To Our Darling Wild, Outrageous, Beautiful, Wise, Bad-Ass, Reverent and Irreverent Cowgirls

It has been a wild ride during 2015 at the Cosmic Cowgirls Rodeo of the Soul. We began and ended our year with what Cowgirls do best – lead legendary lives!

One woman remembered, for the first time in decades, that her body is a source of pleasure. Another told me that her husband got tears in his eyes when she said she wanted to focus on her body during sex. It’s moved me to hear how needed and appreciated this...

The Taboo of Depression

The Taboo of Depression by Michelle Ida Fairchild I procrastinated writing this article. I avoided choosing a topic. Little random post-it-notes are pasted in my journal with various taboo topic ideas such as greed, religion, and drugs. Ah maybe things would get interesting, I thought, if I tried to write about all three at once! I chortle a little. Yet, when it came time to sit my butt down and begin typing something (deadline...
