A healthy woman is like a wolf

“A healthy woman is much like a wolf: robust, chock-full, strong life force, life-giving, territorially aware, inventive, loyal, roving.”

~ Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Close encounters with birds

“If we learn to read birds, their behaviors and vocalizations – through them we can read the world at large. If we replace collision with connection, learn to read these details, feel at home, relax, and are respectful, ultimately the birds will yield to us the first rite of passage: a close encounter with an animal otherwise wary of our presence.”

~ Jon Young

Your soul knows your destiny

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself. If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.”

~ John O’Donohue
