Great Mother, Creator, Spirit of Life
we give thanks for the gift of a woman’s body
that we are thereby linked to the moon, the tides,
the forces of regeneration and healing.
We honor you and ourselves this day,
with ritual and cleansing.
Let us praise and tenderly celebrate you:
these limbs, these breasts, these eyes,
this womb, this belly, this mind and this beating heart.
Blessed be the body, our home, our temple
our dearest friend and wisest teacher.
Let us listen deeply, quietly, lovingly to her.
Let us take good care of her; nurture and
protect her from stress and disease.
Let us elevate her to her rightful place
with mindfulness, pleasure and joy.
