Stories As Healing

DSC01647“Although some use stories as entertainment alone, tales are, in their oldest sense a healing art; and the best, to my lights, are those who have lain with the story and found all its matching parts inside themselves and at depth.  In the best tellers I know, the stories grow out of their lives like roots grow a tree.  The stories have grown them, grown them into who they are.”

Clarissa Pinkola Estes
