So you’re stuck, huh? Have you tied yourself into a big fat twisted stuck-knot? Ugh. It’s the worst. Stuck is everywhere. And there are so many ways for it to show up . . . Stuck in a 26 year marriage, and it feels suffocating, sexless, and numb. Stuck because her whole life, she’s had...

After watching the Golden Globes the other night, I just had to check out the film BOYHOOD.

One of the first things that happens for a woman when she engages in sisterhood is a sense of connection with women, everywhere. Do you feel it? I am so grateful, daily, for the support and love we generate for one another inside this community. And today, in the midst of this holiday season, I...

I have been playing creation games with my daughter, Maggie. She’s in high school and I think it’s time that she understood the power she, and all women, have. It’s time she apprehends the visceral power of desire. I want her to learn that she has the power to attract whatever she wants. But I also...
