We Are What the World Needs
for Healing

Lisa Sarasohn

I had the pleasure of speaking with Victoria Stewart for an interview appearing last month in Issues & Alibis. Here's a brief excerpt from our conversation:

I believe that none of us has arrived on this planet by accident.

We've each received an engraved invitation to be here now, to add our gifts to the mix of being human.

We're each here to enact the purpose that ignites our soul power. As women validate ourselves, speak our truth, and act upon our deep soul guidance, we bring the feminine principle into the world.

We, in all our authenticity, are exactly what the world needs for healing....

Wishing you well,

Crown Yourself Queen...
...and Gird Yourself for Action!

SageWoman That's the title of my article in the March issue of SageWoman. Watch for it on newsstands, or subscribe to this magazine dedicated to "the goddess in every woman."

Back in 1996, SageWoman published The Goddess Ungirdled: How I learned to love my belly and found the Sacred Feminine within, launching this affirming approach to developing body confidence.


Healing Bodies & Souls:
       The Century Project

Bodies & SoulsBodies & Souls is a series of stunning (and at times playful) nude portraits of women combined with their personal statements.

Presented as a book as well as a traveling exhibit (plus a selection of photos online), the images bring forth what photographer Frank Cordelle calls The Century Project.

Cordelle photographs women of many sizes, shapes, and ages — from newborn to nearly 100 years old.

Celebrating women and our bodies as subjects, not objects, The Century Project is on view with exhibitions in Kentucky, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina — April 6-9 at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee.

I heartily invite you to consider bringing an exhibit to your community. See The Century Project's website for details.

Bodies & Souls

Times & Valentines

Like many holidays, Valentine's Day holds a secret.

In other times, this day was a celebration of women's pro-creative power — the body-centered power to renew life, and the pleasure of doing so!
