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...

The single most profound change that I am noticing amongst women, today, is a more overtly shared experience of something that happened to me, as a child. ​​​​​​​ And continues to happen to me now, as an adult. And, if you are reading this note, I am certain it happens both to you, and for...

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...

I want to check in with you, with all of us: How’s your energy? Are you bouncing through the day, boundless and joyful? Or slugging it… Getting-it-all-done, but feeling depleted, running on fumes. (Maybe more than others know because you put a smile on it.) I meet a lot of fume-runners. Wanna know why? Because...

I believe that everyone — every single person — has at least one really really good book inside of them. Not all of these great reads will get written. Some will get put off and put off and put off and … Writer’s block will claim others. Lack of confidence will stop millions. Or lack...

Have you ever been faced with a decision that hog-tied you hard and left you on the railroad tracks with an oncoming train in the distance? Change is coming for you. You know there is a step to be taken and you just don’t know which way to roll. Oh, the agony. The thing about...

Are you living a life that feels like yours? All yours? Is it an expression of what you value? Of what you love? Of who you are? No? Or … not quite sure? Because you’re too busy surviving. And serving. And being responsible. And just getting through. To pay mind to what you want. And...
