MIDLIFE METAMORPHOSIS WORKSHOP
July 28-30, 2006
It comes much earlier than menopause, and it happens to men as well as women. It can start as early as age 36 and last until 45. It is intense, painful, bewildering. Some call it midlife crisis, but I like to think of it as the Midlife Metamorphosis, because of its unique potential for breathtaking transformations of spirit. If you are in this phase of your life, this workshop is for you! Informed by insights from astrology, literature and your own experiences, and prepared with exercises that open your senses and heighten your awareness, you'll embark on a vision quest in search of the power within you.
To register for this event, call the conference center at 413-238-4240 by July 15.

ONE-WOMAN PSYCHIC FAIR
Celtic Corners Art Gallery
196 Cabot St., Beverly, MA
Yep, I'll be the one woman, offering 15- and 30-minute mini-readings for an afternoon or an evening, using a mixture of astrology and Tarot. I am excited about the opportunity to offer my local community a taste of the wisdom of the stars and the magic of the cards! I did hope to be able to announce the date for this event, but, alas, it's still in the planning stages. In the meantime, go visit the gallery and check out the beautiful and evocative things Elaine Barry has collected in her hip downtown art space!
NATURE'S MODEL FOR THE CREATIVE PROCESS
Summer is a-comin' in at last... not a moment too soon for those of you who haven't been enjoying this cool, rainy Spring... quite soon enough for folks like me who don't care for hot and muggy weather. However, there's always ice cream to look forward to... and swimming in the ocean...
Astrologically speaking, we here in the Northern Hemisphere are at the height of the growth season, heralded by the entrance of the Sun into the Zodiac's most fertile sign, Cancer, on June 21. The subtle softening... relaxing... opening... that began invisibly at Winter Solstice and picked up momentum with the slow return of the light, the melting of the snow, the softening of the ground, the sprouting of leaves and flowers, has reached full, ripe culmination now.
What does this tell us about the process of creation as modelled for us by Nature?
All this is a far cry from the high drama of the creative life as depicted in our cultural myths: the single lightning strike of inspiration, the agonizing struggle to express oneself, the lone starving artist in the attic. "An artist must suffer."
Is this true? Must an artist suffer? Does the seed suffer during its long cold incubation period, down in the dark? Or is this merely another, natural, essential part of the cycle? Perhaps we would suffer less during our own creative incubation periods if we knew that the softening of Spring necessarily returns, year after year, followed inexorably by the opening of Summer.
