Understanding the Seven Rites of Passage for Inner Transformation

Hello my dear Friends,This episode's focus is on the Seven Rites of Passage or the Seven Universal Rites of Passage, which is taking place all the time in our lives.

Acknowledging The Feminine Face of the Divine

Acknowledging the Feminine Face of the DivineThis episode is about facilitating women’s empowerment groups with the sole goal of bringing women together to share our experiences and find the commonalities in our stories, as well as support each other in the challenges we face. As a facilitator, I can attest to the growth we all experience at the end of the seven-week conversations. We bonded, with our identities fully expressed spiritually, ceremoniously, using music, song, meditation, drums and an exciting array of food, and desserts! Our sense of self is identified in the everyday experiences of our lives and for [...]

Embodying Praise: Sacred and Authentic Movements

We have a saying in many communities in Africa that says that "if you can talk, you can sing; and if you can walk, you can dance." This episode's focus in on Embodying Praise through dancing, and movement. It is one of my favorite sayings because it tells us that we have been gifted with an instrument of great Spirit to experience life. When we lose body wisdom, we lose the opportunity to dance and praise or celebrate the sacred.In native and indigenous cultures, the word sacred is embodied and it is manifest in many forms, including movement. One of [...]

Celebrating Life in the Moment! “Only happy people can make a happy world”.

In this episode, I talk about celebrating life in the moment. When you listen to the news, especially these days, you can’t help but feel gloomy. You are told the world is coming to an end and everything in our experience is atrocious. But then you look again, and there are beautiful moments all day long that we can celebrate, with our families, friends and even acquaintances. We still have sunrise and sunsets, we still have clouds, rainbows, rain, food, et cetera. Let's be happy for whatever seems little. It is still something!Reflection with Article by René Dubos, Pulitzer Prize [...]

Cultivating a Spiritual Practice with Love!

Spiritual Practice connects us to our Source and sustains us through our challenges.Let us Journey on, putting one foot in front of the other! I love poetry! So I chose love and poetry for the theme to reflect on the various transformations we on or may still be on. It seems some of us are still going through some type of transformation, and there may be a myriad of changes that we have to come into alignment with to create balance. My change has aligned more with Pablo Neruda’s poem La Poesia (1975), in which he states that there comes a time in [...]

Being a Queen in Your Own Life: A Reflection.

In this episode, I am integrating what seemingly is going on in the outer world with Queen Elizabeth’s passing and Holding the Holy Vision of the Feminine conversations that we have discussed in a couple of previous episodes. And the topic I addressing is, how we are being queens in our lives? I am in a private conversation with my soul sisters in a different group and I thought it appropriate to extend this conversation to all my listeners, where each woman can really take a moment to dissect and incorporate their own ideas about what it means to be [...]

Celebrating the Sacred and the Ordinary in Becoming Woman!

Celebrating the Sacred and the Ordinary in Becoming Woman is about our first initiation into womanhood and how we felt about it. There are three stages in a woman's life--the virgin, mother and crone. The embodiment of each stage is pertinent to how we feel about ourselves in the present. We go through these rites of passage either appreciating them as sacred moments or dismissing them as ordinary. In understanding the Holy Vision of the Feminine, it is important to revisit the first rite of passage, or first initiation into womanhood, examine managed the process. We all have stories to [...]

Understanding and Holding the Holy Vision of the Feminine Within!

In this episode, I discuss the Holy Vision of the Feminine Within. If we look at the conditions women continue to live all over the world, we recognize that there had been a deliberate erosion of feminine images (example the Orisha goddesses) that showcased strength as in the daughters of the ancient mothers Yemoja, Osun and Oya who came to the earth to awaken and refine qualities of nurturance and strength (Yemoja); beauty and Love (Osun) power and passion (Oya). I discuss all forms of violence against women, including rape and how that experience impact body armoring, sexuality and intimacy [...]
