Ferocity is what brought me to Dakinis Whisper. It was Chö, which seemed such a ferocious practice when I first read about it in Khandro-la's aricle in Lion's Roar. It grabbed my heart. It still does. Perhaps it awakened and still awakens the ferocity within me.. Growing up afraid of any fierce-ness... in me, or anyone or anything else, I learned to avoid it outside of me and cover it up within me. I covered it with a blanket of 'gentle-ness'. I see that now as a fierce-gentleness, not an escape. And now I recognize ferocity as something that magnetizes me!
