Everything is truly figureoutable! I am a woman in transition, at the moment. Who else is on board that train? I imagine a LOT of us. Women are ever evolving, ever creating, ever changing. Even if we are stable in one area, there is going to be another part of our lives that requires expansion...

An adventure? Or a tragedy? This is a question I have been waking up to, and many of us have been waking up to, pretty regularly as of late. Escalating racism, xenophobia, anti-LGBTQ attitudes, gun violence, and intolerance in our country and the world, have hit me, and many of us, like daggers of grief...

After 21 years of teaching Womanly Arts Mastery in New York City, I decided the graduating class of June 2019 would be the last to learn from me in that format. I’m not finished teaching by any means…but the What’s Next is still unfolding… It was a huge decision and a deeply meaningful and heartbreakingly...

We all have times of intense transition. Times of our lives when we have to seriously step up, step down, step aside, step back, or step ahead. Not simple stuff! How many times have you stayed too long in a relationship that was never going to work out? Or, conversely, how many times have you...

Happy International Women’s Day, sister. In my world, every single day is International Women’s Day. Slogging, sashaying and twerking up the feminist highway in celebration of women, it’s how I have chosen to spend my life. So, I often just ignore the day and slog and twerk along, in my usual fashion. But this year,...

Picture this. It was session four of The Womanly Arts Experience weekend. 950 women had been together for two full days, each of them delving deeply into all of what it means to be a woman. Together, we were celebrating our magnificence, plugging into our radiance, plunging into our darkness, and reveling in our power....

Everything worth having starts with desire. A few weeks ago, I wrote to you about how I planted the seeds for my relationship with my partner, Peter. And those of you who track with me on the regular know that intimate relationships do not come easily to me. From earliest memories, for very good reasons,...

Like oh so many of us, I am in the midst of another huge personal transformation. Transformations can look so many ways. Graduating from university. Beginning divorce proceedings. Shifting from one career to another. Having a baby. Sending a baby to college. Getting fired. Starting a business. Menarche or menopause. Women are amazing. We go...

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. Which is interesting. Because, as women,...
