Thesis Statement

This recording is entitled "She is" followed by my favorite punctuation mark, the ellipsis - three little dots that open up a world of possibilities. My hope is that this recording will inspire and encourage you to explore these possibilities joyfully. Perhaps the greater scope of the recording is captured in its subtitle, "A Celebration of the Feminine Spirit." The Feminine Spirit, in this context refers to all of the attributes of character - both tangible and ineffable - that are generally associated with the feminine gender. This list would include such virtues as compassion, kindness, and sensitivity. It would include ethereal qualities such as intuition, mystery, and grace. It encompasses roles such as caregiver, teacher, and mother. It is my opinion that it is these very qualities, and others like them that possess the power to heal an ailing civilization. I wonder why these characteristics are so often hidden and in many cases even ridiculed in our society? I also wonder why the persons most naturally blessed with these qualities - women - have been oppressed throughout the ages. But this recording is not about feminism. Though it definitely moves to empower women, it is not about righting past wrongs or making up for lost time. Too often, such ventures, with goals of liberation, actually place the maltreated parties in the role of victim. Victims, by definition owe their plight to external forces and therefore fall dependant upon external forces for their salvation. My dream lifts each of us from the role of victim to that of victor. The feminine spirit, as a gift from God, promises a birth right to a power that can transcend victimization. Victors one and all, we are called home to a haven that we have carried with us all along. I hope this recording will rise above the constant tug-of-war brought about by our favorite “-isms” and simply amplify several precious gifts of the spirit and make it known to one and all, woman and man, that each of us is capable of honoring, receiving, and at last using these gifts. The empowerment I wish to employ is an inner power, and I hope to encourage the ability to share that power openly and freely. A world of endless possibilities exists for all of humankind. I - for one - see no reason why anyone should be excluded.
