There’s enormous strength to be found in daring to be vulnerable. It’s not uncommon for the story of one woman to be the story of another too. We mirror each other and learn from each other. We help each other to rely on our own strength. Slowly but surely, you discover that sisterhood can also be safe, that there’s no gossip or mothering, but simply room for your story. It’s not about the effects on the outside world, but about interconnectedness at a deeper level. That is deeply feminine. The new skills are: autonomy, really listening to each other, and practicing what you preach. ~Corrine Baard

inquiry for today~ finding one’s tribe begins with shedding……..what are you letting go of to make room for your stories?
Today’s circles for women are different; they’re not born from necessity, not against men, but a chance to consciously get together and help each other out in a feminine way. According to Jean Shinoda Bolen, the Jungian psychiatrist and author of Goddesses in Everywoman, these new circles will change the world. She states that circles like these cure us of the burden of a patriarchal oppression that has lasted for centuries. They put us into our strength, empower us and connect us with each other, as well as with something greater that transcends us. Something feminine. Something round. ~Lisette Thooft
