New Old Believers

It’s better if one doesn’t try to un-story any person who has suffered, for soul is the preeminent storyteller of all that has occurred. To silence a person’s most poignant stories is to silence the soul. Better to make safe time and place for such healing-speaking.
Please take the time to read this important essay by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, especially after this sad, sad day in American politics.

The Babushka Brigade: What old believers say about torture of human beings

Let everything in you that can sing, be sung; everything that can dance, be danced; everything that can heal, be healed; everything that can love, be loved in return.

Are you a new, old believer?
