"One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious..." Carl Jung

As I am reading:  HEALING INVISIBLE WOUNDS, paths to hope and recovery in a violent world by Richard Mollica, MD, I find myself deeply touched -- over and over --  and wishing this were required reading by?... whatever Authority others (who have not read this book) accept. This may read like a book review but "hold it" gently in gratitude that people like this man exist. 

 

An example of his thinking: beauty and nature are not adjuncts to healing but are essentials. Common sense, eh?  Richard Mollica speaks for all of us who share these values
