I was dreaming up the Ensoulment course in 2013 and wondered what to call it. I stopped to ask LOVE and touched a ruby pendant on the necklace I wear. Ruby? Googling Ruby the first thing that popped up was. “Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, general-purpose object-oriented programming language… first designed and developed in the mid-1990s by Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto in Japan.”
Ruby is one of the four hardest and most valuable gems worn throughout the ages for many reasons and I inherited a star ruby ring from my Mother who had danced on roller skates and wore it as a sign of self-love.
Its been a year since the name came. Now a form to share it with you has emerged!
I’m excited to dance with you for a year of live, online Monday Meetings at 5pm pst guiding participants through practices in Dance: The Sacred Art: Discovering the Joy of Movement as Spiritual Practice.

The Story of Naming the Ruby Way.
My husband Stephen and I were at a favorite restaurant for our 34th anniversary. After giving me a fun card, out of nowhere he slipped me a wee box, not wrapped. Happy Anniversary! We’d been married 5 rounds of 7, each cycle just long enough to get fed up with something about us. Fortunately, as we also maintain lots of desire to be together we’d rededicated our marriage the year before, choosing to say words we were scared to say int the beginning, “Til death do us part.”
I opened the box and in it was a ruby that Stephen set into a necklace. It had no chain. (love that) I had no idea or desire for a ruby or any gift of this nature. It came out of the blue as a sign of his love. Later that night we bought a silver chain. Today I wear it.
When I researched the ruby this struck me
A powerful symbol of the sun, Ruby is believed to contain the bloodline of humanity. Its glowing radiance suggests an inextinguishable flame within the stone that cannot be hidden, as it would shine through clothing or any material wrapped around the gem. An exaggerated Eastern legend says according to the Talmud, Abraham, when keeping his numerous wives held in an iron city, in order to give them light, set a bowl of Rubies in its midst which filled all the air with luster. [Mella, 103][Kunz, 101][Fernie, 139, 142]
Throughout history Rubies have been considered perfect wedding stones. Their association with love, marriage, balance and royalty has held fast throughout time. Ancient Egyptians honored Ruby for beauty and love, protection and good fortune, and Eastern cultures considered Ruby a spiritual stone representing the beauty of the soul.
Today I allow this elemental to work on my behalf. As my new favorite saying goes MORE SHALL BE REVEALED!
