I explored places I had dreamed of for years, took a leap of faith, a rolling duffel and a back pack and headed across the US by train, plane and automobile. With no solid plan, magic unfolded at every turn….
I celebrated with friends and family over the holidays and stopped in Santa Fe for a private workshop in encaustic mono printing with Paula Roland (http://www.paularoland.com) and created a rice paper scroll. It became the foundation for creative play along the way and a seed for a children’s book!
One of the shamanic highlights was meeting Auntie Margaret (left) in Sydney and learning how the aboriginal people lived and dreamed the magic and power of the land.

SACRED CEREMONY: My Experience With SHEMATRIX
Since 1996 Shematrix has created sacred space with hundreds of women and men worldwide. Shematrix is a collective of women and men based in Australia, NZ and the USA with members throughout those countries and also in Europe and Canada. These women and men come together through their love and devotion to a body of work that is based on rites of initiation and known as The Gift – A Woman’s Rite to Herself and The Grail – A Hero’s Quest to the Self. I am so blessed to have been a part of this work! http://shematrix.com
