Vote for Radiant Love

By Evalena Rose, M.A.

Radiant love is everywhere. Even with hate-mongering happening on a national stage, radiant love continues. The vituperative language tossed about in this election can make us angry, shut down or turn away in disgust. Adding our judgment and reactivity, though, gives our power over to unworthy outcomes. We could be empowering visions of what we want instead. It’s counter-intuitive and irrational, as change agent behavior often is, when seen from “normal” reality! Read more…

Opening to Sacred Relationship

Tantra for Women Who Love Women

Reclaiming Lost Sexuality

by Evalena Rose, M.A.

Reclaiming the Matriarch

by Evalena Rose, M.A.

Finally we are coming to honor and appreciate the Crone, the font of wisdom a woman becomes after a life well lived and lessons well learned. I believe, though, we are missing an important stage of life in our accepted paradigm: the stage of Matriarch. That gives us four stages: Maiden, Matron, Matriarch, and Crone. Read more…
