“There is a language older by far and deeper than words. It is the language of bodies, of body on body, wind on snow, rain on trees, wave on stone. It is the language of dream, gesture, symbol, memory. We have forgotten this language. We do not even know that it exists.” -Derrick Jensen
Do these words speak to you?
Do they carry images or impressions?
Do resistance or curiosity arise?
Do you concur that our true language has been forgotten–being replaced with billions of words?
Do you grieve the lost language of the heart?
Tell us a story of your true heart-language…
Beth, VTH Host
