When I was 7 years old, I witnessed something magical.
Something so peaceful, yet so powerful and awe-inspiring that it set the path for my life.
I watched a woman birth a child.

Many others are calling bullshit too.
A shift in consciousness is happening. The tides are turning and women are stepping up.
But to do this we must
UNLEARN. UNTAME. UNLEASH.
We must relish in the capability of body, mind and spirit. We must ignite creativity and let loose with epic visions of greatness.
