“Once, I ran from difficult feelings. Now, they are my advisors, confidants, friends,
and they all have a home in me, and they all belong and have dignity.
I am sensitive, soft, fragile, my arms wrapped around all my inner children.
And in my sensitivity, power.
In my fragility, an unshakeable Presence.
In the depths of my wounds, in what I had named “darkness”, I found a blazing Light that guides me now in battle.
I became a warrior when I turned towards myself.
And started listening.”
– Jeff Foster, “How I became a Warrior”
