    Thank you so much Valarie!
    Happy to share that in french the word “midwife” is “sage femme”, which means “wise woman” 🙂 LOVE

    Amazing! She talks in poetry and it fills the soul. I live in New Zealand & our national response to the horror of the mosque shooting gives me hope for our morality & is echoed in Valerie’s talk. I’m so grateful for our country’s leadership through that & that we were lead & driven by love. Thank you for your inspirational talk!

    You have inspired me and heightened my commitment to love. I know it is the reason I am here and I celebrate all of us that are turning our hearts to love and our actions that flow out of this deep space. Even though I I am now at an age where it is easier to claim my wise woman, (68) I stand with deep knowing that a wise woman is in each one of us no matter our age. Thank you for being such an inspirational leader, storyteller and activist. I am so motivated at this moment to move forward with my expression of love which is The Lovist Project. We are all in this together!!

    Valarie, you are changing the world in many ways, in part by bringing new language, more feminist and divine language into being and doing. I took so many notes! Now I want to let what I heard simmer inside; you have planted many seeds in me, let’s see how they blossom. Thank you for your stories; I’ll be checking out your website soon. Thank you to the organizers of this summit also. I am experiencing wonder as I soak in the beauty of each presenter’s words.

    Oh Valerie? Thank you for your stories shared?? with us Sisters. You have so many qualities that would make you a perfect Cabinet member if Marianne Williamson wins in 2020?The Love Revolution meets The Politics of Love.?

    Love is an element of power. We can use it to shield. We can use it to slice away hate.

    Laboring as a metaphor for this cultural, societal transition is so resonant for me. Tapping into our deepest reserves to step into the world is right on. To labor on behalf of others is a new reframe for me. Thank you. Going through the process of birth, unmedicated, straight up as women have done for many centuries, sets my own neural network for stepping into difficult situations. What empowerment. Deep bow.
