The energy of the Divine Feminine is a powerful anchor for her work in the world.

Sesheta was the publicist for the 1998 launch of “A Season for NonViolence,” the 64-day international campaign that honored the work of Mahatma Gandhi and Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and has produced the Soul Sisters Women’s Retreat since 1999.
An active member of the Agape community and the Agape International Choir since 1990 and an Agape Licensed Spiritual Practitioner since 1993, she has facilitated breakout groups at Agape’s annual “Revelation” Conferences, led workshops and created sacred ceremonies and rites of passage for both individuals and organizations.

She is former Assistant Dean of both Holmes Institute School of Consciousness Studies and of Agape Institute.
Ever enveloped in an atmosphere of prayful awareness, Sesheta is an open, receptive and available avenue for the energy of health, healing and wholeness. She often appears as an actress in film, television and national print media, and is the proud mother of three wonderful daughters and has one granddaughter.
In Egyptian mythology, Seshat (also spelled Safkhet, Sesat, Seshet, Sesheta, and Seshata) was the Ancient Egyptian goddess of wisdom, knowledge, and writing. She was seen as a scribe and record keeper, and her name means she who scrivens (i.e. she who is the scribe), and is credited with inventing writing.
Mistress of the House of Books is another title for Seshat, being the deity whose priests oversaw the library in which scrolls of the most important knowledge was assembled. She is described as the goddess of history.
To grant the pharaoh of the Dynasty II immortality, she recorded his name on the leaves of the Tree of Life which grew near where she lived.
In art, she was depicted as a woman with a stylized papyrus plant above her head. The papyrus symbolized writing because the ancient Egyptians wrote on a material derived from papyrus. The papyrus plant, her symbol, was shown as having six spurs from the tip of the central stem, making it resemble a seven-pointed star.
Usually, she also is shown holding a palm stem, bearing notches to denote the recording of the passage of time, especially for keeping track of the allotment of time for the life of the pharaoh.
My heart is with me and it shall never come to pass that it shall be taken away.
I am Nebt en Abw.
I live in Ma’at
and I have my being in truth.
I live by my word
and my heart doth live.
I am Sesheta, the seven horned one;
namer of names, keeper of the akashic records,
mistress of the library,
Goddess of writers and scribes,
she who dwells in the heart,
who dwells in the centre of the body.
I live by saying what is in my heart,
and it shall not be taken away from me.
My heart is mine,
and it shall not be wounded.
No terror shall subdue me.
I have committed no sin against the gods;
I shall not suffer defeat;
I shall be victorious.
I open the door of heaven.
I govern my throne
and I give new birth to myself.
I am not the Child who trod the path of yesterday,
but I am Today.
I am she who is unborn
and the gods, with rose-bright countenances
are with me.
