Tales of the Prophetess
By Ina Puri

She lives in the green poking through snow, she lives in the rustling stalks of dying autumn corn, she lives where the dead come to be kissed and the living send their prayers. She lives in the place where language is made. She lives on poetry and percussion singing....she is the moment just before inspiration bursts upon us. She lives in a faraway place which breaks through to our world.” [Clarissa Pinkola Estes; Wild Women]

In her restless journeys across the globe, Rini Dhumal has constantly sought to reaffirm and reiterate the one thought she believed deeply in. She had discovered early—was it in Paris, Traipsing by the Seine on a misty spring morning—that the feminine psyche was often a matter of shared sensitivities, no mater which world she physically inhabited. Years later, the inveterate traveller, journeyed into lands she had not seen before and everywhere she went she drew strangers close to her, communicating to them her genuine desire to learn a little more from them of their lives, as mothers, daughters and partners. Some were shy and desisted, inhibited through years of silence maybe? Others laughed and opened their hearts, sharing intimacies one can often only share with a stranger from another world.
