Voices of Women with Host Kris Steinnes: Vajra Ma, The Fourth Wave of Feminism: Embodied Spirituality Giving Rise to New Politics, a Key to Planetary Peace.

"More than a grassroots revolution--a womb-roots Evolution" Some say a fusion of spiritual and political values are generating a Fourth Wave of Feminism. Vajra Ma maintains that spirituality trumps politics, that the spiritual values of a culture determines its politics as well as its family structure, laws, institutions and specifically how women, children and the Earth are treated. Vajra Ma shows that humanity's original spirituality emerged from the female body, womb, menses and ecstatic union with the Earth and Cosmos. She maintains that the real impetus of The Fourth Wave of Feminism is fully embodied spirituality and this embodied spirituality has the potential to forge global solidarity amongst women, to bridge ethnic divisions and divisions between so-called First and Third Worlds, to establish a bridge that not only includes but celebrates cultural, religious and political diversity. This is a bridge and solidarity we need in order to restore sanity and justice to the world.

"Over decades of teaching embodied spirituality, my experience has shown that direct bodily experience unifies women across racial, cultural, political and sexual divisions. It does this without erasing or negating the diversity of perspectives." Vajra Ma
