Thresholds of healing are unique & familiar environments that remind us "We are holy". They also help us access memories stored within. The amazing "I am" proud of myself parts, the lost parts, the put on a shelf parts, the disowned parts, the never opened parts and the completely new parts!
Holding space for people to grieve and witnessing vulnerability is heart opening. Finding safe space that invites you to engage your grief is rare in our culture. There is big grief coming up to be healed. Not just socially understood grief but dangerous grief, messy grief, complicated grief. The paths to healing are in us.

The Power of Community
"She wasn’t broken. She was made up of a thousand tiny little cracks. She was always trying to keep herself glued together. But it was hard, she felt too much. No matter what she did, her emotions seeped through, sometimes in drips, other times in floods, She felt everything, the heaviness of the clouds right before rain, the rush of the subway cars as they left the station, the feeling of goodbye as she watched someone walk away, wondering if it was the last time she would see them, the feeling of a kiss lingering on her cheek for hours. She felt the loneliness of the sun as it hung in the sky, shedding light on the day, without companion.
And she longed to give as much as the sun. If she could brighten someone’s day, bestow warmth were there was cold, make someone smile, give someone hope, then for a minute, an hour, maybe even a day, the cracks would fill with love and the pain would become only a voice, reminding her that her pain was important. She knew how fragile life was, how hard, and how precious.
She wanted to feel it all.” ― Jacqueline Simon Gunn
