Episode #9 Relatively Speaking
I bought my partner a 23 and Me kit. In this episode, we wake up in the morning to her 23 and Me email and we are so excited to compare our results we decide to turn the recorder on. Our dynamic will make you laugh as we try to discern how our ancestry effects our current relationship. This will be the most unscientific explanation of DNA because we know nothing about it.

I start talking to a mentor who helped teach me how to hold space for other women. She was also a dear friend of Marissa (my friend who recently passed away). So we got a little side-tracked talking about our final moments with her. Terri Gregory once owned Mamere's B and B, she is a parenting coach, author and just a really fun lady. I also speak to two friend who joined a circle of mine in 2013: Cynthia and Sydney. Take a listen!
Episode #7 Voices from the Ancient Women's Circle
I asked my beloved to interview me about my new book and retreat this fall. The book is called, Mending the Circle a Facilitators Guide to Reviving the Ancient Women’s Circle. I'll tell you the story of a how the Ancient Women’s Circle was born. The thread through this series is me processing the recent passing of my friend Marissa, ours was a 18 year friendship with plenty of ups and downs and lots of learning and love. I have a deep desire to encourage women to gather. The best part is getting to hear voices from circle participants from the past. Sort of a where are they now all these years later.

Meet Emily a high powered architect who has been madly in love with her hunky glass blower boyfriend for 4 years. The first time she comes for an intuitive session she wants to discuss her relationship; her sweetie KC is battling a mysterious illness that is making them grow apart. She returns 2 years later to let me know that he has passed from cancer.
I know this story is a tear jerker. But it’s also real life. The gems here are plenty. Pay extra attention to how they both got to talk about their meaning to each other, in this life and beyond. It’s a rare and sacred opportunity to experience this couples story. Emily & KC were enlightened enough to discuss the process and reflect while in the situation.
