Expanding Kabbalah

I’ve been teaching Kabbalah for almost 10 years, I think. It’s a universal system that transcends belief structures, but most of the information out there is based on Abrahamic tradition. I’ve got some Gnostic in me, so that part isn’t completely dissonant, and I still strive to find a way to present the information in…

Separating Fact From Fiction

The most useful thing that meditation gives us is the ability to separate fact from fiction. When we don’t have a regular (read: daily) practice of some sort of mindfulness, we take the stories our mind tells us as fact. I wrote about this extensively at the end of October. There is phrase some people…

Forecast: Looking Ahead to 2020

As I’m doing my 2020 forecasts for clients, a theme keeps coming up over and over again, and it came up in a student reading in Journey the Mystical Tarot as well. So I thought I would share the information here. This is a pivotal year world-wide. Numerologically, we are in a year of either…

Cycles of the Goddess

Use Mercury Transit to power your changes!

On Monday (11/11), Mercury will transit (cross) the Sun’s face. On the West Coast, it will start at 4:36am, peak at 7:20am, and finish at 10:04am. The next Mercury Transit won’t be until 2032. Yes yes, that’s only 12 years off, but still. So, this event is Mercury (conscious thought, communication) stepping between us and…

Let me tell you about the Negative Ego

What some people call brain is more accurately “mind”. In Buddhist terms, it is the monkey mind. In Western Mystery Tradition it frequently gets labeled as the Negative Ego. In Twelve Step programs, they just call it ego, but that term is confusing, because Freud. The Negative Ego is that part of the Self that, when sabre…

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…
