"We love this landmark book that celebrates a new mythic model for the middle years of a woman's life - the masterful Queen who has assumed the fullness of her physical, mental, emotional and spiritual powers. Suddenly, growing older doesn't sound so awful. It's the time when women can choose to claim their power, discover who they really are, and blossom with all they have to offer. Whee haw!"

bio portrait  


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.

The Mighty Queen  

Crow Flag

Hail Queens!



The mighty Queen, the great and wise, brave and compassionate woman ruler, the reigning commander of Her domain, is an expansive, expressive, accessible, energetic archetype who represents a mature female power, authority, responsibility and influence worthy of our emulation.


There have always been exceptional Queens, royal and otherwise - inspiring and motivating examples of midlife monarchs, matriarchs, amazons, fabulous furies, sheroes and prominent leaders from all cultures and walks of life - to serve as role models for us who are striving to mold ourselves in Her image of sovereignty and strength.    


My command stands firm like the mountains

and the sun disk shines and spreads rays  
over the titulary of my august person,  

and my falcon riseshigh above  

the kingly banner unto all eternity.

    - Hatshepsut,

Egyptian Queen/Pharaoh,1503-1482 BC


Among the Hopi people, women are not considered to be completely grown up adults until they have reached their mid-fifties at least. Women who are not yet fifty are not considered mature enough to participate in the weightier matters of ceremony. Despite how accomplished they might be, how responsible, how many children they do or don't have, their wisdom is not yet thought to be completely developed. They are considered to be still too involved in the practical matters of life and living, too distracted and preoccupied to be in attunement with Spirit - and thus their power.


The indigenous peoples of Mexico believed that a person "did not have a face" until she became an elder. It was only through accumulated years of living and the experience that age offers, as well as her willingness to accept responsibility for the welfare of her community that she could gain face.


Many cultures believe that a menopausal woman retains inside her body the blood that she used to shed each month. This blood that she preserves for herself is the fire-red source of her potency. The French have a fabulous saying "When women lose their blood, they gain their voice." Of course some of us have always been big mouths.


The Matriarch Queen is not afraid to speak Her truth. She has kept Her power a hidden secret, held fast just below the surface, the lid screwed on tight to prevent an accidental boil-over. Now, She burns with the passion and the power of a dormant volcano finally let loose of the intolerable internal pressure borne for so long. The fires of Her impatience have burned away all the underbrush and now She can see the forest for the trees.


Knowing through Her personal experience what is true and valuable, and having learned, usually the hard way, to be proactive, She pledges Her royal Self to defend and promote all that is precious. Fired by righteous indignation at the wrongs of the world, the Amazon Queen takes on the responsibility of Her authority with fervor and command.


We are not interested   

in the possibilities of defeat.  

- Victoria,  

English Queen. 1819-1901


As we women, Queens, move to assume ever-more powerful positions in the world at large, it behooves us to give careful thought to how we define power. Is power the control wielded by force from an outside source over a person or situation through violence, domination, and repression? Or is power an enabling energy that is generated from within and radiates outward? The Empress emphasizes the careful distinction between aggressive power over, and ennobling power from within - the difference between bully power and authentic power.


Personally, I do not think that it is a coincidence that just as the planet teeters on the very brink of destruction, there comes along a generation of fiery, accomplished, clever, ambitious women at the height of our supremacy to fix what's broken. And the sheer enormity of our numbers means that we can actually achieve

the critical mass necessary to make a real and lasting difference.    



Let us harness our impressive Empress Energy: our purity of purpose, our passion, our heartfelt compassion, and our enormous power, and let us direct it toward creating a safe, sublime, and peaceful world for us all.

The future is in our very capable hands.


With blessings of purpose, passion and power,

Nobody gives you power.  You just take it. 

~Roseanne Barr

Still I Rise 


You may write me down in history

With your bitter, twisted lies,

You may trod me in the very dirt

But still, like dust, I'll rise.


Does my sassiness upset you?

Why are you beset with gloom?

'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells

Pumping in my living room.


Just like moons and like suns,

With the certainty of tides,

Just like hopes springing high,

Still I'll rise.


