Crisis as Initiation
Dear Santa Barbara and Montecito community~
We have come through a most devastating time for our town and local area, first the fires and then the heartbreaking tragedies surrounding the mudslides. We find ourselves at the mercy of the power of the elements and forces of nature - fire and air, water and earth. Some of us have experienced acute trauma and unbearable loss and others have experienced secondary trauma and grief. We have all been affected. Grief is a given, and many of us have been stricken.
