Are you secretly PLAYING SMALL because you’ve been waiting for a BIGGER, MORE CONSCIOUS PLAYING FIELD?
ACHING to EXCAVATE your deep well of wisdom, courage, and soul-callings to help HEAL and RENATURE our denatured, patriarchal world?
No need to wait any longer.
WE’RE THE ONES WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!
It’s high time for us to shift from swimming upstream in today’s left-of-center margins to:
This MESSAGE IS FOR YOU if you have known in your bones—perhaps as early as grade school—that you were born to ALLEVIATE SUFFERING and DEVASTATION caused by INJUSTICE and IGNORANCE.
That you’re here to PLAY BIG and MAKE A REAL DENT but have been holding back and waiting for the RIGHT TIME to make your BOLDEST MOVES. You intuitively sensed that the PLAYING FIELD was TOO SMALL even though this made no sense whatsoever.
As a child, you didn’t get that EVERYTHING ABOUT YOUR SOULFUL MISSION that you now feel SO PASSIONATE and
PROTECTIVE about defies logic.
And like so many of your soul si-stars, who’re now awakening their sleeping dragons in mass numbers, you’ve also gotten the mysterious memo that the TIME TO EMERGE IS NOW and are super excited to WHIP OUT YOUR BEST MOVES.
Your passionate, trailblazing torch has dimmed down to meh lukewarm, if not futile ice cold. You can barely remember where you put your keys or what you had for lunch, let alone worry about saving the planet.
You’re competent, brilliant, and compassionate. You’ve got an arsenal of practical skills and knowledge that’s only getting bulkier and heavier. You know your stuff, inside and out, but you’re just not able to shift into the right gear, take charge of your dreamlife, and sustain doing the things that once got you fired up.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE, sister.
Many fierce, wise women get stuck in a classic double-bind that traps us into initiation frustration, sadly, for months, sometimes years.
The urge to defiantly SHINE YOUR BRILLIANCE in all of its glory—despite running the risk that your revolutionary soul callings may be misunderstood, mocked, and even ousted into oblivion—is AMPING UP...
... and simultaneously SQUASHED by SELF-DOUBT, inexplicable TERROR, and PRESSURE TO TAME and TONE DOWN your threatening, trailblazing ideas as soon as you approach a new edge of growth and vulnerability.
Understandably, these COOPED-UP ENERGIES and this CHRONIC DEVALUING of our true nature and soul's purpose create INNER HAVOC that often gets MINSINTERPRETED and PATHOLOGIZED as some kind of mental disorder.
#METOO, my friend, I’ve been there— as a graduate student in clinical psychology, I was certain that I fit the criteria for at least half a dozen DSM diagnoses.
These STORIES OF SELF-BLAME that we unwittingly adopt crush our heart and spirit.
What we need instead is profound RE-WIRING, RE-MEMBERING, and RE-MINDING that can only happen on a soul level with skilled guidance and support.
These neglected parts have been waiting patiently, COMPLETELY INTACT BUT DROWNED OUT by louder voices. They just need to be AMPLIFIED, ENERGIZED and HEARD.
They are like a TIME-RELEASE PILL waiting for YOUR GREEN LIGHT and a WOOWOO-FRIENDLY PLAYING FIELD where you can safely reveal all of your subtle gifts and hidden gems and are wildly celebrated for who you are and what you have to offer.
Your soul needs a CONSCIOUS PLAYING FIELD and game rules that honor equality, respect, and inclusion of the socially marginalized, but most powerful parts in you. A MYSTERY-INFUSED PLAYING FIELD that is both level and multidimensional.
That recognizes that this double-bind is your greatest challenge and teacher in life —
that your PURPOSE and POWER lie in your NUANCED INSIGHTS and unstoppable determination to close these painful gaps between yourself and others with authentic communication and connection.
This TESTED-AND-TRIED PLAYING FIELD is steeped in deep understanding of this PARADOXICAL TRUTH: that by fully connecting to your soulful, wise self, you will automatically connect to the
DYNAMIC WHOLENESS and GREATEST GOOD of all around you.
... is my signature self-healing model especially designed to empower awake and devoted pioneers like you by helping you to more fully own, re-guard, and expand your potent impact and soul’s work.
