Example text

At the time of this meeting, I did not understand the significance of the event. Later I realized that in this encounter I had reconnected with a lineage of priestesses to whom I was karmically linked, and I had received a direct initiation and transmission from one of them. Learning the dance was merely the first of several initiatory gateways through which I was to pass. Shortly after returning from the first of several study trips to India, I had a dream. It was a short, simple dream, yet I would puzzle over it for many years.

In each woman I looked for authenticity, a commitment to her path, thoughtfulness, and—last but not least—the willingness to speak honestly and openly about her sexuality. ” I would ask. “What is your story?
