Sample text

A leaf touching the ground in the forest deep within your being. You rise from the ground, thanking the leaf for transporting you so gently. Everything breathes in the forest. Savor the breath of life flowing in and around you. Inhale deeply as the breath rises from the rich earth beneath you. Release the breath into the cool and moist air around you. Your attention moves upward and you notice the trees reaching arm in arm for the sky. You become a tree. Your feet grow roots extending deep into the ground.

Travel again through the years of your life. This time, pay special attention to the delightful years as you pass through them. If you are moved, draw the joyful experiences, write about the comfortable exchanges, or dance the bright moments. When you are finished, celebrate them by adding a celebratory color to your drawing, symbol to your writing, or movement to your dance.  There is no blemish.  I celebrate the delightful years and joyful experiences.  The comfortable exchanges and bright moments.

As we matured and grew out of the "cute stage," our parents became uncomfortable with our Page 45 developing bodies and most touching abruptly stopped. We created stories to make sense of this withdrawal of affection. We became convinced something was wrong with our bodiesthat our growing breasts, public hair, and the genital sensations we were experiencing made us untouchable to our parents. For some of us, the incestuous behavior of a parent or relative compounded this growing discomfort. In adolescence, the vagina replaces the clitoris as the focus of sexual pleasure in a culture that reduces sexuality to genital intercourse defined by the needs and desires of men.
