Author's Bio

As an urban shaman, for the past 38 years, it has been my job to track and celebrate the cosmic cycles of the seasons, as well as the universal seasons of human life. It is my special concern to reconnect the urban population with the wondrous workings of the natural world. It is my particular passion to inspire and empower women to rise to their full potential, to step into their own sovereignty, and to become the Queens of their own lives. Now, when the planet is suffering from testosterone poisoning, it is crucial for women to accept the mantle of conscientious leadership. This is what I write about.
