"I see a finely wrought chain of tempered silver,
delicate yet strong, stretching back through time,
reaching deep into the earth..
A chain of women, each listening to each,
being present to her as she waits for her self to be born,
for her feeling values to come to form and to birth.
Woman after woman after woman,
being present, as each finds her voice."
-Judith Durek, A Circle of Stones: Woman's Journey to Herself
