Usha Anandi. 31 | MARCH | 2020
Never underestimate the power of women gathering together.
I’m going to be honest, the last few weeks have been hard to navigate.
I spent the first two weeks of March totally immersed in ceremony, ritual, and some DEEP inner work with 29 women from over 15 different countries.
During this time, so much inside of me shifted, changed, healed, and transformed. I felt so deeply reaffirmed in my commitment to supporting women awaken to the sacredness of our bodies and tearing down all belief systems and structures that miseducate us and teach us we’re not enough.
I left the training feeling like an earth warrior, ready to walk side by side with the women of our collective to transform the world we live in today with our love, our compassion, our humanness.
Little did I know during the training, the outside world we were entering back into would need our help much sooner than I thought.
Right now I am feeling it ALL.
I am feeling the reality of systems of corruption and toxic leadership styles coming to light and reality as we know it is turned upside down.
I am present and curious as old systems that no longer serve us are incinerated in front of our eyes.
Something deep inside of me is saying… “This is what we have been waiting for, we must be ready.”
AND I am also feeling the humanness of fear, tension, and a need to curl up in a ball, cry for hours and be held.
As someone who has an elderly father with several underlying conditions, I am taking this time of self-isolation seriously.
So right now, I’m feeling it all. And my guess is, you are too. I’m feeling the eagerness of a revolutionary who is ready to rebuild the world from a place of love, and the humanness of fearing change and the uncertainty that is to come.
This week I came together with womben from over 20 countries and did the only thing I know how to do in stressful times, hold ceremony.
Together on the New Moon we laughed, we cried, we shared, we breathed, and we created space to hold hope for what’s to come.
And now to share the love, I’m sharing a clip of the replay with YOU so you can absorb some of the healing too. Head over to the Collective for the full ceremony.
