I write on a vast array of topics; communication, relationships, parenting, sexuality, gender, feminism, spirituality, politics. My intention is to be the change, to put new ideas out there (or old ideas that I’m recycling) and start deep conversation on important ideas.

Feminism is Not One Size Fits All – aka, This Feminist is for Bernie

forbernieI posted this over on fb, and a friend suggested I post it here too. So here it is.

This has been a long time brewing, but the incident with Gloria Steinem yesterday pushed me over the edge.

So, some issues I’m having with some feminists this election cycle:

1. Fucking Gloria, what the hell??? If you think my daughter (a proud Bernie supporter) is voting with her hormones (and apparently you do), you can fuck right off.

2. White ladies insisting that anyone who isn’t voting for Hillary is betraying feminism. Truth is, Hillary isn’t the strongest feminist in the race. And, intersectionality is a *thing*! And, being a “feminist” is only ONE of the essential elements that creates a good candidate. Others are voting records regarding access to healthcare (Bernie is for a universal healthcare system), prison reform (Bernie has a plan to end privatization for example), drug law reform (Bernie, for example, wants to end marijuana prohibition), and etc. (And if you don’t know why these issues are – or MUST BE – feminist issues, I hope you will read Jailbreaking the Goddess: A Radical Revisioning of Feminist Spirituality when it comes out in July.)

In case you’re under the misapprehension that voting for Bernie makes you a bad feminist, rest assured, voting for Bernie doesn’t make you a bad feminist. And voting for Hillary doesn’t make you a good one.

Jailbreaking the Goddess

the initiation

a.baa-Flower-puncturing-concreteJoin me for Jailbreaking the Goddess: The Initiation – a powerfully transformational seven month process of spiritual self-discovery, psychological self-reflection, and holistic reclaiming and revisioning of the feminal divine.

In our seven months together, we will:
•    Immerse ourselves in the fluid, nonlinear, multivalent, rich, beautiful complexity of a fivefold model for the feminal divine
•    Experience opportunities for feminal empowerment, experience, and honoring
•    Conjure the space and framework in which to experience these five aspects of the divine feminal in you and as you,  us and through us
•    Help you to claim your body as your OWN, free of concepts of biological and sexual utility – you will come home to the full awareness that you are more than your biology. Your uterus is not public property. Your sexuality is not for other people. In the trajectory of this course you will come to know these truths in a radical and abiding way.
•    Hold a strong container of (non-gender-specific) sisterhood – a cauldron of changes – which will house our psychological, spiritual, personal and collective transformation
•    Reveal and acknowledge the overculture/dominant culture values that form the foundation of our development in both our interpersonal and intrapersonal development
•    Find our roots in the rich loam of ancient, timeless, fertile soil that exists under and outside of contemporary structures of socialization
•    Create a dedicated, shared, virtual space within which we will confront, deconstruct, and move through ideologies and patterns of action that reinforce disempowerment
•     Find deep transformation in the process of releasing, centering, and renewing

A Gratitude Game – Gratitude Round-Robin
Posted on November 21, 2010

Definition of Terms

a. Round is a go-around where everyone in a group gives their answer.

b. Round-Leader is the facilitator of the round. This position transitions at the conclusion of each round. The role of round leader can go to the person who wants it next, or you can pass the role in the round, either to the left or right. If a player does not want to be a round leader, they can pass.

Basic Guidelines:

a. Never force, “cajole” , or pressure any player into responding to any prompt. “Pass” is always an acceptable response.

b. The main rule is: Answer from gratitude. BE GRATEFUL!

c. Always give the person who is offering their gratitude the floor. Do not interrupt them, question them, or quiet them. If you’re playing this as a family, it’s especially important that you allow one another the full range of voice.

Round-Robin:

Sitting in a circle, or around a table, one person starts with a statement of gratitude, then everyone else in the group follows one-by-one. The group can set guidelines as desired.

Some possibilities:

  • Stay within a theme for each round.
  • No repeats per round. (For example, if someone says they’re grateful for family, someone else may say they’re grateful for a person IN their family, but not repeat the more general idea.)
  • Staying with one idea for every round (like, the round-leader says they’re grateful for apples, then everyone in the round says why they’re grateful for apples).

A Grateful A – Z — A Gratitude Game for Kids of All Ages
Posted on November 17, 2010

When I was a kid, we played alphabet games in the car to pass the time on long drives or road trips. I’ve recreated one of those games, with a gratitude theme. A Grateful A to Z includes players of all ages – from talking age up.

