"Healing diseases of the spirit requires that we honor and nurture, not neglect, the emotional and spiritual well-being of all Creation, not just our own. It requires nurturing our souls and opening our hearts — restoring self-esteem and love of others. In our surroundings this requires the honoring of the materials, the elements and forces of nature, the rhythms and cycles of life, the users of a place, and other forms of life.

"All things done with reverence restore health, provide nurture, and enhance well-being."

To Practice: Identify ways you can help heal the diseases of the spirit in the place where you live.
