Dr. F. Emelia Sam

We may not be able to accurately qualify it with words but that doesn't matter. What is important is that we remain open vessels, receptive to its infinite supply. Even more important, we must share the abundance that resides within.

Creativity and the Ordinary

Consider housekeeping your launchpad to happiness. Clearing away what no longer sparks joy (thanks, Marie Kondo), creating space for what you envision, and anticipating beauty -- that's what opens you up to the heavens. Let the good rush in and through you, and then ship your art.

I had an amazing conversation recently with my friend and colleague, Michele Norris about the momentum and hype around Lean In communities within large corporate organizations and the book itself. She get's full credit for the slogan, "Don't Lean In, Lead Out."

It's an exciting time to be a woman. A time to share freely our gifts with those we love and the world at large, a time to delight and radiate our natural beauty, a time to love with the fullness of our hearts while staying deeply connected to the core of who-we-really-are.

Rhoda Jordan | Posted 09.16.2014 | Women
Rhoda Jordan

We've short-changed our boys and men by defining masculinity in such a way as to constrict the complex essence of their humanity. Criticizing masculinity doesn't mean pitting males against females. Masculinity is not exclusive to men. We all carry its qualities.

Becky Cavender

Confidence is one of the sexiest things in a woman, many men say; but it's deeper than confidence. What men are really picking up on when they see a woman with that gleam in her eyes, that sultry smile on her face, is the self-awareness of sensuality.

Tough Girls Finish Last -- Find Out How to Finish First!

Heather Strang | Posted 06.21.2014 | Women
Heather Strang

I valued being independent but hated the thought that my options were to either let my relationship define me (from my grandmother's generation) or be so tough I only attracted a man who followed me around like a lost puppy (the wounded feminine from my mother's generation).

Please, Stop Calling Me Goddess!

Erin Donley | Posted 04.27.2014 | Women

Goddess is considered a term of endearment, meant to celebrate the woman. This made my negative twinges seem both unfair and bitchy.

If My God Had a Gender

Mirabai Starr | Posted 03.18.2014 | Religion
Mirabai Starr

I have always been drawn to a God who eluded me. A God who transcends gender -- transcends everything, actually. A God who rebels against all forms, annihilates conceptual constructs, blows my mind. In other words, a God I can't believe in.
