“For me the highest plane of creativity is found in one’s practice, and Julie offers the reader and writer a real means to follow through on one’s creative and spiritual intentions. The practices are straightforward and gratifying; the pilgrimage itself a worthwhile, even required engagement for the spiritual hero.” –Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art and The Legend of Bagger Vance
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. –MAX PLANCK, NOBEL PRIZE–WINNING PHYSICIST, CONSIDERED THE FATHER OF QUANTUM PHYSICS
“This Always Works: Bringing in the Third Thing or the Third Place Rightly used, a third thing functions a bit like the old Rorschach inkblot test, evoking from us whatever the soul wants us to attend to. Mediated by a good metaphor, the soul is more likely than usual to have something to say. But the fact will count for nothing if we fail to recognize that the soul is speaking or fail to pay attention to what it says.” PARKER J. PALMER, A HIDDEN WHOLENESS
