I was born on a wildly dark mythic day… the 11th day of the 11th month. The moment of my appearance I was marked to carry the wounds of my Ancestors… into the New World.
My life is legendary. It could have been something other. So easily. The trick is in how we perceive it. How we interpret the hieroglyphs which play out on the stage of our lives. Unfortunately for most of us imagination was eradicated from our education and thus our self analysis is bland, cold, critical and superficial. Anything but mythic. Grand. Legendary.
Thank you for stopping by my website, the haven for my wild creative genius and yours.
I am a depth artist. And have healed, transformed and fallen in love with myself and my life through the embodied arts… authentic movement, source painting, writing, and music. It is through these forms I am able to see, engage with and live my wild creative nature into life.
I am a mentor. I mentor women in these embodied arts in workshops, online groups and in one on one sessions. I teach you how to paint, move, write, and ritualize your way into your most profound sacred wild intelligence and bring its force into your life.
The overriding theme of my life has been to break free of the wretchedness the world mirrored as reality and find the REAL deal.
The mythic deal. The great adventure. My own. Through this work I healed the dark wounded psyche I inherited and fashioned understanding, art and meaning out of its energies. I transformed. And now I am living my life aligned with my deep sacred nature and passing these skills on to you.
Without fully knowing what I was seeking, this was the quest that broke through in my early 40s when I could no longer bear the confines of life as mother, musician, teacher, spiritual devotee, lover.
I had worked hard and accomplished much in all of these areas, was renowned as a master teacher, yet something in me was desperately languishing. My health began to decline as did my relationships. I turned my back on organized spirituality and found myself feeling less tolerant of my children, my partner, my work. Something was calling me. Howling.
I could feel the presence of its encroaching wildness. It prowled in my dreams. My sexuality exploded on the scene in my dreams and imagery. The energy was ferocious and terrified me!
I knew the power of the wild dark side as I was nearly destroyed by it as a teenager. Yet I also knew its gift. Dark eros. The jewel in the darkness. And in this dark jewel I was experiencing the radical drive for creation. Self Creation! I had birthed enough babies. Now I thirsted for Art. The art of living Life from my deep true nature. My personal self expression.
I began to follow my instinctual intuition.
Smelling. Hearing. Touching. Imagining my way through the unconscious. I was seeking something new. Something ancient.
I hungered for it as an artist. I hungered for its wildness. I wanted OUT of the confines of this civilized life! I wanted a radical breakthrough no matter the suffering I would endure.
I knew I had to follow this energy to get to the core of my authentic essence and fully live it! And… I was cursed to go through it anyway. There is no putting this dark genie back in the bottle… except to drug it. If I didn’t find my way with it, it would destroy me and those I loved in its wake.
What do we do with the wild creative self that defies the boundaries of our society, pushes the edge of our taboos, threatens to destroy traditions as well as the human when uncontrolled… while at the same time is the creative force in which we are being impelled by evolution to CREATE! Anew! Ourselves and our society. Revolution! The revolutionary force of evolution!
My pursuit brought me to the feet of the wise grandmothers of embodied depth psychology and art expression: Marion Woodman, Aviva Gold, Neala Haze, Jill Mellnick.
They taught me to return to the ground of my body. Trained me in the arts of the bodysoul. Here it was that I contacted the ‘uncontacted woman’ in the wilderness of my bodypsyche. Here it was that I learned how to dance with the force of my creative daimon.
Over the last thirteen years I have created volumes of embodied art and trained many women in these sacred forms.
I hold seasonal rituals and celebrations for my community. And now, I am here, living my legend, dancing fully in who I am and passing these gifts on to you.
My Offerings to you…
I invite you to join me and others in exploring and deepening our understanding of Astrology through my Embody Your Sacred Wild Astrology programs… which include the Dark Moon Embodiment Rituals I offer in monthly online webinars.
You can work with me privately for a reading of your astrology chart and an embodiment of the archetypes evoked through through the reading, gifting you with an encounter of the living vital force of your sacred wild nature in my Unleash & Embody session…
The continued imperative of my wild creative nature, my Daimon, is to share my journey through my art and guide others in theirs for the reclamation of their life as legend.
