Standing on the Steps then and now

Posted on December 19, 2016 at 4:43pm 2 Comments

                Almost four years ago, I walked up the Capitol steps in freezing rain to join other clergy and officiants to perform the first legally sanctioned same-sex weddings in Washington State.  Those of us who could legally perform a ceremony were invited to donate our services to any who chose to get married under, near, or around the Christmas tree in the…


What shoes to wear now?

Posted on December 19, 2016 at 4:33pm 0 Comments

Say that you are going to a party, or going to the mall, or to visit your old aunt who is failing.   Say that you are going to a new place, somewhere you have never been before and you don’t know what to wear.  You put on the usual dress, the one you’ve worn so many times, perhaps it is beginning to fray a little, but never mind.  What shoes will you wear this time?

You look at all the shoes you have collected over the past ten years.  You know, the black work high heels, the…


The Passionate Feminine

Posted on May 4, 2016 at 2:41pm 0 Comments



For over thirty-six years, we have gathered to celebrate the Passover, a re-telling of the Hebrew peoples’ crossing the desert into the Promised Land of milk and honey.  We read the Haggadah, we drink the wine, pass the matzo, flick the plagues off our fingers like an Italian curse gesture.  We sing Dayenu, the song that voices the wonder of any small act to be sufficient for knowing God’s abundant love and grace to us, the people who follow the law.  The…


Will you catch me when I fall? : Living the Symbolic Life

Posted on December 22, 2015 at 8:19am 2 Comments

     “Will you catch me when I fall?”  Those are the words of a refrain from a Danish song by the group Danser med Drenge (Dancing with Boys).  The image helped me recall the old trust games used in group-building back in the day.  Someone stood in the center of a group, crossed their arms across their chests…

I was not able to tune in when the last Dream webinar was aired. When will  it be archived and will I be able to access it? I was so anticipating listening to the last segment. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the other two sessions! I have been presenting some new dream classes locally. I, also, studied dreams at Pacifica Graduate Institute. I am honing my skills to then become a personal Dream Therapist.

Hello, Silvia--


I participated in a teleconference on The Red Book in February.  That is how I learned of the DPA. 




And you?

Ordained Christian though interfaith in practice after several years as an academic and sometime devotional Buddhist. As a spiritual director, I am open to all types and levels. Studied in Israel for several months, basically the place of geography in theology (not realizing I would revisit such thinking when I got involved in depth psychology). Still have cravings for lox and cream cheese on a bagel with capers!!! (Actualy, its time for me to go to lunch!!!)

Welcome Silvia,

I'm also a clergy-type person working with soul on different "fronts." I believe you will find others who share your interests and curiosities within the Alliance. Just out of my own curiosity, which faith tradition do you serve?
