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

Starting a creative project …it’s messy.

Whether it’s starting a new business, developing a strategy, delivering a project or making art, we all have a process, even if we think it looks nothing like one – because processes are meant to be structured and linear and creativity is often anything but. In fact, the creativity process can look something like this:

Moving away from the mother

Moving away from the mother

“You look just like your mother.” It’s a sentence that used to make me cringe. As a teenager going through a decade-long rebellion, the very last thing I wanted to be told was that I looked like my mother. My mother was beautiful, feminine, gracious, polite and charming. She was the epitome of a lady.

self-discovery

I’m fine thanks

Here’s a revolutionary thought: There is nothing wrong with you. And another: You are not broken. You don’t need to be fixed. Do you believe me? I’m not sure you do. I’m not surprised. You have, after all, been told your entire life what to do, who to be, how to act, how to dress,

Conscious parenting

Conscious parenting

I’ve been a single parent for most of my son’s life. His father and I separated when he was 18 months old, and divorced a year later. We agonized over the decision: went to counselling, patching things up for a while only to have them fall apart again. We could both see that everyone would

Burn the boats

Go to the island, burn the boats

How committed are you to your purpose? How excited are you to do your work in the world? How ready are you to step into your power, to be seen, to really do something meaningful? If you’re nodding and saying yes to yourself, or you feel like you’re even on the outskirts of this vicinity,

Learning to stay

I set my timer, which gently chimes at five minute intervals with a double chime at the end. Five minutes passed like it was a few seconds. Then ten minutes. Then fifteen. And then it started. First, just a slight restlessness. Then a growing sense of discomfort. In my knees. In my ankles. An intense

Find your edge

Find your edge

It’s there. Behind the day to day. Just out of reach of what you know. Beyond what you think you are capable of. Just past your reach. It’s there. Outside your comfort zone. On the outskirts of the circle, way beyond the box. Just past the end of your fingertips even on your farthest reach.