A Grateful A to Z is an adaptable game. Variations are listed below. For young players, A Grateful A to Z serves two purposes; it teaches both language skills and gratitude! And, with older players, there are ways to make A Grateful A to Z more complicated.

You can choose a category, or allow A Grateful A to Z to be free-form. Free-form is recommended for younger players, and is easier than working with a category. Themes or categories are recommended for more advanced players.

1. Definition of terms:

a. “Round” is a go-around where everyone in a group gives their answer to the category, or passes.

b. “Round-Leader” is the facilitator of the round. This position transitions at the conclusion of each round. The role of round leader can go to the person who wants it next, or you can pass the role in the round, either to the left or right. If a player does not want to be a round leader, they can pass.

2. Basic Guidelines:

a. The main rule is: Answer from gratitude. Be GRATEFUL!

b. Never force, cajole, or pressure any player into responding to any prompt. “Pass” is always an acceptable response.

c. Always give the person who is offering their gratitude the floor. Do not interrupt, question, or quiet them. If you’re playing this as a family, it’s especially important that you allow one another the full range of voice.

Remember, you can print out these directions, or you can upload them to your palm-top and not print at all. Please keep your “footprint” in mind when considering your options.

Variations and Detailed Guidelines:

A Grateful A – Z, Freeform:
The round leader starts a round with the phrase “I’m grateful for…”, and chooses anything starting with an A. The round leader can pass the prompt either to the right or left. The round ends when the alphabet ends. You can make it more complicated by offering a “no repeats” guideline.

A Grateful A – Z, with Themes:
Round leader comes up with a theme – people you’re grateful for, things you’re grateful for, inventions you’re grateful for.

Enjoy your family this holiday season!

The Magickal Art of Initiation

Doorway_EmptyInitiation is big magick. I am drawn to it because I love it. I love the thrum of energy as releases occur. I love the accelerations and deccelerations in the process. I love the spiral path of it. The ineffability of it.

Have you ever wondered if magickal initiation was part of your future path? Let these words help you find your way to an answer.

Having been both the initiate and the initiator on more than one occasion over the decades, I have gathered some bits of knowledge about the magickal art of initiation. I underwent my first formal magickal initiation in 1992, and I have been in an initiating priesthood for an occult mystery tradition for over 25 years.

I have offered many initiations outside of the mystery tradition also. In 2005 Llewellyn Worldwide published my first book, Sexy Witch. Over the next decade I facilitated initiations based on that work for literally hundreds of women, and a few brave men. I have facilitated initiations in spontaneous settings as well, and have held space for people as they found their way through their own internal process of initiation.

There are prohibitions against speaking of the particulars of initiation. This is for good reason. Forgive me if I am sometimes lacking in detail. But know that is obscurity is really and truly allowing the space for your initiation to show up as it Will.

What is initiation?

forest_pathway_trees_woods_service_preserve_hd-wallpaper-1757451To initiate means to begin. It also means to admit someone into a secret order. While the latter definition is in a sense what I will be addressing in this article, the former is in many ways more relevant to the topic at hand. To enter into an initiation, in many cases, is to begin a process of transformation.

So this is where we begin. At the beginning.

Initiations come in varied forms and formats. Some initiations are consciously invited, as in the case of a formal magical initiation, or a graduation, or another recognized rite of passage. Some initiations happen by way of an experience that changes one’s life in an instant or over a course of time: a birth, or a death, or a near death experience, or a great loss or gain.

Some initiations – such as into an order – may be a recognition of work done. Or an initiation may be starting off on a new path. Most often, an initiation is both. Initiations are doorways; in initiation you are both entering and exiting at once. Passing a threshold between stations.

Initiations are liminal. They are the magickal moments of transition. The liminal spaces are the places where magick takes form. The times outside of time and spaces outside of space. Initiations are the magicks that bring new worlds into being.

Some initiations are entered into in a cohort. Some are entered into in a one-on-one setting with a teacher. Some initiations are conferred by initiators who are priest/esses. Some initiations are conferred by the gods themselves. Some initiations are a process of self-aware rebirth. Some are process or education or induction toward a spiritual or educational goal.

beachplay6_hand-stamped-jewelryAcross all the lineages of initiation, perhaps only one thing really holds true: even within a group process, initiation is different from person to person. Your path will not be the same as the path of another. Even given the same map, the requirement, needs, stations, and experiences of your journey will be specific to you.

