Inspiring Women to Thrive
I am ready to be part of a new conversation on women’s wholeness.
As a medical doctor I have been dealing with disease for more than twenty years. I have also been witness to the suffering caused by the disempowerment of women in the roles that have been assigned to them by society or simply arising from of their own ignorance. I feel strongly that we have to move away from merely treating disease and promoting wellness to ask ourselves the next question:
What could wholeness look like and how can we not only create health but also bring about a genuine sense of being fully alive?
The original meaning of the word ‘health’ is wholeness and to create a life of wholeness is to address life and health on all levels – mind, body and soul. Living a meaningful life requires of each of us the ability to embrace ourselves completely and live from a space of embodied wisdom in everyday life. This means living consciously in every moment with more care, compassion, creativity, intuition and passion.
I feel a profound concern about the need to shift the conversation about the role of women as well as a deep commitment to be part of the restoration of the true feminine spirit that is part of me and every other woman. In creating wholeness and meaning a woman becomes the author of her own life and takes her place, fully empowered to be herself and only herself.
It is time for a different story to be told. A new myth to be created that contains within it the seeds of a new humanity. This myth is the story of every woman. It smells like the saltiness of the ocean, the wetness of the earth, holy basil and cinnamon. This new story is held by the cells of her body and sung from her soul.
When a woman tells her story, the world heals. When a woman creates a new story for herself, the world wakes up.
