  • Sarah Thompson grew up in a household with at least one cat sharing the bed pillow at all times. She didn't see the Berlin Wall go up, but did watch it come down. Her energy and endurance were put to the test (mostly on the night shift) as an operating room technician for Labor and Delivery units in Maine and Colorado for ten years before a brief overseas volunteer trip prompted a change of occupation.
    Originally from Central Maine, Sarah, her notebook, and a large cache of semi-dry ink pens now reside in the Midcoast.

    ANDREA GOODMAN, owner of Ruby-Throated Spirit: Sanctuary, Voice Studio and Labyrinth, lives on Barter’s Island on the Boothbay Peninsula, since 1989. Coming from a New York City career as a pioneer of vocal music and innovative theater, she was ordained as a Priestess of the Ministry of Maat in 1998, and sees all her work, whether performing and teaching, counseling and healing, writing or composing, as priestess work.
