WILD WOMAN RITUAL PREPARATION

YES, we will have a ritual during the last session. Thank you for all your amazing input! Here's everything you need to do and to know:

Rewrite your abortion story. In this version, you are the heroine. You are writing your own heroine's journey. You may start the story wherever you feel inspired to begin, even many years before the abortion(s), and end the story as far after your abortion(s) as you feel inspired to do. But be sure, in the end, to tell us your tikkun olam. Heroine, how will you heal the world? Look through the eyes of your highest self, the one who sees you kicking motherfucking ass on this planet. Be ready to share 2 minutes of this story with the circle. Please do time yourself reading before you come to the group.  

Write your personal manifesto. Based on all that you have discovered about yourself and your experience, as well as your new toolkit, write your personal manifesto for revolutionizing your everyday life. For an example, check out pages 261 and 262 of May Cause Love.

List all that you want to bury and leave behind. For example: fears, feelings, unforgiving thoughts, false stories about yourself and your life, false stories about others, false stories about "the way things are," negative behavior patterns, dark beliefs, whatever you want. Bring it! Be specific!

1. Wear white and red to the ritual on Monday.

RED to symbolize blood, power, love, fire, sex, rage, desire, radiance, and action. 

WHITE to symbolize our collective inner goddess, who brings the red to fruition.

Feel free to go all out. Wigs, gowns, false eyelashes. Do you! This is your abortion ritual.

2. Bring to the ritual:

- A candle. Your Dolly candle if you wish! Or you can buy a plain white tall candle and tape a picture of your personal high priestess on the front, be it Mary Magdalene, Beyonce, or Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Someone who reminds you to call on your most powerful and peaceful self.

- Something sweet to taste. (Beets, for example.)

- Something bitter to taste. (Wasabi, for example.)

- Onion to taste.

- A fig to taste.

- Chocolate to taste.

- Your list of WHAT YOU ARE BURYING AND LEAVING BEHIND. (Choose a one-minute highlight reel. That's 60 seconds. Please time yourself before the ritual.

- Your HEROINE'S JOURNEY that ends with how you will heal the world. (Choose a two-minute highlight reel. That's 120 seconds. Please time yourself before the ritual.

- Your new MANIFESTO to read out loud. (Choose a minute-and-a-half highlight reel. That's 90 seconds. Please time yourself before the ritual.)

3. Please darken the room from which you are joining us.
