The Phoenix Soul:
BRAVE (issue 54)
Phoenix, it's time to unleash your lion-heart.
What does bravery look like in your life? What's your personal definition, the one fluttering beneath your breastbone like a wild bird? What answer rises in your gut?
This is your truth. Your brave.
I know what you might be thinking: "But I'm not brave." In fact, many of our contributors in this issue said the same thing (even me!). But oh, friend, that's starting from the wrong perspective. We need to look inward at our own truth, rather than outward at another's expression. We are brave, each in our own way.
Kindred, it's time to honor your own everyday bravery. Simply to live with your heart and soul wide open, to embrace this aching healing grieving celebrating world -- and to love it all -- this, phoenix, is so brave.

The Phoenix Soul: Brave
It's time to allow trembling faith to sing above fear. It's time to raise our brave voices, even/especially when they shake. It's time to begin our gentle/bold revolution. We phoenix are most powerful and strong when we tap into our truest selves: our own brand of brave, no matter how different it may look from anyone else. We are needed in this world . . . exactly as we are.
Step into the circle, where we celebrate both our brave individuality and our identity as a soul-family. We honor our everyday acts of courage, tiny steps taken even as fear flutters under faith. And our leaps of power, when our lion-hearts roar strong and true. What do you need to be your bravest self? Find out with us in The Phoenix Soul: BRAVE.