Initiation rarely, if ever, looks how we might imagine it will.

The value of magickal initiation

Magickal initiations offer opportunities for a deeper and richer understanding of your self, the world, the divine, and your place within it all. They allow for new understanding of your walk and your Work in the world. They offer opportunities for a deeper commitment to your path. They offer greater alignment with your soul and your work in this body.

The deep work of any initiation happens when you recontextualize your new understandings into your interactions with the world and the divine. This is the love and magick of it. The grit and blood and fire of it. Where we put our backs to the wheel and push. Where we dig into the ground and plant seed. Where we come into conversation and root in new ideas.

Potentilla-arguta-Prairie-Cinquefoil-flowerWe are born to it, and we see gardens grow in us.

Often initiation is not of the membership-in-a-secret-order variety. But even when there is no official order that you are being initiated into, initiation – the process and result of it – delivers you to a level of understanding that most will not have who have not been through the initiation.

The benefits of formal process

A formal process of initiation offers a container for your experience of your initiatory process. This container, held by your initiator, initiatrix or initiatrices, is a matrix within which your transformation will take form, and from which it will emerge.

In a group process of initiation, your cohort is both part of the container of the process of initiation, and each is also held within the matrix of support and transformation. Your cohort is your sangha: the spiritual siblinghood where you can share your process, ask for support, offer support. Witness and be witnessed in the process of metamorphosis.

This container is a space held safe and sacred where your process will be honored, incubated, breathed into, witnessed, and held with reverence. The time and space you share with your initiatrix and your cohort is dedicated to the work of the Work.

Part magickal witnessing and reflection, part skill-share, part heart-sharing circle, and part think tank, the shared container of a formal initiation process is the place where you stand first in your process toward embodiment of the Work of transformation.

How do you know if an initiation is for you?

respeitoIf you are wondering if a cycle of initiation is right for you, chances are it is. The almost indistinguishable whisper on the wind is the beckoning of the Divine. If you can hear it, you are already seeking a path that will take you deeper.

Is there a tug? That tug is your deep knowing. Your body knows whether an initiation is right for you. It might feel like infatuation, or like anticipation, or like gravity. The pull may feel like all of these things. You may feel it in your gut, in your heart, your chest, your genitals. You may feel it in your solar plexus, in your hands, in your head. You may feel it in your skin, in your blood, in your bones.

You may experience the pull as desire. Or as anticipation. Or even as fear. Or as joy. Or as love. At the core of it, you will experience the pull as a deeper compass: the one that leads you to your deepest self.

That said, now is not always the right time. So how do you know for sure if the right initiation is coming at the right time for you?

Ask yourself questions. Answer them. Write them down in a  – – –  (minuses) and + + + (plusses) listing exercise. What might be in the way of participating right now? And what are your reasons for participating in this opportunity at this time?

steps_into_light_septDo you have a desire for transformation? Do you feel the beginnings of a shift in your life or consciousness? Are you ready to commit to your spiritual deepening and growth?

Still not entirely sure? Divine the answers! Talk to your god or gods. Use the cards, your pendulum, your runes, bibliomancy, tea leaves. Whatever your divination tools of choice, avail yourself of them.

All of this will reveal the truth you already know.

And then, as now, sometimes you may not know in your head that this is indeed the opportunity. Sometimes – perhaps often – TRUST is the tool that moves us into, and through, our processes of initiation.

Preparing yourself for the journey, and caring for yourself through it

Your initiation begins when you commit to the path of initiation. And initiation is akin to healing (and for many of us, part and parcel to it) in that it is a process with no destination. The journey – the process – is the destination.

One of the things that will help you greatly along the way is laying good groundwork before you start out on your path.

You will need to pay close attention to your shifting needs as you move forward. Part of the work ahead of you is to turn your listening inward. Much of what you need to hear on this journey will come from that inner voice. Take time to quiet yourself. Listen for what needs to be known.

heartYour initiation will also affect the people you love as it affects you. Involve your people in your process. You will need to engage them in the Work at times. Sometimes your Work will be with them. Let them know why you are undertaking this journey. Make sure they understand your commitments, and your needs. Let them know how they can best support you in it.

