Hello! I’m pleased you’ve stopped by. I’m Cheryl, and I help people create lives they love, get through tough times with grace, and to fall in love with themselves. I can help you connect with your inner goddess – your divine feminine self who helps you nurture, take pleasure, create beauty, and transform yourself – and the world. I combine life coaching, interior design, space clearing, and more, to provide services, inspired ideas, and how-to’s for you and your delicious life. Look here for more and to learn about my services.
There’s been a lot of ranting and raving around here lately about right and wrong. There probably always has been, but it seems to have come to a head lately, especially since the US election. I can assure you that I’ve done my share! But the pointlessness of this approach has struck me lately.
There’s so much certainty that some are right and others are wrong (not to mention ignorant, mean, racist, elitist, out of their freaking minds, etc.) and, of course, who is right and who is wrong all depends on which group you identify with. With all of the focus on various issues, I think we’re missing the point.
What is the point? I’ll leave you to decide that for yourself! But since I’m writing this I’ll tell you that my belief is that it’s bigger than immigration law and healthcare policy and the budget. I think it’s about how we see and treat each other. Standing back there seems to be a whole lot of dislike (spilling right over into hatred), contempt, and a sense of not understanding each other at all, and frankly not even wanting to – who wants to understand someone they despise? They are obviously wrong, and we’re right.
It makes me think of Martha Beck’s teaching “you spot it, you got it”, one of her most humbling lessons! It certainly opens your eyes. If you are truly disturbed by the appearance of annoying elitist assholes then you need to take a look at your own life and see where that is your approach. If you are honest you’ll be certain to see it. If you are appalled by the amazing ignorance of the “other side” – where are you ignorant? This is a remarkable (and often upsetting) lesson – that what you see you also contain. Of course it works for the “good” stuff too. Where you see love – yep, you’ve got that!!
My sense is that all of this angst and judgment is about allowing fear to be our choice. It certainly isn’t about love. In A Course in Miracles I learned that I get to choose each time between love and fear, and that ultimately, all other confusing issues aside, this is the only choice.
Here’s to love!

What the heck IS an Intrepid Goddess?
My business name comes from a delight in goddesses – the luscious feminine aspect of the Divine. And oddly, it’s also about a love of travel, a life spent moving. Goddesses are naturally intrepid: undaunted and bold! Travel, moving, and change require a intrepid attitude. Daily life is full of change and transformation. So for me The Intrepid Goddess is a marriage of the Divine and everyday feminine courage. Faith takes courage. Love takes courage. Getting up in the morning can take a whole lot of intrepid courage! It’s about an attitude, an energy, a way of approaching our lives that balances Spirit and everyday, delicious living.
“This course was so fun – and also very powerful. Cheryl presents the process of making altars in a very fun and easy to understand manner. You will read this and have plenty of guidance and suggestions in creating a powerful altar that is special to you – and you also have the freedom and creativity to do it in your own way. There are plenty of tips and suggestions, but no absolutes or “you must do it this way, or…..” I have made altars in the past, but using this process was more fun and my altar feels more special and more powerful. It definitely added extra energy to my altar. And, it is presented in such a way so it is easy to repeat again and again when you have something new to work on. I am excited to do more, and will probably repeat this every month or so! This is a course that you can use over and over and gain something more from it each time.”
“From the initial intake form, through to our last session, Cheryl continued to gently move me forward on my path, with inspired intelligence and tools that moved me from my thinking self to my believing self. What do I mean by that? When we began working together, I had a 22 hour a week desk job, active urban gardening clients, and was just starting a new, geographically flexible business. By the end of our 6 sessions, I had created an entirely unexpected stream of income…” Morganne
