Every woman I know has experienced being silenced.
Usually, it happens early, and more than once. The silencing is both personal and cultural.
These experiences lead you to conclude that your voice and your wisdom are crazy, not important, illogical, or unnecessary.
You decide, both consciously and unconsciously, to conform to other’s views of who you are in order to make your way in the world.
You learn to hedge, keep your voice private, and to doubt its value altogether.
It’s not that you don’t speak. You do. It’s that the voice you speak is the voice society wants you to speak.
It’s not the deepest, most true, most alive, most Light-filled voice of your feminine Soul.
I look forward to meeting you inside the Club!
