The first step is to return to our bodies, not just with sexual freedom but with understanding and love.   We need to discover our own courage, strength, truth, beauty, love, imagination, intelligence, power and mystery.    Happily, we've been left stories and fairy tales to show us how to do this.

Fairy tales seem to be the bare bones of the primal archetypes of life.  Stories passed down through the ages help us get through the transitions in life.   One big transition that's been brewing for centuries is this women's journey from the Father's House to freedom.   There is an old story that tells the tale of a princess who fled the father's house and gained her freedom and deep wisdom through day-long toil and a strong dose of patience.   Freedom from oppression is never free!

The tale gives us clues to achieving our quest for a conscious feminine standpoint to base our purpose on.   The basic pattern is set.   How we fill it in is up to us.   The Grimm fairy tale is called Allerleirauh and the movie that fleshed out this archetypal pattern is Dirty Dancing.
