Sistering. It’s a verb that most of us have not considered very much. And yet all of us have been both negatively and positively impacted by the relationships we have with other women. How well have you sistered? Or been sistered? Do you have a deep fear of other women? Or do you long for...

I had this incredible experience a couple of weeks ago. I got to totally see myself from the other side. Kind of like that moment in It’s a Wonderful Life when the angel gives George a tour of what life would have been like without him. (If you haven’t seen this movie, you will have...

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...

One of the most powerful organizing principles and pursuits at The School of Womanly Arts is the sacred and crucial task of connecting a woman to the importance and the innate power of her desires.

How good does it make you feel when you experience an incredible moment of synchronicity? You are thinking about an old friend, or an old lover, and — boom! — they call you! Or you run into each other at a coffee shop! You just know you are in flow. And there is nothing that...
