I learned three amazing pieces of advice from a few brilliant crones I had the pleasure of meeting.
I believe in rewriting the inheritance of women and of leadership. This was a primary motivation for writing my book, Burlesque and Bequest: Rewriting the Inheritance of Women.
I believe in a new story for the people. In my book, I take readers on an intimate journey to explore the inheritance of women, and to deliberate over the most important questions of the century:
Can society learn to exalt, celebrate, and integrate the feminine?
Can women learn to insist on their self-worth?
Can we declare a new legacy for the feminine?
I was deeply inspired, obsessed you might say, by Sinner Saint’s show-stopping production, Inheritance: Maiden, Mother, Crone. I had the honor of being the production manager for this show and bringing audiences on a provocative and profound journey exploring what it meant to be a woman. I couldn’t stop there, so I created this book. I interviewed an eclectic group of women who are pioneering the folklore of their souls, and answering these questions for themselves. My book takes a raw and unapologetic look at how their sex and gender have shaped who they are and what their legacy is.
This video captures my sentiment, and reflects my views on what feminine leadership seeks to help us understand and accomplish. My favorite line from the video is: "disrupt the psychic subculture of our mythology." Cheers to disruption.
How do you wake each morning? Before a big event? On Monday? On Saturday? Here's a better question: how do you WANT to wake each morning?
I invited my mom to guest blog for me. She was a childbirth educator for many years, and as the mother of 5, knows a few things about birthing.
Today's blog is for anyone who has birthed a dream or shepherded a labor of love.
This week, I’ve been re-learning about how important it is to have fun, to play, and to dance in my work. I want to share what happened recently that sparked this learning moment.
Warning! This may be too mind-blowing for some. Proceed with caution!
In an interview I did recently, I was asked, “Why is it important to talk about shame?” Now there is a question you don’t hear every day. Here is why I think it is important to talk about shame…
Over and over I heard that familiar frustration, dread, confusion and helplessness. I heard it from some of the most mind blowing, tool kit crazy, powerhouse women I know.
