I am proud to say that I studied with renowned Astrologer Isabel M. Hickey in Boston, Mass., during the early 1970s. I was part of her "Friday night Fix" meditation group, at B.U.
Eliza is an almost-sophomore in high school. She loves birds, looking for birds, and most everything related to birds. She also plays the piano, is an active Girl Scout, loves gardening, and practices karate. She is very excited to be on summer vacation. She is also very excited to be fully vaccinated and to be able to see her friends again!
Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach
Julie has enjoyed teaching young children for nearly 30 years before choosing to move into a new career in Integrative Nutrition. Her interest was sparked when she observed the connection of the typical diet of highly processed, artificial foods and increasing chronic health issues, food sensitivities, behavior and learning issues. She also realized that some of her own health issues were stemming from stress and anxiety caused by the changing public school system. She now coaches individuals, couples and families and provides workshops and classes both in Integrative Nutrition and cooking.
Julie lives in Wiscasset with her husband, golden retriever and cat in an old farmhouse nestled on a hill overlooking the Sheepscot River. They have raised 5 grown children and enjoy art, music, cooking and traveling. Julie can be reached for questions or comments at: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

Reflections on living the life of a Priestess in Maine, illumined by love and suffering, Earth’s gifts, and Divine Guidance.
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. She offers voice instruction and vocal sound healing, creates original ceremonies for weddings and other life passages, gives readings of Mythic Astrology and Tarot, is a Reiki master, and has developed Cosmic Harmony, a group process of singing intuitively for the transmission of healing and visionary realizations. She is the author of Lightning Holds My Hand, a Woman’s Journal of Guidance, written during a difficult time, recording words of wisdom and compassion she received intuitively. Ruby-Throated Labyrinth, planted with calming herbs, is open to the public for walking meditation. For more about Andrea’s work: www.rubythroatedspirit.com

I’m Sarah Miller, a semi-retired international energy and business journalist and editor, and now a Camden resident. Having spent a career learning about old energy, I’ve turned to new energy in recent years. In doing so, I’ve come to see how important fossil fuels and the way they work were to the structure of 19th and 20th Century economies and societies. I’ve also started to imagine what cleaner, more distributed energy forms could mean for the structure of 21st Century economies and societies. The climate crisis is frightening, but the energy and social transitions that accompany it can bring us a better world -- if communities like ours here on the Midcoast work in a bottom-up, “distributed” way to make it so. That’s what Tales from the Transition is all about.
I am active in the community through the Camden Energy and Sustainability Committee, the Camden Philosophical Society, the board of Bay Chamber Concerts and Music School, and the climate activist group Climate Matters Maine. I am a former president of the Camden Conference. The views expressed in this blog, however, are strictly my own.
