About the Matrix

Our Matrix governs us by consensus of a quorum of 6 or more women who are committed to a term of 1 to 3 years.  We believe each woman holds a piece of the truth, and we are guided by our by-laws.  All women interested in this process are welcome to attend Matrix meetings and join in the discussions. The Matrix meets on the 2nd Monday of each month (except July, Aug & Dec when there are no meetings), from 7:00 to 9:00 pm during the winter months, 7:30-9:30pm during the warmer months.

You are invited to a book launch party for my newest book, Sekhmet— Transformation in the Belly of the Goddess, Friday June 23, 6.30pm at Tsunami Books in Eugene, Oregon.

This is Sekhmet’s time! Whenever the world is out of balance, as is currently obvious, Sekhmet, the Egyptian lioness goddess that is the archetype of both warrior and healer, is called upon to show up and help bring harmony, justice, truth and cosmic law back into the world. The ambitious purpose of this book is to take people through a literal and fully conscious transformation in the belly of this powerful goddess. It is an opportunity for each person who commits to the process to receive healing at all levels, and once they have been reduced to their essence, to consciously participate in their regeneration and reconstruction. All who respond to Her call will come out the other side with a new level of strength, health, courage and the fierce compassion required to get us through this turbulent and chaotic time, and will have gained many new tools with which to meet the challenges that are facing us as individuals, in our communities, and for our planet. The presentation will include an initiation to meet Sekhmet.

I am looking forward to seeing everybody this Friday. Wine and snacks will be provided. Brandelyn Rose from Blue Lotus will be singing. It will be a party! Please join us and tell anyone you know in the Eugene area.
