Meg says one of her most lasting memories of India is from the women's group. A woman in a red sari suddenly stood and danced, and everyone else in the group began clapping along. "She was so free in this moment and so beautifully expressive," Meg says. "She took her veil off and she leaned in and her face was straining and so full of gratitude and love. And she said, 'I have nothing. I work in the fields every day. I have nothing, but I love this life. There is so much color.'"
Meg says she could feel how this woman's openness was a direct result of the freedom of the group. "This idea of female community is so powerful," Meg says. "Women in isolation are divided and conquered, [but] when women are together it is really one of the most powerful things on this planet."