Did you want to see me broken?

Bowed head and lowered eyes?

Shoulders falling down like teardrops,

Weakened by my soulful cries?


Does my haughtiness offend you?

Don't you take it awful hard

'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines

Diggin' in my own backyard.


You may shoot me with your words,

You may cut me with your eyes,

You may kill me with your hatefulness,

But still, like air, I'll rise.


Does my sexiness upset you?

Does it come as a surprise

That I dance like I've got diamonds

At the meeting of my thighs?


Out of the huts of history's shame

I rise

Up from a past that's rooted in pain

I rise

I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,

Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.


Leaving behind nights of terror and fear

I rise

Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear

I rise

Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,

I am the dream and the hope of the slave.

I rise

I rise

I rise.


 - Maya Angelou  


Compassionate Wrath  

Celebrating the Primordial Feminine:

Transforming Anger into Compassionate Wrath


By Mari Selby

As 21st century women we will continue to be easily seduced, and then just as easily dismayed, by the media's "perfect woman" as long as we buy into the outdated feminine ideal of motherly nurturance and essential passivity. And even if we don't buy into this limited ideal, our search for a "media correct" woman often leaves us dissatisfied with our army of personal trainers, therapists, and beauty consultants.  


What's missing? Perhaps a more evolved and holistic view of the feminine includes a wrathful aspect to our nature. Anger (or rage) is not wrath; wrath is focused, compassionate, creative and intelligent anger. Perhaps the next step in a personal and global evolution will guide women to become more primordial, wrathful and unreasonable, yet still compassionate?


Recently a young mother asked for advice.  

What, she wanted to know, was she to do with a 7-year-old who was obstreperous, outspoken, and inconveniently willful? "Keep her," I replied....  

The suffragettes refused to be polite in demanding  

what they wanted or grateful for getting  

what they deserved. Works for me.

- Anna Quindlen   


What might wrathful creativity produce? Years ago a friend sent me an image of a group of unreasonable women from Pt. Reyes, California. They were protesting US aggression in the Middle East by forming the word PEACE with their naked bodies. The "spirit" in the display was powerful and definitely sent a message. Their intention was to "shame" the government into rational thinking about the Middle East crisis. Today we have the Russian women's band "Pussy Riot" to show us the way of wrathful protest.  


Where do we source this wisdom of compassionate wrath? Today more and more women are turning to other world religions besides Christianity in their search for a deeper, more primordial and wrathful connection to feminine spirit. There has been a recent upsurge in the popularity of Kali, the Hindu goddess whose compassionate nature is both destructive and creative. In the Southwest women are drawn to the Hopi and Navajo Kachinas as a way of embracing another version of themselves.  


The arrival of Tantric Buddhism in the West has introduced us to the (secret and formerly hidden) ancient female deities called Dakinis. The burgeoning popularity of Dakinis is rooted in their compassionate and wrathful nature. The unique compassion of the Dakinis is their focus on the embodiment of sanity through the integration of all emotions, not just peaceful or looking-good emotions.


So, still, what are we hungry for? Are we searching for outlets for our rage? Has our rage become so strong that we can ignore it no longer? As women we've learned that the personal is political. How can we not be more angry than ever? We still see women being beaten and raped by their husbands, still assaulted and threatened by religionists, and still not being paid enough to feed their children.  



We have also learned that we cannot be just angry, and then expect to be truly productive. As well, anger may not necessarily be the spiritual image we choose to mirror. How do we reconcile our rage with our desire to be spiritual? Many religions tell us to swallow our anger, or rise above it, or pray harder, or devote ourselves more intensely to our children, husbands etc. These practices do not change anything deep within ourselves.


Can we transform this anger into creative energy? A film that deals with the transformation of anger into wrath is "Erin Brokavich." Erin's bitter frustration with her own single motherhood merged with deeply felt compassion to create wrathful action. Through witnessing acute humane suffering caused by corporate polluters, Erin transformed her anger into actions that profoundly benefited her community. Erin was unreasonable throughout her entire process. What are your current favorite films that portray the transformation of anger?


