Last week, I was getting ready to teach our first online Woman Warrior workshop and I noticed I was super nervous.
I was nervous that it somehow wouldn't work -- that the "magic" of Woman Warrior wouldn't translate online.
So I got a pen and started listing everything that creates the auspicious magic that is Woman Warrior -- community, trauma-informed yoga, healing meditations, etc. -- and then I wrote down "students", my pen stopped.
I instantly realized that it's YOU that makes this work magic.
As I see it, you are
and filled with love.
It takes deep courage to break cycles of abuse; to have our bodies violated, to have our hearts broken, and still be committed to truth and grace and growth.
I don't have to worry anymore because now I know that every time you are there, there is magic.
So thank you for being you.
