Today is International Women’s Day and I could not think of a better way to celebrate than to share some links that CELEBRATE WOMEN!
I look around at the women that I know – Single and Married Mothers who are juggling families and work, Wives, Grandmothers, Animal Activists, Corporate Leaders, Entrepreneurs, Feminists, Conservatives, Liberals, Women who work at every kind of job imaginable, Women that are Queens of the Home and I am always in awe at the strength, capability and sustainability of Women.
We rock. Really. We do. We are all together in this crazy adventure and we can connect!
And we need to celebrate Ourselves and Each Other more than once a year. Each Day – Reach out and give a hug or a cheer for a woman you know – let them know that you see the tremendous work that they are doing and you think they are WONDROUS. Women supporting Women … now that is a movement that could change the WORLD!
The Dark Moon is Sunday, March 10 and this is the traditional time of women’s menses and the time that tribal women would have gathered in the Red Tent to soothe, support and story-tell. Here are a few Red Tents that you should know about …
- The Red Tent Movie – Spreading the word and hosting screenings worldwide – Things We Don’t Talk About: Woman’s Stories from the Red Tent is a groundbreaking 72-minute documentary film by award winning filmmaker Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost, PhD. Order a copy and schedule a screening in your OWN Red Tent!
- Alisa Starkweather is a Founder of the Red Tent Temple Movement
- My Facebook friend and Local Red Tent Healing Arts Center owner, Lisa Kelly, just emerged victorious from a crazy court trial that has her landlord attempting to evict her for feeding kitties & culminated in the death by entrapment of those kitties and Lisa’s as well. She has had a rough few months but this week was VICTORY! Check out her beautiful center here in South Florida!
- Yogini Shambhavi L. Chopra – Yogini Shambhavi’s writings bring me to tears … tears of confirmation, tears of the SOUL … her connection with Shakti is intense and Shaktipat flows from her effortlessly. I am currently reading Yogic Secrets of the Dark Goddess and it sets me ALIGHT. From the book:
“Ma Kali is ever so much an awesome power to contend with. Her shakti, energy, from deepest levels permeates our inner and outer universe. Kali loves to stir up a cataclysm in our being, as Ma did in so many instances of my life. Yer her tremendous push is crucial, keeping everything in motion towards our inner blossoming.” Yogini Shambhavi

“To be a Yogini is the highest spiritual goal for all women.
It is the way to become one with the Goddess within and to bring her out in expression to uplift the world that is really her creation.
Yet it is not an outer appearance but a state of inner energy and ecstasy that makes the Yogini.
She cannot be manipulated, defined or even ever entirely known.”
Yogini Shambhavi Chopra
