Interested in spiritual intelligence and how to speak to your visions beyond the psychological model? Are you called to honor your ancestral DNA with all of its horrors and hopes? In search of the confidence to serve as an artist, healer, or spirit worker? Challenged by some gift that Spirit wants you to incorporate?
In this Hidden Monastery we play with the Art of Being Ensouled, I cllaim body wisdom as integral to Life’s mystery, seek to speak plainly and humbly about injustice and restore our imagination and power to realize health in all relations.

Some of us are born mystics. Grace is our life’s work. But its not an easy vocation. We struggle with being seen and even how to practice.
I know how tricky it is to find spaces that embrace our spiritual hunger to dance, play, pray, think, serve, enjoy humor, be down to earth and always open our hearts in community. Because of this we are often hidden. Hidden can be just a word for “too big to be seen.” Great Love is un-pin-downable. You know you are connected to everything. Yet, often we seem to play just to the left or right of visibillity. Here is my prayer for you as one in the hidden monastery
To bring body AND soul fully online and into the world we need art, contemplation, the technologies of divine communication, wise companionship. And today, one more thing is needed. Community. May this space serve you.
I’m in this dance for keeps. You can read about my journey in Chasing the Dance of Life. To stay lightly or deeply connected I welcome your subscription.Or Email me directly here. Many blessings.

Words are only one way to say thank you. Each being naturally gives back energy, love, and appreciation for life.

I send you greetings from Australia just as sun is setting on September 11 Rosh Hashanah 5779. I was so moved by Irwin Keller’s writing in his blog Itziks well regarding this difficult and holy time that I want to share it. Irwin is a Rabbi in Sonoma County. Ellen Solot,… Read more
I have a laundry list of tough things: family deaths, addictions, fires, politics, upheavals, the vulnerability of new life in a world where housing, health care, and work feel daunting. It’s too big to carry. I tell myself not to run the list but then I worry I won’t remember… Read more
We are in a season of three eclipses and mercury went into retrograde yesterday. For months I have been listening to extraordinary impacts on so many of us sensitives and going through them as well. Things are happening that test us on every level. I am more grateful than ever… Read more
As a woman and a mother I know of hidden cruelty. But to see it publicly endorsed? Action is needed, and so too is emotional and spiritual grief support for those of us too familiar with this reality. It’s a hard thing to be still, to breathe, or to even… Read more
