“What can a transformative community actually look like? In my experience, it has been about including. It’s about honoring diversity. It’s about being aware of power differences. It’s about playing with art, with music, bringing in ritual, different kinds of wisdom. It’s about going beyond individual disciplines.”
– Marilyn Daniels, in Crone Wisdom
