Moxy Moments


What is a Moxy moment?  A Moxy Moment is a self-defining moment.  That moment when you say "Yes" to whatever you want to do or accomplish and just do it.  The Moxy Women profiled on this website have each found many "Moxy Moments" in their lives and discovered their courage and bravery to move forward into unknown horizons.  In the 2009 Moxy Conference several of the women were interviewed behind the scenes and will be sharing their individual Moxy Moments with you in this series.  Watch, Listen and be Moxy!


Moxy Moments from the Moxy Conference 2009!

Moxy Women
Written by Dominique De Laet, 10/04/09

What have we brought our own life to if we don’t acknowledge the voices of powerful women, who as a unity call themselves the “Moxy Women”. Their desire for enlightenment through the written word but also through the amazing clarity of a drum within a drum within a silence, where all the voices are held to be reignited over and over again, is bringing forth a reality motioned by a planetary evolutionary spiral. 

These women of the Earth, these daughters of the Sky and these girls of the Ultimate possibilities of a new Reality, resign in all of us as a unit. As we all convene to a thundering collision of our own inner wisdom we leave the many worlds behind in which we were chained, oppressed and also silenced as a way to make us be more reliable and trustworthy. Who are we calling for our freedom and the amazing depth of a more meaningful yet transcendental life? We are the ones who decide where this new birthed energy will be directed to, opening up a trail of the ultimate and beatific sense of realizing our full potential within the spiral of revolutionary progress. As we move forward into the intricate and yet oh so clear disposition of our own strength, dedication and courage we are all aligned to what is the most sacred within ourselves. We can deduce and bring about a new scenery that will not only be colored by a new Being but also transformed by our delicate words, grandiose bodies and our piercing wisdom.

What in us pulls us up to reach for the “Moxy Women” resonance? What is that vibration that we all are so fond of and are finding in our steps towards a world that breaches many borders. This subtle current of electricity translates itself into the writing of a renewed Declaration of Independence. What will you write down? How will you intertwine your mission within the world we live in now? Where is the fire within you that is becoming aware of its own warmth, depth and delicate yet profound fragrance?  As we allow ourselves to perceive our own being and potential clearly we will keep on inviting the sounds of the “Moxy Women” whose echoes are here to stay.

More Moxy Moments- Below are samples of just a few of the emails received after the event: 

  • "I don't even know where to begin to tell you how blessed I feel to have walked with you all on this part of our journey - from Jean's vision & conception of the Moxy event... to working with you all at rehearsals.... and ending Saturday with a most memorable day.  I was inspired by each speaker - every one had a message just for me, and just when I thought I couldn't cry anymore, I  would cry again at the next thought, note of music, beat of a drum..... I laughed, I cried, I was challenged, I was inspired. Thank you Jean, for sharing your sister with us, your vision of empowerment, your grace and quiet strength, and most of all - your love."  Blessings always, Au-Drey
  • "The event you produced was one of true heart, infinite compassion and passion, served so many people on so many levels, and will influence lives for a long while. What took place is the foundation of a movement and connection of linking that is far bigger than any of us can yet see.... I do hope that you know and experienced how deeply you are loved and respected by many, many people. The excitement and thrill of everyone on that stage, to be there, and be part of this opening was heavy in the air all day long. Having experienced this in person in this venue was moving, powerful, exhilirating and inspiring. It was an honor and pleasure to be part of it in my own small way." With gratitude, Connor S.
  • "It was my honor to support you and be a part of such an incredible event.  We have created a shift in the universe by our presence and participation in the event.  Numbers will grow as we spread the energy and is the promise we all live by. All your efforts will be rewarded Jean, no love and service goes without its rewards of abundance and joy! " Zeynep T.
  • "I just wanted to write and say thank you again, what a wonderful experience yesterday was for all of us. I was so blessed to be surrounded by so many Moxy women and to play and sing on the Mahaffey stage! I felt such a community of strong women, and the drumming together at the end was so powerful. We don’t often get to celebrate ourselves like that...to be strong women and nothing more...so many beautiful people were there it was phenomenal! I just offer my heartfelt love and thanks and gratitude for the experience, thank you so much for including me! I’ve always been Moxy and didn’t even know it :) What a ride!"  Love and Blessings,  Ami B

It is amazing what a group of focused women can accomplish!  Jean, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt you are on the right path.  This weekend I saw a diverse and dynamic group of women working together to create something positive and beautiful.  If there was anything "ego driven", I did not see it. I was so impressed with how well everyone worked together.  There truly was a higher force at work.  So.... what's the next project going to be?  Melanie P
