Do you put yourself last?

January 17, 2017

Where do you fall on the scale of priorities in your life? Do you put yourself first? Or last? Would you cancel your plans with friends if your boss asked you to work late? Do you invest in yourself? Or give your all to others? Do you know how harmful that is? OK, I admit […]

Leadership is an inside game.

December 12, 2016

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 […]

This is not a time to run away

November 29, 2016

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 […]

Sex ed? More please.

August 10, 2016

  I was at a dinner party with a gang of gals a couple weeks ago. Several of these women were in the process of raising teenagers. And of course, after a while, our conversation turned to sex. Specifically, the challenges of raising teens in a porn-infused world, where any kid who can use google […]

Violence flourishes without the feminine.

July 27, 2016

  There are things I know how to do. When a kid falls and scrapes her knee, I am so good for picking her up and soothing her, whether she’s mine or someone else’s. When a friend needs emotional support, I’m 100% there. But when I read the news these days, I feel kicked in the […]

Overloaded with “shoulds”? This can help.

June 29, 2016

  Just a few weeks ago, one of my students was asking me how the heck is a gal supposed to stay inside her beautiful, beguiling, creative, endlessly renewing feminine nature, while living in a rip-roaringly masculine, gotta-get-it-done patriarchal world that encourages us to set goals and hit them out of the park, and all […]

Beyonce, Paris, and the messy truth of creation.

May 11, 2016

There is a part of creation that hurts. That could seem humiliating. Or embarrassing.   Creation is … chaotic. Feminine. Co-operating with forces, more than rules. Raw. Risky. Fueled by passion. Making no sense, sometimes. Choosing into a living, breathing truth that may be utterly unrecognizable to others.   I had my ass blown every-which-way-wide open […]

“I am a survivor.”

March 2, 2016

I draw courage from the stories of women who have courage. I draw strength from learning from women who have overcome the insurmountable. I transmute when I hear of a woman who has remade herself, cellularly. The fire in my belly busted into a wildfire when I heard Annette’s story. And the very same thing […]

How to survive Tinder

January 27, 2016

  It’s a jungle out there, sisters. A jungle, a swamp, a black hole—and just about as comfortable as being stuck in traffic. For many hours. With no GPS. Actually, a real jungle is way more hospitable than the Tinder jungle. At least it’s natural. And the rules makes sense. Yet, one in 10 of […]

Of love, Princess, and the passage of time.

November 4, 2015

I never really wanted a dog. I am more of a cat person – the coming, the going, the ignoring you, the keeping-their-distance thing was way more my style. I value independence. But, raising a single child as a single mother in the city that has more single people than families, that has lots of […]
