Wild wombs still today,
The cooling calmness becomes,
Return to the peace.
Their voices speak from within,
Giving up on their fighting.
In the midst of the ESCAPELBGQ 6 week series, I decided to do a series on the Wild Woman’s Way book by Michaela Boehm. I searched my digital library and decided to do something ‘new‘ to support the Shakti community and immerse myself in the reflected language we use to express feminine topics.
Women are precious and nurturing and creators of life. In the mysteries of the womb, women can heal and help and reconnect to sanity. In the shadow of the womb (and that is exactly where the ESCAPELBGQ series resides) women’s stories become draconian nightmares of torture and hatred. Holding space for such horrible Maya Shakti makes me scream murder day and day and day after day. Doing the 6week series on rage (aka Anger) was easier than doing the series on ESCAPELBGQ, both are anger topics and the latter is more visibly about killing feminine and misogyny.
Holding space for transformation is a full-time job.
Hence I reach out to this beautiful Austrian sister’s book.
The first words of this book address the topic that I am living for the last years and that my teachers and my husband support. BODY.
The body is a wise and necessary vehicle for a living. It lets us join in the activities of human beings. with its many channels and centres the body is living. As women, I feel in the womb we have a place of connection with other women, a place that needs to properly communicate with the head. Some women don’t spark in the mind. The womb is central to a woman’s life and her way of being in the world. In there are connections to the whole body and having good teachers I am grateful for what they do for me and how information is shared between women via this interconnected web of the feminine. I am not one with my body. I want to be one in my body. I have no option except to fight for my own body. I cannot use my body as a resource for others. I have wildness in myself and this witness needs to be cherished and loved and accepted and I believe all women who are good and have wildness need to find their own inner balance of sense of calm with a sense of wildness. Until I met some women I didn’t have wildness in me. A lot of us don’t want to be wild. Wildness is not an everyday thing. It is fine for a while but it cannot be a lifestyle as it burns out the bodies of women. Body Body Body Body Body. The mandala of a body.
