Every woman can begin to heal her sister wounds and journey along the path to fully embody being the Love of her Life. She who chooses to explore the realms of possibilities shall embark on her life path illuminated with hope and wonder. Whatever it was that occurred to spark her interest to look within herself, once triggered cannot be dismissed, it will continue to bubble within her until, alas, she begins to listen to her heart and dances with life embracing her wholeness. For she who heals her sister wounds will be the spark that helps heal all her women ancestors that came before her, the women whose lives she touches in this embodiment and all the women that will come after she has transcended beyond the veil. - Diana Benvenuti
As the “Queen” archetype Diana wants to make a difference that creates a big impact and changes the world within her local community in Asheville, North Carolina and on a global scale. That is why she joined Sistership Circle and became a facilitator. Her belief is that if women can gather together in a consecrated space, magic can happen. Women can learn to trust one another, share from their heart without fear of judgement or biases therefore drawing in closeness and bridging differences that leads to healing the sister wound. As women hold loving, supportive energy for one another in circle gatherings we transform our lives and learn to trust ourselves and one another expanding self and sister love and appreciation. The potential for healing is powerful, empowering and without limits.
