Dear Emerging Women,
As long as I can remember I have wanted to be “psychic.” As a young girl I’d squeeze my eyes shut and beg for a sign, a flicker of communication from a higher power to help me navigate all the unknowns, a life raft of certainty when the waters got murky.
I still yearn for the comfort that comes from knowing that an All-Powerful Force has my back. The difference is that now I try to keep my eyes open – leaning into the world, looking for miracles, love taps and gentle whispers that show up as synchronicities, timely opportunities or the right person at the right time.

We know you love it when women get together to create community and share resources. We do, too, and that’s why we’ve partnered with WITI in support of their Women in Technology Summit, June 5-7, 2016 in San Jose, CA.
It was the dawn of a new chapter in the life of someone I love dearly, my oldest daughter Katherine. She was turning twelve years old and I knew deep within my being that I wanted to help ignite the next part of her journey as she transitioned from girl to young woman with beautiful lessons and ancient truths told from women around the world.
Echoing deep within me were the words of the African spiritual teacher Sobonfu Somé:
“A woman’s medicine is another woman.”
Since the beginning of time, we have symbolized various life passages for girls and boys with the markings of ceremony, celebration, ritual and community. I want these same gifts for Katherine in her own way. From the metaphoric Red Tent, to Quinceañeras and Sweet Sixteen parties, to spiritual and religious ceremonies, we all have our own native ways to honor various coming of age traditions. I wanted to recognize our traditions, yet I also wanted to sprinkle in something else…
I wanted Katherine to experience the broader context of her own becoming. I wanted her to see the next evolution of herself from trailblazing women role models who share their stories, their dreams and their invaluable lessons learned. I wanted to help inspire her own truth that is beginning to take shape within her.
