Here are some sample quotations:
“The knowledge of the heart is in no book and is not to be found in the mouth of any teacher, but grows out of you like the green seed from the dark earth.”
– CG Jung

Why Wild Cards?
We women are Wild Cards in the world, bringing our values and vision to remake the world at this time of great urgency, and great possibility. The world has been too long without feminine wisdom and power in leadership at every level of society. This is the time for us to come forward into our families and communities, local and global with the wisdom, power, passion and creativity which are at our core. This is the time to transform the world by expressing the heart of what matters to us.
Why the Leatherback?
I use the Leatherback as a central image for several reasons. She is a deep diver, a strong long distance swimmer, an abundant creator, a master navigator, who does not recognize limits.
In many world myths, the sacred turtle is the creator and sustainer of worlds, carrying us on her back with her millions of years of memory, mystery, wisdom. Turtle is also sacred to the Aphrodite, Greek goddess of love and beauty. The leatherback connects us all through her contact with many peoples and cultures.
In myth, in our collective dreams, she is a Keeper of Doorways between the spiritual and material realms of being. We learn to pay particular attention to the thresholds, boundaries, and borders in our lives. She stands for these qualities, the Wild Feminine, in each of us. She is a wayfinder, a pathfinder. We each must learn to navigate the oceans of our feelings and creativity, and to come to solid ground when it is time to take action and deliver our gifts.
As pilgrims, as pioneers on our own unique journey, we learn to attune to the language of our souls. We can learn to be skillful travelers in both spiritual and material worlds. We can create a new world.”
