A creative wildness can be felt rippling through the earth. Bursting forth from deep in the land. Deep in Gaia. Deep in humans. The animals. The trees. All of nature.
As if the whole world is coming alive. Into a potent delicious divine harmony.
A thick honey that we can touch.
|As many are aware, this beloved planet is changing. More and more people are sharing their truth. In fact this has become the buzz phrase for many. This strong pull to share our message, our gifts, our truth into the world. Healers, teachers and guides offering their unique perspectives and maps. Sharing through gatherings. Through books. Through poetry. And art. A deep longing for self-expression can be felt everywhere.
But what does this phrase ‘sharing your truth’ really mean? Have you taken some moments to go inward and check with your heart? Your body? Your soul?
And does it include all of you?
While this pull to evolve is essential. We sometimes get caught up in the pull. And forget to slow down. Breathe. And hold these callings as sacred. As inner treasures. Allowing them to become fully tended to and alchemized. In the fertile dark.
Firmly planted yet vulnerable. Like a blooming flower who surrenders to the beauty of all her cycles. Cherishing them within. A silent sensorial communication.
For someone as myself who is a truth weaver, this has been especially potent. Those of us who have delved into those dark places and have come to know ‘the dark’ as our truest soul calling. Those who feel that fertile dark as the most sacred place on earth. And in the cosmos.
In some ways, this newsletter is especially devoted to you.
This journey of going into the secrets of my soul (and the earth’s soul) has been anything but easy. With a herstory of being excluded. Pathologized. Projected upon. And even demonized. For my love of the dark.
Living in a world of medicating or transcending our discomfort. Our pain. Our shadows. As if they are separate from our essence. Rather than letting our human hearts hold us in our real raw truth. Warts and all.
Anything deemed different, weird, uncomfortable or human has been shamed. Numbed. Burned. Silenced. So it’s understandable why so many have been afraid to ‘go there’.
This has been my Life’s Work. To go there. To this untapped aliveness. And desire. To go there with myself. And with my clients. To be a pioneer into the wonder of the weird. The wonder and awe of different.
Where our shadows are the very thread into The Sacred. Into our magic. And true power.
So for anyone feeling oppressed. Alone. Rejected. Gaslighted for being different. For your love of the dark. Of deep intimacy. I have been there. And I have learned that these hidden facets of our soul are the spaces of true freedom. Of liberation. Through a mysterious alchemical dance.
A profound and potent fierce love.
Its power. Immense. Humbling. Tender.
An endless fountain of divine honey to drink from.
A threshold where The Sacred awaits. Where our ancestors await. To hold us. To guide us. Where we are cherished. In the fierce tender love of Gaia.
As we enter into this month’s new moon in Gemini (sensitive communication; playful; whimsical), I invite you to gently step into this threshold. By following the holy thread of your shadows. The ‘you’ that you’d rather cast away.
Where our disavowed soul facets await to be integrated. To come home. To fully unleash our luminous soul song.
Into our own precious heart.
|I will leave you with this exquisite quote I learned from my ‘Deep Love’ mystery school teacher. I’m not sure of its origin. But allow your breath to tenderly weave the words into your body. As we continue through this metamorphosis into a deeper more nourishing energy on this beloved planet. A beautiful harmony of both seeking AND receiving. Of movement forward AND deeper within.
I am not where you are going.
I am the place you leave to find me.
|P.S. Many of you know I recently wrote a book with 15 other women titled “Turning Point: Empowering Stories to Activate the Divine Feminine Within”.
I’m so excited to share with you that I am now offering my chapter as an eBook titled “Celebrate the Fall: My Mythic Journey Home”.
You pay whatever you want. And ALL proceeds will be split evenly between two charities. Both stand for freedom. Freedom of expression and freedom from oppression. One supports human rights; the other, animal rights.
Here is a link to my website’s home page Dancing in deLight where you can purchase my eBook and learn more about the charities and my mission.
Thank you so much!

As I share mine, I invite you to contemplate your own… in this moment.
I taste honey.
I smell roses.
I hear the whirring of my laptop’s fan.
I see the stump of a tree who was just cut down.
I touch my aching heart.
