I was excited, I was everything and then some. The second day, a woman in the second row asked me a question about the Black Lives Matter movement. And in my privilege, in my unconscious bigotry...

My heart breaks for George Floyd, his family, his community. For Christian Cooper, bird watching in Central Park. For Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency room technician, killed in her home by the Louisville police. For 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery killed while jogging in Brunswick, Georgia. For Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Atlanta, New York City, Miami, Detroit, Washington, San...

For many of us this is the defining moment of our lifetime. How will we choose to show up and respond? Our relationship to everything is changing. The world as we knew it, is crumbling. More than ever, we need to know that we can trust our deepest intuition to guide us. Now is the...

Big fat radical change is required now. You can feel it, yes? I am imagining that many of us feel this urgency, feel this calling and have a desire that is pressing on us, preoccupying us. But, for many of us, the moment we have a desire, the moment that our truest truth emerges, is...
