Why Should Women Pay Attention to the Moon?

I was recently asked why should women pay attention to the moon? There are two answers to that. The first is rather practical. If you were going to be caught in a thunderstorm or heat wave, wouldn’t you prefer to know about it in advance so that you can prepare? Knowing about the moon phase […]

Finding the Sacred on the Battlefield

A battlefield is not your typical place that a sacred seeker finds the divine. I mean, who ever heard of a sacred battlefield? If all life is sacred, then God is here too. On our last trip to Scotland, we stopped at the Culloden Battlefield where between 1,500 and 2,000 Jacobites and 300 government soldiers […]

Living Small

One of the most profound discoveries I came back from our sacred travel tour of Scotland with is the idea of living small. That runs so counter to the western programming of bigger, better, faster. We’re always reaching for higher heights. When you realize how small you are, it’s easy to laugh at that and […]

Sleepwalking on Mull

I didn’t spend a lot of time on Mull. We caught a late ferry and had to scoot to get to Iona. The weather was dreich (dreary). I am sure that impacted the way things felt there. Honestly, it felt like the world was sleepwalking on Mull. It’s the closest I’ve ever come to feeling […]

What it Means to “Go Wild”

“Go Wild” was the theme for my last sacred travel adventure to Scotland. It was pure inspiration, nothing planned. It just felt right. I thought it would be about tapping into our own individual nature and allowing it room to flourish. For me, it was not that at all. “Go wild” meant far more than […]

You Might Be a Sacred Travel Junkie If…

I admit it. I am a Gypsy at heart. I have a full fledged case of wanderlust. Palmists have told me it’s in my palm. It’s in my astrological chart. It’s just what I was born to do. You’ll get no apologies from me. That said, there is a line where too much of a […]

There and Back Again. Now What?

Every sacred journey ends with a return home. But once you have become the hero of your own story, how do you go back home? How do you have this amazing experience, this transformation that no one understands, and slide back into your old routine? We often get to that “now what” moment where going […]

What I Learned From Sacred Scotland

You know how you read something, see something, or hear something and think you know it. Then you live it, and now you know it in your bones? The “Go Wild” tour in Scotland did that for me. I can’t say I had any huge “ah ha” moments. It was like things mellowed and deepened. […]

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

Lots of people are afraid of the dark. For some, I mean this literally. For others I mean that they identify their fears and then respond to it as if it were wicked, evil, dangerous, or some other word meaning “bad.” Then they put a lot of energy into avoiding it. Hey, guys. Don’t be […]

Will You Refuse the Call to Adventure?

In every life there are many calls to adventure. When you accept, you may have fun. You may get beat down a bit, but you always grow. If you do enough of these, you become the hero of your own story. If you refuse enough of these, they stop coming. Think about this before you […]
