Black Madonna for President - Warrior Women

Ingrid Firmhofer

2017 - Ongoing

At present one hears a lot about the sacred femininity. It is true that in this system we should only ever function and that we have suppressed our feminine values. Many of us have to feel sensuality, vulnerability, spirituality, intuition again in our womb. In women's circles this is often spoken of only. But under no circumstances should we make the mistake of reducing ourselves to these so-called "female" values (Yin). We need our “male” values (Yang) because we don´t need something like the burning of witches happen again. Let's not be reduced to one archetype and let´s not forget the warrior who is in all of us. This series is part of my project Black Madonna for President ( www.blackmadonnaforpresident.com) with which I want to encourage women to embody and celebrate both their male and female values as well as their sexuality.

  • VULNERABILITY AND CONNECTEDNESS
    The deep pain of being separated overwhelms me, the old tendency to retreat is there and new is the courage to show myself with it: tears flow on the lap of the women - peace and connectedness are the gift. The hand, the grass, the sun caress me. (Christina Diana)

  • CARING

    The only “female” value (YIN) which is not shamed is caring. But even public breast feeding is frowned upon in some countries, such as the USA.
