This past week I have watched 2 movies that have moved me greatly and have served as a reminder of what I have often left carefully hidden away from the world – the very roots of my being. This post is entitled “The Feminine Breath” as it is a way of breathing for all of us that has been lost, decimated, and yes hidden from our awareness for way too long. A resurgence is riding on the back of our planet that is daily reminding us of the havoc and imbalance we have created.
Jane’s Journey is about the astounding life and actions of Jane Goodall transitioning from a young girl with no college degree boldly following her childhood dreams into an internationally recognized woman living her passion and truth through daily actions and deep dedication to bring peace, compassion, and ecological health to all life.
The film Desert Flower, is a National Geographic stunningly filmed movie about Waris Dirie from Somalia who faces life challenges that are way beyond what any of us could imagine. Yet she chooses to step into her strength and truth exposing a mutilation practice that, due to her efforts, is finally being eradicated.
Both women demonstrate what it is to bring back the feminine way of breathing and to embody that breath in each moment of life.
