My guest today is a unique woman, who early in her life – after assisting a shooting victim – was told by the victim’ s mother: “You’re just everyone’s Mama Donna.” She has been known ever since as Mama Donna Henes. Donna is an artist, author, writer, teacher, minister, and support group facilitator who refers to herself as “an urban shaman”.
Donna has trained in and studied broad cultural diversities. Her mission and purpose is to provide and facilitate people’s empowerment through ritual, blessings and making connections with others. She has written several books on related subjects, most recently publishing Bless This House a wonderful guide and compendium on creating sacred space where you work, live and travel.
She creates art installations all over the country and has held public celebrations and rituals on the equinox and the solstices.
