I was honored to be a guest on my friend Martha Hines’ “Living the One Light” interview series. We talked about many of my favorite topics, primarily “Connecting with the Divine through Writing;” also, creating “silence, stillness and solitude,” hearing a true inner voice, the power and magic of women’s writing circles, and how I lens and guide “Divine Ink ~ Illuminating the Heroine’s Journey.” If you’re inspired, I’d love for you to listen … thank you! Love, Janet
“Divine Ink ~ Illuminating The Heroine’s Journey” : Seven-Week Online Writing Group via email ~ self-paced with reflective feedback
Date ~ TBA: Cost: $695 (Deposit ~ $195)
“Divine Ink” guides and illuminates the heroine’s journey, a universal divine feminine path, essential to women’s writing and lives. This archetypal journey, distilled into seven distinct stages, is a spiritual path and literary model based on the call to adventure, transformation, and self-discovery.
During this seven-week journey, we will articulate and affirm our individual callings as well as the collective call of women today. Together, we will set out on the heroine’s journey, each week exploring one of the seven distinct and essential stages with inspiration, guided writing activities and prompts. Women will learn to discern an authentic voice from the internalized shadows of fear and doubt, clearing obstacles that may have previously held them back; find inner and outer resources to support them through the inevitable tests and challenges of life; and discover uncertainty to be a powerful place of unforeseen possibility. Here is where we discover the “boon,” lighting the way home.
At the end of the journey, women will come home to a new knowing of themselves, the awareness that the journey is ongoing, and the map and compass within them.

I discuss my new children’s book, Mermaid Dreams, with Lourdes Viado, Phd on her program,”Women in Depth”
“Mythology and storytelling are age-old methods of passing along wisdom, sharing experience, and explaining or teaching about life.”
Learning to trust your intuition, feelings, and dreams is a powerful experience.
With all the stories and lessons told to children today, our society does not seem to support the notion that women should learn to trust their intuition. This is a meaningful lesson for any woman, whether she’s a Maiden, Mother, or Crone. This is a lesson that is truly universal.
In this episode, I talk with Janet Lucy about her new children’s book Mermaid Dreams. This book encompasses many missing lessons from today’s children’s literature, while also depicting the connection between mother and daughter. Janet also shares how goddess mythology illuminates her ideas within the book.
Take a listen to learn Janet’s new book Mermaid Dreams and how this story passes along universal wisdom to women.

- How does the story in Mermaid Dreams depicts the connection between mother and daughter? (12:46)
- What coming-of-age concepts does Mermaid Dreams address? (14:15)
In This Episode, You Will Learn:

- How the power to change your dreams coincides with the power you have over your psyche. (15:03)
