I am a retired lawyer and college instructor now involved in community development on Denman Island, British Columbia. I identify as a cultural feminist; I am concerned with achieving equality for women in the creative and spiritual realms of our society, where some of our natural ways continue to be repressed, oppressed or unrecognized. I believe that feminine creative and spiritual processes are different from masculine constructs, and that feminine processes need to be explored as they point the way through to a healthier, more whole world. I taught law courses in a Criminology Program at Douglas College. There I developed the first course at our college on environmental law and I pioneered curriculum and practise in restorative justice as a new criminal justice paradigm, which involves circle work and holistic healing, and values interconnectedness, intuition and and the feeling level.
I am fortunate to now live in a community that supports creative and spiritual women and my desire is to help facilitate and bring their work and exploration of the feminine energy spectrum to broader audiences. My retirement enterprise is called Quaternity Platform . The word quaternity is a Jungian term and involves integrating the fourth dimension, which is often seen as the shadow or the feminine aspect. We produce art shows in the community that focus primarily on the Western Mystery traditions that have the feminine alive in them and that were discarded or repressed as dark or occult. These traditions are part of our rich Western heritage.
