We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.

The world seems to be divided into two kinds of people—those who divide everything into two, and those who don’t. Reading Nature, Culture and the Sacred is a step toward melting this false division into “feminine” and “masculine,” and allowing each of us to become fully human again and at last.
