the abyss...

pulled in by loss, i'm now learning to look into that rift
with mindful attention...

the compulsion to linger there lessens
and the load of residual childhood terror lightens

gradually, very gradually,
in this alchemical process,
fear is being transfigured into freedom

some resources for the journey

pema chodron, the places that scare you
james hillman, a blue fire
thomas moore, care of the soul
john o'donohue, anam cara: wisdom from the celtic world
linda schierse leonard, the wounded woman

snow lion publications
sounds true: wisdom for the inner life

it is important to always remember to have tea

okakura kakuzo, the book of tea
