We are Daughters of Myth and Heirs of Dreams*

Life Prayer🫀

⛰ We remember the poly-poetic, biological, and ecological perspectives of who we are.
⛰ We breathe in deep relationship, every moment.
⛰ We are so much and have so much to remember and re-create, both internal and external myths.
⛰ We responsibly make room in our internal narratives to embrace the stories and dreams of the world, the old and the emerging.
⛰ We touch grief and trust the uncertainty.
⛰ We decentralize our presence as humans and remember listening, touching, and sensing.
⛰ We return to the here and now, the fabric of community heroes rather than isolated triumphant individuals.
⛰ We share the fertilization between mythology, psychology, and ecology.
⛰ We (re)find who we are at the thresholds.
⛰ Do you remember?

Title adapted from a sentence in the book “The Farthest Beach” by Ursula K. Le Guin
