Around the world, men and women are beginning to stand, together and in resonant voice, to declare, ‘Enough!’.
Enough violence against women and girls! Enough mindlessness and brutality! Enough looking the other way and pretending it isn’t so! Enough fabrication of story to make it right and noble! Enough!
The toughest conversation we will ever have is the one we have with ourselves. As in every and all things, it begins with The One that I AM; and it begins, within.

The ancient Eqyptian goddess, Sekhmet, represents what the living expression of women can be. With the body of a woman and the head of the lioness, she calls to and awakens in us the truth of our capacity to give birth, to nurture and to sustain; and reminds us that we are equally capable of going after what we want, taking what is rightfully ours and ensuring that the roar of who we are is neither lost nor forgotten. In may well be that many are long overdue for the simple act of reconnecting our heads to our bodies… and trusting that we’ll be just fine!
