“Women cannot simply retrieve or re-appropriate tradition. They must find a deeper spirituality, a new mysticism.”
~ Beverly Lanzetta, Radical Wisdom
That’s just one of the things I’ve learned on my own journey, once Mother Wisdom had grown impatient with my apparently “too-distracted by the bling-bling” pace of remembering and decided to speed the transformation pace up a bit … well, a lot.
Change begins within, as so many wise women and men have known. That also means that, as the poet Hafiz wittily mused, Love turns us upside down and shakes the nonsense out.
Many of Sophia-Wisdom’s children have walked paths of intense transformation since the turn of the millennium, myself included. Our passports have been stamped as Underworld frequent-flyers thanks to repeated initiations intended both the shake the nonsense, bling-ensorcelment, and other false-conditioning out, and to restore our recollection of Wisdom.
While this has often (okay, almost always) been quite the challenge, it’s not without purpose.

She has great appreciation for dark chocolate and cooking other nourishing, delicious meals -- often plant-based -- to nourish her partner and her peeps. She also helps to manage a women's health clinic, emphasizing in-person, for-real compassionate care. (Aquarius Sun, Chiron Pisces, Ur-Plu Virgo conjunction, and HD 6/2 Projector) Be well!
