Remembering Seena Frost: Friend, Mentor, Muse

I feel greatly blessed to have known and worked with  a very special soul.  Her name was Seena Frost and she was the birth mother of the process that has changed my life in so many ways: SoulCollage(R).  She died on January 13, just a month shy of her 84th birthday.  Seena had been diagnosed […]

My Soul's Cookbook

How many of us struggle with our relationship with food?  We are told that obesity is a major health issue in the USA.  Of course there are many reasons for this, but how can we address the emotional component of this love/hate relationship we have with food and our bodies? Food, love, mother, and nurturing weave together […]

My Soul's Kitchen: Recipes that Recapture Comfort and Joy

I discovered my mother’s cookbooks at age 5 when I discovered one with color photos of birthday cakes.  What a find this was!  I loved looking at these pictures, imaging the cakes in front of me on my special day.  As I grew older, I developed a strong desire to just be in the kitchen, washing dishes, cooking, […]

Uluru, Cradle of Life on Earth

Recently, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to visit the sacred sites of Uluru (Ayers Rock) located in the red desert in the center of Australia.  The first thing that struck me were the vibrant colors of this immense landscape.  The sand is a brilliant orange/red, the bush (small trees and bushes) seemed a light […]

New Life for Old Stuff: My Cuban Art Adventure

I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to Cuba a few weeks ago with a tour sponsored by Wisconsin Public Radio,  hosted by Dr. Jonathan Overby and organized by Earthbound Expeditions. It was a trip back in time in many ways.   I was impressed by what we did not see: big […]

Spring Emergence: Your Creative Self Wants to be Seen

The unconscious seems to delight in breaking through- and breaking up- exactly what we cling to most rigidly in our conscious thinking. (Rollo May in The Courage to Create, p. 59) The long winter is finally ending. I can hear the ice cracking on the lake. I hear the “woosh” of frozen chunks letting go, […]

Giving Form to Your Dreams for the New Year

Happy New Year to you! Welcome to the “in between” time.  This is the perfect time to put on your “observer hat”, and  look back over the past year, or years.  What were your dreams at this time last year?  What were your dreams at this time a decade ago?  What are your dreams for […]

Gathering Around the Fire

During my trip to Sweden and Germany with the International Council of the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, I found myself drawn to the energy of the ceremonial fire which burned for four days in Sweden, and three days in Germany.  The fire was the place where we gathered at the beginning of each day and at […]

Adventures with The Thirteen Grandmothers

 I have just returned from spending three weeks in Europe (Sweden and Germany) with the International Council of the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers.  I was blessed and honored to be asked to serve as a personal assistant to one of them, Grandmother Rita Long Visitor Holy Dancer.  It was an amazing experience to be part of […]
