Get bleepin angry (part 1/2)

I’m a huge advocate of accepting and having a dialogue with our emotions. At the core I believe the purpose of each emotion is to a) deliver a message and b) be experienced physically in the body.

How writing letters opens the door for time travel and healing

There are a multitude of rituals and exercises one can undergo in the quest for getting in touch and deepening the relationship with oneself. What I especially find fascinating is when a process allows for an  interaction between  seemingly “split” aspects of the persona.
