Happy 2020 to you, and Epiphany, too (the latter, just past on one calendar and upcoming on another - either way, it's a really good theme for the Energies of Now). Were you happy to see the 2019 calendar-year come... Continue Reading →
With the Season of Lights Holy Days, holidays — and holiDAZE for many people — this previous musing on The Healers of the Family Tree came spiraling back up into my awareness.
I’ve updated the Current Special Offerings, too, and you can always request a more Spiritual Direction-focused option if that’s what works best for you.
(You’ll see the link to Current Featured Offerings below, too.)
Holidays & the Healers of the Family Tree.
If we’re blessed with stress-free family relations, get togethers, holiday times, and New year — a charmed life, with no stresses or challenges — then we are HUGELY blessed, indeed. Celebrate it!
For many, even with the joys and blessings, there are often nerve-frazzling stresses and family dramas at this time of year.
For some others, the holidays and this time of year is super stressful, angst-stirring, and even depressing.
Some of those stresses — many of them, maybe — are very much connected to the cultural, familial, and ancestral ‘legacies’ that play out again and again.
Until they’re seen, soothed, shifted … and, just maybe, healed.
When there’s a heart-centered purpose, even the potentially nerve-frazzling stresses and family dramas can be experienced differently.
In that Spirit …
Here’s a refreshed version of my previous Sophia’s Children post, The Healers of the Family Tree … as well as Current Featured Offerings.
Big Love & a healing season (no matter which season you’re currently in)!

There are clues that spiral around again and again to validate, remind, or spark new (or renewed) awareness and dedication.
These clues can make up the shiny breadcrumb clue trail we follow, if we know how to look.
When I came across the following musing, in a book I came across quite serendipitously, it spoke to me very deeply.
I know that it’ll speak to some of you, too, as keepers of the ancestral lineage and healers of the family tree (as Malidoma Somé writes).

I received a fabulous email from a new reader who was drawn by the word-morph Sophiastology and wanted to know how I came up with it ... and how it differs from traditional astrology First ... I love hearing from... Continue Reading →
A timely musing and always-welcomed reminder spirals up from the Sophia’s Children inspiration-archives …

For many horizon-edge walkers and vision-seeders, transformation agents, and similar culture-shifters, transformation fatigue and burnout are occupational hazards.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and to become fatigued or heavy hearted at what seems a daunting task in the face of myriad epic challenges that roll in like waves from the ocean.
I’m pretty resilient, and devoted to The Work and the practices that allow and support it, but sometimes I — like all of us — feel the bone-weariness of transformation fatigue and other occupational hazards.
I’ve learned from experience that dipping often into the deep, rich wellsprings of inspiration from our kindred-spirit edge walkers and vision-seeders is vital … as are other disciplines and practices that help us to be as we are (and as we’re here on this planet…
