Thinking about this piece from Starhawk (Dreaming the Dark) after meeting up with some Art of Hosting mates tonight:
Community. Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power. Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free.
Gratitude for experiencing this tonight. Soul-full.
