Hello Love, I am loving all of your emails that I received after last week’s Part 1 of How to Rise Like a Phoenix. The emails, the poetry, the heart-opening…
bhakti udrekad viraktasya ya drsi jayate matih
saa shakti- shaankaree nityam
taam tatah shivah
Be wildly devoted to someone, or something.
Cherish every perception.
At the same time, forget about control.
Allow the Beloved to be herself and to change.
Passion and compassion, holding and letting go-
This ache in your heart is holy.
Accept that as the rise of intimacy
With life’s secret ways.
Devotion is the divine streaming through you
From that place in you before time.
Love’s energy flows through your body,
Toward a body, and into eternity again.
Surrender to this current of devotion
And become one with the Body of Love.
~ The Radiance Sutras #98- Dr. Lorin Roche

I’ve been quiet over here on the home front for the past few weeks as I’ve been immersed in a form of devotion known as the Writing Womb. As I’ve ventured further and further into this womb of creation, I’ve been thinking of all of you and how thrilled I am to finally be revealing more of this work over the coming weeks and months.
Being in this space is always fascinating. Time seems to stand still. Ideas of how I thought things would look change. Whole ways to present what I want to teach morph into other mediums. Plans get scrapped even when almost done. New offerings are born out of thin air. What I think in one moment is a course all of a sudden I’m writing a book proposal for.
And getting an agent hook up.
And then wanting nothing to do with the project at all after spending 6 sleepless nights writing a 60 page book proposal. Then coming back for more after a hearty break.
So needless to say, my silence here has not been total silence. I just haven’t felt that anything I’ve written was ready to reveal to others- yet. So as I contemplated the hows and whats and whens of The Heroine’s Odyssey, one word kept streaming through:
Devotion to the craft. Devotion to the moment. Devotion to allowing and surrendering to however, whenever and whatever form this all wants to take.
When I think of the word Devotion, I think of it’s meaning of love, loyalty and enthusiasm. And I use those three words as my compass with anything and everything that I create, send or offer. If these three aren’t all present, then what I am doing is not in full devotion.
And so I wait. Or stop. Or change direction.
Which takes patience. And sometimes- oftentimes- Devotion in the form of being almost ready to throw it all away time and time again.
Devotion is also one of the 16 stages of The Heroine’s Odyssey- perhaps the most simple but also the most complex to understand.
To be truly Devoted, we must get out of our own way, listen to our own intuition and sometimes be willing to throw away the game plan and go with the current of what is happening in the here and now.
What are you currently Devoted to? Do you even know? Or is the answer so clear, you want to scream it from the rooftops?
For me, my Devotion is simple. So today- a simple promise to each of you- and an offering.
I vow to be in Devotion to The Heroine’s Odyssey.
I vow to be in Devotion to The Unbridled Life.
I vow to be in Devotion to each of you- my private clients, readers, friends, family & tribe.
I vow to be in Devotion to only writing here when I have something real to say. Something with meaning. Something that speaks truth and integrity with the intention of touching your hearts and lighting your souls on fire.
I vow to be in Devotion to being of service in whatever way I’m being called in the present moment.
And I vow to be in Devotion in teaching this in whatever way feels right at the right time.
One of those ways in which I wish to teach in this form of Devotion is to give those of you ready and willing to dive into The Heroine’s Odyssey a key to unlock the current and experience the odyssey yourself.
The Heroine’s Odyssey: The Session is a one-hour private experience with me where we:
* Map where your path has led you to on The Heroine’s Odyssey
* Determine which of the 16 stages you currently are in your life
* Craft a way for you to work with this stage through ritual, movement, mantra or other practices to truly be the heroine of your own story- no matter where you are today
* And have a little bit of fun along the way
Why is it important to know what stage you are in? Because knowledge is power, and by knowing where you are in your own journey, you then have the power to honor it, work with it, and decide on your next steps based on your own truth. With integrity & grace. And seeing that in surrendering to your own path, doorways open, choices become more clear and actions into how you will choose to venture forward on this ride come easier to grasp.
You will also be gifted an introductory guide to The Heroine’s Odyssey months before I reveal the details of this concept to the public. As well as a sneak peak into a few other surprises before anyone else.
Investment is only $108
I don’t know how many I will have available. I just know that I am ready to teach this to more women, and the way I most want to do that right now is through these sessions. I may stop at 10, or go to 30. And that’s just the thing: I trust that I’ll know. I trust that you’ll know. And I trust that we’ll make magic together.
If you are ready to become the heroine of your story, know exactly where in your journey you currently are and be in devotion to the present moment, please purchase your session below. Once your purchase is complete, you will be taken to a screen to book your session.
After payment, if you are not automatically redirected to the booking site or if you have any issues with this, please email email@example.com immediately so we can help!
