Heal Yourself, Heal The World

feathered pipe

The world is deeply in need of healing. Civil wars are breaking out in countries across the globe. Children are starving. Global warming is turning natural disasters into catastrophes, destroying our habitats, and killing our animal species. The global economic crisis is destroying lives and breaking apart countries. Rainforests are disappearing. Soldiers are killing civilians and bragging about it. Women around the world are oppressed, abused, silenced, and killed if they dare to step into their power.

Buh-Bye, Superwoman! Celebrating the Holidays Like a Real Woman

Ever ask yourself why Wonder Woman never made it as a feminist icon? Because she’s not real – she’s The Impossible Woman.

2011 is the year I gave up on Woman Impossible and fell in love with real women, and my transformation was final last week when – in the midst of the work/holiday stress - I cancelled my annual-for-20-years Christmas party.

Practicing Love, With A Little Medicine On The Side

Lissa Rankin

As I wrote about here, I believe medicine is a spiritual practice because practicing medicine is all about being vessels for Divine love, so we can facilitate the process of self-healing for our patients.

But nobody ever taught me this in medical school. I learned it by merely being human.

Because of my ability to be both human and a doctor, I have always practiced love, with a little medicine on the side.

Women, Hold Your Men In The Paterno Fallout

joe paterno

I like to write about sex but lately I’ve been more taken with the gender-related power issues that swirl around sex in our society. Why? Because I think one of the reasons it’s so hard for women to own their sexuality is because of the way sex has been used to keep us out of our power. I’m not going to go into a rant about that here because (a) I’m tired of all that blaming and (b) you’ve heard it all before. But there is a shift in our world going on around men, women, sex, and power and it may be about to hit your father, husband, partner, sons and lots of guys you work with.

P.S. You: Penn State - The Lessons For The Rest of Us

penn state
Had Paterno or McQueary gone further in reporting the rapes and continued molestation, what do you think may have changed? The university­, local and county law enforcemen­t agencies worked hard to cover this up for 15 years because no one wanted to blow up the dream of PSU football.  I'm asking myself what the lesson is for the rest of us.

Why We Can NEVER Give Sexual Perpetrators the Benefit Of The Doubt

communityhealingcenter.org

I'm guessing every writer has a topic within them that is suppressed. This would be mine. I’d rather chat about living green, cowboys and pumpkin pie - anything over this. Frankly, I don’t want to write about pedophiles any more than you want to read about them, but, as we have seen with the Catholic Church and now with Penn State, our unwillingness to discuss and understand this issue is ENABLING it to fester.

Scorpio New Moon

scorpio new moon

Oo-la-la. There's a new moon in sexy, sizzling Scorpio today. Can you feel the power? There's nothing halfway about intense Scorpio energy, which can veer to the extremes. While Scorpio is associated with control, dominance and intensity, it also bears an incredibly powerful and spiritual energy. Scorpio is the ruler of transformation, making this a great week to really shift a part of your life that's felt blocked.

Access Your Power

I'm about to make a major admission of error. I am hereby fessing up to a seriously flawed paradigm that has informed much of my adult life, and, (crap, sorry, apologies in advance,) too much of what I've espoused.

Love Local: A Very Special Announcement for Anyone Trying to Save the World

love local

Hello, my name is Danielle and I'm a recovering Savior of the World. I used to think that my self-worth depended on my vegetarianism, my activism, futurism, my pro-this and anti-that. Had halo, would preach. Had 'isms, would teach.

Feminism Is Irrelevant (To Me)

Women Waiting

I’ve really gotten into women’s issues lately but in the process I’ve realized I’m not a feminist. I’m not sure I ever was, but now I’m sure I’m not! I’m a Feminista! There have been various “waves” of feminism , which make distinctions in the category of “promote women over (blank)”. The blank could be men, the system, everything else… it doesn’t matter. To me it all says, give us rights and opportunities because we’re women, we have great things to offer and you need us.
