"How might your life have been different, if, as a young woman, there had been a place for you, a place where you could o to be with women? A place where you could be received as you atrove to order your moments and days.
A place where you could learn a quiet centeredness . . . to help you ground yourself in daily patterns that would nurture you through their gentle rhythms . . . a place where, in the stillness at the endsing of a task, you could feel an ancient presence flowing out to sustain you . . . and you learned to receive and to sustain it in return.
How might your life have been different?"
--Judith Duerk, from Circle of Stones: Woman's Journey to Herself
