    Before we can “build better men”- men who can establish meaningful connection and bring their creative gifts to the world, we will need to address the culture of cruelty in which men are formed.


    I just finished a Luminous Woman workshop at the Summer Dream Conference where we were discussing the joyous, self-expressive role of dancing among women in middle eastern cultures.
    I love the film Sabah particularly for that reason, the wonderful, sensual dancing of the women in the family.
