“We have lived long in a world dominated by the role of the masculine consciousness – trenchant, linear, centered in acquisition … The divine feminine is that ocean of a ‘transforming power’ that can turn into gold the mixed alloy of humanity, it is time to come forward into the arena of the world’s life … it is only the woman who can link the new world with the old.”  –Aster Patel, Govering Board, Auroville, India

“We must reclaim ourselves and our relationship with the deep feminine.  .. First Nation Peoples have a way of life that is centered in the sacredness of life and the interconnectedness of it all.” -JYOTI, Ambassador the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, and Spiritual Director of the Center for Sacred Studies

“The world will be saved by the Western Women.”  -Dalai Lama, Vancouver Peace Summit 2009

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”- Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
