Turn Your Midlife Crisis Into your Crowning Achievement!

Read what participants of The Queen of My Self Workshops have to say!


The experience at your workshop touched a deep part in my mind, body, and spirit. The seeds planted are still germinating, however I am beginning to see some shoots popping up. I admire your strength of purpose, your honesty, and loving, sharing nature. You have been my role model. Actually, all the women I met in the class have been part of the whole experience of role modeling. It is seldom that I get the opportunity to sit in circle with woman my age who are going through the same transitions. I left your workshop feeling empowered. I still feel that way.

Mama Donna is a powerful force behind women’s inspiration and empowerment. She's just a ball of fire — impossible to put into words. She's got an amazing talent for bringing a group together; for embracing each individual's uniqueness, and making everyone feel empowered and important. It was transformational for me to define my midlife and celebrate where I've been and where I'm going.

Last week I spent five days with Mama Donna at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. Each day we sat in ritual circle, blessing, anointing, honoring and nurturing the Goddess Queen in ourselves and in each other. We shared our intentions, our journeys, our need for release and renewal, our aspirations, our beauty, our majesty. On the fifth day in a coronation ceremony, chanting and drumming in Goddess celebration, we crowned ourselves Queens with crowns of our own creation.

Thanks for a wonderful workshop last Sunday! I left there feeling really uplifted and inspired! I also realized how much I miss spending time with groups of women. You are truly a queen, a shaman, and a goddess.

—Vicki, Brooklyn, NY


Being with you at your workshop has been a transformative experience for me. I feel as though you gave a piece/peace to myself that I have needed for a while in order for my life puzzle to fall into place. I have a renewed sense of spirit, optimism, direction, and energy toward envisioning my future. My experience of myself in my marriage is more centered and my career plans for the future are more specific.

—Barb, Poughkeepsie, NY


My life is enriched by learning from your wisdom sharing.
