Dearest Beloved ~
How often have you heard the old patriarchal story “That’s just the way it is. You can’t change it.
It’s always been that way.” ?
I recently read about Zero Point energy and the basics of quantum physics.
I laughed. I giggled. I very nearly shouted “I knew it!”
Which is true. I did know it. Always. In my bones. In my blood. In my heart.
I knew that there never was such a thing as “the way it is”.
During my years as pastor I heard this story a lot.
“But Pastor, it’s just the way it is.”
“We can’t do it that way, because this is the way it has to be done…has to be seen…has to be heard.”
“We can’t let them in, because that’s not the way it is.”
I hear it now in the Presidential election in my country ~
“We can’t do it that way, that’s not how it works, who we are, what it means to be American.”
“We can’t agree to that because “they” aren’t right, aren’t the way it works, the way people are supposed to be…”
This is a BIG, JUICY old patriarchal story that absolutely, positively NEEDS to be RETOLD!
It sounds like this: “There is a right way to do, see and be and this way doesn’t change. It shouldn’t change.” The story wraps up telling you that “You don’t like change. Change is hard.
Change is a sign of instability. Do whatever you can to keep it all “the way it is.”
WooWee, Yessiree ~ this one is a doozee.
It’s one of the insidious, sneaky old stories that gets into your heart, mind and spirit without you knowing.
Maybe you’ve heard yourself saying something like “I don’t do change ~ or ~ change and I do not get along.”
I heard it from a beloved just the other day. She said “I don’t do well with change.”
I invited her to pause for a moment to see if we can retell it another way. She agreed.
“What if you tell the story like this: Change is happening all the time, and some of it I really love and thankful for.” We talked about some examples of how this is true. She brightened.
We went on retelling it: “Some change feels uncomfortable, and, I know that change is actually an indicator of life, so I can more easily surrender and go with the flow.”
She smiled. “Wow, that feels so totally different.”
And that is JUST THE BEGINNING!
Think about it, beloveds.
- What IF…there is nothing that is static or unchanging? What if…there is nothing but potential, possibility, opportunity?
- What IF…there isn’t just one way to order ourselves as society?
- What IF…there is more than way to be a woman, a mother, a lover, a daughter?
- What IF…there is more than one way to earn a living, make money, receive abundance?
- What IF…there is more than one way to tell the story of value, worth and what it means to be enough?
- What IF…there is more than one way to tell the sacred stories of divinity, spirit, redemption and forgiveness?
I am here to tell you that there IS. Without a doubt. Without question.
Science is catching up to what the ancient sages, shamans, wise women and priestesses already knew…there is no such thing as “the way it is.”
There is always ~ ALWAYS ~ more than one side to every story! Which sounds so simple, and yet, is a tidal wave of insight to the old system that gave you one set of stories and guidelines to live by.
We were all given a set of patriarchal stories to order our lives around. It’s the way we were taught to see and understand the world.
You’ve done all that these stories told you to do.
You’ve checked the boxes ~ earned your degrees ~ put in the hours ~ climbed the ladder
You made the appropriate promises ~ said “Yes” to all the necessary invitations
You held up and supported the institutions the stories gave you as right, correct, “the way to go.”
- You paid attention and learned “how it is”
- You are smart
- You are educated
- You are used to doing it all right
- Lately you’re wondering if there really is such a thing ~ a “right way” to live, to be…
You’re looking at your life from a perspective that asks a lot of questions
“Is this really all there is?”
“If I did it all like I was supposed to, then why don’t I feel better, freer, happier?”
“Why do I still wonder if I matter? If I’m good enough?”
You find yourself reading, wondering, searching for new ideas ~
You’re asking “Can there be another way?”
You feel like you’re edging closer to a precipice that feels a little dangerous and exciting ~
You want to look over and see what else is out there…
You fantasize that there are other stories, other possibilities, other options for you…
And you’re on the verge of taking that seriously and finding them. Finding YOU. For REAL. And risking the possibility of LOVING YOU ~ once and for all.
You’re ready to write, tell and embody a NEW story.
I am here to help you do just that ~ to tell a new story. I know the stories you have lived by and I know how to retell them so that YOU are the author of the stories YOU want and believe for your life.
What do I know about retelling stories?
Well, the retelling of stories has been my life. I’ve studied them academically; earning a graduate degree in biblical theology, women in sacred scripture and teaching ethics and religion at University for 10 years.
I’ve taught them to thousands of people as a university instructor, pastor & preacher, retreat leader, workshop and conference speaker and as a family and couples counselor.
And mostly, I’ve witnessed my own stories, dismantled them, and changed my entire life again and again and again.
And I’m doing it again now. Through my incredible One-Woman show that retells the sacred patriarchal stories of scripture from the side of the feminine. “From Eve to Me” is the result of Re-Telling Patriarchal Stories!
The powerful, potent and playful results of what happens when you take the RISK to Re-Tell old, well-known and largely accepted patriarchal stories is UNLIMITED!!
Now is the time to do it beloved!
- Because the universe is primed for evolutionary change and shift ~
- Because the summer months moving into fall harvest is naturally aligned for blossoming ~
- Because I have space to give my energy, wisdom and knowing to YOUR unlimited possibilities at this
potent time ~

Beloved, I am inviting you to spend the next 3 months with me ~ ReTelling Patriarchal Stories and ReShaping Your Life to reflect YOUR awesome, authentic essence.

What you do absolutely matters to the overall flow…
