What resonance! For me, the costs have not been so extreme; however I'm feeling the burden of trying to run a business selling my books (8 now, one out of print), running a psychotherapy practice, offering service through my spiritual community, and much more. With the seeds of a new creative project thrusting up, sprouting away and demanding attention, I realised that 'something's gotta give.'
Joan Anderson ended up travelling to the Scottish Isle of Iona. My journey has been less dramatic; just an hour's drive from the city. And here I'm finding the pathway back home to myself. I draw a mandala to harness the yearning.
