When we cannot see the path…

This has been a most extraordinary week. I know it seems I open every Notes from the Field with this sentence, but this has been a most extraordinary year, hasn’t it. And this past week felt like it encapsulated the whole wild story of 2020. On Tuesday, we held the first Mother Moon Yoga on…

Is yoga prayer? Is Mother Moon Yoga a prayer intensive?

I am a Prayer Artist. Not because I decided I was. How could I? I’d never heard of such a thing. And neither had anyone else. I know this because when I googled prayer artist, nothing—I mean nothing—came up. But I clearly heard those two words whispered in my left ear in the wee hours…

Anxiety? Disturbed sleep and digestion? Mother Moon Yoga is coming!

I have much to share with you today—the big news is that Mother Moon Yoga will be open later this week. But first, I have a question: Do you feel a slight tickle on your cheeks? That’s me! That’s all the kisses I blew at the computer screen as I read email after email from so…

She called me a witch…

“Most men have never had to fear sticking out from the crowd far enough to elicit the heart-stopping accusation of ‘Witch!’ Ancient female wisdom–medical and otherwise–accumulated painstakingly over eons went up in flames along with the ‘witches.’ How to calculate and comprehend how much European civilization lost when its men nearly annihilated its wise women?”…

How to hear the story that heals

“When I read the finished poem, I realized that I had never written anything like it before. The normal buffer between the inspiration for a poem and the poem itself was entirely absent. I wasn’t sure how it had happened, and I wasn’t sure I could do it again. Two days later, having failed to…

Episode 31: Clark Strand

This is a conversation like any other on Praying at the Speed of Love. Because the conversation isn't really with Clark Strand. It's with Ma Kali herself. And she's quite the conversationalist!

What really happens when you make one tiny choice to write

Writing Down Your Soul, the book you all know and love, was published 11 years ago on January 1, 2009. This was not the date I planned. I turned in the manuscript on November 11, 2007 and thought she would come out the summer or fall of 2008. But the timing was clearly divinely appointed.…

The opposite of patriarchy isn’t matriarchy, it’s …

This has been and continues to be a most extraordinary year. And I don’t think we have even begun to understand what is afoot. We came into 2020 with a knowing that everything was about to change—every astrologer has been saying that. They’ve been beating the drum of change since 2015. Each year has had its…

Sorrow is Speaking

In last Sunday’s Notes from the Field, I shared a few radical truths that I received at the center of the labyrinth and promised to tell you what happened on Saturday, July 25 that explains the direct parallel between what patriarchy has done to women and what patriarchy has done to prayer. However, I’m going to…

What was done to women is what was done to prayer

I was awakened in the wee hours last Sunday morning and clearly heard: “What was done to women is what was done to prayer.” I thought I understood—at least a little—what that meant. Because I’ve been studying what was done to women under patriarchy, and, as a prayer artist, exploring how gorgeous prayer was before…
