Features & Interviews

  8  Birthing Crone: The Provocative Art of Helen Redman Ann Kreilkamp
For half century, Helen Redman has been making art that tracks events, both
momentous and ordinary, in the human life cycle. Her work is a visual memoir of the flux and flow of embodiment and identity.

 22  Awestruck by Beauty: The Life & Art of Bobbie Gill Maggie Fenton
The wild arrangement of flowers, berries, greenery and twigs in front of the speaker’s podium kept drawing my eye. When I asked who had done it the answer was “Bobbi Gill.” Some said she was a spiritual director; others, that she was an artist; one intriguingly described her as a “gatherer of women.”

 36  Lady Olivia: In Service to the Divine Feminine Aya Rose
In 1976, Lady Olivia (together with her brother and sister-in-law) co-founded The International Fellowship of Isis, a non-hierarchal fellowship that now includes over 30,000 members in over 125 countries. Now an ageless 93, Lady Olivia is still a force to be reckoned with.
