She Rises: When Wild Women Find Each Other and Form a Pack

Mago Circle Muslim Reformers

Home has never been where I live. Home has been people, ideas and communities. I’ve found pieces of home here and there – a dive boxing gym run by a Vietnam War veteran, the eternal blue sky of Mongolian ancestors, and
The Mago Circle.

SHE RISESĀ is a project I’ve collaborated on this year that talks about the sacred feminine – a far divergence from how women are seen and treated under Islamist views. How powerful would Muslim women be if we were raised under the idea of a sacred feminine? I truly feel that the role of women like myself is to help lift up other women who aren’t there yet due to centuries of social and religious conditioning.

I’m so grateful to have found this community of inspired women, and to be able to contribute my short autobio for Volume II of She Rises, titled “When I was 5 I wanted to be a witch. When I was 35 I knew what that meant.” 

The She Rises series (Volume 1 and Volume 2), along with Women Who Run with Wolves. These are ideas and communities I wish I had grown up in. It’s bigger than religion, much bigger.
