New Year’s is Just Around the Corner

New Year’s is Just Around the Corner

RAISING CLARITY are funny, aren’t we? This is hardly the jaunty champagne glass associated with the New Year. Yet to us this image is intoxicating. Fall is intoxicating with its bareness, like a blank slate. I am sure this is why we appreciated the fire so much: it cleared everything away. If you had the chance to […]

Dreaming Together in the Temple of the Divine Feminine

Dreaming Together in the Temple of the Divine Feminine

Outside the dreamtime, it’s not every day I am blessed to work in a place this heavenly: Just looking at it fills me with peace, too. There is a place and a purpose for this luxury: peace, rest, re-sourcing. These are waters I return to in my mind anytime, and in person on special occasions. […]

Sleeping White People and Our Big Feet: Post #13 in Our Series, What One (White) Person Can Do

As you know, I’ve been trying to wake up to my own whiteness. And I’ve been looking for a way to help other whites wake up. Here is a very simple metaphor I came up with: White people walk around asleep. Our feet are huge and heavy. We trample what is in our path. We don’t even […]

RAISING CLARITY Is A Shelter

RAISING CLARITY Is A Shelter

Most of what I write means in at least two ways. Our title today is no exception: you raising your own clarity is a shelter to you. And we at RAISING CLARITY are a shelter–for you and others. Searching for our blog post images is always such a delicate dance of inspiration. I wait until I find one […]

How to Hold a Council of Selves

  Holding a council of selves is something I do a million times a day and forgot to tell you about in this blog.* You who’ve worked directly with me know about this, and some of you have figured it out on your own or from other authors. When to use a council of selves Any time […]

Ripped Apart by Fire

Ripped Apart by Fire

When I look at myself inside, I am in fragments. There is a Whole of me, so I am not worried. And I am more and more in touch with that Whole which looks very little like me–more like an outline of a person and then Space. Luminous aware emptiness. I have become very drawn […]

Giving Til It Feels Good

Giving Til It Feels Good

We talk a lot about emptying out in this blog–the importance of becoming empty before you ask and then receive. This is because if you don’t have what you want, something is in the way.  (It’s not that you can’t have what you want.) My personal favorite way of emptying out is giving. One of […]

Money in Community: An Invitation and a Statement of Abundance from RAISING CLARITY

Money in Community: An Invitation and a Statement of Abundance from RAISING CLARITY

We are very excited to keynote the Communities Conference’s “Monday Program–Money in Community” this Labor Day Monday. We feel like the intentional communities’ movement gets us. And we get them. This is because one of the ways we have figured out to redefine abundance is through community rather than competition–which allows you to work smarter, not harder. […]

Spirals of Self-Forgiveness

I am reading Joy Unspeakable: Contemplative Practices of the Black Church by Barbara A. Holmes, a pastor, attorney, and President of United Theological Seminary. Some of the voices in her first chapter are new to me,  such as Juergen Moltmann’s passionate love for the Shekhinah, G-d’s personal, mothering presence (pages 24 and 28). Some voices are long-beloved, such as Howard […]

No, You Can’t Have My Mind, I’m Using It: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Your Mind

No, You Can’t Have My Mind, I’m Using It: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Your Mind

  My subtitle is a nod to the magic being worked in many people’s lives by Marie Kondo’s book. This post, however, is occasioned by my realizing I needed to tell more than one beloved recently they could not have my mind because I was using it. I realize that people pay me for my […]