We can all create wrathful change. We can transform our lives. Where do we find the wisdom to know how to do this? Wrathful women are a force of nature, to be respected and venerated. Who were our personal models who embodied a wrathful spirit? Did our mothers stand up for us? Was there a neighbor who fostered our courage and talents? Which teacher allowed us to question authority? Each one of these people mirrored the Dakini inside us. To embrace our unreasonable and compassionate selves is to recognize ourselves as Dakinis. Dakinis by their very essence, represent a transform-ational journey.  


The Dakini principle is found in all ancient and modern cultures. Thousands of years ago, before being swallowed by Buddhism, Dakinis were allies in the daily passage of life. Millennia later they were further demoted to a kind of demon encountered during an individual's journey through the Bardo. (To Buddhists the Bardo is the place you go when you die, then travel through to the next level of spiritual evolution.)  


Dakini literally translated from Tibetan means sky-goer, one who moves through all dimensions. In our modern world, Dakinis represent the natural ever-changing flow of energy, from wrathful to peaceful, and back to wrathful again. The Dakinis may physically appear to us as a person, in our emotional patterns, or as animals. Dakinis are wisdom beings, as are we all.


Each Dakini represents a completed integrated range of emotion, for instance, from fear and rage to creative wrath and grace. The beauty of the Dakinis is the full range of emotion and the transformational journey within that range. When we see the creative spark in our rage and feel inspired, when we recognize the power in vulnerability, we truly know what transformation means.


The artist Jennet Inglis has painted a "life-sized" mandala of the primary 25 Dakinis based on the Simhamulkha (Lion faced Queen) Dakini practice. This mandala was painted life-sized using a dry pigment to demonstrate the power of vulnerability in the image. Jennet was inspired to create this treasure as a way to bring the Dakinis to the West and bring their practices out of the secrecy of Tantric Buddhism.


To some westerners, the idea of confronting our demons of fear, denial, anger, jealousy or greed is very threatening. However, to those of you magnetized by these Dakinis, they are perhaps already familiar allies. To those women, we say, go ahead, leap into your dance with the Dakinis!


Any unreasonable woman is a Dakini. All the therapy and spiritual practice in the world can still leave us caught in endless negative emotional spirals. Through the realization of Dakini wisdom, integrated with our emotional poisons, we are able to break out of patterns.

Dakinis offer women a mirror image of ourselves as untamed women. By embracing the energy of the Dakini we embody an elemental spirit that surrounds us in nature. By invoking the Dakinis we become a primordial goddess, an eternal image, and a compassionately unreasonable woman.


Unearthing the primordial feminine brings relief to the tensions of a positive outer image and an inner life in turmoil. We can be angry or fearful, and, at the same time, know that the transformation of those emotions is creativity and grace. When we have exposed the hidden poisons in our psyche, the Dakinis provide a path of soulful living and transformation. With rampant worldwide spiritual hunger, Dakinis offer the synthesis of our emotional, creative, and spiritual realities.

I am learning how to love myself. I was at Lynne Stewart's release party. She WAS amazing. How lovely that you two knew each other. I only met her once before she went into custody at a Brooklyn Friend's School FS African American party of all places. The Quakers had been all over her defense. She happened to have grandchildren in that school. Of course I made many phone calls and petitions on her behalf.

- Reynolds, NY


I am trying to learn how to love myself finally after all these years. Thank you for this reminder.

- Arlene, FL


I always find these newsletters to be right on target. The topics are always so synchronistic, it feels like you look into my heart and then send me appropriate inspiration! Loving myself is my constant goal, but it can be illusive. This issue put me back on track.

* I have reached the official age of Medicare this January. I asking for a recommendation for a primary care physician who accepts Medicare patients. I have been blessed with good health and have not really needed to choose such an individual. In being prepared for the possibility of needing one in the future, though, I am being pre-emptive. Of course I have asked my contacts, but unfortunately they don't seem thrilled with their own physicians. What's a Queen to do?  This Queen thinks that the other Queens who read and contribute to The Queen's Chronicles would have the information I need. I would appreciate any suggestions anyone would offer.
