Yoni is a Sanskrit word for vagina which translates to “sacred space.” In a world where the female form is continually criticized, censored and controlled, radical self love is a form of revolution. This is what the Yoni represents to me. When we celebrate the beauty and mystery of the Yoni, we acknowledge the divine power within each of us.
I first heard the term “Yoni” in an Art History class when discussing Hinduism. It is a Sanskrit word for vagina which translates to “sacred space.” This idea of the woman’s body as inherently sacred really struck a chord with me, since it contrasts so much with how the female form is viewed in our society. Learning about this powerful symbol fundamentally changed the way I thought about my body and my femininity.
Growing up, I struggled with crippling insecurity. I continually criticized my body, and I saw my gender as something to be ashamed of (” I’m not like other girls,” “I like hanging out with guys, girls are too much drama”). My view of myself and other women was molded by society and I wasn’t even aware of it.
I embrace the symbol of the Yoni because I want to encourage women to stop being at war with each other and at war with themselves. When we are able to love ourselves unconditionally, we open ourselves to spiritual awakening. By celebrating the Yoni, we recognize the divinity within.
