New Dream Foundation—Inspiring Your Dreams


A New Mission and a New Focus in This Season of Rebirth!

Now that you have a picture of the New Dream family and our original intention from our last article, let’s take a look at what New Dream is inspired to become.

As we celebrate this season and Easter holiday of death and re-birth, and the lesson we can learn from Jesus about complete surrender to one’s Divine calling—I want you to know about the re-birth taking place within me and here at New Dream.

Last October, I was nearly knocked off my feet with a spiritual pull into silence and meditation that I simply had to honor. So, I set aside three days with the Mother Bowl of the Women’s Water Ceremonies and traveled through the spirit of the water into the sacred primordial womb of life.

I sought clarity for direction in my own life and for the direction of New Dream. At the end of three days, I was feeling spiritually squeaky clean and very clear.

Since the direction of New Dream is tied in some part to my own purpose, I would first like to share the clarity I received about my service. Through various means, I am here to invite us into the powerful realm of the Sacred Feminine. I believe that when the Sacred Feminine is regarded with the same devotion as we have honored the Sacred Masculine we will finally know peace.

Whether we are connecting to our Sacred Feminine essence (men and women) by:

Discovering and applying our intuitive wisdom;
Learning to rely on Divine guidance for our healing and the healing of others;
Developing an ability to create life through the energies of holding and allowing;
Expanding our capacity for self and universal compassion;
Recognizing our spiritual gifts as equal to our physical aptitudes;
Discovering the joy of the questions as well as the answers;
Honoring our true spiritual purposes for existence along with our survival needs; or
Experiencing the power of community living and supporting each other in a sacred way;

The Sacred Feminine is longing to emerge through us. The balance is needed in order for us to progress as a species. And the time is now.

During my retreat, the four Grandmothers on the other side of the veil that guide me and many of us in the Sacred Path of Feminine, explained the importance of honoring the Feminine in this way:

“In order for families to find true peace and harmony, the Sacred Feminine must be recognized and honored. When this happens children will learn to honor their own Sacred Masculine and Feminine energies in balance. Only then, will families emerge from their dysfunctional patterns and find happiness.”

I brought my clarity to the board of Trustees in November and I suggested then that if my vision and purpose was no longer in alignment with the direction of New Dream, I would step down as Spiritual Advisor and open my board position to someone that better aligned with the Foundation.

The board did not ask me to step down, but rather were delighted to hear their own beliefs and desires expressed through the guidance I had received. We agreed to focus our mission statement to include emphasis on the Sacred Feminine.

After weeks of input and debate from some of our key volunteers, we are delighted to have a new mission statement that more closely conveys the inspiration New Dream wishes to share with our community. Soon, you will see this new mission statement on our website:

Uniting Global Spiritual Family Through the Sacred Feminine.

The key volunteers at New Dream and I are very clear that it is in the honoring and uniting of the Sacred Feminine and Masculine that true peace emerges. We also realize that the quieter voice on the planet today is that of the Sacred Feminine. As we get to know her better within us, and discover greater spiritual equanimity within, we will experience more of it in our external experiences as well.

Perhaps you will read this letter today and say, “Oh my, this is not my organization any more.” If that is the case, we bless you in love to find spiritual community that is home for you.

On the other hand, if you read this letter and say, “Yes. This is what I believe!” We invite you to settle in and make yourself more at home. When you read something, or listen to our radio programs, or attend a ceremony or meditation—let us know what inspires your soul, as together we open to the infinite possibilities of the Sacred Feminine.
