Why is this collaborative conversation important to me?

Why is this conversation important to me?

For these past six years, I have been working with women globally and with many different women's organizations. I have witnessed the creativity, commitment and resourcefulness being poured into these many hundreds of organizations. Each one is a reflection of a unique divine assignment; each one is an crucial piece of a larger pattern of women arising to bring balance and healing to our planet.

It is now time for these many organizations to explore together the magnificence of that larger pattern. It is now time for each of them to discover new abundance and greater effectiveness by working together with other organizations. It is now time to join our voices so that we might be heard loudly and clearly. It is now time for all of us to discover what we might be able to create together that we cannot dream of creating alone.

If you share this knowing and feel your cells vibrating in answer to this call, come join us!

I AM SO GLAD THAT THIS EFFORT HAS BEGAN.. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE INCLUDE CELEBRATORY AND RECREATION TIME.. The PURSUIT OF FREEDOM and PEACE MUST BE FOR THE PURPOSE OF ENJOYING LIFE, FOR HAPPINESS FOR EACH ONE IN THE WORLD, AND FOR THE HEALTH OF THE PLANET.. IT IS CLEAR TO ME THAT UNLESS THIS IS THE PURPOSE, IT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH.. FOR THE SITUATION OF MANY, OF THE MAJORITIES AROUND THE WORLD, IS LIKE THE SITUATION IN MY COUNTRY, INSECURITY, POVERTY, STRESS, MILITARISM, IGNORANCE..WE ARE NOT RESPECTED, THERE ARE NO DECENT JOBS FOR THE MAJORITIES, WOMEN ARE RAPED ADN VIOLATED, AND SO THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF MOST, AND THE WELL BEING OF THE PEOPLES ARE NOT AT THE CENTER OF THE VARIOUS ENTERPRISES, AND LEAST THE CARE OF THE PLANET.. SO I DO HOPE THIS IS AN INTERNATIONALIST MOVEMENT AND THAT IT IS TRUELY ABOUT THE PRACTICES THAT WILL MAKE THIS A REALITY.
