This Valentine’s day I’m thinking a lot about sisterhood. And the tender, irreplaceable, fierce love that’s possible and necessary between women. I fly close with my flock. There would be no way on earth I would be with my boyfriend, now, if not for my pal Nicole, who put me in a serious headlock when...

Is your light on or off? Right now. Take a quick test: Do you feel flush with enthusiasm? Beautiful? Strong? Confident? Good. Then your light is on. And, ummmm…. If you are annoyed or irritated by this question, your light is resoundingly off. There are lots of very good reasons why we dim our light,...

I ran into a girlhood friend, Nancy. We had not seen one another in more than 40 years. She has a quiet life in the country, married to her childhood sweetheart, and working as a high school guidance counselor, in Vermont.

I draw courage from the stories of women who have courage. I draw strength from learning from women who have overcome the insurmountable.

A few weeks ago, an incredibly brave woman stood up at my intro class and broke open the room with her vulnerability. She stood there, voice trembling into the microphone. “When I went to the gynecologist, she said my vagina had atrophied. What?!” Bam. Ouch. WTF. Atrophy. Atrophied. We all took a collective deep breath....

I am writing to you from my dressing room. It’s 5:12pm on Sunday afternoon, and we have just wrapped the first weekend of Mastery 2015. Moments ago, I left a stage filled with dancing, hugging women, turned on and ecstatic, at a level I have never ever experienced on a first Mastery weekend. This work...

A really really really really good friend of mine, Ayo, got engaged last month. For the very first time. At age 68. This was not a likely thing to have ever happened in this world. She came from a single mama who raised her alone. And she had been a single mama, raising her daughter...

Sister Goddess Patty, Age 54 I was born in a car in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on my way to the hospital. In those days (1960), since my mother gave birth before arriving at the hospital, I was considered “contaminated” and had to stay in the room with her instead of the nursery. She had often told...

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...
