In the Red Crone’s Temple of Women’s Mysteries we deep dive into practices that open us to the inherent source of vast wisdom within. We connect with the bliss of devotion and with the Spirit in our hearts, utterly wild and free. We align with the dignity and grace of the feminine warrior, and we touch infinite compassion, silence and beauty beyond measure.
The basis for all spiritual exploration in our Women’s Temple group is the insight of that which we long for… is who we already are. Thus our practice is not towards a goal of attainment in the future, it is a process of melting, of unraveling the wisdom and beauty already inherent in each woman. And there is no more powerful place to do that then in a circle of conscious women.
We do it together. And together we evoke real awakening, transformation that lasts — Goddess spiritual practice becomes a life style. We all contribute in co-creating an aura of the Great Mother, which again provides each sister with a powerful transmission of grace and awakening. It holds us as we dive deeper into the essence and pure beauty of who we are.
In the Women’s Red Culture we talk, we eat, we dance, we pray, we melt with our innermost beauty and with each other, as we tap into authentic spiritual connection.
Instead of enforcing the status quo by focusing on our problems and personal shortcomings, this Women’s Temple group practices connect us with truth beyond our fears and limited self-images.
The Red Crone’s Temple of Women’s Mysteries is a space where we come to mirror, celebrate and empower each other. A space where we can drop our masks, and let the beauty of our authentic face be seen in all its glory, pain, passion and vulnerability.
In this training, you will learn the art of Womanist Leadership and all the how-to’s of facilitating an ongoing Women’s Temple group. You will gain insights into the background theory of women’s group dynamics as well as have the opportunity to practice Womanist Leadership and to receive constructive feedback.
The principles of Feminist Leadership can be applied to all areas of life; so even if you are not sure if you want to lead a group, this training will benefit you. You will have an in-depth experience of the ground breaking Wise Women approach and of the benefits of being part of a Women’s Temple group.
Topics we will cover include:
How to set and communicate the right intention for the group.
How to create a safe and deep framework for the group.
How to honor the flow of the group as well as keeping the focus and depth.
The being/doing dynamic of Feminist Leadership.
Pitfalls of Women’s groups.
In depth study and background theory of Women’s Mysteries and much, much more.
The learning process is a carefully balanced mix of theory and experiential transformation.
Many of the practices are dynamic and interactive (e.g dance, dyads, respectful touch), but we will also spend time in silence and inner contemplation.
You will leave the training with a plan for creating your own group, or if you already are part of one, you will bring back ideas of how you can deepen your practice together. It is even wonderful to come as a group, as the training will give you a common ground of understanding for what you will create together.
This training is for Women:
Feeling called to awaken and embody Feminist brilliance, for real.
Wanting to explore Feminist Leadership and learn the art of leading a Women’s Temple Group.
Who want to rejuvenate and have a deep dive into Feminist spiritual practices.

41 years ago six of us from the Women’s Center in L.A. realized that without our moral authority as women, without our own culture which must include spirituality, women cannot build a future for ourselves and our children.
On December 21st, we gathered in my apartment on Whitley Hill, just a few blocks from Hollywood Blvd, decided to hold the Yule celebration, as the first sabbath as Feminist Witches. We celebrated the Goddess of the Sun, known by many names: Lucina in Europe, Virgin of Guadalupe in the Americas, meaning she who brings light and enlightenment. This Women’s Movement is now Global.
Thank you for your years of support and encouragement to the Women’s Spirituality Movement, and for the future support for ourselves, our sisters and daughters. The GODDESS IS ALIVE and blessing us everyday, as we bless each other. Thank you for helping to keep the Goddess in the forefront of women’s issues. Thank you for helping to fund the events the Women’s Spirituality Forum hosts for women world-wide. Happy Birthday Susan B. Anthony Coven No.1!!!
Z Budapest celebrates the 2012 elections which brought women to the forefront of politics with 81 elected to the House and 20 to the Senate. Obama earned 55% of women’s votes making Feminist Politics up front and personal.
When Wise Vaginas go to vote they will change the country. I am watching the election developments, and every so often hear about some woman whining about this or that, and how they like the GOP and their lies.
Some vaginas are out of their bodies. Some vaginas hear only the siren song of the rich man, and imagine that the rich man cares about them. Its so comforting to believe that you are not abandoned by the party you have been so faithful to all these many years. May be even born into GOP-ness. Its what’s familiar and vaginas like this security.
Some vaginas may be don’t believe that vaginas should be free.
