Ram Dass on the Witness

“The question we need to ask ourselves is whether there is any place we can stand in ourselves where we can look at all that’s happening around us without freaking out, where we can be quiet enough to hear our predicament, and where we can begin to find ways of acting that are at least not contributing to further destabilization.”

Ram Dass

A lot of therapy is about this….Supporting people in finding this foothold in themselves, perhaps especially in trauma work.
