Medicine Woman Manifesto

She walks close to her soul wherever she goes

Her beauty evokes an ancient remembrance

Of a time once forgotten yet so near to our hearts

Resonance is the call of her joy for she

Has returned to a place of deep connection

 

When she wants to find an answer or know which step to take

She goes inward first. To the deep knowing of her soul and trusts.

She doesn’t reach for the pill, the doctor’s scalpel

Or even the lofty opinions of friends

 

She seeks her council in the strength of the trees,

The sensual longing of the flowers and buzz of the bees

No cell phones here, just a direct transmission of nature’s heart to hers

 

This connection is the medicine,

The recipe for transformation is tuning in

Infused with her intention, She crafts her medicine,

 

It manifests in many ways.

In the food she prepares for her loved ones,

Her paintings, how she loves and the

Sway of her hips

 

She weaves it into the fabric of her soul

Her desires lay claim to her call to action and

She lives her life as a living work of art
