The Magical Qualities Every Teacher Needs

It seems that more than ever, we have incredible tension between taking time for ourselves - to be quiet and to connect inwardly and to contemplate - and to be out in the world with others, staying busy and doing things.

Why Women’s Spaces Matter

I’ve spent many years in women’s communities and I, myself, create spaces for women to come and do their sexual growth work with one another.
