D.I.Y. (or with a friend)
Sign up and share this course with a friend; do it together. I encourage it.
We talk things out, process our thoughts, and find clarity in soul sister conversations with one another.
And there's much you'll want to talk about--real substance stuff. It's designed for that; full of resources and material to find your own answers--and ask questions you never thought of before.
There's a long-held spiritual element in partnership, honoring a divine presence, and our own, when we gather.
If you've taken yoga classes, you've heard Namaste as a greeting, with a slight bow and hands folded in prayer fashion, honoring the sacred in one another. If you attended Sunday school classes or church services, you heard similar acknowledgements. Where two or three are gathered, I am In your midst. Friendship holds divine energy.
Freedom is soul fuel of every woman I know. It's important you feel that freedom and welcome here, too.
You are encouraged, inspired, safe, here. Welcome.
Imagine sitting with an old soul wise woman, someone you can talk to about anything--including deeper, sorting-out-thoughts-about-life stuff; to be heard and encouraged, to be you, without anyone trying to change or judge you. That's what you have in this course, and who I am for you; who others have been for me.
These lessons are pieces of life wisdom that will lighten your way. ... promise.
I know because I've lived it.
It was a college paper that took me to places outside my religion's comfort zone. An assignment changed my life, my spiritual openness, and led me to create this Seeker's Toolkit... It was powerful and freeing--and worked!
I still use those tools whenever something takes me to new, uncertain places--to feel safe, find solid ground, gain clarity, and find my way. ... worthy of passing on...
a feminine-spiritual orientation
I was born a girl... and
a farm girl; Catholic, parochial-school taught; and drawn to spiritual that included more awareness.
ROOTS run deep. Religions we grow up in influence how we see our world; it's a starting place.
Then, we start to question things we've been taught, because our brain and eyes see differently.
stretching at the edges ...
caterpillars to butterflies... everyday goddesses awakening...
Growing up Catholic comes with an independent streak, thinking for ourselves, owning a right to make personal, spiritual, life decisions--especially in areas that affect our bodies, especially as women; and in matters of moral justice and fairness. The right thing to do and freedom are instinctive.
It also includes a colorful Catholic Imagination: Heaven, hell, purgatory, limbo; angels and saints, archangels, principalities and powers, Mother Mary, the Magdalene, and mystics; the Mass and sacraments, and the smell of incense. Those, too, are elements of an everyday goddess.
We memorized and absorbed a culture that influenced us. It's a reference point, regardless of where we are or who we are now.
As the service began, I became acutely aware that every hymn and biblical passage used only masculine pronouns, as if that was all there was. Until then I had accepted that when it said men and brotherhood, that somehow meant me, too. But now, in a place much deeper than my head, I didn't feel included at all.
Sue Monk Kidd
It's not a big deal... Until it IS...
First we try to ignore it;
then we try to work around it--defecting in place is how one author said it.
We can't unknow what we know, though. We try rationalizing it, working around it, and then a last straw tips the scales.
Mine was 1996, on the feast of the Epiphany (also feast of the Holy Family), a final last-straw moment of knowing... I had to go;
Something roared underneath, barely able to keep silent... frustrated, appalled, saddened, hurt, betrayed;
and whether ignorance or arrogance of the institution, it no longer aligned with my soul's need of inclusion, equality, and social justice. As an institution, it's words supported domestic violence against women.
(Your last-straw thing may be different. Whatever it is, it will be a line-in-the-sand issue for you, though.)
Everyday goddess spiritual initiation.
A seed grows and breaks ground; an egg hatches and shells break open; Life intends our expanding, growing, and wings ...
We come equipped to do this.
I awakened to a need of feminine voices, women leaders; women-spiritual experiences, words, rituals, wisdom ceremonies, and songs, of girls' and women's soul and spirit, sacred life experiences, transitions... and found them. ... a spiritual initiation as an everyday goddess.
When you need to find spirituality on your own terms, this course is a lifeline. So am I.
Anne Wondra, WonderSpirit Soul Sistering
It's different... in a good way.
This course is what's worthy of passing on. ...
One has to follow where Spirit leads.
I met Anne at a time in my life when I was experiencing what I've learned to call a 'spiritual awakening.' This may sound like a whole lot of fun, but to me, it was downright scary!
Anne was able to continually calm my fears, and guide me on my personal journey in a personalized, loving dedicated way that I would not have thought possible. She didn't guide me based upon some regurgitated spiritual coaching process or workbook. She guided me through true Spirit with incredible compassion, intuition, and a pure and gentle knowing that to this day makes me feel safe and protected enough to continue my spiritual exploration and expansion. To me, Anne is simply -- "The Wondra."— Heather Blessington, Anne Wondra Feminine Spiritual Coaching Student 2016
