It is only in hindsight that we are able to see the stories unfolding in our lives.  For in each of our personal biographies are patterns that guide, twist, and disassemble us, along with bringing wondrous gifts that create us into the being we are destined to become.

I can now laugh at myself when I think of the annoyed 13 year-old telling her mom that she’d have her own girls after my third brother was born.  

I can more deeply grasp what the important women in my life were trying to teach me when they invited me to experience wondrous music, explore my talents, and become self-reliant.

As a child and adolescent, I was strong-willed, intuitive and could strategically navigate chaos – qualities that were eventually pushed down and out of sight, for little girls were “to be seen and not heard”.  

In the past ten years and with the guidance of wonderful teachers, I have begun to re-member my feminine values and rebuild the motherline of my ancestors.

This re-membering has caused me to find the parts of myself that were disowned, to shed my habits of pleasing, and to release the way I had internalized misogyny.  I have excavated the long forgotten Feminine in my life.  As I continue to do this depth work, I share this work with you.
