Quote for Today: Toko-pa Turner

Unlike the many shamanic cultures that practice dreamwork, ritual, and thanksgiving, Westerners have forgotten what Indigenous people understand to be cardinal: that this world owes its life to the unseen. Every hunt and every harvest, every death, and every birth is distinguished by ceremony for that which we cannot see, feeding back that which feeds us. I believe our epidemic alienation is, in good part, the felt negligence of that reciprocity.
