Are you looking
for meaning,
moxie, magic
and majesty
in midlife?


The transition from Maiden and Mother to Queen can be a difficult one, fraught with hard lessons and lots of loss. It takes great determination and courage to confront and embrace the changes brought about by the midlife passage.

It can be really helpful during this confusing time to have the inspiration, advice and encouragement of a counselor/coach/mentor - someone who has been there and done that and is ready to help you do the same.

Queen Mama Donna offers upbeat, practical and ceremonial guidance for individual women and groups who want to enjoy the fruits of an enriching, influential, purposeful, passionate, and powerful maturity.







Ever since I first introduced The Queen as a helpful archetype for midlife women, I have received hundreds of requests for detailed instructions on how to become a Queen.

"Dear Mama Donna," women would write, "I want to be a Queen, too. How do I access my power? How can I feel good about myself? How do I change my life? How do I find magic and spiritual wisdom? How do I know what to do? How do I learn how to rule?"

The reality is that I cannot possibly know how anyone else will attain her Queendom, I only know how I came into mine, and that is largely through hindsight. The truth, my truth, at least, is that there is no one true truth. We must each find our own way in this world.

As a shaman, I teach through example, but not through dictum. I can and do offer information, exposure, personal experience, encouragement, inspiration, suggestions and support to my constituents, but I cannot - dare not - pass judgment or establish rules and laws. It is simply not for me to say.

When you come to me for help and spiritual guidance, I listen to your concerns and embrace your needs. I pat you on the back, give you a good, swift kick in the butt, or let you cry on my shoulder, as needed. I can tell you what I did in such and such situation, how I did it, what I learned from this or that lesson, but I cannot tell you what you should do. How do I know what your soul needs?

Only you know what you know. I can, of course, aid you in reaching into the well of your own deepest wisdom, and help you to hear the messages from your best inner Selves. And I can offer tools and practices to help you develop the confidence to follow your own purpose, path, passion and power.

A woman who I have been working with recently told me that I had changed her life. "Well, no, of course, I didn't, honey," I assured her. "You changed your own life." The fact of the matter remains that I could not give her what was not already hers.

I can't thank you enough for holding my hand and guiding me across the big divide between my old confused and depressed self to the Queen of my own life who I have become.

- Denise, OR


 Thanks for the encouragement. I will continue the uphill climb.

- Sandra Tyler, IN


 Thanks for your ongoing, unending support. I am so happy! I worked so hard on self-reflection this year spending a lot of time by myself. Getting involved in canoe paddling, trying to move forward. Life is so challenging. I can't believe this is where I am after all I went through. Finally! Thanks!

- Carol, NY

 I really thought I was going crazy until you soothed my fears and helped me climb out of the abyss. And now, for the first time in a very long tome, I am able see myself as the bright, competent women who I really am. I can't thank you enough.

- Josephine, SD

Words cannot express my admiration and appreciation of you. You are a brilliant counselor, coach and yes, midwife! Thank you for all your help. I have crossed the great waters into middle age and you have been my steady, dependable rudder. Thank you again and again.

- Charmaine, Quebec, Canada

I made it! Thank you for your faith and guidance in planning my Queening Ceremony. I so appreciated your email encouragements and especially the Yoruba saying, "You crown your own head."
