“The critical issue is allowing yourself to know what you know. That takes an enormous amount of courage."
― Bessel A. van der Kolk
"Classical psychological theory tends to, by absolute omission, split the human psyche away from relationship to the land on which humans live, away from the knowledge of the cultural etiologies of malaise and unrest, and also to sever psyche from the politics and policies which shape the inner and outer lives of humans- as though that outer world were not just as surreal, not just as symbol-laden, not just as impacting and imposing upon one's soul-life as the inner din." -Clarissa Pinkola Estes
