You are the Magic

Last week, I was getting ready to teach our first online Woman Warrior workshop and I noticed I was super nervous.

I was nervous that it somehow wouldn't work -- that the "magic" of Woman Warrior wouldn't translate online.

So I got a pen and started listing everything that creates the auspicious magic that is Woman Warrior -- community, trauma-informed yoga, healing meditations, etc. -- and then I wrote down "students" and my pen stopped. 

I instantly realized that it's YOU, Woman Warrior students, that makes this work magic. 

As I see it, you are 
brave 
resilient 
dedicated
heart-centered
committed
compassionate
funny
smiley
wise
radical
and filled with love.

It takes deep courage to break cycles of abuse; to have our bodies violated, to have our hearts broken, and still be committed to truth and grace and growth.

I don't have to worry anymore because now I know that every time you are there, there is magic. 

So thank you for being you.
