Mammae, the nourishing principle

Mammae, nipples of fine taste, bring the awareness back to both man and woman, that their sensitive nipples have multiple functions and bring dimensions of peace to the heart.
The nipples and breasts are specific to the refine sensors of well-being and peace, connected with the heart, the timekeeper of the permission to live on earth.


Eternal desire
for a moment of peace,
open the Mammae me deep
in the mere of love

From afar nipples  call me,
they tell the tales of the universe
They nurse wellbeing
and bring satisfaction

Areola fountain spray
star blue mothers milk
leads me to my origin,
the entry to the galaxy

The world in me dies

I immerse in silence,
taste the firmament

Heaven appears in magic

Nipples still the desire
in a bed of value
A warm bosom fulfills
my feelings of belonging

Mamma and Mammae
The fine magic of all days
Ancestor temple of unity
hear her whisper Anneke 2010

Suzan van der Voort sings the song Abide

Mysteries of the bosom. Breasts are peace-bringing.
Magic of heart, eyes, and nipples. Breastfeeding and the attachment proposition of oxytocin.

What do nipples mean to the man? What do breasts mean to a woman? The breasts and nipples of men and women are sensitive and sensual. Breasts are the front chamber of the heart. We can be disarming, if we bear our nipples and bosom in peace. The refinement and peace that nipples radiate are a sight to behold. If humans regularly allow themselves to enjoy this refinement and the peace the nipples can radiate, it makes a significant difference in cardiovascular disease. Knowing more?

Anneke Wittermans dances and shows how the bosom is the antechamber of the heart. A lust and must for men and women to have body awareness. Breasts are not a guilty pleasure but a sacred place of refinement.

Mammae, the nourishing principle

In 2010, after hearing that she was due to have breast surgery, my friend asked me to recapture all my knowledge about the breast, nipples, and bosom. She wanted to carry the energetic meaning even after the operation, the memories of the dance can contribute to that. Together we have developed existing and new dances to remember the meaning and also the natural radiation of the bosom.

My first images which captured the value of womanhood are in 1976 the Figurines of Çatal Höyük and Hacilar, where the women hold one or two hands on the bosom. I saw these figurines in the Ankara Museum and they move me into body awareness and the ambition to start a school in dancing.

Question: what is the meaning of breast for you?

The nipple is the court of the foremothers

It is a challenge to live and move in my physical body. It is an even greater journey of discovery to identify with the energetic world in and around me.

We are born without instructions for use and live in a body with countless functions and possibilities. We learn by trial and error to use, handle, and incorporate a small part of this ability.
Not everyone feels at home or happy in the earthly body. While super athletes discover the finest controls, there are others who identify with the body with much more effort. They also discover much less control or can’t count on it as part of their ability.

A new age, new millennia, and other abilities are waiting for us to discover. Just as the discoveries of asteroids they dwell unseen to the naked eye in the world beyond Saturn. They introduce us to other abilities which are ever-present in the blueprint of humanity. It begs us to believe that new abilities are ripe for us to add to our arsenal. So are the breast, they can radiate peace into the world.
