There is a goddess within every woman. What goddess are you? The ancient myths come to life in the Goddess Course taught by Kathryn Costa. You’ll recognize qualities of these feminine archetypes in yourself and the women in your life and you’ll be inspired to call upon their strengths within you to best serve your aspirations and your relationships.
It’s your time to flourish! Kathryn Costa takes you on a magical experience that begins when you receive a beautiful envelope in the mail. Tucked inside you’ll find little surprises to use during the online retreat that includes a second envelope with a pep talk for those moments long after the retreat when you feel like giving up on your dreams.

Looking back on one’s life we can see moments that stand out as turning points – a marriage, a milestone birthday, a trip, an unexpected diagnosis, the loss of a loved one – each event shifting our perspective of life as we know it. Each turning point is like a polished pearl added to the string of our life’s journey. Yesterday, I added another pearl to my string when I attended a despacho ceremony hosted by Ray Crist and Nina Henrikson of the Jaguar Path and led by the legendary Don Sebastian Pauccar Flores, a Paco shaman from Peru. My experience with the ceremony began long before I had arrived. I spent my morning taking care of some chores, folding laundry, washing dishes, and straightening up my studio. After my meditation, I emptied my mind onto a notebook with a to do list for the next week. These activities helped me to clear my home and my mind so I could arrive free from any distractions. As I shuffled a deck of oracle cards, I …

When Arteza asked me what products I would be interested in trying out for a product review, I was curious to compare their colored pencils with the woodless colored pencils. I look for four things in colored pencils: color selection, vibrancy, blendability, and price. Watch this video to see how these two products pass the “Kathryn Costa test.”
Twenty-four participants of the Inspired Vision Retreat were invited to contribute a piece to this group mandala project. Each person was given a piece and assigned a color. They printed the piece, filled it with color and form and incorporated their word-for-the-year into their design. The Seed of Life is an elemental form in sacred geometry created by drawing seven circles of the same size. I love this design and how the overlapping circles create new shapes that look like flower petals. These containers are the perfect place for writing words and adding symbols, doodles, and color. What makes the Seed of Life an elemental form? If you continue to draw circles, you’ll get the Flower of Life or the Torus Yantra depending on where you continue drawing the circles. What better mandala to use to seed our intentions for the year? What word will inspire you as you navigate the opportunities and challenges that are showing up for you? For participants in the workshop we played with words until we found the one that spoke to each of …
