Disowning the feminine

In order to make our way in the world, many of us as women feel that we need to distance ourselves from aspects of the feminine such as being too emotional or passive, as they’ve been labeled as negative traits and a barrier to success for women in the masculine dominated workforce. Being a feminine

It starts with restlessness

I wonder if it started this way for you, the path to waking up. To realizing that there was something more waiting for you than what you had been told, or seen, or believed. To seeing a glimmer of light in a crack of your life, creating an opening into your womanhood. Perhaps you started

Oprah Winfrey

Go out like a comet

One of my favorite episodes of Super Soul Sunday is the interview between Oprah Winfrey and Jean Houston. I must have listened to it at least half a dozen times. They discuss many things, most notably consciousness, being a woman, the state of the world, purpose, the hero and heroine’s journey, ageing and fulfilling their

You can do anything, but not everything

We still talk endlessly about balance or our lack there of. We struggle with the juggle. We are exhausted. In many cases we have thrown our hands up in the air, dropped our heads in despair, and figured that we would just have to settle for this life, unsatisfactory as it feels, because this is

Your next moment is unprecedented

It doesn’t matter where you come from. It doesn’t matter who you were last week, last month, last year or last decade. It doesn’t matter what school you went to, who your friends are, how nice your parents were, or who your boss is. Your past is over. None of it matters now. What matters

heroine's journey

The heroine’s journey

A woman’s journey is not linear. It’s not a straight line, and you can’t plot it on a graph. It’s cyclical, seasonal, emotional, relational. Women’s lives take place in the community, sitting in circle, gathering in tribes and in councils. The path of The Heroine’s Journey as developed by Maureen Murdock represents this, perhaps for

patriarchy

Daughters of the patriarchy

Patriarchy. It’s a word I have only really come to understand in the past decade. That may seem surprising for someone who has researched women’s studies, diversity, gender, and feminine power so intently. With a naiveté that still makes me curious, I worked inside the structures that define the very patriarchy itself – the all
