“Here in the South we don't hide crazy. We parade it on the porch and give it a cocktail."

All about me!


Dana Croy

Welcome to The Well Seasoned Life blog. After blogging for many years as Feng Shui Mama, I've shifted from being "momcentric" to "womancentric". I'll aways be (and blog about being) a mom, but the time is now to share my authentic voice about my authentic life. Get ready to talk about spirituality, books, home, restaurants, health, wellness, family, gardening, marriage, friendship and so much more. And, yes, I'll be talking about my work as a business consultant to women working in the field of reclaiming and consciousness! 

Read more about me below.

“She wasn't doing a thing that I could see, except standing there leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together.”

― J.D. Salinger

Magic is Afoot!

  • I am a native Tennessean (6th generation!)

  • My husband and I have been together for 25 years. He is my biggest cheerleader, best friend and a frequent annoyance all at once. In other words, the perfect partner.

  • My children hold my heart. Noah and Arwyn (yes, like Lord of the Rings) are amazing humans and I am blessed to see these two beings evolve.

  • My heroes are my parents, my in-laws, several family members and a handful of AMAZING teachers from my high school - 2 especially that were the first "Wild Women" in my life.

  • I am one of those weird people who hates hiking, loves being in nature, hates hiking.

  • Each year I cannot wait to begin playing Christmas music!!!!!

  • In the mid-90's, I was introduced to  the world of women's spirituality. It was a blessed time in my life full of teachings, teachers, good friends and connection. I have participated in and facilitated many women's spiritual circles the last 25 years.

  • I became a Reiki Master in 2002 and use Reiki in my everyday life.

  • My altar has images of Mother Mary and Diana (Artemis), my patron Divine Feminine energies.

  • In 2005, I trained as a feng shui practitioner.  

  • I am as at home in a church as a fire circle.

  • For 3 years I worked for Nashville's oldest metaphysical store - Magical Journey. I consider this one of the best times of my life. I now find myself once again in that space and work contractually for Cosmic Connections, a 25+ year old store on 8th Avenue South, Nashville.

  • I have had a rich but exhausting volunteer life. I served on the board of a private school for two years, on the board of the Families with Children from China for 4 years (2 of which as President), and was the fundraising mom for Nashville's oldest Boy Scout Troop for several years. Currently I act as volunteer marketing and media advisor for SOWN Global (formerly Caring for China's Orphans, a Nashville based non-profit.

  • The most important book on my bookshelf is Simple Abundance, by Sarah Ban Breathnach. I should say "books" as I have the original and the new anniversary edition.

  • My top 5 spiritual books for the awakened human are listed here.

  • I love to cook and can often be found in the kitchen. 

My World In Quotes

“The Goddess is Alive. Magic is afoot.”

"If you can't say anything nice about anybody, come sit by me."

“For all the Gods are one God,” she said to me then, as she had said many times before, and as I have said to my own novices many times, and as every priestess who comes after me will say again, “and all the Goddesses are one Goddess, and there is only one Initiator. And to every man his own truth, and the God within.” -from The Mysts of Avalon
