    30 Day SOA Challenge – 2

    Editor’s Note: This 30 Day Challenge will run in weekly segments with 5 days per segment. Each subsequent segment will be linked to the previous one. Click here for Days 1-5. THE SOA 30 DAY CHALLENGE Days 6-10 By Robin Corak Day 6: Scry! (At least try!) The act of scrying is intimidating for many people. Unless it is something you have learned or it is something that comes naturally to you, the pressure to see something in a bowl of water or a crystal can be overwhelming and frustrating. I think much of this pressure is due to the preconceived notions we have about scrying as well as the…

    30 Day SOA Challenge – 1

    Editor’s Note: This 30 Day Challenge will run in weekly segments with 5 days per segment. Each subsequent segment will be linked to the previous one. THE SOA 30 DAY CHALLENGE Introduction and Days 1-5 By Robin Corak  Once upon a time, many many years ago, I joined the Sisterhood of Avalon. This, my friends, was before the days of Sisterspace and The Isle. While I didn’t have to walk ten miles in the snow each way to get to school, I did have to deal with the rudimentary dreaded technological beast known as Yahoo Groups. This was also before Jhenah’s book Avalon Within came out. I was initially overwhelmed…

    Inner Child; Inner Queen (part 2)

    Meditation Journey for Healing your Inner Child by Lori Feldmann Sit in a calm, relaxing space. Take nine deep breaths, and let go of the cares and worries of the day. Continue this cycle of breathing until you have come into a relaxed and peaceful state. Find yourself in your childhood home.

When you have made the home as real as possible, find yourself knowing with your entire being that your younger self – the…

    Inner Child; Inner Queen (part 1)

    by Lori Feldmann I recently had a friend remark to me that “you sure do use the word Sovereignty a lot”. I laughed, because she was right. But I’m unapologetic for my overuse of the word, and I think it lies at the core of what we are trying to do on this personal path of growth that we are following in the Sisterhood. All of us, as women in this world, have varying degrees of a lifetime of being told what to do, how to act, what to want. And we are all trying to undo the pain of that – so what more of an ultimate goal are…

    What is Body Sovereignty?

    By Sydney Bell I describe my work as supporting women in reclaiming Body Sovereignty.   You could simply say that I work with people to help them develop a ‘better body image’ and you wouldn’t be wrong, that is definitely part of it.  But over the years I’ve gravitated to the term ‘Body Sovereignty’ because I feel it speaks more to the depth and breadth of this work and the radical nature of resisting cultural pressure to engage in body loathing.  Instead ‘Body Sovereignty’ speaks to a peaceful and positive relationship with your body. The theme of  ‘sovereignty’ provides an opportunity to pause and look a little deeper… We start…
