A Poem: “When you walk in the woods Do you hear Our mother calling? She calls to us in our dreams, “I have not forgotten you; My sons and daughters, The wind sings you lullabies, The earth carries your weight, The fire keeps you warm, The air flows in your breath. My heart and hearth are yours. Come home, my children.”
“Don’t ever tone down.”
“Wild? Yes I guess so… Breaking old structures, being at the right time in the right place, having the great luck to meet fellow amazing people! And learning to follow my heart. Which I have done.”

“Making beauty is my mode of healing.”
“I will gladly quiet my mind to listen to the song of the river! Sometimes tranquil, sometimes roaring, always playful, always kind. We are friends and I will gladly sing her song!”
“I live for color and for trees.”
“It is a privilege to live another day. Let me be in sunshine, in love, in the fragrant dew of the ancestors, full of gratitude.”

“Explore, experience and embrace everything that comes your way. You’ll learn and grow and maybe eventually find your place in the world.” – on finding oneself
“Being true is becoming aware of your being as already great, to being I Am.”
“Wild? Not always. Sometimes I feel rusty like my bracelet, stowed above the bilge for summer. Strength exists in many forms and I’m learning to Be in each of its seasons.”
“Expanding my horizons has enriched my mind. As a girl, I let others do the thinking for me. Now as a woman, my instincts choose my path and it is imbued with serenity. The wilderness surrounds me and I hear myself as I never have before.”
“A woman’s intuition is a powerful force. By healing and strengthening our connection and trust in it, we are helping to heal the whole world.”
“In writing and fiber arts communities, I have found a sisterhood that draws from an ancient well of Female solidarity and inspires me to be fully Female in every fiber.”
“My bones are wise and my blood speaks truth of all ages. I ground myself in the subtle practices of the ten bodies to fully activate my truth and my purpose. I am here for embodiment. I am here to teach. I am here to learn. I am here for liberation, for strength, for love.”
“Wild is the Woman that speaks when I listen. Intuition is the Woman that knows when I sense. Instinct is the Woman that leads when I feel. Healer is the Woman that gives when I receive. I am the Woman I am when I dance.”
A poem: Shadow speaks, Listen, In the darkness, She whispers. Even at this late hour, Moon thin, Embers cool, She serves. In your hunger, Take her bitter fruits, For they bear the sweet seeds, Of redemption.
”Challenges and difficulties do not come in my life to break me, but to make me realize and to prove that nothing is stronger than a determined woman.”

“Staying loyal to the journey.”
“I am committed to listening to myself because I know that my feelings are valid and they matter.”
I come from a past-and-present sea of powerful women: brave, uncompromising, honest and compassionate. We balance the joys and burdens of our lives with the grace of dancers. We dig deep into ourselves and the earth to uncover the seeds of wisdom and to embrace our full, blooming potential.
“Wild is our sensual connection to Earth.”
“The 9 muses blend and collaborate. Where they do is the place genius exists.”
