I know how hard it was to live in disconnection, shame, pain, and disharmony because I lived that way during some of the most formative years in my coming of age and young womanhood.
From a young age I got the message that our bodies are meant to be neglected and perfected.
I internalized that I was an object for someone else’s pleasure, and drew conclusions that my overall worth was based on my attractiveness and everything other detail was shoved into hiding...
I experimented to understand what it meant to enter womanhood.
I entered into sexual relationships early on in an attempt to explore and experience my body. I consulted with peers about puberty, menstruation, and birth control. I read library books on reproductive anatomy and sexual health. I never found the information I craved. The education and experience I was searching for wasn’t there.
Again and again, I found myself craving HONEST, SACRED, AND EMPOWERING INFORMATION.
After a turn of events at the age of 16, I was initiated by a group of Wild and Wise woman elders at a spiritual retreat into Empowered Womanhood.
