… you know her…Divinity and Creativity, embracing our essence …
In her concluding words of Big Magic, author Elizabeth Gilbert leaves us with thoughtful words about this work we do:
Creativity is sacred, and it is not sacred.
What we make matters enormously, and it doesn’t matter at all.
We toil alone, and we are accompanied by spirits.
We are terrified, and we are brave. Art is a crushing chore and a wonderful privilege.
Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us.
Make space for all these paradoxes to be equally true inside your soul, and I promise–you can make anything.
So please calm down now and get back to work, okay?
The treasures that are hidden inside you are hoping you will say yes.
(Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic)
Our lives are sacred work… and all those paradoxes that go with it… We are blessed and blessing, human and divine, art and soul…wise women. Look in a mirror, deep in those eyes…and smile. – Anne

Summer Beach Group 2014 is only 2 months away… and I am looking forward with delightful anticipation! This year, we’ll be talking about GODDESSES–more specifically, Goddess Archetypes — ones that are ACTIVE in women over Fifty… Wise Woman Archetypes to empower and inspire our purpose, passions, creative intentions, voices, and visions! Together!!
At fifty a woman knows it’s TIME … NOW … to be, do, speak, stand fully and confidently into what she’s passionate about!
All of her life to this point has prepared her. There’s no more, “How old do I have to be before I’m an expert in this Life thing?” At fifty, a woman is a fully grown and powerful, intelligent and capable goddess. Half a century of living has taught her much. Her role has shifted to one of Leaving a Legacy; she is a Grandmother of all she has brought into this world–whether physically bearing children or not–and all she has experienced and accomplished.
A woman of fifty has much more to offer. And whatever she really wants to do, she is fully able, authorized, and capable to make happen–especially in an inspiring circle of amazing creative goddesses like herself!
Mark your calendars for Monday, June 16, 9:30-11 am, and meet me at the beach. More coming soon…
And if you’re a distance goddess, we’ll meet by phone on Thursdays…so you can be at whatever beach is near where you are.
To goddesses gathering and amazing unfoldings! – Anne
