“I believe that the individual of the future, like the individual today, faces the lonely task of transforming himself with or without the agreement and understanding of those around him.

He needs only to know transforming himself means coming up against internalized cultural edges (beliefs that are not his in origin). If this is to occur, he will have to disturb the status quo of the world around him as well.”

Arnold Mindell, The Shaman’s Body
