“The therapist’s attitude of working with analytic curiosity towards understanding and insight is the essential factor that shapes the therapeutic situation, and makes possible the therapeutic value both of non-interpretive activities and of formal declarative interpretations.”

Warren Poland

“We can make our minds so like still water that beings gather about us that they may see, it may be, their own images, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life because of our quiet.”

– William Butler Yeats



You can hold back from the

suffering of this world

and you have permission to do so,

and it is in accordance

with your nature,

but perhaps this very holding back

is the one suffering

you could have avoided.


– Franz Kafka
