Sometimes a small number of words are just
what we need...
"When she stopped conforming to the conventional picture
of femininity she finally began to enjoy being a woman."
"...when you tune out the critical voices in your head and embrace what your heart is saying, you don't just make your own life better. You make the world better."
"The first question I ask myself when something doesn't seem to be beautiful is why do I think it's not beautiful. And very shortly you discover that there is no reason."
On a cool patch of earth
I curl into myself
Vowing to accept my body this time
And to return often to this land that nurtures me
Holds me in her wide palm
Whispering to me. . .
Your body reflects my own contours
Curves that mirror
Rolling hills and grand mountains
Dipping into valleys, canyons, crevices
Breathtaking and more exotic than flat lands and prairies.
If you can listen to the wisdom of your body,
love this flesh and bone,
dedicate yourself to its mystery,
you may one day
smiling from your mirror.
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
I celebrate this womanly, emotion filled physical temple that is my body.
I celebrate its often messy, complicated, juicy feelings and all its intense hungers.
I celebrate the joyous process of learning how to nourish, nurture and care for it in an ever more sacred and honoring way.

Arms raised, feet planted in earth
standing open to the world
sun kisses skin
wind cradles flesh
ample breasts and rounded belly
remember the moon’s face
power enters through naked soles
and rests inside the center
I am my own sacred space
I approach myself in a sacred manner
let others do the same
In the scenery of spring
there is nothing superior
are by nature
