To know me is to know that I am a

Renaissance Woman—a consultant and coach, an artist, scholar, writer, and fashionista. I am a lover. I am a friend to humans and more-than-humans. I thrive when all these various parts of me get to co-exist, express, and play.

I talk to butterflies. And birds. I talk to plants, animals, and trees. I listen to them and learn from them because while human beings may have access to certain higher levels of consciousness and cognitive abilities, I believe that plants and animals instinctively know more than most humans do about the wisdom of Nature and the magical web of Life—without pretense or projection. I believe they are our teachers if only we can learn to hear and respect their messages.

As a Renaissance Woman, I follow a path in Life of what I like to call Sovereign Beauty

 

Sovereign speaks to the self-imbued authority of every human being. As a female-identified person, this authority is the taproot that connects You to the depth of your inner truth, your distinctive wisdom and gifts, your goddess-given Beauty, and your singular Intelligence.

To be Sovereign means that You and You alone hold the seed of your precious and unique value in this world, something that though You may not always be in touch with, it is forever yours—and no one can take it away from you.  

 

Whether You realize it or not, You hold the keys to your being—your heart, mind, body, and soul—with an ever-present understanding of your Boundaries as well as your secret spaciousness, your yes’s and no’s (as well as the right to change your mind), your immense Power and your expansive Receptivity. Though You may need reminders of these abilities in you, they have been inside You all along, waiting for You to claim and embrace them.

 

Beauty is the ahhhh! of Life itself, the cherry on top of it all. The raison d’être. Beauty is the Divine made manifest in all sensual channels whether it appears as the iridescent bud of a flower, the intricate patterning in a succulent, or the enchanting wings of a butterfly. It is the scent of salty air as You approach the sea, the smell of fresh rain on the desert soil, and the aroma of your lover’s skin in the dark of night. It is the movement of your hips as You sway and swagger, the way your hand gestures when You laugh, and the way your hair lilts in the breeze. It appears in the melody of your favorite song, the tangy taste of lemonade on your tongue, and the scintillating sensations on your skin when a Beloved being embraces You.

 

Sovereign Beauty carries all of this within it. It is integral and generative.

It is Divine Creativity at its finest. 

 

Your Sovereign Authority + Your Experiences of Beauty =

A Nourished, Enlivened, and Embodied You
