Hindu tradition and American expression lead to innovative community service
Honor the Deities, Folk Heroes, Activists, Writers, Artists, Innovators, Politicians…..the women…who inspire YOU.
Have your friends over: share the profound and “silly” female bonding rituals of your heritage and youth - oil your hair, do henna, paint your nails.
Forgive a friend who wronged you.
Light your altar and chant the ancient prayers, then light a candle and relax.
Invoke the values of Ashtanga Yoga. Do Yoga.
Go out for the evening.
Arrange events: be inspired by or inspire others with your shakti stories.
Start a journal, a blog, share your stories.
Get moving: go for a walk, learn to ride a horse, take up a martial art,
Give yourself permission to create something.
Sign up for a class: make pottery; learn to play music, knit a scarf
Write a letter........... Call your sister, friend, mother.
Revive an old love: sing, dance, paint.
Help other women.
