Look below for The Queen of My Self book giveaway offer.*
For more than five years I have been traveling with The Queen of My Self through nineteen states and three countries, meeting and talking with several thousand women and crowning hundreds of Queens.
Everywhere I went, I met fascinating, marvelous, women of a certain age. Every venue where I spoke was run by capable and engaging women in midlife. Every antique mall that I browsed through was staffed with middle-aged women. Every diner and family restaurant, too. The women who attended my workshops were incredible in their openness and readiness to embrace change. And every single one of them had a story to tell about how she is growing into her personal sovereignty and becoming the Queen of Her Self.
The sad part of these travels was meeting and then leaving so many fabulous women who I would have liked to get to know better and to associate with on a regular basis. Ironically, this was the best part, too. Each time that I left a place, I knew that it was in good hands, that I had one less place that I had to worry about. I knew that the Queens who live there would be taking care of business. This makes me feel so much safer in the world. We are everywhere and we are absolutely amazing.
Somewhere, on some highway, I had the idea to create a cyber Queen’s Court. A virtual place where all the Queens can gather and share inspiration and encouragement with each other. Where we can find information and news to spur us on in our growing power. Where we can keep our intimate connection alive. With each workshop, this dream grew and expanded.
The Queen’s Chronicles, my monthly Ezine that picks up where the book left off, was the beginning of what is now a wide-spread vibrant community of mature women who are the Queens of our own domains. The Queen of My Self Page on FB and this Beliefnet blog are also chapters of The Queen’s Court. And new plans are underway for even more ways that we will be able to connect in the near future.
This Cyber Court of Kickass Queens is a virtual gathering of sovereign women of a certain age — our dear peers — who graciously offer guidance, inspiration and encouragement to each other.
We Queens know what we know. And we know a great deal. Our experience has made us wise. So, feel free to consult with our cyber-counsel when you are in need of sage advice or wish to explore a particular topic of interest.
We don’t accomplish anything in this world alone…and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something.
