Recently I was interviewed for the Twisting the Plot Podcast. You can listen to that interview hereTwisting the Plot: New Possibilities for Women over 50 is the brainchild of Dr.Cecilia Dintino and Hannah Murray, both psychotherapists with years of experience in many modalities including Drama Therapy, who noticed when they reached a certain age that there was no roadmap or, the ones that existed were less than appealing.

 “When we turned 50 we noticed that our futures lacked direction and purpose. We found ourselves asking what now and what next? And we were not alone. Lots of women were asking the same. So we rolled up our sleeves and did some research. We discovered this: the time is right and opportunities for women are open and possible. We just have to be innovative and support each other. So with our combined 50 years’ experience as therapists we started doing what we do best: gathering groups of women together to tell their stories and make change. Together we will twist our plot as individuals and as a collective culture.”

They created the Twisting the Plot platform which offers multiple ways of engaging this topic and a variety of resources for anyone interested: weekly podcasts, blogs, workshops and classes and an annual “Twelve in Twelve” course where Twelve women come together for Twelve months to focus on and support each other in manifesting a project or dream they wish to bring to fruition.

And there is and will be much more as they continue to gather and learn from everyone who participates. It’s very exciting and inspiring. Check it all out here:

Here’s the description of their podcast interview with me and the link to listen, once again, at the bottom.

Blessed be,

??? ???? ?? ??? ????????? ??????? ?? ??. ?? ????? ?? ?????? ??? ?? ?? ???? ?? ???????? ???? ??? ????? ??? ????? ????.⁣ – Theresa C. Dintino in Membranes of Hope⁣ ⁣

??????? ??????? has made several plot twists throughout her adult years. A ??????, she studied goddess culture and wrote books about matriarchal societies. Eventually, she was drawn to study her own ancestral lineage and wrote a book about her great-grandmother who was an Italian Strega. Her journey to connect with her Strega ancestry led her to an introduction to the West African Dagara tradition of stick divination. In a plot twist, Theresa pursued divination, a calling that has further deepened her connection to nature, elemental beings, and her ancestral past. ⁣ ⁣

As a ????? ???????, she listens, is advised by the elements, and prescribes rituals and actions to those seeking answers or healing. It is an intuitive ritual involving deep focus and play. ⁣

Theresa’s explorations next turned to life-systems and their membranes. In her latest book, ????????? ?? ????, she considers how everything, even the smallest of molecules is “ensouled” in a membrane. Everything that is a life source is protected by a membrane that lets in and keeps out, what it needs in order to thrive.

As therapists, we refer to these as boundaries. But we like the idea of membrane. It’s more dynamic and porous, less static.⁣ ⁣ Along with the eight books that she has written, she is also the co-founder of the ?????? ?????????? ?? ????? ????? ???????, and the founder of the ?????? ???? ??????????, an online store offering products for spiritual care needs. ⁣ ⁣ Take a listen to Theresa’s story.