With GAIA’s GRACE and GUIDANCE from the SACRED 7 DIRECTIONS and your OWN DREAMTEAM of SPIRIT GUIDES— which are the KEY INGREDIENTS of my SECRET SAUCE— you'll learn to target and CLEAR DEBILITATING IMPRINTS that held you back and create a COMPACT, ELEGANT SOUL SANCTUARY that will alchemize your growth and transformation from:
With the help of a personal TREE guide, you’ll connect to the ABOVE principle of the As Above – So Below idiom. This helps your disconnected ego-mind to transcend itself, adopt a spiritual orientation, and open up to cosmic guidance from our star ancestors, Father Sun, and the Galactic center. Dropping into your roots will allow you to draw mineral, elemental, plant, animal, and ancestral guidance and nourishment into your body, and connect to the principles of darkness, mystery and the unseen of the BELOW dimension. Your mind will start to align with paradox and the life, death and rebirth cycles of the divine Goddess, Grandmother Moon, the seasons, circles and spirals of Mother Nature. This spiritual process and orientation sets you up to most effectively hack the linear, chronological, rational, and polarized worldviews that we operate from on a regular basis.
This Wisdom guide breathes more spaciousness in any tense situation and dislodges your ego-mind from familiar, but false, stories and beliefs. It helps you to face the big picture, the long view, and your highest truth, and offers creative insight, fresh perspectives, and resolutions by using your imagination, intuitive ingenuity, and extrasensory psychic powers to problem solve.
This PROTECTION guide is fueled by your life energy and passions, and helps you to set healthy boundaries. Just like a fever, anger tells you where your energy fields begin and end, and when you’re under threat. Its ultimate goal is to re-establish peace and balance, not burn without limits to hurt and control others. Rekindling and reigniting your relationship with this steady source of heat and passion is essential in regulating your energy, outlook, and moods.
This GROUNDING guide helps you to keep track of your organic growth in tangible ways. There are ways to measure your progress and mastery around all aspects your being, including your spirituality. Earth provides structure, has your back, and allows your mind to align itself to Mother Nature’s slow pace. It helps you to become more patient, stop comparing yourself to others, and ground and enjoy the blooming of your flowers and sun-ripening of your fruit in your own time.
This sensual SOOTHING guide offers comfort and clarity by interpreting your needs and e-motion — your energy in motion. It cleanses, nourishes, and detoxes your heart, mind, body and soul with your tears, sweat, blood, and fluids, and invites you to engage in the wonder-filled flow of life by making oceanic space for your emotional depths and letting go of judgments and fear.
Your CRYSTAL CLEAR COMPASS lies at the nexus of each of these elements and births new life and possibilities out of paradox and your chrysalis. It’s the place where luscious lava kisses air and water to form fertile, dark land. You are a similar, dynamic work of art, constantly dissolving and reorganizing creative energy that moves through you into more highly integrated expressions of consciousness in likeness of our Earth Mother. Within this realigned, clear heart space you will do a SOUL PURPOSE RETRIEVAL and get clear, practical guidance what steps are needed to stay your course.

I believe that the most effective way to heal and renature our denatured, patriarchal world is by excavating and supporting women’s deep wells of wisdom, bold dreams and game-changing missions. My two decade devotion to awakening fierce, wise women has led to the empowerment of hundreds of trailblazers in the fields of psychology, holistic health, academia, the arts, renewable energy, social justice, and entrepreneurship through my workshops, online presence, and at my holistic private practice, the Sacred Healing Well. Within the transformative framework of my signature Soul Sanctuary Alchemy self-healing model, I teach these brilliant women how to cultivate unwavering trust in their creative powers, clarity and intuitive ingenuity that’s honed by Gaia’s sacred 7 directions and their own dreamteam of spirit guides.
My work has appeared in Elephant Journal, Rebelle Society, and Byrdie. I have presented multiple times at the UC Berkeley Counseling Center and Native American Health Center, and have been interviewed by the Amazon Conservation Team, Divine Insight, All Things Therapy, Conscious Talk, Good Vibrations, Power your Life, and more.
I plan on reserving 10% of all enrollment fees to develop and offer a similar, low cost online course that will serve high-risk indigenous and other low-income youth who lack access to quality resources.
