A Way to Live

"A woman who has uncovered and honors her intimacy with the earth through developing a relationship with nature or through the power within her own body carries a wisdom of infinite mystery and potential. 

She moves through life with one foot in a strange ocean, one on the solid land of her ordinary life.

This is not just an idea, but a way to live.

Mystics, artists, and mothers of young children know this ability to be half-absorbed in unnameable creative forces while still attentive to their embodied reality, capable on a moment-to-moment basis of drawing from those deeper forces to create and nourish life around them."

- Hilary Hart, "Body of Wisdom"

Painting by Elisabeth Slettnes