Older women who fought for vagina rights think let the young fight this one on their own. Other vaginas who have grown wise in their aging realize that once a vagina is governed by a group of aging hypocritical “religious” males, all vaginas are punished. And this is not what’s American. It is the Taliban reborn right here. Yes the faux Christian Taliban.
Vaginas are not a separate American population, its the CORE of the nation. It is where everybody else is coming from.
Romnesia is rampant. Republicans raped this country for a decade, then pretended that its Obamas fault.
Mitt speaks with positions of multiple choice. He would govern without protecting us, and you vaginas will be in peril, and there would be NO PRINCE coming to rescue you. Just saying. None of the Right Wing Republicans ever says don’t rape. None has made laws or protections for us. In fact, its harder to get help.
Wise vaginas don’t vote in the Tea Party candidates again. Vote out all seven wanna be senators. Vote in the wise vaginas.
Republicans lied to us about creating jobs,… What jobs? “Smaller government” is a lie! As soon as they were in power they rushed to beat up on the rights of vaginas.
Millions of legislations against vaginas. That’s what they came for to beat up on vaginas. They were the army against the freedom of women. This has been in the works since 1973.
What a mistake that was to allow them into power. Woman haters, woman rapists, incesters, and violence against vaginas. All endorsed by the Right Wingers. It is after all, the male God’s will that vaginas get knocked up by rapists.
I send a potent hex on all those who would mislead us, lie to us, and disrespect vaginas. We don’t need men to punish us for unwanted pregnancies. We don’t need government to mess with our vaginas. For every unwanted pregnancy there is a guy who is walking away whistling. No responsibility projected on males at all. Never comes up. It is the true gender loyalty of males. They allow each other to rape. Men band together wrapping themselves into the flag of a male god. It’s his will after all.
Wise vaginas have this last power the vote. No matter what your parents used to vote like, you go out now and vote Democratic. You are a very important target. There are 30 million more female registered voters today than men.
Vaginas unite… like the males united against you. Learn to practice loyalty to yourselves. Only gender solidarity can rescue us from the power hungry rapist Right Wingers.
Democratic vaginas get together! Now is the time we talked about “We remember in November.”

I confess I have been not writing. Not really. My profession is changing. What i thought was coming a long time, a writers dream to control ones intellectual property, its finally here. We have a Expresso bookstore now, where you can print your own book now while you are still in the bookstore. I have many books slipping between publishers, I am calling out to the universe for volunteer book designers, as a service to get my books into the new generation’s hands.
We moved in our new house and planted roses and apple trees and blueberries, and two grape plants. We still got white sage and blue sage to get in. The avocado tree made it through the winter as a baby, but froze the tips. She has recovered, and next winter we shall cover her up like we have seen other homeowners protect their cherished plants.
Faster then a speeding bullet, the year has gone into a trot and its midyear already. Freak out!
The biannual Goddess Festival (www-goddess-festival.com) is starting up in my house, we began drying the herbs and Cedar and Juniper, shedding in a big bag for the big rituals, when women get handfuls of it and toss into the fire celebrating themselves and their wish to the universe. Get your reservations now!
Goddess gets to Work!
We have quite a few registrations already, and more will be coming. In spite of the smaller monies women get, we still managed to make this pilgrimage, this journey to the redwood forest of the ancient giants.
I have a potted forest waiting as well. A rescued group of five redwood young trees; keeping them alive and well until September during the Goddess Festival when we plant them back into the forest.
I think its time we as women make a pledge; lets plant at least one tree every year. Five came first, its a pentagram. I see it as auspicious. Women and Trees!
My newest book is out now! Yay! Goddess gets to Work!Wise, whimsical, witty and when it’s called for, deviously wicked. America’s favorite witch stirs up an empowering brew for working women everywhere. https://www.createspace.com/3897522
If all goes well Bobbie can start making more videos with me. An interactive video showing how to contact and receive a spirit guide for ones Tarot readings. There will be a short little booklet as well… “13 Days to a Tarot Spirit Guide.”
I hope this will speed up the learning curve for many of my students who cannot find time nor patience to memorize the meanings of the cards.
Otherwise, I walk the walk. I laugh at least once a day for NO reason at all. Then I laugh also for reasons, but one cannot depend on them.
I am reading “Lizz Free or Die!” I went to hear her at the Santa Cruz Bookstore, she didn’t go into details, but it was she who has created “The Daily Show” with Jon Stuart. I loved following it in her book, how things just lit up in her talent and she just started performing this as a stand up comic. Later it gelled into the Daily Show. It takes a lot of fateful accidents to make a funny show be born.
I yearn to submerge in natural water, its summer after all. Ocean is ice cold, it has to be a pool. I am in it. Happy summer time!
