Yes, Mother's Day, and a happy one, with best wishes, for traditional mothers everywhere. There is another tribe of mothers, though ... ... probably several ... that go unseen and unsung in our culture. It's this tribe -- my tribe... Continue Reading →

Black (Madonna) Friday

  Ahhh, yes, the dreaded 'Black Friday', so called, that follows Thanksgiving Thursday in the U.S. For a couple of different reasons that likely share the same root, I can't quite get into the toxic-Friday spirit of the insane consume-o-brawl,... Continue Reading →

I Build a Lighted House and …

Energies of Now: Shamanic retrieval in the sign of the Initiate

Update 9-20-16 and 1-15-18: I wrote this original post in early January 2016, yet it's drawn recent attention thanks to reblogs from my kindred spirit and friend Leeby Geeby @ Shamagaia and a few others (thank you!). Uncanny timing. As... Continue Reading →

The Healers of the Family Tree

Persephone, like Inanna, is such an important mythic and archetypal story about the epic Underworld Journey and initiation into our deep-Feminine wisdom. Some of us experience a real-deal Dark Night of the Soul, a true Underworld Journey, as we're shaken... Continue Reading →

The Black Madonna’s Calling – Celebrate the Goddess

These last two months or so, the Black Madonna started rising more prominently in my awareness again. Not that she's ever far away, but sometimes she rises to the surface and taps me on the shoulder with some synchronicities, and... Continue Reading →

A Luminous Knowing and Wisdom from the Underworld

"The women who have reconnected with their instinctual power have gone beyond the limits of ordinary-world success, whether they have been taken there through loss and suffering into the depths of their being and reborn through touching into their creative... Continue Reading →

Resources for Empaths and Sensitives Series

Ahhh, to be an actual, 'just wired that way' Empath -- One who is naturally made to be more sensitive to the energy currents (subtle and not-so-subtle), including the thoughts and  emotions wafting and swirling around us at any given moment.... Continue Reading →

Reaping Wisdom out of Hell – o – Operator

Sometimes it's good to shake up stuck notions, when they get so calcified they become toxic. That's when we need to 'go all Hafiz', and turn it upside down to shake the nonsense out and reveal the original Wisdom of it.... Continue Reading →

Shamanic Activism and Shamanic Caveat

Two very different articles on shamanic practice came into my email inbox in the same morning. I'll share both of them here in the Sophia's Children blog, since many multi-tradition Indigenous Wisdom paths have so much in common with the... Continue Reading →

Wise Women and Mid-Life (Re)Blooming

Many of us have experienced, or are experiencing, a sort of radical rebirth, a reincarnation within this incarnation. We're living in uber-transformative times, so perhaps it comes as no surprise that transformation around us happens through transformation within us, even... Continue Reading →

Solstice Reflections and the Season of Lights

I love this time of the year, with its juxtaposition of light and yinny dark and lots of little sparkly lights and candles everywhere. The sparkly lights shining into the dark of night make me happy, and pretty well symbolize... Continue Reading →

You’re in Scorpio Season Now ~ Going Deep

Just in case Super-Storm Sandy is all it's projected to be, I'm posting an earlier version of a blog post on my list for this week. A super-juicy Taurus full moon, a super cocktail of a storm, and the cross-quarter... Continue Reading →
