A Simple Ceremony

I was reminded today of a simple womens’ ceremony that originally came from Janine Parvarti Baker:

Sitting in a circle

One woman turns to her left – the woman on her left faces her- they have eye contact

She touchers her own eyes and says ‘Sister…. I see you’ and touches the womans’ eyes

She touches her heart and says ‘Sister…… I love you’ and touches the womans’ heart

She touches her womb area and says ‘Sister….. from my womb to your womb we are one’ and touches the womans’ womb area

there is a pause and these 2 women take as long as they need to hold each other in this loving space…..then the touched woman then turns to her left and repeats this to the sister on her left, and so it goes around the circle until all women have blessed one another.

But imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field. Great blog!
