Oh my. My journey seems to be ramping up. I just completed a women’s deep listening retreat in the rural foothills of Virginia with a community of women seekers from all over the country. Our two wonderful guides were instructors from the Georgetown community. Here is a poem from one of the lovely ladies which she wrote during a deep listening exercise. It made everyone shed a tear, and I just have to share it with this broader community of men and women in the SWOG world. It is so relevant in this season of Spring and time of rebirth.
A Season of Fierce Blooming
All beautiful women here
Loving souls, brave souls,
We share a proud strength
As we stretch into vulnerability
Like a flower opening to the Sun
Wild flowers, passionate roses,
Sacred lilies, vibrant daffodils
And many more
The variety is sumptuous
The colors breathtaking
Across the World we go about our blooming
Yet ALL connected are we
By the same fertile ground
That feeds our souls
And encourages our unfolding
Oh, Divine Garden
HERE I AM!

Thank you dear SWOG’s for your grace and kindness.
