In traveling to Crete, we seek to connect to ancient women, to a time
and place where women were at home in their bodies, honored and
revered, subordinate to none. We seek knowledge of a time when women
and men came together freely without specters of domination and
control, self-loathing and shame, that have marred the relation
of the sexes for thousands of years. We have found that the ancient
stones speak. Descending into caves we feel grounded in Mother Earth
and in the sure knowledge of the power of our female bodies. We
seek to heal the wounds of patriarchy, violence, and war. We hope
to participate in the creation of ecologically balanced, peaceful
cultures in which every woman and man, every creature and every
living thing is respected and revered for its unique contribution
to the web of life.
