“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.” -Dalai Lama
This month leading up to International Women’s Day on March 8th, I’m sharing a series of videos on The Heart of Feminine Leadership.
Last week I introduced this potent topic and shared some thoughts on what leadership from the heart means to me. What is it? Why is it needed now more than ever? And what is YOUR role to play? You can find that first video in the series here.
In this week’s video, I’m going to talk about the power of Fierce Compassion, and why this is such an important quality of the heart in our feminine leadership.
Often the qualities of the feminine are said to be soft compared to the qualities of the masculine. Women tend to be seen as nurturing, caring, communicative, tender, and emotional. Men have these qualities of course as well, but generally speaking... these are qualities attributed to the overall more nurturing nature of the feminine
But one of the things I have experienced as a woman myself, and after leading women’s circles and programs for over 17 years now, is that we are also incredibly FIERCE.
In this video below, I suggest it is in fact our superpower is to be both tender AND fierce. Compassionate AND empowered. Sensitive AND strong. But the truth is, WE first have to trust in our feminine qualities, and then guard them fiercely with all our hearts.
Because when women stand confidently in our tenderness, and advocate for the qualities of the heart, we embody fierce love and compassion for ourselves and others. We model a new way of being, a model of feminine leadership from the heart, that is vitally needed in our world right now.
I hope you enjoy this week’s video… and I hope you, too, come to fully trust in your sensitivity, your tenderness, and your fiercely compassionate heart.
