4 Questions The Medicine Man Would Ask You…

4 Questions The Medicine Man Would Ask You…

In many shamanic societies, if you came to a shaman or medicine man complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions.

 

When did you stop dancing?

When did you stop singing?

When did you stop being enchanted by stories?

When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?

 

Where we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experienced the loss of soul.

Dancing, singing, storytelling, and silence are the four universal healing salves.
