Contact Info

There’s a story of an old man who is dying and he calls together his people to his side.  He gives a short, sturdy stick to each of his many offspring and relatives. He instructs them to “break the stick.” With some effort, they all snap their sticks in half.  He tells them, “This is how it is when a soul is alone without anyone.  They can easily be broken.” The wise old man next gives each of his kin another stick and says: “This is how I would like you to live after I pass.  Put your sticks together in bundles of twos and threes.  Now break these bundles in half.”…No one can break the sticks when there are two or more in a bundle.  The old man smiles…”We are strong when we stand with another soul.  When we are with another…we cannot be broken.”

–Clarissa Pinkola Estes in Women Who Run with the Wolves
