It’s no surprise that, for many women, the idea of honoring their breasts is unfamiliar. But why? What sorts of dialogue and inquiry can inspire women to connect fully with their bodies and their health? This quote from Susan Weed provokes this line of thinking in a powerful way:
“Has anyone ever told you that your breasts are holy and sacred and moving with the energy of life? Has anyone ever told you that your breasts are a source of power? Has anyone ever given you permission to love your breasts, touch your breasts, adore your breasts? Has anyone encouraged you to honor your breasts and all women’s breasts as life, as the support of life?”
