There is a beautiful book written by Judith Duerk titled Circle of Stones: Woman's Journey to Herself where she focuses on the importance of how women long ago used to sit together face-to-face, fireside listening to one another's stories. Their relationships, shared with undivided attention while listening with compassion, were fused by a powerful experience of feeling understood and honored by one another. Duerk writes:
How might your life have been different if there had been a place for you...a place of women, where you were received and affirmed? A place where other women, perhaps somewhat older, had been affirmed before you, each in her time, affirmed as she struggled to become more truly herself.
A place where, after the fires were lighted, and the drumming, and the silence, there would be a hush of expectancy filling the entire chamber...a knowing that each woman there was leaving old conformity to find her self...a sense that all of womanhood stood on a threshold.
And if, during the hush, the other women, slighty older, had helped you to trust your own becoming...to trust it quietly and prayerfully to nurture it (17).
How might your life be different?
You live a fast-paced life juggling many roles and responsibilities and yet there is a need to slow down, be heard and have your feelings honored. They can't be shortened with a minimized text, tweet, or message or be validated with a like, heart, or thumbs-up through a screen. You need to be heard. Your feelings need to be validated, sorted out, reflected upon, and talked through with someone who can sit with you, give you undivided attention, and reflect back to you objectively. Having expressed what's on your heart you leave assured with clarity on how to journey forward.
