The Heroine’s Journey: Answering The Call of Sacred Theatre

MoonI awoke on the morning of January 1, 2013 — New Year’s Day — with what one might consider an unusual question. “What can I do to terrify myself this year?”

Within an hour of posing that question to myself, the phone rang.  A friend was inviting me to offer an evening talk on my work with women artisans around the world at a performing arts center nearby. I am used to giving these talks, the topic is familiar and comfortable. But what I said to my friend that morning took us both by surprise. “No. No more talks. No more speeches. I want to do a one-woman show. It will be called “The Heroine’s Journey: Tales of Love, Despair, Faith and Forgiveness.”

“Oh my goodness!” she exclaimed. “I had no idea you wanted to do a one woman show, Amber!”

“Neither did I,” I said, totally taken aback. “Neither did I.”
