Images speak to our hearts and our guts, and can free our psyches if we carefully choose which images we surround ourselves with. This is a crucial time of transformation and we must ingest and share what nourishes all of us and helps us grow. A powerful way to counteract dis-empowering images is to look at art of the Sacred Feminine, which encourages reverence for life and awe at the mystery of creation.

She has taught Womanspirit throughout the United States and abroad. In 2010, wanting to protect Mother Earth directly, she founded All One Ocean: Cleaning Up the Oceans, One Beach at a Time, which has established over fifty Beach Cleanup Stations in several states.
