HEALING AND INTEGRATION
As a natural complement to growth and transformation, it is vital that our spiritual practice include a dimension of healing and integration. Even if we’re coming from a highly developed vantage point, beyond exclusive identification with the body, personality, thought or emotion, we still need to do the work of integrating our own experience. Pain and trauma, especially at the physical level, are aspects of our experience that we can move into with greater love, care and courage as the spiritual path unfolds. If we focus on only awakening without healing, we become like a radiant beam of light shining through a broken stained glass window.
