In most indigenous cultures, if you come to a healer or medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they ask from one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?
Have you stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence, the loss of contact with your soul? Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are four universal healing salves.
