Happy women's day dear yoginis, mothers, daughters, wives, Goddesses! 
It was so nice to see so many beautiful posts honoring women on social media today. Posted both by women and by men. 
Yes, it is great to have a day to celebrate women, but the truth is women (and men) should be honored every day. And that is often not the case. It is still a man's world and there is still so much inequality. Maybe today should be a day that remind us of that fact and we should not forget that there is still much to be done for woman's rights. 
We should all work together towards equality and freedom for all. 

Below are some of my favorite words by some truly amazing, inspiring women. 

Love AllWays,

“In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: "When did you stop dancing?
