to the Holy Mothers
Illuminate for us
what we do not see
Resonate through us
what we do not hear
Reveal to us the sweetness
that we do not taste
Raise up within us
the places we have gone dead
Remind us of who we are
when we have lost the path
Nurture the empty bowl
within us that is hungry
Turn toward us
in the places we have turned away
what we have not learned
in the ways of wisdom
Teach us forgiveness
when we can’t find it for ourselves
Weave for us
that which we have unravelled

ONLINE COURSES, CLASSES & OFFERINGS
We have just completed an amazing retreat last weekend, in which I got to be with my mom, Caron McCloud, and other members of the community I’ve been leading with.
It was so exciting because many members of the Red Madonna Team have never been in person before.
It was amazing to be in community, weaving different faith traditions and to find common threads and nurture common ground upon which we stand.
We enjoyed an experience of painting, of prayer, of ritual and sisterhood.
Here is my Tree of Life ‘work in progress’ painting that we did during the retreat. We offered a livestream option to do this painting process along with us, and you can register to receive the class videos here.
I’m very excited to be going on a 2 week adventure with my husband Jonathan as we travel into unknown territory, visiting places we’ve never been!
Emails from me over the next couple of weeks will be much lighter. However, I am sending this letter to you today because there are amazing offerings coming up that I want to share with you.
Sending blessings to you and yours for the Holidays, however you celebrate.
Signed in red thread,
Our Red Madonna Teachers & Staff this weekend. It’s rare for us all to be in Circle together and I’m so grateful to have these amazing women in my life.
