Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. 
It took me years to understand that this, too, was a gift.

The Holy Days and holidays are upon us and I am aware that this is not an easy, joyous, or jolly time for many of us. The outer materi...

In first grade at Saint Joseph’s School, at age six, I learned about shame and I learned about Blessed Mother Mary. I climbed into Her lap with the Hail Mary prayer and decided that She was my Real Mother.

that my beloved home for the last three years at Twin Lakes was going on the market in early spring and I would...

When I was a sophomore in high school at St. Catherine Academy, taught by Sisters of Saint Joseph, I was still very devoted to Blessed Mother Mary. In March of 1964, I went with the nuns and some of the other girls on a bus to the cathedral in Worcester, Massachusetts,...

Kundalini is Shakti, supreme energy,

whom the sages of India worship as the Mother of the Universe.

Shakti is the consort of Shiva.
