“When we think about how much support there really is in the world for all of us , we see that the natural elements can truly communicate this to us. Elements like the snow, the rain, the solstice sun, are all there to remind us that we are connected to all of that….we don’t let ourselves remember that, feel into that, or rest into that often enough.” ~ Paige Gilchrist
