I love this quotation from Abram (phenomenological philosopher and ecologist):
“Our spontaneous experience of the world, charged with subjective, emotional, and intuitive content, remains the vital and dark ground of all our objectivity.”
The Spell of the Sensuous by David Abram, 1996, pp.33-4
I love this quote from Nick Cave, The Red Hand Files - See the full blog at: https://www.theredhandfiles.com/what-can-you-tell-me-about-love/
"to resist love and inoculate yourself against heartbreak is to reject life itself, for to love is your primary human function. It is your duty to love in whatever way you can, and to move boldly into that love — deeply, dangerously and recklessly — and restore the world with your awe and wonder. This world is in urgent need — desperate, crucial need — and is crying out for love, your love. It cannot survive without it."
As we all continue to navigate the personal and social effects of Covid-19, I am struck by the enormity of what we are facing globally. The toll and fall-out from the pandemic will probably linger for many decades to come. And it touches us at a local level when considering our everyday psychotherapy practice. Many challenges - ethical, emotional and practical are revealed.
