Reflections on online learning

October 24, 2011

Last night I met with participants in Initiation 2012: Awakening Your Sacred Center by teleseminar. The four-week course has been taking place through Susun Weed’s Wise Woman University.

The 75 minutes we spent with each other was lovely — inspiring, insightful, supportive, exciting.

Among other adventures, we viewed how people in both ancient and modern cultures have honored the pro-creative power — the power to promote creation — centered within women’s bellies.

One image we discussed, shown at right, is the Goddess of Laussel, an 18-inch bas-relief  that dates approximately to 25,000 BCE. The figure, carved into a large block fallen from the upper margin of a limestone rock shelter, was discovered in 1911 in southwestern France.

Last night, the women I talked with made clear that not all women — perhaps not most women — are ready to reclaim our bellies as our body’s sacred center. Still, the women who are ready do appreciate good company through the process and a forum in which to share their experiences.

I come back to the knowing that reclaiming our bellies, our bodies, and ourselves is the real revolution, the real evolution of awareness that we need personally and globally.

Occupy Wall Street, good. Occupy our bodies, all the better.
