In a world where Women’s rights have not been respected, the coexistence with nature will not succeed. Women are the human embodiment of the earth element. The embodiment of the source of life. In a system where life is structurally undervalued and now having this fact pushed to the extreme under the threat of the environmental catastrophe, I need to ground into myself to connect with the earth healing energy. To find the strength to resist, to learn from me, from nature and from the ancestors the way to build a world where the source of life is respected, protected and honoured.
