So much is coming into bloom at this time and I'm excited to share a bit with you.
I've just stepped into ceremony to prepare for entering my crone years. The culmination of the inner work I'm doing will be a community gathering and fire ceremony scheduled for the winter solstice. Any of you beautiful women who are interested in learning more about this ceremony, participating or supporting in some way, please contact me.
Along with this transition time has come a deep connection with my ancestors, particularly those of my female lineage. With the help of my mom, I've traced my motherline back six generations and am creating some artwork around these women to honor the gifts they've brought to my life.
I've been selected to speak at TEDx-Asheville on Sunday, November 4. It was an honor to be invited and, of course, a bigger honor to be selected from the many fine speakers who were nominated. Do consider attending; it would be wonderful to have your presence there. As well, I'm available to speak at your event. Please contact me.
Many new offerings are planned beginning in September. I do hope you'll consider joining me and other women in circle and creative time.
I'm very excited to offer a new 6-week Power in You series which begins September 25; details are found below. And by request, I've opened up a monthly Gather the Women sacred circle for those whose schedules won't allow committing to weekly circle (though some are requesting it be twice monthly - grin!). For those with young daughters, there will be a joyful new moon gathering and teaching circle for mums and their daughters.
There are several rich opportunities that await to nurture you this fall ~ including a healing doll workshop.
I'll be camping the next two weeks, so know that if you're in touch, I may not get back to you right away.
Remember that you are worthy of time devoted to yourself to touch into those sacred places within you and connect with the desires of your authentic self. Perhaps one of the offerings below will resonate with such desires.
I send you blessings for a colorful summertime season full of laughter and joy!
Much love, Anne

Spiritual Dowsing Workshop
October Date TBA
The teaching of blessings have been life-changing for me. Not only have they brought more balance to my life, but they have given me opportunity to develop deep awareness of my own energy body and how to identify shifts and bring things back to a balance point.
Dowsing or divining is the art of tapping into our own God-given ability to explore the world of subtle energies that are everywhere within and around us, subsequently drawing us ever closer to the Divine in our lives. [. . . Read more here]