Finally, bring yourself to your gods. Allow yourself to open to the transformation. Allow yourself to fall in. And swim, walk, dance, fly your way into the center of it.

Are you ready for your initiation?

Mosque, West Bank, Palestine

In Honor of Ramadan, Seven Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Islam

Mosque, West Bank, Palestine(Reprinted from Elephant Journal)

Bismillah, ar Rahman, ar Rahim. (In the name of Allah, most beneficent and merciful.)

Ramadan kareem!

1. Mystical Oneness with God
In a mystical sense, Islam is a non-dualist religion. When I first read these words by ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib and Fatima bint Muhammad, I was overwhelmed with a sense of, “Oh my God! Exactly!”

Thus whoever attaches attributes to [God] recognizes His like, and who recognizes His like regards Him two; and who regards Him two recognizes parts for Him; and who recognizes parts for Him mistook Him; and who mistook Him pointed at Him; and who pointed at Him admitted limitations for Him; and who admitted limitations for Him numbered Him.
Whoever said in what is He, held that He is contained; and whoever said on what is He held He is not on something else.
~ Ali ibn Abi Talib

Ali ibn Abi Talib was of the house of Muhammad — peace be upon him. Ali was the first Muslim to convert after the Prophet was said to have been visited by the angel that brought God’s words to Muhammad. Those words were the Qur’an (the recitation). Fatima bint Muhammad — peace be upon her — was the daughter of Muhammad.

Ali and Fatima were two of the earliest Muslims. So the mystical fibre of Islam is root-deep.

2. Who is Allah?
Allah has the same roots as the Aramaic “El” and the Hebrew Elah. Allah literally means “The God.” “al” means ‘the,” and “elah” (or some variation of it) means “god.” God does not have a gender in Islam, though is referred to as “He” out of respect.

Yeah, I know, kinda messed up, but at least Muslims don’t actually think God is some guy sitting in the clouds. It is considered a grave violation and failing to give attributes to Allah, because as with anything, defining Him/It limits It/Him.

3. Islam and Peace
The Arabic words “Islam” (for the religion) and “salaam” (peace) are from the same Semitic roots; S-L-M. The word Islam means submission, and is taken to mean submission to God (similar perhaps to the expression “God-fearing”). It could as easily mean peace, purity, safety.

In common understanding, to be Muslim means to have surrendered your will to God; to have submitted one’s will to the grace of Allah.

4. Jihad
The word jihad has come to be synonymous with “holy war” in the American vernacular. It has been used by the Palestinian people to mean “uprising.”

Jihad actually means struggle.

“The best jihad is (by) the one who strives against his own self for Allah, The Mighty and Majestic,”
~ the Hadith (sayings of the Prophet Muhammad — peace be upon him)

5. Honoring Your Mother in Islam
There are many Hadiths (loosely; stories that offer the teachings of The Prophet) that beautifully address the role of the mother in Islam.

One such says:

I said to the Holy Prophet, “O Messenger of Allah, I desire to go on a (military) expedition and I have come to consult you.” He asked me if I had a mother, and when I replied that I had, he said, “Stay with her because Paradise lies beneath her feet.”

Another says;

I asked the Prophet who has the greatest right over a man, and he said, “His mother.”

One of my favorites goes like this: 

I asked, “Messenger of Allah, to whom should I be dutiful?” He replied, “Your mother.” I asked, “Then whom?” He replied, “Your mother.” I asked, “Then whom?” He replied, “Your mother.” I asked, “Then whom?” He replied, “Your mother.” I asked, “Then to whom should I be dutiful?” He replied, “Your father, and then the next closest relative and then the next.”

6. Marriage in Islam
While arranged marriage is still common in many Muslim cultures, any woman has the right to refuse a marriage match. And, while polygamy is considered lawful in Islam, a polygamous marriage may only occur where both (or all) women are in accord with the choice to be co-wives.

Divorce is legal in Islam, and a woman is guaranteed a divorce settlement even before marriage. Additionally, in marriage a man’s property becomes communal property by law, but a woman’s property remains in her own claim.

7. Sex in Islam

“Permitted to you on the night of the Fasts is the approach to your wives. They are your garments and you are their garments.”
(Qur’an, 2:187)

Obviously, Islam has a long way to go in regards to creating a healthy relationship with sex. (Still, don’t we all?)

Yes, it’s a homophobic religion, and one with strict regulation of sexuality beyond even that.

