My Soul Call


When the Soul wants to experience something,
she throws an image before her
and steps into her own experience.
Meister Eckhard


Many people go to Ireland looking for their roots. I didn’t. I just went on vacation with my dad to see a new country and enjoy some quality father/daughter time. It was all of that. And it changed my life.

For many years my life was filled with our graphic design agency, providing strategic consulting to nonprofit and government organizations, and even teaching at a local college. Environmental sustainability, arts and culture, public parks and public transportation, ending homelessness, and social justice was the focus of all my work. I loved it and was quite settled in it. However my soul wanted a different experience, something she made quite clear during my first visit to Ireland. The ancestors were insistent and persistent, my spiritual teachers were gracious and patient, and the image emerged – the image that is now my life. The call of soul. Sacred communion with the land and landscapes. Sacred communion with ancestral and other world energies.

Now, through my books and writings, sacred journeys and sacred gatherings, it is my honor and privilege to offer sacred encounters for others. To heed the call of soul. To step into sacred communion.

I live in a forest sanctuary nestled near the coastal waters of Washington State, I also spend much of the year at our cottage in west Ireland.

When recently in Ireland I had the opportunity to walk along the River Bóinne with Anthony Murphy. It was a time of deep philosophical sharing. Here is the link.

  1. Janet. Happy accident indeed. I just took a quick look at your blog and look forward to more time. Delighted you found me. In the quick read of your writing it does seem there is much resonance. Glad for all this finding….I sense there is more ahead. Beannacht.

    • Hey Becky. Thanks for asking. The book will be available directly from me after I get home from Ireland. I fly home on October 15th. I will be creating a link through PayPal on this site. Might take a day or two to set up. Thanks for your patience on this. I haven’t generally let people know the book is printed…however the word is getting out. So getting the distribution/shipping set up is a top priority when I return. Again…thanks for asking! And you can always email me any time to ask. If you are following my blog you will get a notification…as I will do a blog post.

  2. Do you have any post lock down plans to travel to Ireland? Originally from LA, I’ve been living out in the wild west of Mayo since 1994. I am very grateful to be in our countryside oasis especially during the increasingly strange and challenging times. Ireland definitely called to us and we never looked back!

    • Hey. I am planning to come over in August. Fingers crossed. Will be there for six weeks. I have a cottage outside of Gort and have loads of work to be done there. And yes. Ireland does call us…back and back.

      • Gort was the first town we stayed in after we arrived in Ireland. A bender at the back of our friend Nick’s house. Most of the people I knew well then have moved. Anyway, look forward to reading the book. Thanks for reply.
