Has anyone ever told you to just get out there and FEEL? FEEL loudly? WEEP uncontrollably? RAGE like an angry lioness? HOWL like a bitch in heat? Cry MORE? SCREAM your head off? What women have been trained, taught and conditioned, their whole lives, is to turn down the volume and velocity of their emotions...

Have you ever felt so done in? That you just could not. Not even. One more step. I mean, really. See if you can find yourself here: “I am utterly depleted. How do I keep my sex life alive with my husband, when I am so burnt out from work, and kids?” “I am constantly...

This Valentine’s day I’m thinking a lot about sisterhood. And the tender, irreplaceable, fierce love that’s possible and necessary between women. I fly close with my flock.

Whew. Wow. We did it.   Welcome to a brand New Year, my darlings. 2017 is here. And so many of us are thinking– perhaps now, more than ever—about what to make of it.   What do we want to accomplish, discover, create, become? ‘Tis the season, when we women are encouraged to fiercely scribble...

If I were to drill down to the very bluest part of the flame, the hottest truest mission of The School of Womanly Arts, it’s about feminine leadership. It is my conviction that women are the greatest untapped natural resource on the planet. Feminine leadership is the medicine so desperately required by this world, at...

My first response was “I can’t.” It was November 9th, the results of our election were incredibly fresh, and just three days later, I was to lead the Fall session of The Womanly Arts Experience, with 900 women. I felt wallopped. And I thought to myself, “I cannot do this.” I cannot stand powerfully in front...

What does it mean to be a success? In your own eyes? How do you know when enough is enough?  A couple months ago, I was watching the news when Hillary Clinton stumbled as she left the 9/11 memorial, because she had walking pneumonia.  It reminded me of the story in Arianna Huffington’s book about...
