How might your life have been different?
"How might your life have been different if there had been a place for you, a place of women? A place where other women, somewhat older, had reached out to help you as you rooted yourself in the earth of the ancient feminine...A place where there was a deep understanding of the ways of women to nurture you in every season of your life. A place of women to help you measure your own stature...to he...lp you prepare and know when you were ready. A place where, after the fires were lighted, and the drumming, and the silence, you would claim, finally in your Naming, as you spoke slowly into that silence, that the time had come, full circle, for you, also, to reach out...reach out as younger women entered into that place...reach out to help them prepare as they struck root in that same timeless earth. How might your life be different?" -Judith Duerk, Circle of Stones