However, when sex happens within the container of the laws of Islam, i.e.; between a lawfully wedded woman and man, Islam (on the whole) has fewer sex-negative or sex phobic views than you would think.

Contraception is allowed, as is first-trimester abortion. In addition, sex has many extra-procreative purposes in Islamic faith, including deepening companionship between husband and wife.

“The Prophet himself, while not divulging all aspects of his own sexual life, was known for his nature as a loving husband who was sensitive and physically demonstrative. In several hadith, he speaks about the importance of foreplay and speaking in loving terms during sexual relations. Again, the concept of mutual satisfaction is elucidated in a hadith which advises husbands to engage in acts that enable a woman to achieve orgasm first. …Sexual dissatisfaction is considered legitimate grounds for divorce on the part of either wife or husband.”
 — Source.

There’s even the suggestion that sexual intimacy between man and wife is a gift of worship, and something a Muslim will be rewarded for by Allah.

Female circumcision is not an Islamic practice, but a tribal one that predates the introduction of Islam to the areas that practice female circumcision (aka FGM, or female genital mutilation). The vast majority of Islamic countries and cultures do not practice female circumcision at all.

In honor of Ramadan, the most holy month in Islam, I hope we can take a moment to honor the diversity of faiths that hold the world together, as much as they might tear it apart. While we share the air, we share breath. Let’s be inspired by each other. And allow the outer jihad to give way to the greater jihad; the jihad of one’s own soul.

The Fivefold Goddess: An Initiation into a New Vision of the Divine Feminine

Jailbreaking the Goddess text logo

sun-danceIn Jailbreaking the Goddess: the Initiation, we will follow her five faces deep into the process of individual and collective undoing, and then start again, weaving from a space more co-creative, more conscious, more integrated. Together we will come to know her five faces intimately, and thus know ourselves in new ways. We will do magicks large and small, and examine the ways in which our Work informs our daily work and works, and we will dig deep under the foundation of patriarchy to uncover the root of the deep knowing at the core of what is, through this radical revisioning, being revealed.

Things you should know about Jailbreaking the Goddess: the initiation before you commit to this Work (and play):999961_645633855472233_2032444184_n

  1. This work is deep. The potential for transformation here goes all the way to the root. In order to grow you must let go of old beliefs, habits, and patterns that are holding you back. Are you ready?
  2. Our circle is inclusive of all women and gender nonconforming people. Inclusive in this case means people of all genders except for male are welcome. If you are not comfortable with inclusivity, this space is not for you. But if you have been looking for this space, then WELCOME! <3
  3. We hold a “safer spaces” agreement together in order to maximize the growth potential and minimize the possibility of interaction-based trauma. Our circle will be a space where we create safety with a mind toward the social ills instilled by patriarchy – homophobia, transphobia, racism, male supremacy. Living within the patriarchy as we all do, there is always the chance of transgression. Part of creating safer spaces is agreeing to protocols for addressing said transgressions. Safer space must be created with active participation from all participants. If you do not trust yourself as capable of agreeing with us to hold safer space, then this circle is not for you. But if you have been looking for a spiritual circle with a safer spaces container, you have found it. Welcome.

I look forward to diving deep in our work together!beachplay6_hand-stamped-jewelry

The course includes:
•    Two interactive, confidential, sacred, sometimes silly, face to face, online gatherings per month (via Zoom) – a total of 14 live, online gatherings
•    14 workbooks designed to help you make the most of each gathering
•    Video recordings of gatherings
•    Audio recordings of gatherings
•    24/7, confidential, safe, strong online group space available for updates, process, support, sharing pix, prayers, rituals, discussing rough spots and breakthroughs in our personal and collective Works
•    Recorded visualizations for rituals
•    AND MORE to be revealed

garota feliz na praiaThis is the final time I’ll be offering this course in this format. Next year (2017) it will become a year-long program and will have a higher price tag.  But of course it will be worth it. I hope your positive and empowering experience in engaging in my current course (beginning in March) will encourage you to also sign up and support the next evolution of the Work in 2017.  (I will make every effort to create significant discounts for my returning serious students.)

The Bottom Line:
You know me.  And you know the work. You have already taken in, internalized, and moved in accordance with the spiritual self-revelations and personal epiphanies that are present in my teachings. You know the deep and transformative value of the journey I am dedicated to guiding you on.
