How it all began...
I am a keeper of story. I am a woodland Mystic. A story teller and a preserver of the sacred feminine. I was 12 years old when I started my first wimyn’s study group. It seemed to me that wimyn needed to get together to talk about what was going on in their lives and what was going on in their hearts. It seemed to me, even as a young budding female, that wimyn’s issues were important and that we often died spiritually long before our bodies died. I began to notice how closely the body and mind and soul were interconnected and that healing and peace and happiness came first to the spirit and left there first as well. That the body followed where the spirit led. I noticed also that wimyn in isolation were trapped, scared, sad, depressed and hopeless not so much in their outer circumstances but within. All that seemed to change when they could be with other wimyn and begin to talk openly.
In 1993 my three divine daughters and I settled on what grew into 150 acres of natural living space in the Ozarks of Missouri. Over the next 25 years the initial wimyn's circle grew into a community. We are called MorningStar Community (MSC) and where we gather under the stars is The Holyland. You can read more about us here and on facebook. The following is the principle we live by and the primary message I carry into my work.
To say that we honor the wildish nature is to say that we find sacred and
encourage in our selves and our kinsters the ways of instinctive knowing,
of inner growth and spiritual expansion, of innate community building,
and the passing on of wisdom through ritual and storytelling.
Our sisterhood is now a global community. Join us.
