entrance to the garden.jpg

Like you, I am a free spirited soul who LOVES LIFE with every fibre of my being, and is called to contribute my talents & gifts to the creation of a new thriving culture that honors LIFE and well being for all . For me, living an Enchanted Life means having the freedom to be totally, completely my true and best self.

I play many parts in the circle of life. Artist, writer, teacher, priestess, performer,
oracle, mentor, gardener, partner, director and above all, Devotee of the Divine Mother, LIFE HERSELF.

I have put a TON of time and thought into creating this website and the offerings it contains. I do not claim to be a scholar or a person with a long list of credentials.( well, I have a few) I have forged my own credentials as I have learned in the school of LIFE, how to be a wise, wildish, creative free, devoted, caring, loving, honest, compassionate, considerate, joyful and magical human being.( you can find my “official bio here”)

I have done this, by teaching and developing systems, events, programs, music and art, that would allow ME to express my very best, and as a result, bring out the BEST in others.

You see, I wanted to bring out the best in me, because I was about the worst you could be at one time in my life. For the first thirty years of my life, I was a pretty hurt, angry, sad, amazing, creative, and self destructive woman. I learned as they say, the hard way, on many occasions. My family years were difficult, and the abuse, confusion, anger, depression and frustration I encountered at home, were difficult for a sensitive intuitive fairy girl
like me. To make a rather long story short, my quest to be the best ME, began early on. I NEVER gave up, through hell and high water, on the goal of being my best. And when I say best, I do not mean best by any terms other than the best YOU that YOU can be, in all your true design, with your beauty blazing

It can be arduous, to make such a journey to yourself. However, I can tell you that it is possible to heal, to thrive, to become re-enchanted with life.


IF I COULD RE-ENCHANT MY LIFE, I KNOW THAT OTHERS WHO ARE SEEKING A WAY TO ENCHANTMENT CAN DO IT AS WELL.

One of my greatest delights is to inspire others to be their best selves. I discovered it when I first began teaching/facilitating women’s groups. It was such a high, to create events, circles, writings, art, music, etc. that would bring the best out in these magical women.

So, after a sabbatical where I have taken many years in semi-seclusion to do deeper healing, writing, creating, formulating and innovating new ways to inspire you:

Will you join me as we explore my Enchanted realm by visiting my Art studio of stunning portraits, perhaps you will want one for yourself! My Blog is full of delightful tales and tips for living and then there is the Enchanted Heart Wisdom Council with my Oracle sessions , mentoring and the Academy. Enjoy Free Gifts I have created to inspire and delight you.

And do continue reading about me if it pleases you.

The Tall Tale of a Tiny Wise Woman

There once was a magical girl, who lived with a mother and father who were wounded and could not recover from their wounds.

The Sometimes, they would hurt the magical girl, and did not realize how special she was

" My quest for Enchantment was inspired by a desire to heal from an abusive childhood in which I became terribly disenchanted, depressed, sick and angry with LIFE. I suffered from a severe eating disorder, dis-functional relationships and low self esteem. By the grace of the Goddess, I discovered my spiritual path, and began the road to recovery and spiritual awakening. My devotion to the Divine Mother saved me. Following the wisdom of the heart, guided me. Many great adventures and powerful life lessons have and continue to come to me as a result, and today, I am Enchanted with and dearly love LIFE with all my heart".


Hello, free spirited magic maker with talent galore, who loves flowers and faeries, deep quiet and passionate embraces.

Can you recall the time you saw thousands of butterflies dancing in the woods? Or singing to the full moon on a magical night?

The wonder and enchantment of life Are you a wise woman with an ageless spirit who wants to live an enchanted life, and share it with others?

I imagined you would find your way here, I am so delighted you did!

Can you recall the feeling of walking in the mountains & speaking with your inner wise woman, deeply ? Do you remember your favorite tree, the handsome one you loved to hug?

Long ago, when I went by another name, I was very dis-enchanted. I tried in vain to create an authentic, loving, healthy life

I am an explorer. I love to discover ways to find beauty, happiness, health, wealth and LOVE by following the guidance of the heart. I have found great treasures in my wanderings, and I want to share them with you.

I am a VERY sensitive soul. A petite powerhouse of creativity who is now in my 6th DACADE OF LIFE!! I have an ageless spirit and am learning to roll with the flow of taking care of an older body while wanting to create a more enchanted magnificent life than ever!

At the core, I love to be inspired, and I want to inspire you. Seeing and feeling you being inspired, is soul food for me. I LOVE to witness your blossoming into the woman you are designed to be.

