“My pursuit of Women’s Rights had evolved into Women’s Rites and this was my next adventure.” –Ayla (Chrysalis Woman)
I am a doctoral student in women’s spirituality at Ocean Seminary College and ordained as a Priestess with Global Goddess. I am currently conducting research on contemporary priestessing in the U.S. I completed my M.Div degree in 2014 and my MSW in 2000. My roots are in birthwork and I find that this root is intimately tied to my interest in the Goddess and in feminist thealogy. This blog began as a place for me to share my musings on women’s spirituality, thealogy, theapoetics, the Goddess, and a little touch of sociopolitical commentary. It also serves as a place for me to store readings/poems/prayers that I’d like to save for later or for future reference.
I am a blogger at the Feminism and Religion website and at SageWoman magazine. I am a former writer for the Pagan Families blog on Patheos as well. I am the author of a book about Womanrunes, a divination system created by the late Shekhinah Mountainwater.
