I believe we must be brave enough to say "yes" to the things that make us happy!

Come to Glastonbury for YOUR very own SELF!

"Courage, Good Aliena!" As You Like It -William Shakespeare

The Glastonbury Pilgrimage!

Many of you have asked for the price of the pilgrimage to Glastonbury, England; I can happily announce that our retreat, which runs from April 30 - May 7, 2010, will be $1350, less than I had expected!

This price includes:
  • Transportation to and from Heathrow Airport to Glastonbury
  • 7 night's lodging (Little Orchard Guest House & Chalice Well)
  • 3 traditional English breakfasts
  • Beltane ceremonies at Chalice Well
  • Transportation to and from Stonehenge and Avebury
  • Private access to Stonehenge (May 2nd)
  • Access to sites in Glastonbury
  • Tour guide & lectures (Peter Knight)
  • Tour of the sacred landscape (the body of the Goddess) with Avalon Priestess, Kathy Jones
  • Ceremony in the Glastonbury Goddess Temple with Priestess Kathy Jones (May 5th)
  • Daily ceremonies and meditations everywhere we go!
We will have the entire Little St. Michael's lodging house at the Chalice Well from May 3 - 7th, so meals can be made in the kitchen and served in the dining room either individually or as a group, as we desire. Once we are in residence at the Chalice Well, we will have private access to the grounds at night, which is magical beyond words! You can see the fairies sparkling in the trees and grass everywhere!

Here are some of the places we will visit:

(Airfare to Heathrow not included.)

Carl Jung

Here's a very inspiring bit of encouragement from Carl Jung. Love this guy! He brought forth such wisdom during his time on Earth and changed the way we look at things. I am grateful for his life.

"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens."

– Carl Jung

I share a quote with you that encouraged me so much this morning as I sit here pondering who to send pitch letters to for my magazine articles:

"You miss 100% of the shots you never take."

– Wayne Gretsky

And here's even more inspiration from Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat, Pray, Love"

Come to Glastonbury, England for PERSONAL Inspiration! See earlier post: "Price for Glastonbury, England Retreat!"

Happy Friday - I'm off to Vermont to spend time with my Dad.

Honoring Black Elk

Our great Native American ancestors deserve to be recognized for holding the Light for the future generations. Today I honor the great Lakota shaman, Black Elk, with a quote from his life story:

"And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being."

- Black Elk

Priestess of FOI

I am overjoyed to announce that I have been officially accepted as Priestess to the Goddess in the lineage of the Fellowship of Isis. This is the fulfillment of a dream that will now enable me to officially train Priestesses who will then be recognized by the FOI upon completion of their studies and FOI requirements. I am so happy!

(See: to view the official announcement.)

Blessings to Darling Maddie!

I just found out that my Dear and Darling Friend, Maddie Russello, passed away this morning. She was one of the most pure-hearted individuals I have ever known, and beautiful beyond measure! In my life as an actress in my younger days, Maddie was part of the theater company I began with my best friend, Grete Fries and dancer, Meredith Evans. Our company was called "The Artery" and we did some amazing things for our community, including free children's theater and performances in nursing homes. During that time, Maddie developed a clown character called "Cupcake" who was most appreciated by the children we performed for. Cupcake was sweet like Maddie herself, and so cute! Maddie & I worked together all the time in those days, and most memorably in "Ex-Miss Copper Queen On A Set Of Pills" by Megan Terry, and in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in which Maddie was Hermia and I was Helena...

I will miss my glorious friend; may the Goddess bless Maddie in every way, keeping her safe and happy forever!

Glastonbury in May, 2010

I am just so overjoyed to announce that I am putting together a spiritual retreat for next May in Glastonbury, England! There's no place on earth like Glastonbury - the residents of this beautiful country town honor the Goddess, nature and the Kingdom of Faery more than anywhere else I've ever been. Imagine, just as an example of how it is there, that your "housekeeper" (at Chalice Well, where I at was this past May) sports glitter in the shape of a full moon on her forehead every day, and wonders if you've had any drink from the White Spring that comes down from the Tor, blessed by the Faery King, Gwen Ap Nudd!

We will (dream come true for me) celebrate Beltane (May 1st) at the Chalice Well, have private time at Stonehenge in the middle of the stones, and also be guided through not only Glastonbury, but Avebury and the ringstones there as well!

I am sooo excited and so very, very happy to be able to bring beloved ones with me as I return to my spiritual "home!"
