Sisterhood

What to do when the law of attraction isn’t working

April 23, 2019

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 […]

Who made you the woman you are?

March 8, 2019

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, […]

Unshakeable confidence is possible for you, too.

February 26, 2019

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. […]

How to get the love you want

February 12, 2019

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, […]

How to gather a pod of supportive sisters (even when you’re too busy, or too hurt)

February 5, 2019

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 […]

A reminder that ritual is real.

December 18, 2018

Here’s what I do on the daily: coffee, stretch, music, dance, light candles, and pray at my altar. That’s the morning ritual. It’s how I do. I don’t know about you, but I do not wake up a ray of sunshine. I need to move things through. Every day. (And then some.) Being a woman […]

We received an unexpected letter …

December 11, 2018

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 […]

What is that quiet voice asking you to do with this life of yours?

November 6, 2018

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 […]

Is your soul on fire? Mine too.

October 2, 2018

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 […]

Sometimes Mama Gena herself goes off the rails …

September 4, 2018

It is so easy for a woman to lose her way. A trip through the morning headlines can ignite grief, frustration, despair. A glance in the mirror can trigger disapproval which can be hard to shake. A day flooded with tasks, both surmountable and insurmountable, can suck some serious wind from anyone’s sails. And let’s […]
