Spirituality and Late-Stage Capitalism

The relationship between Spirituality and money is complicated, and was long before we entered this phase of late-stage capitalism. The image for this post is from my Daily Messages (January 25th). The text reads: Abundance just is. Much like gravity, it just exists within the universe. Lack, its assumed opposite, is simply the illusion of…

Feminine Divine and the Soul (repost)

This post on the Divine Feminine was originally published on March 13, 2015. I’ve updated some links. I was talking to a colleague about the difference between the energies of the Feminine and Masculine Divine. The connection with the masculine is directed, linear, and outward; it has definable points. The connection with the feminine is…

You Are Divine

You are Divine. Don’t believe me? Let us assume that either the Divine is everything or it is nothing. It is everything, because what exactly would you imagine is bigger than the Divine? It is no-thing, because it is undefinable. It is not a thing. If the Divine is everything. Than the keyboard upon which…

Cycles of the Goddess

In 2020, instead of doing a Full Moon Women’s Circle, I will be offering an online subscription program of Goddess-centric devotional material. All live sessions will be available via video conference and phone. The program will still incorporate some of Lasara Firefox Allen‘s work on the fivefold goddess model, as well as aiming to elevate…

There is more than one way to bear fruit

This year, in my Full Moon Women’s Circle, we have been working with the information from Lasara Firefox Allen’s book, Jailbreaking the Goddess. In it, she encourages us to look beyond biology so that we can rehumanize women in our society. As long as women are defined by their “usefulness” to society (through childbearing and…

Fabric arts ritual with an activist purpose

Back in July, I posted a ritual (not mine) to help protect immigrants. With all the hubub around Title X funds, I would like to offer you another ritual, this time from Crafting Change, for Abortion Patients, Providers, and Protectors. What you will need: * A quiet space to do this work * That which…

Working with your shadow self

As we ease into the darkening of the year, my Full Moon Women’s Circle will be focusing on the shadow or occult face of the Goddess. Of you can’t join us and would still like to explore making friends with those parts of yourself you would rather ignore, thereby becoming stronger and more integrated, this…

The Magdalene on balance

Balance is important. Without access to the full spectrum of expression of a given thing, imbalance occurs, which means that the expression of that thing will be potentially problematic. In this abstract, this is either an obvious statement or completely incomprehensible, depending on the person. If you only ever exercise your lower leg by pointing…

How to Make a Choice Between Anger and Fear

Anger, as I keep saying, is merely a call to action. Yes, it can mask other emotions, and it’s still a call to action. You can channel the passion and energy of your anger into empowered forward motion. Fear, on the other hand, is a call to inaction; when you are in fear, anxiety, or…
