    Autumn New Moon Wishes and a Decade of Kisses

    I adore the story of how I met my husband.  As it happens, today marks a decade since that fateful night.  Time is such a strange way to measure things because in some ways it means something and in other ways it means nothing at all! I feel like we only met yesterday, our relationship still feels so new….and yet, I feel like I have known him forever.  We just click that way.  He is my family, my dearest friend, my creative go-to-guy, my biggest fan, my truest critic, and the love of my life. I met my artist husband under a full moon while camping  out at a wild…

    Dear Grandmother Moon: Creativity Prompt

    Your light in the sky surprised me tonight.  I have been so focused on what was just in front of me, so focused on what greedily grabs my attention, that I forgot to look up and out.  Yet, even in my self-absorption, you show me how to glow in the darkness of night. Sometimes when I gaze into your face against the velvet cloth of night, I can feel you like the shining light of a thousand loves beckoning me to remember who I am. I recall a night so many years ago when I leaned back, cradled by the Earth, and traced you with my finger tips.  You were…

    New Moon Mystery

    In the dark of the Moon, Mystery blooms.  It invites you to let go of all those yearnings and all the drives that move you forward.  It calls you to slow down and just be.  Be with.  Be in unknowing.  Be nothing.  Let go of the striving.  Let go of yesterday and tomorrow.  And sit in the silence of all that you are and all that you are not. Be prepared there may be anxiety in this space.  We aren’t used to the empty.  We try so desperately to fill it up so we don’t have to feel, don’t have to face simple existence.  Make friends with this Mystery sisters…

    Womb-Moon Wisdom Meditation

    I sat with the Moon last night.  It was full and wrapped in the clouds that brought a quenching rain the morning before.  I tuned in to my body.  It is changing as women’s bodies do.  For the last 6 months or so during the Wednesday night meditation group I attend with Rev. Shar Schwengler of the Lucid Waking Radio Show on A2Zen.fm, my body has been talking to me.  I began with exploring the stories that lived in various parts of my body. There is the old hitch in my giddy up (my lower back) that flares up occasionally that reminds me of a bad fall I had in…

    Reflection Moon & Creativity Boosters

    Body Wisdom Project Each New Moon for this year, I join with my friend (and sometimes workshop partner) Jessica to explore our relationship with the body by choosing a focal word for lunar cycle.  We have been focusing on February’s Believing Moon, exploring what it means to believe in the wisdom of the body.  As is often the way with intuitive journeys like the one we are creating together, each level can unfold with a certain balance of mystery and synchronicity. The mystery comes out of traversing the unknown.  This is especially true when you give yourself up to the guidance of a collaborative experience.  Having Jessica’s input makes my…

    Full Moon Mindfulness

    A few weeks ago, at the dark of the moon to be exact, I began a personal exploration of my relationship with my body.  I am approaching this journey with my friend, Jessica.  We call it the Body Wisdom Project.  Our intention during this moon cycle is to LISTEN. It seems like a no brainer; LISTEN to the body.  But how often do we do it?  How often do we get quiet enough to tune out the world and  its messages and messiness, and tune into the body’s subtle whispers.  How often do we follow the body’s advice?  How often do we honor the wisdom it offers? The Body Wisdom…
