Listen to The Red Key Conversation: Entering Dangerous Territory with Shiloh Sophia, Stella Mac and Jenafer Joy from The Cosmic Cowgirls
We are a tribe of truth tellers.
Movers and shakers
of things that need moving
and shaking. Like hips.
And old ideas that need
We are a gathering of women who
straddle the worlds.
We have one bare foot on the earth
(toenails painted sparkly of course)
and one cowgirl boot in the marketplace of life.
With our heads in the stars for big dreaming
and our arms outstretched
to embrace as much aliveness as we can.
We have our hearts on our sleeves, both of them.
Whether we be sinners or saints
or wear halos or horns there is
one thing you have to admit about us….
We think for ourselves.
There is never a something better
than the you that is you.
Here, where the Cosmic Cowgirls
reign, we agree:
Be the most you that you can be.
Whoever that is for you – and
we, the sisterhood of the cosmos,
will hold your hand
as you molt on the dance floor of life.
Then we will clean up the first layer of
your skins and feathers for you
and most likely we will hoot and holler
for you — or meditate quietly — or
beat the drum. You choose your own
rites of passage around here.
We believe this truth to be self evident:
That the pursuit of identity
is essential to the quality of our aliveness.
That each woman can transform
her life into a legend.
That stories are made for telling
around the campfire,
but legends are meant to be lived.
And sisterhoods are meant to
be your bridge when you don’t know
the way over the troubled water of
the lies you have been told
and tell yourself still.
Legends are not hatched. They
are concocted. Brewed. Stitched.
Woven together with time, friendship
red thread and spit, blood and tears.
