If You Want to Go Far, Go Together

We feel and see it all around us. Women are rising to demand equal rights, equal say, and equal pay. Change is in the air and it is an exciting time. “What Is It to be A Powerful Woman Today” is a series of podcasts that explore what that change will look like and what […]

You’ve Had the Power All Along, My Dear

How do women rise within a power system created by men? How do we reclaim and express our authentic power within that system and what would it look like? This is the focus of my third podcast on What is it to be a Powerful Woman today? And it will likely not go as you think. […]

If You Only Stop Singing, I’ll Make You Safe

We know it’s time to recognize the ways that patriarchy tries to keep everyone in very narrow gender constructs that inhibit our wholeness. But just as you cannot heal a tree by simply tending to its branches, before we can address the costs of the patriarchal system, we need to take a look at its roots.

In my second podcast, If You Only Stop Singing, I’ll Make You Safe, (a title taken from a poem by David Whyte), we explore the back story of how women came to be excluded from the power structure in the first place.

When Sleeping Women Wake – Episode 1

What is it to be a Powerful Woman today? is a series of podcasts I’ve created to explore power in a very different way than we are used to defining it. Not as power-over, but as power-with, and ultimately as power-within. While my work has always centered on the question of women and power, the […]

Don’t Let Your Power Be Eclipsed

It’s been a whirlwind here at the SpiralUp© development hub. I spent the summer flying back and forth from London, presenting my course, Full Spectrum Leadership, to women from four different countries. It was incredibly fulfilling. And, by the end I needed to refill my cup! So it was wonderful to spend last weekend unwinding […]

The Power of Staying True to Yourself

Just Say No

Bonnie, the receptionist at my dentist’s office, asked if I’d like to attend the fundraiser for the local school. My “no” was met with a huge “Thank you!” She explained, “I hate it when people say, ‘Let me check my schedule,’ as if their calendar is their decision-maker. They already know the answer but are […]

Stop Making Yourself Small

So many of us still have deeply rooted habits, inherited over time that keep us from putting our full selves out there. The cultural message passed down to us tells us not to take too much attention, appear too assertive (read “bossy”) and at all costs be humble. But this is no time to be […]

YES, You can go on vacation–and actually not work

  Vacation is great in theory. In practice, many of us find ourselves doing work, thinking about work, or answering emails. That’s if we even manage to take time off. Last year, 41 percent of Americans didn’t even take a day for themselves, according to travel site Skift. Approximately 429 million vacation days go unused […]

The Co-Creative Power of Action – Be True to Your Soul’s Intent

In order to create a glorious alivelihood we need to become skillful in the domain of inspired actions. When you act from what inspires you, what feels “right” moment to moment, you self-ACTualize.

Access Your True Power

“What I found from coaching women for over two decades is that the motivation that takes us to a certain level of success eventually runs out. That motivation to prove ourselves, to prove that we can play with the big boys has an expiration date. It’s not that we stop wanting to make stuff happen […]

Are You Harboring an Inner Terrorist?

A life threatening disease completely changed the direction I had planned for my life.  The metaphor of Lupus where your body attacks itself forced me to realize I had an inner terrorist that constantly criticized and judged me for not “measuring up.” Even though I experienced extreme physical pain throughout the 14 years of the […]

The Secret to Living Beyond Your Inherited Story

How Would Life Get Better If You Put Just One Soul Desire First?

The sun is a good metaphor for we humans. It continually creates energy for us by essentially destroying itself day after day, millennium after millennium without complaint. We are imbued with that same generous impulse to give – the destruction part is optional. “All life, all of nature, all earthly systems, are based on closed […]

Exercising real freedom by how we choose to think

At this “celebrating freedom” time of year it’s worth considering, what is real freedom to you? Freedom is often thought of as license to do whatever you want when you want, a much sought-after circumstance and huge driver in our quest for financial independence. But we can be independently wealthy and still be imprisoned by […]

How do I become more self-possessed and confident?

A question from a client (“Sarah”): Wendy, How can I learn to come from a place of confidence & strength rather than unconsciously looking for others to fill my needs and expecting them to make me feel like I belong?  I want to know how to come from a loving place rather than the one […]

Finding 20 Seconds of Insane Courage Can Change Everything

We women aren’t usually called to start a new job, a business or a project because it’s a good business model or financial opportunity. We do it because we have passion for something and want to bring it to life in ways that reward us and make the world a better place. Our passion gives […]

Find the Joy! “Call In” an Extraordinary Life

Find the Joy! “Call in” an Extraordinary Life Has the idea that our thoughts create our reality finally reached mainstream? People certainly seem to be taking to the idea that focusing on what they want can affect their lives. Everywhere I look I hear about the surging popularity of “life lists.” Life lists, once the […]

Women On Top

As I flew to the East Coast to spend time with my nephew last week I was riveted by a series of three prescient articles in More Magazine.
