Deep within us all lies a sacred power. Its essence exists in the place of our journey, our story, our joys and sorrows, our life force. It is mystery. It is pure. It is the quiet whisper of wisdom. It is the silent presence of Spirit. It is the inside of the prayer, the contents of the bundle. For it is only in the place where courage meets fear that we can experience the gift of Hidden Medicine. (
