‘The Role of a Competent Guide’

‘When we descend into this place of darkness we need to be accompanied by someone who is competent. Otherwise, we won’t have the strength to look at our shadow areas and to cope with them. They are too frightening! But in gentle dialogue with a competent person, we will gradually connect with this world which up to now has been hidden from our consciousness.’–Jean Vanier, Seeing Beyond Depression, p. 65
