"you'll see themes here that are taken from the holy mountain, Singing Mountain", Zilda Zin says.
"The spiral represents many things", Zilda Zin says.
"a spiritual journey", Zilda Zin says.
"an inward journey", Zilda Zin says.
"the path of the womb too...", Zilda Zin says. "And the path of history, spiralling on... nearly repeating yet never the same"
"the crystals in the air represent the stars. You'll see that better in the holy tumulus itself", Zilda Zin says.
"water, fire, stone, air, plant, animal", Zilda Zin says.
Zilda Zin says, "we did not follow the full trail up here"
Zilda Zin says, "which spirals up round the mountain"
"following the life up", Zilda Zin says.
Zilda Zin says, "places where the young girls are first initiated"
Zilda Zin says, "where the warriors gather before the hunt to gain their honours"
Zilda Zin says, "where the young matrons give birth"
"and the older matrons recieve their title of Elder when they pass beyond that stage", Zilda Zin says.
Zilda Zin says, "Matron Day is celebrated sporadically throughout the galaxy now, but it orginated here"
"it is a great honour to give birth on the Holy Singing Mountain", Zilda Zin says.
"you may have noticed that the spiral carried on inside...", Zilda Zin says. "The Spiral of Life"
"Symbols of 3 are common too...", Zilda Zin says. "For 3 is a holy number... the 3 stages of life... Maid, Mother, Crone"
ZildaZin says, "Dathomiri culture was founded when a powerful woman came tothis prison planet, for so it has been for millenia"
"her name was Allya...", Zilda Zin says. "She found the convicts warring"
"almost all were men", Zilda Zin says.
Zilda Zin says, "she could not get them to cease"
Zilda Zin says, "so she gathered the women"
"taught them the ways of power....", Zilda Zin says. "Fore the stones and the trees and the creatures sing here"
Zilda Zin, "and the women could hear that..."
"Allya trained them...", Zilda Zin says.
"thank you all for coming ..", Zilda Zin says. "Not always a happy dayin these trying times.... But think of the Sprial of Life... and oneday you will see your own mothers again"
