Inner Pilgrimage (Part I)
”Within my body are all the sacred places of the world, and the most profound pilgrimage I can ever make is within my own body.”
Just as life speaks to us through the senses and nature, the body speaks to us through sensation and symptom. Learning to understand and appreciate the language of the body comes through a fine tuning of the inner ear and senses to hear the truth speaking from deep within. There is a certain kind of poetry expressed in symptoms- a distilled, clear and creative flow of felt experience, symbolism, and metaphor that encompasses more than words alone. It is the language of the soul speaking from ancient archetypal wisdom that can open us to a whole new world- one that is rich with its own mythology of meaning and support.
