This work of art serves as a poetic call to action to inspire women and others to follow a path with soul… in sisterhood.
This art work will remember you to surround yourself by a community of sisters, women of all kinds and generations. To be part of a woman circle on a monthly basis or to know you have the support of women friends is essential for our wellbeing but also to make this world a better place.
“The minds and spirits of women are powerful forces, particularly when harnessed in communion with other women. Women’s circles have been around for quite some time, and their presence is a healing and strengthening source for many. Furthermore, author and psychiatrist Jean Shinoda Bolen believes that women’s circles act as catalysts for change around the world.
Women as changemakers. By focusing on both the psychological and spiritual, women open the doorway for great change and empower one another to be leaders of positive change in their own lives and beyond. In this way, women empowerment itself acts as a tool for societal and psychospiritual change. After all, when strong women join together, who can stop them?
Contribute to great change. Each of us wields the power to make change. By channeling our passions into all that we do, our voices and our actions, we take this world one step closer to being a better home for all who live in it. But joining with others is key to this effort. Bolen emphasizes the importance of relying on a support system, particularly women’s circles, in order to grow in influence.
The beginning of a new era. The metaphoric millionth circle is the tipping point into a post-patriarchal era. It is through the process of a growing number of people changing their perceptions and behaviors that a new era will begin. Those in the circles feed the activism by strengthening each other, and in turn, the movement as a whole. This spiritual book (The millionth circle) for women serves as a practical and poetic call to action, inspiring women and others to follow a path with soul.” …and so does this work of art!
