Courage To Rise – Marcia Story


We look around and see suffering in the world. Much violence has been done to women’s bodies and spirits in the imbalance of power and repression of the sacred feminine. We rise to take action by empowering other women to be healers and yoga teachers in their own communities so they can awaken to their own value and power.

Mission Statement:
1. To host women’s empowerment circles with concrete tools of yoga and transformational breath work to heal emotional wounds, blocking our power and to reclaim the sacred feminine energy that lives in our bodies.

2. To train women teachers who in turn form and lead circles in their own communities and around the world.

3. To create awareness and advocacy around women’s issues through the story telling of the documentary: Shakti.

4. To connect communities with access to more resources to areas where suffering is more prevalent.
