In Eastern traditions, especially Buddhism, the feminine essence lives at the heart of everything. Subtle, mystifying, intriguing, nurturing and pervasive, she is dynamic and beyond gender. This modern world is fast-paced, materialistic, and competitive. This causes fixation, stress, and exhaustion. Feminine aspects like flexibility, flow, and spontaneity need to be reactivated by both men and women so we may learn to live within this ever-flowing wisdom.
