Transcript after the jump.

Dear Baba Yaga,

How can I transform pain of severe trauma in the past into peace for the present and hope for the future?

BABA YAGA:

Each wound is living aware of itself. The living feels intensely its edges. The edges seethe to be well. ; The wellness when it comes is, then, the supreme gift ; & the wellness remembers the deep living of the wound, & so is happier than any easy health.
