    I remember coming across a similar way of talking about recovery when reading about Carl Jung, and also, psychosynthesis. For sure, finding a way to ‘tell the story’ when it comes to recovery can really help us make sense of our place in the world. Like a compass. It also gives us a degree of ownership, maybe.

      Oh – nice! I am always so delighted to find or hear of similar wisdom from different sources – it makes me feel like the concepts that resonate really are even more universal than we may think. Thanks for sharing and reading!
