I raised two daughters as a single mom and now have four grandchildren ranging in age from 7 through 17. I am in a clinical psychology graduate program, about one year and a dissertation away from my internship; then graduation with a PsyD. I facilitate the Living Wicca discussion group here in Springfield, MO. I have served as priestess for three different covens since the late 1980s (back when I was not a student). I also used to spend a lot of time working with a national group called Guardians of the Fourth Face (“Guardians” for short) providing safety and security for some of the larger and several of the smaller Pagan gatherings in the central and eastern areas of the US.
I will be completing my Masters degree soon and will be able to rejoin the world. I hope to eventually be part of a professional clinic providing a holistic approach to mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. I also hope to be instrumental in providing wellness services at prices that are affrdable to most people - don't know how it will be done, but that's the dream.
When I read for fun, authors are: the Gears - the Clan books; Jean Auel. The Dune series; The Habdmaid's Tale, Atwood; and The Birth of Venus, Dunant are also on the list.
Beliefs / Practices
Jung (psychoanalisist of Fraudian times), and psychology in general play a strong part in my beliefs and practices.
Caves and geology, out of doors - hiking, and reading just for the pure pleasure
Ghandi, Martin Luther King

"When love awakens in your life, in the night of your heart, it is like the dawn breaking within you. Where before there was anonymity, now there is intimacy; where before there was fear, now there is courage; where before in your life there was awkwardness, now there is a rhythm of grace and gracefulness; where before you used to be jagged, now you are elegant and in rhythm with your self. When love awakens in your life, it is like a rebirth, a new beginning. "
— John O'Donohue (Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom)
