Are you looking for
meaning, moxie, magic & majesty in midlife?
The Midlife Midwife™
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 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.

in the fullest potential

we will harness our purpose,

This is the legacy of Her majesty.

Letters In Response to the last Issue:
Love this blog, Donna! I have had a vision, for a very long time. A vision where women make up the majority of our government, from local to the Presidency. A vision where compassion thrives. I believe that since women make up more than half of the population of this country, we can take over and do the right things. Your blog give me hope it will be more than a vision. It will take work, but I think it will come true in my lifetime.
- Nancy, CO
Lovely news Mama Donna ... it made me smile. When enough of us have had enough of this shit ... it will change ... loved the images you posted with the story: spitting flames and raising fists. Raaar!

Please send your good news, achievements, accomplishments, successes and celebrations so that our international circle of sovereign sisters can send you blessings and accolades.
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!

I teach creative movement to women 'of a certain age' as they say - all Queens of course - and all of us regal. Through creative movement and music they come to learn self acceptance and self love. We dance to celebrate ourselves and our bodies regardless of age, shape or especially regardless of the way society would like us to be. I give them permission to move their bodies the way they want to move, to twist and turn, bend and reach - and I tell them to shimmy those hips and flash that smile. I've been teaching for forty five years - I'm sixty seven. My focus is on well being and I have borrowed your words many times to share a thought.
