“…If you came to a shaman or medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask you one of four questions: When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?… Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves.” — Angeles Arrien
Healing is the human condition.
Even when the black dog moves in,
know that you are not alone
and that healing happens not only from pills.
Be in silence.
