GANGASHALA WOMEN’S LODGE

Dear Devi,

How easy it is to look around and see the effect of confusion, commercial sexuality, and sexism on ourselves, our sisters, mothers and daughters. It is time that we come together, a satsang of women, to explore these deep waves within ourselves and thereby encourage our sisters to move from confusion into light.

There can be no shadow without Light
See that you even in suffering you are beautiful
You are divine

In ancient cultures girls learned from women what a woman is. She learned how to understand herself in the larger society. Though there was room from oppression, there was also a deep sense of belonging and of self. Since we have become so mobile, so much of our learning comes from media. Media has no interest in our culture, only to sell something. Let us take this power back.

The Gangashala is a promise I made to honor the feminine.

Now is the time to breathe this voice into existence… birthing a new way to relate to ourselves and each other.

This is a call to all of us to contribute ourselves toward the illumination of the sacred feminine that we all share.

In Love, In deed,
Nomi
