The Dakinis Retreat was a journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine. The
dark days of the moon invited all of the women to dive deeply inside...
and to make an inner journey towards the hidden places to be embraced
with fierce compassion.
“Equanimity is said to be an anchor. It protects you against the
“worldly winds”— pleasure and pain, praise and blame, gain and loss, and
fame and disrepute—by keeping you anchored so you’re not tossed about
by those winds.”
“We have our mind and our thoughts, and they can rev up emotions.
But if we use our emotions as the object of meditation, as our friend
and support, it’s like standing on the bank of the river and observing.”
"As long as we define ourselves by who we should be,
how powerful as women we can be,
what we should look like,
through the definitions of others,
we can never know our true power and what effect we can have on our world.
