Check out our reflections regarding International Women's Day and the importance of your being and serving in all areas.
In this month of March in which we honor Women, we could not leave out our reverence for our mother, the Earth! We want to make an appeal to each of you who make up our network to commit to re-establishing our relationship with Her, following examples that lead us along this path as the "Buen Vivir". Let one of our focuses be to serve Her, as She serves us, unconditionally.
There is still a lot to do in order for Women's Day to be a celebration of healthy femininity in the world. Until then, there is much to honor those who came before and sowed fertile soil so that we can live today with more integrity and autonomy.
And there is much to be thankful for simply existing and being part of this All that offers us infinite possibilities. That is why we bring the work of Brazilian artist Anna Gobel to celebrate being a woman in the world.
We invited the women of the Seva Corps team to share what seva means to them. It's a small mosaic, which illustrates a little bit of what motivates and inspires us around here, despite any challenge.
