This beautiful wise elder woman who lives in South Africa shares her bread, candle and tango wisdom with us on what it is to passionately and devotedly love the life within you. Expressing it without any reservations or doubt.
The question to place our attention on – “What is love?”
The simple answer? – To love the life within you.
Not something we have been taught as women in most of the cultures we have grown up in.
When I am communing with nature or moving my body within an improvisational wildly free dance I remember who I am, the passions that are uniquely mine, and the wholeness and artistry that I wish to share with the world.
An elder now myself I look back on the past and the parts of myself I seemingly “lost” when I sacrificed my own knowing.
As Meraal says in the video, no matter what age you are, there is always opportunity to pour those parts that have been carefully tucked inside back into our lives.
Celebrating with a deep sense of belonging, self acceptance and joy!
