An Enchanted Life

" I believe that being masterful conductors of our lives, in full heart wise power, is what is going to change the world for the better. People who step up into their mastery and express and give all they are most brilliantly designed to create, are living their highest purpose."- Rhianne


Are you like me, a wide-eyed, wonder-seeking old soul, part woodland nymph, part world explorer? If so, I’m grateful our paths crossed, we must be kindred spirits!

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:

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. 

It’s what makes our lives rich, creative and most of all, meaningful.

Will you join me?

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.


" 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".

"A petite powerhouse with an ageless spirit and an ancient soul"


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.
