I am a mother and grandmother. I want to leave my legacy as a Beloved Ancestor. But right now I am responsible for the bad shape the world is in. I want to try to change that as much as possible, as quickly as possible. I have a fierce desire to protect all our children and grandchildren and fully appreciate the freely given gifts of our Mother Earth. I see birth as the metaphor for transformation and creation that if honored, will create a paradigm shift in our culture’s consciousness, which will compel us to heal our environment in order to heal ourselves. My focus is on inspiring women to change our culture’s story to compassion for the environments of Earth and Birth and to impel social change to sustain healthy, caring humans and a healed earth home.
