Happy February Digital Sisters!
This month, Digital Sisterhood Network (DSN) is celebrating the theme, “Tapping into the Magic of Your Heart.” Click here and listen to DSN founder Ananda Leeke introduce the theme and share her poem, “Loving Me” (published in her book, That Which Awakens Me: A Creative Woman’s Poetic Memoir of Self-Discovery).
The podcast also includes a breathing exercise that is intended to help you relax, become still, and reconnect with your heart. What does tapping into the magic of your heart mean to you?
Today, we would like to introduce you to Enchantista, one of the Digital Sisterhood Leadership archetypes. An Enchantista is a woman who taps into the magic of her spirit as she focuses her energy, opens her heart, trusts her intuition, embraces her fears, and shares her gifts in service to others. Click here to listen to a short podcast that explores the meaning of an Enchantista. During Digital Sisterhood Month 2012 and 2013, the women listed below were named Enchantista Digital Sisters of the Year. Take a few minutes to learn about them. They are great Enchantista virtual mentors.