Do you remember the first time you saw an octopus in an aquarium? All twisty arms, shifting colors and fluid body? Or the last time you took a moonlit walk, gushing over moon shadows and awestruck by the silent huntress owl?

There’s never been a more important time to savor such wonderment, and nurture the inquisitive, explorer child in all of us. Already, I feel deeply the loss of old-fashioned play and wonder, mourn the passing of the age of discovery, and lament how technology has lulled us to imagined but not quite lived, adventures.

As an artist and storyteller, I ask a simple question:

In 1987 I had a spiritual experience while standing on a red rock mountain in Sedona. I prayed with all my heart to have “the magic” be returned to my life. Although we ( my husband at the time and I) had a beautiful home and many of the trappings of the “good” life, I was unhappy and frustrated. I knew “something was missing”.

Though I had done a great deal of inner work, I was still struggling to heal from a serious eating disorder, abuse, low self esteem and depression.

The answer to my call came from the Goddess, within me. I heard her voice for the first time, and she began to guide me. I started my first women’s group within weeks, and became a devotee of the Sacred Feminine which has lasted for over 30 years.

This path has informed all aspects of my life. I began to teach and facilitate ongoing groups here in Sedona, and then was featured on the show 48 hours, washing the feet of a wise woman while wearing my fairy wings! Soon, I was traveling, speaking, performing and selling my art, all dedicated to the Goddess, at conferences and retreats, for private groups and at festivals, all over the U.S. and in five countries. I did this for twenty years and inspired thousands of people!

I have had the great honor of being a presenter at conferences and events with some of the world’s great authors and activists. Jean Houston, Don Miguel Ruiz, Sarah Mclean, Luisah Teish, James Rousse, Uqualla, Andrea Smith, Marianne Williamson, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Rianne Eisler, John Robbins, Larry Dosey, Dr. E. Duran, Carol E. Parrish, Scarlet Rivera and more.

How would our lives change if we reconnected to the visceral, physical and natural around us? If we reclaimed what truly matters in our lives?

To all explorer hearts aching for an unknown more, sail with me on a wonder-filled journey of re-embracing our humanity, our wildness, our very essence of aliveness. 

I LONG for magical moments to fill my life and I feel we are ALL designed to long for and create lives as a beautiful, wonderous experience.

To begin your adventures, explore with me through my nature-inspiredart experiences, visit the Travelogue for wonder-seeking ideas, or take a peep into the Curio Shop for original art, gifts and tools. For my fellow artists, there’s the Labyrinth of Enchantment, a place for healing the creative spirit through wonder.

I have worked in the field of Human Potential for over 30 years, focused on Women’s Spirituality and the re-enchantment of our everyday lives. I have had the honor of inspiring and guiding thousands of people with my original one woman musical show, seasonal events, mentoring programs, sessions, writings and artistic creations of clothing, jewelry and fine art Tapestry Portraits.

I have been a presenter at numerous conferences and gatherings ( see list below), and appeared on 48 hours, in the movie The Song within, been a writer for Goddess Guru magazine and other publications, and most recently, am the founder/director of Simply Enchanted Living and the Enchanted Heart Wisdom Academy.

I have combined my experience and talents to create The Enchanted Heart Wisdom Oracle. It is the doorway to my legacy. It is a magnificent method of divination and transformation that opens the door to a world of wisdom within, and invites you to become the co-creator with nature and the divine to fashion a life you love, and contribute to

There’s never been a more important time to savor such wonderment, and nurture the inquisitive, explorer child in all of us. Already, I feel deeply the loss of old-fashioned play and wonder, mourn the passing of the age of discovery, and lament how technology has lulled us to imagined but not quite lived, adventures.

Do you feel it, an energy of emergence, of deeper wisdom and refinement? A yearning to express yourself and be more aligned with spirit and your magical nature than ever before? Me Too!! I am so glad to meet you and welcome you to my world.

In 2004, Rhianne sold her Sedona home and all her possessions, and took off on what would become an epic four year vision quest, during which time, she created the prototypes for a brilliant heart centered Oracle and Teaching System that is greatly based on her experience with Women’s Wisdom Circles. Rhianne returned to Sedona and resettled in 2008. After a decade of research, testing, designing and implimenting, Rhianne is now sharing this exciting tool of transformation, The Enchanted Heart Wisdom System, with the world.

The "Song Within Documentary Film"

"In 2013  I had the honor of being one of 16 women chosen for a documentary film about Wise Women of the Sedona area. Our film debuted at The Sedona Film Festival to rave reviews, and can now be purchased or viewed online, or seen on Gaia TV. Part of the film included footage of an amazing event for 100 women I co-designed, that launched The Enchanted Heart Wisdom Council into the world.
