and ceremonial guidance for women
who want to enjoy the fruits of an enriching,
influential, purposeful, passionate, and powerful maturity.
The transition from Maiden
and Mother to Queen can be a difficult one, fraught
with hard lessons and lots of loss. It takes great determination
and courage to confront and embrace the changes brought
about by the midlife passage.
It can be of immense value
during this daunting time to have the inspiration, advice
and encouragement of a counselor/coach/mentor —
someone who has been there and done that and is ready
to assist you to do the same. It would be my honor to
help you make this journey.
During our time together
we will develop practical and ceremonial strategies
that will empower you to:
your preconceived notions and old patterns
your deepest-held dreams, desires, and ideals
your goals so that you can fulfill your potential
the roadmap of your life’s path
your resistance and impasse
your passion for life and living
in your own beauty and strength
the sovereignty of your own life
With intention, focus, and an experienced
guide, this intense process can become an exhilarating
adventure that leads you from confusion to actualization,
from crisis to resolution, from doubt to resolve, from
fear to fortitude, from lack of self-esteem to evolved,
life-affirming spirited strength and self-determination.
YOUR MIDLIFE CRISIS INTO YOUR CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT!
Sessions are personalized and geared to the unique
individual needs of each client. I create a warm,
compassionate, light-hearted, and supportive environment
to enable your journey of self-discovery.
My unique approach is based
on my extensive knowledge of ancient spiritual wisdom
and shamanic healing practices from cultures around
the world including intuitive counseling, old wives’
wisdom, breathing techniques, Reiki, multicultural
mythology, archetype and symbol, tarot, astronomy,
These modalities address
the wellness of body, mind, and spirit as a totality.
They also remind us that body, mind, and spirit are
connected, and that each person is also connected
to the community of humankind, to all living things,
and to the Earth Herself.
When you retune your alignment
to the universal cycles of nature as well as the internal
seasons of your life, you are connected to the cosmic
power of all possibility.

YOU CAN EXPECT FROM THE QUEEN'S COUNSEL
Ever since I first introduced
The Queen as a helpful archetype for midlife
women, I have received hundreds of requests
for detailed instructions on how to become a
"Dear Mama Donna,"
women would write, "I want to be a Queen,
too. How do I access my power? How can I feel
good about myself? How do I change my life?
How do I find magic and spiritual wisdom? How
do I know what to do? How do I learn how to
The reality is that I cannot
possibly know how anyone else will attain her
Queendom, I only know how I came into mine,
and that is largely through hindsight. The truth,
my truth, at least, is that there is no one
true truth. We must each find our own way in
As a shaman, I teach through
example, but not through dictum. I can and do
offer information, exposure, personal experience,
encouragement, inspiration, suggestions and
support to my constituents, but I cannot - dare
not - pass judgment or establish rules and laws.
It is simply not for me to say.
When you come to me for
help and spiritual guidance, I listen to your
concerns and embrace your needs. I pat you on
the back, give you a good, swift kick in the
butt, or let you cry on my shoulder, as needed.
I can tell you what I did in such and such situation,
how I did it, what I learned from this or that
lesson, but I cannot tell you what you should
do. How do I know what your soul needs?
Only you know what you know.
I can, of course, aid you in reaching into the
well of your own deepest wisdom, and help you
to hear the messages from your best inner Selves.
And I can offer tools and practices to help
you develop the confidence to follow your own
purpose, path, passion and power.
A woman who I have been
working with recently told me that I had changed
her life. "Well, no, of course, I didn't,
honey," I assured her. "You changed
your own life." The fact of the matter
remains that I could not give her what was not
