It is such a privilege to reach this stage. Everything will be lost and here I am surrounded by things that are not yet taken from me! The gratitude is immense ❤️ The older I get the more I also feel my ancestors around me like a warm cloak surrounding me with comforting strength. I was not aware of them like this when I was younger.

I'm 30 and in my day to day life in the city, there is little connection to wise women.

Interestingly, I've been craving wise women in my life in a lot over the last few weeks and had fascinating occurrences like a 60+ year old women playing the handpan drum in the park and teaching me afterwards for 30 mins. Or group of 55 - 75 year old women in my neighbourhood searching for a new yoga teacher for their existing group. While I don't have capacity to commit to offering regular movement classes right now, I offered a sound bath with my alchemy crystal singing bowls during advent season.

I love how life is pouring the wisdom of these women into my life right now, a time when I am needing it the most.

Your post is balm for the soul, Michaela, as always! Danke!
