Dear friends, clients, sisters, soul mates and students--
I want to thank you all for four years of incredible self-employment. I have learned and grown so much during these permutations. I am working on a deep project right now and will be stepping away from a consistent online presence for the next thirteen moons.
As some of you know last year I started a PhD program in Philosophy and Religion with a Women's Spirituality emphasis through CIIS in San Francisco. This fall I will be teaching again at Pacific University. These twinned paths are guiding me and nurturing an ever-unfolding journey that culminates, always these days, in the sacred creative unknown.
Of course, this means I don't know where the embodied, expressed synthesis lies just yet. I have an unpublished manuscript about ready to go to the printer, the threaded beginnings of a community nonprofit organization (The eclectic, multifaith Center for Ancestral Wisdom) forming, a new garden calling me daily out of the head and into the world and this thicket of a (secret!) project I am undertaking for the year. All I know for sure is I start teaching next week, have three teenagers headed back to school the week after, and life is beautifully undulant.
The best way to find me, connect with upcoming events or receive information in the moons ahead:
Sign up for the quarterly Myth and Moon letters. These old fashion letters in digital form will present whatever I discover in the journey through each season. Gathered for autumn already: homemade apple cider vinegar, sourdough starter with grapes, mugwort and earth based etymology. If you are already on my mailing list you are already added and will receive the first letter near Samhain in late October/Early November.
Or, send me a real--yes, snail mail letter! I will write back! You can reach me at
2043 College Way
Forest Grove, OR 97116
I am for sure not scheduling sessions, ceremonies or teaching community classes until 2017. Moon Divas Certification goes offline in two weeks time (if you haven't bought the course this is your last chance for the inexpensive self-study program. The reboot next summer will be live, and thus more...Note that Vestal University is becoming the Wild Soul School--more on this in the autumnal Myth and Moon.) After this there is a bend in the road beyond which I cannot see...
Accepting and loving my transitions is part of my path and work in life, living in the unknown, unseen, uncertain. From here I wish you all joy and love and look for you in the myths, the moons, the gathered threads.
Into the next--
