"so many swirling ideas, inspirations, & collaborations! what is this feeling that happens when you LIVE INTO your purpose? i don't know how to describe it. just giddy with all the possibilities for reconnecting women to nature. restoring them. restoring the wild. women as earth keepers, wild priestesses, culture-healers!! and i get to facilitate that!!! the nourishment! wow! after having been given a BIG YES from the women in our circle, i finally remember the call ~ the contract. breathing new life into it. following through on all the things that light me up! sacred ecology. divine connection. restoration of our wild souls that mirrors the wild places in nature. my soul's purpose. the reason i was put here on this earth! it LIGHTS up every synapse & nerve ending in my body until i'm literally buzzing with just exactly how profound it is that everything i've ever needed to make this happen is right in front of me!! right within me, living in my history. in my DNA. and for the first time in my life i feel totally READY to make it happen. this is my activism. this is my wild spirit heart."
