A course in Feminine Power: Part I

Note: This blog post is in two parts and contains strong opinions. I am deeply in love with the world and want what is best for our planet and its inhabitants.

The Next Age artist

What is the first thing you think of when someone mentions “New Age” in a conversation? Meditating hippies? Crystals and incense? Spacey music and inspirational quotes? Getting past these stereotypes can be challenging if you’re involved in the consciousness movement (another term that brings resistance) or an artist (more labels).

Fear devours more and more of your mind, disconnecting you from perspective, compassion and higher thoughts. Fear keeps you in an incessant loop of righteousness to protect you from illusionary evils. Fear […]

Je ne regrette rien

In the volume of stories about unexplored dreams, Grey Gardens serves well as a cautionary tale. The public fascination with the bizarre life path of the Beales is legendary. The 1975 documentary of a mother and daughter living in their decaying East Hampton home is both curious and heartbreaking. The made for TV film (which […]

What’s draining my power?

On a hot and humid Sunday afternoon in Chicago two weeks ago, there was a loud explosion behind our apartment building. BOOM! and the electricity went off.
