"...what if we were to imagine for a moment that the body informs the soul ...suppose as in the fairytales of shape changers, the body is a teacher, a mentor, a certified guide? Are we strong enough to refute the party line and listen deeply, listen true to our body as a powerful and Holy Being?"

- Clarissa Pinkola Estes
