Aging is optional. (Interview with Dr. Christiane Northrup!)

Christiane Northrup

Did you know that you can actually become biologically younger this year than you were last year? Getting older is inevitable, but aging is optional, says Dr. Christiane Northrup in her newest book – Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality, and Well-Being. I am so, so, so rose-petal-tossing thrilled to share this […]

Inside, I knew something was missing.

Patty family

Sister Goddess Patty, Age 54 I was born in a car in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on my way to the hospital. In those days (1960), since my mother gave birth before arriving at the hospital, I was considered “contaminated” and had to stay in the room with her instead of the nursery. She had often told […]

Self-hatred is the New Smoking


It’s February. I hate February. Actually, it’s bigger than that. It’s winter I hate. Winter pisses me off. Cold. Grey skies, short days. Losing gloves. Black ice. February descends and my easy good times vaporize. Going to the gym is hard. Everything is complicated, and I don’t want to leave my house. My couch, to […]

Shacking up in Stuck-town?


So you’re stuck, huh? Have you tied yourself into a big fat twisted stuck-knot? Ugh. It’s the worst. Stuck is everywhere. And there are so many ways for it to show up . . . Stuck in a 26 year marriage, and it feels suffocating, sexless, and numb. Stuck because her whole life, she’s had […]

How the hell is this my life?


Sister Goddess Leslie, Age 41 When I walked through the doors of the School of Womanly Arts, I was getting a divorce at the age of 37. I was beyond devastated. On the other side of this journey, I am a proud new mama at the age of 41, partnered with my husband and best friend, […]

I have been playing creation games with my daughter, Maggie.
She’s in high school and I think it’s time that she understood the power she, and all women, have.
It’s time she apprehends the visceral power of desire.
I want her to learn that she has the power to attract whatever she wants.

But I also want her to know that the act of living into your desire is not just a game of mind control or thought control. It’s a get up off your ass game, as well.

So, we start with simple stuff.

It’s raining. We need a cab. We live on the Upper West side, along with thousands of other late-for-school families who also need a cab.
So, before we even hit the sidewalk, I have her imagining a taxi. We imagine this taxi slides right up to the front of our building, and we jump inside.
We feel this cab.
We put our mojo on it.
And then, we head out in the rain.

You + me, Live in NYC?

Did you ever have a thought, that became an idea, that turned into a reality, that was so much better than you could have ever imagined that it knocked your socks off before you even pulled them out of the drawer, and kicked your ass to a whole other level of knowing, undeniably, what is possible — not just for yourself, but for every woman?

I had one of those moments round about a year ago.

(In a hurry? The end of this story, and all the details are right here for you.)

I dreamed a dream of hundreds of women coming together, in NYC, in the most gorgeous sexy space, and diving deep into an Experience of sisterhood, exploding the depth and range of shared emotions, dancing with abandon, and facing, irrevocably and eternally, their own beauty, brilliance, sensuality, power and yes – most importantly – unleashing their voices, their true profound glorious voices, into the world.

I wanted to distill the most delectable 2-day tasting menu of the School of Womanly Arts Mastery Program.

And give eight hundred women a chance to encounter their potential in a sometimes shocking, always dynamic, deeply heartfelt and passionately delivered Experience.

And I wanted to make it completely free.

The result? We hit it straight out of the park.
Show stopping, heart throbbing and jaw dropping.
It was so much fun, so incredibly powerful, deep and raw.

This work is about connecting.
Connecting women to their emotional brilliance, connecting women to their power, connecting women to each other.

I loved the Experience so much, I’m doing it again this year, only even better.

A few days ago, we opened early registration to our graduates and the women who asked to be on the event update list. The Experience is currently at about 75% capacity.

This event will be full very soon, likely shortly after we push “publish” on this post. Before that happens, I wanted to make sure you knew all the details, in case you want one of the remaining seats.

If you miss registration, please do go ahead and add your name to the waitlist, and we’ll do our best to find you a seat.

Click here to read about the event and register (as space allows).

I hope to see you this Winter in NYC!

Women. We are all the same in this regard.
We all secretly want what we think is impossible.
And almost before we even can imagine the desire – we cross it off our desire list.
Sometimes it seems impossible because we have never had it.
Sometimes it seems impossible because we think it’s too much or too expensive or too outrageous.
Or too impractical.
Too complicated.
But life only begins to get truly interesting in the realm of the impossible.
What we can easily imagine will never truly satisfy us – at least not for very long.
It’s only when we push outside of what’s comfortable does life taste most sweet, and we can live with true generosity.

I wanted a horse.
I can’t really explain it.
But I know enough about my desires to not really have to question myself too much.  continue reading…

Thanksgiving 2014

I am up to my 15th thank you note.

And maybe I would have done it anyway. But not to this extent.

It’s this week.

And the spell that gets cast with this, my favorite holiday. continue reading…

Miami magic.

Do you know that feeling when every drop of you is spent, washed, wiped and savored — like the last bit of gravy soaked into a crust of the bread at the end of the most extraordinary meal — ever?

My team and I are awash in all the brilliance, beauty, sisterhood, magic, depth, breadth, emotional magnitude, transcendent beauty, and pure raw turn on of The Immersion: Miami.

When a long empty bucket gets filled inside of a woman, we all feel quenched.
Drenched from hours of dancing hard at the the pink party, drenched from a swim in the perfect blue water, drenched in tears, drenched in ecstasy.
When Sisterhood stretches her generous arms to include every single solitary woman, we are all restored.

The magic carpet of this trip began with a Creation Course intensive, followed by a luxurious spa day. Then, Virtual Pleasure Boot Camp students met each other live, for the first time, and on Friday night, The Immersion: Miami began at the Convention Center, stretching over 3 days of magic-making with women from all over the world.

And did I mention? I rode in on a white horse. Yes, really. I can’t wait until all the pictures are ready. Stay tuned.

In the mean time, here are just a couple of shots, to share a small slice of the Miami magic with you.
