"I have come to the conclusion that human beings are born with an innate capacity to triumph over trauma. I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening - a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation. I have little doubt that as individuals, families, communities, and even nations, we have the capacity to learn how to heal and prevent much of the damage done by trauma. In so doing, we will significantly increase our ability to achieve both our individual and collective dreams."

"It is only from the inmost silences of the heart that we know the world for what it is, and ourselves for what the world has made us."

"This work never ends, but as so many people have taught me along my journey, our wounds can yield new wisdom, release hidden sparks of light, and open up unexpected paths to the future. I have seen it with my own eyes."
