Took a class this past weekend with Sobonfu. Releasing, Cleansing, Embracing.....her presence and words and ritual have helped rebirth me. In writing the paper for this weekend class, I'm reading her Falling Out of Grace. She writes:
“I have found in my work, for example, that where a certain, narrow kind of Christianity has been instilled, people accept that they have been born evil. This view infiltrates the way people look at each other. ‘We are basically evil.’ The battle against our nature never ends. This belief automatically limits a person’s abilities to come back into grace. It’s as if one’s wings have been clipped before she can fly."
So true I think.
