“You are the medicine, woman,
If you dare to embody your healing,
If you step out of the life you had.
The life they tell you that you must lead,
And step with shaking faith, onto another path,
A path of healing,
Defined by your boundaries and needs.
If you are prepared to step out of our sick culture
You will step into the healing place.”
~ Lucy H. Pearce, from “Medicine Woman: Reclaiming the Soul of Healing”
