Finally, I believe that individual and systemic change requires us to engage, to some significant degree, our challenges and wounds, especially those which persist from generation to generation. Without skillful intervention, these shadow parts and collective traumas adversely - sometimes even perversely - shape our behavioral and institutional patterns, extending this impact to our intimate relationships, families, workplaces, communities, and the Earth as a whole.
