The soil of the feminine soul runs rich and deep,
Watered by undercurrents invisible to those dwelling only on the surface,
Women who face the challenge of the softening of their soul soil,
Who allow themselves to become vulnerable,
Who invite the surface streams down into their depths,
Who expose their roots to the fructifying moisture from above and below.
They are the warriors of today – the catalysts of transformation.
They risk death of psyche, body, and soul
in order to experience fully the transforming powers present
in the domains of their deepest fears.
They emerge as does the phoenix —
Motivated, activated, determined to find the courage to create their lives,
To choose to live as individuals committed to self-awareness,
Self-centered women, centered in themselves,
Committed to voicing and acting upon their ideals in the world–
A world that does not ask for change, to be turned inside out,
A world that silently and loudly cries for nurturance, for sustenance,
A world that cries for those beings with the strength of heart and the will
to carry out the tasks of transformation.
They are the Women Warriors.
