WORD WEAVERS

“We are all learning to heal, heal ourselves, heal our bodies, heal our common woman spirits. Healing begins in acute attention – attention to our needs and desires, attention to our manifestations. We heal b knowing our state of being,wether we are hot or cold, wet or dry, soothed or irritated, full or empty, sad or content, restless or energetic. We do not need to find cause for this state. By attending to ourselves we can ask ‘what do I need to feel whole, well?’ We will know the answer. We affirm we can be whole, can have health. We are each ultimately our own healers. – Nett Hart and Lee Lanning, 1987 Word-Weavers

“I am a woman taking care of myself.
I am a woman who begins the revolution in my own heart,
who purges from my life the injustices so I can see clearly.
I am a woman unafraid to proceed with what I now know
knowing as I proceed I will not learn what I could not learn without
I am a woman taking care of myself becoming lean but not hard, separate but not apart.
I am a woman who begins the revolution in my own heart.” – Nett Hart and Lee Lanning, 1987 Word-Weavers

“Health is a the result of living in harmony with yourself and your environment. Health is to be in sync with life: all the rhythms harmonizing… breath with body functions, body functions with life activities, and life activities in rhythm with the cycles of the earth.” – Margot Adair, 1984
