Dear Woman

As a woman in the 5th decade of life, I have witnessed The Women’s Rights Movement, the defeat of the  ERA (Equal Rights Ammendment) for the silly reason that uneducated people believed it would mean co-ed bathrooms. I have heard and read about female genital mutilation, rape to control and punish women in various cultures. I have seen the results of sexual assault as a therapist/social worker who counsels survivors of said traumas. I have observed the subservience of women in the guise of misogynistic spiritual beliefs. I have, with deep sadness, seen the impact of disregard for the Earth as Mother. We all pay the price for that.

AND I am heartened by a trend…that of men stepping forward and apologizing for what their gender has done, whether of not they have ever committed any of the aforementioned acts. The Divine Masculine is coming face to face with the Divine Feminine as together, we do the graceful dance of love and life.

A video called Dear Woman was created by author and speaker Gay Hendricks and author and awakening coach Arjuna Ardagh. It is a profoundly humble and bold form of communication that reaches beyond gender stereotype and into the heart of humanity. As I watched it, I experienced goosebumps and tears and it resonated as truth. Although I can’t speak for all women, for myself, I gratefully accept the offerings made by the men in the video.

Watch the video and I encourage you to take it to heart, whichever gender you happen to be.

Pass It Onword
Back in November, as I was meandering the aisles at the Mind Body Spirit Expo in King of Prussia, PA, I came to a booth at which two women were beaming beatifically. In front of them was a table of simple wares. Stones engraved with a word-  gratitude, strength, inspire, forgive, and kindness, we

How We Grieve
  "When my Guru died in 1973, I assumed that because of the important part he played in my life, and the love I felt for him, I would be inundated with grief. Surprisingly, I was not. In time, I came to realize why. He and I were so well established in Soul love that, in the years since he l

Recovering Human Doing
Lounging in bed, surrounded by lots of pillows and snuggled under quilts as I am typing these words. It is a drowsy, dozy Sunday morning. The radio is playing easing into my day tunes.  My standard weekend fare begins with Sleepy Hollow on WXPN which is a Philly based member supported Public Radio
