The Power of Love

Posted by Nicki Peasley Share Your Voice


On Friday night, our Labyrinth girls gathered for an evening of reconnection and reflection.  And I am still spinning with the wisdom that surfaced in our circle!

We dove right in to an exploration of  “who we be” as 7th graders and how we can love ourselves, each other, and the world better. 

After viewing a documentary that offered a scientific lens on love, we talked about the human experience, our connection to each other, and our responsibility to be the change we want to see in the world.  To be leaders. 

We were inspired by the Dalai Lama’s prediction that western women will change the world.  And how the most important meditation of our time is critical thinking followed by action.   How can my unique gifts be of use? 

From this call to action, the girls created vision boards of who they are and how they can contribute to building a better world.

We closed with individual appreciations that gave the girls the opportunity to deeply see and be seen. And finally, we each chose a healing rune (or allowed it to choose us)—and asked the question, “What does this part of the human experience have to teach me?”  

And of course, we danced... the ultimate means of connection and celebration of  self, other, and world!
