My desire, my pledge, for all of us is that we remember our true nature, the fullness of our womanhood and the expansiveness of our sexuality. We are more than just our bodies. Sexuality is more than just the physical act; it is a beautiful, sacred, and powerful thing. May we each spend time getting to know and cherishing our bodies. May we honor the wisdom they hold. May we joyfully inhabit these sacred, beautiful, rhythmic bodies of ours in a way that is empowering and delightful. May we hold space for our sisters, daughters, mothers and aunts to do the same in their own way and at their own pace.
To bring things home, I’d like to leave you with this amazing quote:
“Our wild nature does not lie in the gestures created by a culture that wants to turn women into the ultimate consumers by telling them constantly they are not thin enough, sexy enough, or desirable enough. Our wild nature lies in the incandescence of joyful experience of being a creature of nature. That we ARE nature. To recognize that we are un-owned, alive, and tremoring with the pulsations of life. Not some emulation of a perfected life with a frozen grin. We are blood and bone, fire and grit, saliva and sweat, encased around a pearl of such exquisite softness that it puts to shame those who look for the holy grail elsewhere.” – Nisha Bhairavi
Ok. I know I have more to share, so stay tuned for part 2. And ladies and gents let’s get cheeky: please share your thoughts!
