Making Maps, Seeing the Sights

I see how I’m treading over much of the same ground, that I am “inventing wheels.” But…I think I need to do that. Much of my work has involved psychic therapy… Much of it has been exploratory, a process of acclimatization, and practical…I can’t help but see the patriarchal threads throughout many of [these other systems], or the racist threads elsewhere, or the ideologically-driven threads still elsewhere. And in those senses, my resistance to those other systems has been political as I choose how I wish to make and shape myself while working to open myself to other beings (humans and otherwise), to the Otherworlds, to the world, to everything while remaining in authentic contact with the deeper parts of myself. … Continue reading…Making Maps, Seeing the Sights
