This is from Maps to Ecstasy by Gabrielle Roth:
In many Shamanic societies if you came to a Shaman or Medicine Person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited or depressed, they would ask you one of four questions: When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?
Where we stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence is where we have experienced the loss of soul. Dancing, singing, storytelling and silence are the four universal healing salves.
