The phrase “On Feminine Ground” stirs up thoughts from the very deep internal, personal to the big global picture. I have been attempting to find my own feminine ground for my whole life. It’s an ongoing practice in a world that seemingly does everything it can to take me up and away and knock me off center.  My values are often at odds with the dominant culture. After two millennia of denigration of the feminine, our task in this time... Read more

“Truth shall grow from the ground” Psalms 85:11 It is deep within the ground that seeds decompose and produce new fruit. The cycle of creation involves necessary destruction. Things are always in flow, in flux. My body- and all that it holds- is my ground. In the creation story in Genesis we learn that the human was formed from earth and then given life and spirit through the breath of the divine. The human is a magnificent coming together of... Read more

When I commune with nature in my backyard, a wild Everglade preservation, I come into a meditative state where heart and mind are one. I feel deep peace and reverence for all life, a sense of Oneness with Mother Earth and the cosmos. This state of bliss quiets my brain chatter and I become I am who I am, no better or lesser and in sync with creation. I would love to stay in this state while co-existing in the... Read more

The first time I heard the words ‘Reclaiming the Heart of our Humanity’, they took my breath away. Alison Fast, one of the young leaders in our Women of Spirit and Faith community, called to tell me she felt inspired to suggest these words as the theme of the 2015 Parliament of the World’s Religions. I gasped, that sharp intake of breath that occurs when my heart and my head simultaneously recognize I am in the presence of something powerful... Read more

As a Roman Catholic child, I was taught that the mothers were the hearts of the homes and the fathers were the heads. Yet, I was scorned by my mother and grandmothers and encouraged by my father. It is dangerous to assume that a world where women rule and men will submit will be any more balanced, or human, than our patriarchal world is now. It seems to me that claiming the fullness of being human, as opposed to simply... Read more

When we met across a table at the local poetry circle 35 years ago, the Divine Feminine was not on our minds. Admittedly, he was fresh back from the Spiritual Hippie Trail in India. His first thought on seeing me: That woman is going to be my wife. Second thought: That is a really strange thought.  My own thoughts were a confusion of  sexual interest and  a stern shake of the ‘you are with someone already’ variety.  But poetry brought us together. Robert Frost... Read more

The miracle of the relationship I share with my husband is a source of constant gratitude and amazement to me. Our life partnership is the center of our sacred space. We have lost several physical homes, but our spiritual home is in each others’ aura. Through our lives together, I have come to define “Love” as responsible and responsive compassion for another. The secret is that we are both totally naked emotionally.  We have been able to use the wounds... Read more
