Introducing myself and my journal: Way of the Heart, Wisdom of the Soul

About Me:
I was a wounded soul when I started work in WomanHealth Philippines. And this became a journey to my healing, transformation and empowerment. To understand more about women issues and rights, I took up Women and Development at University of the Philippines where I was encouraged by my professors to follow my interests on women healers and spirituality. Around this time, I also joined Kalayaan, a feminist organization. A new life unfolded for me with the women rights movement. I have always been interested in the wisdom of women healers and feminist spirituality. I found my kindred spirits in the women's movement. Starting initially as full moon gatherings and meditations, we formed a circle of women and call ourselves the Moonsisters. In our circle we shared our stories, put our worries and concerns in the center of the circle and send each other positive thoughts and healing energies. I love our Moonsisters' gathering as we also have our share of laughter, singing and dancing. Such Creative force!
Then on September 9, 1999 (9.9.99) we formed Yamang-Pagkalinga, a group of light-workers : women pastors and activists, academics and community development workers. We believed that deep inside us is our gift of nurturing and healing and this gift that Yamang-Pagkalinga intends to share to the larger community specially the disadvantaged and marginalized women and children and the elderly.
Working with the communities has been my life path and one that makes my life a beautiful tapestry enriched by the lessons and joys of life!
Now, living in the Land of the Long White Cloud - Aotearoa (New Zealand), my soul is nurtured by soothing sounds of the waves, bird songs, beautiful flowers, the sea, the clouds, the bush. I make the most of this blessing to capture the beauty in my photography and occasional creative journals and art works. Being a migrant, I got involved in issues of cultural identity and cultural well-being. I am currently active as board member/officer in some charitable organizations and in the human rights network, participating on issues about migrant women and the elderly.

My Passions:
Empowering people through creative arts, music and spirituality

My Challenges:
I am the Change that I dream for the world around me

My Vision for the Future:
Creating sustainable livelihood for marginalized communities

My Areas of Expertise:
Empowering communities through creative workshops, financial analysis and accounting

Hello from World Pulse. You

Hello from World Pulse.

You have reached out to World Pulse, and we are grateful for your presence.

I act as a volunteer World Pulse welcomer for new WP members and listener for other journal entries. This is some of the most exciting and rewarding work I've ever done. Through this effort, I have become a world volunteer.

I am wondering whether you have found any World Pulse efforts that really stir you to action. Our searchable site has so many examples of females empowering each other through education and encouragement, that there is certain to have inspiration for all.

We'd love to hear from you again.
