The big test for spiritual people

By Lhamo | Sep 22, 2017 | 0 Comments

  It really is easy to appear spiritual on Facebook.    It’s even easier on Instagram.   A few beautiful photos, some great quotes, a strategic comment, a smattering of crystals, flowers or essential oils and voila! there’s your brand.   Don’t worry, I’m not judging. I’m doing it too.   The harder thing, if not the hardest thing to do, is to stay your spiritual self when you are around your family.   Especially, when your authentic voice happens to speak a language of beliefs, opinions or lifestyle choices that conflict or oppose your family values or culture.

How MotherLine Healing was created

By Lhamo | Aug 24, 2017 | 0 Comments

GIFTED TO ME BY MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER IN A DREAM A WEEK BEFORE MY REDHAIRED DAUGHTER WAS BORN, I was heavily, very heavily, pregnant, and it was a balmy Sunday afternoon in late November 2006. I was hot and also more than ready to birth. So I did the best labor prep I could do – I laid down to nap. She was beautiful and so completely real.

Tyranny of shiny. Dropping the masks in your women’s circle

By Lhamo | Aug 21, 2017 | 0 Comments

The music is on. You’ve smudged the room and reverently (if not slightly excitedly) your women have settled themselves in the room. You breathe in, you open your eyes and catch their expectant gazes. “Welcome” you say with reverent tones. Feeling your body soften and voice deepen, you are about to launch into your mystical opening of sacred space then BANG! That one late woman has just tripped on the cat at the front step and her glass water bottle has shattered all over the porch. Now due to an ensuing litany of f-bombs (she is one of your tribe after all)...

She in the Centre. How do you call in the Sacred in your women’s circle?

By Lhamo | Aug 21, 2017 | 0 Comments

I’m about to admit something that isn’t exactly PC when it comes to women’s circles, I fully own that it has a little to do with my shadow gremlin of cynicism and a lot to do with experiencing a multitude of things called sacred women’s business. But before I make my grand confession, I want to know, how do you call the sacred into your women’s circles? Which tradition do you follow? Do you open your circle space with a Wiccan protocol? Or are you following your teacher’s way, if so, what is his or her lineage of wisdom? Is it...
