From the Author
From the very beginning, the power in this group was palpable, as each woman shared her unique gifts. An organically rich process began with the emergence of in- person and on-line writing circles. The women supported each other with listening, acceptance, understanding, compassion and gentle reading. Ellen Koronet, one of the contributing authors, developed a creative process and gently offered this to many of the women in the group.
This is how women are making a difference in the world, being the change and sharing with each other. Listening, supporting, encouraging and celebrating. Creating and "holding space" for each woman's unique gifts and leadership to emerge. We create community. Together, we are birthing new ways of supporting each other as we step more fully into our lives, sharing our unique gifts with our families, communities and the world.It takes courage and commitment to awaken to a new consciousness.
It takes great courage to awaken to oneself and to be authentic and vulnerable with others. Within conscious community, we see, really see women and experience being truly seen. We see, acknowledge and celebrate their journey, their hopes, their dreams, their pain, their joy and their wisdom just as the same is done for each of us. We have small conscious group experiences as a practice ground for a new way of being in the world. All our communication can be direct and all our conversations can be expansive. We can commit to opening our eyes and keeping them open, making conscious choices in every aspect of our lives. We can live authentic, honest, heart-centered lives. When we do, our individual lives will change and our relationships and families will benefit. As we continue living heart centered, aware lives, our work and communities will shift. As more of us commit to conscious living, the world will transform.
