How it all began...
Blessed Be.  Blessed do.

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.

MorningStar Community

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.

Help support our cause! 

In our modern world, it is not easy to let what is natural be natural – to honor a knowing that existed before we did. It is even more difficult to preserve it. If it is not preserved within us, it will not be preserved in our families and communities, our policies, our hospitals, our schools or our nations. Most importantly, it becomes lost to our future generations.


Your contribution helps sustain the Holyland and the Spiritual Retreat Centre for Instinctual Living. The Centre offers programs of education and spiritual direction specifically for midwifery, childbirth, wellness therapies, yoga, as well as personal and collective spiritual retreats.  


We are a diverse community and I, the founder, am a woodland Mystic of Cherokee ancestry. I place all donations on my altar in Rose Cottage to receive a blessing of return for your happiness, health, wealth and holiness. If you send a donation, please include a love note.  


“I promise to live, in ever growing awareness, a life of simplicity; to give more than I take and to quiet the mind to single and simple purpose; to live with the knowledge that I am the temporary guardian of all I possess and to stand ready to share when love calls.”
