BODY

 
Our body is of the matter of the stars and the trees and the waters of the EARTH. Understanding our body, getting to be friends with our body, knowing how to care for “her” (our body) how to read “her” how to give “her “ what she needs to keep alive and living healthily and happily is part of our duty of love while
we are alive.
 

Our body is a woman’s connection between the seasons of the year, the growing of plants, the cycles of the moon, the energy of the sun. Our aim is to include and travel beyond the intellectual and biological understanding of our body to walk the path of companionship with our body in a journey of discovery, understanding, care and celebration. Our body holds the information from our ancestors, our mothers line and the story of our tribe. Accessing that information and reading it as if it were a map is a part of the journey to belonging.
