Since I found you, you have birthed within me new ideas, wonderful emotions (mostly happiness) and awe. I am not only in mid-life but my only child is graduating from HS and I have lost my business. I still don't know what the next chapter will be and most of the time I am afraid. You have been the calm in my storm so often and I love you for that.

Are you looking for
meaning, moxie, magic & majesty in midlife?
The Midlife Midwife™
The transition from Maiden and Mother to Queen and Empress 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 really helpful during this confusing 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 help you do the same.
Queen Mama Donna offers upbeat, practical and ceremonial guidance for individual women and groups who want to enjoy the fruits of an enriching, influential, purposeful, passionate, and powerful maturity.

Difficult times have helped me
to understand better than before,
how infinitely rich and beautiful life is
in every way, and that so many things
that one goes worrying about are of
no importance whatsoever.

"Mama Donna Henes, urban shaman, has years of experience in shining the light of truth on hidden agendas and staying positive. She shares ways we can pay attention to and respond ethically and empathetically to what we see, from the normalization of trash talk to physical grabbing. We can live our values and lead exemplary lives, keeping hope and faith and trust alive. We can stay connected with our hearts, engage with the deepest truths about men and women in our culture...and make a difference!"
Maryanne Comaroto, Maryanne Live Radio
It is my hope that as more and more women rise to reign
in the fullest potential
of our supremacy,
we will harness our purpose,
passion, and power
and direct it toward
creating a more balanced
and peaceful world.
This is the legacy of Her majesty.

Donna, I love your story about your BFF of 50 years. I have a BFF for about 30 years. Her health is not good, and now she never gets out. I phone her once a month and we laugh through our memories. Just about every time we drove any place together we got lost. We also did some heavy-duty shopping Bright blessings to all us queens!

Loved your last Queens Chronicles. Connections are important.
Though I have lost 2 old friends in the last 3 months, it's comforting to know that our last emails were upbeat, funny and full of mutual admiration and love.
- Alfie, NY
Only you can make me cry with a smile on my face in the middle of a Wednesday afternoon. Just read the lovely tribute to our forever relationship and the beautiful picture you included. I was so shocked and surprised that I could hardly contain myself.Thank you for including me in such a lovely way in celebration of friendship. With love,
- Laurie, OH
I was flipping through a children's book in my classroom this morning and found an illustration of two best friends. It reminded me so much of the early years of my friendship with Vanessa, who's been my BFF since the 5th grade. I texted the pic, and she sent one back. Just taking a moment to express gratitude for having a bunch of close long-term friends in my life

And we are glad to so. It is a joy and a privilege to share in the fortune of another woman. I recently heard Oprah say the saddest thing ever - "The hardest thing about being successful is having someone to be glad for you."
It takes a centered and confident Queen to break that pattern. There are 60 million thrones out there. One for each of us. There is plenty of purpose, passion and power for us all. May we use it well!
