“Learning how to practice encountering suffering outside of ourselves is the key to sustained action so we don’t blow out.”

“Our ancestors whisper this to us every night … this is a journey that we are on together.”

“We have created our own maps as if they are reality, when the actual reality we are living in has so much to teach us.”
