You are invited to step onto the sacred stage of your life for more energy, more expressiveness, more playfulness, more creativity, and a clearer understanding of the beauty of your life.
On my 75th birthday friends carried me away to a dream. The dream consisted of days spent in Istanbul, seeing once again Hagia Sophia, that very early Christian declaration in monumental stone of the miracle that is Holy Wisdom; the Blue Mosque (hearing the Call to Prayer with newly attuned ears on the first day […]
This summer’s Institute in Social Artistry, led by Jean Houston, included the metaphor of alchemy, and that included an awakening to the world’s earliest scientists, the alchemists.

The tenderest possible care was provided Rajita in her final weeks by […]

Dorothy (Chickee) Atalla’s Conversations with the Goddess, is available this week. Her “Encounter at Petra, Place of Power” with the feminine force is striking, challenging, exciting, and informative. This is a way of connecting to energies that can help change and heal us and our world.
The book is going out into the world via the wonders of the internet, among other travels. I will post interviews as they are scheduled and if you wish, you can listen to the live broadcasts or listen later to the archived interviews. A Closer Look with Pam Atherton — To Be and How to […]
